favorite bands
Dream Machine The Illusion
Dream Machine come from Austin, Texas, the town where everyone plays in a band, and on their debut offering, they deliver the kind of '60s psychedelic rock that's bound to resonate for quite a while, with those old fashioned pairs of ears out there. Dream machine aren't heavy on the heavy side of psych, but they more than make for that "loss" with grooves all too evident throughout the eleven cuts of the album, and a certain lightness that hints at those times, where everything seemed possible. Favorite song: All For A Chance. Stream:
Warrant Louder Harder Faster
It could've been better, it could've been worse, at the end of the day it's neither of the above, but it's a fun glam rock listen when played in the background.
Danzig Black Laden Crown
This could be good at least, but unfortunately, it isn't. Some rhetorical queries; could it be that the gloomy sound
does not fully support the music or conceal the readily perceivable deficiencies of the album? Could it be that
Danzig's voice, despite its enhanced low-end pitch with age, is also "tired" most of the time or is it the blatant
laziness/blandness of most arrangements? It kills me to write this, but Danzig anno 2017 sound like a vintage,
yet worn out Camaro running on gas fumes. Favorite songs: Devil on Hwy 9 kind of stands out...
Doomocracy Visions & Creatures of Imagination
Two years after their good debut, Greek-Cretians Doomocracy return with a sophomore album that insists on certain attributes showcased therein, while it improves on others. Band's singer offers a standout performance, with his flawless, clean and high pitch excellently communicating the gloom encountered in the lyrical content. Apart from inherent presence of doom metal, the strong affiliation to classic metal is prevalent throughout, and while it gives a sense of quaint warmth and familiarity, it is also a firm pointer of attrition in terms of originality and intensity. In the latter respect, things might get more interesting if the band bra
Arakara Shadow of Violence
What is an undisputed given for Arakara is that they know how to thrash with the expected intensity; not only that, their axemen are gun blazing with respect to the guitar leads which densely populate this EP. So where does Shadow of Violence comes a bit short? Well, Arakara aren't too keen on concealing their influences which include both East and West Coast thrash, with the vocalist delivering a die-hard Hetfield/Billy worship throughout. Favorite track: Shadow of Violence. Stream:
The Night Flight Orchestra Amber Galactic
Slick, barely memorable upon completion of any given listening session, but desperately needed '80s pop/hard rock throwback, made from metalheads for metalheads and non-metalheads alike. Favorite track: Space Whisperer
Mastodon Emperor of Sand
Mastodon round up the edges of their innate deliberations, and wind up with an album that's as entertaining as it is lacking compared to its critically acclaimed predecessors. Favourite track: Show Yourself.
