Prepare to cross a line in the snow! This week Bloody Roots retreats from the outer reaches of metal’s outermost frontiers and shines a glossy searchlight on highly emotional storytelling metal for fans of Frozen. Look for metallic links in the dramatic, dewy-eyed fables of Nightwish, Dio, the Gathering, Leaves Eyes, Epica, Within Temptation, Hammerfall, and others, including metal covers of hit songs from the film. Think of the children… and know your Roots!
