It is a fact that a lot of people around Toby Knapp‘s projects are mainly searching for this very specific vibe that he offered under the ONWARD moniker.

NECRYTIS is actually the project that let former ONWARD main man to re-discover some of his very important influences again.

With their “Countersighns” debut, NECRYTIS managed to make quite an impact on the underground universe. Now, not even one year later, their second output “Dread En Ruin” is completed. So we can point it for sure: NECRYTIS are back.

If you are mainly focusing into the Melodic side of US Power Metal then NECRYTIS are for you. Although I must point that the new material is approached under a more Progressive prism, compared to the debut.There are still plenty of influences to be discovered in here under the main QUEENSRYCHE/early FATES WARNING basis. Traditional and NWOBHM touches are spread around the album’s compositions, making the final result ev​en more interesting musically. And yes, allow me to point it before you ask: ​the influence of Onward can be heard everywhere.

​Well it seems that ​​d​rummer, vocalist, lyricist Shane Wacaster and Knapp ​are sharing an excellent musical chemistry together. The second NECRYTIS album is the proof. ​

Go for the album and play it loud. “Starshine” is one of the best songs released this year.

I breathe for music. And I am more than sure that my mission in this universe is to make everybody agree that "Awaken The Guardian" by FATES WARNING is the best album ever released, yes in all musical genres. My next mission is to feed homeless cats and when I am not busy with all this stuff I listen to US Prog / Power and Epic Doom Metal. And I cast spells in rituals in order to awake the old ones.

Interview with ETERNAL CHAMPION

I guess that for the readers of Forgotten Scroll, ETERNAL CHAMPION from Austin, Texas, US, need no special introduction. Their “Armor of Ire” debut is already identified as a classic on the Epic Metal genre. They are about to march into battle again, releasing a second album called "Ravening Iron", so yes, this is a good chance for a discussion with the band's singer Jason Tarpey.
