Octopus – Supernatural Alliance (Rise Above)

In the words of founding member J Frezzato (formerly of Electric Six), Octopus is an underground, psychedelic rock beast which ‘just is’ for lack of a better and more accurate description. It doesn’t ‘conform’ to the millions of sub-genres, nor the widely accepted approaches many.. Read More

The Shadow Lizzards – S/T (Tonzonen Records)

This power vintage rock trio from Germany sound like they’ve been soaked in the music of their forebears. They pull together the laconic rhythms of Creedence Clearwater Revival, the smothering solos of B.B. King and Hendrix and blend it with the spine-tingling dramatics of The.. Read More

Cruthu – The Angle Of Eternity (Church Within)

Here’s one of those rarities in reviewing for an underground site, a band I’ve actually heard of, heard, and have music from. That may sound weird, but exploring the unknown and bringing it towards, if not into, the light is how we roll at Ave.. 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

The Atomic Bitchwax – Force Field (Tee Pee)

Night Viper - Exterminator (Listenable Records)

Night Viper – Exterminator (Listenable Records)

Album number 2 from Sweden’s Night Viper picks up with the energy of the debut with ‘No Escape’, sometimes verging into a thrash spectrum, and then as the album progresses to the expected traditional metal, often in a rock n roll style. The first few.. Read More
