REVIEW: Forever Still – Tied Down (Musicalypse Archive)

Who are FOREVER STILL, you may be asking yourselves. This Danish duo came onto our radar after we were poking around to find out...

REVIEW: Sonata Arctica – The Ninth Hour (Musicalypse Archive)

When mentioned to a crowd, SONATA ARCTICA is liable to elicit a variety of reactions, but it's hard to deny that they are an...

REVIEW: John Wesley – a way you’ll never be (Musicalypse Archive)

John Wesley is known to most prog fans as a sideman, having worked as MARILLION's guitar tech, Fish's songwriting partner and guitarist, and most...

REVIEW: Opeth – Sorceress (Musicalypse Archive)

OPETH's recent releases have been rather polarizing in the metal community. I had no problem at all with the stylistic change on "Heritage" (2011),...

REVIEW: Epica – The Holographic Principle (Musicalypse Archive)

There can be no denying that EPICA has a huge fanbase, nor that they deserve it. With their bombastic sound, strong vocalists, talented instrumentalists,...

REVIEW: Blind Channel – Revolutions (Musicalypse Archive)

BLIND CHANNEL, in the span of a few months, has quickly become one of my favorite live acts. How painful is it then that...

REVIEW: Insomnium – Winter’s Gate (Musicalypse Archive)

These days, INSOMNIUM is one of those bands that hardly needs to be introduced to metal audiences. Ever since their debut in 2002, this...

REVIEW: Kansas – The Prelude Implicit (Musicalypse Archive)

KANSAS has never been a massive name in Finland, and I’ve only heard ”Carry On Wayward Son” on the radio once or twice. However,...

Few things in the world these days get me more excited than a new release by Devin Townsend, who, in the span of about...

REVIEW: Psychework – The Dragon’s Year (Musicalypse Archive)

REVIEW: Witherscape – The Northern Sanctuary (Musicalypse Archive)

Progressive death metal duo WITHERSCAPE’s debut album, "The Inheritance" (2013), was my introduction to the wonderful world of the multi-talented Dan Swanö, whose projects...

REVIEW: Fates Warning – Theories of Flight (Musicalypse Archive)

Progressive metal pioneers FATES WARNING started enriching my record collection around the time their previous album, "Darkness in a Different Light" (2013), came out....

REVIEW: Ayreon – The Theater Equation (Musicalypse Archive)

It is time! Ever since I made the trip to Rotterdam with a friend back in September 2015 to see The Theater Equation, I've...

REVIEW: Machinae Supremacy – Phantom Shadow + concept teaser (Musicalypse Archive)

It's May 2016, which means MACHINAE SUPREMACY's "Phantom Shadow" came almost 2 years ago, so you may be wondering why I am writing a...

REVIEW: Whispered – Metsutan: Songs of the Void (Musicalypse Archive)

WHISPERED first caught my attention after the release of their debut album, "Thousand Swords," in 2010. "Thousand Swords" presented a mature band – WHISPERED...

REVIEW: Katatonia – The Fall of Hearts (Musicalypse Archive)

Some 4 years have passed since the release of KATATONIA’s last full-length album, "Dead End Kings" (2012). The band has mainly remained in people’s...

REVIEW: Amon Amarth – Jomsviking (Musicalypse Archive)

It has been weirdly hard for me to decide if I like AMON AMARTH or not. If you had asked me 6 years ago,...

REVIEW: Lacuna Coil – Delirium (Musicalypse Archive)

Oh LACUNA COIL, how I used to love you. I don't remember how I came across these guys back in the day, but I...
