KINGCROW’S second full length release Insider is an ambitious concept album, similar in scope (and occasionally in style) to QUEENSRYCHE’S Operation: Mindcrime. The story of the album revolves around two lifelong friends who end up working for a large firm and accidentally stumble upon a plot to create an army of genetically engineered people to use for their own purposes.

Dark Tranquility and Sonata Arctica joined forces for Heavy Metal Poker Tournament

Yeah sounds weird, but seems to be a trend nowadays and in some ways a chance to branch out to new and old fans and maybe get paiiiidddd! Also it seems Nuclear Blast was getting in on the action (and you guys now im a Meshuggah fiend, so yeah whatever Nuclear Blast is in ill take a look see), so here is the gist of it…

Gnostic – Evoking the Demon

1997 watched the birth of many things evil in San Antonio, USA. One of them was performed by Obliterater and Necroghoul, being later completed by Lord Vistigium and Inferno. The attack upon humankind would be self-labelled ‘brutal fucking war metal’, a pompous way of saying raw Black Metal.

The gathering of murderous souls released ’98 demo Bloodwars of Heretic Supremacy, quickly followed by ’99 Necrobliteration promo. Then, after a carousel of adventures with labels, GNOSTIC agreed to have French Ordealis Records release two albums, the first of which is Evoking the Demon.
