The Atlas Moth – Coma Noir (Prosthetic Records)

The Atlas Moth – Coma Noir (Prosthetic Records)

The Atlas Moth. I had heard of the band before, but somehow, I’ve managed to fully ignore their music so far, even though the band is making the type of music that usually sparks my interest. Hailing from Chicago in the USA, The Atlas Moth.. Read More
Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

What happens when you stick a guy from Mastodon, a guy from Tool, a film animator/director and a couple of other talented musicians together? Now before you treat this as some poor effort at humour, it’s actually a legitimate question! Back in 2015, rumours of.. 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
Solar Sons – Retrograde Motion (S/R)

Solar Sons – Retrograde Motion (S/R)

Ladies and gents who may be reading this, let me advise you that if you are a fan of hard rock or metal, there is precious little reason to visit the former industrial powerhouse and now excluded candidate for European City of Culture that is.. Read More
Major Parkinson – Blackbox (Karisma)

Major Parkinson – Blackbox (Karisma)

Ground Control to Major Parkinson … actually, that’s not so inappropriate as “Blackbox” has a cosmic, cinematic feel. It is the Norwegian band’s fourth album, and comprises a collection of eerie sounds. It is the most experimental of experimental works. As the drum beats hypnotically,.. Read More
Fleurety – The White Death (Peaceville)

Fleurety – The White Death (Peaceville)

Bloody hell you wait 17 years for a Fleurety album and 2 come along in the space of months. Fair enough ‘Inquietum’ which you can read all about elsewhere on these pages is strictly a compilation featuring 4 singles released between 2009-2017 but ‘The White.. Read More
Sons Of Apollo - Psychotic Symphony (Inside Out)

Sons Of Apollo – Psychotic Symphony (Inside Out)

Inside Out is a label renowned for housing progressive metal powerhouses and titans in the genre when it comes to complex performances, convoluted compositions and individual brilliance on the virtuoso level… Basically if you’re good at what you do in the realms of prog, you.. Read More
Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere (Karisma Records)

The interesting thing about Norway’s Wobbler, whose fourth album this is, is that they push boundaries in the world of prog, yet their music is so recognisable. This, without doubt, is the charm of it. This prog that they peddle is of an older school.. 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
Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Those who can make any money, let alone a living out of reviewing are few and far between. The majority of writers are folks like your humble scribe who happen to be fans and want to spread the word of what is good, and maybe.. Read More
Poseidon – Prologue  (Ripple Music)

Poseidon – Prologue (Ripple Music)

If you’re not yet familiar with Poseidon, then I think it is time you changed that, and ‘Prologue’ may well be the album to help you. Developing from the single track ‘Omega’ that was released over a year ago, the band have clearly been away,.. Read More
Discipline – Captives of the Wine Dark Sea (The Laser's Edge)

Discipline – Captives of the Wine Dark Sea (The Laser’s Edge)

I’ll have to ‘fess up, that despite liking to intersperse my metal with a liberal helping of Prog, I’d never heard of Discipline until their new label The Laser’s Edge sent over ‘Captives of the Wine Dark Sea’ for review. This is despite the band.. Read More
