Joo Won Park & dRachEmUsiK – Side Dish Side Affect

Ah, after all this metal blasphemy and power, it's good to sit back and think.  Refreshing to run our minds over the more complex matter that surrounds us, the human being, and to try to figure out what it all means, but end up figuring out nothing and drooling into a stupor.  There is quite […]

Pivixki – Gravissima

Always wondered what something like this would sound like, and trust us, we've heard plenty of people saying they did it.  "Here it is," they say, "we've made metal with a piano."  But it's never worked.  It's sounded pretentious, overly-wrought, and frankly lacking in the essence of what metal is: power.  Without that, don't even […]

Chvad SB – Crickets Were the Compass

Holy living God, this is probably the worst album cover we've ever seen.  So bad, in fact, it's the sole reason this album didn't get a perfect score.  Now, hey, hey now, wait up, we love the music, but it deserved something better!  Something with this much value musically needs a proper visual representation.  In […]

Magnetic Stripper – Extended Play-R

In the world of experimental music you have MLG and you nave n00bs.  Unfortunately, the latter tends to dominate the field, simply because everyone thinks it's so easy to do.  This becomes especially noticeable with noise, which is probably the most overrated genre in existence because at least 90% of "artists" waste our time hopping […]

Storm Ross – The Green Realm

This one hurts, it does.   It always hurts us to our core when we have to give something an average or even slightly negative review.  But not just that, because sometimes being negative is entirely enjoyable.  However, in cases when the submission comes so professionally done and with so much care given to the […]

Verdant: Sincerity

God the artwork on this thing...  Now and then you come across an album where the artwork, or in this case photography, basically does justice to the actual sound therein.  Every song on this feels like what you see, it even sounds like it in its best moments, like the inside of some old mausoleum […]

Pensées Nocturnes: Nom d’une Pipe!

Black metal is arguably the best subgenre to do absolutely weird shit in. The dark, blasphemous nature is a great medium to allow musicians to experiment in scary and bizarre ways.  Bands such as Deathspell Omega, Sigh, Transcending Bizarre?, and Thy Catalfalque dominate with experimentation and pushing the limits of black metal. Pensees Nocturnes is […]

Aenaon: Extance

Greek black metal has never really been 'a thing'. Norwegian, Swedish, German, French, Finnish, and U.S. black metal have distinguished sounds and scenes but Greece is one of those countries that really never managed to create a solid metal community. There have been few distinguished bands such as Nocternity, Kawir, Thou Art Lord, Astarte, and […]

San Kazakgascar: Drought Times EP

Bollywood, something we could probably get into around here, but sadly have yet to do it.  Hey, blame all the music we're constantly swarmed with, as well as the habit, for some of us at least, of playing too many old school games for no good reason.  There's only so much in this life one […]
