Niveau Zero: Jasmine

Niveau Zero: Jasmine

Ad Noiseam needs so much more attention.  And we need to stop saying that because should you check every review we've done for the label in the past, it's probably at the start of all of them.  It's clear the guy's doing something right, because most of the electronic we receive tends to be of […]

Stampkase: Mechanorganism

In the history of modern chug-a-lug, there are bands who chug, some who lug, and some who chug and lug, thus the title of this modern genre that we only now created. Being masters of both the pun and onomatopoeia, we figured we'd provide the very most in accuracy and tagging for all of you […]

Elizabeth: Insomnia

Elizabeth: Insomnia

There are two types of bands:  recording artists, and performing acts.  Where some bands spend countless hours finely tuning each note and sound, others believe that a true following is earned by spending unforgiving months and years on the road, playing to apathetic crowds of three pimple faced dirtbags guzzling Highlife in the corner... and […]

Broken Hope: Omen of Disease

Broken Hope: Omen of Disease

Broken Hope was one of the earlier death metal acts, hailing from Chicago, and really creating an entire scene in their wake, a critical step towards today's toss-around term of 'brutal'.  They've been around a lot longer than most acts, and they have the scars to prove it, and loss.  Imagine everyone's surprise, after the […]

Bay of Blood

Bay of Blood

Mario Bava has always been that Italian director false horror fans seem to overlook, instead latching onto Lucio Fluci for some damn reason, often without sufficient explanation.  Fulci, to his credit, was a rather prolific director with his hands over almost any genre you could think of, and today he has a cult following largely […]

Glorior Belli: Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls

Glorior Belli: Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls

Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls, the newest full length offering from French black metalers Glorior Belli, opens with a riff so similar to "Sunshine of your Love" by Cream, that, if it weren't for the fact that it's very clearly a knowing homage, could potentially result in a career demolishing lawsuit. Which isn't to say the […]

Nightstick Interview

Nightstick Interview

It was an incredible honor to even have the chance to do this, and yet again we're welcome into an online friendship of sorts with Robert Williams, one of the founding members of Nightstick.  He's on the far left above next to Alex Smith (bass/vocals), Padoinka the clown (interpretive dance), and Cotie Cowgill (guitars).  Just […]

Quick and Dirty Reviews

Quick and Dirty Reviews

You're probably wondering how in the world this post is dated before the actual new site release.  Well, that's because it was written before, and, well, published before technically.  Deal with it.  Either way, we had to kick it off with a new special feature.  This here is our first selection of quick reviews, fast, […]

Portal: Vexovoid

Portal: Vexovoid

Portal have always been one of those bands that caused line walkers to jump off the chasm and never return.  This means, we're not going to use the classic argument.  It's not a matter of "love them or hate them", it's not at all.  Portal doesn't give you an opportunity to sit any sort of […]

Mamiffer + Circle: Enharmonic Intervals (for Paschen Organs)

Mamiffer + Circle: Enharmonic Intervals (for Paschen Organs)

Mamiffer & Circle have combined to create a joint production, Enharmonic Intervals (for Paschen Organ), a project which is experimental and completely different than what one would normally associate with the works of either Mamiffer or Circle separately, such as Mamiffer’s piano sketches or Circle’s metallic sound. This collaboration is largely lacking the characteristics that make these […]
