Album Reviews

Dødheimsgard’s sixth album “Black Medium Current” is a landmark in the realms of avant-garde music. Mastermind Vicotnik shows how versatile the band has become and delivers a trance-like atmosphere, hypnotic industrial beats embedded with beautiful synth textures, out via Peaceville Records! Don’t miss out on getting to hear some of this masterpiece live for the first time at Steelfest in Finland next month!

Zeal & Ardor is back with their blend of soul, gospel, blues and harsh music to prove that they’re not a one-trick pony that will get you bored.
