While I'm typing this the snow is falling outside. The perfect weather to enjoy some fine music. Happily nowadays a lot of bands are putting up their new stuff online for listening so you can check them out before you might buy them. Stratovarius just recently did put out their actuall release called "Nemesis". I'm listenig to it while writing this one down. Sounds like the band did tape some very cool tracks which tend more into the powerfull direction. The last record I've heard from them was "Polaris" which turned out great for me but had surprisingly a lot of slow songs on it. So head over here and find out how the new album is.
Heaven shall burn are quite a different kind of music. Their sound is more set in the heavy, raw and hardcore direction. The new album will be called "VETO" and the band has now set up one song called ‘Land Of The Upright Ones’ for free download. There just one thing you need to do before downloading: solve the sound puzzle. Will you solve this quest? Try your luck here.
The last band in this little round up are Kamelot, a much underrated symphonic powermetal band. Their newest album has been released autumn 2012 and was called "Silverthorn". They recently released two single's from that album and will follow this path with another single called 'Falling Like The Fahrenheit'. Since lyric Videos have become very popular these days the band has decided to set up a proper one for this track. Judging from the lyrics it looks like someone lost someone who he/she was in love with or what do you think?
