Most of you probably haven´t heard of The Man-Eating Tree yet but I am quite sure that this will change very soon because for me this band already belongs to the Nr.1 bands in the metal scene.

The whole band plays with a passion that is nowadays only rarely seen. STALKER met Vesa and singer Tuomas Tuominen to introduce you to a band that has a bright future ahead. >> more/mehr

Even in their early stages The Ocean raised attention in the scene, then they cut a deal with Metal Blade where “Aeolian” was released in 2006. The follower "Precambrian" (Novembwer 2007) convinced STALKER´s reviewer to give 10 out of 10, therefore we are eager to know from Mastermind Robin and Nils Lindenhayn (Live Visuals) what is coming up in the new year... >> more/mehr
