New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal

English version below Wenn man sich in den Sozialen Medien täglich mit dem Thema Metal beschäftigt, stößt man unweigerlich in regelmäßigen Abständen auf Diskussionen über die sogenannte New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal (NWOTHM).

From now on: Ratings on our blog!

After six months, there’ll be a significant change on our blog: From now on, you can find ratings at the end of our reviews (in%, like the Metallum does, for instance).

In remembrance of Warrel Dane

Originally posted on our Facebook profile (2020/12/13) Exactly three years ago, a legend left us, a true genius, Warrel Dane of Sanctuary, Nevermore, Sepent’s Knight and his amazing solo project.
