Discography Review: Metallica – Garage Inc.

So, it’s a lot of fun to play covers of your favorite songs. Really. But you can do it in the rehearsal space. With your pals. Have some beers and play some covers. It’s fun! You do not have to record it. And IF you do, you do […]

Discography Review: Metallica – St. Anger

A severely lousy record. A frontal stomach splash. A pathetic attempt to combine sounds and tones in hope that it will remind of music. The band was in a state of disintegration during the recording and the disharmony between the band members is clearly heard through the speakers, […]

Discography Review: Metallica – Death Magnetic

Since sometime in the 90’s, Metallica has been a sitcom of wrong decisions. Sometime back then they should have had hired an editor with total freedom of action who was given the mandate to exercise loving violence on the band’s confused extravagances. Because if you removed some incomprehensible […]

Discography Review: Metallica & Lou Reed – Lulu

Seriously speaking, this is probably the worst thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life. Sure, all bands can drop a bad record and come back. But how do you come back after something like this? It’s completely incomprehensible how no one in the band, or the record […]

Mastodon – Hushed and Grim

I have a special way to choose which bands to give a chance and listen too, and which not. Because I really haven’t time to listen to all music out there. If I’m not sure if the band will deserve my time but if the genre and style […]

Every Time I Die – Radical

I would like to launch a new genre epithet: Riff Music. Doesn’t have to be more difficult than that. And there’s many types of riff music, some that I really like and some that I can’t hear what’s the purpose with it (like the malignant tumor called ”djent” […]

Krallice – Demonic Wealth

How could I forget about Krallice? A dear friend of mine played some songs from this album recently and he let me guess which band it was. After many wrong guesses I nailed it – it was sweet old Krallice! Out with a new album! And it’s great! […]

Fire-Toolz – Eternal Home

I really admire and respect this epic interfusion of metalcore, IDM, progressive electronic, prog rock, vaporwave and jazz. But I don’t really feel like listening to it very much. Even for a genre mix masochist like me this is a bit all over the place. Maybe I’m getting […]

Slayyyter – Troubled Paradise

A lucky thing for Slayyyter is that she can write good pop songs, because all in all Trouble Paradise is pretty silly. But I’m weak for good hooks, fun, sexy lyrics and self confidence – as everyone should be. Throatzillaaa (yes, that’s the name of the song), Venom, […]
