Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi – Berliner Vulkan (Polish Synth Noir)

  Wasn't sure what to expect with this one what with the blue skull hipster thing and the fact that Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi (WTZ for short) is listed as, lol, black metal and experimental on some shit sites. I've also seen vain attempts at calling this "post-black metal" but you just can't toss that around any old […]

Blood Machines (Vapid Sci-Fi Horror Synth Cheese)

  Those uninitiated in synthwave and unfamiliar with one of the forefathers of the genre, Carpenter Brut, can now be exposed to it all through bloody 80s nostalgia with the release of Blood Machines on Shudder. The three episode “epic” by Seth Ickerman involves the discovery of an entity who escapes her spaceship, turning into […]

Well, I actually analyze what I review, and that takes time, and hey, who doesn't mind a publicity push after the fact? I can fly through albums pretty quickly, but for films and video games, there's more […]

DRIFT. – Black Devotion EP

A welcome release from the pain of banal musicians.  So long have I dealt in things dark, yet constantly weak in the sense of suck. So typical for extreme music, rely on aggression.  Must the dark always be as such?  No, sometimes delicacy is needed, something ethereal and frail.  Like a gaunt bride under a […]

Black Wing – … Is Doomed

So uhhhh yesterday I went hiking to Wallace Falls State Park in Washington. Completely surreal. Felt like at any moment, some horde of Uruk-hai were going to take away the ring bearer. All you could hear was the waterfall and some distant birds chirping occasionally. I only saw two fucking animals - a squirrel and a […]
