The Dungeons Are Calling is an EP by the American heavy metal band Savatage, released in 1984 on Combat Records. Though the EP was not released until 1984, most of the songs featured on it and the debut album, Sirens, had been in the band set list since 1979, and are part of the Live in Clearwater and City Beneath the Surface EPs. The Dungeons Are Calling is a loosely based concept album and the title track, contrary to popular belief, is not about Hell or torture, but about the horrors of drug use. The song used many metaphors, which have been sometimes misunderstood

Malokarpatan refer to their own music as old school rural Slovak black metal, and merge their already rustic riffing with Slovakian folk elements; the album even opens with the sound of a Jew’s Harp being played alongside the happy noises of what’s presumably a Slovak cow, before a spoken word intro leads into the first (and absolutely ripping) complete song.

At the beginning of the year, right after The Wizard was released, we decided to switch to a 6 piece lineup and loved the sound so much that we wanted to record and release our first show together no matter how intensely unpredictable or potentially sloppy it was gonna be on stage. We wanted to do it no matter what would befall upon us. Well it ended up being a pretty cool night and without further ado...We are proud to announce our newest release, Dank Souls and Dark Weed: A Live Experience

This album is head and shoulders above any other "Oi" music. Probably because the band was a true combo of skins and old-school punks who actually decried the violence of the streets even as they painted a pretty brutal picture of it. Musically and lyrically, Blitz manages to rise above the inane, non-constructive retardation of the oi scene.

Siouxsie and the Banshees were an English rock band, formed in London in 1976 by vocalist Siouxsie Sioux and bass guitarist Steven Severin. They have been widely influential, both over their contemporaries and with later acts. Mojo rated guitarist John McGeoch in their list of "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" for his work on "Spellbound".The Times cited the group as "one of the most audacious and uncompromising musical adventurers of the post-punk era". Initially associated with the punk scene, the band rapidly evolved to create "a form of post-punk discord full of daring rhythmic and sonic experimentation".Their debut album The Scream was released in 1978 to critical acclaim. In 1980, they changed their musical direction and became "almost a different band" with Kaleidoscope,which peaked at number 5 in the UK Albums Chart. With Juju (1981) which also reached the top 10, they became an influence on the emerging gothic scene. In 1988, the band made a breakthrough in North America with the multifaceted album Peepshow, which received critical praise. With substantial support from alternative rock radio stations,they achieved a mainstream hit in the US in 1991 with the single "Kiss Them for Me". During their career, Siouxsie and the Banshees released 11 studio albums and 30 singles. The band experienced several line-up changes, with Siouxsie and Severin being the only constant members. They disbanded in 1996, with Siouxsie and drummer Budgie continuing to record music as the Creatures, a second band they had formed in the early 1980s. In 2004, Siouxsie began a solo career.
