Reverorum Ib Malacht “Ter Agios Numini” album review and soundcloud excerpt

I must give credit for discovering REVERORUM IB MALACHT to longtime comrade John Gossard (Dispirit, ex-Asunder, ex-Weakling)! Strangely enough, following his words of praise back in the early 10’s I haven’t instantly listened to any of their records. This is Read more

INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

NECROBLOOD “Collapse of the Human Race” black/death metal album review and bandcamp stream

Parisian old-school metal band NECROBLOOD have penetrated violently my musical microcosm back in 2011. They have done so with the best credentials that an underground metal band could possibly have according to my book: a debut self-titled 7”EP released by Read more

Bitcrush “Shipwrecked” on Bandcamp

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

“Shipwrecked” is nearly an hour of lost, salvaged or otherwise forgotten bitcrush tracks. “Glacial” and “A Place of Exits” being the only two previously commercially released. “270 degrees” is only in its demo form as the original was lost in a hard-drive failure. A alternative version of “Song For Three” from “in Distance” and a ‘Collapse’ B side “The Decent” are never before released. All other tracks are remastered versions of tracks previously offered for free on the old bitcrush website. Pay what you wish… Even nothing i suppose.

Mamiffer & Circle - Enharmonic Intervals (for Paschen Organ) CD review 

This is a very interesting release by two different bands: Mamiffer known for tidal drones and Circle who are known for their rock sounds and primal beats. If what you expect is a combination of these two musical elements mentioned above, let me tell you right now that you will be disappointed. Their sound signatures such as the comforts of austere piano sketches and solemn nocturnes as well as the wallop of repetitive rhythms and metallic kitsch is nowhere to be found and largely absent. As with Mamiffer’s recent collaboration with Locrian, Enharmonic Intervals (for Paschen Organ) is anything but a predictable merger of two bands’ established visions.

Author & Punisher – Women & Children LP/CD Review

author & punisher

Industrial as a genre is maybe the most used and misunderstood term the last few years in the music underground scene. Truth be told, there are a lot of bands calling their music “Industrial” – a statement that leaves me cold as I don’t consider bands that use dance EBM rhythms to be Industrial, even if they claim to be! So, I decided review on Author & Punisher as I think it’ a very nice addition to the Industrial scene and “Women & Children” is an LP you should definitely pay attention to…..
