Holocausto – War Metal Massacre

Holocausto – War Metal Massacre

Where can I even begin with this album, which I’ve listened to at least three times a week for the past four months? I started where I usually do, by looking around at what others have to say, after I’ve already formed my own opinion. I often find myself alone, or partially, constantly saddened by […]

Streams of Blood – Allgegenwärtig

Streams of Blood – Allgegenwärtig

Can old aesthetic still prove reliable? It can, but anymore too many similarities to the old can be damning. Degraded art of the Xerox variety? Risky. I usually expect, with a cover like this, the absolute worst. Black and gray? Just a variation of black and white, and one can imagine the dialog between you […]

Watching the World Die – Gantz: 0

Watching the World Die – Gantz: 0

I was doing a cursory search through films the other day, looking for something to ruin me further, down into the deepest pits of the Internet where money is meaningless (you know what that means). I happened upon something I only knew about through GIFs, and assumed was merely a newer video game rendition of […]

Open Call for Correspondents (That Means Writers)

Open Call for Correspondents (That Means Writers)

The time has come. For awhile now I’ve been gathering ideas and starting to build some capital in preparation for a big push for new correspondents. Correspondents? It means writers, but it sounds more archaic and original so just accept it. Before I explain in detail, please note this is a paying position, but not […]

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

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

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

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

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 […]
