In a time where bands tend to take themselves way too serious, there are always bands that willingly embrace ridiculousness. An example of one of these bands is Alestorm, the pirate metal band. But just like many musicians, Alestorm’s keyboard player and vocalist Christopher Bowes has other fascinations. He, and the rest of Gloryhammer, take us back to the distant future of ‘Space 1992: Rise Of The Chaos Wizards’ to show off their amazing skills.
In the modern Metal industry the so called female fronted metal bands are mostly long haired women with a high soaring vocals. Bands like Nightwish, Amaranthe and Within Temptation have thrived on that genre for quite some years now. But Scarved is delivering us something completely different. This female fronted rockband, formed around vocalist Caro, delivers us the powerful rock album ‘Dynamite’.
Sometimes there are these bands that do nothing new at all. They just seem to thrive on the success of a pretty much well-known sound of one, or more, bands. That’s the kind of band Smash Into Pieces is, but they have their stuff figured out alright.
“Anything standing between us and our dreams, we Smash Into Pieces”, the band states. A clear message you could say, especially when the “tough guy”pictures attract your attention. A Swedish band, with a mission, a mission to take over the world.
