Torche ‘Meanderthal’ CD 2008

12th September 2008 at 9:22 am

Torche

It would be fair to say that Torche are confusing buggers. As a reviewer it’s always nice when a band hands you some convenient reference points on a plate. How often do we see lines like “…galloping Maiden style rhythms” or “…doomy Sabbath riffs”…

Jesu ‘Lifeline’ CDEP 2007

Jesu

With the rate of his output, it’s clear that Justin Broadrick is deeply committed to Jesu and he has outdone himself again with ‘Lifeline’. The EP easily stands up to any of Jesu’s previous material and the four tracks flow seamlessly, gliding organically and…

15th February 2007 at 8:57 am

Zozobra

The latest side project from Cave In’s Caleb Scofield. Edging between sludge and an almost space rock feel, this debut album could not be more aptly titled. Distorted riffs being thrown to the background by Caleb’s singing, and then complimenting the grungy feedback layered…

Jesu – S/T – CD 2004

Jesu - S/T - CD 2004

I really didn’t know how I was going to start this review as the first time I gave Jesu’s debut full length release a spin I was left totally speechless with the feeling that I’d just listened to something very very special indeed. For…
