Bergtatt will have to postpone their performance due to family reason... a positive reason of course. (see below). So, MFVF announces that Evig Natt will join the Metal Female Voices Fest line up.

Friday October 28th 2016: The Mission (UK) - 30th Anniversary tour + 80’s New Wave Party! Finally Bringing them back to Belgium!

  Van Muylem    31 maart 2016

If you think that The Sisters of Mercy is not your cup of tea anymore, than you should for sure come and see this one stage! The Mission still rocks and you’ll notice pretty fast what other bands are missing! They still rock and still produce great albums! 

Last band for MFVF announced! See the full list of bands at the end of this flash!

  Van Muylem    30 maart 2016

Last band confirmed for the Metal Female Voices Fest in Wieze (Belgium): ANCIENT MYTH from Japan. Once again it's a bdn whom I have never seen, so it's pretty clear that the festival wants to show us a lot of special and fresh bands of bands that have never played in Belgium (and yes: eve...

Concert and party update from Purple Moon Productions and The Invitation:

  Van Muylem    30 maart 2016

Since the recent reboot of Purple Moon Productions and The Invitation we can say that the black scene has been enriched by experienced organisations. They hope the good vibe comes back and would love to see the scene florish again! Check out the calender and see for yourself:

White Miles – The Duel (Long Branch Records/SPV)

  Van Muylem    27 maart 2016

I saw them as warming up band for John Garcia in Ghent, it was hot and they played like on fire so I absolutely wanted to review their next album! Well, here it is!

Rammsier - Blackflowers EP

  Van Muylem    23 maart 2016

Rammsier is a project by Ben Rammsier, to create music: altering mind and soul, and if needed, reality. Marilyn is the voice of this project and often reminds me of the title track from Twin Peaks. The music is pretty soft with a lovely and very gentle touch of dark wave.

Crematory – Monument (Steamhammer/SPV)

  Van Muylem    17 maart 2016

I adored Antiserum, but the twelve tracks on Monument are more based on brute guitar riffs and hard-as-nails drum grooves, dark keyboard hooks and a perfect mix of growls and clear vocals (with a new singer): some in English, some in German!

Rhenium – Rise Above The Sea

  Van Muylem    16 maart 2016

Apparently some artists noticed that I make a lot of promotion for the Metal Female Voices Fest in Wieze, just as I review and interview as much bands as possible (who will play in October). One of the bands who also asked to figure on this festival is Rhenium and also contacted me (if I would re...

The 69 Eyes – Universal Monsters (Nuclear Blast Records)

  Van Muylem    14 maart 2016

Your man already reviewed a lot of CD’s, interviewed the band and was looking forward to get some new stuff, well: here it is and for some it will be something fresh and catchy!

Freedumb – Feeding the Tapeworm (Tonehjulet Kräftpest)

  Van Muylem    13 maart 2016

Freedumb has its origins in Østfold (Norway) and deliver intense punkrock / hardcore. Feeding the tapeworm is a bundle of stories about the destructive dark sides of humans, with lyrics dealing with intoxication, regret, blackout, suicidal thoughts and distance infatuation. Musically the b...
