WINTERSUN – Reveal Album Title of Third studio album!

Today, the Finnish kings of epic melodic death, WINTERSUN, unveil the title of their third full length album coming in 2017 via Nuclear Blast:


“That’s right folks, we’ll leave you pondering a bit what this name means”, teases front man Jari Mäenpää. “Next week we’ll release the album tracklist and everything will become very clear to you! Promise!”

Last week, the Finnish mastermind unveiled the very first information about the band’s upcoming studio album – read the full text here:

It’s 2017 folks, and it’s going to be a great year! Time for some big WINTERSUN news? Yes, it is!
When we said that “IT IS DONE”, we did not mean »Time II«, but we meant a NEW ALBUM for sure! »Time II« won’t be the next WINTERSUN album, because of reasons you already know from past updates and interviews.

So what is IT? IT is a NEW ALBUM and it is 100% done! And no, that’s not the name of the album. This album will be something new and different, but equally great or perhaps even better in some ways. Over 53 minutes of solid WINTERSUN material (with no intro tracks) and with a killer concept!

This album will be THE 3rd FULL LENGTH WINTERSUN album. We will release the name of it soon and other details such as the track list etc. We’re gonna start putting the pieces of the puzzle together for you guys, how it’s going to be released and what will happen… It will be a whole new experience! It will all make sense to you very soon!

And this album is not the only thing we’ve done, not by a long shot! In fact your minds will be blown soon! That is a guarantee. So click the notifications ON in our WINTERSUN page, if you don’t want to miss out on the new album! (Because of Facebook algorithm reach limit). THANKS GUYS!

KEROSCENE – Like The First Time (Single Review)

KEROSCENE – Like The First Time (Single Review) by Carina Lawrence 


London quartet Keroscene have created an interesting sound for themselves, not putting themselves in a box. They are free to explore and play with the genres. They have gained attention from Q Magazine and been placed in noteworthy Spotify playlists, highlighting them as a new and upcoming band to watch.
The band recorded two singles with Matt Peel (Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses). The first ambient single, “I Can’t Do A Thing” showcases their vast influences, drawing from a more post-punk vibe.
And now with a year new, brings a new single titled “Like The First Time” which has dark undertones with a slight melancholic sound, with lyrics such as “like the first time you killed me” and “forever entombed” adding to this sombre side. It features twangy indie guitars tinged in a dark ambience, aided by the electronics creating more atmosphere and depth. As it progresses more elements creep in with a crescendo, making quite a powerful impact. This isn’t really heavy music, but through its bleak and broody sound it intrigues and demonstrates the band have a lot to convey. The song is thought provoking through its lyrical content, as its about being alone, not loneliness, but more about we are on our own when we come into the world and when we exit and about the importance of understanding life to lead to content and fulfilment. So the band manage to successfully take us on an interesting and philosophical journey, both musically and lyrically. This is an impressive feat for a new band, and gives you even more reason to check them out.

KATAKLYSM – announce special European tour in autumn 2017!

Canadian hyperblasters, KATAKLYSM, will celebrate their 25th band anniversary in 2017. In support of this noticeable jubilee, the band will play special shows and bring their classic records »Shadows & Dust« and »Serenity In Fire« on European stages in their entirety.

The band commented:

“It’s hard to think that 25 years have already arrived, feels like yesterday when we were in high school being teen rebels and we started a band called KATAKLYSM, hard to believe that through everything this band has been through, we are still standing tall, but when you really think hard a few words can summon it all: Perseverance, strength, belief and honesty, those were and are the key ingredients for KATAKLYSM success and of course killer anthems who have stood the test of time!

We have taken this moment to stop and reflect and thought we should celebrate this event, as it doesn’t happen often to bands, to still be meaningful to the world and achieve 25 years of career, with this we also noticed that one of our breakthrough albums »Shadows & Dust« will turn 15 years old in 2017, so what better way to send a big thank you back to our fans by revisiting this classic record and its follow up »Serenity In Fire«, two landmarks in KATAKLYSM’s on going blistering career?

We decided to make a special event with select dates and bring this idea to life with a tour called »A Moment In Time: Shadows & Dust vs. Serenity In Fire« where KATAKLYSM will play both albums in their entirety, with a brand new stage show reflecting those two records, for this special occasion KATAKLYSM has invited their old friends in GRAVEWORM from Italy to open up the festivities, who themselves supported KATAKLYSM in Europe and in the US during the »Shadows & Dust« and »Serenity In Fire« campaign era, we are beyond excited for this event, it will be a one time thing for the cities we play it, so don’t miss it, we will not bring it back, so make sure you come out and party with us celebrating our 25th anniversary!”
