REVIEW: Re-Armed - 'Ignis Aeternum'

Finnish melodic death metallers RE-ARMED unleash their fourth highly anticipated album on June 5th via Black Lion Records titled Ignis Aeternum which is Latin for 'fire forever' which seems a very fitting title for what is to come...

Opening track 'Dive Within' is powerful and fast throughout with quick fierce vocal bursts matching the speed and tone of the instruments wonderfully. It ends on a ambient beautiful note and gives you everything and more to keep you gripped.

Soaring single 'Beyond The Horizon' features endless resonant and striking guitars which makes it exhilarating throughout, as well as memorable clean vocals in the chorus, making a nice contrast to the harsher vocals and acts as a brilliant representative track for the band and album. It is solid and slick with technical instrumentation and tonnes of depth, something the band thrives on. This is one to stick on repeat.

'Ode To Life' opens with some strong and prominent bass and great le…

MAGNOLIA BAYOU Releases Official Music Video for Cover of Eddie James "Son" House Blues Hall of Fame Inducted "Preachin Blues'"

Mississippi based, Southern Blues / Rock Band MAGNOLIA BAYOU has released the official music video for their rock infused cover of the BLUES HALL OF FAME inducted, EDDIE JAMES "SON" HOUSE classic "Preachin' Blues." The fourth single off of the band's upcoming, sophomore album, STRANGE PLACE, "Preachin' Blues" was shot and edited by AUTUMN LEITH (WICKED & WONDER) & JOHN REYES (JOHN REYES NETWORKS).


Forged in the heart of a Mississippi swamp, Magnolia Bayou’s sound is appropriately reminiscent of the golden age of Rock N Roll, and it is simultaneously flavored with a heavy, southern swagger that is distinctively theirs. Their bluesy aura can be traced back to the groups origins, where they submerged and steeped themselves in their home state’s profound, musical wealth; covering the likes of Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Son House and so many more. Like their musical forefathers, the band spent thr…
