With their first single, “United”, already providing a hint of the musical direction their new album “Looking for You” is headed, Amberian Dawn’s new version of ABBA’s hit track “Lay All Your Love On Me” leaves nothing left to be questioned.

Italian symphonic metal five-piece Temperance have just released their heartfelt new song, “My Demons Can’t Sleep”, off of their upcoming album “Viridian”. The new single is about the demons that everyone harbors inside of them: all of the inner troubles, issues, fears, rage and daily struggles that are often hidden away from the world. “My Demons Can’t Sleep” paints a picture of those feelings in a beautiful way and symbolizes a beacon of hope in the darkness of those frenzied thoughts.
 

Metalite - Biomechanicals

Sometimes I get varying amounts flak from friends for being overly critical or even sometimes even damn mean, when I listen to something, they thing is good, but I don’t necessarily agree with. It obviously has to do with taste and personal preferences, but also the accumulated amount of time I’ve been following the genre and the amount of bands I encounter. Sometimes I do not like their bias, when they’re somehow involved in productions. It’s good to not bullshit people, especially your friends.

Eclipse - Paradigm

Eclipse has for better or worse been going on for twenty years, with some seven releases up to now and their mainman Erik Mårtensson involved in illustrious projects like WET, Ammunition and others… you’d be hard pressed to find a hardest working & a hardest rocking singer, guitarist and producer guy. And like clockwork the Swedes deliver what’s expected from them without fail on “Paradigm”.
 
Familiar, but different enough the album has hit after hit, hitting you until you surrender completely.

BabyMetal - Metal Galaxy

As you might have inferred from reading a previous review on this “band’s” sophomore effort, I am not a fan. I find them a gimmick and a complete waste of Takayoshi Ohmura and the “kami” band’s abilities. Their mix of J-pop with “metallic” elements on the first album sounded forced and bizarre to my wester ears, but it seemed Kawaii / cute to the hordes of Anime watching/Hentai masturbating/cosplaying/thoting undetBrit teens weeaboos and their victims. So be it.
