23rd September 2015 at 7:04 pm

Locrian

I have made no bones over the years about the fact that I adore Locrian, from their earlier noise infused works to their more progressive later releases, they always seem to be able to summon forth a cacophony of pleasing delights. Now they have…

24th September 2014 at 9:39 am

Musk Ox

Woodfall from Canadian neofolk/neoclassical act Musk Ox is a little bit of a rarity in a sea of bombastic pomposity and over the top theatricals that plagues many of the more ‘well known’ acts in this field. Pushing those clichés associated with the genre…

Rosetta

OK, first off, Rosetta were a new entity to me, I had heard the name kicked around by a few people and with Debemur Morti handling the release of this record, expectations were high. On first listen however, I must admit it was a…
