Album Reviews

After Volume 1 of ‘Acoustic Adventures’ came out in January via Atomic Fire Records, its follow up wasn’t far behind. Volume 2 focuses more on the faster tunes in Sonata Arctica’s catalogue, but is just as filled with tender emotions.

Sonata Arctica immortalized the acoustic versions of some of their classics on the new album »Acoustic Adventures Volume One«.

Another gem in the rich history of excellent albums that Evergrey releases into the world. Dense powerful music with deep emotional lyrics.

Delain brings a new album with quite an unique concept. Find out here how they did that.

Helix is surprising. It’s catchy and poppy. But also sturdy and material for head banging. Definitely give it a listen if you’re in for something new.
