Ape Unit – Turd

Ape Unit – Turd

Grindcore is dragging on its last legs.  Scratch that, it didn't have any legs over the past ten years, it was a mere torso with arms.  Now those arms are gone, and it's ground its lower half into so many surfaces it's about up to its neck, close to the brain, where it can finally […]

Altarage – Nihil

Altarage – Nihil

Oh how we dread our submissions, oh how we loathe the endless messages, the letters (yes some people still write those), the pages upon pages of words soon forgotten in this escapist novel we turn called email.  The density can be overwhelming, never-ending, so repetitive it's scarcely possible to give more than a moment to […]

Pink Mass – Slvt Kvlt

We went on a bit of a tirade against grindcore on Facebook the other day, and it was justified.  Grindcore over the past decade has sunk into a swamp of humor in order to hide terrible musicianship.  You're probably laughing we used the word "musicianship" within this discussion, but seriously, we can't take it anymore. […]

Stellar Descent – …fading…

Stellar Descent – …fading…

What is a risk?  The easy answer is something, anything, where one takes a chance equaling failure or reward. The complex answer is either possibility is due to the application of the idea itself.  What do we mean?  Well, let's elaborate. In these times when music is so easy to create, not necessarily well, and […]

Aderlating – Hell Follows

One has to wonder if composers from the classical period were alive, what exactly would they be doing?  If they were born in the modern era, where would they be today?  What kind of music would they be making?  Avoid things of the popular, its analogies are fruitless, because in spite of what that music […]

Aluk Todolo – Voix

It's impossible to find a proper way of starting this, but others have tried, with pathetic results. Calling Aluk Todolo, direct quote, "an autistic version of Wolves in the Throne Room" is offensive.  Not to the autistic, or to Wolves in the Throne Room, but to music criticism.  That was the best you could do? […]

Regarde les Hommes Tomber – Exile

Regarde les Hommes Tomber – Exile

Some people consider us elusive, others bizarre and unnecessary.  Whatever we may be, we always make sure to regard the worst with the most foully derisive of language, and the best with the most confusing of personal journeys through minds that, strangely, have never touched a single narcotic.  Writers who amaze with their unusual prose […]

Svalbarduk – One Day All This Will End

I'm a bit confused here.  Not sure when this band changed their name from Svalbard to Svalbarduk but when the promo was downloaded from Haulix, it was Svalbard.  Their banner is Svalbard, their logo is Svalabard, their Bandcamp page is Svalbard, but their official Facebook band name and URL is Svalbarduk.  Do you know the […]

Stuzha – Butugichag

Perfect timing for this, what with all of the cold creeping in and killing everything.  Today the temperature dropped low enough to freeze puddles, and the pleasant sound of fracturing earth was welcome, but still, it's not cold enough.  We need cold that anything living dreads, cold you can feel in your bone marrow.  Stop […]

BLACK YO)))GA – Asanas Ritual, Vol. 1

So it has been a bit, eh?  Now that the seasons are getting colder, I'm growing more and more Minnesotan in my Seattle landscape in order to best combat the troubles ahead.  Yesterday I chose not to wear any normal clothing and wore traditional Minnesotan garb of fur pelts from animals and consumed the beating […]
