Hydrogyn - Redemption

Hydrogyn are back with a new studio album 5 years after “Private Sessions”. The major change on the new album is the new vocalist Erica Parrott that has also affected the band’s music style. Nowadays, Hydrogyn follow a modern groovy metal style that doesn’t fit them at all… or in other words, this kind of modern heavy music with...

Hyborian to release debut album “Hyborian: Volume I” on March 17th 2017

Having been through so many phases and transformations throughout the years, it seems that often, heavy metal music can seem over-complicated - too complex, showy or pretentious.

Cedar Boulevard - Turn to Stone

Really I’m curious about bands like Cedar Boulevard. Firstly why pickup that name when it could be very easily made fun of? But I digress. The brain child of Aussie guitarist Luke Sharp, who ain’t half as bad, Cedar Blvd, doesn’t seem to be entirely sure of what style to follow.
