10 Dec 2008, 06:18 by das_eisenherzAnother year, another top 20! 2008 was an amazing year music-wise, and this is the first year where the top 3 albums could all have easily been number 1. Most of these albums are of such high quality, that had they been released in 2007, they would have been way more up in the list. It's also very sad that I had to make hard choices and not include some really good albums that would have been included last year.
Of course, it is again done accordingly to my taste and views of music, and isn't meant to be objective. I hope you had a great musical 2008 year, and that 2009 will be as exciting!
P.S. I'm a little in advance, but I wouldn't have enough time to get to know well enough to judge and rate everything released in December properly before the end of the year, so it will be included in next year's top 20.
20. Atrocity - Werk 80 II

18 Oct 2008, 00:33 by metalhobbit75Fr., 17. Okt. – L'Âme Immortelle
Beyond the Void
Es gibt mindestens eine Sache, die Österreicher besser können als ihre bayerischen Nachbarn: Düstermusik! Davon konnten sich die Besucher des L'Âme Immortelle-Konzerts in Saarbrücken am 17.10.2008 überzeugen. Die Münchner Gothic-Rocker Beyond the Void treten derzeit als Anheizer für ihre Kollegen aus Wien im Rahmen der „Jenseits der Schatten Tour“ auf. Leider gibt es einiges, was Beyond the Void gänzlich abgeht. Da ist zum einen Mal der Bassist, welcher der Band schlicht fehlt. So steht man denn nur zu viert auf der Bühne. Zwei Gitarristen, die zwar posen wie die ganz Großen, ihren Äxten aber nur nullachtfuffzehn Riffs entlocken. Ok, Progressive Metal war selbstverständlich nicht zu erwarten, aber doch etwas mehr als das bloße Geschrubbe von Powerchords, wenigen Melodien und kurzen Soli, die auch nicht gerade die Messe sind. Aber hey! HIM machen doch eigentlich auch nicht mehr! Stimmt, dafür können die Mannen um Ville Valo aber mit tollen Songs aufwarten…
4 May 2008, 09:21 by das_eisenherzWell, after several months of work, I am glad to reopen my website GermanMetal.com, under a new structure: a Wiki!
Some years ago, around 2002, I opened GermanMetal.com as a resource for international Rammstein fans to broaden their horizons and discover all the other great German bands! It was actually quite successful, but built in such a way that I had to do everything, and since the project was very ambitious, it needed more time than I could give, and died slowly. I tried many times to find ways to re-make it, but to no avail.
However, with the flexible platform a Wiki offers, I have now been able to build a structure in which other users can help and contribute building this huge project. Feel free to browse around the Wiki. It is far from very complete, but it should grow within the next months greatly, and more sections should be added to the 3 existing ones.
If you would like to contribute, we need helpers, so feel free to consult the Help and About pages and see…

17 Mar 2006, 20:43 by ineedcoffeesome "new"/interesting bands I came across recently (by the way: how can one be too bored to feel bored? guess I can^^):
don't quite know how to categorize this band from Finland. best guess: somewhat progressive yet simple.
As everyone can see, I've been listening to their latest album quite often in the last few days :) somehow it's got this special something which makes almost every song very catchy. my favorites at the moment from their album "Deviation From the Flow" are "Assembly Line" and "The Industry" though the entire album is worth listening. Didn't know the band until last week but I might already consider myself a fan ;) About that "yet simple": it's because the music is quite minimalistic - for prog metal standards. just drums, guitar, bass, voice...no keyboard or other complex background stuff as one might expect from a prog band. these guys concentrate on the absolutely necessary...or so :) heck, I simply like the album :)
