"Klechdy" album by THY WORSHIPER is a double album

THY WORSHIPER next record is a double album planned to be released on May 25th by Arachnophobia Records. The music in "Klechdy" (Tales) album appears mature, gloomy and heavy. It may be a contender for the oddest album of the year.
"Darkness and light, birth and death. Ethnic epos enclosed in the cyclical Sun marching. Explore the secrets concealed in 12 songs overfilled by sadness, aggression and spirit, which moves you in to places accessible hitherto for Guardians, Shamans, Witches and possessed. Thy Worshiper will surprise for the fourth time and will hit as never before by a story concealed in the music lasting an hour and a half"

Good evening, folks,

This message to keep you informed on my current work on this website...

One month ago, I started the transition from the platform to here with the re-building of bandpages onto this site. That work has been interefered with the google transition for its own picture services a week ago and that last planned a backup but sadly, failed for Sword Chant and then, pictures became unavailable here.
Thus, I had to give-up the work on my transition, fixing that issue here. So, I moved and added all pictures I have (bands logos, artworks, etc) to the new google space for the pictures keep to show and of course, most unavailable pictures due to that google mess are back now.
Regarding bandpages, left to write again bio for folk metal bands from H to W. The other bandpages are already available under the new design.
Besides, I'll do my best to keep you updated with music news.

Slayer of Gods, the new BRYMIR album

BRYMIR will release their next album "Slayer of Gods" to the following dates and places :
- 25.05.2016: Japan
- 03.06.2016: Finland + Worldwide

The band said :
"It is full of compact, hard-hitting and angry, yet also epic and overflowing material. You can easily hear how we used the frustration we felt at the arduous years-long process of making this album as an inspiration; it is definitely the darkest we've ever been. But at the same time the epic feel, orchestrations and melodic lines are at their biggest and catchiest as well!"

...when transition is everywhere...

Yesterday, google removed pictures from here despite its picture service is supposed to close in May and because they focus on another service. Google made a backup of the pictures but most links are broken here in blogger that means I'll have to insert them all again (from 2007 to 2016) ...
As you know, I am currently working on the re-building of bandpages ... and that issue makes things slower again...  I have also noticed some issues between its new service and blogger, maybe due to their transition.
Sorry for the disturbance out of my will...

NORRSKÖLD tells the new records

Once again, I interviewed Henrik from NORRSKÖLD who recently released a double single entitled "Shores Forsaken". The band is also currently working on their second album so, let’s speak about these new records!
01. Hi again, Henrik! How are you since the last time ?  Cheers mate! Well, the last year has been really intense for all of us in the band! We’ve had some line-up changes, and we’ve now established ourselves as true live act with permanent members. Countless of hours have been spent on rehearsing for live shows, writing new music and of course the recording of our latest release “Shores Forsaken”. Although the agenda usually is really demanding, it´s fantastic to see all the progress we’re making right now!
