Taina – Seelenfresser (Viy Records)

There is a train of thought that suggests that Germans are incredibly efficient. Taina clearly missed that meeting, as it’s taken roughly 8 years to release their debut album. Formed in 2010 by vocalist/synth player WoLand and guitarist SerZh the… Continue Reading →

Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

New types of music are needed even if they hark back to the past, synthwave is officially a thing now and boy is it big. If you grew up on a diet of horror, action and post-apocalyptic films many of… Continue Reading →

Marc Heal – The Hum (Armalyte Industries)

Ah Cubanate, remember them well. I still have 1st of the four albums they released Antimatter (1993) knocking around on cassette and caught them live on quite a few occasions. If their music doesn’t stick around particularly in your memory,… Continue Reading →

Dawn Of Ashes – Theophany (Metropolis)

My first mission in regards to this album was figuring out who actually plays on it. Has the band reformed, as they had apparently disbanded a couple years ago, or is it a solo album by vocalist Kristof Bathory with… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Die Krupps – V Metal Machine Music (SPV)

Considering these Germans industrialists have been around since 1980, actual studio albums are quite a rare occurrence for them. Sure there have been stacks of releases such as singles, EP’s, compilations and anthologies such as the excellent 2007 Too Much… Continue Reading →

Primitive Race – S/T (Metropolis Music)

I had a primitive race once; kid at infant school tripped me over and broke my egg so I battered him round the head with my wooden spoon. The judge said as I was in my 20’s this was particularly… Continue Reading →

PreEmptive Strike 0.1 – Pierce Their Husks (Sonic Hell Records)

Warning, rampaging insects invading the cyber industrial zone! It would appear that PreEmptive Strike 0.1 have a bit of an infatuation with the Robert Heinlein penned classic Starship Troopers. It could be this or any other 50s B Movie feature… Continue Reading →

Revolting Cocks – Live! You Goddamned Son Of a Bitch (Wienerworld)

As far as I am concerned this is absolutely a seminal live album and one that’s up there alongside Ministry ‘In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up.’ There are quite a few parallels between the two, as line ups… Continue Reading →

Cult Ov Mora – Is Coming (SR)

Only forming late 2013 this is the first offering from a very new Polish cult. They stem from a former melodic black metal band called Hegeroth who reached demo stage but never really seemed to take off beyond this. Looking… Continue Reading →

Crematory – Antiserum (SPV)

I had a preview of this album with last year’s single release of the bouncy and anthemic “Shadowmaker”, which features on this album. It mixes Crematory’s melodic gothic metal style, which they’ve been perfecting over 23 years, with a strong… Continue Reading →

Aesthetic Perfection – Til Death (Metropolis)

I have seen the name of this lot plenty of times as far as on the live front is concerned and indeed note they have a headlining show at the London Underworld on the 20th of February with Faderhead. Plug… Continue Reading →
