CASSETTE ASSAULT (Stuff I’ve Been Sitting Upon)

It's been a long time since I've done one of these, and that's primarily because of a special app I'm seriously working on for the site where I can give some press to stuff I don't review on in this way anymore. Bad art, or just ehhh releases, will all have their due eventually. Sometimes this […]

Mob Psycho 100 (Best Anime of All Time Fight Me IRL)

It can be so hard to find good anime. Well, I take that back, it's probably true that most anime is good since it breaks with the stale conventions of American and European media, but there's just so damn much of it. Who has the time to go through a series with like 500+ episodes? Not me, […]

In Celebration of Violence (Action/Adventure RPG Blood Fest)

This is just such a great game. In Celebration of Violence has been at least getting decent press since its release in February of this year, but it needs a lot more, otherwise the developer/producer behind it, Julian Edison, won't get that sweet impetus he needs to make some more games son. If you're looking […]

Destroy All Gondolas – Laguna Di Satana

It's rare that I actually say something is unique. And I should make that as actually say so you get the emphasis. I joke, I rip to pieces, I vent, but sometimes I give my blood. It is time to give your blood to this band. I remember when I first reviewed their S/T 7" three […]

IPERYT – The Patchwork Gehinnom

This one really surprised me. I had heard some whispers of Poland's IPERYT (which translates from Polish to mustard gas) before, but the genre of "industrial metal" has all but buried itself. Why? There's been a big push towards the so-called "organic" in music, including all forms of metal. This is really part of the […]

Card Quest (Old-School RPG Card Slam)

In case you didn't notice, Deaf Sparrow has dabbled in video game critique before, I just wanted to think about the best direction to take, and based on my current music review output, it made the most sense to focus on up-and-coming developers with a small amount of press, as well as games that fit […]

The Neon Demon (2016) – The Wicked Die Young

Some people think I'm too slow. What's the point of reviewing something if it was released months ago? Well, I actually analyze what I review, and that takes time, and hey, who doesn't mind a publicity push after the fact? I can fly through albums pretty quickly, but for films and video games, there's more […]

Drug Honkey – Cloak of Skies

Drug Honkey – Cloak of Skies

Doom metal is a genre close to collapse, I'm more and more sure of it. It has as much redundancy currently as NY hardcore and baby boomer punk, so think about it, do you really want to keep listening to it? It's far too hesitant to change when change is needed, and far too comfortable […]

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 […]
