The Joy Thieves – Genocidal Love Song (Armalyte Industries)

I almost gave this one a pass as it is the second release by The Joy Thieves in a very short time and just a 4 track EP. There’s only so much you can say about a band no matter… Continue Reading →

Less Win – Given Light (Big Oil Recording Co)

History repeats itself. This is especially true in fashion and music. A new generation unearths something from the past that resonates with their thoughts and feelings, they give it a twist and add something of their own and then unleash… Continue Reading →

Okkultokrati – La Ilden Lyse (Southern Lord)

Norway’s Okkultokrati have been combining black metal, post punk and kraut rock together for over a decade, however, it’s arguably 2016’s ‘Raspberry Dawn’ that really thrust this unique mash up of genres into the spotlight (coincidentally this was also their… Continue Reading →

An Autumn For Crippled Children – All Fell Silent, Everything Went Quiet (Prosthetic)

An Autumn For Crippled Children are a true Marmite band. Despised by many as the epitome of the hipster assault on the TRVE and KVLT unholiness of Black Metal they are often the anonymous whipping boys on many a social… Continue Reading →

Fotocrime – South of Heaven (Profound Lore)

I had been looking forward to Fotocrime’s new album ever since it was announced. The band’s previous releases with their mixture of post punk, dark wave and goth rock were right up my alley, my favourite being the EP Always… Continue Reading →

Then Comes Silence – Machine (SPV)

Nothing melts my frozen heart as much as the current resurgence of Post Punk sounds. (You say post punk I still like to say Goth). With bands like Beastmilk and Publicist UK coming out of the dry ice in the… Continue Reading →

King Dude – Full Virgo Moon (Ván Records)

Across seven albums, spanning eight years, King Dude has explored every facet of folk, Americana and post punk. His eighth LP, ‘Full Virgo Moon’ feels like a return to the melancholy roots of his earliest releases ‘Tonight’s Special Death’ and… Continue Reading →

Ainsoph – Ω – V (Wolves Of Hades)

Not to be confused with the cult Italian industrial ambient outfit, this group are described as “shadowy wanderers’ from the Dutch underground. With a strong visual aesthetic looking at their promo pictures there is not much else to go on… Continue Reading →

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 →
