Rhapsody Of Fire - The Frozen Tears Of Angels (Nuclear Blast/Riot)

'Rhapsody Of Fire are finally back!' exclaims the official website. Was it worth the wait? Well, actually, yeah - if you like that sort of thing.
Release Date: 
29 Apr 2010 (All day)

The next thing the website says is, 'Be Ready To Discover The Ancient Secret Trapped Between The Frozen Lands Of The Known World!', which clearly makes no sense at all.

Watain's next plague with more Lawless Darkness details revealed

Lawless Darkness, the long-anticipated fourth full-length from Swedish black metal squadron Watain, shall ravage the planet on June 7, 2010 courtesy of Season Of Mist.

The band returned to Necromorbus Studio (Deathspell Omega, Funeral Mist, Ondskapt, Nominon, Unanimated) in Alvik, Sweden to record the ten-track, hour-plus long masterwork, which f

Barn Burner - Bangers (Metal Blade/Riot)

Mixing up genres and eras like it's going out of fashion, Barn Burner's debut manages to create a sound that's retro but all their own.

On the first spin, I thought “this is retro, guitar-worshipping rock and roll, pure and simple”.

Signing times:

Decapitated, Misery Index, Origin, Psycroptic @ Black Betty’s (Perth), 6 April 2010

The self-proclaimed “most brutal tour of the year” kicks some serious arse.

Black Betty’s is not a venue that has been used much for metal gigs, but I have no idea why not - it’s going to become one of my favourite Perth spots.
