Chronicles from Euroblast 2018 – Day 1

Euroblast 2018 was my chance to visit the festival during all 3 days. This festival attracts a very diverse crowd of music enthusiasts and musicians, ranging from pop-tinged progressive rock all the way to brutal technical death metal. The important thing is that the musicians involved are on the top of the class, both musically and personally. Read more to follow my full chronicle of these 3 days full of progressive awesomeness.

Julien Deyres talks about Gorod’s new album ÆTHRA

We were lucky to have a nice chat with frontman Julien Deyres from French progressive/technical death metal band Gorod and discuss the process behind their upcoming album “ÆTHRA”, from concept to recording and mixing, as well as a few words about their upcoming European tour with Beyond Creation, Entheos and Brought By Pain.

Riverside – Wasteland

Riverside is back with an album that will surely end up in most, if not all, top X albums of the year. And in most of them, it’ll be right at the up. Hype? Yes. An empathic wish that these 3 musicians find their way after a tragic loss? Definitely. Lack of objectivity? Most likely. Nevertheless, “Wasteland” represents a new path for the band. One that feels right and relatable. It is an inviting narrative, feeling as if the guys were reaching out to us and letting us peek into their mourning process. And it is definitely an excellent album. 4.5★

Arch Echo – Arch Echo

It might have taken a while, and a trip to Hannover to see them live, but Arch Echo’s “Arch Echo” definitely delivers on their promise to make complex yet accessible modern music. The work these five guys have put into this debut is admirable and witnessing the songs in a live setting gave us what we felt was missing from the album. A must-listen and, above all, a must-see progressive band.

ALKALOID – Liquid Anatomy

After such an engaging and challenging debut, there is no way but up for ALKALOID and with “Liquid Anatomy” they have pushed themselves beyond the confines of their respective careers in metal, elevating their compositions and songwriting and taking a deeper plunge into the progressive. It’s as though the heaviness, technicality, and virtuosity of their previous bands have met the songwriting and story-telling of bands like Rush and King Crimson. Excellent musicians making excellent music.

Ihsahn – Àmr

After 12 years and 7 albums, Ihsahn is still discovering new ground and sources of inspiration and producing great music that defies classification. Calling ‘Ámr’ a progressive extreme metal album might come close, but it still falls short. This is simply great music.

Poem, Damnations Day and White Walls Tour Review

Poem has the professionalism, stage presence, talent, and songwriting skills of a much bigger act, and I can only hope that festival organizers and the progressive community will give them the attention they deserve in the future. On the way out of the venue there were a lot of smiling faces and happy audience members, all in all, a night to remember.
