Exploration: Alas – Absolute Purity (2001)

When I started to get seriously into metal and was just haphazardly trying everything out some of the first stuff my unrefined palette fell on was symphonic metal. Bands like Nightwish, Epica, Delain, After Forever, helped loosen my presupposed ideas... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Judicator – Sleepy Plessow (2013)

While I could go on and on about how criminally overlooked Judicator is, I too am guilty of overlooking their first two albums. See, I got hip to them in 2015 with their massively beautiful album At the Expense of Humanity,... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Syrus – Tales of War (2017)

There's a long and constantly growing list of metal bands from the 80's (and 90's, to some extent) dusting off their denim jackets and throwing themselves back in to the mix. It's hard to blame them, after all, nostalgia is... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Sorcier des Glaces – The Puressence of Primitive Forests (2011)

Sorcier des Glaces is a name I always see floating around on heralded words. Sorcier des Glaces, or SDG for you cool kids (and how their logo looks now) always have albums for sale in pretty much every single metal distro... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Frostmoon – Tordenkrig (1999)

Frostmoon existed for all of an EP release and a split release, all from between 1998 and 1999, culminating with a 1999 compilation of all their releases and a few unreleased tracks that were promised to be on the then... Continue Reading →
