KONVENT – Puritan Masochism

Copenhagen’s rising death doom outfit, KONVENT, is set to release their highly anticipated debut album, Puritan Masochism, on January 24 via Napalm Records. Only a few days ahead of its official release, the band has just premiered another brutal-sounding appetizer with a brand new video! The Danish collective, founded in 2015, stoically trudges through the blackest mires – following in the footsteps of Mythic, Paradise Lost, Skepticism and Winter, who all unleashed the bleakest horror on mankind in the early 90s. Rikke Emilie List`s guttural vocals and tenacious riffing combined with menacingly heavy production make the debut by these four… Continue reading

Khymera – Walk Away

While Khymera started out as an alliance between Italian producer/musician Daniele Liverani and then Kansas singer Steve Walsh, it developed into a regular project when bassist and producer Dennis Ward (also a member of Magnum since summer 2019, ex-Pink Cream 69) entered the fold. Dennis had always sung backing vocals in his bands, so was more than willing to take on the lead singer role on the Khymera albums ‘A New Promise’ (2005), ‘The Greatest Wonder’ (2008) and ‘The Grand Design’ (2015). The project has been on hiatus ever since, but Dennis is now returning with a brand new album entitled ‘Master of Illusions’, which is… Continue reading

Joviac – Straws

Finnish progressive metal band Joviac is set to release their second album “Here And Now” on April 3rd 2020 by Inverse Records. Viljami Wenttola’s comments about the track: “Straws is probably the song that I’m most proud of on the album. It balances on a razor’s edge between pop and progressive metal, borrowing catchy and simple elements from the former and mixing them with memorable and nuanced elements from the latter. I learned a lot while writing this song, and it somehow pushes all of my buttons in just the right ways. The song deals with the harrowing experience of having a… Continue reading
