RockmusicRaider - Saille - V - Album Cover

Ah yes, they still exist. Bands that waste no time and just try to bludgeon you into submission with their mighty hammer of excellent blackened alloy. Blast beats that rumble comfortably across yer stomach, pitch-black tremolo fests, and rasps that scrape about yer earphones like so many pointed fingernails on a blackboard.

And I am not talking about these copycats that just go ahead, strum wildly on their downturned guitars, and try to hypnotize ye with needless drum work. The elaborate RMR selection process will only weed them out and show them the exit door out back. The one … [...] Click to raid more!

Stortregn Singularity Album Cover

It looks like the City of Calvin in Switzerland is a haven for Extreme Metal. I am sure that this would rub Mr. C the wrong way. But – alas – he’s gone for some time. And now there’s all that metal debauchery rampant in the streets of this lake-bound city with nobody to quell the surge.

Debauchery? Hell, no. If anything, you’ll find some serious guitar prowess around those dark corners. And Singularity will deliver its fair share, make no mistake. Stortregn really pulls that pedal to the metal right from the beginning. But more to that later.

And truly, … [...] Click to raid more!
