Emerald – Restless Souls (Rock Of Angels)

On the surface, Emerald appear to be one of those underground, grafting European Heavy/Power Metal bands that either (1) do a couple of decent albums and vanish, (2) release a few independent ones and keep going for years or (3)… Continue Reading →

Darkrise – Circle Of Failure (Punishing Records)

Quite why I’ve never come across this Swiss act is puzzling such is their relatively prolific discography over the span of about two decades. Though I will rectify that by investigating their back catalogue forthwith as this sixth release sees… Continue Reading →

Camilla Sparksss – Brutal (On The Camper Records)

Sometimes we get some really leftfield curveball discs sent in to review and whereas if they are digital downloads and we can press delete and think, not for us, we do try our best. This is one such example and… Continue Reading →

The Young Gods are back! The Swiss industrial pioneers have returned with their new studio L.P. ‘Data Mirage Tangram’, their first full album since 2010’s ‘Everybody Knows’. Recorded after a time of public experimentation, Young Gods’ main man Franz Treichler… Continue Reading →

Calcined – Discipline (Great Dane)

Yet again I am here to bring you more Death Metal and this time I wish to answer the question what makes Death Metal so appealing? Well to be frank all genres of Metal are ridiculously broad so as far… Continue Reading →

The Crotals – Horde (Tenacity)

An interesting fact, well to me anyway, that I discovered about The Crotals is that instead of using a bass they use a baritone guitar. This fits quite nicely as the Swiss band’s music of preference, judging by this album,… Continue Reading →
