Review: “In Disbelief” by Hilltops Are For Dreamers

From humble beginnings in London in 2018, Greek duo Vasilis Papageorgakopoulos (Guitars, Bass, Keys, Programming) and Dionysus Maratos (Programming) rose to prominence at the spine of Hilltops Are For Dreamers with two well received EPs in 2020’s self titled which saw them joined by XYears vocalist Mike Buttigieg before July of the same year saw

Documentary: “Epigone” episode #8 with Wilderun!

Quite how long Boston Progressive Metallers Wilderun will let their documentary series about the making of “Epigone” go remains to be seen but at episode #8 we’ve reached our second individual song commentary in “Distraction I” with Maike Münstermann behind the camera. That follows one for “Passenger“ so perhaps were going to receive a gift

Documentary: “Epigone” episode #7 with Wilderun!

The trail of crumbs that Hansel and Gretel left to mark their way home is a decent metaphor for what Boston Progressive Metallers Wilderun have created with the series that documents the making of their latest offering “Epigone”, an album which appeared via Century Media in January. Since then the Maike Münstermann filmed series has

Documentary: “Epigone” episode #6 with Wilderun!

We’ve run out of superlatives to describe just how good “Epigone” from Boston Progressive Metallers Wilderun is, so let’s just say that if it’s predecessor “Veil Of Imagination” set the standard then the sequel continues that rich vein but in a different way.

Well in “Epigone” Boston Progressive Metallers Wilderun have managed to achieve the seemingly impossible by taking a different route to remain. The fourth (and final?) episode of their making of featurette for the Century Media released record

Review: “Halo” by Amorphis

Thirty one years after their inception and in November thirty years after their debut album “The Karelian Isthmus”, the return of Finnish Progressive Metallers Amorphis with “Halo“, the third and final chapter in a trilogy of albums behind 2015’s “Under The Red Cloud” and 2018’s “Queen Of Time” couldn’t be more timely. A staggering fourteenth

Documentary: “Epigone” episode #3 with Wilderun!

Mixed and Mastered by Jens Bogren (Sepultura, At The Gates, Architects) the follow up to the critically acclaimed “Veil Of Imagination” from Boston’s Wilderun continues to receive a lot of attention and rightly so. “Epigone” may not be a direct sequel in the tradition sense but it is an incredible record in its own right, something

Review: “Vessels Of Grief” by The Final Sleep

It’s been five years since the first confession of The Final Sleep, a band that features founding members of Arsis, Burning Human and Withstand within their ranks and that critically acclaimed debut is one that remains as relevant and stunning today as it did in 2017. Drawing in influences from bands such as Opeth, Amorphis
