Mörglbl – The Tale Of Scott Rötti (Lasers Edge)

Mörglbl are a rather interesting musical entity. The predominantly instrumental three piece are heavily rooted in the realms of progressive metal, and from there, they add plenty of jazz and fusion elements to their sound, giving an end result which… Continue Reading →

DRH – Thin Ice (Apathia Records)

“Follow the white rabbit”, we’re told. Well, maybe we should but for sure we’re taken on a journey through a strange Wonderland here on this experimental saxophone-driven jazz prog collection from French quartet DRH. Sometimes it’s good not to have… Continue Reading →

Spaceslug – Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Poland’s Spaceslug are a busy band. Their universe started to come together in 2015 but the big bang happened for them with debut LP “Lemanis” in 2016 and follow up, “Time Travel Dilemma” one year later. Punctuated by an EP… Continue Reading →

Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

What happens when you stick a guy from Mastodon, a guy from Tool, a film animator/director and a couple of other talented musicians together? Now before you treat this as some poor effort at humour, it’s actually a legitimate question!… Continue Reading →

Daydream XI – Circus Of The Tattered And Torn (Sensory)

Progressive Metal and concept albums go hand in hand, much like those released in the 60’s and 70’s in the realms of the Prog Rock genre. Artistic licence to create long, convoluted and ‘deep’ stories which are conveyed through the… Continue Reading →

Blizaro – Cornucopia della Morte (I,Voidhanger)

“Cornucopia della Morte” finally sees the light of day having been put together in 2013 but kept on ice while its’ mastermind, John Gallo pursued solo interests. The wait has been well worth it too because Blizaro’s second full length… Continue Reading →

Britney – Britn3y (Superstar Destroyer Records)

Warning, this Scottish trio of noiseniks are seriously whacky! They seem to want to be hidden by search engines between the thighs of Ms Spears and have a serious affiliation to all things beefy. This, their cunningly entitled 3rd release… Continue Reading →

Chron Goblin – Backwater (Ripple)

Calgary’s Chron Goblin are new to me. Straight up, I’m pretty impressed. Their third album, “Backwater” has got me very interested. The current crop of good old fashioned, riff-fuelled groove rockers is strong. There’s plenty in the music press highlighting… Continue Reading →

Space Fisters – Vol. 1 (S/R)

Okay, I’ll admit it was the name that first got me interested in this band. As you might imagine the “Space” part whetted my appetite for a bit of intergalactic rock in the fine tradition of Hawkwind, but really, “Fisters”?… Continue Reading →
