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 […]

Vainaja – Verenvalaja

There is something in this world in need of a revival, revival in the classic sense, the religious sense.

"Groan...really," […]

SCUMRISE!: Super Hits EP

Finland has a rather vibrant underground, but most of what we've heard here is of the hardcore variety, for some reason.  Yes, believe it or not, Finnish hardcore is a "a thing," as it were.  Why do we question your belief?  Because who associates Finland with anything but trolls and poorly-written troll metal, right?  Well, […]
