Charun – Mundus Cereris (Third I Rex)

Charun – Mundus Cereris (Third I Rex)

Sardinian band Charun, not to be confused with Finland’s Charon, are a post rock band. The fact that Isis’s James Plotkin mastered this album says much. After getting us firmly into the groove with a swampy start, “Malacoda” sends us into epic and emotional worlds.. Read More
Long Distance Calling - Vienna, B72, 9/3/2018

Long Distance Calling – Vienna, B72, 9/3/2018

One of the most impressive things here is public transport. It is incredibly well organized, it will virtually get you everywhere and it isn’t expensive. You can buy a ticket for 24, 48, or 72 hours and ride anywhere and as long as you want... Read More

Insect Ark - Marrow Hymns (Profound Lore Records)

Insect Ark – Marrow Hymns (Profound Lore Records)

The cover of Insect Ark’s new album Marrow Hymns features a phoenix, the mythical bird that is cyclically reborn. It is not a victorious image, not one that usually comes to mind when the phrase “to rise from the ashes like a phoenix“  is used... Read More
Long Distance Calling – Boundless (InsideOut)

Long Distance Calling – Boundless (InsideOut)

The main subject in the paintings of 19th century German painter Casper David Friedrich is nature. If the paintings feature people, they are portrayed with their backs towards the viewer. The people appear to be contemplating nature, its vastness, its force, the decay of man-made.. Read More
Aerolith – Aerolith & Aerolith II (Jumping High Records)

Aerolith – Aerolith & Aerolith II (Jumping High Records)

So, what is Aerolith? Care of my very amateur science background, without having to looking it up I know it’s a form of meteorite, mainly of a rocky composition. It’s also, therefore, a very appropriate name for a self-defined space-rock band, in this case an.. Read More
Interview- Clouds Taste Satanic

Interview- Clouds Taste Satanic

If any readers have had the misfortune to read my reviews on a regular basis, you may have noticed that for the last few years I’ve been lucky enough to be chosen to review the music of Brooklyn’s instrumental self-described “Satanic Stoner Demonic Doom” act.. Read More
Milkilo - Atlas (Vox Project)

Milkilo – Atlas (Vox Project)

This intriguing-sounding album is in fact this French bass and drum noise duo’s first, but having been around for seven years they have been honing their ideas, touring and releasing a trio of EPs. I don’t know at what point this band started but what.. Read More
Les Lekin – Died With Fear (Tonzonen Records)

Les Lekin – Died With Fear (Tonzonen Records)

“Les Lekin”? Well, that had me confused from the start. Say the name with a Gallic accent, and it’s “Les Lekin”, an existentialist philosophical movement of fey Gauloise smoking intellectuals; pronounce it with a bit of Mancunian, and it’s “Les Lekin”, bitter drinking legendary fly.. Read More
Lento – Fourth (Consouling Sounds)

Lento – Fourth (Consouling Sounds)

Thunderously industrial sounds resonate. An alarm is going. I think Lento are telling us that they’re very heavy. This band from Rome promises us a mesmerising, apocalyptic and mystical journey with their fourth album. There is no time for breath to be taken. Wave upon.. Read More
Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Subtle flavours are what I experienced on Slowrun’s albums “Prologue” and “Resonance”. Now, two years on, the Finnish instrumental band has released this EP in which to weave their ambient magic. The first of the two tracks takes us immediately into a dreamworld, almost akin.. Read More
