New review added 15.01.2018:

New interview added 14.12.2017:
Czech Republic has a very big variety of extreme metal bands and that is for sure. I would recommend now to read an interview with SOLFERNUS, a rather interesting and unusual sounding Black Metal band from Brno. My questions were answered in a super quick manner by guitarist & songwriter Igor Hubík. So read the outcome and perceive the igneous dominion of SOLFERNUS!!!

In a circle of close metal friends I visited 10th of June, 2005 Budapest (Hungary), to be precise the boat called A38, to experience the unrestrained live energy of a band that had a constant influence on me beginning with their majestic "The Somberlain" debut album. Then the follow-up "Storm of the Light's Bane" became something very special not only for me, but for thousands of metal brothers, and I think most of you agree that it is a milestone for the metal genre in general. 2004 was the year when DISSECTION fans worldwide celebrated the rebirth of their beloved band with a strong heart-beating! The same year an appetizer for the forthcoming 3rd full-length album has been unleashed, the aptly titled "Maha Kali" EP. Needless to say, it is as flawless as their predecessors. Back to the gig on the boat, it simply electrified me to the maximum. My dream came true and I finally witnessed all the old classics (like "Frozen", "Unhallowed", "The Somberlain", "Night's Blood", etc.) in their entire nature. So it finally happened and I am very thankful to DISSECTION. And to top it all, I managed to commit an interview right before their amazing gig. I asked Jon Nödtveidt about their latest EP, actual line-up, lyrical content and last but not least about their future plans. Behold the masters of chaos and anti-cosmic Death Metal. Fear the return!!!!!!

Time is a thing we must accept.
The unexpected I sometimes fear.
Just when I feel there's no
excuse for what happens,
things fall into place.
I know there is no way to
avoid the pain that we must
go through, to find the other
half that is true.
Destiny is what we all seek.
Destiny was waiting for you and me.
I believe behind confusion,
awaits the truth for us.
Past the obstacles we face.
I value our life and trust.
Years of questioning why
things happen the way they do in life.
Wishing that I could turn back
time, so we could join our souls.

100% pure underground edition!
Extreme reading for extreme people!

You are die-hard maniac entering these mazes of extremity
