Veteran metallers Holy Moses are back with their whopping 11th full-length album, Redefined Mayhem.

Formed in 1980, Holy Moses are one of Germany’s original thrash metal bands, lead by front-woman Sabina Classen. Redefined Mayhem is typically vitriolic - with gritty riffs and powerful screams and a clear death metal influence at play. Fast and furious, Holy Moses prove they’re still a force to be reckoned with.

Spanish metal band Diabulus In Musica have just dropped their new album, Argia.

Argia is a dramatic symphonic opus. Soaring gothic vocals and chugging guitars are supported by a rich orchestral accompaniment, and Zuberoa Aznárez’s perfect soprano vocals let the melodies soar. Aznárez’s real skill lies in the way she tempers the epic fantasy metal with real emotion, and it’s in the ballads that she really shines. That said, there are also plenty of ear-splitting riffs and lightning drums to enjoy, and we move between the two with impressive ease.

A must-hear for fans of symphonic and gothic metal.

Out now: A War of Our Own, the 4th full-length album from Stream of Passion.

The band combine symphonic metal tones with progressive structures to create an ambitious and well-rounded album. Mexican front-woman Marcela Bovio’s Latin-American roots are at play in the composition, influencing the lead melodies for both violin and her effortlessly pure vocals, with lyrics in both English and Spanish.

A War of Our Own is beautiful and surprisingly understated for a symphonic metal album, but that doesn’t make it any less affecting.

Folk-metal band Evenoire are back with their second album Herons.
Influenced by European medieval and traditional Oriental music, Evenoire’s brand of gothic metal is punctuated by flute and folk melodies. These guys have grown a lot since their last release two years ago (Lisy Stefanoni’s vocals particularly shine), and Herons is a solid record. They may be one of many symph/gothic metal releases this spring, but Evenoire are definitely worth a listen!

Doom duo Nadja have just released their latest EP, Tangled.

Nadja’s music encompasses experimental/drone, ambient, shoegazer, & doom metal. It’s a unique atmospheric mix verging on the avant-garde. Tangled is neat mini album full of distortion, haunted whisperings and white noise.
