What?

Is it a plane, a comet, a….

Or is it black metal? Or Death metal? Or metal? Or is in fact classic music? I don’t really know, but it’s amazing, and it’s from down under… And, it’s ”Ne Obliviscaris!”

Annonser

Yeah man, have been in the shadows these last couple of weeks… What can I say… Been kind of busy, coming down with a cold, and feeling a bit anti-social. But that’s me and my issues….

Well, it’s like this. Sometimes I drive my self into darkness and then I’m not able to communicate with the outside world. It’s hard enough to keep me on the right side… So sometimes I dive, sometimes I surface. Right now, I’m in the middle. It can go either way. It may be that I’m going to show you happy metal, or, it will be more and more dark metal. And since autumn is calling, with it dark days…. Well, let’s say that I’m working on it…

Meanwhile, I would like to present to you, some new music I’ve discovered these last couple of weeks. Hope u like it!

I’ll start with a Swedish band I think needs more attention! The band is Spazanza and they’re from Karlstad in Sweden. This is the song “Dead inside”, taken from their last album “Death is certain, Life is not”

Then I would like to present to you a band from Australia, which kind of remind me of the almighty “Opeth”, but in a kind of black metal, swedish folk-song way… It kind of talks to me right now… My state of mind you know….

And whilst I’m on the subject… this is something that really keeps me going right now…. Dying Fetus! That’s a fucking brutal name for a band, and with this song…”Fuck the baby, let it die!” Welll, you be the judge! But I love it!

But, when I look at this last video, I can’t help  to think, and now it’s time for some happy metal!, and that the it might be a bit too technical… So this is how you play the fucking drums!! (Be aware, it’s 1h 20 min vid) I mean, just look at fucking Mickey Dee…..

Don’t you just have to love ‘em?!?!

And now time for some happy-metal! AndOK, this is really light weight, but sometimes you need this as well… A new Swedish band, called Eclipse and their single “Blod and screem”

And as a beautiful finish… we top it off with some fine Swedish viking metal! Amon Amarth! Damn, This could actually be the best song of the new millennium “Twilight Of The Thunder God”! Awsome!

Since I don’t believe in a god, I don’t know who to thank, but thank… anyone… and all the people who creates good music that hopefully will keep me on the right path…

Rock on forever! And until next time…

Kind of opposite

Sitting in my kitchen, having a musical-moment! And I’m just realizing that my big Swedish idol Thåström has actually gone the opposite way, music wise.

BTW, did I mention that Thåström’s my GOD?

Hey everybody!
Stay tuned for my first official review of a real heavy metal album!

First of all, as you all have noticed, I’m no writer, but I love to discover new music and thanx to Twitter, I had the fortune to find this melodic death metal band from Australia called BeserkerfoX! New World MurderAnd, after we got acquainted,  they asked me if I would like to review their new EP – New World Murder!

So what’s a poor boy from Sweden to do? Only one thing to actually, and since I’m a cheap bastard that realized I would get a EP for free… 😉 , I humbly accepted, of course! And I’m glad I did! So here it goes:

We’ve already got the ”New wave of British heavy metal” and ”The new wave of Swedish death metal”. Now, I think it’s time to start to talk about ”The wave of Australian death metal”!

When I listen to the EP I get a lot of vibes, but the one that really comes to mind is early Dark Tranquillity! And Iron Maiden. The guitarr harmonies, and

European-style-heavy-metal!

the constant changing of pace of the song, like progressive. As an hard-core Iron Maiden fan, I can’t help but loving this! By this, I don’t mean that they sound old, quite the opposite actually. It’s melodic, hard and fresh! Although, it’s not an album that sticks like glue after listening to it once, no, you have to sit down and really

listen to it first, otherwise you won’t get it! And you have to understand it to like it. It’s like listening to Queensrÿche – a thinking mans metal! (Hey, it’s easier for me, I got the lyrics! 🙂 ) But, when you getit… you will have to love it!

As I said before, I get strong Dark Tranquillity vibes of this, which make me think that I wouldn’t be the only one in Europe to like this! Unlike, for example Parkway Drive, this is really European-like metal (and with European-like, I mean Gothenburg!). So all you guys out there, loving Dark Tranquillity, (early) In Flames, At the gates and so on, give these guys a chance! Think you will like it!

So, all and all… I give this EP seven (7) pepsRock out of ten (10). Had it been an entire album with the same quality, I would give it an eight, but now, it’s only four songs, and I WANT MORE!

Do you want to here them play? Well, do you have Spotify? You can find them here: http://open.spotify.com/artist/2HPSv6X9EaqONl3dydDgrM

And also on youtube! And you can also download this song for free on http://www.berserkerfox.net

And also, why not take the chance to discover them the same way I did, through Twitter!? Do you twitter? Follow BerserkerfoX here: @BerserkerfoX

Yup, I fucking like it! 😀
