Review: Screaming Females – All At Once (but also Rose Fountain, kind of)

I was introduced to New Brunswick-based indie rock/punk band Screaming Females through their their 2015 release Rose Fountain, which left very strong impression on me. The band’s brand of straightforward, catchy, yet punchy songwriting appealed to me, as did the guitar work, which is more complex than what is usual for the genre, courtesy of… Citește în continuare Review: Screaming Females – All At Once (but also Rose Fountain, kind of)

Best album you’ve never heard of: New Bloods – The Secret Life

New Bloods is a Portland based post-punk featuring Adee Roberson on drums, Cassia Gammill on bass and Osa Atoe on violin. Yes, violin. Their debut album, The Secret Life, which came out in 2005, is a severly underrated, unique and challanging effort. It is a refreshingly new take on punk that the genre, (like all… Citește în continuare Best album you’ve never heard of: New Bloods – The Secret Life

Arcspire’s „Relentless Mutation” is everything you could possibly want a tech-death album to be

So… technical death metal. Much to the reader’s probabile dismay, I don’t really know enough about this genre to be able to talk about in great detail. Aside from the bands that anyone who has even the vaguest idea of what tech-death is knows (Cynic, Atheist, Necrophagist), I couldn’t name any other major players within… Citește în continuare Arcspire’s „Relentless Mutation” is everything you could possibly want a tech-death album to be

Review: The Orwells – Terrible Human Beings

I discovered this album through YouTube recommendations, as people do these days, and this is an important fact, because, while I liked it a whole lot more than I expected from a video I clicked on at random (it qualifies as something as something one would call an „pleasant surprise”), I didn’t love this album.… Citește în continuare Review: The Orwells – Terrible Human Beings
