Going back some 15 years or more one of the big staples of Metal was a band called Lacuna Coil. Thought of as a female fronted Symphonic Metal band, they seemed to group up easily into the Goth Metal bands of that day that were so popular. However, Lacuna Coil were not this at all. They were always quite unique in boasting two powerful singers in Christina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro, female and male strengths, together. Be that as it may, Christina...

Italian gothic metal giants Lacuna Coil bring us their latest offering, Black Anima, 3 years after their last album Delirium.

The opening track teases a notably different style, with vocalist Christina Scabbia taking on a higher lighter voice than usual, then there’s a breathy rhythmic vocal section similar to something Eivør might do. This hints at a darker and more experimental style to follow for the rest of the album.

Despite the uncharacterist...

Colorado gothic/symphonic metal outfit Beyond Forgiveness bring us their second full-length album Live To Tell The Story.

Although Beyond Forgiveness’ sound is predominantly gothic and symphonic, there are also some slight folky elements; such as the flutes on the opening track 'Echoes' and the closing track 'Forever Dream'.

The soprano vocals (Talia Hoit) are delicate and angelic and the vocal lines are catchy and easily to sing along to. The...

Even through the combustible proceedings of the single releases ‘The Raven Child’ and ‘Moonglow’, the elegantly dramatized Symphonic Power Metal project of outlandish Edguy vocalist Tobias Sammet progresses with the succeeding Avantasia instalment of Moonglow. After releasing both The Metal Opera and the The Metal Opera Part 2 over fifteen years ago, Mr Sammet could never have imagined that he would release six more illustrious episodes of Avanta...

Just off the back of their first ever UK tour, Eleine are rising up the ranks of the symphonic metal charts and taking the world by storm!

Eleine hail from Landskrona, Sweden and were founded when lead vocalist and model Madeleine Liljestam started working with the record label Cardiac Records along with co-founder and guitarist Rikard Ekberg in 2011. After four long years with Eleine releasing two singles in the meantime; ‘The Gathering Storm’ an...

The Norwegian Black Metal band, Dimmu Borgir, are no strangers to controversy, particularly surrounding musical style and genre. Their brand of Symphonic Black Metal has taken Black Metal to more mainstream audiences. In more recent years the line-up has had a bit of a shift around. Long-time members ICS Vortex and Mustis left the band before the release of Abrahadabra, leaving behind some signature clean vocals and trading synths for a full scal...

Symphonic metallers Leaves’ Eyes have had a bit of a rough go of the last couple of years. Given the dismissal of original and founding vocalist Liv Kristine and the all-too-public spat that followed, there was a great deal of consternation amongst fans as to whether the band could bounce back from it better than before or whether it was finally time for them to hang it up.

As ever, the truth lies someplace between the extremes; whilst all members...
