Tanith – In Another Time (Metal Blade)

Certainly an apt album title! Tanith are really going for that “In Another Time” vibe (man…), and there is plenty about their sound that is indeed from another era. They are certainly not your usual Metal Blade type band (a… Continue Reading →

Seer – Volume 6 (Artoffact Records)

Seer are a quintet from Vancouver BC -why do people always put BC is there another Vancouver – I neither know nor care- what I do care about is the big noise these 5 boys make.  (Edit – I have just… Continue Reading →

Transmaniacon – The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet (New Heavy Sounds)

Just who is Suzie and why is her world strange? Plenty of questions to answer here. Well apparently she is the creation of author Ian Miller whose work has stretched to book, art, graphic novels and films. She is a… Continue Reading →

Slaegt – The Wheel (Van Records)

This month sees Slaegt launch their third full length in just four years. The Danish quartet project a quirky upbeat nature through their music, even on early releases which were more straight-forward black metal. “The Wheel” continues where last years… Continue Reading →

Second Sun – Eländes Elände (Gaphals)

Sat as I am by a keyboard connected to an electronic system undreamed of in my youth that gives me access to all the information in the world I’m likely to need, and being in a position that I’m unlikely… Continue Reading →

Lucifer- Lucifer II (Century Media)

Johanna Sadonis might best be described as dynamic. After abruptly leaving her former band, The Oath in 2014 she quickly moved towards creating Lucifer. No time or efforts were wasted as ex-Cathedral riff master Gaz Jennings came on board to… Continue Reading →

Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Something a bit different this time. Besvarjelsen (“conjuring”, in Swedish, language fans) are a Swedish doom band, featuring luscious female vocals, and a vibe so warm and relaxed it’s like sipping a quality whiskey by an open fire during the… Continue Reading →

Earthless – Black Heaven (Nuclear Blast)

Do you have any Earthless in your life? If the answer to that question is a resounding “no”, it’s time for you to remedy that immediately, and before you go searching for the back catalogue this San Diego three piece… Continue Reading →

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Verdigris is more commonly recognised as some kind of strange blue-green-science-thingy involving acid, copper and weather effects… Or something which Wikipedia/A Chemistry textbook/Websters Dictionary or any other useful reference material can explain much more eloquently and effectively than I can…… Continue Reading →

The Medea Project – S/T (S/R)

Not to be confused with the theatrical group for incarcerated women, that’s not to be said that their namesake, The Medea Project as a band, do not show a certain thespian flair. Having been around for some time with many… Continue Reading →

Blue Oyster Cult: 45th Anniversary Tour – Manchester Academy 25-06-17

I have two lists of bands I would like to get round to seeing. One is the ‘Bands to see before I die’, the other is ‘Bands to see before THEY die’… Morbid and inappropriate? Maybe… BUT the fact remains,… Continue Reading →

Saturn – Beyond Spectra (Rise Above)

It’s been a while since Saturn’s retro debut that aimed itself quite specifically Hard Rock/Fledgeling Metal from 1974-77. Three years to be precise, but I’m here to report that the band have widened their field just a little (71-78 perhaps…),… Continue Reading →
