  1. A while ago we played our first show. Our 2nd Release, the "Fury - EP" is coming out a few months from today, I am stoked so I think it's a great moment to share some content. If you like it you can follow us on Facebook, Bandcamp or Spotify (also "The Grey" Demo is on there). Cheers.
  2. Láðspell is a two piece created to explore the darkest parts of human history and folklore. Their first song of their upcoming album is titled "Peshtigo". The song is a retelling of the massive fire that consumed over 1,500 people. The song can be streamed at the link below. https://lowthspell.bandcamp.com/track/peshtigo More to come soon.

  4. Sorry deathstorm, I don’t like it. It took me a while to come round to Amaranthe. I first heard them when they were announced for the roster of ProgPower XIII and thought they sounded too poppy, sage musical critic that I was. I did entertain the idea that that was the entire point, but dismissed them as being too technically lacking in any case. Their second album, The Nexus, featuring the least inventive album art I’d seen in a while, was a marked improvement, with its title track nearly a total ripoff of the leading single from their self-titled debut but a demonstrably better take. Everything was more or less the same, just done right. The riffs were on point, there were a higher proportion of peppy bubblegum tracks that sounded like Cascada doing djent (or just a slightly less sugary Blood Stain Child) – it was their best album. They followed this up with Massive Addictive, a somewhat weaker but nonetheless slightly different album with a couple tracks that sounded like they could have been composed by MrWeebl. As far as third albums went, it wasn’t bad – and the slow songs were actually all rights, even on the acoustic versions. It was also a little closer to regular melodeath. That brings us to Maximalism. In principle, the concept behind this album is fine. Amaranthe always imitated pop, so why not imitate current pop? It could inject some life into this worthless moribund slurry of pink noise that the post-Trump miasma has been nice enough to slowly excrete over this most recent tax period. I mean, the only way this would could fail is if modern pop were so limp-wristed and ineffectual that even the nuclear cocaine infusion of metal failed to resuscitate its bloated heart. Whoops. It’s fascinating how one can avoid actually discussing the album for so long here just because of the hilarious incidental commentary. All of the songs here a poppy in an obligatory sense, rather like the current generation of pop. I remember hating Ke$ha back in 2012 when she was big, but hearing “Tik Tok” after a bleak slog through a bunch of mopey nonsensical dogshit and limp-wristed soggy whining is a godsend. At best, Maximalism is a poor man’s version of their previous output, and at worst it’s an imitation of modern pop in the sense that you don’t remember anything about it other than that it sucked. Anyway, what about the actual songs? “Maximize” is a terrible opening track. On one hand, it’s a pale imitation of the band’s previous pop-metal efforts, with all of the elements watered down – and on the other hand, it’s about as close as they get to their previous work. Compared with the other songs on the album, it’s not bad, but using it as an opener sets the listener up for disappointment. I remember thinking “well, that was kinda weak – let’s see what else you got” and then Maximalism kinda shuffles its feet before presenting the listener with a couple of nearly uncut metal tracks. Well, that’s not quite true. “Boomerang” is pretty fun if a little repetitive. Watch the music video because it is definitely the funniest I’ve seen in years. Oddly, Elle King seems to have been one of the stronger influences on this album. The combination of rhythmic country/blues-type riffs and poppy choruses has been combined with metal plenty of times before, but that doesn’t mean Amaranthe aren’t willing to take a few whacks at the deceased equine. It’s OK, I suppose. “21” is passable. “On the Rocks” is good, although the “na na na” shit certainly triggered an allergic reaction that clouded by judgment of the song for some time. The other tracks are a relatively dull mixed bag. “Limitless” has a dreary false energy and an utterly forgettable chorus. In other words it’s an excellent imitation of the vast majority of Daya’s work. “Fury” is the least poppy song on here, more or less just a modern melodeath tune. It works on its own merits, but it’s not particularly interesting. “Faster” is attempting to be an Amaranthe song and sorta falling short. The chorus is melodic, but it doesn’t work for me. There’s one track on here that instantly distinguishes itself as the worst song. “That Song”, the same old song. Too damn right. It is the same old song, the same old song I’ve heard from those perennially overpublicized Nevadan jackoffs they call Imagine Dragons. I usually despise songs made by these guys on the basis that they're trying to make powerful music but invariably fail because they're imitating a genre that sounds better with distortion. Amaranthe were nice enough to prove to me that even a bonafide metal band can make a song worthy of an Infiniti crossover. Let me be a little more clear-headed here. This isn’t, strictly speaking, a bad album (except for That Song, of course). Part of the bridge from “Supersonic” is all right, sounds kinda like Queen. The fact that the best song on this album is “Break Down And Cry” is a semantic joke the band have made for me, but it’s good nonetheless. Pretty strong keyboard and a decent chorus. “Endlessly” is a genuinely good ballad if a bafflingly austere end to the album. These tracks are…sorta catchy, and competently performed. “Fireball” is a good example of what I’m talking about. It’s a perfectly good song. The problem is that it’s not a good Amaranthe song. An Amaranthe song should be an earworm that you have genuine trouble dislodging. None of the songs here have that quality. “Drop Dead Cynical” and “Digital World” from the previous album were quite memorable despite being relatively weaker than previous work, but nothing on Maximalism sticks out like that. If you want a modern artist to imitate, go for someone energetic and chirpy like Allie X or Ariana Grande and imitate their best songs. All I’m asking for is a metal version of Greedy, because that song’s sexy as hell. Bottom line, Amaranthe are at their best when they’re being as bubblegum as possible, and this album sees them stray farther from that aim.

