Last week, I attended the Metallica—S&M2 film at the cinema in Dundee. It was magnificent; I must have smiled ear to ear all evening.Continue reading Metallica—S&M2
This evening I previewed the forthcoming album Peace In Our Time (2017) by British five-piece metal masters Krysthla.
Like their debut, this album is amazing. And like their debut, I also gave this 100%.
I fully intend to see them live on their UK tour in May. Who’s with me?
My annual review of what I’ve most enjoyed listening to during the last 12 months, and my albums of the year.
One of my favourite bands, Opeth, has a new album coming out this year, entitled Sorceress. This is the title track. It’s very heavy, very doom-y, very old-school prog.
I know that Opeth’s move from outright death-metal-style progressive metal to more 70s-oriented prog on Heritage (2011) divided the band’s fan-base. It took a while for me to really get into but I like it. But then I’ve always felt that bands should be free to do what they want, move in whichever direction interests them. And if I, as a fan, don’t like it, then fine—don’t listen to it. Listen to the stuff that you do like.
I’m really looking forward to the album being released on Friday 30 September.
The album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, where Queen recorded Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night At The Opera (1975), including “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
Guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt takes us on a tour of the studio.
I’ve recently started following Rob Scallon’s YouTube channel which is packed with fun stuff like this.
