Todd Mosby: Land of Enchantment (2023)

Matt Smith’s World: Into The Light (2023)

I must confess that I am sent a lot of music which can take time to get inside, whether it be avant-garde, technical death metal, jazz or prog, so sometimes the ears relax into a smile when they realise what is being played can be enjoyed the first time through...

Madre Vaca: Knights of the Round Table (2023)

When I was young, I was fascinated by the stories of King Arthur, Galahad, Guinevere and others, and I am sure this is why I named my first GSD, Merlin. Then of course came Rick Wakeman and his astonishingly ambitious and incredible first two albums, and from then on,...

Mac Gollehon & the Hispanic Mechanics: Bite of the Street (2023)

Trumpeter Mac Gollehon is one of the most in-demand musicians around, having played on literally thousands of records, including more than two hundred gold and platinum albums since the 1970’s, including his decade-plus run in Duran Duran. He’s widely known for his...

Demons of Noon: Death Machine (2023)

Colin Carter: Tracks In Space (2023)

Colin Carter: Tracks In Space (2023)

It would take ages to list all the bands and musicians Colin has been involved with in the last 50+ years, but many will recognise his name from being co-founder of Flash with Peter Banks. Five years on from his debut as a solo artist, ‘One’, he is now back with this...

Aeternus: Philosopher (2023)

St. Madness: Last Rites. The Final Blessing (2022)

St. Madness: Last Rites. The Final Blessing (2022)

Even though I am seemingly incapable of remembering the names of people I see every day, I do have this weird ability to look at a band name and know if I have ever reviewed them in the past. So when I was offered this release, the bells went off, and a quick trawl...

Speech Act Theory:  Speech Act Theory (2023)

Speech Act Theory: Speech Act Theory (2023)

Speech Act Theory is a project by New Zealand producer and musician Pete Hickman which allows him to explore his vulnerable side, putting his insecurities out there for all to see. Musically this brings together elements of Alternative, Shoegaze, Electronica and pop,...

Sigir: Rainmaker (2023)

Sigir: Rainmaker (2023)

Although Finnish quartet Sigir were only formed in 2019, three of the four had previously been in Ritual of Terror together so already knew how they played so consequently this feels like a far more polished outfit than one might expect. Paavo Luttinen (bass), Eetu...

Russ Spiegel: Caribbean Blue (2023)

Russ Spiegel: Caribbean Blue (2023)

On this album Russ Spiegel (electric and acoustic guitars), Jim Gasior (organ), and Lucas Apostoleris (drums) are joined on some tracks by multi-Grammy Award winning trumpeter Brian Lynch and Grammy nominated saxophonist Tim Armacost along with trombonist Javier Nero,...

Paul McLaney: As The North Attracts The Needle (2023)

Paul McLaney: As The North Attracts The Needle (2023)

Over the last few years I have been fortunate enough to have been able to hear Gramsci’s two most recent albums, ‘Inheritance’ and ‘The Hinterlands’, so I was quite surprised to hear that Paul McLaney had decided to release a solo album. I was even more taken aback...

Mike DiRubbo: Inner Light (2023)

Mike DiRubbo: Inner Light (2023)

DiRubbo is back with his tenth album as band leader, this time with a new quartet featuring organist Brian Charette, drummer Jongkuk Kim, and guitarist Andrew Renfroe while of course he gives us alto sax. There is an obvious and important bassline throughout, but I am...

Lynch Mob: Babylon (2023)

Lynch Mob: Babylon (2023)

Here we have the eighth album from Lynch Mob, the first since 2017’s 'The Brotherhood', and apparently is the last one as George Lynch has decided to call time on the band after 35 years. Mind you, there is an 18-month long tour to get through first so anything could...

Frozen Wreath: Mea Culpa (2023)

Frozen Wreath: Mea Culpa (2023)

Everything about this release screams old school atmospheric black metal from the logo through the album art and the obligatory black and white promo photo taken in a forest. The only thing really missing is snow, but these guys are from Hungary and not Scandinavia,...

Felonie: De S​è​ve et de Sang (2023)

Felonie: De S​è​ve et de Sang (2023)

One-man Black Metal bands can be quite hit and miss, as for each one that works there are many that totally miss the mark, but this debut never comes across as the work of just one guy plus a session drummer. What we have here is a side-project from Swiss musician...
