Interview: Vanaheim

I have already expressed in my 100% review that Vanaheim have released a fantastic album with Een Verloren Verhaal, which for me is clearly in the lead so far this year with Fer de Lance’s The Hyperborean. Against this background, I am extremely pleased that the band from the Netherlands has agreed to answer all […]

Interview: Theandric

Fortunately, you can always discover wonderful gems in the underground. One of them is Theandric’s EP Flight Among the Tombs, which already enchanted me during the first listen. Against this background, it is not surprising that we asked the band’s founder, Paul Tiseo, if he would like to answer a few questions for us. Luckily, […]

Review: Fer de Lance – The Hyperborean

Release: 22/04/2022 As announced, we present you two reviews of this album. Today it’s Aidan’s turn. In order to create a perfect record, a timeless piece of art, it is in my opinion is essential that it has an overarching atmosphere which in itself is conclusive and consummate. Due to this it is hardly surprising […]

Review: Böllverk – Heading for the Crown

Release: 22/04/2022 The German heavy metal band Böllverk is probably still unknown to most of our readers. The quintet from Aschaffenburg only exists since 2018 and has so far released an EP, Let’s Ride Till Dawn (2020), as well as their full-length debut Heading for the Crown. If you’re still looking for traditional-sounding acts in […]

Review: Powergame – Slaying Gods

Release: 18/03/2022 English version below Holla die Waldfee! Die Ostwestfalen legen auf ihrer dritten Langrille los, dass die Senne wackelt! Der Opener und gleichzeitig Titelsong knallt ordentlich! Messerscharfe Riffs schlitzen durch die Boxen, während die Soli in einem tobenden Feuersturm alles in Brand setzen! Und all diese leckeren Doppel-Tripel-Quadrupel-Gitarren-Leads und der Gourmet-Refrain! Für diesen feinen […]

Review: Fer de Lance – The Hyperborean

Release: 22/04/2022 It is certainly no exaggeration to claim that the vast majority of our readers are mainly waiting for two releases this year: Gatekeeper’s second studio album and Fer de Lance’s full-length debut The Hyperborean. The latter has already been in front of us for a few weeks – and I can already reveal […]

Review: Adamantis – The Daemon’s Strain

Release: 15/04/2022 written by Igor Jakobsen (Dreamslain) Having bought the Adamantis album Far Flung Realm after finding it at the Epic Metal Blog, I’m very happy to review their EP The Daemons’s Strain for the same blog. The 4 song ep was recorded by Jeff Stark (vocals), Evgeny Gromovoy (drums), Cody Pelchat (Bass) Javier Estrada (guitars) and Jeff […]

Review: Vanaheim – Een verloren verhaal

Release: 04/02/2022 Uit een diepe winterslaap, bemost en overwoekerdStaan de reuzen op en grijpen naar de machtHongerig naar mensenbloed verwoesten zij de dorpenWaar men weerstand biedtGevallen in de nacht Already before the Mead & Greed Festival 2022, I had dealt with Vanaheim’s first studio album Een verloren verhaal. However, due to a large pile of […]

Interview: Angel Martyr

This interview is to be considered as part of our recent Epic Metal Blog Birthday Special, honouring our co-editor-in-chief Aidan on the occasion of his 19th birthday. Unfortunately, however, we had to postpone our talk with Angel Martyr because one of the band members was confronted with private matters that are much more important. We […]
