Temples on Mars – S/T (Primordial Records)

Temples on Mars – S/T (Primordial Records)

My first encounter with London-based Temples on Mars was at ProgPower Europe this year. I learned that this London-based band was previously called Agent, hardly a stand-out name, and this is effectively a re-launch. After the band’s entertaining heavy melodic prog rock set, I picked.. Read More
Bonjour Tristesse - Your Ultimate Urban Nightmare (Lifeforce)

Bonjour Tristesse – Your Ultimate Urban Nightmare (Lifeforce)

Bonjour Tristesse, originally, is a popular novel by Francoise Sagan published in 1954. I read it a long time ago and didn’t like it much. Too melodramatic. I could be mistaken of course, but I don’t think the German one-man black metal project with the.. Read More
Boss Keloid - Melted On The Inch (Holy Roar)

Boss Keloid – Melted On The Inch (Holy Roar)

“You will be surprised by our next album mate! It Is NOTHING like anything else we have done. In fact, it is almost a 180 in comparison to Herb!” These were the words of Paul Swarbrick, guitarist and tone monster of Boss keloid, back at.. Read More
Eryn Non Dae – Abandon Of The Self (Debemur Morti)

Eryn Non Dae – Abandon Of The Self (Debemur Morti)

It sometimes feels like the journey into the globe’s metal extremities is a continuous descent down an ever blackening rabbit hole, constantly looking for new and darker corners, so little wonder that things can get a bit blinkered sometimes. It’s therefore perhaps worth remembering –.. Read More
Empress – Reminiscence (S/R)

Empress – Reminiscence (S/R)

An early 2018 review, and a true breath of fresh air boasting unexpected excellence; that’s the short version of the review for this EP, and whilst this may be more than sufficient were this a one inch column in the latest edition of Kerrapp (other.. 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
Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Verdigris is more commonly recognised as some kind of strange blue-green-science-thingy involving acid, copper and weather effects… Or something which Wikipedia/A Chemistry textbook/Websters Dictionary or any other useful reference material can explain much more eloquently and effectively than I can… So if you’re of the..

Mother Of Millions - Sigma (ViciSolum)

Mother Of Millions – Sigma (ViciSolum)

Returning once again to cast their dark and captivating musical mastery over us all, Athenian five piece Mother Of Millions are set to unleash ‘Sigma’, their second full length release and follow up to the incredible debut offering ‘Human’ (2014). Conceptual again like its predecessor,.. Read More
Daydream XI - Circus Of The Tattered And Torn (Sensory)

Daydream XI – Circus Of The Tattered And Torn (Sensory)

Progressive Metal and concept albums go hand in hand, much like those released in the 60’s and 70’s in the realms of the Prog Rock genre. Artistic licence to create long, convoluted and ‘deep’ stories which are conveyed through the medium of music, it’s not.. Read More
Korea – Abiogenesis (Vicisolum Records)

Korea – Abiogenesis (Vicisolum Records)

Now, be honest. Have you spent the last seven years in anticipation of Korea’s new album? I confess that I hadn’t, contrary to the claim that seven years of waiting is over. In fact I didn’t know about Korea, who not so self-evidently are from.. Read More
My Sleeping Karma - Mela Ananda (Napalm)

My Sleeping Karma – Mela Ananda (Napalm)

Translating from Hindi, Mela Ananda means “A gathering of bliss”. This is a rather fitting album title for the first live recording by Teutonic instrumental giants My Sleeping Karma in their ten year career. With MSK already receiving some pretty in depth coverage on this.. Read More
