Interview: Atom Smasher

Atom Smasher zählt zu den Bands, die Aidan und ich ohne jegliche Einschränkung großartig und zu 100% Epic Metal Blog-kompatibel finden, nachzulesen auch in meinem Review der Debüt-EP The Age of Ice (2020) sowie auf unseren Newcomer– und EP-Bestenlisten aus dem zurückliegenden Jahr. So war es nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis wir das Duo […]

Review: Grendel’s Sÿster – Myrtle Wreath/Myrtenkranz

Release: 2019/10/01 Dass Vertreter des klassischen Heavy Metals auf Deutsch singen, war und ist eine Seltenheit. Die Gelsenkrichener Iron Kobra haben mit ihren drei Liedern in deutscher Sprache zwar einen soliden Anfang gemacht, aber Versuche anderer Bands in dieser Kategorie sind entweder nicht nennenswert oder man sollte sie am besten schnell wieder vergessen. Grendel‘s Sÿster hinterlassen mit ihrer zweiten […]

Interview: Hammer King

Es gibt Bands, zu denen hat man einfach eine tiefere emotionale Verbindung. In meinem Fall zählt Hammer King aus sehr persönlichen Gründen dazu. Schon allein deshalb liegt es auf der Hand, dass ich mit der Speerspitze des „Royal Metal“ einmal ein längeres Interview für unseren Epic Metal Blog führen wollte. Da die Truppe aus Südwestdeutschland […]

Interview: Greg May (Tyrant)

In 2020, Tyrant finally released their fourth studio album: Hereafter. It was their first full-length after 24 years – and their first record with Robert Lowe. As you probably know, I already had the opportunity to interview the ex-Solitude Aeturnus and ex-Candlemass vocalist for our blog. We talked a while about Tyrant but also a […]

Interview: Runemaster

Today, we may present to you an interview with Scottish heavy metal band Runemaster. In 2020, the quartet from Edinburgh released its first full-length record, called Wanderer. In my opinion, it was one of the best outputs which can be labelled as traditional metal with a lot of epic elements. If you don’t know these […]

Interview: Manolis Karazeris (Dexter Ward)

When I listened to Dexter Ward’s latest output III for the first time, it blew me away. Even after a lot of spins, nine months later, it’s still an engrossing album that never bores me. For me, it’s one of the best records released in 2020, no doubt about it – and it contains a […]
