STEVEN WILSON - Free, that means alone

Now he lays with "Hand. Cannot. Erase." A work as ambitious and complex as its predecessor. However, the bar is high. If and how Steven Wilson wants to overcome them and which direction he takes, he tells in a big interview.

ARCHIVE - The essence of the essential

Archive's new album works like a song that has phases of relaxation, but mostly consists of rhythmic barrage fire. "Restriction" grabs the listener at the first bar of the Schlafittchen, so that he won't let go until the last note. "Restriction" is not a concept album, but rather describes a continuous stream of consciousness with few quiet spots and many rapids.

JOE COCKER - Farewell to the White Soulman

No white singer had a voice as immersed in black soul as his. Hardly any of his colleagues landed so fast after the breakthrough so hard on the ground of the facts, but also only few fought their way back after the way by the drug and alcohol hell again so impressively to the top as Joe Cocker. His last fight, however, he could not win: On December 22, the 71-year-old Englishman died of lung cancer at his ranch in Colorado.

Successful title defence - BLIND GUARDIAN remain the most creative metalheads in the country with album number 10 as well

Musically and lyrically the group continues the great moments of their career. eclipsed spoke with singer/lyricist Hansi Kürsch and guitarist André Olbrich in the legendary studio kitchen.
