Crowhurst – III (Prophecy Productions)

Better known for his immersive live solo performances that defy genre, and releases titled ‘Fuck You Morrissey’ and ‘Fuck You Bono’ (just two of the records from his 75 strong back catalogue), Jay Gambit is prolific within the noise scene…. Continue Reading →

Bellrope – You Must relax (Exile On Mainstream)

Aaaaaargh! Sometimes you need a little petrol thrown on a fire. Bellrope who rose from the ashes of Black Shape of Nexus (yeah I stole that from the PR blurb –fight me!) are dropping their debut “You Must Relax”. They… Continue Reading →

Pando – Hiraeth (Aesthetic Death)

“Writing about music is like dancing about architecture” . A quote often attributed to Frank Zappa but possibly actually said by someone called Martin Mull. Whoever said it – if anyone did at all is moot. For once it feels… Continue Reading →

Abattoir / Satori – Megaloschemos (Gradual Hate Records)

This arrived, I listened one evening and had nightmares. The next morning I got up, played it again and had daymares! Yep this is scary stuff. Megaloschemos is the ‘great scheme’ of two gents, one Dave Kirby of Satori from… Continue Reading →

Svin – Virgin Cuts (Mom Eat Dad Records)

There’s experimental and there’s experimental. I read that “Virgin Cuts”, the band’s fifth album, “leads the listener into a sonic loophole between noise-infested rock, droney landscapes, new age minimalism and dusty afro-tripping”. Sure enough, although each of these strange pieces… Continue Reading →

VOR – Depravador (Third I Rex)

Vor? What is it good for? Quite a lot actually! A lot of the time when a release purporting to be “sludge” hits my inbox or doormat I am dismayed. Usually folks are so busy with the big riffs and… Continue Reading →

End Christian – Bach part One (Translation Loss / Internet & Weed / Corpse Flower Records)

Trip Hop is a funny beast. As sludge is to NOLA the heady mix of rhythmic dance, hip hop and electronica slithered from Bristol in the 90’s. How strange to hear it’s influence so heavy in End Christian. This is… Continue Reading →

Al Ard – S/T (Code666)

Experimentation has been present in music since its inception, it helps genres to grow, develop, change and evolve over the course of time for better or for worse. Metal has an ability to soak up history’s musical evolution and vomit… Continue Reading →

The Body & Uniform – Mental Wounds Not Healing (Sacred Bones)

It’s been less than a month since the release of The Body’s ‘I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer’ and the Rhode Island duo are back again, this time for a collaborative release with electro punk pairing… Continue Reading →

Blitzkrieg Baby – War Gods (Beläten)

I had been waiting on this to leave a foul taste in my ears and this “little ray of sunshine” is certainly doing so as I sit hear listening to it, sweating from the hottest day of the year whilst… Continue Reading →

Vampillia – Happiness Brought by Endless Sorrow (Temple of Torturous)

Almost every band has a one sheet info accompanying their release, giving you some basics about themselves and their album. That’s the golden standard. Apart from that, there are two extremes. Some releases have press info sheets that are so… Continue Reading →

Serum Dreg – Lustful Vengeance (Invictus Productions)

Serum Dreg sounds like an anagram to me. I can see murder and greed in there. The reality is that this debut from the US black metallers concentrates on the worship of sex, hedonism and ritualistic chaos. The fact that… Continue Reading →
