Paganus – S/T – CD 2008

7th April 2008 at 9:12 am

Paganus - S/T - CD 2008

The first thing I’ll say about this release is it’s certainly a grower, with more going on than first meets the eye. The subtly of this album became apparent to me by the amount of spins I had to give it to acquire any…

Palefeather – S/T – CD 2014

28th January 2014 at 8:48 am

Palefeather - S/T

The unexpected is a great thing. I must admit when I heard Palefeather‘s description (“Pink Floyd with a bit of post rock”) I was basically expecting bog standard post rock with a few noodles, but what we have here is a very languid pure-prog…

Palehorse ‘Harm Starts Here’ CD 2013

2nd July 2013 at 9:03 am

Palehorse

AH the NINETEEN-NINETIES. Not only the last decade to have a proper name, arguably the last decade when rock music made significant strides forward (or backward, in a good way). From Kyuss stretching out smoking time in the early part of the decade to…

Paleo – S/T – DD 2014

10th August 2014 at 10:13 am

Paleo - S/T - DD 2014

Imagine a mammoth stuck in tar, that’s about how Paleo describe themselves. This pure cavemen-sludge formation from Austin, Texas unleashes five tracks of heavy, sticky music that will grab hold of you. It won’t let you out easily. It’s pretty hard to get some…

Pallbearer ‘Foundations Of Burden’ CD/LP/DD 2014

14th August 2014 at 10:40 am

Pallbearer

Pallbearer’s Sorrow and Extinction emerged as the sleeper (metal) album of 2012, eventually finding itself at the top of many end of year best lists and burned into the minds of listeners new to the scene; unfortunately, the signature strengths that define the core…

Pallbearer – S/T – CDEP 2010

Pallbearer - S/T - CDEP 2010

When I was about 7 or 8 the original Star Wars was released at the cinema and I got taken to see it. I vividly remember as a little kid being overawed watching the Imperial craft slowly move over the screen, gradually filling it…

Palms – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2013

20th June 2013 at 11:03 am

Palms-ST

Isis and Deftones have both had an influence of modern rock music in their own ways and to differing degrees. For his part as frontman of Deftones, Chino Moreno was a genuine breath of fresh air during the mid to late 1990s when the…

Paradise Lost ‘Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)’ 10″/CD/DD 2013

30th October 2013 at 9:29 am

Paradise Lost

In the past I’ve always been a little wary of purchasing “rarities” releases. Even when it’s coming from a band as prolific as Paradise Lost, the problem with what is basically a B-side compilation is there’s always a risk that instead of being the…

Paul Catten ‘Themes And Variations For Strings And Electronics’ CD 2011

16th November 2011 at 9:00 am

Paul Catten

In another life, Paul Catten would perhaps have been horribly disfgured during the explosion of a machine to communicate with the dead, brought about by his own flawed calculations, rescued by mysterious Tibetan monks and perpetually encased within a suit of armour in order…
