The Wraith – Gloom Ballet (Southern Lord)

The holiday season is approaching, and The Wraith from Los Angeles with one Brit among them are evoking some ghosts of the past in good old British Christmas tradition fashion. Settled somewhere between goth rock, punk and post-punk Gloom Ballet… Continue Reading →

Asphodèle – Jours Pâles (Ladlo Productions)

The flowers of Asphodèle may have only just bloomed but one look at the cast list of this brand-new French band was all I needed to grab the album and put it on my review pile. For a start we… Continue Reading →

Cold In Berlin – Rituals Of Surrender (New Heavy Sounds)

Some bands have a special quality. Maybe it’s a unique sound or look while for others it might simply be an aura. For some years I’ve been intrigued by Cold In Berlin after seeing them at Candlefest in London’s Underworld… Continue Reading →

Wires & Lights – A Chasm Here And Now (SPV)

Wires & Lights are a relatively new band from Berlin, Germany, and the album at hand, A Chasm Here And Now, is their first long player. What’s it like? Well, the press info is all in superlatives. And no, that’s… Continue Reading →

Silence In The Snow – Levitation Chamber (Prophecy)

After being the equivalent of a persona non grata for quite some time, goth rock seems to be having a revival at the moment. That’s fine with me, because I like goth rock. New bands from the US seem to… Continue Reading →

Membranes – What Nature Gives… Nature Takes Away (Cherry Red Records)

The Membranes had always been on my peripheral vision and having been around since 1977 well they should have been. However after seeing them a couple of years back supporting Killing Joke founding member and Louder Than War head honcho… 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 →

Hipoxia – Rvinae Ira, Creans Rvina Eo Tempore Est – Monvmentvm ab Khaos II (The Way Of The Hermit)

Blimey that’s a mouthful of a title and we haven’t even heard part 1. Luckily that does not seem to have mattered for the task at hand and first impressions of this Spanish group have been more than favourable. No… Continue Reading →

Clone Culture – S/T (Lifeforce Records)

I hadn’t realised that Milan was one of the epicentres of post punk and dark wave in the 1980s until I read the attachment that came with this. Well they recognise Joy Division and The Cure, and having heard this… Continue Reading →

Evil Blizzard – The Worst Show On Earth (Crackedankles Records)

Straight outta Preston we have a gang of horror show freaks here who have been causing a bit of a stir. People in the know have mentioned Evil Blizzard to me in the past and told me I should check… Continue Reading →
