Ogre – When I Land (Isolating Suicidal Noise)

Ogre – When I Land (Isolating Suicidal Noise)

  Man, this guy hits hard on so many levels. Aurally, visually, philosophically, mentally, I mean I feel like my soul never existed or was replaced with spider webs covered in wrist blood. I've been trying to dip the site further into noise now and then because it's been so underrepresented, but the problem is […]

Ami-Bique – きょむりま (From Japan = Good Always)

  I've been begging for some good noise for so long I decided it's not a musical genre anymore. Harsh noise wall, which is what I usually see in the promo emails, also needs to die. It consistently lacks purpose, the stuff children create. Record AM radio static and add some meaningless, deep title to […]

GrooVenoM – Wir müssen reden (Lol Trancebore)

GrooVenoM – Wir müssen reden (Lol Trancebore)

  Sure formula for destruction is core + anything else. See that core? It will, lol, bore. Metalcore, deathcore, anycore, shed a tear for the human race, and then jump off a bridge. Imagine my suicidal thoughts when I saw this particular German troupe in the promos, who annoyingly spell their name with only some […]

Stonecast – I Earther (I Wanter More Space Metal)

  Wow, what do you know, I was ripping on power/melodic and whatever else metal a week or so ago and here we are again. Is this the end? The artwork by Stan Decker would seem to suggest so, but I do have some kind words today, at least for Stonecast, and at least a […]

Pounder – Uncivilized (Badass Period Heavy Metal)

Pounder – Uncivilized (Badass Period Heavy Metal)

  I can't remember the last time I reviewed heavy metal. Unlike thrash, which you still feel totally badass for listening to, heavy metal can lack that effect outside of its original context, that is, the olden times. It has a tendency to feel more dated than Satanic imagery in metal at large. Oh shit […]

Fiend – Seeress (Doompth Metal)

Fiend – Seeress (Doompth Metal)

  Yo I just came up with a new term: "doompth metal." At first read that sounds horrible, like a new taunt. You doompthus! That, another new word, is definitely a taunt, but doompth is not, sometimes. Okay let me be honest here it kind of is. Truth be told it's all I could come […]

Besta – Eterno Rancor (Crust Metal Capitalism)

Besta – Eterno Rancor (Crust Metal Capitalism)

  Yet another example of a book judged properly by its banking account. Marco Donida probably listened to Eterno Rancor as many times as I did, because I myself certainly thought of crucified snake Jesuses, a meth lab with a floating brain, a skeleton sycophant wading in toxic waste and refugee vomit with a bayoneted […]

Great Falls – A Sense of Rest (Post-Prefix Hardcore)

Great Falls – A Sense of Rest (Post-Prefix Hardcore)

  There was something to this one I couldn't find the adjectives to explain, and then it came to me, just choose a prefix or two, though I'll focus on "un." Unengaging, ungood, see how easy? Let me explain further so it's more unclear. Post-hardcore goes in one of two directions: interesting or uninteresting. The […]

Black Viper – Hellions of Fire (Woah You Guys Do Power and/or Speed Metal?)

Black Viper – Hellions of Fire (Woah You Guys Do Power and/or Speed Metal?)

  Sheah, we do power metal and/or speed metal on occasion. Got a problem with the gap in reviews? Huh? Deal with it (sunglasses drop), because most of it sucks hard. Too old school and/or not enough modern bite. Unlike thrash, which the majority of us can give a pass to regardless of how old […]
