Kamelot – Haven (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    2 januari 2016

Due to a lack of time I overlooked this beauty and now I can finally talk about the must see for 2016! Indeed: Kamelot has a new album and will tour a lot during 2016! I can already tell you that their new album is absolutely worth it!

Amaranthe – Breaking point B-sides 2011/2015 (Spinefarm/Universal)

  Van Muylem    2 januari 2016

Over the years Amaranthe gathered a lot of B-Sides and added bonus tracks to certain regions, making it hard for some to get them and now they decided to release them all in one. Yes, finally the time has come to discover the rarities and prove to some that they have a lot of potential!

Ewert and The Two Dragons – Circles (Sire Records)

  Van Muylem    1 januari 2016

Their previous record was released with the help of the I Love You Records and now they signed Sire Records A Warner Music Group Company! Isn’t that a gigantic step for an Estonian band? Do I have to remind you that Estonia has only a population of 1.3 million people?

Suicidal Romance - Love Beyond Reach (Alfa Matrix Records)

  Van Muylem    31 december 2015

Originally released in 2007, Love Beyond Reach is Suicidal Romance’s debut album which got mixed and mastered by Vasi Vallis (FROZEN PLASMA, REAPER). Today the reissue of this album in an extended edition including bonus tracks from the EP A Kiss To Resist, with special guest vocals by Jan ...

Analfabetism – Av Hjord Är Du Kommen (Malignant Records)

  Van Muylem    21 december 2015

It has been a while since I reviewed something that can be described as a mix between industrial and dark neofolk (genre No Festival of Light or even In Slaughter Natives). Sweden has always had that special touch with dark industrial and hellish soundscapes. Fredrik Djurfeldt (Severe Illusion) h...

Flesh & Fell – Stadscafé Excelsior (Jette, Belgium), 12/12/2015: a good try out is always a good start!

  Van Muylem    14 december 2015

It doesn’t happen much that I can go by foot to a concert and tonight it’s the try-out for the new Flesh & Fell tour. Not much people were aware of this and most of us got it directly from the band or from other followers of the band. Same goes for me and I live in Jette … ...

Draconian – Sovran (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    11 december 2015

I saw Draconian at the last edition of the Metal Female Voices fest in Wieze (Belgium), Heike Langhans proved that she was worth her place as new female vocalist. She brought new and old songs as if she wrote and composed them herself! She’s a real nightingale and now is the time to unveil ...

Amberian Dawn – Innuendo (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    15 december 2015

It’s the band's 6th album, released pretty short after their previous album Magic Forest. The sound is slightly different (lesser into musical and more into metal), they have evolved a bit. In my ears they sound much better and it looks as if they are ready to conquer the world and...

Leaves’s Eyes – King of Kings (AFM Records)

  Van Muylem    9 december 2015

Liv Kristine is back, after her solo album last year (Vervain), presenting the 6th studio album of Leaves’ Eyes! I can tell you that she got the help of Atrocity, Simone Simons, Linda-FayHalla and so much more! It’s really worth your money!

Aktarum – EP + Full CD: Game of Trolls (self-released)

  Van Muylem    5 december 2015

The guy’s from Aktarum describe themselves as Troll Metal from Belgium and are clearly influenced by bands like Metsatöll, Fintroll, Korpiklaani … Expect heavy stuff, grunting, spectacular riffs and great stories about trolls! I loved their gig in Vosselaar (Biebob) as opening b...
