Author & Punisher – Beastland (Relapse)

The phrase “industrial” when used in the context of music has always been one that has conjured images of cyber goths with plastic dreadlocks stomping along to the likes of Combichrist. Even the grittiness that lies within the heaviest moments… Continue Reading →

Phal:Angst – Phase IV (Bloodshed666 Records)

I wonder if the group’s name was inspired from suddenly realising the curry they had eaten was too hot hmmm. Anyway joking aside Phal:Angst hail from Vienna and play a mix of industrial and post rock which is very much… Continue Reading →

Svin – Virgin Cuts (Mom Eat Dad Records)

There’s experimental and there’s experimental. I read that “Virgin Cuts”, the band’s fifth album, “leads the listener into a sonic loophole between noise-infested rock, droney landscapes, new age minimalism and dusty afro-tripping”. Sure enough, although each of these strange pieces… Continue Reading →

Interview – Manes

Norwegian band Manes recently released “Slow Motion Death Sequence”, their fifth album. This is a band which has experienced various transformations and name changes since 1991, but whose music has always been unusual and on the edge. To find out… Continue Reading →

Master Boot Record – Direct Memory Access (Blood Music)

Fleurety – The White Death (Peaceville)

Bloody hell you wait 17 years for a Fleurety album and 2 come along in the space of months. Fair enough ‘Inquietum’ which you can read all about elsewhere on these pages is strictly a compilation featuring 4 singles released… Continue Reading →

Collapse Under the Empire – The Fallen Ones (Finaltune Records)

We are gently led into an epic soundscape. This is the duo’s sixth album of electronic post rock. The mere title “The Fallen Ones” suggests gloom and melancholy but whilst the title track has a sultry air, the progression is… Continue Reading →

Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

‘Overland’ is the eighth full-length release from electronic duo Necro Deathmort, and their first on Profound Lore. The pairing have kept themselves busy over the last decade; as well as creating their own dynamic layers of sound, they have produced… Continue Reading →

BardSpec – Hydrogen (By Norse)

The name will be familiar to many. It’s Ivar Bjørnson of Enslaved. Inspired by trance-inducing ambiance, he formed his own project BardSpec and, to quote the publicity, “combines stirring, hallucinatory synth-sounds with mercurial guitar effects and hypnotic rhythms that navigate… Continue Reading →
