Dark Passion Play
Review by Rick Damigella
The band who is at the forefront of the current European metal scene has returned after far too long a break since their last release. 

Review by Scott Prinzing
Every once in awhile, I discover a great new band, but recently, I’ve discovered several bands that have been around for a decade or more that leave me mystified as to how I missed them all this time.  

Review by Rick Damigella
True story - over the summer a friend of mine sends me a link from YouTube and says prepare to rock and to laugh. So I click on it and am treated to an absolutely killer symphonic metal riff and an operatic female vocal which is all at once beautiful, powerful and seductively mysterious.

Review by Rick Damigella
Finland’s champions of symphonic progressive metal stormed through Los Angeles this month, putting on a spectacular show in a classic venue. The Wiltern Theater was packed on a warm September Saturday night with one of the most eclectic and friendly crowds I have ever had the pleasure of sharing a concert experience with.
