Pyre of Descent – Peaks Of Eternal Light (Terror From Hell Records)

Hailing from Berlin, Pyre of Descent are a band that have flown under the radar of this particular scribe, their eponymous 2018 release now being followed by ‘Peaks Of Eternal Light’. A combination of the band name, upbeat album title,… Continue Reading →

Today Is The Day – No Good To Anyone (BMG)

It’s rare thing indeed, that a band manage to sustain themselves for eleven albums. It’s a back catalogue achievement that is usually reserved for stadium bothering behemoths such as U2, The Rolling Stones and Green Day and whilst those band… Continue Reading →

Interview – Cybernetic Witch Cult

There are some incredibly inventive bands out there that seem to be overlooked by a mass media that laps up a non stop stream of reality show karaoke stars and massively over produced and interchangeable manufactured “idols”; as a visitor… Continue Reading →

Golden Legacy – II (S/R)

Blimey I thought I had been transported back in time to a John Peel radio session from the mid-80’s on first giving this a listen. Talk about the most girlie vocals I have heard in many a year. Sugar coated,… Continue Reading →

Blut aus Nord – Hallucinogen (Debemur Morti)

What to say, when everything has already been said? I’m a bit late reviewing this. Everybody else has already done it, it seems. It’s quite a challenge, therefore, to find something original and new to say. But I’ll certainly try…. Continue Reading →

Blackwater Holylight – Veils of Winter (Riding Easy Records)

My initial reaction on seeing this band’s name was Blackwater Park. The band’s take on their name, which I have to say carries more authority than my reaction, is that it’s about contrasts: “heavy, psychedelic, pop, shoegaze, doom, grunge, melodic… Continue Reading →
