Tottumiskysymys – s/t (NCTMMRN)

This is the sort of thing that excites me. Yes, I probably should be admitted to a lunatic asylum but my excitement in this case does not come from the number of consecutive consonants in the band and album name,… Continue Reading →

Drose – Boy Man Machine+ (Computer Students)

Everything about this release has been meticulously thought about, the minutiae of detail is formidable to the point of being pedantic but for a geek like me it was extremely well appreciated and admirable. The whole double vinyl package is… Continue Reading →

Petbrick I (Rocket Recordings)

My expectation of this album by the duo called Petbrick was of something electronic and industrial. But there’s talk too of punk attitudes and experimentation, so maybe my expectation was off the mark. The duo in question are Wayne Adams… Continue Reading →

Trrma Charlemagne Palestine – Sssseegmmeentss Frooom Baaari (Becoq Records)

Pardon, did I stutter? Errr, well it would have been far simpler to simply write politely whence this CD came from and said thanks but no thanks it isn’t really for us but then in doing so I would have… Continue Reading →

Psicopompo – Seven Sermons In Stone (Alien Passengers)

Delving right into the experimental underground it would not be surprising if Psicopompo was a completely new name to you as it was to me when I was asked to cover their new release ‘Seven Sermons In Stone.’ This invitation… Continue Reading →

Paolo Spaccamonti – Volume Quattro (Escape from Today)

The sleeve’s artwork tells us everything we need to know here. Paolo Spaccamonti is known as a film score composer and avant-garde musician, so I was on alert for something artistic, different and creative. The eleven pieces take us to… Continue Reading →

MMMD – Egoismo (Antifrost)

MMMΔ, aka MMMD aka Mohammad, now we have that out the way we can begin. Are you sitting comfortably? Well you won’t be for long and going to the toilet and ridding thyself of any excess waste is advisable before… Continue Reading →

Pando – Negligible Senescence (Aesthetic Death)

Last year I reviewed Hiraeth by Pando. I say review. What I actually did was try and convey how the madness that Adam Bryant and Matt Gagne made me feel.  These two artists are genre fluid and combine field recordings, conversations,… Continue Reading →

LINGUA IGNOTA – Caligula (Profound Lore)

LINGUA IGNOTA’s album All Bitches Die left a huge impression on me. Had I reviewed it, I would have given it the full mark. 10/10. Why? Because finally. Finally, there was a woman in extreme music fighting back against misogyny… Continue Reading →

Sunn O))) – Life Metal (Southern Lord)

Sonic titans Sunn O))) return with their ninth full length album (the first of two due to be released this year) and the first album they’ve produced with Anderson and O’Malley as sole composers since the release of 2015’s ‘Kannon’… Continue Reading →

Lice – Woe Betide You (Season Of Mist)

Black Metal has a way of worming its way into all manner of other subgenres, almost unlike any other Metal subgenre. I’ve seen Blackened Hardcore, Black Noise, Blackgaze Post-Black Metal the list is frankly endless. I think in part this… Continue Reading →

PoiL – Sus (Dur et Doux)

If you’re looking for normality, this is not the place to come. When I read that inspiration came from “Stockhausen Stimmung on a mushroom trip”, I knew it was game on. “Sus” is a lot of bizarre sounds, fundamentally. The… Continue Reading →
