Bob Malmström – Länge leve (Elitbolaget)

Punk! And as it should be: loud, fast, angry, trashy, vulgar and respectless. Länge leve, has got it all, including a “fuck you” attitude. Or how else to call it when a Finnish band send their release to a British… Continue Reading →

Idle Hands – Mana (Eisenwald)

The inventiveness of the wider metal genre never ceases to amaze and delight me. Every once in a while, a band comes along that gives a familiar sound a new twist, a twist that I did not expect, making me… Continue Reading →

Heilung, Seven That Spells, Messa – Roadburn Festival Tilburg Holland

Too little time, too many good bands to see! That about sums up the two days I spent at this year’s Roadburn festival. The three shows I’ve chosen to review might not look like the obvious choices, but taken together… Continue Reading →

Arabrot Speciale – Die Nibelungen (Pelagic)

Where to start, and where to end? What to mention and what to leave out? How much context and explanation to provide? Figuring that one out has never been quite so difficult. There are so many interesting details to convey… Continue Reading →

Radare – Der Endless Dream (Golden Antenna)

Wiesbaden. Not the most exciting place on earth. Not today, at least. Fancy, though. And rich. The German town used to be very famous for its hot springs, and for being a bathing and gambling place. It was once called… Continue Reading →

Falaise – A Place I Don’t Belong To (A Sad Sadness Song)

Where’s the righteous rage paired with the credible threat of action gone from music? You know, the thing that hardcore had a claim on. Black metal, too, but in a different way. From today’s perspective, anyway, being anti-Christian seems pretty… Continue Reading →

Interview – Sanhedrin

We talked to up-and-coming heavy metal trio Sanhedrin from Brooklyn, NYC, currently on tour in Europe. Between the sound check and their show in Vienna, Austria, Erica Stoltz (bass, vocals), Jeremy Sosville (guitar, backing vocals, also of Black Anvil), and… Continue Reading →

Gatekeeper + Sanhedrin – Arena Wien 13/3/19

Don’t you feel right at home and among your kind in the dodgy atmosphere of an underground club? With the stickers, the graffiti, and the smell of yesterday’s spilled beer? I do. I had never been to the Arena in… Continue Reading →

Membrane – Burn Your Bridges (Atypeek Music)

What’s with that bird on the cover? Is this a picture of some kind of ritual I’m not aware of, or is it just a picture of a dead bird? Also, why is the bird placed on someone’s bound-together feet?… Continue Reading →

Enisum – Moth’s Illusion (Avantgarde Music)

Best to say it straight, right? OK then: This is the best album I’ve had to review in quite some time. Enisum might have their name backwards, but apart from that, it appears, they are doing everything right. Enisum are… Continue Reading →

Kings Destroy – Fantasma Nera (Svart)

There’s something very satisfying in the earthy, deep and reverberating bass lines of stoner rock. They go straight to your guts and remind you of your most basic feelings and instincts. I liked that sound when it first appeared and… Continue Reading →
