Unearthly Trance

The three horsemen of the great unveiling known as the apocalypse emerge from the depths of the abyss for the fifth time to unleash another dire proclamation of doom upon mankind, and, well, it ain’t pretty. Unearthly Trance are emphatically NOT a band to…

Voivod ‘Infini’ CD 2009

24th July 2009 at 9:09 am

Voivod

When guitarist Piggy succumbed to colon cancer in 2005 during the piecing together of the Katorz album it pretty much looked as though it was game over for Voivod. It seems the big man had other ideas. After his death it turns out he…

Disfear ‘Live The Storm’ CD 2008

26th August 2008 at 9:03 am

Disfear

What does the term Punk Rock mean these days? It’s a genre so watered down by lightweight, pop star-aspiring posturing, and if were honest it never meant much in the first place anyway. The Sex Pistols were just a 70’s boy band assembled by…

Rwake ‘Voices of Omens’ CD 2007

1st February 2007 at 9:24 am

Rwake

Minsk ‘The Ritual Fires Of Abandonment’ CD 2007

1st February 2007 at 8:55 am

Minsk

It seems Minsk has found the direction that suits them perfectly. This is a much more matured release compared to their last LP, ‘Out of a Center Which is Neither Dead nor Alive’, not that you couldn’t hear the progression that was already apparent,…

Up from the cold dark depths comes New York hatemongers Unearthly Trance with their latest misanthropic opus ‘Trident’. Each track on this release is a dark and twisted journey, with a new level in song writing being attained by the band. The CD begins…

Buried Inside ‘Chronoclast’ CD 2005

27th December 2005 at 9:04 am

Buried Inside

I was fortunate enough to witness Canada’s Buried Inside’s blistering live performance when they toured the UK a few weeks back, which is where I picked up this, their second album ‘Chronoclast’ released on the seminal label Relapse Records and man, what a release…
