13 jan 2014, 19:57 av miotailtmilidhLast week I posted up a blog “We’re waiting for the dinosaurs to die out” discussing the problems I feel the British and Irish metal scene face in relation to the media (magazines and radio) and festival promoters (Sonisphere, Download, Reading/Leeds).
8 jan 2014, 14:12 av miotailtmilidhAn article that I've been needing to get off of my chest for a long time!
1 jan 2014, 17:24 av miotailtmilidhI decided I was spending far too much time sharing music on Facebook to friends who really don't appreciate my taste. So to be a little bit more constructive, I have created a new blog for the new year!

18 dec 2013, 19:42 av -SleepingStar-I have to say, it's been a fantastic year for metal albums including a few fair impressive debuts...have probably bought more new albums this year than any other. Well without further ado, here's my top 15...
15. Watain - The Wild Hunt
14. Burzum - Sôl Austan, Mâní Vestan
13. The Meads of Asphodel - Sonderkommando
12. Progenie Terrestre Pura - U.M.A.
11. Cultes Des Ghoules - Henbane
10. Feigd - The Dark Passenger
9. Lychgate - Lychgate
8. Falkenbach - Asa
7. Oranssi Pazuzu - Valonielu
6. Caladan Brood - Echoes of Battle
5. Leprous - Coal
Having been impressed with their performance at Hellfest and being my first exposure to the band, I checked out their discography and have discovered they've just gone from strength to strength with each release. Heavily focused on melodic vocals and driven by captivating synths, i've been listening constantly to to this album over the last few months and find it hard to put down!
4. The Ruins of Beverast - Blood Vaults - The Blazing Gospel of Heinrich Kramer
The doom influence on TRoB's sound continues to grow on every release but the band carry on being trailblazers in the world of black metal. What we have here is an album themed on the Inquisition and executed perfectly by the genius that is Alexander von Meilenwald. It will take multiple listens to truly appreciate the many layers of this lengthy opus.
3. Paysage d'Hiver - Das Tor
I would say that Das Tor demonstrates the greatest influence of side-project Darkspace of all of the bands demos - which works for me seeing how much I like them! It still retains a wintry edge but sounds like a chaotic blizzard blowing throughout.
2. Summoning - Old Mornings Dawn
We may have had to wait seven years for the follow up to their last album, but the band have definitely come back refreshed, with a more upbeat feel akin to Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame and plenty of other instruments in the mix. They still retain their epic/atmospheric trademark sound, especially to be heard on 'Of Pale White Morns and Darkened Eves', and of course their Tolkien-influenced lyrics are well-written throughout.
1. Nocte Obducta - Umbriel (Das Schweigen Zwischen Den Sternen)
Harking back to their musical stylings just before they went on hiatus seven years ago, this really is an innovative slice of avant-garde black metal, in parts serene and melancholic and simply beautiful music throughout - perfectly encapsulated in the track 'Leere'.

27 nov 2013, 06:54 av miotailtmilidhI am one of these people who gets sick and tired from hearing the same metal bands names being mentioned over and over by the music media and by fans of the genre. It irritates me, especially living in the UK, where fantastic talent is constantly missed or overlooked because the same names are constantly being brandished about. I think that is very evident by a comparison in music festival line ups from the UK and the rest of Europe, where the fans seem to be a lot more open minded to different and new artists while still embracing their music heritage.
With co hosting on the radio last year, it meant that I had an opportunity to support less well known music and support the underground while trying to engage fans of the genre. I am always looking for new ways in which to expose good music to more people, so I have started (since last night) to post a music video on Twitter every night of bands that I think should have a little bit more recognition than they get. I would LOVE to see other people that use Twitter doing similar with artists they like. I'm using the hashtag #MetalBandANight and encourage those of you who share my passion to join me in highlighting talent that is all too often overlooked!
16 nov 2013, 15:53 av miotailtmilidhMosh on the Radio are looking to interview rock and metal bands this coming week via Skype!
