Ggu:ll ‘Dwaling’ CD/LP/DD 2016

24th May 2016 at 6:34 pm

Ggu:ll

Ggu:ll have finally released that long awaited full length, titled Dwaling. Its title would translate as ‘error’, but it feels slightly more like being lost in the dark. In the darkness of Ggu:ll there might actually dwell monsters. That’s what their album, presented during…

Ommadon – S/T – LP/DD 2016

6th May 2016 at 6:56 pm

Ommadon - S/T

Boris With Merzbow

Gensho is a collaboration album, or rather it is two separate albums which the auditor is advised “are intended to be played at the same time at varying volumes so that the listener can experience their own “gensho/phenomenon” every time”. 50% of Gensho (one…

24th April 2016 at 2:23 pm

Nadja

Reviewing a record by Nadja is not an easy task. If you just look at their back catalogue its frightening how much the duo releases and pretty much all of it is good. So what to do about Sv then? The latest of their…

Gnaw Their Tongues ‘Abyss Of Longing Throats’ CD/DD 2015

5th January 2016 at 6:54 pm

Gnaw Their Tongues

Having seen Gnaw Their Tongues live this past October, I can honestly say that we’re talking about one of the most intense acts in heavy music today. It’s not just noisy, it is harrowing and disturbing, almost like the soundtrack to the darkest nightmares…
