Nordic Fest Bands:

New Releases:

Amon Amarth : Deceiver of the Gods (2013)
If you say "Viking Metal" to any metalhead, Sweden’s Amon Amarth are among (if not the first) bands they name. Their lyrics center around Scandanavian mythology, and they employ a melodic death metal style that wholeheartedly embraces power.

Black Sabbath : 13 (2013)
Black Sabbath originally formed in 1968 as a heavy blues rock band named Earth. They incorporated occult themes with horror-inspired lyrics and tuned-down guitars becoming possibly the most influential band in all of heavy metal. They’ve since reunited with original singer, Ozzy Osbourne. Expectations are extremely high for this album. Can the Fathers of Heavy Metal deliver?

Megadeth : Super Collider (2013)
A pioneer of the American thrash metal movement, Megadeth rose to international fame in the 1980s and is considered one of the Big Four of Thrash along with Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, who were responsible for creating and popularizing the thrash metal sub-genre.

Local/Indie Band:

Heavy Metal Valhalla:

Venom : Black Metal (1982)
England’s Venom came to prominence towards the end of the NWOBHM era. Their music was a major influence on thrash and extreme metal in general. In fact, their second album proved influential enough that its title was used as the name of a new metal subgenre.
