The Norwegians are at their eighth album, and they have been faithful to their style, they themselves refer to as «deathpunk» - in fact a combination of hard rock and punk. Not too many new things, but I think...

I hadn’t listened to a Spanish band in a long time and, as I am rather inclined towards this matter, I jumped on Silver Fist immediately. The first impact was impressive: a heavy/thrash in force, having its trump cards...

Svafnir is the solo project of Alexander Suplie, played almost entirely on clean guitar, with a style that is hard to pigeonhole in a genre. However, for classification’s sake, I’ll call it folk/pagan metal, to keep everyone happy. While...
