The Ocean & Rosetta – Zagreb, Mochvara 17/11/18

Zagreb’s Mochvara had already filled up nicely when Rosetta started their show right at the announced time, or maybe five minutes later. It was bloody cold outside and nobody fancied drinking their beer on the club’s windy terrace. Rosetta certainly… Continue Reading →

The Ocean Collective – Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic (Metal Blade / Pelagic Records)

This is one of those releases you could write a treatise about (not that such releases are abundant). Its scope is so ambitious, it borders on megalomania. But that’s fine with me. Who has ever achieved anything significant by setting… Continue Reading →

Nightmarer – Cacophony Of Terror (Season Of Mist)

What do you get if you cross a member of Success Will Write Apocalypse Across the Skies with one of The Ocean and an ex from War From A Harlots mouth? Nope there’s no punch-line here just a trio with… Continue Reading →

Gorguts – Pleiades’ Dust (Season of Mist)

Closet Disco Queen – S/T (Hummus Records)

The releases by Hummus have given me the opportunity to experience and indulge in some of the most experimental music I’ve heard in a long time. Closet Disco Queen whose strange moniker shines a light on the aural strangeness contained… Continue Reading →

A Swarm Of The Sun – The Rifts (Version Studio Records)

With a rather nice digipack CD forwarded to me through the post I was intrigued by the description afforded this Swedish band whose second album is already out and available on all platforms including the resurgent vinyl format. Post rock… Continue Reading →

Corbeaux – Hit The Head (S/R)

Interestingly this debut release from Swiss instrumental post metallers Corbeaux has been mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna) and that name drop gives you an inkling of where this band resides musically. It’d be unfair to say that the… Continue Reading →
