Fetters – S/T

Fetters – S/T

Ah, how long it’s been since I heard some death industrial that did my body bad. But I’m running out of analogies, and also ways of self-deprecating as a form of humor and not-so-clever criticism, because I’ve said that too. So how can this be any different? How can a band making reference to binding […]

AUTHORity – Rick Claypool LIVES

As at least some of you know, the site has been recently branching out to include more of underground culture, such as the first artist feature I did, and now, the first author feature. I didn’t know what else to call it, but I figured “AUTHORity” sounded pretty cool, yet also stupid, so we’ll stick […]

Artist Unmasked: Viktoria Polikarpova of Visionis Phosphorescent

As some of you know, I’ve been developing new ideas behind the scenes for the future of Deaf Sparrow, one of which was the plan to highlight different underground artists, including a showcase of their most recent art, like a digital gallery viewing. The reason behind this is I noticed a serious lack of support […]

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

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 […]

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

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

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 […]

Alkerdeel – Lede

A devil wanders in Hallerbos, its thick, mildewed hair blending with the forest floor. Such devils as this have been ignored for so long, too long, remembered as mere relics of a forgotten time when nature was still a mystery. Like an infectious mosquito man bit into its hide, drawing what life was left there, […]
