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… Continue Reading →

Spiritual Front – Amour Braque (Prophecy Productions)

Undoubtedly, Spiritual Front is one of the most interesting bands coming forth from the neofolk scene. Originally starting as a solo project, the band around Simone Salvatori has broadened its horizon over the years, expanding its sound with elements of… Continue Reading →

Death Alley – Superbia (Century Media)

Retro rock is being churned out like seaside rock in a sweetie factory in mainland Europe these days. It just depends whether Sabbath or Jefferson Airplane is written through the middle.  It either floats your tie dyed boat or it doesn’t…. Continue Reading →

Road To Jerusalem – ST (ViciSolum)

When you have a group which consists of musicians who have been a part of notable bands in the death metal realms like The Haunted, Scar Symmetry, Soilwork, Hypocrisy, Invocator and Konkhra, you would be forgiven for making the logical… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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!… Continue Reading →

The Atomic Bitchwax – Force Field (Tee Pee)

“You’re dumb as fuck. You fucking suck and now I hope you fuckin’ dieeeeeee!” Not my words but those of Chris Kosnick of The Atomic Bitchwax on the beast of a track “Shocker”. I myself share this sentiment and put… Continue Reading →

Lewis And The Strange Magics – Evade Your Soul (Soulseller Records)

Barcelona psyche-rockers, Lewis And The Strange Magics are an interesting prospect. Starting life in 2014 and with one album to their credit, sophomore release “Evade Your Soul” finds a band exploring a myriad of musical styles drawn from the sounds… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Dynamite – Big Bang (Dynamite Productions)

Who likes AC/DC? Thought so. Pretty much all of you had a hand up then didn’t you? ….apart from that weird lad at the back with the skin tight “factory ripped” black jeans, lumberjack shirt, complicated hair and cultured beard…..fuck… Continue Reading →
