“As promised, here we have a couple of new bands for you!First we have Polish preachers BATUSHKA who are on fire right now and who will bring their mass of darkpsalms to the metal masses again. And on top of that we have a household name of the genre. As apreliminary Christmass gift we have Norwegian cult EMPEROR for you! With the musical visionary Ihsahnin front, we can look forward for one of the greatest legends of extreme metal that brought us treasures likeInno a Satana, Into the Infinity of Thoughts, Towards The Pantheon and many more!Unfortunately, even Brutal Assault can’t be without changes and unpleasant losses.
