Review: The Devil's Blood - The Thousandfold Epicentre

When you hear that a band's main themes are Chaos, Death and Satan, you well expect its music to be closer to black metal. But that's not the case here. Coming from the Netherlands, The Devil's Blood is a hard rock band that incorporates a very vintage sound. Take early Black Sabbath, put in a little bit of Coven and a little bit of Jefferson Airplane and there you have it. On 11/11/11, The Devil's Blood released their second full-length album, “The Thousandfold Epicentre”. It only takes a few seconds for the opening track “On The Wings OF Gloria” to demand your full attention.

Studio Report: Dimlight - Psychosynthesis

Dimlight, in my opinion, is one of those few very promising bands that can offer something more to the Greek metal scene. They started in 2009 with “Obtenebration”, a quite good debut album, which I really enjoyed. Now it's time for them to take the next step, with their second full-length album. Metalpaths, along with some other metal webzines, had the chance to be present at the press listening session of “Psychosynthesis” at Devasoundz Studios. After a very warm welcome from the band members and Fotis Benardo of Septicflesh (and owner of Devasoundz Studios) we got comfortable in our chairs and with our drinks, and we got started.

Arcturus @ Gagarin 205, Athens, Greece, 04/02/2012

When I heard a few months ago that Arcturus would visit Athens, I couldn't hold my enthusiasm. From the beginning of their formation, they have been one of the most distinctive Norwegian black metal bands, incorporating to their music avant-garde elements and making their concerts an amazing theatrical show. I never had the chance to see them live, then to my misfortune they split up for five years, so Saturday was the time for me.

Arch Enemy, InsIDead @ Gagarin 205, Athens, Greece, 20/01/2012

There are a few bands in metal that can guarantee you that you will have a great time at their concerts, if you like their music that is. Whether their albums are masterpieces or something less it is irrelevant. I believe that Arch Enemy is one of these bands. Whenever they announce a live, it 's a sure thing that they will be great performance-wise and that the fans will have fun. Their last release, “Khaos Legions”, may have received mixed reviews, but the fact that the band will take a long break after their tour is finished, made many metalheads run to Gagarin last Friday.
