GOTTHARD new album called “SILVER”

The Swiss Hardrockband Gotthard will release their new studioalbum on 13 januari 2017, which will be called “Silver”. Seems a logic choice, because the band started in 1992 and this means they rock for a quarter of a century. With a stunning list of platinum albums, the band is without a doubt the number one rockband of Switserland.

In this preview, you can hear Marc and Nick talking about the upcoming album and hear a few notes of the new upcoming single. Here you can find the youtube link:

With the new album also comes a new ‘silver’tour with Pretty Maids, which will kick-off in Ravensburg on 9 feb 2017. And don’t forget the ultimate Swiss Rock Package “Gotthard, Krokus and Shakra” in the Rock Monsters Of Switserland.

Rik Priem’s Prime is een Belgisch-Duitse hardrock band die hun debuut album in 2014 uitbrachten. Vorig jaar konden we deze gasten live aan het werk zien in De Kreun, Hamme en in de B52 te Eernegem. Ook voor dit jaar zijn er al enkele concerten gepland, hou dus jullie agenda maar klaar. Diegenen die er niet bij waren hadden zeker ongelijk, maar kregen een herkansing door diverse fotoverslagen.

Een eerste clip ‘Babylon Rising’ kwam reeds vorig jaar uit en heeft intussen vlotjes de kaap van 8500 views gehaald...

Preview: Deathcrusher 2015: Carcass, Napalm Death, Obituary, Voivod en Herod

Deathcrusher Tour

Op 31 oktober strijkt de Deathcrusher-tour neer in Antwerpen. Dit belooft een muzikaal hoogtepunt te worden voor liefhebbers van het hardere werk.

Grindcore legendes Carcass – die afgelopen weekend nog verbaasden met hun explosieve en beukende set in Kortrijk – laten zich vergezellen door niemand minder dan Napalm Death, Obituary, Voivod en Herod.

In tegenstelling tot Carcass is Napalm Death sinds begin jaren ’80 vrijwel onophoudelijk actief gebleven, met een impressionante catalogus aan materiaal tot resultaat. Hun maatschappijkritische en chaotische muziek vormt in combinatie met de stage precense van frontman Barney een werkelijk spektakel.

Al minstens even legendarisch als de eerdere genoemde bands is het Amerikaanse Obituary. Met hun laatst verschenen Inked in Blood heeft de...

11081385_910039765702411_1179481796144207283_n

The Belgian Festival summer is at full speed and we’ve already had some of the biggest fests behind us. Graspop and Werchter… Both are ancient history by now! Upcoming weekend is all about the Antwerp Metal Fest and it’s 3th edition at the Bouckenborgh Park. We couldn’t come up with any reason not to go, so we’ve listed 10 reasons why we think you simply can not miss AMF15!


1 – Budget
If you are on a tight budget, or you already blasted away all of your hard earned money at Graspop, don’t worry. Antwerp Metal Fest offers you two days of great bands at a super location for only 30€/combiticket. Indeed, 30€ for two days of metal! Those are pré-war prices folks!

This is why we think you should visit DOUR 2015

11046548_10155267764740257_455092756527628668_o

It’s no secret… Belgium is known for being the ultimate festival country. Belgian summers are packed with the best line-ups out there. Whatever style of music, you name it, we’ve got it.
There’s the obvious names that get all the attention in the national media such as Werchter, Graspop Metal Meeting, Pukkelpop, Tomorrowland,…

But what about Dour Festival? Dour Festival has been around for nearly 26 years, yet somehow, national media seems to be only interested in showing items about commercial festivals as Werchter and such on TV.
There’s absolutely no reason for that. Dour’s line-up has proven year after year to be one of the best out there. Providing something for every alternative music fan. Including the thing we focus on, metal/hardcore and other alternative genres!
Starting of o...

Preview Olensfest 2015

Each year the small Olensfest succeeds to amaze us with a smashing line-up. And this year is no exception!

This festival is held on September 11 and 12 in the town Olen.

Friday already kicks of with a great list of bands! We find Storko, Hell City and Funeral Dress on the poster.

And what about Cock Sparrer! These London based Punk Rockers already unleash their riffs since 1972. Many have tried to sound like them but none ever succeeded! Still alive and kicking, on stage at Olensfest.

Also playing on Friday, and not really needing an introduction are our boys in Evil Invaders! They haven’t been around nearly as long as Cock Sparrer but their road to fame is impressive so far! After touring Europe and even Japan, they will now take over the stage of Olensfest to play their smashing...

It’s almost there ! The first edition of Dynamo Metal Fest.
A new festival in Eindhoven (The Netherlands). Nothing to complicated, 1 stage, 8 great bands, a festival market and a couple of bars ! The festival is half outdoor and half indoor. SAY WHAT ? Yeah,you’ve heard me.
It’s half covered so if it rains you can still enjoy the show dry and if it’s sunny you can lay down in the grass. Need another reason to come ? It’s only 15 euro in presale and 20 euro at the doors.
There isn’t much parking space but if you park at the trainstation you can take a pendlebus to the festival and back for only 5 euro.

It’s a cool lineup which contains international and local hardcore,death&trash metal acts.
