diablomx Yes, we are on early 2023, but here we have a serious contender for album of the year. What do you want from an album? epic riffs? hallucinating solos? catchy lyrics? heartfelt melodies? Is there anything else you want? Ask for it, Draken have you covered with their sophomore album. Favorite track: The Book of Black.

Weirdo Shrine Your favorite Norwegian thunder metal band is back! Ever more thunderous and heavy, Draken have really shed their beginners feathers to full on rock with the heavy weights this time. Bands like High On Fire, The Sword, and Orange Goblin pop up in my brain while they keep on pumping up the tempo turning Book Of Black into a restless and sweaty affair. Favorite track: Bastards.

DenpaFuzz A cocktail that surprises you. Dense and aromatic, its content manages to provide you with rewarding and new sensations. DRAKEN mixes elements of metal, progressive rock, heavy-rock, but also hard-rock and stoner into the shaker, to obtain a magic potion, worthy of the Gods. A delicacy that, with each sip, offers you a different shade of the band, and all of them pleasant.
