At The Gates lost me with “To Drink From The Night Itself”

Make no mistake: I fucking love At The Gates. Their early works got me into Death Metal and I totally love “Slaugther Of The Soul”. When I had the chance to see them live and later to attend their fantastic, legendary show at Wacken 2008, […]

BOSSE-DE-NAGE post first track of “Further Still”

Released in late 2017, “Hiss Spun” by Chelsea Wolfe received overall positive reviews and feeback. Always an amazing artist – in the truest sense of the word – and dancing on borders, Chelsea Wolfe took a big step forward and created an album full of […]

New Converge stuff

New Converge stuff

Seems I missed a few memos on this one, as the release of “Beautiful Ruin”, a four-song-EP by Converge, caught me totally by surprise. Recorded during “The Dusk In Us” sessions, this completes the release of all their recorded material from that time period. The […]
