RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Meka Nism - The War Inside - Album CoverGothic Metal is dead, right? And all thunder got sucked out of Melodic and Symphonic Metal already, right? Dry heaves left only, and we look forward to the next Nighwish album with awful dread, right? Well, correct for Nightwish. But a firm ‘hell no’ as new talent goes. There is still hope on the horizon, whatever faint the outlook may be. 

Meet the Orlando, FL based, highly talented 5-piece Meka Nism and their newest EP The War Inside. This is one of these blurbs that kind of sticks to your frontal lobe and will follow you around. And worse still for a reviewer as yours truly. The review pipe is in a desperate state, yet you find yourself listening to this record for the second time in a row. There you go, proof of the pudding. They are good, outstandingly so.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

RockmusicRaider Video - Gone In April - Threads of Existence - As Hope Welcomes DeathThe US-based band Gone in April continue to work on the success and successful implementation of their 2016 record Threads of Existence. The band around Julie Bélanger Roy already issued a very well-crafted video called As Hope Welcomes Death not quite a year ago. This one dealt with deathly matters of the straightforward, earthly kind, if we can call it that.

Now, their latest concoction Our Future Line touches upon the realms of parental abuse, isolation, desolation, nightmarish visions and their creatures that haunt you along the way. The video tells a pretty gruesome, gory and tough story, based on one of the record’s best track.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

RockmusicRaider Review - Karkaos - Children of the Void - Album CoverIn 2017 the Canadian metal adepts Karkaos unleashed Children of the Void, their sophomore full length record. I really liked their somewhat peppery brand of metal, this mix between Arch Enemy infused Melodic Death Metal and loads of elements of Power Metal that always kept yer juices flowing. The band already released a pretty powerful video for Kolossos, the 3rd track of the album. 

Karkaos now doubled down with a new video called Tyrants. This is the grittiest of all tracks on this album, displaying a dark and sepulchral, yet speedy brand of powerful Melodic Death Metal. Some real crunch with a pretty staunch solo to boot. [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!
