I experienced four excellent bands though I focused on one band in particular. Ignea deserved and deserve all the attention they get and I really, really hope to see them again rather sooner than later with a full set. That doesn’t mean, I didn’t like the other bands, I just had my priorities with them.
The whole album 666 is so 80s and certainly relies on the skills of Kris Vega on vocals and Sonia Anubis on lead guitar. Kris’ vocals are outstanding and Sonia’s guitar skills undeniable and she still is so young! Songwriting seems to be based on Sonia’s excellent taste of music and her major influences as a musician.
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.
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.
SETYØURSAILS is a really interesting, promising and fresh band of four sympathetic musicians with a very impressive second album after their already powerful debut with “Enough” in 2018. Jules Mitch’s unique vocal style and personality surely dominates and carries the sound of both albums.
It is a hot and sunny June Sunday afternoon and I will watch a fantastic Brazilian Thrash Metal band tonight, supported by some Danish guys. We are talking about Crypta and their special guests Katla on the last show of the first leg of their Echoes Over Europe Part 2 Tour.
It took quite a while to release the album. Due to the circumstances and war in their Ukrainian home, it had to be postponed from 2022 to 2023. Now the waiting in over. “Dreams Of Lands Unseen” will finally be released and I am indeed quite impressed. Of course Helle’s outstanding vocals are the highlight of Ignea’s sound and I really appreciate the evolution of the band.
Pitch Black Sunset contains no fillers but only killers. Each song, even the very short ones, is a little gem on its own. The lyrics, even when wrapped in catchy melodies are very heavy stuff.
Today we will talk with Zsuzsa „Shakey Sue” Radnóti, vocalist of Hungarian The Hellfreaks. We would talk about hair dye, cats, tattoos, life style and a little bit about music and The Hellfreaks’ new album “Black Pitch Sunset”.
