I absolutely love Gloryhammer, and music like this never fails to bring my joy on a sad day. Gloryhammer have stuck to their core style, harking back to elements and melodies of previous tracks, as well as bringing a new and exciting installment to their sage to save the Kingdom of Fife and the mighty City of Dundee.
Amon Amarth have successfully managed to try something new whilst still holding true to their roots and previous records. They have got the right balance between maintaining their sound while keeping it fresh, and that, in my opinion, is not always an easy thing to do, particularly for a band such as Amon Amarth who have such a distinctive sound and image.
Once again, Månegarm have produced another fantastic album. It’s new and fresh while still being true to their signature style. I hope that I am able to catch them live again very soon, as I am sure a lot more UK fans are!
Part 2 of my Wacken Winter Nights III review
I do appreciate the skill and thought that has gone into the music, and that there will be a lot of people who will really enjoy this. I really do look forward to seeing Ancient Bards live at Power Metal Quest Fest.
Band: WolfhordeAlbum: Hounds of PerditionRelease Date: 11th January 2018 Wolfhorde are a band that have been around for a while, but until I saw news
I am definitely going to try and catch them at Wacken Winter Nights, as from what I can hear the live performance is likely to evoke more feeling, and of course, you can’t have a jig pit while sitting on a bus listening to this album on the way to work…
This will be my first outing to Wacken Winter Nights, and I am really looking forward to it. There are so many amazing bands on the lineup and so many great things to see and do when there are no bands playing. Is it possible for a festival to be too good???
There was such a hype on social media before this debut was released the for me it didn’t quite hit impossibly high standard. However, it is a damn good album!
A special double feature review of my experiences at the Heilung performance on 9th November 2018 at the Islington Assembly Hall in London, and of Wardruna’s performance at the Albert Hall in Manchester on 21st November 2018.
Get yourself a ticket for Power Metal Quest Fest, get yourself a t-shirt, and support all the amazing bands on the lineup who rely on our support to keep going!

My Ronnie James Dio stage picks for Bloodstock 2018!
The folk and power metal scene in the UK is getting bigger every year, and I am fortunate enough to know and in some cases be friends with the members of several of these bands.
If you want to have a folk metal workout, stick this album on and dance around for 45 minutes, it’s the perfect folk metal party in an album!
I see a lot of potential in the growth of Atorc in becoming one of the foremost folk metal bands in the UK. I’m excited to hear what they have to offer in the future.
