A multilayered offsetting of experimentation and crushing heaviness.
Forward-thinking, noise-ridden curation.
Review / Plague Years – Circle of Darkness
Excellent riffage with nods to modern and classic thrash.
Album Of The Week / Svalbard – If I Die, Will I Get Better?
A beautiful, cathartic album from stalwarts of the scene.
Review / Coma Wall – Ursa Minor
A haunting dark-folk EP, released eight years after recording.
Review / Next Life – Guru Meditation
The greatest grindcore computer game you’ve ever played.
Review / Modern Technology – Service Provider
Bass, drums and bitterness: noise for the now.
Review / Vacillations – The Child Septentrion Danced for Two Days
Freak-folk and black metal, together at last.
Album of the Week / Ulver – Flowers Of Evil
What you’d expect from Ulver, in that you didn’t expect it.
Review / Deafkids & Petbrick – Deafbrick
Breaks, noise, psych? You’ll want to get a crate in for this one.
Review / Jupiterian – Protosapien
Brazilian doom as thick as Pre-Cambrian sludge.
