Lord Dying – Mysterium Tremendum (eOne)

Portland, Oregon. It seems as if one in every three new doom albums from the USA hail from this location. In fairness to Lord Dying, they’ve been going since 2010, so at the very least have some proper heritage to… Continue Reading →

The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard – BooCheMish (Prophecy)

Eklipse – A Night in Strings (Soul Food Records)

“A Night in Strings” is an apt title. The strings in question are two violins, one viola and a cello, played by this female quartet fromGermany. This collection of covers from such varied artists as LinkinPark, Depeche Mode, Lady Gaga… Continue Reading →
