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 […]

Quick Reviews – January & February 2016

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 […]

Cassette Assault – Some Stuff That’s Good

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, […]

Storm of Noise – The 2nd Offensive

Storm of Noise – The 2nd Offensive

We’re back, it’s the second coming, or better yet, the second offensive.  Due to the huge glut of metal we receive in terms of promotional material, we conceived of a special noise-only feature a few months ago to give the best artists some exposure.  This is the second appearance of it after a strong showing the […]

Label EXPOSED – Caligari Records

Label EXPOSED – Caligari Records

Well, it’s been awhile since we did one of these, in fact back before the new site became active, so it has to have been about three or four years now.  And what a fitting reunion!  We have here, that’s right, a label exposure for Caligari Records, owned and run by the former owner/editor of […]

CASSETTE ASSAULT – Speed it Up, Slow it Down!

CASSETTE ASSAULT – Speed it Up, Slow it Down!

Yes, you are correct, it’s that time again.  Time to pull out the altar that is your tape deck, whatever its size, whatever its age, though we prefer original hardware.  In fact, you know what, you’re out of the cult if you don’t have a deck from the 1980s, so check it right now.  Good? […]

The Good, The Bad, The Unsigned

The Good, The Bad, The Unsigned

This was always a favorite feature of the original owner/editor of Deaf Sparrow on the old site, but we had yet to bring it back, so here it is, “The Good, The Bad, The Unsigned”.  The title, awesome, the process simple.  What we do is run through four submissions from unsigned bands/musicians that we’ve received recently, […]

THE THREE HEADS OF CERBERUS – The Last Hour

THE THREE HEADS OF CERBERUS – The Last Hour

Well that’s kind of a cool title for a little special feature, isn’t it?  We previously referred to this as “Triple Header” the last time we did it, which was way before this new version of the site launched.  Since then we’ve only done our “Double Header” feature a few times, but not the triple. […]

STORM OF NOISE – The 1st Offensive

So it’s time for some of this, everyone.  In the past we received a decent amount of noise promos for review, or let’s just say experimental to cover everything under the sun so no one feels like an outsider.  But recently we’ve been hit with a wave of metal of the ‘blackened’ variety, or just […]
