Lacuna Coil, Cellar Darling & Sin Heresy at Dom Omladine Beograda (Belgrade, Serbia 11/13/17)

Once again the Serbian metal scene gathered to witness for the very first time the visit of one of the most iconic gothic metal bands in Europe, it’s almost unbelievable that after near two decades of existence Lacuna Coil visited Belgrade for the very first time until 2017. The reason why until now they are able to play in Serbia still puzzles me, but regardless of that, the show and the reception from the crowd was massive and positive.   Read the rest of this entry »

Anathema & Alcest at Dom Omladine Beograda (Belgrade, Serbia 10/23/17)

Patience seems to be a virtue that the metal scene in Serbia has learned to master through recent years as tours quite often don’t visit this part of the Balkans. With that being said, the Anathema and Alcest tour was received with excitement and enthusiasm when the tour stopped at Dom Omladine in the center of Belgrade last October 23rd.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Rise of Leyendas – Leyendas Del Rock festival Day 1 (Villena, Spain 08/09/17)

After an almost 9-hour road trip from Santiago De Compostela to Villena, crossing beautiful Spain from north to South, I was ready to experience my first ever Leyendas del Rock and my first Spanish metal festival experience. I wanted to visit Leyendas because they had the strongest Spanish metal line up I have ever seen, and if you like me, grew up in Spanish metal, you will know that except for 1 or 2 bands, Spanish metal bands never tour the US. So Leyendas was the perfect opportunity to see them all in one place.  Read the rest of this entry »

Fleshreaper – Casketastrophe (2017)

On April 6, 2017 Fleshreaper released their first full-length album. It’s been about two years since their demo One Day Closer to Death… End of the Joke was released and it’s great to see them proceeding and putting out more music. This is especially good news if you like a heavy, gross, and punk style to your music.

Dianne van Giersbergen discussed the US tour and Theater of Dimensions

German/Dutch quintet Xandria recently finished their first ever US Headlining tour, a tour that took them to revisit places they played along with Sonata Arctica and Delain back in 2014, and to discovered new cities and fans across the US. It was a risky move to headline a tour in the US after their first ever US tour back in 2014, but it seems they pulled through fine and delivered powerful shows at every venue they played.

Wednesday 13 at The Marquis Theater in Denver, CO (6/18/2017)

Seeing Wednesday 13 live for nearly four years now, I can say that the band steps up their performance every time. With multiple different lighting schemes, smoke machines, the band members in sick stage outfits and ghoulish makeup, and Wednesday wearing different accessories, including masks throughout the set, fans are in for a very theatrical and fun experience. Their show on Sunday night was incredible as usual, and the only thing that was disappointing to me was that their set seemed to fly by so quickly due to how much I was enjoying it.  Read the rest of this entry »
