Decoded Feedback – Combustion

decoded feedback

Decoded Feedback was always one of my top favourite bands, though I could never understand why people are not that familiar with them or why clubs do not prefer their songs. Objectively, Decoded Feedback is original, powerful, melodic and aggressive at the same time and to my opinion one of the best bands of the […]

Second Lass – Try To Paint A Fitful Love

SL

This Italian gothic rock band has managed to create a very interesting album. "Try to paint a fitful love", is the title of the album. First of all I would like to point the very nice cover of the album. In my opinion the artwork of an album is very important and it should be […]

Displacer – Moon_Phase

MP

From Toronto, Canada, signed to the French electronic label M-tronic, home to such artists such as Mlada Fronta and Dither, Displacer delivers intelligent, dark melodies, full of rich soundscapes and enchanting electronics. The softer tracks remind me of Boards of Canada but let’s leave it at that, because there is so much else here. Some […]

Foetus – Love

FOETUS

Mr Thirlwell is back with a new, quite painful release. Most industrial purists disagree with his enthronement in their cold, heavy pantheon but most of these guys never heard of  Monte Cazazza. Glad I got that out of my system.Back to the record. Considering  myself an industrial purist and a great fan of his work […]

Dither – Summit

Summit

Starcry – One Night Stand

ONE NIGHT STAND

This is a rather wicked sort of review for a rather wicked sort of album, for it is accomplished by the wrong reviewer. However, on very rare occasions one finds music that doesn't sound like anything we've already heard before one thousand times. On half of these occasions one is drawn to the "new" thing […]

G-Nox – Ventre

g-nox

Built as a single sonic event, Gerome Nox's "Ventre" unfolds like a weatherman's nightmare. It's like getting caught in an isolation tank with a box full of howling air. Cut off from any sensory input from the external world, all you can hear is the wind; all that invades your head are the sounds which […]
