Hemorrhage – Chapter One EP

Hemorrhage – Chapter One EP

How many times have we opened a review with “wow” around here?  One too many, certainly, so let’s start this one out on a different note.  If only we had the buzzwords to do it…at least one…  What about a phrase instead?  How about simply this is of the “I want to punch someone who […]

Monastery – Peculiar Storms

You ever look at something and say “yeah, this will be good”?  Here is a case of that, so thank the new deities of the true arts, Seraphim House, for the opportunity to listen to such beauty.  Robb, the mind behind Monastery,  took the time to send an absolutely spectacular package that, upon opening the box, caused me […]

Joo Won Park & dRachEmUsiK – Side Dish Side Affect

Joo Won Park & dRachEmUsiK – Side Dish Side Affect

Ah, after all this metal blasphemy and power, it’s good to sit back and think.  Refreshing to run our minds over the more complex matter that surrounds us, the human being, and to try to figure out what it all means, but end up figuring out nothing and drooling into a stupor.  There is quite […]

SaturninE – S/T Demo

Wait, this is a demo?  There’s no way, there’s just no way.  This little beauty was tucked away in a box the old editor had in his possession, and this guy, new editor, found it while digging through the dregs to find the goodies to actually review (that’s how we do it now, not everything can […]

Valence – Laser Baron

The curse of the prog, none shall survive.  2/3 of Europe wiped out from the prog, leading to the Dark Ages of music.  The prog is airborne, it may come again, it may poison us all.  Really doubt you got that reference that, and thinking on it now it really doesn’t make much sense.  Here’s […]

Fistula – Vermin Prolificus

Fistula – Vermin Prolificus

Started an interesting conversation with the guy from the distro that sent us this today about my wife’s total dedication to doing squats.  Anyway, that’s private stuff, kind of like a fistula.  No, not the band, but what they’re named after, which is probably the worst thing that can ever happen to the human body. […]

Perturbator – Dangerous Days

Perturbator – Dangerous Days

Yeah, been kind of on a kick for this type of music recently, but this is perhaps the best we’ve ever heard.  Wait, didn’t we say that last week?  Around here people change, it’s fact.  And we can change in a week.  Perturbator fits nicely into the dark synthwave genre, creating a sound similar to […]

All Torn Up! – Drone Life

All Torn Up! – Drone Life

What is it with bands sometimes including punctuation in their name?  We’ve seen this before with hardcore, but it’s really an interesting phenomenon, and some day someone is going to need a sociology dissertation, or maybe in linguistics, so there you go, figure this one out.  Or, rather, figure this one out!  Not too long […]

Sectu – Nefarious

Sectu – Nefarious

Bare with us, because this may be the worst logo ever created and you know we like to gossip.  Think we’re exaggerating for flavor?  No, trust us, we’ve seen some bad ones.  But this one isn’t bad because it’s illegible, no, it’s bad because it should be totally legible, but ironically it isn’t.  What is […]

T.O.M.B. – Third Wave Holocaust

T.O.M.B. – Third Wave Holocaust

At first we were stoked that another label was doing something like this, but it turns out Malignant Records pulled a fast one on us, because Black Plagve productions is actually a sister label, maybe sublabel if you prefer, with more of a focus on death industrial, noise, and power electronics instead of the dark […]
