Squidhead - Cult[ist] (S/R)

Squidhead – Cult[ist] (S/R)

Miskatonic University graduates Squidhead are a three-piece who haul from Belgium and have nothing but high praise for the “Great Old One”. Spawned from the depths of Pierre “Pish” Minet, the project was initially a solo endeavour but it has now been blessed by what.. Read More

Twinge – Enslaved By Human Mind (S/R)

Back at the turn of the new millennium, give or take a year or so, Kerrang! was an actual relevant thing to me musically. It sometimes gave compilation CD’s and actually provided some decent features and helped widen my growing musical horizons and tastes. This.. Read More
Poem – Unique (ViciSolum)

Poem – Unique (ViciSolum)

I know from seeing Poem play live that their brand of progressive metal is far-reaching and ambitious. “Unique” is the Greek band’s third album. “False Morality”, like everything that follows it, is a complex compendium of progressive metal. The dark patterns belie the high pitch.. Read More
Vanora - Momentum (Crime Records)

Vanora – Momentum (Crime Records)

I’m not especially a fan of TesseracT or Meshuggah, who are quoted as a reference point for this band from Norway. I suppose it’s handy to have a reference point to attract potential interest, but what counts is the creativity of the band itself. Going.. Read More
Next to None – Phases (Inside Out)

Next to None – Phases (Inside Out)

I first came across Next to None this year when they accompanied Haken on tour. Loads of action and variety are what I remember about the performance of this band from USA. “Phases” is their second album. “Answer Me” sets us in the mood with.. Read More
Until Rain - Inure (Sensory Records)

Until Rain – Inure (Sensory Records)

This is Greek band Until Rain’s third album release as follow-up to “The Reign of Dreams” (2009) and “Anthem to Creation” (2013). My only encounter with the band was at ProgPower Europe in 2015. What I remember about that was an overwhelming display of soft.. Read More
GraVil – No More Forgiveness (S/R)

GraVil – No More Forgiveness (S/R)

I have vague recollections of this lot’s early demos passing through these parts for coverage on an earlier website around 2008-9. Even if not from the music the artwork and name certainly rang a bell but what was said and by who is long gone... Read More
Krysthla – Peace In Our Time (Initiate Audio)

Krysthla – Peace In Our Time (Initiate Audio)

The debut album by this Wellingborough based mob ‘A War Of Souls And Desires’ was a vicious S.O.B. make no mistake. Similarly when they tore things up at Bloodstock Festival in the Sophie Tent getting a pit full of ugly in the process, there was.. Read More

Replacire – Do Not Deviate (Season Of Mist)

Bringing a hybrid of progressive and technical death metal with copious amounts of fusion elements to it, Boston based Replacire are one of a multitude of bands out there who for, the next wave of technical based metal. Following up their 2012 debut “The Human.. Read More

The Senseless – The Buried Life (S/R)

It’s been a while since we last heard from Australian Sam Bean, in fact it was his appearance with London outfit The Antichrist Imperium that particularly caught our attention. As well as them and time in industrial grind bastards The Berzerker he is best known.. Read More
Disperse – Foreword (Season of Mist)

Disperse – Foreword (Season of Mist)

I know people who sing the praises of Polish progressive metal band Disperse. My own experience of them, which amounts to listening to one of their two previous albums “Living Mirrors” (2013) and a live performance, has been one of slight disappointment, caused by the.. Read More

Until the Uprising – Out of Time (Klonosphere)

These Frenchmen have been around since 2008, since then they have released an ep and two albums, including this one. Promoting their music as having different universes and styles, this to them seems to be a good thing. For me this was the source of.. Read More
