Blissful Stream – Dead Religious (Review)

Blissful StreamBlissful Stream is a Swedish one man doom metal band and this is his latest EP.

I really like Blissful Stream.

Here we have the follow up to Eternal Black’s 2015’s self-titled EP, which was a very enjoyable, albeit brief, introduction to the band. Appetite firmly whetted, Bleed the Days is now here to show that this early promise has been followed up with something more substantial. Continue reading

Aeraco – Baptized by Fire (Review)

AeracoAeraco are a US hard rock band and this is their second album.
