Every musical movement can be stripped down to three phases. The excitement, when a band with a new idea appears and takes the world by storm. The bloating, when seemingly every band takes that sound and runs into the ground.  And finally, the survivors.  Those that evolve until they are only loosely linked to the initial movement and are just ...

Review: Fractal Generator – Apotheosynthesis

There is one thing I love about this band and I haven’t even heard them yet! And that is their ingenuity for using the Binary system to create a biography and numbers to name band members!

Review: Dark Witch – The Circle of Blood

There is a difference between Heavy Metal and Power/Progressive Metal and some bands can pull it off and others not so well. Dark Witch fall into the latter category, as the tracks tend to sound very similar so it is difficult to determine one track from the next, although the chugs are good, the vocals tend to be rather weak in ...

Traditionally Saturday is the most ‘fun’ day at a festival, and looking at the line-up for today, Bloodstock 2015 shouldn’t be any different.It’s a bit sunny to be sporting black-metal face-paint but 1349 pull it off well.
