Pyramido – Fem (The Sign Records)

Fem – Swedish for 5, is the Malmo quintet’s 5th album. High fives all round! These chaps mix dreamy shoegaze atmospheres with uplifting doom and tortured sludge vocals. So far up my alley I need a proctologist to extract it! First… Continue Reading →

Cave In – Final Transmission (Hydra Head)

Cave In are one of those bands that have managed to divide and confound opinion over the course of their almost 25 years existence as a band from both positive and negative perspectives. With feet in numerous camps from a… Continue Reading →

Numenorean – Adore (Season Of Mist)

Numenoreans are folk of Numenroea – an island in Middle Earth where lived the greatest of men. Yup more Tolkien in metal.  Here though Numenorean are a post (ish) Black Metal band from Calgary. Their debut “Home” in 2016 was a collection… 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 →

Interview – The Ocean

Robin Staps (guitar, primary songwriter) and Paul Seidel (drums), Zagreb, 17/11/2018 The 17th of November was one of the first really cold days in Zagreb this autumn. At six o’clock in the evening, the arranged interview time, it was already… Continue Reading →

Row Of Ashes – Let The Long Night Fade (Third I Rex)

All Pigs Must Die – Hostage Animal (Southern Lord)

For those unfamiliar with this act it contains a raft of notable personnel, namely Ben Koller (Converge), Matt Woods and Adam Wentworth (Bloodhorse), Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy) and Brian Izzi (Trap Them). I have skirted the fringes of All… Continue Reading →

Complete Failure – Cross Burner (Season Of Mist)

If any of you listened to this US bands self-released “The Art Gospel of Aggravated Assault” from 2012 then you know that that release is one of the most violent grindcore albums you heard during that year and even now… Continue Reading →

Impure Wilhelmina – Radiation (Season of Mist)

Well, these guys have come out of nowhere (after five previous albums, I must add) with a bit of a gem here for anyone who’s into the whole post-hardcore melancholy vibe and vocals powerful enough to cause a higher-level stratospheric… Continue Reading →

Membrane – Reflect Your Pain (Atypeek Music)

“Membrane make a living from working with noise”. And some noise it is. The French band’s fifth album is not the sort of ambient soundscape where figures emerge unexpectedly out of gloomy shadows, but a crashing world of reverberating sounds,… Continue Reading →
