Munich’s Waldgeflüster unveiled a massive epos of atmospheric black metal this past October with the release of their fourth full-length album, “Ruinen.” Metal Exposure recently spoke with band mastermind Winterherz via Skype about his inspirations, his musical background, and the kind of work the band entails.. Read all about it here!
Incarceration released Sacrifice back in 2013, a short 3-songs EP, that received tremendous exposure due to its ear smashing riffs and oldschool feel, which is something a whole damn lot of folks out there are looking for. Followed the release were performances in some European festivals, some larger than others, thus enlarging the exposure the […]
With three full-length albums already under their belt, Waldgeflüster could certainly be considered one of the more established bands in this imaginary genre, and this brand of tree-worshipping, raw-throated music is, generally speaking, my jam. Yet oddly, when I was asked to review the band’s fourth release, Ruinen, I discovered that of all the myriad […]
I’ve always been a fan of genre cross-overs especially when the result of combining different styles creates something that is much more than just the sum of its parts. And Firtan are getting very close to this with their EP “Innenwelt” (German for “Inside Worlds”). So I won’t put any genre labels to their music. […]
It doesn’t get more underground than…well…a cavern, really. How befitting that the exciting and rather new (this is the second edition) Prophecy Fest should take place in the “Balver Höhle”. A cave where, (according to legend) the mystical and malicious blacksmith Wieland had his forge. With a very wide yet critically selected range in music […]
Hot weather and extreme metal either works like a charm on a festival (read: cooling beverages and good music) or it can be a curse in a small packed venue. Even though tonight’s concert leaned more towards the second option, we challenged the scorching heat to attend Marduk’s fourth Frontschwein European assault in Essen (DE), […]
It’s a long trip, all the way from the Netherlands to the Bavarian capital Munich. But we were willing to overcome Easter traffic jams and sore butts to check out the Dark Easter Festival in Backstage in Munich, Germany. The black metal alternative to Easter brunches with the family, you might say. With a promising […]
Easter.. the time for family and searching for easter eggs? Certainly not for us and certainly not for you either after we’ve informed you about Dark Easter Metal Meeting 2016! We, and hopefully you as well, will be spending Easter a bit differently, namely in Munich (Germany), while enjoying tunes of top metal acts such […]
Sometimes we come across albums that is hard to describe when it comes to saying what they make you feel. You know, those albums that you can keep listening to and where find new layers in the music every time you listen to it. An album that does not get boring, no matter how often […]
As reviewers have been raving about the new Obscura album Akróasis, it was a good moment for Metal-Exposure to have a chat with mastermind Steffen Kummerer. Beneath the abstract layers of this record, yours truly discovered astrophysics, philosophy, planets and stuff and a swordfish.. Read the interview!
