Album Reviews

At the end of last month, the Swedish metalcore legends Dead By April were finally back with their latest album ‘The Affliction’, another solid album that on the one hand surprises with some really cool collaborations with other bands and artists, but on the other hand doesn’t really bring in much new. If you’re a fan of the band, you’ll love this, though!

Tampere’s Everwave are giving us an early Christmas present, with their slow roasted second album ‘Another Lifetime’ which dropped on December 1st. They spiced up their existing sound with some new elements and took their music another step forward.

Chris Maragoth just released his first album, ‘Gatherer of Souls’. Some of the songs have already been released before, and have been remastered for this album. Some songs are brand new. This album contains mostly instrumental melodic death metal/modern metal tracks, worked on by Chris alone or together with other artists, bringing a lovely collection of melodeath-inspired modern metal tracks!

Twin Temple brings that old school sound and vibe of 50s rock ‘n’ roll/RnB/doo-wop back to life in a glorious way through their message of satanism and liberation on the second full-length ‘God Is Dead’. Satanic doo-wop is an official thing now, and we’re all there for it! 

On Hexa Mera’s new album ‘Methuselarity Part 1’, the music is solid and strong, carried on a bed of melodies, and is honestly beautiful to listen to. The album comes out this Saturday March 18 and the band will be doing a release show in Nijdorp, Opwijk on the same day! Be sure to check them out and hear this solid piece of music being played live for the first time.

The Florida rockers of Fortune Child are about to release their debut full-length ‘Close to the Sun’! Get ready for some good old-fashioned rock!
