Show review: Bohren und der Club of Gore @Bremen

Show review: Bohren und der Club of Gore @Bremen

There are touring-happy bands and… the others. Boren und der Club of Gore are a role-model for the second category. The Ruhrpott-based band does shows only on rare occassions and I honestly can’t remember when they did their last tour. Their show at Bremen was […]

The new Revocation album leaves me unimpressed, but…

I really dig their new video and the vinyl version of it. The video features scenes of their tour life, mixed with live performance shots. It gives a very good impression of the circumstances a medium sized (in terms of success) metal band faces on […]

Review: Cruel Hand – The Negatives

Review: Cruel Hand – The Negatives

Cruel Hand needed four years to come up with a new album – and four years can be a long, challenging time for young adults and a band. “The Negatives” proves that a band can integrate new ideas, new influences, new role models, and yet still […]

Talking about dedication…

Talking about dedication…

This is truly amazing! This is why music, and underground music in particular, is still appealing to people.     PSSGS – s/t EP 5 EUR When I think back FUNERAL DINER were one of those bands that got everything started. You get across something […]

Stunning live footage of Oathbreaker released

Oathbreaker, one of my favourite bands, played a US tour a few weeks ago. Their show at La Puente, CA was filmed and shows the ferocity and intensity of the band.     Plus: one can find a bunch of really cool live pics on […]

Svårmod – Bli Mörk – new video online

Svårmod – Bli Mörk – new video online

The dude in Sunwolf released a video for his black metal project Svårmod, which reminds me of the visuals bands like Neurosis, Ulver, and Dark Tranquillity use on their live shows. One sees cut scenes from movies, featured in the style of old-fashioned television screens. […]

First video of My Project Ghost is really interesting

First video of My Project Ghost is really interesting

My Project Ghost is a new three-piece postcore band who released an interesting new video a few days ago. I am a sucker for b/w videos and even though My Project Ghost chose an approach that resembles movies from the early age of cinema, the […]

The Wacken Foundation, Controversial, and the state of the music industry

The Wacken Foundation, Controversial, and the state of the music industry

Controversial released a video for their track “Habitat” yesterday. It’s a nice one. Not exceptional, but good work and gives an idea of the band’s power. The interesting part, though, is the information that the Wacken Foundation helped to produce the video, which made me […]
