Mantra reveal new music video for “Medium”

In what is perhaps a world first, French progressive metal band Mantra have unveiled an interactive three-sided record listening experience, to showcase their most recent LP “Medium” (October 18th, Finisterian Dead End).

Conceived as an experience of both mind and body, “Medium” is a record centred on the theme of duality. The band took it upon themselves to compose a piece in which both sides can be played simultaneously and controlled by the listener, generating a unique third side.

Opeth - In Cauda Venenum

In all honesty, I was not a big fan of Opeth when they were playing death metal, since I thought other bands were doing a much better job at it, but when they started going soft, circa “Still Life”, I thought they were losing every ounce of credibility. They inadvertently abandoned their extreme style for a more mature, so called progressive style, just a little bit into the millennium and released a bunch of watered down albums that gained them a wider appeal, as they became more and more accessible.
 

Eloy

Hi Frank, I’m glad we’re given the chance to talk about Eloy’s new release. Well, part 2 of “The Vision the Sword and the Pyre” completes the work, you’ve wanted to release for quite a long time. How did the process of this album differ in relation to the first, if at all and how do you feel now that it’s done?
 

Captain Cheesebeard share new single “Deadwood”

Happily emerging many moons ago as a Frank Zappa tribute project, the Brussels-based decet (that’s Ten musicians, and yes, we checked), Captain Cheesebeard, have since developed into a unique fusion ensemble. After years of respectfully interpreting Zappa and his music, bandleader, Johan De Coninck decided that the time had come for the band to explore their own virtuosity and begin writing original compositions.
