Balimaya Project – Wolo So

A lot of rhythm, horns and a strong jazzy flow all through the album. A really uplifting crossover album that mixes Londons local jazz scene with the traditional folklore beats of the Mandé people of West Africa. Being a drummer myself I truly enjoy the rhythm sections and […]

Hypocrisy – Worship

I idolized Peter Tägtgren when I was younger and Hypocrisy was one of my favorite bands. I was obsessed with aliens, Area 51 and The X Files and loved everything of Hypocrisy. Especially Osculum Obscenum, Abducted and The Final Chapter. The latest years I haven’t followed them much […]

Plebeian Grandstand – Rien Ne Suffit

I feel like avant-garde kind of isn’t avant-garde any more, you know? So many bands mix their metal with noise, electronics and various intricacy nowadays. Kind of like that you’re more original if you DON’T have any tattoos. It’d been better with a pure noise album or a […]

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, […]

ALBUM OF THE MONTH: Agnes – Magic Still Exists

I give you Agnes! And she gives us Magic Still Exists – 35 minutes of disco pop magic. Every beat, sound, melody and chorus hits you at the right spot.  It’s been almost 10 years since Agnes last record came out, and out of nowhere she releases this […]

Alien Weaponry – Tangaroa

The debut from Alien Weaponry, Tū, was really likeable and that they where literally kids were just a fun thing, the album was great no matter of their age. Tangaroa is a bit fragmented and bumpy but when it’s heavy it’s really heavy and when it’s groovy it’s […]
