Sonata Arctica's "Acoustic Adventures Volume One" is an amazing album and even more an essential landmark in roaring turmoil! It is an reinvention of their classics and a statement against the fast-track life cylce in the metal biz.
Solacide's fantastic new album “Fall From Eternity” is inspirational, deep, and diverse. The band from Lahti takes us on a journey fighting our demons or battle with Vikings alike.
Obligatory Human Destruction is a modern Death Metal album in terms of combining groovy bass lines with sort of mechanic, metronomic drumming, somewhat static harsh vocals and layer over layer of amazing guitars!
Abstrakt's second full-length album "Uncreation" is a baroque abundance of operatic soundscapes meeting Black Metal which merely the soundtrack for the outstanding lyrics!
