The sun is out, the sun is shining, but we’re not slumming it in parks listening to terrible summer music just yet. Oh no. Some of us are making sure the beard-stroking, mind-expanding sphere that is Prog isn’t going unattended – step forward David Keevill, who returns with his latest column examining what the big stories and events in the world of Prog have been over the last few weeks…

It’s time for us to delve into the world of Black Metal again with Cheryl Carter’s latest column…
As this column progresses, the format and what’s talked about will change. Because evolution is cool and fact and it keeps it interesting for myself and you lovely readers.

First up is David Keevill, who returns with to take a long hard look at what’s been going on in Prog so far this year…

In addition to penning a monthly black metal column for Thrash Hits, writing reviews and features for Metal Hammer, promoting extreme metal shows, oh, and having a day job, Cheryl Carter also manages one-man black metal act Caïna. With the sixth full-length Caïna album, Setter of Unseen Snares, being released this month, we figured now was as good a time as any to make use of our publisher’s leverage to get Cheryl to give us the inside scoop on the story of what looks likely to be one of 2015’s most interesting extreme records. Take it away, Cheryl…

We promise (really promise!) that this will be the last lookback-at-2014 thing we post. Except maybe a podcast (and that’s a big maybe). Whatever. We’re launching yet another of our splendid genre columns today, this time with one of our long-time death metal aficionados, Rob McAuslan, taking a quick look back at the biggest things that happened (or in one case, learned about what’s coming) in the wonderfully fluffy world of death metal.
