Henry Kane – Age of the Idiot (Transcending Obscurity)

I reviewed Henry Kane’s (actually, the grind alias of Death Metal royalty Jonny Petersson) last album for this very publication, giving it a 7/10, though with more repeated listens, I should have awarded it an 8, as several of the… Continue Reading →
