Intermittent Digest – Tome IV

RockmusicRaider Reviews - Tome IVHowdy Fans and Friends! Yep! It is (already) time again for an update on what has been cooking at RockmusicRaider since Tome III. And there has been a lot of action, I can tell ya. It looks like Tome IV shows less influence of Black Metal and everything blackened. Even if this particular genre has whelped a few very good specimens worth mentioning. And I expect this to continue for the remainder of the year. But enough of this and let’s get down to what we got.

But first we take to the sea. The wild, cold sea. Rain drenched shores, ready to be invaded. Proud dragon-headed longships crawling with crazed, screaming RockmusicRaider Review - Amon Amarth - Jomsviking - Album Covervikings on the prowl.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Nemesea - Uprise - Album CoverI did not quite know what to expect. Nemesea‘s last production The Quiet Resistance did – well – not exactly exert the metal-infused pull one would have expected. At least not on all fronts – some tracks were right there, some sort of very dark Pop Metal infected with Gothic elements. Then judging by their about-face they made with In Control away from their Gothic Metal laden style displayed in Mana, it does not bode well for future records (and boy did I love Mana…). Now The Quiet Resistance held loads of dark promise. But what about their newest and 4th full length album Uprise?Got hooked? Raid this some more...
