Of Mice & Men – Cold World – Album review

Category: ArticlesReviews Comments: No comments

Of Mice & Men - Cold World

After I’ve been to one of Of Mice & Men’s concerts, I’ve been rather into them. To hear that they were about to release an album was something which was rather exciting to me. I was curious as to what kind of new music they would release, and whether it would be as good as their latest album, which was something I really enjoyed.

Game of War’ is a beautiful intro to the album as it’s calm and easy to listen to. It makes me curious for the remainder of the album. It does make me wonder when the rougher music will kick in. Clean vocals fit perfectly with the ambiance the music is trying to create. It could have been a little shorter, knowing that it is mostly used as an intro. It is a bit too soft to be such a long song for a band like Of Mice & Men

The Lie’ starts out slow ...

Lordi – Monstereophonic (Theaterror vs Demonarchy) – Album review

Category: ArticlesReviews Comments: No comments

Lordi - Monstereophonic

I’ve known Lordi for quite a while now. I must say I have to thank the Eurovision Song Contest for that, as I had never heard of them before that. Actually, they were one of the first Hard Rock bands that I started listening to back in the day, and besides their famous ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’, they surely had way more amazing songs. I was quite the fan of their latest album as well, so finding out there is a new album coming was a great surprise!

The intro surely is setting the tone, as it’s more horror sounding, creepy, just like we know Lordi. The intro leads up to ‘Let’s Go Slaughter He-Man (I wanna be the beast man)’, which does sound amazing immediately. The sound is more uplifting, but it still has a nice pace to it, and it makes me want to sing along right away...

Avantasia @ Tuska, Helsinki – 1.07.2016

Category: ArticlesConcert Photography Comments: No comments

A bit of a back story: my dad introduced me to Tobias Sammet and his work when I was around 10-11 and I’ve been a fan ever since. To be able to see Avantasia and take photos of their live performance made me fangirl so much! Therefore, they deserve their own post and a big thank you for an epic show that allowed me to take some shots I’m proud of!
