Igorrr – Very Noise (Frenetic Flesh Beast War by MEAT DEPT.)

Igorrr – Very Noise (Frenetic Flesh Beast War by MEAT DEPT.)

  Caught a few words on this one here on the Spinternet, and lol, "insane" and "crazy" were just two of the choice cuts from total fools who obviously have never heard of Igorrr before, duh. It's unlikely you haven't heard of him, but you might be wondering why I'd bother with such a name […]

Worm – Gloomlord (Soul-Sloughing Doom)

  You know you're in for something different with this cover; it's one of those that makes your eyes wander for hours until the details wrap around your head and constrict. Worm avoid all popularity. Their presence is thin at most and hidden in Internet fog, and more importantly their music's a miasma that oozes […]

Obduktio – Ihmiskunnan Viholliset (Crude Rude Puke Punk)

  I can't recall a nice do-over of punk with some blackened crust from Finland. Most of what I get from the country with supposedly the toughest language in the world is black metal or, ugh, some of that Finnish hardcore-like-it's-1985 scene kid blather. Obduktio was a welcome addition to my "you should listen to […]

Control (Hype is Real Psychic Warfare Game)

Control (Hype is Real Psychic Warfare Game)

  Reviewing video games is hard. You can't toss out critique after brief play, it leads to score bloating. "This game looks great," you say after two minutes, and then "but wow does it suck" after two hours. IGN review already published? Oh well. So I've always tried to make sure I give a complete […]

L’Homme Absurde – Belong (Past-Black Metal)

L’Homme Absurde – Belong (Past-Black Metal)

  I'm trying to figure out why it's so easy to like post-black metal. It seems the morphing of classic aesthetic into a dreary, introspective void just works somehow. But this type of direction has been around so long can we even call it post anymore? It's like past-black metal now. Therein is the current […]

Sleepwraith – S/T (“For Fans Of” Derivative Metal)

  Now here's a nice example of "for fans of." Usually when I see that phrasein a promo I groan and the whole album is already in my head before I start. Sleepwraith are entirely new. You'll find almost nothing about them aside from ramblings about this very S/T on sites like ours. That's a […]

Night Call (Text-Based Noir Taxi Tedium)

Night Call (Text-Based Noir Taxi Tedium)

  I can remember hype text-based adventure games in the early 1980s. They still exist, but the market is quite niche. Read? Lol, I'm playing a game. Not an easy sell these days, that reading business, but a serial killer noir thriller? Easy victory. Or, rather, it could be. In Night Call you're a Parisian […]

NERATERRÆ – The Substance of Perception (Almost Pretentious Dark Ambient)

NERATERRÆ – The Substance of Perception (Almost Pretentious Dark Ambient)

  I feel bad for how late this review is, but it's totally not my fault. One, I typically never check for promos on the Facebook page, and two, Facebook tossed this in spam. So old why review? The fact is it's rare I receive submissions like this that I feel like reviewing, because dark […]

Goatblood – Apparition of Doomsday (Satan at Sea Blackened Death Metal)

Goatblood – Apparition of Doomsday (Satan at Sea Blackened Death Metal)

  This is the second sea-themed blackened death metal album I've reviewed this past month. Is this a new "thing"? I hope yet pray not. At least here it doesn't matter because it's German DM. Something needs to pick up all that slack from the power metal front, ugh. Goatblood have been bleeding out a […]

La Noira (Broken Heart Horror by Carlos Baena)

La Noira (Broken Heart Horror by Carlos Baena)

  La Noira received tons of praise before I even looked at it, and since my suggested viewing kept bothering me about it I figured "okay, fine." Directed by mainstream (gasp) powerhouse Carlos Baena (ahem Jurassic Park III and Toy Story 3, among many others) La Noira (which translates to "The Ferris Wheel") has been […]
