Song of the Day : Squealer - Martyrs of the Half Moon

Martyrs of the Half Moon

I have been a fan of Squealer since The Prophecy came out in 2000. I even got to see them on my one trip to Wacken in the same year. They play a mixture of Power metal and Thrash. The album they released this year, "The Circle Shuts", is one of my favorites of 2008. Will definitely be in my Top 10!

Song of the Day : Sturm und Drang - Break Away

This is the new video for the single off their new release "Rock n Roll Children." Not bad....a bunch of 16-17 year old kids putting out their second album.. bunch of slackers!!

In all seriousness, this is an awesome melodic/power metal album.

Song of the Day : Asperity - Pray


Asperity's "The Final Demand" is a horribly overlooked melodic metal album. Chock full of melodies, both musically and vocally... with catchy choruses. Songs range from a few double bass tracks to some more 'brooding', but not really in a sense of Sentenced or anything.

Check the song and then you can check the rest..... you won't be disappointed!! UPDATED... you can now get the whole song.

Song of the Day : Crystal Eyes - Fighting

I have always been a fan of this band. I remember when I first heard their debut "World of Black and Silver." I was house sitting for a friend (Dee) and this was in a stack of new CDs he just got. Nothing fancy or overwhelming....just some good Metal!!!

This is a track off their new disc 'Chained'

Song of the Day : Sequester - Apocalyptic Smile

This is a one man project...that's right...One man performs plays all the instruments and does all the vocals....and it's not Black Metal!!

Here is the official blurb of Sequester.

Sequester is a one-man Metal project founded by Ryan Boc in 2005. All of the music thus far has been written and performed by Boc, having drawn inspiration from various genres of music including heavy and thrash metal, progressive and psychedelic rock, grunge, blues, jazz, and classical.

Sequester’s sound has been described as being both expressive and melodic, especially in the vocal and guitar sections as a result of harmonized layering. The lyrics range anywhere from personal topics to fantasy literature, and are generally sung with a clean voice– often with thrashy, more aggressive overtones.

Song of the Day : Incrave - Shades of Me

Shades of Me

I've been a little moody and this song by Incrave sure fits the bill. One of my favorite discs of 2008, for sure. Formerly called Evergrace, Incrave's sound is along the lines of Nocturnal Rites and the like but not quite as happy. Just great music by these young Swedes!!!

BTW, the link only has ten downloads...let me know if it runs out before you get a chance to hear it!

Can't you see, The pain inside of me
Tried it all, but no one hears my call
I'm all alone

Can't you hear, I'm screaming out in fear
I've sacrificed it all, I've rolled the dice
I'm all alone

How much more can I stand

Will I stay alive, I'm running out of time
See me as I am, The world is falling down on me
I'm so afraid, Can you save me from my own?

Song(s) of the Day : Moonville

Today's song is from a band I just stumbled upon a few weeks ago. The band is called Moonville. in 2006, they released their only (I believe) full length album "Silver Screen.: It is your basic melodic power metal album but it is done well....along the lines of Supreme Majesty.

My favorite song is called Strange Letters. Listen here.

The second song of the day is another by is their 'most listened' song on so ..... here ya go.

See you soon......

Song of the Day : Evergrey - Torn

This is the title track off the new Evergrey album "Torn". Evergrey delivers their best album, IMHO, since "The Dark Discovery." Full of deep, dark lyrics and solid songs, it is their best from beginning to end. The only 'drawback' is there is no blockbuster type song that is far above the rest, but all are very solid songs.
