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.

WARLORD: The legend of William J Tsamis lives – Interview and...

To tell you the truth I was a little bit skeptical when I first learned about the Warlord tribute project set by drummer and founding member Mark Zonder and singer Giles Lavery to honor the music and memory of founder guitarist William J Tsamis who unfortunately passed away back in 2021. I was looking at the facts very closely, reading announcements about forthcoming live shows, new line up and a new album. The response from the fans was massive including both positive and negative (or very negative) comments about the above facts. "How can Warlord exist without Bill Tsamis?", they were asking. One afternoon I got a call from Giles Lavery himself asking me if I wanted to do an advance review of the forthcoming Warlord album. I replied positively still being in this skeptical mood. It all went away after the first listen... William J Tsamis was there. His music, his legend, his compositions, evolved into complete songs. In total excitement I texted Giles a single message "Bill is alive". The very next evening found Mark, Giles and I talking about the album, about Bill, about the music and the legacy. It was late at night when we ended the call. I asked them if I can publish our conversation and they got no problem. So here it is again: Me talking with Warlord. The usual stuff I am doing the last 25 years for various reasons. But this time I would not call this conversation an interview. To my eyes this is a big ethical, artistic and soulful statement, by some people who want to keep the Dream, alive.
