Lazy Fifty: Sitting In The Shadows (2024) single

“Sitting In the Shadows” is the fourth single off Lazy Fifty’s upcoming album ‘Neighbour of the Beast’. This album is the second collaboration between Adrian Athy (vocals, guitars, bass) and renowned producer Greg “not my problem” Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Tom...

Brutalism: Solace in Absurdity (2024)

“...a seething mass of chaos, of endless gaping maws, slathering tongues and thrashing limbs, chattering teeth and sibilant whispers of lunacy and obscenity. There is no silence, there is no peace, there is no sense or order. With all laws of structure and reason...

BlissBliss: Horizons (2022)

Over the last 35+ years I have reviewed many thousands of albums, but while I cover a wide variety of genres, it must be said that soul and pop are not the styles one would normally come across when reading my works. It is also not a style I expect when thinking of...

Deicide: Banished by Sin (2024)

It is strange to realise that Deicide will soon be celebrating their 40th anniversary, being formed back in 1987, with bassist vocalist/Glen Benton and drummer Steve Asheim still around. There have been a few changes in guitarists over the years, but Kevin Quirion has...

Gareth Turner and Simon Care: Two’s Up Two (2024)

In 1997, two of England's’ most famous folk melodeon players got together for a laugh to record ‘Two’s Up’. Simon Care (Albion Band/Banter) and Gareth Turner (Little Johnny England/Phil Beer Band) musical careers were interlinked and often crisscrossing, as Simon...

Banter: Heroes (2024)

Banter are back with their fourth album, and it is easy to see why they have been making such a name for themselves on the UK folk scene, and I have no doubt that if I was still living there that I would be following these guys around on tour as this is stunning from...

Under A Spell: Freya (2023)

Here we have the second full-length album from Texan metal act Under A Spell, and when I saw the press release raving over the singer and saying they were for fans of King Diamond I knew I had to hear what it sounded like. It commences with a riffing guitar in one...

Ukes of Tomorrow: Seconds Of Our Lives (2022)

When I started running Feedback in 1990 I soon found myself deep in the underground, not only in the prog scene but investigating metal and many other styles of music where people were just not getting the publicity they deserved. I was also soon writing for the...

Shakin Street: Scarlet. The Old Waldorf August 1979 (2024)

I must confess I have known of this band for years but this is the first time I have come across their music. I was 19 when Manowar released their debut album, ‘Battle Hymns’, and like many interested in the metal scene in the UK we thought they were great. I did some...

Ravenhall: Brother (2024)

Ravenhall were formed by guitarist Joe Ravenhall and singer Chris Brebner in 2015. I have been fortunate enough to hear their debut EP and live album, and at long last they have released their first full-length studio album, and a belter it is too. In some ways they...
Matt Joe Gow & Kerryn Fields: I Remember You (2024)

Matt Joe Gow & Kerryn Fields: I Remember You (2024)

Matt and Kerryn may now be residents of Melbourne in Victoria, but they both grew up in Aoteaora, Matt on South Island and Kerryn on the North. They are both well-known in their new home, with Matt’s ‘Between Tonight and Tomorrow’ winning Music Victoria’s Best Country...

Matt Joe Gow: The Woodshed Sessions (2024)

Matt Joe Gow: The Woodshed Sessions (2024)

I have been fortunate to see Matt play in concert a few times, twice as totally solo and one with Kerryn Fields and his Dead Leaves bandmate Andy Pollock. This acoustic session finds him with just Andy and long-time Dead Leaves member Katya Horrop, recording live in...

LONG EARTH (SCOTLAND) An Ordinary Life

These Scottish veteran musicians released "The Source" in 2017, an excellent debut album that set the foundation for a huge upgrade on their sophomore 2023 work "Once Around the Sun" , a thoroughly engaging set of songs that did the rounds in the progressive circles,...

ESP PROJECT (UK) 22 Layers of Sunlight

The Rogue needs to immediately correct a massive injustice, putting all pretenders for review on a temporary hold, before being unceremoniously hauled in front of the PROG chief justice and condemned to listen only to all the Magma releases for the rest of my hellish...

VYÖNI (NORWAY) The Tripoint

Some interesting little tidbits to get the appetite going, VYÖNI being a small town in Northern Sweden, near the Finland border. The Tripoint is a semi-obscure area, very well known to military historians in particular, as in the extreme north of Norway three borders...

BAKULLAMA (USA) Sleepers

One cannot survive just on polished, finely chiseled progressive rock albums all the time, and I know for a fact, that many aficionados actually enjoy the rougher edged, at times raw options available. Even the under-produced thinner sound can lay bare the purest of...

