7th June 2015 at 2:02 pm

Galley Beggar

LOVE LOVE LOVE this fucking thing!  Galley Beggar’s new release, Silence & Tears is good, real good. Now, for you young metallers, it may not be your cup of tea…yet. I say that because this is quite a departure from what you’re probably used…

Gandhi’s Gunn ‘Thirtyeahs’ CD 2010

2nd February 2011 at 9:08 am

Gathiens

Well let’s get that first hurdle over with, Gathiens are post-metal! It’s a term that once inspired excitement and anticipation at the chance to hear something genuinely original, back when Pelican and Mono were carving the niche that so many bands have since diluted….
