Like a charging bear Scythia have been playing progressive power metal with a twist of folklore since 2008. Scythia has coined their own sound while drawing influences from different genres such as celtic/gypsy folk music, power metal, death metal and progressive rock. Scythia’s albums and performances feature rich, poetic storytelling and grand tales that vividly captures the imagination of their listeners. Because of this, they have taken the independent scene by storm as they gather more and more fans both domestically and internationally. Scythia acquired its name from vocalist/guitarist Dave Khan’s infatuation with ancient Slavic imagery and melodies inspired from Balkan music. The name is fitting for a grandiose sound as Scythia is also an ancient empire spanning from the Caucasus through Russia, and even into eastern Scandinavia.

Scythia delivered their first album “Of War” in 2010 where the band’s distinctive sound was forged, which carried on to their next release “Of Exile” in 2011. These albums featured sound effects, narration and classical instrumentation to help drive home their story through the medium of concept albums. Touring and press associated with these albums garnered recognition for the band as they were nominated for the Best Metal Group/Duo for Canada’s Sirius XM Indies – Independent Music Awards. Other nominees include Bison B.C, Derelict, Devin Townsend Project and Mares Of Thrace. This is a great honor for the band to be included as nominees for these awards since they represents the Canadian independent music scene.

In February 2014, Scythia had its sights set on new and larger horizons. They released their 3rd full length album “Of Conquest”, which was engineered/produced by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Halcyon Way, Svarsot) at LSD Studios in Lubeck, Germany. Co-produced by Shaun Thingvold (Strapping Young Lad, Lamb of God, Fear Factory), Mixed by Nino Laurenne (Ensiferum, Wintersun, Kiuas, Firewind) at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland, and Mastered by Svante Forsback (Rammstein, Firewind, Korpiklaani,Apocalyptica) at Chartmakers in Helsinki, Finland. “Of Conquest” let to an overwhlemingly popular response and saw the band co-headline a major festival in Brazil and other festivals in the southeast USA in 2015.

“Of Conquest” sonically paved the way for their 4th full-length release “Lineage”, which was recorded using the same production team. 2016 sees Scythia getting ready for more touring in Canada and the US, and setting sail across the seas to international venues.




After 15 years playing with Assassin, guitarist Michael Hoffmann decided to leave the band.
His decision to leave became apparent already during the recordings and production of the new album „Combat Cathedral“, because he didn’t take part of it much.

We gave him the time to think about it and after all he took this decision because of personal reasons in case of the new style Assassin was going with „Combat Cathedral“.

He will stay musically active for sure and we wish the best success for him and his future projects.
You can see Assassin live from September on with a substitute on guitar that is well known to the scene.
So watch out for the next Assassin news to come!

3. Edge of Black Waters
4. Colored Spoes of Yuggoth
5. Draconian Discipline
6. The Poison of Sleep
7. Temple of Seventh Death
8. A Gift of Renewal

American progressive black metal band realesed the album. This album is a very good progressive black metal album, and the progressive metal combined with black metal, has always been a combination that is very interesting for listening.

On this album it can be heard, that is very melodic, and the melodies are very well fitted, with black metal sound. The elements of atmospheric music and rock in some moments, made the album, special and interesting.

Vocals are great, with the vibe of death metal vocal.Tehnical compliace is brought to ideal, acoustic is to loud and it shouldn’t be, but it’s solid and production is awesome. This album will take you to a ride of ocultism, darkness,chaos, apocylpse.

Helleborus has progressive metal sound, that is precise, and with black metal sound, that has a true raw black metal essence in it, makes this band very unigue and specific. This band is a perfect example of progressive black metal, with music that is pure and evil as hell.

In additional news, PSYCHOSTICK are returning for their second UK tour and they’re bringing their friends, the legendary Green Jellÿ for the PsychoJellÿ Tour’. The tour will be from September 13th to October 1st to satisfy the hunger and bring more of ‘Beer’, ‘Obey The Beard’, ‘Dogs Like Socks’, ‘Bruce Campbell’, ‘Do Want A Taco?’ among many other tracks to be performed live for the fans!

Green Jellÿ (pronounced “green jello”) started more than 30 years ago and has had over 400 band member changes, plus has sold over 2 million records to keep fans still knocking heads!

The band has had hundreds of members during its lifetime, with Bill Manspeaker the only consistent member throughout. The lineup during their most popular album release, ‘Cereal Killer’ is typically referenced as it contained several musicians who went on to appear in other major 1990s bands, such as Danny Carey and Maynard James Keenan of Tool. Green Jellÿ is best known for ‘The Three Little Pigs’, a #1 selling single on Billboard with a Grammy nominated music video.

Formed in 1981 in Kenmore, NY, by founding member Bill Manspeaker, the band was originally named Green Jellö, but changed the name due to legal pressure from the owners of the Jell-O trademark, Kraft Foods, who claimed that it was an infringement of their trademark. Throughout the early 80’s, Green Jellÿ performed throughout New York, opening for bands like the Ramones and New York Dolls. Their reputation for over-the-top live performances and food-hurling audiences got them banned from most local venues. A full bio can be found here.

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist  Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, and a style of music they’ve coined as ‘humorcore’. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Now residing in Chicago, IL, the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory Psychostick have released four full-length albums–‘We Couldn’t Think of a Title’ (2006), ‘Sandwich’ (2009), ‘Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D’ (2011) and ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ (2014)—and two EPs—their holiday album, ‘The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride’ (2007), and ‘The Digital Appetizer’. With their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic) their most recent offering, the crowd-funded ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ includes the beard anthem ‘Obey the Beard’ and popular ‘Dogs Like Socks’, ‘Quack Kills’, ‘So. Heavy.’, ‘Blue Screen’, and a tribute to the 21st century’s most beloved action super hero, ‘Bruce Campbell’. Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!

 Zephyra- As The World CollapsesZephyra, As The World Collapses

Swedish melodic death metal band is going to realese a album. This album is a melodic death metal apocylpse with, the influence of industiral metal to it.

On this album it can be heard that the melodic sound on the album is very well harmonized, aslo integrated phenomenally with industiral metal sound, making this album a melodic metal masterpiace.

The solos on the album are awesome, very melodic and fast. The vocal on the album is very unigue, as a unclean vocal, and also as the clean vocal, it is perfectly inegrated with the hole album, and the songs, giving something special,unigue,perfect and magical to this album. Tehnical compliance is brought to ideal, acoustic is great, production is awesome. This album will take you to a jorney of anger,darkness, rage, chaos, disapointment.

Zephyra is the band that has something different in their sound and music, it’s basically classical melodic death metal, but they have a very specific sound and vocals, that makes them very different from the other melodic death metal bands. This band is a wicked melodic metal band, with awesome melodic death metal music to it.
