THE WORLD CUP OF METAL 2015 (RUGBY EDITION) SEMI FINAL 2

The second semi-final of the Rugby World Cup sees the Argentinians face off against the jammy, fluky, unworthy semi-finalists Australia (can you tell I’m a bitter Scotsman?) Who will win? Well if there was any justice in the world it would be Scotland but as the world is clearly unfair I’ll be <spoiler alert!> cheering on the Pumas!

SEMI FINAL 2: ARGENTINA vs AUSTRALIA

AUSLANDER vs MYRAETH

Auslander ( a German word for foreigner) is the brainchild of producer and musician Hernan Conidi. the music is a sweet combination of epic and melodic black metal with traces of doom, post-metal and folk metal into it’s mix. His debut album is quite reminiscent of the first Ihsahn album and that’s a good enough reason to check him out!

Myraeth are a step above the run-of-the-mill female fronted doom/death metal acts. Less Epica/Within Temptation and more of the November’s Doom/Swallow The Sun ilk. With the sweet ethereal vocals of Samantha Kempster (who also plays violin and keyboards) mixing with the Opeth style growls of vocalist/guitarist Ryan Casey, Myraeth are a great new addition to the doom metal genre.

PREDICTION: This is a simple one: Argentina to defeat the Aussies and hopefully by a cricket score. Yes, I’m bitter about the Scotland defeat but I won’t let it cloud my judgement….aye right!

Musically I’m going with the tie again as I’ve discovered two great new acts.

    “Myraeth are a step above the run-of-the-mill female fronted doom/death metal acts” Honestly I had no idea that “run-of-the-mill” female fronted “doom/death metal” groups existed! Hah! Love the post. Awesome writing.
