A small selection of new videos from the last month, including Voyager, Between The Buried and Me, Helloween, Secrets of The Sky and more.
Voyager – Seasons of Age, from their 2014 album “V“. (melodic progressive metal)
As we did last month and as we intend to do every month, we’re very pleased to share some of the information posted during the month by our friends at Sonic Cathedral, the website that specialises in reviews of albums by female-fronted bands. Sonic Cathedral covers a wide range of female-fronted metal and rock.
Once again we’re presenting the album details, an intro from SC, and a link to the full review on SC’s website.

By now you may have seen our individual end-of-year best albums. If not, our main page is littered with individual lists of what rocked our worlds this year. Please, check it out. For those who stopped by, you probably noticed that we at Metal State have varied taste in metal. Only a few albums made it across multiple annual lists. Having said that, another list is about to get thrown into the mix; a first for this website.
Throughout the year we put together collective reviews we coined as “roundtable” reviews. With all four reviewers providing comments on these reviews, we present to you our Top 15, strictly by the numbers. It is worth noting that some of our roundtable reviews sometimes only include three of four reviewers. To be fair, we left those albums off this list. This Top 15 reflects only those albums where all of us could provide comments. Read the rest of this entry →
A small percentage of people of any age listen to metal. Probably an even smaller percentage listen to classical music. If you mix the two forms you risk bombing out completely. Fortunately bands like Dark Moor are masters of neo-classical integration.
Who was the master of pure integration? All you British, hands up for Newton. All you Germans, give a yell for Liebnitz. Of course a lot of the work both of them did was derivative.
