Anhedonia , their debut LP, is for the large part dark and brooding. The narrative follows a character in trouble, looking to change their life, a reflection on the album title — an inability to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable.
The only glimmers of hope and salvation come in the form of I Survived and the final track, Sing. The former finds Corey leaving a God forsaken town to start a fresh.
The chorus is almost a last bastion of hope:. Luckily, they continued to write the album despite the setback. Despite the title, Stuck Inside My Head finds the character again looking to turn a new leaf with talk of moving on, learning to make it on their own and feeling stronger now. Whilst keeping their indie rock sound, there seems to be a greater focus on sequencing and layering guitars which can be heard previously on Doppelganger. This progression from Anhedonia offers a rich, atmospheric sound with guitars seemingly weaving and playing off each other.

However, touring schedules, flight departure times and other factors sometimes come into play, and as always we have had to make a few compromises. Click here for the running order! Further details including a new single, video and extensive worldwide tour will be announced in the coming weeks.
ACT I topped charts throughout Europe, with a sensational no. The video version held steady for over two months at the peak of the Finnish music video charts. Her voice has deepened and darkened is recent years while losing none of her upper range, resulting in a tone that can be treacle dark and syrupy, rich and warm and velvet but also silvery light and nimble, as each song demands.
And this is especially true for ACT I. It is also a Step I, the first live album Tarja has produced since her days in Nightwish and a statement that her solo career will continue at all costs.

Swedish guitarist Stefan Lindholm has now reached that defining moment in his career. As the founder and musical backbone of Vindictiv, he is responsible for some of the most exquisite examples of contemporary neoclassical metal. This time round Vindictiv have challenged themselves to get their point across not through complexity, but through forthrightness.
At the same time, I think it just may be more metallic than previously. It is indeed, albeit a new and exciting Vindictiv. Vindictiv has turned over a new leaf, a more predominantly song-based one, without sacrificing any of their defining characteristics which include the usual blistering guitar solos and great vocal work.

Once there, our heathen legion will join forces with the tribes of Ensiferum, Tyr, Trollfest, and Helsott to form a horde of unsurpassed power! Hail the gods, hail to Vinland! See you at Paganfest America! All of this comes to a surprise, because this project was meant to be something that no one would ever hear about. So as time went on and we started to be successful, we always agreed to do everything ourselves, to keep it our way. The only way we were ever going to work with anyone was if we knew they were dedicated to worship the past as we were.
Now that we are here with Napalm, we will continue to create this hidden message. But with their help, they will be revealing this to the masses, and we are okay with that now. Because of the records we first created only for ourselves will be released with everything we dreamed from the beginning, destiny has come for us to work with Napalm Records.
