One of the bands that gets copied a lot these days is Soilwork. It doesn’t exactly help that vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid tends to grace quite a lot of bands, that sound like his, with a guest appearance. As a matter of fact, the French guys that play in T.A.N.K. (Think Of A New Kind) have been connected with Soilwork for quite some time now. After winning the European Metal Battle, playing summer festivals like Wacken Open Air in Germany, their Crowdfunding campaign for the tour after their third album ‘Symbiosis’ was successfully backed. Let’s see what people are so exited about.
A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the latest instrumental rock album by the German My Sleeping Karma. It was a real, relaxing piece of work that tried to kidnap and take you to an instrumental realm. Now the French respond with their view on instrumental rock music. The three piece of Glowsun is ready to rock with their new album ‘Beyond The Wall Of Time’, but are we ready for them?
We’ve got a first timer you guys! The French band Eltharia has asked us through our contact form if we could review their new album and who are we to deny each of us such a great chance. After quite a long time and some line-up changes, Eltharia finally release their second record: ‘Innocent’. Let’s see what they have in store for us!
2015 saw us some very fine releases already. Among them was the new record ‘Extinct’ from the Gothic metal pioneers Moonspell. Frontman Fernando Ribeiro was kind enough to pick up the phone to tell me, and you all, something about this new record, the songs on it and that Moonspell will not be going extinct. At least not yet.
