J-Pop And Idol Groups – Nippon Month 2017

March 31, 2017

Okay, so I actually had an idea that I would be discussing why I enjoy this kind of music, but then I remembered that I already did something similar back in 2015, when I was writing in Swedish. So I thought why not translate that one into English, improve upon it and maybe see if […]

I got an email the other day from Domo Records telling me that there’s a new Kitaro album coming out! I do remember hearing something about it before, but I shook it off since there weren’t much info about it, but now it’s done and it’s here on the 21st of April :) I highly […]

Grave Digger is one of my absolute favorite Metal bands out there and has been for many years, and why shouldn’t they?
