Lunden – S/T (Abstract Tits)

Childish or not, one is always going to throw the words Abstract Tits into an Internet image search and see what artistic results it comes up with. Quite disappointing really but the label in question are apparently Danish and have… Continue Reading →

Membrane – Burn Your Bridges (Atypeek Music)

What’s with that bird on the cover? Is this a picture of some kind of ritual I’m not aware of, or is it just a picture of a dead bird? Also, why is the bird placed on someone’s bound-together feet?… Continue Reading →

Arabrot – Who Do You Love (Pelagic)

If you like your music weird and unusual, your lyrics heavy with meaning and full of all sorts of connotations and connections, if you are fascinated by all things strange and bored by everything conventional, then Arabrot’s new album Who… Continue Reading →

Throat – Bareback (Svart)

Probably since the time of hunter-gatherers to expose your back has meant to make yourself vulnerable or to take a risk. The connection of an exposed back and vulnerability is so long-standing, that is has entered set phrases and idioms…. Continue Reading →

With a discography that spans 87 releases across 25 years, Japan’s Boris are currently one of the most prolific hard working bands within noise rock, reaching an international audience and standing alongside underground heavyweights such as Sunn O))) and Earth…. Continue Reading →

Aluk Todolo – Voix (Norma Evangelium Diaboli)

Oh I see what you did there, naming an instrumental album ‘Voices,’ very clever but not sure about calling yourself an occult rock band when there are no spells being incanted verbally. Mind you there is plenty going on musically… Continue Reading →

KEN mode – Success (Season Of Mist)

So I just got back in the saddle with reviewing, and I thought I would jump straight in the deep end. So I asked to review this band “KEN mode”, mainly on the basis that I have never heard them… Continue Reading →

Pord – Wild (Solar Flare)

Wondering just how to start this review I went for the tried and tested look up the band name and see if other than as a moniker it has any real meaning and discovered that according to Urban Dictionary it… Continue Reading →

Red Kunz – Teeth, Hair & Skin (Hummus Records)

I do like many of the releases that appear on underground independent labels, often run by bands themselves and Hummus records is very much like that. This promo I received is different, not a digital download, preferred by labels these… Continue Reading →
