Municipal Waste: Electrified Brain (2022)

It is hard to believe that Municipal Waste have been around for more than 20 years now, and they keep producing crossover thrash metal as if it is a lot earlier than that. Just seeing the name of the band makes me smile as I know what is likely to be on offer, and...

Dark Divinity: Left For Dead (2022) single

Formed in 2017 by drummer Ian Moir, melodic death metal act Dark Divinity have been through quite a lot in the last five years, as not only have they supported the likes of At The Gates, The Haunted, The Black Dahlia Murder and Psycroptic but have already released an...

Ed Waaka: E Kura (2022) single

It did not take long for me to fall in love with this song, probably the first 30 seconds I guess, as there is something about it which grabs hold the listener, puts them in a safe place, and lets the singer bare their soul. Soul, yes, this is full of it in a musical...

Ayla Wesley: Say To Me (2022) single

Normally, when I am reviewing singles for MNNZ the turnaround time we work to is 7 days and it is not unusual for me to work on far tighter deadlines than that, but Ayla was incredibly well organised with the promotion for her second single, and I have been playing...

Tia Ward: Me & Me Too (2022)

This is the debut EP from Hawkes Bay singer Tia Ward, following on from two singles which were released ahead of time, Under Wraps and Paint Dry, both of which are included here. The first thing which the listener notices are her vocals, which are both understated yet...

Tryonics: Fragmented (2022)

Tryonics is the solo project of Hap Richardson, formerly of My Little Pony, Go Victim, and Freezer Child. It is completely a one-man affair as Hap not only provided all the music and vocals but also recorded and mixed it as well. When I asked him for a press release,...

Danica Bryant: Crush (2022) single

Here we have the lead single from Danica Bryant’s forthcoming EP, Ego Death, and if this is fully representative, then that is something to look out for. For a young artist she has already had considerable success, mentoring with Bic Runga while also gaining a support...

Ange​.​Mac + Shaun Garea: Ange​.​Mac + Shaun Garea (2022)

What we have here is the debut collaboration from Ange.Mac and Shaun Garea. Ange.Mac has been making experimental industrial/ambient music since 2006 and can also be seen playing with his thrash/black metal/hardcore/D‐Beat Punk band Bloody Hell while Shaun has just...

Crust: Stoic (2021)

There is no doubt that one of my favourite labels in Russia is No Name, and I was sorry to hear that Anton was imprisoned and fined for being at an anti-war rally. My thoughts are with all the innocents caught up in this as there is going be no positive for anyone,...

Dogs Bite Back: Back? Forward! (2021)

Recorded over three days in July 2019, this six-track 39-minute-long album was released in June last year. The improvisational band came together when Ilia Belorukov (synthesizer, feedback) and Dmitriy Lapshin (bass guitar, effect pedals) started playing as an...
Matt Joe Gow: The Messenger (2009)

Matt Joe Gow: The Messenger (2009)

Matt Joe Gow grew up in the deep south of New Zealand in a town with bad weather and good music: Dunedin. Surrounded by music, he was encouraged to pick up a guitar at an early age, and after traveling the world, Matt moved to Melbourne, Australia, drawn by its...

Matt Joe Gow: Seven Years (2016)

Matt Joe Gow: Seven Years (2016)

Whilst regularly making demos and working on other projects in the studio, it would be 2016 before the next Matt Joe Gow record, ‘Seven Years’, which was released to critical acclaim and was nominated for the Music Victoria Award for Best Country/Americana Album Of...

Matt Joe Gow: Break, Rattle And Roll (2018)

Matt Joe Gow: Break, Rattle And Roll (2018)

After touring and playing numerous festivals in support of Seven Years, Matt returned to the studio in 2018 to record the follow-up, Break, Rattle and Roll. Released to wide acclaim, it went one better than his previous release and was awarded Best Country Album in...

Kreator: Hate Über Alles (2022)

Kreator: Hate Über Alles (2022)

There has been a significant change in the ranks since Kreator’s last album, 2017’s ‘Gods of Violence’, with the departure of bassist Christian Giesler in 2019 who had been there since 1995. However, founder members Ventnor (drums) and Mille Petrozza (vocals, guitar)...

Recitals: Rock Dove (2022) single

Recitals: Rock Dove (2022) single

Recitals are a 7-piece band based in both Te Whanganui-A-Tara (Wellington) and Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland) and comprise Xanthe Rook (bass, vocals), Tharushi Bowatte (trumpet), Carla Camilleri (keyboards, vocals), Olivia Wilding (cello), Christian Dimick (guitar,...

Solace Supplice:  :Liturgies Contemporaines

Solace Supplice: :Liturgies Contemporaines

CD  'FTF Music'  48:51 mins SOLACE TORMENT - Home (weebly.com) Solace Supplice | Facebook Liturgies Contemporaines | Solace Supplice (bandcamp.com) Rating 90/100 If you can imagine a band with the drive and verve of ‘Tangent’, the exhilaration of ‘punk’ mixed with the...

Gwar: The New Dark Ages (2022)

Gwar: The New Dark Ages (2022)

I am not sure there is really anything left to say about GWAR, as since they came to rescue earth as ‘Scumdogs of the Universe’. They may not have had the most stable line-up, but two of the guys have been here solidly for the last 30 years and everyone else has at...

Celeste Music: Beautiful Words (2022)

Celeste Music: Beautiful Words (2022)

Beautiful Words is the latest release from Tauranga-based musician Amanda Sloan, who goes under the name Celeste Music. This five-track EP is under 13 minutes long, and for the most part is based around the vocals of Amanda, accompanying herself on picked acoustic...

