New Playlist: Divine Victim’s Metal Journey 2003-2021 (+ Bonus Tracks)

Tomorrow, on 30 March, a very special guy (in the most positive sense) turns 18 – which means «finally legal» in Germany: My great friend and fervent fellow epic metal warrior Aidan, also co-founder and soul of our Epic Metal Blog. In order to celebrate his birthday, I created a – quite long – playlist for him and, of course, you, our readers and social media followers, too.

It contains a bunch of epic songs released since 2003 that Aidan appreciates (or «should» appreciate, in some cases). There were only two major rules for me: one tune per year AND band – quite a difficult task, to be honest. 

Besides, you find some bonus material – tracks from artists that play an important role in Aidan’s life, and as a kind of epilogue, his personal «hymn» (on this platform and Instagram, his nick name is Divine Victim, as most of you surely know). 

Last but not least, you may listen to a track dedicated to his favourite football club VfB Stuttgart (nobody is perfect, but it could be much worse…).

So, enjoy listening – and don’t forget to raise your horns for Aidan on 30 March! Without him our Epic Metal Blog wouldn’t exist.
