Chong Wizard – The Reality Stone

Chong Wizard – The Reality Stone

  There’s something far more potent lurking in Canada (Vancouver, BC specifically) than mere moose, hockey, or maple syrup. What could possibly hit harder than those two? Why, it’s none other than your friendly neighborhood DJ Chong Wizard, of course, who's probably Deadpool's favorite hip hop producer yo. While a comic book motif isn’t exactly […]

Malsanctum – S/T (Two Minutes to Funeral Doom’s Funeral)

Malsanctum – S/T (Two Minutes to Funeral Doom’s Funeral)

  Well, here it is, likely the first time something from Iron Bonehead Productions actually depresses me in the other way. I prefer the "why does the human race exist?" type of depression, but this is more of a "why was this album released?" sadness. Now, please pause, for I have already started this on an […]

Délétère – De Horae Leprae (Canada’s Best Black Metal Band Do You Hear Me?)

  That's right, I'm going straight literal with the title to this review, because it's true do you hear me? Don't even bother tossing names of other Canadian black metal outfits at me, just don't. Délétère is the only one I want to hear about from now on do you hear me? I actually reviewed a previous release by them […]

Profane Order – Tightened Noose of Sanctimony (Demo Metal)

I almost started a new feature with this one, covering only demos, but I so rarely get any that I'd even consider reviewing I figured eh, let's just do this as the usual apocryphal review. Profane Order you've probably never heard of, but you likely will in the coming years, depending on what they do. […]

Revenger – The New Mythology Vol. 1 (Singer Vacancy, Do Not Apply)

  Now here's a curious thing. So curious I'm not sure I've ever discussed it. First off, let's get the bio puke out of the way. Revenger come from Canada, and I don't recall ever having heard of them until this release. As usual, you know me, the cover is what first got my attention, […]

Hopeless Youth – Limited Edition Cassette and Shirt

Here we go, oh yes. Time for the next product, or I should say "ritual", for you to purchase. That's right, like you, I thrive on money and something like fame. Actually it's just fake, but the money isn't, and don't forget any profits I get go straight to the band! I keep only production […]

Délétère – Per Aspera Ad Pestilentiam (Black Metal, Sans Water Fowl)

The last time I tasted Canadian black metal this dude put a bunch of geese squawking over garbage tremolo as part of the "aesthetic" and it was ridiculous. Délétère has a different approach, thankfully, though I admit I would've liked to laugh at more inane and completely out-of-place samples of water fowl over black metal, […]

Hopeless Youth – Devil, Walk with Me

Hopeless Youth – Devil, Walk with Me

Such moments wrap chains of memories around the mind. Before me is a face only a day prior could speak to me and kiss with emotion, with life. My fingers run over her cold skin and I cradle her slack body, running my fingers over the black lace on the dress in which she shall […]

Gomorrah – The Haruspex

Gomorrah – The Haruspex

Upon the rocks climbed the penitent seeking the best path to cleansing. His fingers bled as he neared the top of the precipice, briefly glancing at the sun, the light obscuring the path which he climbed below. Under his feet and around seemed nothing more than a bright, white nothingness. Turning his face again to […]

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 […]
