Total Fucking Destruction

The Music Box, Manchester 06/02/07 The Magpies had already started tonight’s gig at the Music Box when we arrived, so I only got to see half their set. They played chaotic and energetic grind and what I could see of them through the crowd,…

Pelican ‘City Of Echoes’ CD/LP 2007

27th February 2007 at 8:54 am

Pelican

The third full-length LP from Instrumental sludge/post-hardcore outfit Pelican. ‘City of Echoes’ seems like even more of a departure from their doom roots. Moving firmly into a more post-metal territory; much in the vein of Red Sparowes and the ilk. I’m not sure what…

Zozobra ‘Harmonic Tremors’ CD 2007

Rwake ‘Voices of Omens’ CD 2007

1st February 2007 at 9:24 am

Rwake

In my opinion, Rwake were on the right track with their previous release, ‘If You Walk Before You Crawl, You Crawl Before You Die’, but they seemed to have strayed slightly from that design. It’s hard to say whether or not this will be…
