• Emmure, For the Wicked, The Dignity Complex & First Division gig review

    After 3 long years, Emmure dropped their seventh studio album “Look at Yourself” in 2017,  using 2018 to take the album on the road. I stood among the sea of coloured t-shirts and young people slowly filling the restored outdoor venue of Quantic Club, on a sunny day. The...
  • Thy Art Is Murder & Local Support at Quantic Open Air

    On the 2nd of July, I had the chance to be among those who were eager to see Thy Art is Murder. With a bit of delay, I managed to arrive in Quantic, but unfortunately when As I Fall was playing their last song so I can’t give you...
  • Tragic, Flesh Rodeo and Last Rizla show review

    This Saturday was the right time for some sludge and punk riffs. The noisy summer evenings are back in Quantic and there are filled with good music. The main act was the Greek band called Last Rizla who visited the Romanian stage for the second time. The opening acts...
  • About Grimegod, Katara and EvergreeD gigs

    Last Saturday was about old feelings and great people. In the opposite part of the town, there was a gig that aimed to throw me back in time. The gig was set up by the venerable Titus Constantinescu, one of the veterans of the Romanian metal scene, under the label...

  • North of the Wall in words; day one

    Day One The adventure started in December when me and my friend first thought about this festival. It seemed hard to get there but the line-up convinced me. It has often been a source of frustration for extreme  music lovers that bands don’t necessarily get the opportunities to tour...
  • Satarial/Apa Sâmbetei/Kroppen/Sâmbăta Morților

    I never considered myself a black metal fan. Even though I listen to some bands and I really enjoy a couple of songs, there is nothing “”to die for”. Yet, on Saturday night I left my house and headed to Fabrica, where something great was going to happen. I’ve...
  • Akral Necrosis, Mercy’s Dirge & Vathos – concert review

    On May 18 night I witnessed a full black metal night where the hosts were Akral Necrosis, Mercy’s Dirge and Vathos. The first band on stage was Vathos, a young band from Bucharest. They claim that the genre they approach is Post black metal. To be honest, I haven’t...
