Neurotech Evasive
Neurotech have infused a good deal of melancholy in a sub-genre of dance music (trance) that was designed to induce the quite opposite spectrum of sentiments; Along with the soothing ambience and the discrete, yet ever present industrial touch, Evasive comes as one of the few, really interesting proposals for electronic music anno 2015. Favourite track: there's a handful of them but the melancholy of "The Resurface" always gets to me. Stream/"name your price" download:
Tau Cross Tau Cross
A collaboration between members of more (Amebix, Voivod) and lesser known (Misery and War//Plague) heavy/punk rock/metal outfits, the self-titled Tau Cross album does keep the appearances; Unfortunately, that's all there is to it, as beyond a certain point, songs sound same-y... Stream:
Spectral Wound Terra Nullius
Contrary to the usual affiliations of the black metal scene within the American Continent, Canada's Spectral Wound have endorsed the old school Scandinavian black metal ethics. In that darkness (sic), Terra Nullius may not come as innovating, yet its spite and franticness will surely keep it from wearing off any time soon. Favourite track: A Noble Rot. Stream:
Onirik Casket Dream Veneration
If we are to believe the issued-in-Bandcamp, press release stating that in the albums issued before Casket Dream Veneration, Onirik were merely an average black metal outfit from Portugal, then this album constitutes an unprecedented step of progress. At first glance, what's a display here is doomy, melodic black metal (in the vein of demo-tapes-era Thorns, Ved Buens Ende and the like) that comes as seemingly inadequate in terms of diverse song structures. However, Casket Dream Veneration earns its share of replay value, through the hypnotic/misty and recurring effect of the guitars, which may hint at the aforementioned outf
Thor Metal Avenger
Thor sound like they are satirizing every cliche about "epic metal"; truth is however, that they don't. In a nutshell, here's what Metal Avenger has in store; Standard arrangements - AC/DC meets early Judas Priest - support vocals soaked in falsettos, singing overly simplistic - and quite often hilarious - lyrics. The aforementioned said, the album safely files under the quote "average albums that are worth listening".
Intronaut The Direction of Last Things
Slightly but definitely better than the previous album, Intronaut sound stale regarding their last three full-length releases. Sure, the jams are relaxing, the atmosphere is cool, but the songs kind of wind up in the same direction, with the exclusion of "Fast Worms" which, in turn, shamelessly hints at Valley of Smoke. On another, rather relevant note, the performance and texture of the clean vocals in here, would make Valley of Smoke infinitely better.
Intronaut Habitual Levitations
In their attempt to differentiate themselves from Valley of Smoke, Intronaut invest more on more subdued, "progressive rock" song structures and, with all analogies accounted for, end up sounding as pretentious as their late '70s counterparts. Also, the clean vocals continue to be as passable as those in the preceding album. A low flight for Intronaut, at least from where I'm standing.
