IGORRR – HALLELUJAH (Ad Noiseam – 2012) I showed this to a mate one time during a long car ride and we laughed the entire way at how wildly absurd the whole album is. Igorrr shows no concern for genre or ‘good taste’ (read: rule […]

SUMAC – WHAT ONE BECOMES (Thrill Jockey – 2016) Remember Isis? No, not that one, the other one. Unless you’re a total cave dweller, you should already be on top of this band. Or maybe your cave has sweet wi-fi and you already know this […]

Ulcerate – Everything is fire (Willowtip Records – 2009) This now trio from New Zealand sounds like if Isis played death metal. I once saw them play a show in my hometown only to the support bands and bar staff. They’ve gone on to do […]

Breach – Kollapse (Burning Heart Records – 2001) This one was a total curveball for me. I’d never heard of this band as some of you might have living in Scandinavia. But Breach were and still are something I can’t completely explain, especially on this […]

SWEET COBRA – EARTH (Dark Operative – 2015) I still don’t know what to call these guys, and that’s okay, if not preferable. These guys came to me at a time when I needed respite from the heavy realities of life, but I couldn’t stomach […]

OBLIVIONIZED – LIFE IS A STRUGGLE, GIVE UP (Secret Law Records – 2015) I’m a big fan of power-trios, especially ones as vicious as this. Drums, guitar and vocals. It doesn’t sound like much, but when you’ve got rapid-fire shred doubled through a bass amp […]

LOOK WHAT I DID – ATLAS DRUGGED (Modernist Movement – 2010) I have a habit of falling down dark rabbit holes when it comes to music, but every now and then an album comes along that reminds me not to take things too seriously and […]

Botch – We Are The Romans (Hydra Head – 1999) The often forgotten grandfathers of jagged metallic hardcore. Right up there with The Dillinger Escape Plan, these guys split off after this swan song to form bands including Russian Circles, Minus the Bear, These Arms […]

GENGHIS TRON – BOARD UP THE HOUSE Relapse Records – 2008 I get the feeling that the reason these guys disappeared after this masterpiece of an album is because they went back to where they came from – the future. The opening track offers a […]

Orgone – The Goliath Self released – 2007 Remember MySpace? Before it’s eventual end, there was an explosion of bands like Job For A Cowboy, but buried deep in all of that noise I found this band. Overly ambitious and pretentious. I was sold. I […]
