Review: Sun Worship – Elder Giants

Review: Sun Worship – Elder Giants

Sun Worship are a succesful black metal outfit from Berlin… well, when one thinks in underground scales. Their “Elder Giants” album sees a repress on vinyl, this time on white vinyl and with the same fantastic production value that the first press offered. Let’s get […]

Review: Fjort – D’accord

Review: Fjort – D’accord

I finally bought “D’accord”, the new album by german harcore/ screamo outfit Fjort, on vinyl. It’s on clear vinyl, which is not my favourite vinyl version (calling it colour would be ill-fitting), but anyway. The production value is excellent and the cover art really nice, even […]

Musings about Naglfar

Musings about Naglfar

Spotlight: Deafheaven

Spotlight: Deafheaven

Yes, they are totally en vogue. Yes, they appear to be extremely focused and maybe a tad weird. But still, “Sunbather” is a hell of a black metal album. Deafheaven worked harded to reach the status they have nowadays, no doubt about that. One can […]

Review: Opeth – Pale Communion

Opeth have left their metal days behind with “Heritage” and apparently don’t want to change that with their new album “Pale Communion”. In fact, they focus even more on progressive and classic rock.
