A Decade Of Metal In Review

On the 31 Dec 1999, no planes came crashing out of the sky, nuclear bombs went off or microwave ovens tried to eat anyone. However, times were about to change and in the metal scene change was already well underway. Let us take a stroll through the decade in metal that was.

Many of the 90s big names like Emperor and Pantera prepared to give their last venomous scream dying off in the wake of ever diminishing interest in the metal scene that had plagued the 90s. In the year 2000 a band named “Limp Bizkit” came out with an album called "Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavoured Water" and in a storm nu-metal took over the public perception of heavy music, changing the face of metal irreparably. Although nu-metal had already been pioneered by Korn, bands like Deftones, Disturbed, Mudvayne and Linkin Park all had breakout releases in 2000. More...

Eluveitie Posts New Song Online

Swiss folk metal banmd ELUVEITIE has posted another new song off their highly anticipated new album "Everything Remains (As It Never Was)." The song, "Kingdom Come Undone," can be heard on the band's MySpace page.

Bandleader Chrigel Glanzmann comments, "Here comes the second song off our upcoming album we'd like to present you: 'Kingdom come undone!' One of our harsher tracks, where juggernautish riffs meet with onrushing folk melodies. And exactly the same furious character also lies in the lyrics. The song deals with Vercingetorix, a Gaulish freedom fighter who lived in the time of the Gaulish war. His endeavor was to unite the Gaulish clans. The song presents you a passionate speech, like he probably could have held it in front of assembled Gaulish chieftains.
In that sense: This is V... for Vercingetorix!" More...

Finntroll Reveals New Album Details

FINNTROLL has revealed that their new album, "Nifelvind," will be release in February 2010.

“After tough and hectic weeks in the studio, due to lack of time and summer festivals, we are now really, really pleased with the results. 'Nifelvind' is the most advanced and mature FINNTROLL-album to date, with musical themes ranging from powerful death metal riffs to dark soundtracks, from pounding black metal to groovy 80's pop-music. All this is accompanied by our trademark sound, lots of never-before-heard instruments in the metal-scene, folklore and legends that make it overall the most versatile album we have created so far.”

The tracklisting for "Nifelvind" is as follows:

1. Blodmarsch (intro)
2. Solsagan
3. Den Frusna Munnen
4. Ett Norrskensdåd
