Spirited, Cathartic, Harrowing.
Stub Reviews: March 2021
Here’s a heap of songs you need to hear.
Video Premiere | Batholith’s “Familiar Paths to Obscure and Forlorn Peaks”
shoutout all the hiking metal punks
Album Review | Hazing Over | Pestilence
Call the ambulances in advance cuz these are some massacre riffs
Album Review | Cara Neir | Phase Out
Unique, yet not quite a hit.
Album Review | For Your Health | In Spite Of
Like listening in on a jewelry store robbery
Album review | Nansarunai | Ultimul Rege
Granular and galvanising.
Album Review | Portrayal of Guilt | We Are Always Alone
The sound of a sacrificial offering burning to the bone.
Album Review | The Ruins of Beverast | The Thule Grimoires
A sophisticated yet still characteristically unhinged masterpiece.
Album Review | Gatecreeper | An Unexpected Reality
Palpably violent followed by bewitchingly desolate.
Album Review | Eyelet | The Devil Shining Out Your Eyes
The Devil himself must’ve produced this record, cuz it’s too damn good to not be sinful
Album Review | The Smashing Pumpkins | Cyr
A long but rewarding climb up a mountain of synthesizers.
