Gig Review: Korpiklaani / Heidevolk – O2 Academy, Oxford (2nd March 2024)

Well, it has been a long time coming, but finally I have the pleasure of writing a review that is not related in any way to M2TM. This time I find myself in a completely different venue within the great city of Oxford, the O2 Academy.

This is an interesting one, and not new so apologies for those who've heard it since it came out last year. "Ennen" is a Finnish version of "Got The Time", probably best known in metal circles as coming from Anthrax's Persistence of Time album.

2017 Crew Review – Eduinaluca, Writer/Reviewer

Thus I reach my 18th and last article of the year, my personal review of 2017. Best New Album: Verity by Nokturnal Mortum, hands down. I've got nothing much to add to what I've previously said but I think that this album and everything that surrounds it from my personal point of view had a … Continue reading 2017 Crew Review – Eduinaluca, Writer/Reviewer

Review: Korpiklaani – Live at Masters of Rock DVD

Earlier this month, Korpiklaani released its first live DVD ever filmed at the Masters of Rock Festival in Czech Republic. As they're a regular attendee, there is not just one but two concerts which were shot in two different years. This also means two albums, two atmospheres and one super band who, once again, did … Continue reading Review: Korpiklaani – Live at Masters of Rock DVD
