Antioch, the name of many towns and cities all over the USA, and a couple of other, more ancient settlements in Asia. But most of all, the city of Antioch, in the southern part of Turkey, is seen as the “birthplace of Christianity”. The first crusade was set to Antioch and the Swedish band Throne Of Heresy is ready to go there again with their second full-length album called… ‘Antioch’.
You could say a lot about the pagan metal band Varg, but you cannot say they lack humor. Right before their 2016 release of the new album, the German wolf metallers recorded the ‘Rotkäppchen’ EP. It contains their original, German, little red riding hood track, but also an English, Norwegian and a beer hut version. Long live Oktoberfest, Varg, Germany, ‘Rotkäppchen’ and beer!
Last year the Belgian Thrash Metallers of Guilty As Charged released their debut album called ‘Leap Of Faith’. Doing everything themselves, without any help of a label at all. It’s a big step and also a great adventure for a young band like this. Hoping for a place in the Red Bull Bedroom Jam, bassist Hannes de Caluwé has found time to talk about everything that’s going on. “It all took a lot of time and it has absorbed quite a lot of money, too, but we’re very proud of what it has become!”
