Traum ‘Erode’ DD 2014

5th May 2015 at 6:53 pm

Traum

Instrumental metal is hard to pull off. In theory, a celebration of huge riffs and thundering drums unsullied by someone roaring over the top is a great thing. However, it can end up backfiring, being tedious, and having you longing for a vocalist to…

11th August 2014 at 8:57 am

Music Blues