PARALLELS (SWEDEN) Exodus

Not to be confused with a similarly named US Band and their Yes tribute Awaken, this veteran Swedish trio opt for a more accessible sound, most definitely in the Neo-Prog vein, with tinges of AOR. Lead vocalist and bass player Ulrik Arturen, Keyboard man Forbjorn...

NINE STONES CLOSE (UK) Diurnal

After a long and self-imposed silence, guitarist and composer Adrian Jones found a great amount of inspiration, some good and some bad, upon extracting himself like billions of other humans from the claustrophobia of Covid 19 sequestration. This forced introspection...

NORTHODOXIAN (ESTONIA) same

Finally, I get to focus on this interesting project from Estonia, a country for which I have had a lengthy fascination that I cannot really explain, other than some distant Finno-Ugric connection beyond mind or thought, perhaps genetic, surely historic. Let me...

Living State: Stalker (2024) single

Living State: Stalker (2024) single

Auckland-based Living State continue to release catchy singles and having seen them play a few times I know they power through the live environment as well. Musically they focus the arrangements around singer Marissa who is building her confidence so that while we are...

Hideous Divinity: Unextinct (2024)

Hideous Divinity: Unextinct (2024)

Between 2012 and 2019 Italian technical death metal act Hideous Divinity released four full-length albums, but it has taken five years for them to return with their latest, which is probably due to a certain pandemic, plus the line-up changed with the loss of both a...

Foncedalle: Foncedalle (2024)

Foncedalle: Foncedalle (2024)

This is the debut album by French act Foncedalle, who comprise Marius Mermet (guitar, vocals), JD Mimouni (drum machine, synth) and Clément Maltassat (bass, vocals, synth), they describe the album as a rock band making electronic music as opposed to the other way...

Crucial Velocity: Crucial Velocity (2023)

Crucial Velocity: Crucial Velocity (2023)

I must admit the reason I grabbed this album was due to some of the people involved as it sounded interesting. This band originally commenced as a project between songwriter Nate Bauer (guitar, bass, keyboards) and veteran mixing/mastering engineer Gary Long, owner of...

The Contractions: 1980 (2024)

The Contractions: 1980 (2024)

The Contractions (I don’t know why there is no “The” on the cover, but everything I can find on them has “The”) were an all-female punk trio from San Francisco featuring Mary Kelley (guitar & vocals), Kathy Peck (bass & vocals) and Debbie Hopkins (drums &...

The Brat: Straight Outta East L​.​A. (2017)

The Brat: Straight Outta East L​.​A. (2017)

I get offered a lot of albums to review on a daily basis, with most of the emails being filed in case I need to reference them later, but without downloading the music. For some strange reason I decided to grab this set from a band which broke up in 1985, releasing...

Sam Ross: Live at the Mira Room, Vol. II (2023)

Sam Ross: Live at the Mira Room, Vol. II (2023)

In many ways this feels like the beginning of a whole new world, and I am sure this is not the last time we will come across an album like this. On one level here we have a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable jazz EP by the trio of Sam Ross (piano, Fender Rhodes)...

Red Hot Shame: You Can’t Make Me (2023)

Red Hot Shame: You Can’t Make Me (2023)

Red Hot Shame is an indie rock group from a Northern California where the mainstay is singer-songwriter Xeff Scolari who works with a fluctuating line-up of friends. This time around it included frequent collaborators Steven Pitsenbarger (vocals, percussion), Ryan...

Kariti: Dheghom (2024)

Kariti: Dheghom (2024)

Back in 2020 I reviewed the debut album by Kariti, ‘Covered Mirrors’, and she is finally back with the follow-up. Kariti (карити), which means 'to mourn the dead' in church Slavonic, is a Russian-born artist now based in Italy and this release sees her moving away...

    by Basil Francis on July 15, 2024 at 5:00 pm

  • Andy Nixon – The Waterline
    by Rob Fisher on July 13, 2024 at 5:00 pm

    I grew up by the sea, happy, carefree hours spent playing on sandy shorelines, excitedly scrabbling over rocks as the waves noisily threatened frothy sprays of water, and exhilaration from the wind dancing in your hair as you scamper along…

    by Peter Hilton on July 12, 2024 at 5:00 pm

  • Patchwork Cacophony – Hourglass
    by Tony Colvill on July 8, 2024 at 5:00 pm

    An expected surprise. I thought having bought the Broken Parachute collaboration, that a Ben Bell solo effort might bring another choice of similar highs. It doesn’t but it doesn’t need to, it has its own perfectly adequate choice, different as…

  • The Flower Kings – Live In Europe 2023
    by Alex Driessen on July 7, 2024 at 5:00 pm

    At the end of 2023, The Flower Kings (TFK) toured Europe and the UK. In the Netherlands, at the Pul in Uden (October 27) and the Boerderij in Zoetermeer (October 28), we had the pleasure of catching the Swedish progrock…
