Review: Eisenhand – Fires Within

Release: 20.05.2021 Tu felix Austria! Wenn sich eine Heavy Metal-Band Eisenhand nennt, liegt sie bei mir schon vor dem Anpfiff mit 2:0 vorne.

Erfreulicherweise erfüllt die Musik sämtliche Erwartungen, die man im Vorfeld in das Quintett aus Linz setzt. Eisenhand verwöhnen […]

Review: Orodruin – Epicurean Mass (Re-Release)

Release: 28.05.2021 English version below Orodruin aus Rochester, New York, zählen zweifellos zu den talentiertesten Doom Metal-Bands der Gegenwart.

Da trifft es sich gut, […]
