Venetian Snares – Rossz Csillag Alatt Született (Planet Mu – 2005) All I’ll say is it’s grand in scope and mostly instrumental (except for the cover on track 3 and the pigeon monologue on track 7). If you know, you know. If you don’t, then […]

Inter Arma – Paradise Gallows (Relapse Records – 2016)  From soaring harmonies to roto-tom fills and juggernaut riffs, this album is a pure joy to listen to. I shouldn’t even be covering this album, everyone should already know it intimately. Quit stalling and listen to […]

Cursed – III Architects Of Troubled Sleep (Goodfellow Records – 2004) I don’t usually make a habit of listening to lyrics, unless the vocalist is particularly enunciated, it’s just another instrument to me. But in the case of Chris Colohan, it’s impossible not to feel […]

Full Of Hell & Merzbow (Profound Lore Records – 2004) I’ve never been much into noise music. Controlled chaos, sure. But never noise. So Merzbow just passed me by and the noise moments of Full of Hell just put me off. So I was surprised […]

Horse The Band – A Natural Death (Koch Records 2007) Maybe it’s because I’m getting older, reminiscing and possibly being blind to exciting new talent right under my nose, but I miss the oddball experimental forces of the 2000s. Pushers of the envelope have always […]

Psyopus – Our Puzzling Encounters Considered (Metal Blade – 2007) What do you get when you mix a failed audition for Limp Bizkit (true story, look it up) and Yngwie Malmsteen’s famous ‘more is more’ quote? Guitar athletics and obnoxious songwriting at an olympic level. […]

Nails – Abandon All Life (Southern Lord – 2013) My day to day listening leans heavily on the extreme end of things, maybe that’s why I’m such a placid dude. Either way, lately I’ve had an insatiable hunger for sledgehammer riffing and Nails hits the […]

Burning Love – Rotten Thing to Say (Southern Lord -2012) I’ve been throwing a lot of fairly demanding releases at you, but this is a fun one, as long as you don’t read into the lyrics too much. Vocalist, Chris Colohan let’s his shoulders down […]

The Secret – Solve et Coagula (Southern Lord – 2010) Converge sent me on a path and this record set that path in stone. For an album so full of raw aggression, there’s no shortage of sinister atmosphere either. Tossing and turning between metallic d-beat […]

Ephel Duath – Pain Necessary to Know (Earache – 2005) The word jazz seems to be thrown around a lot in heavy music. Whether it’s as influence or just because saxophone is the flavour of the month. But this band came along with the scales […]
