Lithos Sarcophagos – III

  Van Muylem    11 juni 2016

I reviewed this band (ages ago and aheum : band is not really the right word for this Swedish solo project), it was pretty cool to get the message that I could review the new EP. I have never seen this band on stage and regret it. They bring old school gothic metal. Daniel Dante did recording, mi...

Amon Amarth – Jomsviking (Metal Blade Records/Sony Music)

  Van Muylem    29 mei 2016

I must admit it’s the first time I review Amon Amarth and I know that they are for years working around the viking theme. I can say that these Swedish folks got me hooked from the first notes! The artwork is a real eye catcher and as you all know: a good eye catcher is the perfect start!

At the release of last year’s The Break Up! album, Erlend Eilertsen had promised us some new adventures! The new EP After The Break Up marks both the end of an era, and a brand new start for Essence Of Mind who are embracing the present and future with full energy and renewed dynamic scores...

Honeymoon Cowboys – Still! (Track & Traces/Starman Records)

  Van Muylem    9 mei 2016

It’s their debut album, but it’s not like they are newbies. To start with the singer: Tom Van Troyen (Spiral of Silence), I follow this guy for over years! In the past he sounded more like Joy Division and was already back than backed up by Antonio Palermo on guitar. You know Antonio ...

Mildreda - Coward Philosophy (Alfa Matrix)

  Van Muylem    8 mei 2016

As a 16 year old kid, Jan Dewulf started making electronic music in the early 90's. Named after a Flemish saint, Mildreda was a dark electro project following the Belgian tradition of bands like The Klinik. When I saw him for the first time on stage I got hooked to the sound and the performan...

Circuito Cerrado – Arrhythmia (Alfa Matrix)

  Van Muylem    3 mei 2016

It doesn't always have to be something with guitars, sometimes I get excited about good electronic music and today it comes from Mexico! Mexico’s Circuito Cerrado has joined the Belgian electronic music label Alfa Matrix. The band is the hard power noise project of Markko B., aka C-Lekk...

Terrolokaust – Dissensions (DWA)

  Van Muylem    29 april 2016

It has been longtime since I felt the urge to review something electronic. When DWA dropped this Spanish bomb in my mailbox I couldn’t resist! Terrolokaust presents us strong electro Industrial, real top notch stuff! I must say that Javi Ssagittar really did his stinking best to deliver us ...

Kamelot, Serenity and Aeverium, Trix, (Antwerp), 23/04/2016

  Van Muylem    24 april 2016

It has been a while that I wanted to see Kamelot on stage and after their last CD (a pearl): I marked this date! I saw recently Serenity at the Biebob and that made this double date even more interesting (as I totally enjoyed their show)! Aeverium has the duty to open up the show, never seen them...
