Quick Reviews – January & February 2016

lelz

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 of streamlining and keeping our content quality high, while still giving bands who submit material a chance for some promotion. All of these reviews were originally found on our Facebook page in January and February of 2016. They are shown in order of appearance.

Nahum - And the Chaos Has Begun
And The Chaos Has Begun by NahumCzech death thrash outfit Nahum is trying their best to be as independent as possible, and that's likely because they have yet to really break any ground. Click here to read the original review published 29 January 2016.  Score: 3.3 / 5

Haethen - Shaped by Aeolian Winds

Even after listening to this at least twelve times over an entire year, I still have the same opinion, it's withered and bassless (yes, spelling intentional). Click here to read the original review published 9 February 2016.  Score: 3.2 / 5

WAKE - Sowing the Seeds of a Worthless Tomorrow

WAKE present a release here that seems like that wallflower you always wondered about in HS, but once you got to know realized was vacuous and the fantasy was not reality. Click here to read the oiginal review published 10 February 2016.  Score: 3 / 5

drumcorps - Falling Forward

This one is filled with innovation and mind-bending alterations to age-old techniques in electronica and proof, again, that Nicholas of Ad Noiseam knows exactly what to release. Click here to read the original review published 19 February 2016. Score: 4.6 / 5Caecus - Affliction

These guys known how to present things as cavernous, but trust me in saying you've been in this cave before. Click read to read the original review published 26 February 2016Score: 3.7 / 5Wretch - Tirades

Why do so many grind bands think being funny is part of the aesthetic? If you're looking for juvenile grind with farts, here you go. Click here to read the original review published 29 February 2016Score: 3 / 5
