Last week's unofficial theme night was so much fun that we realized how much we missed doing theme nights! (official ones) so we decided to do one for you this week. This week's theme is BATTLE. With a great mix of all the genres we play, we played such songs as "Into Battle" by Ensiferum, "Valkyries" by Blind Guardian, "Architecture of a Genocidal Nature" by Cradle of Filth, and much more. We chose this theme because there is a lot that can qualify for 'battle': there are songs about fighting itself, war in general, mythic conflicts, genocide, and so on. We are really happy with how it turned out and I hope you all enjoyed it.
News was kind of short this week, as usual. Amon Amarth playing at the Bottom Lounge on Thursday, April 14, Rhapsody of Fire's vocalist began touring with Kamelot, and it is going well, Septic Flesh's new album is coming out on April 19, and Swashbuckle got a new drummer. Of course, for more metal news, feel free to visit Blabbemouth.net.
