  Van Muylem    1 december 2015

It has been a while since I have been to Biebob. As for Arkona: I loved them already last time, Metsatöll was a must see for me (missed them due to traffic jam in Durbuy but ran into them and had a nice interview with them), Svartsot is a bit in the same line as Metsatöll and the Belgiu...

Editors – In Dream (PIAS)

  Van Muylem    12 november 2015

There was a lot of fuzz about the new Editors album, some critics teared down the album whilst others were literally in dreams with Tom’s voice and with the presented tracks. It’s for sure not an album loved by all, some fans might leave whilst others join the fan club … One ca...
