Week 68 – Tempting Fate

Welcome my HeadBangers from Los Angeles, California the Rock/Metal Band:

       Tempting Fate


To put it in my words these guys are fucking SIK.  I love them and welcome to the blog.  Remember there is metal in everything my HeadBangers.


I love how they slide into the hard darkness.  You know those growl vocals kill me.

Let’s look at some bio taken from their site:

Tempting Fate has set out to deliver a unique blend of music, with a style all their own. Their music can be described as heavy grooving, melodic, and fast metal focused on catchy choruses and harmonized guitar solos.The band was formed in 2010 by brothers Cory Beecher (Vocals) and Shane Beecher (Guitar), with the recent addition of Matt Campbell (Bass). Tempting Fate has built a strong following over the past five years, playing countless shows across the coast, including the Sunset Music Festival. The band is currently in the studio, focusing on their new sound and album – out early 2016.

Their latest release, ‘ILLUSIONS’ dropped in 2014 and can be downloaded for free. The eight track EP was written, recorded, and produced entirely by the band. Stay tuned for the next era of Tempting Fate, coming 2016!  They also have a lot of new music, check Utube for the latest.  It doesn’t disappoint believe me.

Let’s meet the band:

Cory Beecher: Vocals
Shane Beecher: Guitar/Vocals
Matt Campbell: Bass
Alex Rivas: Drums

“Death Of Me”

Can’t help myself HeadBangers, I had to put another song on, it’s just that good.

“A Place Called Home”

“My Thoughts”

All my HeadBangers know I’m into Melodic Dark Death Metal, that is where my spirit finds peace, but then every once in awhile there comes a band that takes me away to another place.  This bands energy just grabbed me like an iron fist and held on tight till I had to bring them to you.  I love how they erupt into this beast we don’t see coming.  As you can see by their songs they are a power machine, fast and hard just like all HeadBangers like it.  If you’re lucky maybe you’ll get to see them at a gig and that would be an experience.   Tell me what you think…..

That’s it for this week my HeadBangers.  Join me next week for another band and another song in the meantime, don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..

Week 67 – DYNAZTY

My HeadBangers welcome from Stockholm, Sweden: DYNAZTY

I’m just jumping right into this song.  These guys are giving me, goosebumps HeadBangers

“Presence Of Mind”

Ok my HeadBangers, this band is killing me and not softly.

Let’s look at some bio, taken from their site:

Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, DYNAZTY has been a force to be reckoned with on the melodic heavy metal scene ever since. Since their inception the band has toured internationally, garnered a devoted fanbase and critical acclaim as well as a reputation for being fiercly ambitious by releasing 5 albums in a mere 7 year window. After a 60 date tour-run in support of 2016’s TITANIC MASS album, the band started the work on a follow up. Resulting in DYNAZTY’s most adventurous and complete album yet – FIRESIGN. To be released on the 28th of September 2018, FIRESIGN is simply not to be missed. Singer Nils Molin says about the album: ”Even though it is quite the cliche for a band to herald about their new album being the best thing since sliced bread, I simply can’t resist doing the same here! FIRESIGN is our most creative, dynamic and inspired album yet. Simply our strongest effort so far! Bring on September 28th!”

Let’s meet the band:

Nils Molin: Vocals
Love Magnusson: Guitars
Mikael Lavér: Guitars
Jonathan Olsson: Bass
Georg Härnsten Egg: Drums

A few things I didn’t know about Stockholm:

Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, encompasses 14 islands and more than 50 bridges on an extensive Baltic Sea archipelago. The cobblestone streets and ochre-colored buildings of Gamla Stan (the old town) are home to the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum, which focuses on the Nobel Prize. Ferries and sightseeing boats shuttle passengers between the islands.

Learning about a band is also learning about where they come from.  

“The Grey”

Swedish Melodic Metal at it’s finest my HeadBangers.

“In the Arms of a Devil”

My Thoughts:

Well my HeadBangers, Dynazty has everything I look for in a band.  Good music, a great singer, and all that hair doesn’t hurt one little bit.  My ‘Ear” could pick this swedish band out right away.  I could listen to them all night, hell maybe I will lol.  Excellent for Valentines Day my HeadBangers….

That’s it for this week.  Join me next week for another band and another song.  Until then donnn’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..

Thank you for your support HeadBangers


My HeadBangers, welcome from Budapest, Hungary:  DREYELANDS

“Can’t Hide Away”

Is this some Melodic Progressive Metal or what!!!!   I have goosebumps all over me listening to this OMFG.

Here’s some bio taken from their site:

Their debut album ‘Rooms Of Revelation’ showcases the bands versatile attitude for music being a tasty mixture of the metallic and the melodic side of progressive and power metal, combined with a touch of 80s AOR/hard rock music.

In 2002, long time band-mates Andras Adam Horvath and Gergely Springer decided to form a band to play progressive metal music.After recording a demo in 2003 Dreyelands recorded their first release, a promotional EP titled ‘Can’t Hide Away’ (released in 2007). There was also a music video made for the title song of the EP. This video was featured several times on the Headbanger’s Ball program of MTV Hungary with the EP receiving great feedback from not only Hungarian but also international press. During 2007 the band finished the song writing for the debut album ‘Rooms of Revelation’ which was recorded in several studios in Hungary and Serbia in 2008 and mixed/mastered by well known Hungarian producer/engineer Barnabás Hidasi at HL-Studio in 2009.

Hearing the band, the staff at Lion Music was blown away with the quality of material on offer and a deal was finalised in September 2009.

Dreyelands offer up a new fresh, yet classic sound in the melodic progressive metal genre and ‘Rooms Of Revelation’ opened its doors to the public on April 17 2010.

