Die Kreatur - Panoptikum

I can’t help but gravitate towards all things Greek and this includes words that seem to be of Greek origin. This is a good enough reason for me to explore about some little story hidden behind. In the case of Germans DIE KREATUR, the beloved child of OOMPH!’s Dero Goi and LORD OF THE LOST’s Chris Harms, the trigger was the debut release’s title, “Panoptikum”. I wonder if the title is a reference to Jeremy Bentham’s prison design with circular tiers of cells that serve the purpose of central observation without being seen (you can learn more about this by searching for Foucault’s theory of Panopticism). Add to this the fact that the 1920s and the stories about all kinds of freaks and creatures lurking in the dark was a source of inspiration (like for many writers throughout the years), and the title will seem like a perfect fit. But what does the music inside Panoptikum” sound like?


War Cloud - Earhammer Sessions

Have you ever noticed one or two record labels that almost everything they release fits your music preferences? Ripple Music does the trick for me, and sometimes it feels that I share the same taste for music with these guys. I mean, I trust with eyes closed that nine out of ten of Ripple Music’s new releases will be a winner for my playlist, plus their love for vinyl is one-of-a-kind and they really know how to treat LP releases, offering rare test pressing LPs and all those goodies that you’d like to have in your collection (to play and not just as dust collectors). Anyway, this presentation isn’t about Ripple, but their Oakland Hard Rock acquisition of revelers WAR CLOUD and their thunderous, (kind of) live album “Earhammer Sessions”, so let’s get right to it.


Wysdom Given - Into The Night

If you can keep your cool during these bizarre days and if the only challenge you face is how to feel your additional free time, then music can be the ultimate haven. Especially, when there is a lot of music going around, making it impossible for one to stay on top of things. Even though getting your focus on well-known or well-promoted bands is easy to do (no digging into the pile to find a gem), it is not suggested. At least from those who have been spending lots of time listening to music. Getting acquainted with young bands offers the chance to experience the rawness of music driven by the hunger of the lineup to create new music and make a name out of it. WYSDOM GIVEN belong to this breed, with “Into The Night” being their first studio offering, comprised of three tracks enough to ignite your (/my) interest.


Black Rainbows - Cosmic Ritual Supertrip

Fuzzy Psych attitude straight from the ‘70s? Check. Doom-occult / Stoner Rock sound? Check. Heavy, powerful drumming and smokin’-soaked vocals? Double Check. Rome’s BLACK RAINBOW are back in discography with album ‘numero-otto’, and they keep doing what they know doing best; producing high-quality high-energy fuzzed-out Psych Rock that often feels like a punch in the face. So, put your guard up and let’s see what “Cosmic Ritual Supertrip” has in store.
