“Music is in our hearts. It’s our passion in life” – interview with Levinia

Well, melodic metal bands usually come from Scandinavian countries – well, we found a gem from sunny California. “I noticed that there’s a huge difference in the popularity of sub-genres.

It can be argued that melodic, symphonic, and power metal are way more popular in Europe, meanwhile, in America, those types of bands are not as popular. I like the fact that all over the world, there are a variety of sub-genres which are more popular than their counterparts, it just depends on where you go” – answered Casey Artus, the bassist of Levinia when we asked them about the differences between American and European metal. Check out the full interview!

“I always knew I had to fight and not to give up, whatever happens”

Approximately one year ago I found a bulgarian symphonic metal band, by name METALWINGS on YouTube – I became a fan immediately and I was so obsessed to find and buy their albums. I soon realized that they hadn’t yet released their debut material. But the times are changing – and “For All Beyond” is available worldwide since the middle of April.

„God, thank you for giving us the Finnish metal” – this was our first thought when we heard Oceanhoarse’s debut song (you can find the video below). Of course, we didn’t hesitate a lot and we sent them immediately an interview request – luckily the guys just as cool as their music, so Oceanhoarse’s bassist, Jyri Helko answered our questions, even if they were trite.
