Swedish/Danish modern metal outfit Amaranthe has signed with Nuclear Blast. To break up the recording sessions for their upcoming, yet-untitled 2020 studio album, Amaranthep kick off their 8-date »Helix Nordic Tour 2019« next week.
-The new album is called ”Icebreaker” and we really want to break the ice and reach out to a wide metal audience, as well as a big commercial audience.
It’s time for the new chart and as always you heavy metal fans out there are the...
I have to say two. John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) and Keith Moon (The Who). The reason why is that I like Bonham for his technique and Moon for his absolute madness on the stage.
What deeds and words will people remember once we are gone, what deeds and words will forever echo after it is all over? What do you want it to be?

“Metal Galaxy” will be released on October 11th and features Joakim Brodén of Sabaton, Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy, guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage from Polyphia, Thai-rapper F.HERO and B’z guitarist Tak Matsumoto.

Sabaton chooses to play songs from “Carolus Rex” in Swedish, even though the audience are from at least 30 different nationalities. It’s just magic to hear the crowd sing along with the band in swedish.
With their new album “The Great War”, Swedish heavy metal heroes Sabaton have reached fantastic chart results all over the world, including the #1 top position in Germany & Switzerland, as well as their home country Sweden. Recently, the band proudly announced their European tour dates for “The Great Tour”, with fellow Swedes Amaranthe and Finnish cello rockers Apocalyptica supporting.
The title track “Victorious” for example is brilliant and when I sum up 2019 it will definitely be there listed along with Avantasias “Moonglow” and Pulgasaris “Alive Again” and probably some more songs when I make a chart over the best songs this year.
“Silence” was supposed to be on our last album, says guitarist and songwriter Marcus Hanser, adding that it may be the song that best represents their sound.
Thank you German fans for being so damn loyal all these years”, comments the band
But sometimes my mind just stops at some phrase – like getting stuck and letting your head wander off after hearing a line in a song, like in Beast In Black’s ”Blind and Frozen”, where we have the line ”…as I read those letters you wrote me” – what letters, what did they say? I will just never know.
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.
