Long Distance Calling – Boundless (InsideOut)

Long Distance Calling – Boundless (InsideOut)

The main subject in the paintings of 19th century German painter Casper David Friedrich is nature. If the paintings feature people, they are portrayed with their backs towards the viewer. The people appear to be contemplating nature, its vastness, its force, the decay of man-made.. Read More
Onyric Joy – Tales From The First Light (MMMmusic)

Onyric Joy – Tales From The First Light (MMMmusic)

As ever, one of the great joys of this reviewing lark is hearing bands that I’d be unlikely to encounter with my normal random sweeps though the potential musical goldmine that is the internet, and having recently had helpings of Prog from France, Austria, and.. Read More
Aerolith – Aerolith & Aerolith II (Jumping High Records)

Aerolith – Aerolith & Aerolith II (Jumping High Records)

So, what is Aerolith? Care of my very amateur science background, without having to looking it up I know it’s a form of meteorite, mainly of a rocky composition. It’s also, therefore, a very appropriate name for a self-defined space-rock band, in this case an.. Read More
Deconstructing Sequence - Cosmic Progression: An Agonizing Journey Through Oddities of Space (S/R)

Deconstructing Sequence – Cosmic Progression: An Agonizing Journey Through Oddities of Space (S/R)

This is extreme progressive art, a combination of extreme metal, progressive, avant-garde and post rock music. Deconstructing Sequence fell out of the ashes of the black metal band Northwail. The title is grandiose. So is the energy-charged start which soars through the roof and sounds.. Read More
Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Subtle flavours are what I experienced on Slowrun’s albums “Prologue” and “Resonance”. Now, two years on, the Finnish instrumental band has released this EP in which to weave their ambient magic. The first of the two tracks takes us immediately into a dreamworld, almost akin.. Read More
Collapse Under the Empire – The Fallen Ones (Finaltune Records)

Collapse Under the Empire – The Fallen Ones (Finaltune Records)

We are gently led into an epic soundscape. This is the duo’s sixth album of electronic post rock. The mere title “The Fallen Ones” suggests gloom and melancholy but whilst the title track has a sultry air, the progression is calming and lush. The post.. Read More
The Kahless Clone - Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

The Kahless Clone – Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

For some reason the last couple of November’s Doom albums didn’t seem to hit our radar, shame as I have always quite liked the band ‘The Pale Haunt Departure’ 2005 being a particular favourite. The reason I am mentioning this is that guitarist Vito Marchese.. Read More
Upcdownc – I, Awake (S/R)

Upcdownc – I, Awake (S/R)

As an accompaniment, I was invited to listen to the Shogun Assassin soundtrack, which is cited as an influence on this album. This edgy soundtrack is of fear, possession and revenge. So too fear, sleep, dreams and nightmares are integral to this work. “I, Awake”.. Read More
Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

If you’ve ever read some of my inane scribblings, you’ll know I’m not at adverse to firing the occasional barb in the direction of the grim, kvlt mob who like to apply corpse paint and scream, and as such it’s a real surprise that I.. Read More
Black Mare – Death Magick Mother (Magic Bullet)

Black Mare – Death Magick Mother (Magic Bullet)

Ides of Gemini’s Sera Timms takes her musical output from that of the voluminous and co-created to the hypnotic solo dissonance of Black Mare. ‘Death Magick Mother’ is the second album of this project, mixed by Drab Majesty’s Andrew Clinco. Whereas debut album ‘Field of.. Read More
Timeworn – Venomous High (S/R)

Timeworn – Venomous High (S/R)

My interest was aroused immediately when a melodic beat, accompanied by a strange and deep chorus, blended into an explosion of heaviness. The rumbling beat and progressive post metal thunder continue. From this opening it would seem that Norwegian band Timeworn do not worry about.. Read More
Sleepmakeswaves – Made of Breath Only (Pelagic)

Sleepmakeswaves – Made of Breath Only (Pelagic)

It’s a strange thing when an intro is followed by what seems to be another intro. This is Australian post rock band Sleepmakeswaves, and this is their third album. Admittedly the second intro, an instrumental called “Worlds Away” livens up to the extent that there.. Read More
