Promote YOUR Band / ALWAID - Symphonic Metal Band
« Last post by Neurosis Thorns on Today at 09:06:16 am »
Hi,  A few times ago I was trying to have some advices for my band, Neurosis Thorns which is now disbanded. So I've join a new Alwaid few month ago which is a female fronted symphonic metal band.  It was founded in 2010 by Marie, Robin and Max, who wanted to form a band both melodic and with a touch of heavy metal. They named it after a star that evokes a nocturnal and oniric world. Within a few months, the first songs were written and the band played its first gigs in local bars. The band's first demo was released in the course of the summer 2012. After a number of shows in 2013, the band's first album "Lacus Somniorum" was released in March 2014.
Here is some links to ear it, buy the Album or just to follow us ;)

My love for Dead Roots Stirring has really turned into an obsession in the last months... I think no week has passed where I didn't played it once. It's just astonishing how good this album is.

And it fits nicely with the fact that I'm finally seeing them live this month! Actually I'll see them twice, first they will play in Switzerland this Sunday, and next week I'll hopefully catch them at the Desertfest in Berlin.  :-*

I think it's quite normal that if you love a subgenre, there have to be some bands in it you really dislike. I like Bloody Hammers, but I can't stand the mentioned Purson, and I've never been a big fan of Kadavar - both bands just seem poserish to me.

For me, a large part of the Bloody Hammers appeal is the occult rock element, an aspect that always does well to flirt with the kitsh without crossing the threshold into parody. It's the same kick I get from the likes of Blood Ceremony, albeit they're a superior force to BH. I hear a consistently satisfying hard rock groove in their work too, even though I doubt they have it in them to exceed their debut.

I dig quite a bit of occult stuff.  Blood Ceremony is one of my favourite current bands...I play the shit out of those devil worshippers!! :P  I also really dig Purson, Witchcraft, Orchid, Kadavar, etc.  I think I just find Bloody Hammers' stuff mostly not as interesting as those other bands.  The guitar is just always power chord chug-chug-chug-chugging...almost as boring as my playing! :)

I think I keep trying because I respect the opinions of everybody on this forum and you've all introduced me to so much stuff I really like!

As someone who's prone to brisk and rigid judgement calls, I admire your persistence, Ray.

For me, a large part of the Bloody Hammers appeal is the occult rock element, an aspect that always does well to flirt with the kitsh without crossing the threshold into parody. It's the same kick I get from the likes of Blood Ceremony, albeit they're a superior force to BH. I hear a consistently satisfying hard rock groove in their work too, even though I doubt they have it in them to exceed their debut. Additionally, it doesen't hurt that they sound to me like the dark twin of Baby Woodrose.

I can understand why they mightn't be to everyone's liking/interest though, even within the confines of our musical bent. Significantly moreso than if someone of the hard/blues/stoner rock persuasion was to say they didn't care much for a band like, Graveyard, for example. That, I'd have a much tougher time comprehending.

I keep trying, but I really don't understand why people love this band so much.  I find them kinda boring... :(

I really like them when they debut'd their first album. I wasn't that into the follow up and am not as excited as some on the new one either. They had a cool thing going right off the bat, but for whatever reason I kind of got burned out on them and not really feeling the hype anymore either. Weird. I loved their first album at the time.
