Album Review | Ruff Majik | Tårn
Tårn delivers on so many fronts: it’s groovy, it’s heavy, and it’s catchy, a winning combo. Though Ruff Majik has never been as heavy as to be labeled a doom metal act, with each album they grow darker and more brooding and their sound here is a far cry from the stoner rock sounds heard on their debut, The Bear.
Album Review | LATITUDES | Part Island
Where some music reflects on loss, Part Island embodies it and causes nostalgia to well up in your throat
Album Review | Venom Prison | Samsara
Death metal with thrash, slam, and hardcore influences, Samsara harbors an affinity for progressive writing that is both technical while also being engaging.
Album Review | Moon Tooth | Crux
Crux is an undeniably unique album. Compositionally, it is exceptionally crafted and a breath of fresh air within modern rock music. However, I find myself simultaneously loving and hating parts of the album and generally that feeling happens at the same time.
EP Review | Panopticon | The Crescendo of Dusk
We reach a lull as the abrasive yet alluring wall of sound is broken by swirling keyboards and reverb-drenched guitar. This respite is accompanied by visions of lush, green, cold forests that seems to pass by as if in some sort of fevered dream.
Album Review | Frozen Soul | Encased in Ice
Brutal, crushing death metal, riffs that you can’t help nodding your head to… Though Frozen Soul might not be redefining the death metal genre, they definitely know how to do it right.
Album Review | Pissgrave | Posthumous Humiliation
This sense of being pounded with a brick in your face does not end until you either put off the album or manage to make it to the final track.
Album Review | Candlemass | The Door To Doom
This album is just filled with so many great moments and while the writing manages to respect the time-honoured tradition of Candlemass’s well-known sound, the band really brings something new to the table with this release.
Album Review | Rotting Christ | The Heretics
When listening to Heretics a few key words came to mind, those being: heroic, brooding, reverend and dare I say, heavenly at times.
