Sorcières are able to create an atmosphere with their music already, and the ability to keep one repeating melody throughout a track is not something that you see very often nowadays, and I really enjoy it. I look forward to hearing what more Sorcières are able to bring to life in the future.

Aonia – The Seven

I will definitely be taking another opportunity to see them live in the future, and I would suggest that if symphonic metal is your kind of thing, that you should do the same.

Aexylium – Tales From This Land

This debut from Aexylium sounds absolutely fantastic. It is a really, really good first album for the band, and I hope to hear more from them in the future. The album is happy, jiggy and definitely worthy of the title of folk metal. I expect big things from this Italian band in the future, and you should definitely go and show them your support!
