Uneven Structure

Uneven Structure – Paragon (Longbranch/SPV)

One of the things that we, as heavy rock/metal music fans, often enjoy is the dense sea of different genres that encompass the music we love. There seems not to be a niche untouched, a style not overturned, an approach… Continue Reading →

Buy Jupiter – Eclipse (Apathia Records)

Heavy, violent, technical … so begins this four track EP from French metallers Buy Jupiter. It may be trying to kill me with overpowering force, but it’s dynamic and I’m loving it. Djenty heavy tech death give way to a… Continue Reading →

In Motion – Thriving Force (Freya Records)

It’s handy to have contacts. Without naming names and probably without needing to, the guy behind this Belgian progressive thrash metal project has roped in vocalists from Soilwork, Revocation, Dagoba, Uneven Structure and a bunch of others for this album…. Continue Reading →

Vanora – Momentum (Crime Records)

I’m not especially a fan of TesseracT or Meshuggah, who are quoted as a reference point for this band from Norway. I suppose it’s handy to have a reference point to attract potential interest, but what counts is the creativity… Continue Reading →

UK Tech-Fest, Newark Showground, Saturday 8th July 2017

UK Tech-Fest is always an event to look forward to with its interesting variety of international bands, a great atmosphere and organisers who think of everything, including a fine selection of real ales. AveNoctum’s John Skibeat (JS) and Andrew Doherty… Continue Reading →

Exocrine – Ascension (Great Dane Records)

Exocrine’s debut album “Unreal Existence” was an intense no holds barred technically progressive metal affair, so it was good to learn that this quartet from Bordeaux have followed it up with another one. The band announce their intention without delay… Continue Reading →

Fallujah – Dreamless (Nuclear Blast)

The world has been waiting for a band like Fallujah. That’s what the band’s vocalist says. So understatement in the music seemed an unlikely outcome in the case of “Dreamless”. Wow. Well I have to say this oeuvre from the… Continue Reading →

Textures – Phenotype (Nuclear Blast)

Dutch goliaths Textures are rapidly building quite a reputation for quality songwriting. Following the instant success of debut album Polars they have gone on to build quite the back catalogue. All that culminated in their finest work-to-date, 2011’s polyrhythmic genre-morphing… Continue Reading →

The Room Colored Charlatan – Primitives (Subliminal Groove Records)

The story behind The Planet Of The Apes, a French novel by Pierre Boulle, was deemed great enough to warrant a movie of its own. That birthed a 70s franchise which then kicked off a comic book series, a TV… Continue Reading →

Oestre – La Dernière Renaissance (Manitou Music)

Reinvented electronic metal is the description I read about the music of this band from France. Essentially this is lively modern metal with tributes paid to Meshuggah, Textures and unsurprisingly Oestre’s compatriots Gojira and Hacride. Industrial noises, thunderous roars and… Continue Reading →
