Ur Draugr – With Hunger Undying

I don't know if anyone consistently follows or reads my reviews but if you have been, you'll notice that most have been very positive. Unfortunately, I don't often bother with bands I'm unfamiliar with unless Stan sends them my way (and I like the genre). So in an effort to review a band I've never […]

Valence – Laser Baron

The curse of the prog, none shall survive.  2/3 of Europe wiped out from the prog, leading to the Dark Ages of music.  The prog is airborne, it may come again, it may poison us all.  Really doubt you got that reference that, and thinking on it now it really doesn't make much sense.  Here's […]

Mention Acumen Nation to most fans of either extreme metal or industrial rock, and chances are good no one’s heard of them, and if they have they, they tend to have very polarised opinions about them. This is mostly due to the fact that […]

Squat Club: Corvus

The previous editor, God rest his tragic soul, sent a bunch of hard copy promos before the address was changed to the current one.  We like surprises here at Deaf Sparrow, those random, lo-fi cassettes that hide treasures within.  So in a box full of this kind of thing, there had to be at least […]
