Yeah, my favorite band AE, their new album was announced to come July 2022. Absolute brilliant three singles pre-released.
Found a new band via spotify, called IGNEA – a band from Ukraine. I really like the virtuous style, also transported very well in thier youtube videoa of their song ALGA
Another new release I found by chance is by a band from Sweden called Thyrfing. They appear to sing in Swedish (I guess). The new record named “Vanagandr” is a highlight – each and every song is great (at least for me).
Please check them out
I have found a new GERMAN band (at east they were new to me) – Mentalist. They do complex power metal (maybe well described as a mixture between Dragonforce and Symphony X). I have listened through the record multiple times now, and the more often I hear it, the more I like it. The record is called “A journey into the Unknown”.
FunFact: In the video “Modern Philosophy” they run through a forest which I think I do know – it is in the “Pfälzer Wald” with some trails leading to a cave or so – I think I wandered around there, too.
As a consequence of buying Marta’s solo album ‘Metal Queens’, I procured another four albums of Cristal Viper. I like their melodic style, although is is not necessary very hard. Of their record “Tales of Ice and Fire” I do love the song “Bright Lights”. If you think this is great music (like I do), go ahead and support them.
Today I bought the CD “Metal Queens” from Marta Gabriel, singer of the band Crystal Viper, that I like very much. It is a cover album, she covers 80’s metal songs sung by women (remark: most prominent one was Lee Aaron, which I liked when I was young (the Lee Aaron project- check out song : “Lady of the Darkest Night”, one of my fav’s those days)).
I like Marta’s album very much, it is powerful, has modern sound but still let’s me feel the 80’s (I guess that is because of the riffs used in the songs). I recommend you listen to “Max Overload” and “Call of the Wild” or also “My Angel”, which I like better that the one officially released on you tube (Count your blessings). Check it out!
After that long long Covid break, the first festival in Germany having a chance to take place is Bullhead City in Wacken.
But again, it was cancelled.
I have purchased tickets for a friend of mine and me and we are really looking forward to see the Guardians, Dirkschneider, Nightwish and Powerwolf. Personally, I will also see Jinjer, a Ukrainian band I have seen live twice already and which are really good (check out their recently published live album!).
I really hope Bullhead city will happen, we need culture and personal exchange. Please enjoy Jinjer live at Wacken.
I am in progress of rebuilding my internet presence. In the future, I will have my art / paintings here, but also a blog about heavy metal and gym sports, some playlists, opinions and other things that I am interested in. I have decided to do this, as I do no longer trust social media. I moved out of facebook and only occasionally visit and post on Insta.
I would appreciate if my friends and / or followers would follow this individual presence. See you soon in a new format!
