Robert Plant talks about upcoming album with Band of Joy

No one ZEPPELIN album followed the next in style. I don’t want to get bored with my own gift. The last few years with [Plant’s band] THE STRANGE SENSATION, I was in the company of some real special musicians. When we were in Serbia or North Africa or West Africa or Mexico, I just kept absorbing all kinds of music.

Darksky – Where Angels Hide

Italian female-fronted progressive metal outfit DARKSY have been kicking around since 1997, in an odd move for a band, between then and now they have only released three E.P’s and no full-length albums. It’s not very often that a band waits thirteen years to release their first album, but I guess DARKSKY wanted to make sure everything was right first.

Speedblow – Fields of Doom

Since their initial formation in March of 2009, SPEEDBLOW have very quickly become somewhat of an underground sensation and their self-titled E.P has been heralded as a revelation in the stoner/doom genre. Until I received their new album FIELDS OF DOOM to review I was yet to hear them and only had the hype to go on, which did give me high expectations before I even put the disc in the tray.
