Quick Reviews – September 2017

In case you missed it, we do special, short reviews now of stuff that's not up to the standards I set for full reviews. Meaning, the cover art sucks. This doesn't mean the music isn't any good, of course, but as you know, at least 1/4 of an album's presence is in its art, a […]

Mourners Lament – We All Be Given (We All Be Boring, More Like)

Yeah, you know, so everything about this album is boring. Even this review is boring, why read it? I was first drawn to the art, but much like the music after several experiences with it I'm not sure I know what the hell I'm looking at and I'm too bored to try anymore. What at […]

Seems we're on something of a black metal trend here as of late, so why not go further with it?  One of the things we discussed in our last review was the issue of differentiating between classic black metal and the modern post variety.  Yesterday it was the latter, today we step back to the former.

Siaskel: Jatenentolpen Thejin

You know, usually you see a logo that looks like a combination of sticks and sinews and you figure "oh, here we go, one of these bands," but now and then behind the logo is a name that deserves reading, and a proper font.  Siaskel has an interesting approach in concept, and usually that kind of thing […]
