Randolph & Mortimer New Track “Existing, Not Living”

Posted on by Vassago in Electronic, Music | Leave a comment

In an age where electronic music as a genre is so obsolete with more and more bands claiming its precious tag (but in reality releasing the repetitive known to all electronic body music), Randolph & Mortimer new release is welcomed as a balsam to my wounded ears. For those not aware with the band, Randolph & Mortimer – who got their name from the movie “Trading Places” where two broker brothers do a ‘Prince & Pauper’ move with actors Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy. The names of these characters intrigued them and felt that it suited the message they wanted to express in my music” as they recently admitted on an exclusive interview with Decompression magazine – are playing electronic music mainly influenced by the late 80s and early 90s with influences from bands such as Nitzer Ebb , Ministry and if I dare to say Control Bleeding.

Enjoy their brand new “analogue” video, released moments ago.

Posted on by Vassago in Death Metal, Doom Metal, Music | Leave a comment

Rippikoulu Ulvaja CoverWell well if this isn’t the biggest surprise to date. The long anticipated third release from finish Death/Doom metal band Rippikoulu is set to be released in two weeks time!

Those not aware with the band probably didn’t realise that I am sarcastic since “Ulvaja” is indeed the band’s third release in….well 21 years, and to be fair noone saw it coming (how could you afterall).

Rippikoulu became known through a demo tape released back in 1993 “Musta Seremonia” resulting in the creation of some sort of cult/fanatic death/doom metal fan base, then noone ever heard a thing for roughly 20 years.

What did the Battlefield Hardline leaked trailer show us

Posted on by Vassago in F.P.S, Gaming | Leave a comment

As we were waiting impatiently for the next Battlefield release, a version of a seven minute trailer video was leaked titled “Hardline”.

Ten seconds into the video and it was as if I were watching the new “Grand Theft Auto” trailer. Things became a bit clearer around 00:30 when I noticed all familiar maps and guns from the latest BF4 release, which is cool but the new concept is all about war on crime (!?) instead of war on a Battlefield. I have to say right off the bat that I was not sure that a Cops vs Criminals concept was really missing from the Battlefield blockbuster, especially one where the story line is about the ethical dilemma of good cops thinking of turning bad the moment they face a mountain of drug stock worth a couple of million pounds. This would be a hard one to pull off and I can already visualise people being hesitant as to if this is a step towards the right direction or not for Battlefield. I will leave this out for the time being, as it will come down to personal preferences (some people will be happy, others won’t, and some will buy and play it anyway).

Autoclav1.1 ‘ten.one.point.one‘ Album Cover

Autoclav1.1 is the brainchild of Tony Young, an authentic IDM/Experimental enthusiast who made his very first steps in the scene through his contribution in various music outlets as well as the release of his own fanzine “Black Harvest”. For those who knew Tony, it was only a matter of time before he would step up more actively in the music scene and start releasing his own work, you wouldn’t expect anything less from a person who dedicates most of his time to music either as a writer or a DJ.
