I love the latest The Ocean song

Did you check out “Devonian: Nascent”, the latest song off the upcoming The Ocean album “Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic”. Even though the song, which has Kataonia-head Jonas on guest vocals, clocks in at eleven minutes, it never lets down in intensity. The Ocean evolve their sound (as much […]

Review: Fragments Of Unbecoming – Perdition Portal

Review: Fragments Of Unbecoming – Perdition Portal

I’ve never expected to buy, listen, or review another Fragments Of Unbecoming album. The band released three pretty cool death metal records in the early 2000s, but I’ve lost track of them after “Chapter III”. Now the band is back with “Perdition Portal”, which took […]

Review: Craft – White Noise And Black Metal

Review: Craft – White Noise And Black Metal

It took me a while ’til I managed to give “White Noise And Black Metal” a full spin. Craft took several years to write, create, and evolve their latest output, turning it into a dark and twisted piece of music. It’s one of those records […]

Did you check out the new Being As An Ocean video?

Did you check out the new Being As An Ocean video?

It’s nice. Yeah, nice is a half-hearted compliment, but I couldn’t come up with more: “Know My Name” is a catchy, melodic song with hardcore roots, and while it delivers on the lyrics, the video is… okayish. Just watch it yourself:  It’s the classic “band […]

Make distros a threat again

Make distros a threat again

  Evil Greed has evolved from a minor distro to a major player in the european distro scene and business, despite all (now severed) connections to Wolf Down. Always looking for new ways of promoting their business, the guys now found a new way: invite […]

Old love, new scars

Old love, new scars

I’ve never expected Pig Destroyer to release another album. “Prowler In The Yard” is among my all-time favourites in the grindcore genre, and even “Book Burner” – even though it lacked the ferocity of the band’s earlier work – made it into my personal top […]

Turbonegro, we need to talk

Turbonegro, we need to talk

20 years ago, Turbonegro released “Apocalypse Dudes”. It’s a classic and undoubtely the best and most influential album of the norwegian punks. The following albums were kinda ok, but never came close to the level of chuzpe, charisma, and catchy songs. With the departure of […]

Ultha deliver again, this time via Century Media

Ultha deliver again, this time via Century Media

Ultha inked a deal with Century Media not long ago. The first result of this deal will be the release of “The Inextricable Wandering” in October. The band released a 14ish minutes long first impression of the new material, which totally blew me away. “The […]

Limbs? Never heard of them before?

Limbs? Never heard of them before?

The human race fucked up this planet. Very hard. We don’t seem to understand that we can’t continue our way of life, if we don’t want to start our own extinction very soon.  On the other hand, the human race created countless wonders, with music […]

Beartooth reveal another new song of “Disease”

Beartooth reveal another new song of “Disease”

… and it leaves me cold.  Don’t get me wrong, “You Never Know” is a well-written song, but it doesn’t click. It doesn’t feel like a proper Beartooth song – and maybe the flaw can be found in the way it was written:  “You Never […]
