The Kamelot fellas have done it again. We’re loving the new Kamelot song Insomnia, taken from their upcoming release Haven.
Leviathan – Scar Sighted
Profound Lore Records, March 2015
When it comes to one man black metal acts of note, few have touched the cult following garnered by Wrest’s musical monstrosity, Leviathan. Be it his sleuth of lo-fi black metal demo’s or his strictly dark ambient work in Silhouette In Splinters, Wrest has poured forth terrifying soundscapes that have always effectively reflected a strong sense of sincerity. When this sincerity is pondered in context to the material, it is all that more frightening.
Here’s the brand new video from Eclipse for the song I Don’t Want To Say I’m Sorry, off their new album Armageddonize.
Eclipse are fast becoming the most talked about band in the Melodic Rock circle, and rightfully so. Their songs stick in your head for days on end and their new album Armageddonize has been hogging way too much time in my personal music rotation for the past month. You know you have something special when every song could be a single. It’s that good.
Kamelot have unveiled the details for their next album titled Haven.
Haven marks their debut with Napalm Records (via a licensing agreement through their own Kamelot Music, LLC). The album was produced by long time Kamelot producer Sascha Paeth and was mastered by Jacob Hansen. Additional album guests include Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Troy Donockley (Nightwish) and Charlotte Wessels (Delain). Artwork is by Stefan Heilemann, with additional art/layout from Gustavo Sazes. Read More
The wait is over my friends. The video debut of Elan, the first single off of the upcoming Nightwish album Endless Forms Most Beautiful, has just been released.
