Sunday is the new Saturday, a friend told me a short while ago. He seems to be right, as we end up at a concert every Sunday afternoon. Today the gates of our local venue Willemeen in Arnhem opened for the devastating package of Archgoat, Bölzer, Svartidauði and Eggs of Gomorrh.. Read it all here!
Enslaved, a band that is perhaps the most condensed version of Norwegian metal, have made it all: black, Viking and progressive metal. Putting a style to their latest releases (Axioma Ethica Odini, RIITTIIR and In Times) is bit beyond me, the genre Enslaved (to) Metal should be introduced here. With E, the (co) flag bearers […]
What better way than to end a week filled with concerts, with one last gig? This Sunday evening we headed over to the town of Apeldoorn (NL), where Belphegor, Enthroned, Svart Crown, Nervechaos and Antropomorphia would set the night sky ablaze with blasphemous songs and satanic chants..

Fast forwarding a few years and we’re Party San Open Air 2017, August. Forecast wasn’t so nice, with rain showers for a few days, but what’s good about the new location is that even if it does rain (and at a certain point it was kiiiiiinda heavy raining), it doesn’t get as muddy as others […]
On a Thursday night, Dutchies from Arnhem and around painted their faces in war colors, took up their arms and marched to the venue Luxor Live, where the ‘Two Paths’-package of Wolfheart, Skyclad and Ensiferum would turn this regular weekday into a night to remember.. Read all of it here!
Arch Enemy‘s star is at its zenith: the Swedish/Canadian melodeath band has never been more popular, never (co)headlined as many festivals as of late with overwhelming (and over the top) performances. With musicians as guitarist-founder Amott, guitar wizard Loomis (ex-Nevermore) and charismatic vocalist White-Gluz (plus previous growler Gossow behind the wheel as manager), the group […]
In a little less than a month, Norwegian black metal band Satyricon will release its new record Deep Calleth Upon Deep. When Metal-Exposure got the opportunity to talk (albeit a little hasted) with Drummer Frost (Kjetil-Vidar Haraldstad) we of course took it. What followed was a conversation about the band’s ninth studio record, looking to […]
The Greek melodic death metal band Septicflesh has returned to the theatre with their 10th full length record: Codex Omega. Even though Communion (2008) is still seen as the band’s masterpiece, Codex Omega certainly lives up to the reputation of these Greeks making albums that are as devastating and dangerous as the thunderstorns that the […]
Music, for many, can be both a liberation and a road over which we continuously wander (or prowl?) while observing the many vistas it offers on the way (also while stopping to have one or two beers). An apt name for a band then, Der Wer Einer Freiheit, which translates as ‘the way of a […]
It’s not an everyday thing to find a Mongolian metal band performing at a mainly viking themed festival. So at Midgardsblot 2017 (Horten, Norway) Metal-Exposure talked to Nature Ganganbaigal from Tengger Cavalry about culture, the band as a community and more. Read the interview here!
