Nightwish release music video for first single “Noise”

When Finnish sextet Nightwish announce a new studio album people tend to take notice. They know that something special is brewing.

The band’s new and ninth record “Human. :II: Nature.” will be released on April 10th, 2020, and will be a double album containing 9 tracks on the main CD and one long track, divided into eight chapters on CD 2.

Today, the band releases the first single and video clip for the song “Noise”.

Sons Of Apollo - MMXX

I thought the debut of Sons Of Apollo was a pretty decent prog metal album, from a supergroup that felt a little disjointed, despite all of the people involved in it being awesome players. “MMXX” comes a short time after, with a tour under the band’s collective belt and a Jeff Scott Soto that seems to be working throughout the year on different projects, yet is able to afford the material fairly spirited promotions.
