“Tvke It On The Rvn 666”
Album Review | Alcest | Spiritual Instinct
Although I have always been a fan of ‘shoe-gaze’ and ‘post’ styles of black metal, Alcest’s recent release leaves me thoroughly wanting.
Album Review | Spotlights | Love & Decay
Spotlights use tone and layering to carve sonic mountains on their latest EP.
#102 | Album Review | Tempel – Tempel
There is a candid sense of liveliness and joviality that pierces Tempel’s compositions. Much of the record leaves an impression of a hard/classic rock aesthetic, however, the way they dig their heels into metallic qualities, carried by vociferous rasps, makes the album feel retro and simultaneously progressive.
