ALBUM REVIEWS


Tenebrous Liar- Turn It On [Review]

Self-imposed desolation and funereal industrial noise, ambient and krautrockian delirium.

Some thoughts by our goblin reviewer on Dream Theatre and the genre that bothers the editor of this site.

★★★★☆ It is audaciously psychedelic and sonically estranged. It is hypnotic almost to the point of being repetitive, but only almost! […]

★★★★☆ An entirely instrumental record full of slow, deep echoey rhythm and somber piano melodies […]

★★★☆☆ incredibly melodically driven, solid instrumental tightness, musicality, and, above all, an ear for the ear-worm […]

★★★1/2☆ An attempt by those who have experienced alternative states of consciousness to communicate their psychic explorations without relying solely on linguistics…Like time-travelling shoe salesmen in close proximity to unearthing universal truths, White Manna show you something else […]

★★★★☆ Although many bands channel retro sounds as a cynical marketing tool, Kobadelta have dived deep into the cold waters of a gothic-psychedelic darkness and returned to the surface clutching a black and shimmering musical pearl […]

★★★★☆ Pop songs with intricate arrangements, unusual sounds creating lush soundscapes and twisted rhythms along with a soothing, soft singing voice concentrating on themes of love, desire and breakup […]

★★★★ Songs that have the potential to sweep unnoticed beneath your eyelids and grow into beautiful tumours. A balance between the beautiful and the profane […]

★★★1/2☆ Annabel Dream Reader is an album so drenched in reverb one can’t help but wonder if that’s what they use to style their hair with […]

★★★ Name it prog rock, psychedelia, metal, “warfare music” or the most violent version of Mars Volta´s alumni, but Tiny Fingers has an impressive ability to evoke destructive passages that are morbidly satisfying […]

★★★ propagating electronic malady over guitar-orientated machismo while North Korean school girls in the audience, free in their conformity, dance in unison; flying red handkerchiefs; mourning the dead […]

★★★★ allusions to a mutant cockroach oligarchy, ruling a post-Ballardian netherworld where a binary-programmed slave drum orchestrates the working day […]

★★★★ These guys entrust their audience to sink deep into bitter-sweet hallucinations, which bark and bite at optical nerve endings, seducing the listener into a milky sleep, soused in feedback sweat spurned on by ecstasy nightmares […]

★★★½ Experimental pop with a dark atmosphere, deep, echoey production, lots of piano, somber sounding acoustic guitars and all kinds of strange shimmering keyboards […]

★★★½ Although obvious comparisons can be made to popular female punk bands such as Slant 6 in terms of lyrical content as well as style, Primetime deserve to have this EP looked at individualistically. Their dissection of social anatomy and sexual politics is almost charmingly idiosyncratic […]

Genesis – The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway: Strange instrumentation, no real choruses, no hooks and a weird shrieking voice […]

Despite the album was considered by the majority of the music press as “the worst album ever made”, Lester Bang considered Lou Reed´s Metal Machine Music (1975) as “the greatest record ever made in the history of the human eardrum”, while Lou said that with this infamous collection of noise, he invented heavy metal, grunge, noise rock and everything related to feedback-like perversion. And, maybe he´s right…Enjoy one of the best music reviews ever written […]

REVIEW ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED FOR GIGSLUTZ – Powerful melodies, allusions to The Smiths, pop culture references, a touch of glam, wistful acoustic guitars, memorable and eloquent verses, brilliant jingles, humor combined with darkness and introspective moments a la Viva Hate, Bona Drag, or Vauxhall and I […]

Based in the not so warm coast of Brighton, these kids (between 18 and 19 years old) fascinated with reverbs and barricades of noise, certainly wrapped up some sonic tension embellished by impenetrable riffs and post-punk-like monotonous drums […]