Dreyelands has won ‘Best Debut Album 2010’ on 6th Hang-Súly – Hungarian Metal Awards for Rooms of Revelation.

The band featured on Lion Music’s Embrace the Sun project with a previously unreleased song, ‘Life Is Worth The Pain’. This double compilation CD was for the vicitims of the March 2011 tsunami in Japan.

Dreyelands opened for Queensryche, Fates Warning and Adrenaline Mob on their recent show in Budapest, Hungary and for Leprous in Belgrade, Serbia.

Dreyelands will surely be cherished by those who like Dream Theater, Symphony X, Pagan’s Mind, Circus Maximus, Threshold, Headspace, Jorn Lande, Evergrey, Redemption, etc.

Follow Dreyelands at:


I’m including all their social media links.  Enjoy HeadBangers.


Let’s meet the band:

Omar Gassama – drums
Andras Adam Horvath – guitar
Nikola Mijic – vocals
Gergely Springer – bass


Close your eyes and feel this.

Here’s  some interesting history on Budapest.

The city of Budapest was officially created on 17 November 1873 from a merger of the three neighboring cities of PestBuda and Óbuda. Smaller towns on the outskirts of the original city were amalgamated into Greater Budapest in 1950. The origins of Budapest can be traced to Celts who occupied the plains of Hungary in the 4th century BC. The area was later conquered by the Roman Empire, which established the fortress and town of Aquincum on the site of today’s Budapest around AD 100. The Romans were expelled in the 5th century by the Huns, who were challenged by various tribes during the next several centuries. The Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin started at the end of the 9th century, and the Kingdom of Hungary was established at the end of the 11th century.  From around 1300 to the incorporation of 1873, Buda was the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary for five periods of less than a century each.

My Thoughts:

When I discover a band I’ve never heard before it takes me to another place, it’s the biggest rush in the world.   Then as I continue to listen and learn more about them the fire grows and I am the moth to their flame.  That is how it is with Dreyelands.  Their music calls to me in an unexplainable way and there is no stopping, I just go.  Now forever they will be part of me and my music.   The music is what keeps me going, without it I would be lost.  Listen to Dreyelands and tell me what you think.

Well my HeadBangers that’s it for this week.  Join me next week for another band and another song, until then don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..


Ques/Comments From My HeadBangers

Patricia T.

Write more, that’s all I have to say.  Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.  

You definitely know what you’re talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Thank you Patricia for taking time to comment.   First off this blog is my baby.  When I’m creating the blog, I put in videos because the songs speak to me and I want my readers to see if they can feel the same fire I do.  Secondly I am not wasting my intelligence, it’s all part of the process.  In the “My Thoughts” section at the end on each blog I speak to my HeadBangers about everything they’ve read up to that point, and give my feelings about the band and their music.  So see without the videos they wouldn’t know what I’m talking about.  It’s all a process and all my HeadBangers know that.  But thanks for your comment and I’ll see what I can do about adding a little more of my thoughts..  Thanks again.

My HeadBangers, welcome from Witten, Germany:  HOUNDWOLF

“Fast and Loose”

Here’s some Bio taken from their site.  It was in German originally so hopefully this is all correct.  If not my deepest apologies.

HOUNDWOLF is a heavy metal band from Witten (Ruhr area), which is dedicated to the Genre in its original rock’n’roll-driven form. The joy of playing, the songwriting and the authenticity of the statement always in the foreground. The band released after some demos on 06.10.2016 her debut EP “Fast and. Produced by Mike Misar (Label: M71) Loose ”, which contains three tracks from the upcoming album. The band consists of Milan Schloßmacher (lead vocals & guitars), Tobias Maienschein (Guitars & Backings), Daniel Teuchert (Bass & Backings) and Thomas Neuhaus (drums). The age range of the four members is between 23 and 27 years. The band has been successful for years with aggressive, fast riffs and groovy Hard rock parts to form songs with absolute catchy tunes and this to drive into the audience with conviction. The bandwidth of the Quartetts from punchy up-tempo riffs to catchy choruses and aggressive rock’n’roll to uncompromising moshparts and thus delivers Everything the Hard’n’Heavy heart desires. However, quieter ones also belong Passages and melodic hard rock ballads to the HOUNDWOLF repertoire. Despite the enormous versatility, the music of the four Witteners comes without any sound samples or backing tracks and yet remains sound unmistakable. HOUNDWOLF stands for honest and direct heavy metal, which is his at all times Roots in hard rock can be seen and always a central message:


Let’s meet the band:

Guitar/Vox – Milan Schloßmacher
Guitar – Tobi Maienschein
Drums – Thomas Neuhaus
Bass – Daniel Teuchert

Just a little info on Witten:

Witten is a tiny gem in Germany’s Ruhr region, lapped by the River Ruhr and considered to be the birthplace of the Ruhr’s rich mining industry. Today, this beautiful town woos tourists with a number of unique mine-themed attractions: industrial museums, hiking trails dotted with remnants of the industry, and exciting mine tours. Let’s plan a wonderful short getaway to Witten.

The guys are banging it out:

My thoughts:

Well my HeadBangers there is something about these bands from Germany that just grabs me.  I have been told I have “the ear”.    I can tell where a band is from by listening to their music.   I know it’s weird but it’s true.   Like Finland,  the bands have a distinct sound, which is hard for me to explain to someone but I can always spot them.  The same is with Germany.   I love this band, and I cannot wait to hear more from them.

Well that’s it for this week my HeadBangers.  Join me next week for another  band and another song.   In the mean time, don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
