Album Review: Disasterina – LA’s Most Disastrous Drag Queen

Disasterina is a drag queen, performer, and musician based in Los Angeles, California. Her new album, LA’s Most Disastrous Drag Queen, lives up to her over-the-top reputation. Released by Entelodon Records, this album is true to the spirit of electronic dance music. Disasterina’s song structures are ridiculously catchy. This is a throwback to old school techno, capturing the riotous party vibe of classic house music. Sprinkled with elements of humor, the music is varied … read...

Band Profile – Burials

Hailing from Portland, OR, this death metal outfit sounds solemn and somber.  Although their bleak music is dissonant, it is profound enough to resonate with like-minded pessimists. The punishing rhythms are insane, offset by melodic virtuosity and atmospheric ambience. The contrast between their acoustic sensitivity and their electrified rage is a paradoxical embodiment of the band. The deep, rolling melodies slam their weight around mightily. These menacing, trippy sludge concoctions are booming with thunderous beats … read...

Before … read...

Album Review: Salt For Knives – An Acute Sense of Mortality

Comprised of rhythm guitarist/vocalist Frank Green (Grinkai), along with Gareth Niles (Rome Incarnate) on lead guitar and bass, Salt For Knives are a Colorado based death metal outfit. Their new record release, An Acute Sense Of Mortality, is a follow up to their debut album, Conglomerate of Misery. This bass-heavy album has a slow-burning, sludgy groove. An Acute Sense of Mortality is a bloody slab of dissonant death metal, served raw with a side of … read...

Album Review: Despite Loyalty – Despite Loyalty

Album Review: Despite Loyalty – Despite Loyalty

  Dark, morbid, and sexy, this self-titled album is quite the debut. Combining elements of industrial music with electro-goth, Despite Loyalty is bass-heavy, fetishized music in the vein of Ministry or even Rob Zombie. Rhythmic hooks, funky beats, distorted guitars, and macabre lyrics converge into a beast that would sound just as good on the dance floor as it would in the mosh pit. Headbangers from any side of the spectrum- from metal to EDM- … read...

Album Review:  Red Light Cameras – Shiver

Like Stevie Nicks or Karen O, Amanda Machon of Red Light Cameras is a badass rock vixen with a powerful but distinctly feminine voice. Their newest album, Shiver, is defined by bouncy pop beats with a hard rock edge. The song structures are simple but nice. Playful and sassy, this album is a seamless fusion of rock attitude and pop appeal. The tunes are super catchy, making Shiver a perfect party album. Although highly entertaining, … read...

Album Review: Ol’ Dagger – Bobcat Dynamite

Album Review: Ol’ Dagger – Bobcat Dynamite

Holy fucking hell, these vocals will kill you. David Ahern-Seronde (Yar, Oscillation, Obelisk) expands his skills ever further with a wider range of high pitched screams and low growls. The guitars and drums are symbiotic in their primitivism and raw power, reminiscent of early Death and Dark Angel. The rhythm often loses itself in a decadent groove, which results in some sinuous bass lines and drum riffs. This album superimposes sludgy lethargy … read...

Album Review: Fleshgod Apocalypse – King

Album Review: Fleshgod Apocalypse – King

Italian quintet Fleshgod Apocalypse are masters of symphonic technical death metal. Their newest release, King, is pinnacle of elegance, with music as sophisticated and powerful as its title.  Crunchy blast beats in the guitar and drums open up into sweeping orchestral arrangements. The heavily distorted electric guitar, with its melodic leads and shredding solos, merges seamlessly with the symphonic instruments. Similarly, the twinkling pianos are exquisitely integrated, while the chorus creates a soundscape of epic … read...
