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 →

Crematory – Shadowmaker (SPV)

There’s something simplistic about Crematory’s music. I guess the fact that their music is so approachable is why they’ve released ten albums, can call themselves “Germany’s leading gothic metal band” and why “Revolution” (2004) is a favourite in my collection…. Continue Reading →

Hocico – El Último Minuto (Out Of Line)

8th Sin – Cosmogenesis (Soulseller)

Apparently this album has taken eight years too get to this stage, due too various members touring duties and such, and completes the third part of a trilogy with which I have no previous acquaintance. So starting from the top… Continue Reading →

Paresis – Last Shadow (Armalyte)

It’s good when a musician is fed up of what he’s listening to and does something about it, so hats off to Mr Simon Fuller a.k.a. Paresis. He describes his project as follows: “Paresis combines ‘industrial’ in the loosest possible… Continue Reading →

Suicide Commando – Attention Whore (Out Of Line)

Attention Whore! Sorry must stop talking to our readers like that. Nope in all seriousness what we have here is a new and apparently strictly limited single from Belgium EBM outfit Suicide Commando. Of course being of the electro persuasion… Continue Reading →
