Interview: SPELL

We are of course glad about every interview on our blog. But, and you may forgive me for saying this, there are interviews that are particularly close to my heart. That’s because this blog would never have come into being without the music of some bands. One of these bands is undoubtedly Spell from Canada, […]

Interview: Melissa Moore (Sonja)

It’s no exaggeration to say that Sonja are one of the bands of the moment in our scene. Just yesterday, the trio from Philadelphia was confirmed for the next warm-up show at the legendary Up the Hammers festival. Reason enough to talk to Melissa Moore about her band and all kinds of other things. We […]

Review: Sonja – Loud Arriver

Release: 23/09/2022 One could write several paragraphs about the genesis of Sonja at this point.

With this in mind, I was very glad to receive the promo of their new […]

Review: Flame, Dear Flame – Aegis

Release: 23.07.2021 English version below We are born in twilight, all forlorn, only rumbling from a heartbeat long ago. Es kommt nicht oft vor, dass mich ein Album bereits während des ersten Durchlaufes verzaubert. Flame, Dear Flame ist dieses Kunststück gelungen: Das Quartett aus Braunschweig schenkt der (Epic) Doom Metal-Welt mit Aegis ein hochemotionales Meisterwerk, […]
