Classiscal features, such as interviews, reviews
Marco Pastorino of Temperence: "We are not using any guitar in the backing tracks and also no vocals and choirs in the backing tracks." Now that is a statement in the times of an overload of backing tracks and lip sync by far too many bands.
Today we review the newest release of Italian Symphonic Metalists Temperance. “Hermitage - Daruma's Eyes Pt. 2” contains 14 songs. They tell the story of the protagonist Victor catapulted into the magical village Hermitage by finding the Japanese doll Daruma.
Enjoy three excellent bands in a row: Atavistia's sound is best described as Melodic Death Metal. We get Metsatöll from Estonia and a really fine kind of folk metal. Skálmöld invite you to a journey to the land of unicorns, elves, Nordic sagas and gods. They had just released their latest album “Ýdalir”.
Support your local scene,. Have a look at the local clubs and venues. Check out their programme. Even if the band's music is not 100% to your taste, give it a try. Go and see them for the good of your local music scene. You are the after-Covid generation and it is your duty to revive small clubs and local bands. You pay little money for a lot of music. And you never know, you might have seen the next international superstars at one of their first shows.
Last time I met them on the Rock & Metal Day’z at Oscherleben when they opened the festival on Thursday evening. There they had already announced an autumn tour. Now the time has come, Friday evening, 29th Septmber 2023. We are right here at Café Central in Weinheim for the first show of April Art Change Tour 2023.
That is the perfect entertainment, a real Rock and Roll party. Usually, when a show is over and you got to go home, you leave after the last note or latest after buying your piece of merch or a CD. Not this time, Fire Rose join their audience immediately after the show. They also offer a free drink in form of a cask of apple wine to raise the glasses together for the sake of Rock and Roll music. It will take hours until the last guest leaves the venue...
Today we have the great honour to present you the review of an album, hand forged by our most beloved Swiss guys. We are talking about Fire Rose's "Blood On Your Hands". We link our impressions to the words of Simon "Simi" Giese, guitarist and founder of Fire Rose. Most of the songs are well known to Fire Rose's audience as they are a constant part of their live repertoire, but it will be interesting to find out if the studio tracks have the same energy as the powerful and driving live versions that Fire Rose are loved for by their growing fan base.
