The written word is one of the vectors to get to the most popular posts, of course. But it is the musicians in the bands covered that really delivered their music with their hearts’ blood and essence of their mutual souls.

Vanha – Within the Mist of Sorrow (2016) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Vanha - Within The Mist fo Sorrow - Album Cover2016 was a pretty good year for all things doom, methinks. RockmusicRaider just released a review on the US band Khemmis and their kind of progressive and melodious doomish self. And – whoom – here we go again. The fearless RMR scout team just unearthed a tasty morsel of a similar ilk from very late in 2016. But mostly delivered in best, growly Doom Metal fashion – with clear vocals and croaks expertly mixed. And the team here thought that the slowly chugging beat of My Dying Bride could not be bested. But the Swedish act Vanha with their début Within the Mist of Sorrow are a sure contender to do just that.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Draconian – Arcane Rain Fell (2005) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Draconian - Arcane Rain Fell - Album CoverIt is winter time again. Well, not quite yet, but we are almost there. And it is definitely cold enough for my thin blood running in my veins. The countryside gets more desolate by the day with murky light and fog everywhere. The weather pelting you with rain, sleet and snow at Thor’s whim. And you ask yourself: Whatever happened to Freyr and his sunny ways?

So, what better time than now to look at an old(er) Doom Metal record with a Gothic flavor. Draconian‘s 2005 second full length album Arcane Rain Fell is a good one to start this series with.

This record really marks the turning point for the band!
