For one reason or another (or perhaps for no reason at all), I have missed out completely on music for a while. No good. Until this weekend I hadn’t heard Nightwish’ new ”The Crow, the Owl and the Dove” single with the previously unreleased ”The Heart Asks Pleasure First” b-track Läs mer
Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish today revealed the title and concept of their upcoming seventh album Imaginarium. As the super fan I am, I am ofcourse incredibly psyched, and I’ve collected all information I’ve gathered on the subject. Imaginarium is the seventh studio album by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, Läs mer
I have troubles not being too harsh when discussing Avantasia’s Angel of Babylon. As it was, Tobias Sammet decided that the material he had gathered for the latest Avantasia album was too much, and he split it into two CDs released simultaneously – The Wicked Symphony and Angel of Babylon. Läs mer
I have loved the strange power metal project Avantasia since I first heard The Metal Opera Part II in 2007, and they were in fact the band that made me fall in love with concept albums (alongside Kamelot and their Epica / The Black Halo albums). I loved both two Läs mer
Though an incredible jump from their 2008 debut River of Tuoni, The Clouds of Northland Thunder is still somewhat lost in the early days of the symphonic power metal act that is Amberian Dawn. Amberian Dawn makes good, unique power metal with symphonic influences in a genre that nowadays is Läs mer

Polaris was a refreshing new album, stepping on new grounds of Läs mer
This review was first published on the official Amberian Dawn forum on October 21, 2010. So I just downloaded the new Amberian Dawn album End of Eden (yes, I have preordered it, but it hasn’t come yet so I hope the band won’t mind me not waiting any longer), and Läs mer
Norwegian-American progressive power metal act Kamelot’s 2010 album Poetry for the Poisoned is unlike anything they have ever released, and to some extent unlike anything anyone has ever released. It is an interesting joyride of traditional heavy metal hatered, emotions beyond music and and an experience hard to match nor describe, but Läs mer
Finnish symphonic power metal act Amberian Dawn has now officially announced their third album ”End of Eden” to be released this October. It is to be heavier than their previous albums ”River of Tuoni” (2008) and ”The Clouds of Northland Thunder” (2009).
