The Vice - XIII Years (S/R)

The Vice – XIII Years (S/R)

This E.P from Stockholm’s The Vice is 4 tracks of Nightbreed style Goth rock with hints of metal.  This trio layer on the atmosphere like the beer and sweat on the steps in the Slimelight (treacherous masonry that it is) . Rickard has a vocal style.. Read More
Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

I, probably like many other metal heads in the world, got into Perturbator aka James Kent, via the “Dangerous Days” album released in 2014 which for me was a chance listen when browsing the Blood Music bandcamp pages just sampling what the label had to.. Read More
Igorrr – Savage Sinusoid (Metal Blade)

Igorrr – Savage Sinusoid (Metal Blade)

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Igorrr, the one man band from France. With an early background in black and death metal, Igorrr aspires to “total music freedom” and has been active since 2005 in creating a hard-hitting experimental electro sound in the.. Read More
Cruel Wonders – Gentle Doom (S/R)

Cruel Wonders – Gentle Doom (S/R)

How about some folk music? Well, doomy folk noir, to be precise…all the way from Israel. Courtesy of Cruel Wonders, a duo made up of vocalist/guitarist Tamar Singer and Vlad Shusterman, providing the ambience and fuzz, ‘Gentle Doom’ is their aptly named debut album. Its.. Read More
Veikchild - Dark Hellectro Monument (iM Electronica)

Veikchild – Dark Hellectro Monument (iM Electronica)

Veikchild are a project formed by an unknown mastermind (I’m guessing French) and I suppose they are the goth/darkwave entry into the synthwave movement. This is more inspired by films/video games music with occasional bouts of singing added in. Their list of influences include amongst.. Read More
Emptiness - Not For Music (Season Of Mist)

Emptiness – Not For Music (Season Of Mist)

Belgians Emptiness have been on the go since 1998 and this makes their fifth studio album and my first encounter. Yep, finger on the pulse as ever… Anyway, I gather they come from a kind of black/death background which on the strength of Not For.. Read More
Caïna – Christ Clad In White Phosphorus (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

Caïna – Christ Clad In White Phosphorus (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

This UK based act helmed by Andy Curtis-Brignell have always been interesting and highly experimental. I remember the near neo-folk acoustic lushness of 2008 album ‘Temporary Antennae’ being a challenging listen with many ideas flowing through it. Fast forward to the present and the project..

Remain In Silence - …And The Soul Goes On (MIG)

Remain In Silence – …And The Soul Goes On (MIG)

The two cold-wave pioneers who are comprised of A. Buchwald (guitars) and A. Gimpel (vocals) have apparently been around since 1983. Classic they may well be but for me the journey starts here as I have to admit to never having encountered them before. Descriptions.. Read More
Dperd – V (My Kingdom)

Dperd – V (My Kingdom)

Dperd are an enigma. In a time of internet saturation they almost don’t exist. I used a popular search engine that rhymes with floogle to research them and came up with nothing, nada . Just a suggestion that I meant Speed. I eventually found them.. Read More
Braindance – Master Of Disguise (Dr Music)

Braindance – Master Of Disguise (Dr Music)

There’s a lot to digest here and that is not surprising as this album has apparently been a decade in the making. First we linger on the strange embossed sigils (taken apparently from over 60 alphabets) on the album artwork and unfold the triple plated.. Read More
GOLD – No Image (Vàn)

GOLD – No Image (Vàn)

GOLD’s mission statement is to “play a distinct form of heavy rock as a monument to civilisation’s decline”. This follow-up to their first album “Interbellum” is much more than heavy rock. “No Image” should really be called “A Multitude of Images”. After a psychedelically punkish.. Read More
