EDENYA –Silence (2020)

Montgeron, Paris, France Private Press 50:10 https://edenya.bandcamp.com/album/silence https://www.facebook.com/Edenyaband/ My Rating 85/100 Every now and then, when working through a pile of albums submitted for review, you come across a project that, for some reason...

Rack & Gridfailure: The Sun Exploded (2021)

RACK and GRIDFAILURE are, based on the descriptions that followed this promo, two artists with a similar approach to their music. Harsh noise textures and dystopian atmospheres is the order of the day, and the main difference appears to be that Rack slowed down...

Bodom After Midnight: Paint the Sky with Blood (2021)

Towards the end of 2019 it was announced that Children of Bodom were no more, and that singer/guitarist Alex Laiho and rhythm guitarist Daniel Freyberg would be forming a new act. Combining with drummer Waltteri Väyrynen (Paradise Lost), bassist Mitja Toivonen...

Art Griffin: The Venus Variations (2020)

This is a side project from multi-instrumentalist Griffin, who provides guitar, bass, keyboards, and programmed drums, and he has been joined by his Sound Chaser colleagues Kelly Kereliuk (guitar) and Victoria Yeh (electric violin). This is a very different release...

Blues Pills: Holy Moly! (2020)

The Swedes are back with their third album, and yet again we are thrown deep into the late Sixties/early Seventies and feel so much better for it! There has been a line- up change since ‘Lady In Gold’ with the departure of Dorian Sorriaux, so Zack Anderson has...

Chancroid: Bestial Perverse of The Anomalies Psychoneurotic (2020)

Who knew that West Java was a hotbed of brutal death metal? Well, apparently it is and here we have the debut album by Chancroid, who comprise Wira (vocals), Hendri (guitar, bass) and Arief (drums). One day I will work out why various extreme bands feel it is a good...

Ekko Park: Horizon (2020)

Although Ekko Park may not be a name widely known outside Aotearoa, even though they have toured the UK, Ireland, and Italy, down here they are recognised as rock royalty and justifiably so. There is no excuse for not seeing them at one of their many gigs, sometimes...

Harmony Glen: Start Living Today (2017)

When I first started playing this, I had to do something of a double take, as this is wonderful soaring feel good folk based very much on Irish and Celtic styles, but this band is from Holland! It is only the lack of Irish accent which allows one to realise that they...

Helena Arlock: Live At The Revolution (2020)

I was reading the latest newsletter from Melodic Revolution Records one day, and came across the story behind this release, which Nick Katona was making available free of charge. I was intrigued by what I was reading, and am always up for free music, so thought I’d...

Honky Tonk Men: Honky Tonk Men (2019)

Here we have another album from Holland where the people involved actually have no idea whatsoever that they are Dutch. Stefan Witteman (Vocals, acoustic guitar), Bert Boot (Vocals, electric guitar), Nico Druijf (Vocals, upright bass), Hans Snitslaar (Drums) and...

WHAT”S GOIN’ ON

  • Cast – Vigesimus
    by Nick Hudson on May 7, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    This Mexican band have two very big hurdles to overcome. Firstly, they are the Mexican Cast, and not the UK Cast. I don’t think I’ve yet talked about this band without having to explain that it’s not the Cast people think I’m talking about. Secondly, those who have actually heard of the Mexican band have [&hellip

  • Blacklist – Superpredator EP / Saul Blease Interview
    by Phil Lively on May 6, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Don’t you just love it when artists take notes that don’t belong in a key and create passing dissonance? I like drums, gritty guitar, distorted bass, quiet bits with piano, soft harmonised backing vocals against a building riff. I like tension from pentatonic escalations… Heavy music is cathartic. Done well, it is a visceral safety [&hellip

  • The Aristocrats – FREEZE! Live in Europe 2020
    by Kevan Furbank on May 5, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    BOING! That’s the sound of my jaw hitting the floor. Actually, it’s more of a clunk. But ‘Boing!’ is appropriate because that’s the name of the record label responsible for this jaw-dropping release. If you hear a more astonishing instrumental album this year I won’t just eat my hat, I will poach my trousers and [&hellip

  • Rob’s FINAL Recommendation Roundup
    by Rob on May 5, 2021 at 11:18 am

    This is my last “review” because, as I know I’ve said, I’ve never enjoyed writing them. To me, music is about exploring for yourself and not letting people tell you what is good and what is shit. Additionally, bands,labels and … Continue reading →

  • Frost* – Day And Age
    by Dave Cookson on May 4, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    “Hello, and welcome to the rest of your life”, the opening line from our narrator, a child-like English voice whose name may or may not be Alice, introducing us to Day and Age, the latest recording from Frost*, and their first full-length effort in five years. I won’t reveal what else Alice has to say, [&hellip

  • Lifesigns – Altitude
    by Graham Thomas on May 3, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    So, Altitude, album number three from Lifesigns, and this one seems important somehow. A new line-up, no chance of touring to promote it, and their staunch refusal to give their art away on streaming platforms all make this a critical release for the band. The good news is that it’s a fabulous album which, if [&hellip

  • Night Bus – Second Trip
    by Jez Rowden on May 2, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Sometimes, jazz is just the tonic you need. We don’t often dip our toes into the purer end of this particular ocean of possibilities, but there’s no reason why we can’t, so here goes. Jazz always works best in a live setting for me, to experience the players sparking off each other and inspiring unexpected [&hellip

  • TPA News – May 2021
    by The Progressive Aspect on May 1, 2021 at 10:00 pm

  • Bryan Beller – The Aristocrats
    by Kevan Furbank on May 1, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    ‘Live in 2020’ – three words we won’t be reading very often. For most musicians, 2020 was the year from hell, when Covid killed touring, their most lucrative source of income now that CDs no longer make any money. A few artists managed to squeeze some dates in before the shutters came down, including instrumental [&hellip

  • Jon Anderson – Animation [Remastered & Expanded Edition]
    by Leo Trimming on April 30, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    There are some albums that REALLY need a second chance with a decent re-release, and Jon Anderson’s 1982 album Animation is one which was crying out for some love and respect, to be presented again with characteristic care and attention, as has now been done by the excellent Cherry Red label. This remastered and expanded [&hellip
