Post black metal French band Decline of the I are back with their fourth album, which sees them start a new trilogy. Their first three were inspired by the works of French surgeon and neurologist Henri Laborit, while the new set are based on the output of Danish...

A Radical Sun: Love Shakes (2021) single

A Radical Sun: Love Shakes (2021) single

Everyone in Auckland has been incredibly frustrated with the lockdown which has now stretched past 100 days, impacting everyone inside the borders. Obviously one group which have been unable to work are the gigging musicians, which has seen some of them go into the...

On Tick: Nothing New (2021)

On Tick: Nothing New (2021)

{On Tick} was formed by brothers Brendan (vocals and drums) and Aidan O'Loughlin (vocals, guitar), out of the ashes of their previous band, Evil Tomato. They decided to work as a rough and raw punk duo, adapting some of the older songs to their new style, a few of...

Henika: Strange Creatures (2021)

Henika: Strange Creatures (2021)

It is safe to say that I listen to more varied music than the average person, and I have no idea how many albums I have reviewed over the last 30+ years but it is many thousands, and I have written well in excess of a million words on the subject. This means I am...

Sol3 Mio: Coming Home (2021)

Sol3 Mio: Coming Home (2021)

Gramsci: Ourselves (2021) single

Gramsci: Ourselves (2021) single

I first came across Gramsci last year when they released the amazing album Inheritance, which was then followed up with a theatre performance which was stunning by all accounts (I was gutted not to be able to make it). But I am very late to the piece indeed, as...

Ivy Gold: Six Dusty Winds (2021)

Ivy Gold: Six Dusty Winds (2021)

There is something visceral about the blues, something which grabs the heart with emotion which is far more felt than logical. It is a form which guitarists often fall back into, and such is the case here when Sebastian Eder (Avalon) started playing some blues...

Korpiklaani: Jylhä (2021)

Korpiklaani: Jylhä (2021)

I have had mixed feelings about Korpiklaani over the years, as while they have long been favourites of the mass media and are certainly the closest a lot of denim and leather wearing longhairs will ever get to folk, to me they can sometimes lose their core purpose. I...
