Symphonic metal news with a sprinkle of fairy dust

Contact and Info For Bands

You may have noticed that I don't review albums that frequently. That's because, as well as being a blogger, I'm also a full-time children's author! This means I cannot guarantee a review/feature for every band outside of the ones I already have planned.

When I do review albums, my review duty is to Muses of Metal, who are dedicated to promoting the roles of women in metal. So here's how to get in touch...

(And you are in a rock/metal band with a female musician/vocalist!)
Please contact Muses of Metal and submit your info.

(For example - to have your band added to the A-Z of Symphonic Metal, or just to spread the word.)
Please leave a comment anywhere on the blog, I read all comments and will aim to reply.

You can also contact me (for any reason!) on Twitter - @hapfairy.

Hi Sophie
Great to see your page!
Please check out Symphonic folk metal band Serpentyne from London.


Hello Sophie,

I want to present you a new band hailing from Romania that was formed in 2014.
The band's name is "Tenebres" and they play a mix of symphonic black metal with doom and gothic touches. Their first album entitled "Pain Eternal" which was released this year on october 29, is a concept album.

The concept is based on Freud's theories about eros and thanatos.
The album concept explained by the band itself:

"With its fall, corrupted by the primordial evil, the edenic man has acquired free will, becoming both player and object of play in the hazardous eros-thanatos game.
The Eros can mean love, passion, but also nostalgia, sorrow, depression and hatred. Eros can be the reason of living, can vitiate the heart and the mind, but he also can give cathartic power to the spirit.

Conversely, the Thanatos is a return of the heart, burned by the passion, to the primary silence, to the inertia of transcendence.The Thanatos is the one who traps us all in the spiral of death and reminds us of our empty existence, of our transience.

All of the weakness in the world: greed, envy, hatred, lust and so forth, are derived from free will and from inability of men to overcome their condition and limitations continuing to act on lies in spite of learning some truths in his life."

"Pain Eternal" is actually this perpetual drama of mankind, revealed in a poetic way to make it easier to endure. This album describes an oneiric world where love can become poetry, death can become glorious and vices can become virtues."

The album was self released and produced by the band itself at the band's own studio Imperium Tenebrarum Studio.

Hey Sophie,

I've discovered this new artist from Germany - MajorVoice. Though being brought up by MONO INC. he does not fall to the Dark-Rock-Genre. I personally think, he's doing a fairly great job in proceeding a new way of symphonic metal.

Currently he's on his way of releasing his first album "A New Chapter" and has released a single called "Shot in the Silence", that he made a musicvideo to.

I thought you might be interested in that and i hope you got the time, to check it out. :)