  10. Hey all, My name is Evan Jaslow and I'm the former Prog Guru of OnlineDrummer. Nowadays I have my own website where I sell my drum transcriptions. Naturally, I specialize in progressive rock, with my most notable product being a full transcription of Dream Theater's Images and Words. As a whole my selection isn't huge, but what I do have is top-quality as I spend a lot of time (possibly too much) proofreading and re-uploading new versions. There's a selection of free material for download as well, and I do take requests for a fee. Thanks for reading! http://www.jaslowdrumsheets.com/

  17. With their previous release, "Deathless", Revocation truly found their identity and put out an exceptional record, using diverse styles along the way. "Great Is Our Sin" has taken Revocation's brand of music to an even higher level. It's progressive, it's technical, it's melodic, it's heavy; it's everything you could ask for from a metal band. For the most part, the songs have very complex structures, using melodies in every which way possible, taking progressive breaks at appropriate times, and using various rhythms to get the most out of the music. But, more importantly, the songs are not repetitive in sound or palette at all. Dave Davidson and Dan Gargiulo drew from their many influences, including jazz, blues, thrash metal, death metal, and much more, and carefully put together this album. Also, Brett Bamberger and Ash Pearson held together the rhythm section, using the creative freedom they had in order to complement the guitar playing of Davidson and Gargiulo masterfully. To really put the icing on the cake, Davidson's soloing, once again, blew my mind and brought me to places I have never been. He really has a gift for taking a song and using every aspect of it to his advantage in composing a solo, and he never ceases to further his technical ability and creative genius. Beyond the instruments, Davidson's vocals are as powerful as ever, firing a barrage of chilling screams and deep growls throughout the entire album. Furthermore, the lyrical content stayed interesting, as always. The lyrics mainly criticize contemporary society, exploiting social class prejudices, greed, mass ignorance, and an overall corrupt people. However, there are odd nods in the direction of religion and history throughout the album. Overall, I find this to be a nearly perfect album. I know Revocation still has more potential and room for improvement, but I would recommend it to any fan of metal. It really impressed me.
  18. Hey everyone, there were no news for a long time! Finally, the full discography ("the flesh of forest crucified" 2008, "the symphony of the ultimate collapse" 2014 and "№3" 2015!) of the Max Shtanke melodic band Black October (ex-Alkonost, Winter Dream, White Midnight) is available on bandcamp: https://blackoctober.bandcamp.com/album/the-symphony-of-ultimate-collapse A press release of the full-lenght CD 2014 were stated: “It is the project of the current vocalist of the famous Russian pagan metal band Alkonost Maxim Shtanke, on which you will hear extreme melodic blackened beautiful death metal of the highest quality with its unique melancholic atmosphere and a sense of awakening at early spring morning, covered with dew drops and mist, after which you will find the brightest ray of risen sun breaking through your ghostly dream. Very much expressive and seething with emotions and a variety of changing colors this music for all fans of Omnium Gatherum and Embraced, although these are only approximate comparisons.”
