Once upon a time, there was a band that seemed to have something very special going on. With a woman behind the microphone, the heavy Arch Enemy attracted people because of their music, and because of this screaming and grunting female appearance. The music business has changed since then. The metal world has been thoroughly convinced that women can, actually, scream, grunt and gurgle as good, or even better, then men. This is why the Belgian Spoil Engine shows off their freshly appointed vocalist Iris Goessens on their new EP ‘Stormsleeper’.
To all who think this is important: the symphonic metal band Nightwish will release their first single ‘Élan’ on the Thirteenth of February!
Nightwish will release their new album somewhere in the spring of 2015.
This will be the first album to be sung by the Dutch vocalist Floor Jansen. Also, drummer Jukka Nevalainen has passed on the recording of the album due to a severe case of insomnia.
His place behind the kit will be taken by Kai Hahto, mainly known from ‘Wintersun’.
