Edenbridge - EDENBRIDGE makes an unforgettable entrance on My Earth Dream, delivering Symphonic Metal a cut above the rest. Grandiose hymns, driving double bass, and sensual melodies form a homogeneous and complete work. The musical achievement of Lanvall's crew is crowned by the excellent vocal work of Sabine Edelsbacher, who undoubtedly outdoes herself on this release. She understands how to perfectly bring out the nuances of this profound concept album. My Earth Dream is a magnificent conglomeration of sweeping and sophisticated epic tracks that fans of Nightwish and Within Temptation will enjoy.

Heidevolk - With Walhalla Wacht, the titans of HEIDEVOLK revive the traditional history of their native province of Gelderland and their Germanic ancestry by providing lavish quantities of lore and legend cloaked with Folk Metal garb. Traditional instruments fuse skillfully with powerful guitars and thrashing drumming to provide the stage for the clear male vocals of the two frontmen. Whether tackling traditional ballads, crushing neckbreakers, drinking songs, or epic battle hymns, HEIDEVOLK remains true to their Folk Metal roots while delivering a uniquely authentic album sure to appeal to fans of OTYG or early VINTERSORG.

Katra - The Finnish formation KATRA raises the Gothic Metal stakes with their debut album Beast Within: classic rock instrumentation, tender harmonies, and heavy metal arrangements set the tone for the varied compositions over which Katra's strong vocals, capable of getting under your skin, reign. The eponym understands how to not only use her voice, but also her many charms to lure the listener under her spell. Beast Within reveals a broad spectrum of Gothic Metal with folk influences that ranges from catchy hits to sensual ballads accentuated by a very powerful production. KATRA stands for longing, love, and passion set to music.
