Album Reviews

Tristania - Darkest White

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I know I delayed this album presentation but good things always take a little more time than usual, and apart from me working in the slave pits, I wanted to write something more than the ass kissing reviews simply because “Darkest White” is not just another TRISTANIA album; it is probably their defining one. What impress me the most is that it took them just one album to create a stepping stone for other bands to step on. It took them one album to integrate a different female vocal range with more kinks and not just create music around it and that is what impressed me the most.

Thaw - Thaw

Every time I listen to a Polish artist or a band I take my hat off to them, and I’m not talking only about Metal bands. Poland may have a tradition in Black and Death Metal, but it is also the homeland of many great Jazz, Classic and Film Score composers. So whenever I’m getting my hands on a polish album, I know that it will be difficult to disappoint me. And, luckily, the self-titled debut album of the Polish band THAW was no exception.

Witch Cross - Axe To Grind

WITCH CROSS is one of those bands that once delivered a mythical debut LP and later on fell into oblivion. “Fit For Fight” (1984) is the kind of an album you should definitely have in your collection if you consider yourself an old-school Metal fanatic, needless to say. Now, nearly three decades later, the Danish band offers a new album and shall probably look around for the recognition that never came in the first place.

Nunslaughter / Antiseen - Split

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

There is no way for a 7” split release to fail and the reason is quite simple: 7” split releases contain one or maybe two songs in each side (yes, I am talking about vinyl) from bands that have a distinct direction when it comes to music genre. I mean, you are getting exactly what you have paid for and most importantly there are no fillers included simply because there is no space for them. Plus, splits are cheap and some of them can quickly become a collector’s item.
