Lists

Annet is always looking for music that takes her either on an emotional ride or gets her going on a musical party. In 2022 she found what she was looking for in the releases from bands like Kissin Dynamite, Killswitch Engage, Mantah, Alestorm, Sleeping With Sirens, Simple Plan, The Halo Effect, Electric Callboy, Avantasia and Parkway Drive!

Annet’s personal choice of best albums of the year 2019 brings a nice mix of accessible power metal, metalcore and modern metal releases. Check it out!

Album Reviews

Avantasia brings us with ‘A Paranormal Evening With the Moonflower Society’ once again an album filled with topnotch power metal. The choruses are very harmonious, and there’s power, there’s beauty, there’s calm, it’s all there.

Moonglow has so many emotions in it and over it. Happiness and darkness put together in a battle with each other. Simply Amazing. Well done Tobi and team Avantasia.

Voodoo Circle brings their first album with their new vocalist Herbie Langhans. A nice present for Valentine’s Day.

Festival Reports

The third and last day of the excellent Alcatraz fesival brought us even more top bands like Meshuggah, Voivod and Powerwolf.

What’s it like to be at a festival in the land of metal, Finland?!
