Mutoid Waste Company – Punkx – London Granary Square 4/6/16

Legendary performance arts collective The Mutoid Waste Company have been around since the early 80’s and there is a good chance that if you have been on the festival scene you will have wondered if you were seeing things when… Continue Reading →

Arkhe – A (S/R)

Arkhe main man András Nagy has produced some decent black metal with his main band Sear Bliss. So it was intriguing to see how that might translate into another project which promised to be drawn up from a blank sheet…. Continue Reading →

Surgical Meth Machine: S/T (Nuclear Blast)

Back in late December 2012, long time partner in crime of Al Jourgensen Mike Scaccia sadly passed away and this was what would be the second tolling of the death bell for Ministry after their initial disbanding back in 2009…. Continue Reading →

Mortiis- The Great Deceiver (Omnipresence)

Frozen Ocean – Prills Of Remembrance (S/R)
