Hocico – Artificial Extinction (Out Of Line)

Back in the early 90s I was kind of isolated, walled in by the twin guard dogs of little if any money and pernicious mental health issues. Whilst I maintained a toe hold in my constant metal world, for reasons… Continue Reading →

Camilla Sparksss – Brutal (On The Camper Records)

Sometimes we get some really leftfield curveball discs sent in to review and whereas if they are digital downloads and we can press delete and think, not for us, we do try our best. This is one such example and… Continue Reading →

Moto Toscana – Self Titled (Tonzonen Records)

Moto Toscana is a trio with four strings and a drum kit between them.  Is less more?  The fact that Andy (vox) Michi (distorted bass) and Chrisch (Drums) describe themselves as Sludgefunk/Disco Doom piqued my interest. Add into that their claim –… Continue Reading →

Charming Timur – So Far, So Good (S/R)

When I was about 21 or 22 years old, I was good friends with two guys of about the same age whose idea of a good time was to go to a video store and rent the stupidest video they… Continue Reading →

Scott Ian – Access All Areas; Hard Rock Road Stories (De Capo Press)

You should know who Scott Ian is, if you don’t then just click back on your browser and read a different article on this lovely website… Or maybe google/youtube him and educate yourself. For those who are more knowledgeable, please… Continue Reading →

The Dark Red Seed – Stands with Death (Prophecy Productions)

Since 3Teeth blew my mind, soul and body live in 2015, I’ve become something of an obsessive. Their take on early-mid nineties style industrial harkens back to the machine spirit of classic Ministry, alien soundscapes of Skinny Puppy and the… Continue Reading →

Interview – Aborym

Italian act Aborym have had an interesting and shape-shifting career path since they first appeared in the early 90’s. Led by the innovative maestro Fabban the band’s music and line-up has considerably diversified from early industrial black metal roots to… Continue Reading →

Aborym – SHIFTING.negative (Agonia)

Italian based act Aborym have always been an intriguing band and with their first few albums explored a terrain that mixed black metal with harsh industrial and electronic tones in a way that was not too dissimilar to artists such… Continue Reading →

It’s Everyone Else – Heaven Is An Empty Room (Noise Appeal Records)

Hailing from Ljubljana in Slovenia the duo of Pika Golob and Lucijan Prelog describe themselves as “Too hardcore for the electro kids, too electro for the hardcore kids.” This may prove a bit of a quandary for some listeners but… Continue Reading →

Dawn Of Ashes – Theophany (Metropolis)

My first mission in regards to this album was figuring out who actually plays on it. Has the band reformed, as they had apparently disbanded a couple years ago, or is it a solo album by vocalist Kristof Bathory with… Continue Reading →

American Head Charge – Tango Umbrella (Napalm)

From their pseudo-industrial beginnings, American Head Charge have always been an intense bunch. Billed as part of the Nu-Metal wave which swamped the early 2000’s with their second album, “The War Of Art” which was produced by legendary producer Rick… Continue Reading →
