Interview: Æternia

English version below Es ist immer wieder schön, wenn neue Bands quasi aus dem Nichts auf der Bildfläche erscheinen, um einen gleich mit ihrem ersten Release komplett zu begeistern. Dies ist vor einigen Wochen Æternia aus Siegen gelungen – ihre Debüt-EP The Quest gehört meiner Meinung nach zum Besten, was in diesem Jahr in unserem […]

Æternia – The Quest

Release: 20/07/2022 This year, as we have written about elsewhere frequently, has seen the release of many excellent EPs. And fortunately, the year 2022 has even more to offer.

Review: Sorcerer – Reverence

Release: 10/12/2021 English version below Heute vor vier Jahren starb mit Warrel Dane (Sanctuary, Nevermore) ein Ausnahmesänger, der in unserer Szene eine nicht zu schließende Lücke hinterlassen hat. Mein Kollege und Freund Aidan hat im letzten Jahr auf unserem Blog mit einem sehr emotionalen Beitrag an dessen dritten Todestag erinnert. Mancher mag sich nun fragen: […]

Live Report: Riddle of Steel (Part II)
