Old Man Wizard – Blame It All On Sorcery (S/R)

Old Man Wizard – Blame It All On Sorcery (S/R)

Old Man Wizard; well doesn’t that name conjure a few images? I expected a battering of down tuned guitars, sludge laden riffs, and a fog of THC fumes to come rolling out of the speakers, and indeed for the first few chords, that sounded like.. Read More
Boss Keloid - Melted On The Inch (Holy Roar)

Boss Keloid – Melted On The Inch (Holy Roar)

“You will be surprised by our next album mate! It Is NOTHING like anything else we have done. In fact, it is almost a 180 in comparison to Herb!” These were the words of Paul Swarbrick, guitarist and tone monster of Boss keloid, back at.. Read More
Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

The interesting thing about Norway’s Wobbler, whose fourth album this is, is that they push boundaries in the world of prog, yet their music is so recognisable. This, without doubt, is the charm of it. This prog that they peddle is of an older school.. Read More
Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Those who can make any money, let alone a living out of reviewing are few and far between. The majority of writers are folks like your humble scribe who happen to be fans and want to spread the word of what is good, and maybe.. Read More
Discipline – Captives of the Wine Dark Sea (The Laser's Edge)

Discipline – Captives of the Wine Dark Sea (The Laser’s Edge)

I’ll have to ‘fess up, that despite liking to intersperse my metal with a liberal helping of Prog, I’d never heard of Discipline until their new label The Laser’s Edge sent over ‘Captives of the Wine Dark Sea’ for review. This is despite the band.. Read More
Heavy Temple – Chassit (Van Records)

Heavy Temple – Chassit (Van Records)

There’s so much good music in the world, gems hidden in a sea of the bland and the bilious, and too little time to go looking for it (“first world problem”, as I believe the youngsters like to say.), which is why this reviewing lark.. Read More
White Willow – Future Hopes (The Laser's Edge)

White Willow – Future Hopes (The Laser’s Edge)

For those who want metal, metal, and nothing but metal, move along now; like the droids in Star Wars, these are not the songs you are looking for. Yes, I know some folks have tried to chisel in references to ambient black metal into their.. Read More
Edensong – Years In The Garden Of Years  (The Laser's Edge)

Edensong – Years In The Garden Of Years (The Laser’s Edge)

Cards on the table here folks, my next landmark birthday is 50, and it is far too few years ago for comfort, and for the best part of four decades, ever since first finding Cream’s ‘Goodbye’ in my mother’s record collection, hard rock, and then.. Read More
Shining (Nor) – International Black Jazz Society (Spinefarm)

Shining (Nor) – International Black Jazz Society (Spinefarm)

Those of us without a giddy disposition have possibly marvelled at a recent music video of Shining performing live at Trolltunga – The Devils Tongue which juts precariously off a mountain over a massive glaciated valley near Bergen Norway. It’s a real dizzying place to.. Read More
Northwinds -  Eternal Winter (Black Widow)

Northwinds – Eternal Winter (Black Widow)

Parisian doom devotees Northwinds proudly present this, their fifth full length studio album, complete with its typically beautiful album cover by Stefano Sugni. To briefly and dismissively label this band simply as `Doom’ however, does them a great injustice in my opinion. This band has.. Read More
District 97 -In Vaults (Laser's Edge)

District 97 -In Vaults (Laser’s Edge)

Chicago based progressive metal band District 97 have received critical acclaim for their work so far with members of/formerly of the likes of King Crimson, Asia, Transatlantic, Yes and Genesis all singing their praises along with Rolling Stone magazine throwing its weight behind them. With.. Read More
The Great Discord - Duende (Metal Blade)

The Great Discord – Duende (Metal Blade)

Hailing from Linköping, Sweden, The Great Discord are a rather interesting bunch. Influenced by classic prog like King Crimson and more contemporary artists such as Meshuggah and Dream Theater, the Swedish five piece have an album which touches on a fair few things both musically.. Read More
