Dee Snider We Are the Ones
If it weren't for the acoustic rendition of "We're Not Gonna Take It" half way through the album, We Are the ones could be seen with more empathy; here's the thing though, with the exception of the self-titled cut, and "Head Like a Hole", an instant hit for the dance floors worldwide (the assessment does not come in spite), the mentioned classic is sadly the highlight in terms of vocal performance, with closer "So What" merely being a secondary affair. What's more troubling, Twiste Sister's calling card of a song is situated amidst Snider's half-hearted attempt in sounding relevant to the modern music world.
Ljain Klofnar Tungur
The occult/lofi/ambient character of Klofnar Tungur will take you back to those ancient times where black metal relied (much) more on random impulse, and (much) less on elaborate design. While the style of this Icelandic outfit safely files under the quote "organized ritual chaos", both mentioned ends meet to form a downright interesting experience. Their other EP released this year is also interesting. Stream:
Kylie Minogue Kiss Me Once
Solid album, albeit it lacks the inventful song writing of some past Kylie Minogue material; truth be told though, who's expecting Kylie Minogue to front the genre anew? Favorite tracks: I Was Gonna Cancel, Sexcercise.
Nanochrist Freedom Through Extinction
Industrial metal made to work as a casual listen only. Favorite track: Prosecutrix. Stream:
Ashen Divinity Digital Sisyphus
Consisting of handful of seasoned musicians within the Croatian scene, Ashen Divinity deliver a solid slab of death/thrash metal, bearing discrete pockets of melody. Stream/"name your price" download:
Sumerlands Sumerlands
Sumerlands had made clear they were a band of great merit even from the The Guardian demo, so it was merely a matter of time before they would resurface, this time around with their self-titled debut. Sumerlands repackages the three songs of the demo with a handful of new cuts, the one being better than the other. The album's monolithic style, a stance situated between early '80s metal and hard rock, would have anyone more ready for a snooze fest than a celebration of those times and music styles; and yet, Sumerlands thrive with their "less is more" arrangements, their discretely displayed instrumental aptitude, and their th
Vektor Terminal Redux
If Terminal Redux is commendable for something, is its sheer intensity and the band members' technical proficiency throughout, and those are no small feats. While these attributes may be enough to land instantaneous critical acclaim, they don't necessarily guarantee the production of truly memorable material; moreover, combined with a prolonged album duration, they can mask a lack of diversity song-writing-wise, and that's where the album falters considerably. First 2-3 songs take no prisoners but the same frantic, linear pattern of riffs-over-riffs-over-riffs is blindly; performing this material live will certainly be a blast, but V
