SPLITting Headache – Some Stuff

SPLITting Headache – Some Stuff

You know for all the damn splits that were released in the past year, I sure got only a few of them in the promo emails and regular mail. Why? Why can I not enjoy more splitting of the production costs and music? Why can I not compare one band to another on the same […]

Vainaja – Verenvalaja

There is something in this world in need of a revival, revival in the classic sense, the religious sense. The word revival was used frequently many years ago to signify a return to religion, found typically in Christianity of the post-Catholic variety. As the world began to question the merits of the Christian faith in […]

Cassette Assault – Some Stuff That’s Good

Now listen, you might think I'm lazy, and I get that, but this is a one-man show currently and I have to make sure you get your money's worth. Yes, you're not paying for anything, but if you think about it you're using some bandwidth or data of some sort, and that costs somebody something, […]

Interview with Sea Witch (No Band Photos, They Are a Force Not a Band)

Doom metal.  A genre that's really getting on our nerves anymore.  Too little variety, too much cut-and-paste aesthetic, too much simplicity, too much too much too much.  We panned one of those bands not so long ago, yet another doing the same old thing but somehow riding fame for that very reason.  But there are […]

Label EXPOSED – Caligari Records

Well, it's been awhile since we did one of these, in fact back before the new site became active, so it has to have been about three or four years now.  And what a fitting reunion!  We have here, that's right, a label exposure for Caligari Records, owned and run by the former owner/editor of […]

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 […]

CASSETTE ASSAULT – Speed it Up, Slow it Down!

Yes, you are correct, it's that time again.  Time to pull out the altar that is your tape deck, whatever its size, whatever its age, though we prefer original hardware.  In fact, you know what, you're out of the cult if you don't have a deck from the 1980s, so check it right now.  Good? […]

Interview with Necro Deathmort (Yes We Asked About That Name)

Ugh, sometimes real life gets in our underground way Goddamn it anyway.  But enough of that, you don't even need details, you all need another one of our fine, detailed, and informative interviews, and we're not joking around.  Typically, we only ask questions of what we consider to be the finest acts that we review, stuff […]

Nevoa – The Absence of Void

Before I begin, I want to go out and say that if you're going to ask me to review your album or whatever, I would very much appreciate it you - I don't know, gave me the album? I've had a few people message me over the last few weeks about reviews and I want […]

Monolord – Vænir

The artwork from this one is just splendid, let's get that out now.  It's esoteric, brooding, possibly Gothic, in the classical sense, not modern, and it gives one "the feels" in its stark simplicity.  We expect great things out of great art, and some bands don't appreciate how critical a cover can be for how […]
