Metal Valkyrie Monday, brings a older picture of Epica front woman, Simone Simons.  I was lucky enough to meet her back in 2012 at a show, definitely one of the best concerts and nights of my life.  Epica is one of the best bands out there right now, having written some of the best Symphonic Metal in the world.  Her voice is endless and as powerful as professional Opera singers, yet she can bring aggressive Power Metal vocals as well.  Simone is a spectacular vocalist and a really sweet person.  Hope to see Epica again soon.

Repost from Tuomas Holopainen and Nightwish.  Vocals are done!  One can only imagine the greatness that was shown during these recording session.  Floor, in my opinion, is one of the greatest vocalists of all time.  I can’t wait to hear this new era of Nightwish.
"VOX done! Marco and Floor finished their vocal recording!!! We’re getting closer to the end of these magical recording sessions…
But this milestone in its process was celebrated with as much joy as the recording itself!”- Tuomas

New “One With the Storm” album teaser.  This album will rule my life for months after its release.  Ghost Brigade’s style of Melodic Death Metal is something ethereal, something haunting, something I’ve never heard before in music.  Check them out.

Scar Symmetry have a brand new track out today, off of their multi part album “Singularity Part 1: Neohumanity”.  Their new album is everything the fans love from the Swedish metal band, just refined into an epic long concept album.  The “Singularity” series is based on Artilects, artificial intelligent that are advanced beyond human mental capabilities.  I compare this album in particular a cross between Fear Factory, Soilwork, and Omnium Gatherum.
