Diablo Swing Orchestra – Pacifisticuffs (Candlelight Records)

Diablo Swing Orchestra – Pacifisticuffs (Candlelight Records)

I don’t know how it’s possible not to appreciate Diablo Swing Orchestra, but I suppose we all have different circuitry, which provides our different or even non-existent tastes in music. This is their fourth album of jazz swing metal, laced so far with dramatic classical.. 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
Winterhorde – Maestro (ViciSolum Records)

Winterhorde – Maestro (ViciSolum Records)

This album from the splendid ViciSolum label, which looks after a number of my favourite bands including Persefone and Loch Vostok, has been my companion for the last week. I didn’t know previously about Winterhorde who are from Israel but I can say now that.. Read More
6:33 - Deadly Scenes (Kaotoxin Records)

6:33 – Deadly Scenes (Kaotoxin Records)

To follow their previous album and collaboration with Carnival in Coal “The Stench from the Swelling (A True Story)” (2013), this Parisian band’s latest work also falls further into the twisted avant-garde sphere with recognisable rock metal melodies. As someone put it: “Experiencing a 6:33.. Read More
Bad Tripes – Splendeurs et Viscères (S/R)

Bad Tripes – Splendeurs et Viscères (S/R)

The story goes that this album arose from a desire to avoid the torpor of summer. I don’t know how true that is but it’s now summer and here is Bad Tripes’s second album. Reminding me of fellow French group Akphaezya in the absurdity of.. Read More
The Earls Of Mars – ST (Candlelight)

The Earls Of Mars – ST (Candlelight)

I have had great fun witnessing The Earls Of Mars live a few times and seeing people stagger out of the show at its conclusion with dazed looks on their faces, not knowing quite what they have heard and witnessed. Eyes take a while to.. Read More
Acrania - An Uncertain Collision (SR)

Acrania – An Uncertain Collision (SR)

With this much headfuckery ahoy, I usually find it best to ditch the PR and plough on. In the case of this very idiosyncratic group from Mexico, mostly because somewhere someone mentioned death metal, and it ain’t even ball park close. Actually if this was.. Read More
Molllust – Schuld (SR)

Molllust – Schuld (SR)

This album unashamedly announces itself on the sleeve as “opera metal”, which brings to mind a number of possibilities, among them Nightwish, Therion and Diablo Swing Orchestra. This is a band comprising an operatic singer as you’d expect, a cellist, pianist, electric violinist, guitarist, bassist.. Read More
Scythia – For the Bear (SR)

Scythia – For the Bear (SR)

Eluveitie, Alestorm, Turisas, Diablo Swing Orchestra, The Pogues – to this list of bands giving us rumbustuous romps add Scythia from Canada. Folk metal is their speciality, judging by this 7 track EP, which comprises three re-mixes of previously recorded material. From this fact it.. Read More
Retarded Noise Squad – Bananas (Self-Released)

Retarded Noise Squad – Bananas (Self-Released)

The concept of this album is intriguing. All indications were that this was not going to be some straight laced piece of music. I was right. Features a cover picture of manic monkeys, “Bananas” is on the face and hard-hitting eclectic mix of death and.. Read More
