REVIEW: Ensiferum – ‘Thalassic’ by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy
Ensiferum are pioneers in melodic folk metal and their new eighth album ‘Thalassic’ which is released July 10th 2020 via Metal Blade Records asserts this yet again. The album’s title translates from ancient Greek as “of or relating to seas” and this theme is strong throughout and the mythology touched upon in the album helps take the bands sound to another level being their most forceful offering yet.
Three years after releasing their critically acclaimed record Poison The Parish, multi-platinum selling rock band SEETHER announces their highly anticipated return with the new album, Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum out August 28th, 2020 via Spinefarm Records in the UK. Translating to “If You Want Peace, Prepare For War,” the album features 13 new tracks, a primal mix of euphoria and misery, undoubtedly some of the strongest material of SEETHER’s illustrious career, including the beautifully tormented first single “Dangerous” released today alongside an animated music video created by noted Turkish director Mertcan Mertbilek (Santana, Ray Charles, Ravi Shankar, Elvis Costello).
“Obsidian”, the new album from PARADISE LOST, will be released on 15th May.
But, before writing another story of success, PARADISE LOST dive deeper into ‘Fall From Grace’, the first single released from “Obsidian”.

Sweden’s finest modern metal heroes AMARANTHE have entered the studio in Denmark to start working on the recording of their new album – just one hour before the Danish borders were closed!
The band, now in quarantine, states: “By now, some of you know that we will start the recording of our new album today, Monday 16th March. It is an odd feeling to continue operations while large parts of the world are on lockdown, and the music industry is suffering greater than most other businesses – but we find it extremely important to soldier on, as we refuse to be beaten by this disease. It also means that we are effectively isolating ourselves, as everyone should as much as possible. We were set to travel to the studio on Sunday 15th, but as the Danish government decided to close their border with only a few hours notice, we had to make a very sudden and daring escape from Sweden into Denmark, ending up at an utterly deserted Copenhagen train station about one hour before the lockdown. We were quite literally the only ones making our way INTO the country, while everyone else was trying to get OUT. As you can no doubt imagine, people think that we are mad. Many of you are now in voluntary or involuntary isolation, and we will try our best to entertain you with regular updates from the studio! The album, already in this early phase, is something we feel incredibly strongly about, and we think you will no doubt know what we mean when you get to hear it later this year. Stay safe, wash your hands, keep your distance from the elderly and the sick – spread the love, not the virus!”
