Interview with Fire-Toolz (Angel, More Like Cybergoddess)

I avoid the cliquery of the noise “scene”. The artists who don’t deserve credit get it, and the ones who truly deserve it are strangely overlooked. It’s a bizarre reality, at least in my opinion. Superficial “edginess” perhaps, or just a general lack of understanding what’s truly good. I’ve said it so many times. Noise […]

SPLITting Headache – Some Stuff

You know for all the damn splits that were released in the past year, I sure got only a few of them in the promo emails and regular mail. Why? Why can I not enjoy more splitting of the production costs and music? Why can I not compare one band to another on the same […]

Klara Lewis – Too

Sketches. Incomplete ideas of pictures yet to be formed. Idle lines on paper connected in moments of inspiration, never fully developed. Most of us are just sketches. Fragmented, splintered, incomplete representations of human beings, but yet we constantly hide this fact. We hide ourselves behind images that best represent our thoughts and shapes, and we […]

Vainaja – Verenvalaja

There is something in this world in need of a revival, revival in the classic sense, the religious sense. The word revival was used frequently many years ago to signify a return to religion, found typically in Christianity of the post-Catholic variety. As the world began to question the merits of the Christian faith in […]

Disemballerina – Poison Gown

We, a creature of nature, often forget this fact, going about our daily lives, constantly moving forwards, rarely looking back, attempting to live in a present that is at once past and future. It’s when we realize our own mortality, when we experience wretchedness that we understand everything is simply on the same path towards […]

Malokarpatan – Old World Child Sacrifice, New World Music

Been awhile since I slammed an interview, but this one was worth it. As you know, I don’t bother asking questions when bands are boring, and this pickiness has really increased site draw over the past few months so hey, must be doing something right by being all cocky and stuff. Malokarpatan released their first […]

Quick Reviews – January & February 2016

In case you missed it, we do special, short reviews now on Facebook. These are reserved for albums that aren’t quite awesome, but yet also not quite terrible. Full site reviews are now reserved for stuff that blows minds to bits, or makes you wish you could do that literally. This was simply a way […]

Alkerdeel – Lede

A devil wanders in Hallerbos, its thick, mildewed hair blending with the forest floor. Such devils as this have been ignored for so long, too long, remembered as mere relics of a forgotten time when nature was still a mystery. Like an infectious mosquito man bit into its hide, drawing what life was left there, […]

Cassette Assault – Some Stuff That’s Good

Now listen, you might think I’m lazy, and I get that, but this is a one-man show currently and I have to make sure you get your money’s worth. Yes, you’re not paying for anything, but if you think about it you’re using some bandwidth or data of some sort, and that costs somebody something, […]

Hopeless Youth – Devil, Walk with Me

Such moments wrap chains of memories around the mind. Before me is a face only a day prior could speak to me and kiss with emotion, with life. My fingers run over her cold skin and I cradle her slack body, running my fingers over the black lace on the dress in which she shall […]
