CD review HEXVESSEL ‘Kindred’

Hexvessel sketches pictures with their songs. Bigger soundscapes like in 'Phaedra' are musical storytelling that demands focus an attention from the listener. 'Kindred' isn't an album that supplies easy-listening music. It's an enormous depth and songwriting skills that demand focus and attention. If you want to take a break from reality, it's 'Kindred' and earphones that allows you to go on a trip through musical magic forest with songs being the trees and notes being the leaves.

CD review HEILUNG ‘Futha’

(*/10) Heilung is a band that's special. The German/Danish trio doesn't play Metal nor they are into Rock. Still Heilung found and finds many fans in the Metal scene and it's more than the unusual stage performance only, that creates an interest.

CD review ÁRSTÍÐIR ‘Nivalis’

(8/10) Árstíðir is a rather unconventional band when it comes to Season Of Mist’s portfolio.
