Sweden Rock Festival has announced the first 31 acts that will play at the 2020 edition. The festival will be held on June 3rd-6th 2020 in Sölvesborg, south of Sweden. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, November 27th at 11.00 CET.
In January 2019 Swedish progressive metal act Evergrey released their eleventh album “The Atlantic”. The band have now announced two concerts in Sweden (Malmö and Stockholm). Tickets go on sale as of today.
However when I read about this I got this absolutely brilliant idea to rank my own chart containing the 666 best albums of all time. And to do this in a fair way I have to listen to all albums that’s been released.
“We all had a metal/hard rock/prog backgrounds, but we felt that our playing style was changing towards a more direct and concise approach,” says Lucio Grilli. “And our way to conceive the songs was influenced as well. In addition to that, we were also looking for something more suitable for Aurelio’s powerful voice, something closer to rock/metal to fully let his voice be heard. It’s more natural for us to talk about MK simply as a melodic metal band than a prog metal one.”
Chaos Magic is centered around a young vocalist from Chile, Caterina Nix. The collaboration with Evergrey’s Tom Englund can be heard on the album’s title track.
“FuryBorn” is a rollercoaster ride that flows through assorted intense styles with uncommon arrangements but with very catchy melodies,” concludes Caterina and rest assured she’s really not exaggerating in the descriptions.
The pre-party on July 18th will feature W.A.S.P., Bullet, Wolf and Mystik. In other news, Gefle Metal Festival has announced their final line-up for the actual festival by presenting 16 up-and-coming acts which will play on the Gas Stage.
The Shadow Empire Tour is currently all over Europe! Kamelot embark on their headlining tour together with their label mates in Visions Of Atlantis and special guest Evergrey. The band is not only busy on the road, but also premiering a brand new lyric video for the track “Vespertine (My Crimson Bride)”.
Gefle Metal Festival will take place on July 19-20th, 2019 at Gasklockorna in Gävle, Sweden.

8/10 Tonight´s gig at Katalin in Uppsala is the first show for the band here ever in...
It’s all good an all, but I can somewhat miss the melodies that are a piece of the bands classic sound. There are a little too many dark riffs and too few powerful melodies here.
