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).

Skinsitive – Somebodies

  Van Muylem    26 februari 2016

Skinsitive is a French female fronted rock/metal band with influences From PJ Harvey and Nine Inch Nails. The lyrics jump from English to French (can’t hide the French tongue, honestly). Drama and melancholia are good fuel for this rocker!

The Unguided – Lust and Loathing (Napalm Records)

Hell yeah!!! A new album from the Unguided is always a party and always something special, just as the great artwork for the album! Lust and Loathing sounds like the perfect title for this one! But it’s also time to think about sad stuff that happens and changes one’s life in the blin...

Krisiun - Forged In Fury

 Filip Vanhoof    19 februari 2016

Evolution.  Gradually, metal evolved from pure fury and aggression to melody.  A lot of bands that used to play straight forward death metal with deep growls and massive riffs have evolved.   All because of that big scary thing called melody.  You can hear it in the riffs...

  Van Muylem    16 februari 2016

The last time (and my first time) that I reviewed them was in 2011 with Back To Thrill. As I liked their sound I kept on following them, but missed one album. Well, Kiss & Hell, the new album by Austrian punk´n`roll act Kitty In A Casket was worth waiting for!
