Prong - Zero Days (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    14 juli 2017

I have been following this band for some years and have never been disappointed. As for today I can confirm that they delivered a new blast! The show goes on and the energetic power play stays tuned in! This is simply finger licking awesome!

Blind Guardian – Live behind the Spheres (Nuclear Blast)

  Van Muylem    8 juli 2017

Blind Guardian is one of those bands figuring on my wish list of must see on stage. I discovered them ages ago whilst playing the PS2 game Sacred 2 and was merged into a wide free world whilst listening to their music and was even able to see them on stage in the midst of the game: facing all kin...

Friends of Alice Ivy – The Last Days of Fenwyck

  Van Muylem    1 juli 2017

Our duo from Melbourne has been hiding for the past 3 years and now unveils a new sound, a new direction. Fans of nice music like Dead Can Dance will still be very enthusiastic, so don’t worry.

Pyrroline – In The Dawn Of Freedom (Electro Aggression)

  Van Muylem    30 juni 2017

Honestly: I have never heard of them, but got them together with the new Akalotz album (a pearl), so yes: I have to review this one. Arnte & Schmoun are the people behind this band and release their 4th album so far. They deliver old school electro industrial.

Akalotz – Confront (Electro Aggression)

  Van Muylem    30 juni 2017

Akalotz is a German Electro/EBM band from Kaiserslautern. I reviewed their first album, saw them perform as opening band whilst blowing off the stage the next band and thus I promised to review their next album. Their singer – Thorsten – was so kind to tell me in time and got me the m...

Anathema – The Optimist (K-Skope Music)

  Van Muylem    19 juni 2017

I saw them for the first time on stage at Graspop Metal Meeting and bought their album of the moment Judgement as soon as possible. Until now this album has been their best album ever, closely followed by Weather Systems. Last weekend I saw them again on stage at Graspop. Just as they told the cr...

Lovelorn Dolls – Lament EP (Alfa Matrix)

  Van Muylem    11 juni 2017

Kristell has been working recently on her solo project, but somehow felt the urge to return to her band: in full force! Brussels-based act Lovelorn Dolls rise from their ashes again like a phoenix and offer us a first and pretty noir appetizer to their forthcoming third album… Lament is pr...

Alestorm – No Grave But The Sea (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    7 juni 2017

I always loved this Scottish band as it was always fun and with No Grave But The Sea (their 5th album) we get a brand new best off filled with great pirate folk metal tracks! Oh, ho: not really a best off, but that’s how I feel it!

Mildreda – Cowards EP(alfa matrix)

  Van Muylem    1 juni 2017

I know this one since the 90’s. I was even the first one to get an interview with Jan Dewulf, back then a young & angry man with long and beautiful blond hair. Today most people know him from his remixes and from his other band Diskonnekted. Today he’s back with his first love: ha...

An Pierlé – Cluster (Consouling)

  Van Muylem    27 mei 2017

An Pierlé launches a new album and worked on the path she started with Arches (working it out with a modern organ as lead instrument throughout the whole album). I saw her this week on stage in the Church of Laken and totally enjoyed the sound and the performance, time for a review and thu...
