Rioghan - Breath - Video Cover

Pretty much one year ago, Rioghan appeared on our radar with her 2021 blurb Blackened Sky. The RMR crew was greatly impressed by the insane talent on display from someone so young. So, our valiant scouts kept a sturdy lookout for that first album that certainly should drop at some point.

And indeed, Different Kinds Of Losses has been announced for later in 2022.1) This is splendid news. Apart from the apparent involvement of one Einar Solberg, whose new-found style clearly didn’t garner any brownie points over here.2) At all. Let’s just hope that those annoying … [...] Click to raid more!

For some reason, the long-standing extreme metallists of Septicflesh never made it onto the RMR ‘zine. To find the reason for that decidedly unhappy development is difficult to discern.

Aephanemer truly rewrote the way Melodic and Symphonic Death Metal is looked at today. The band rapidly went from unknown shredders to a known value by which the speedy factions of these genres shall be measured. Now, they are back with Panta Rhei, a first glimpse into their upcoming record A Dream of Wilderness, out in November 2021.

Usually, I am not too fond of the metal-band-in-a-cave theme with extended theatrics by hairy metal band dudes and dudettes. Yet here, first ’tis a modern cave with screens, so they’re forgiven.

But more importantly, the riffing and the stellar … [...] Click to raid more!
