REVAMP en Mexico el 18 de Junio @CircoVolador @Floorevamp

Bandfoto B



Singer Floor Jansen needs no further introduction after 12 years of loyal service with After Forever. After the break of this band she knew she wanted to continue making metal! To accomplish this she joined forces with two additional songwriters to first compose, then record an album. The live band was formed after completion of the album!

The first composer to join this new collaboration was soon found in Waldemar Sorychta (Grip Inc, Enemy Of The Sun, ao). The second composer is After Forever colleague Joost van den Broek. The ReVamp sound has become a unique blend of the personal style we recognize from these musicians.

Floor’s voice is already known for its wide range and variety. In ReVamp she shows the world she can do even more! From opera to raw screams; from rock to a light and almost whispered sound. She knows how to ‘master the cords’ and takes you along with her on a wild ride throughout the album!

The word ‘revamp’ literally means: to renovate, redo or revise. For Floor it got the symbolic meaning that this band puts new energy into her career as a singer, a next step but at the same time a continuation of her dream. The word ‘vamp’ indicates, with a wink, ‘woman’. No vampires or slutty types, just a strong lady in charge of her passion.

The music is heavier than some of you might expect. Bombastic; but with heavy riffing. Complex and pounding drums mixed with melancholic strings. Crazy synth-sounds mixed with a beautiful choir. A wall of sound, yet transparent and versatile. And to finish this cake with a fine icing 3 special guests made this album extra special! Russell Allen (Symphony X) sings a beautiful duet with Floor. The fact their voices mix perfect together was proven before and on the song Sweet Curse they show ones again they are a magical duo.

Björn ‘Speed’ Strid (Soilwork) brings in power on a different level on the song ‘Disdain’. His raw screams make this song the heaviest on the album and create a nice ‘battle of the titans’ with Floor. On Here’s My Hell you’ll hear Dutch master grunter George Oosthoek (ex-Orphanage). The variety of these guests make the album extra interesting from the first note off to very last.

The (live)band was completed early 2010. The band now consists of: Matthias Landes on drums, Jaap Melman on bass, Jord Otto on guitar, Arjan Rijnen on guitar and Ruben Wijga on keyboard. 

The self-titled album has 13 tracks and presents a new dimension in the female fronted metalscene. It was released in June 2010 (Europe) and July 2010 (US) through Nuclear Blast.

Krux – Doom #Metal from Swedish – Popocatepetl video and lyrics

Hey guys I found this metal from Swedish named KRUX, They catched my attention with this song Popocatepetl, which is a volcano in Mexico.

In the eye in the heart in the flesh
In my mind all the time
Silver fountains golden castles made of ashes
Crimson tide blood like wine

Earth mother birth goddess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
A stream of fire inside you
Earth mother birth goddess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
I can’t exist without you

Dream forever prince of nowhere man of shade
I cast my fire where I go
Tears and treason in my prison night and day
You destroyer of my soul

Earth mother birth godess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
A stream of fire inside you
Earth mother birth goddess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
I can’t exist without you

Earth mother birth godess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
A stream of fire inside you
Earth mother birth goddess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
I can’t exist without you
Earth mother birth godess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
A stream of fire inside you
Earth mother birth goddess
I love you like no other
Within you around you
I can’t exist without you

@Iratetion – #metal from Venezuela


Being driven towards creating their own music,the Millano brothers did just that. Brothers Ismael and Ghork started writing for a project that didn’t have a name at the time. While one brother was living in Venezuela and the other in New Jersey,the desire of writing became reality. They began to create music in a way many musicians do these days with the help of sending files to each other over the internet.

Ismael handled duties of guitars/bass/vocals so they could be layered over Ghork’s drum recordings that were sent fron Venezuela. Later on,an old friend from Venezuela named Eduardo Escalante joined in on the project to handle bass duties. Not long afterward,the project was soon to be named Iratetion.

The recording sessions took place with Christian Machado and Laz Pina of Ill Nino at Soundwars Studios in New Jersey. Six songs have been recorded for a debut ep titled Motionless Decay. These song titles are Cold Refuge,Dazing Truth,Motionless Decay,Drill The Veins,Point Blank Rhetoric and Path To Hatred. 2011 will see a release of the Motionless Decay ep.
The current 2011 line-up is Ismael Millano,Ghork,Marcos Medina and Luis Acevedo
