  1. After two singles – 2014’s poppy “inner Enemy” and the somewhat more straight-laced “The Promise” in 2016 – Swedish progressive metal maestros Seventh Wonder have recently announced their new album “Tiara”. The release is being mixed by Oyvind Larsen, the man responsible for mixing on the already-mentioned singles. The album has undergone mastering by Jens Bogren at Fascination Studios. Bogren has previously worked with other progressive metal stalwarts such as James Labrie, Katatonia, Opeth and Symphony X. ( Frontiers Records will oversee the worldwide release of the 13-track concept album, including as a double LP. The band used the following lyrics in their promotion: “’We've watched you since the dawn of time, with every moment gone by. A million suns fade and die, this is the end?’ Beware, for they're coming..!” These are presumably an allusion to alien forces, given the cosmic imagery. The precedent for a concept album about exists in the band’s widely-lauded “Mercy Falls”, and more within melodic progressive metal more generally, perhaps most notably in Evergrey’s “In Search of Truth”, which also concerned aliens and isolation. Musically it’s very much in keeping with the band’s tradition. From the promo, the work sounds rather more like “Mercy Falls” than the preceding “The Great Escape”. It’s less melodic (of course this should be taken with a grain of salt given the general character of their oeuvre) but slightly darker than their previous work. From the musicianship I trust this will work; Anubis Gate attempted this in 2017 and failed, as did Adagio who despite employing the preeminent “dark prog” master Kelly Carpenter (Beyond Twilight, Darkology, Epysode, Outworld, Zierler) dropped their neoclassical edge and therefore their unique appeal. If anything it sounds like SW might be making the opposite ‘mistake’, but their style is developed enough that for them churning out the same stuff would be at least to my ears an entirely acceptable route. The tracklist is unknown, but Seventh Wonder’s promo video can be found here:
  2. Hello! I am Joel, the lead guitarist and songwriter from Coup de Grâce! Coup De Grâce is a female-fronted power metal band from Singapore delivering heavy metal with an eclectic, avant-garde dimension. From sounds ranging from fast-paced galloping rhythms to a symphonic experience, Coup De Grâce draws its influences from the likes of Iron Maiden, Nightwish and Iced Earth. We just released our EP today, 12/04/18. We are hoping for some thoughts on what you guys think? Maybe perhaps you can help us distinguish our genre? We are unable to classify ourselves but most of the people who listen to us call us a power metal outfit. However we have also been called Avant Garde Metal or Progressive Metal. I am the primary songwriter in the band and basically my aim was to encapsulate all my favourite aspects of metal into one sound. I love the dual harmonies of Iron Maiden, the crazy Djent stuff from Meshuggah, the uniqueness of Iced earth, the melodic, atmospheric feel of Nightwish and the odd timing beats of like Prog metal bands. Let me know what you guys think and do follow us on Facebook or other social media platforms if you like us! Thanks!

  3. Made a playlist on TIDAL and thought I'd share it with you all since there doesn't seem to be that much playlist activity on TIDAL! https://tidal.com/playlist/fe2e6ed2-f01f-4acf-beb1-01ef5003133e
  4. Hello fellow metalheads! Please check out my band Chain Home on youtube and soundcloud. We're a mix of trash and modern metal. Last week big Things happened and we've been given the honor of playing the Tons Of Rock festival Norway along With bands like Slayer, Sodom, Enslaved etc. Big Things are happening and I would really appreciate support! We are by no means a super skilled or experienced group, but we believe in ourselves and love what we do. Thanks already!
  5. Hey everyone!! Would like to present you my band SILUETLESS. We are from Lithuania and play music which probably can fit into progressive rock/metal genre, but actually it has influences of many other music genres. It's rich in atmospheric synth passages, melodic and dark vocals, heavy riffs and overall dark mood. Our latest album is called DRIFTING, released in October '16. Full album available on youtube (I will attach a video), but you can also check it on many digital platforms. The easiest way to explore the album is probably bandcamp https://siluetless.bandcamp.com/ Enjoy!! And please leave your comments! Thanks!!