Masslands: Forget What You Heard (2022) single

Masslands: Forget What You Heard (2022) single

Here we have the debut single from Hawkes Bay quartet Masslands who feature Orian Green (drums), Ben Liley (bass), Mason McNaught-Blair (vocals, guitar) and Jacob Tait (guitar). They describe themselves as Indie-Rock / Post-Punk, but while I understand the first and...

Gideon Voon: EPsode II. Wanderer’s Path (2022)

Gideon Voon: EPsode II. Wanderer’s Path (2022)

Gideon is of course guitarist with the mighty Shepherds Reign, one of the finest metal acts in Aotearoa, so when I saw a post from him on FB earlier this week where he put up a teaser for a new track I was intrigued. What would a solo piece be like from someone who is...

Becca Caffyn: Stair Kids (2022) single

Becca Caffyn: Stair Kids (2022) single

Here we have the debut single from Hamilton native Becca Caffyn who discovered Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan when she was 15 and has spent the last four years developing her own songwriting and performing style. This song is all about the vocals, which are double...

Killswitch Engage: Live at the Palladium (2022)

Killswitch Engage: Live at the Palladium (2022)

During the COVID lockdowns of 2021, Killswitch Engage decided to play a gig with no audience and stream it. Not only that, the setlist consists of 2019's ‘Atonement’ in full, along with the 2000-released self-titled album in full, which along with some additional...

End Boss: They Seek My Head (2022)

End Boss: They Seek My Head (2022)

There are times when one come across just one song from a band and it immediately means an investigation to discover more about them. That was the case when Lisa from MNNZ sent me a video link and asked if I had heard anything about this Wellington-based outfit? That...

Ester Wiesnerova: Blue Journal (2022)

Ester Wiesnerova: Blue Journal (2022)

There are times when one just looks at a release and hopes that it will live up to the promise of the packaging, and when I opened the envelope containing this the first thing I did was take it to my wife to show her as I was just blown away. This album comes in a...

  • A Different Aspect #83
    by Bob Mulvey on July 4, 2022 at 6:00 pm

  • Bubblemath – Turf Ascension
    by Jez Rowden on July 3, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Received wisdom would have it that Bubblemath take aeons to release new music. Absolutely ages. The faithful left awaiting new crumbs of musical comfort from their Minnesotan heroes after the release of the band’s debut album, Such Fine Particles of the Universe, in 2001 had to wait a full sixteen years for the next transmission. [&hellip

  • Endless Season – Paths and Crossroads
    by Basil Francis on July 2, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    There’s a certain stigma attached to prog rock, isn’t there? When you tell a new person that you’re into prog – and by some chance they happen to know what it even is – there’s a common assumption of “Well, you’re a weirdo!”. If you even try to suggest a song for the party playlist, [&hellip

  • Delvoid – Swarmlife
    by Graham Thomas on July 1, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Another week, another rather tasty musical offering emanating from Norway. This week it’s the turn of Delvoid, from Oslo, and they seem intent on pummelling us into submission with this their third album, entitled Swarmlife. The pummelling refers to their massive riffs and crushingly heavy moments, and those are never far away, but to be [&hellip

  • Nick Fletcher – The Cloud Of Unknowing
    by David Edwards on June 30, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Wonderfully vibrant and expressive second solo album from virtuoso prog rock and jazz fusion guitarist, Nick Fletcher – setting the bar even higher on this release. When Steve Hackett, no less, states that “Nick Fletcher is probably the best jazz rock guitarist in the UK. I consider him an absolute star”, it is reason enough [&hellip

  • Birth Control – Open Up
    by Basil Francis on June 29, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    It only makes sense to listen to Birth with a chaser of Birth Control. While one is a new band playing retro-prog, the other is an ancient group playing… funk, apparently. But are they hip, or hip replacement? I have to say I was astonished when I saw the mighty Birth Control land in our [&hellip

  • Solace Supplice – Liturgies Contemporaines
    by Nick Hudson on June 28, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    The French prog scene is one I think is often overlooked and underrated. For sure, when it comes to the “classic era”, and the almost symphonic form that is often the first thought of many when it comes to how prog sounds, it tends to be the British prog bands that are the giants everyone [&hellip

  • The Aristocrats
    by Jez Rowden on June 27, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    With their latest release taking the band in a different direction, we talk to The Aristocrats about how the new project with the Primuz Chamber Orchestra, from Poland, came about, featuring reimaginings of tracks from the band’s catalogue with an orchestral setting to augment the work of Bryan Beller, Guthrie Govan and Marco Minnemann. They [&hellip

  • Magma / The Utopia Strong
    by Roger Trenwith on June 26, 2022 at 5:00 pm

    The Garage, Highbury, London Friday 17th and Saturday 18th June 2022 Roger Trenwith … and now, over to Philomena for the weather… Only in the UK – or more specifically in the southern half of the UK – could you experience a 20 degree daytime temperature difference from one day to the next over a [&hellip

  • The Bardic Depths – Promises of Hope
    by Alex Driessen on June 25, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    The Bardic Depths is the result of the unlikely collaboration between a multi-instrumentalist living in Lanzarote and a recognized historian from the United States. The Big Big Train Facebook page was the catalyst, the result being a self-titled debut album in 2020. The first album by musician Dave Bandana and lyricist Brad Birzer was based [&hellip
