favorite bands
Sleepin Pillow The Past is Already Here
Six years after Superman's Blues, Sleepin Pillow return with an album in which their characteristic style of folk/electronic/post/rock is soaked in the gloom and mischief that stems from a struggling country on all thinkable counts. Favorite tracks: Life On Mars, I Hate All Gods, The Past Is Already Here. Stream:
Tar Hag Elder Cloak
Solid stoner/sludge/doom metal that's perhaps too affiliated to the genres' core descriptions. Stream:
Pain of Salvation In the Passing Light of Day
Paraphrasing a quote from Confucius, the glory of this band and its main-man, lies not only in past triumphs, but also in rising when circumstances of entirely different context, conspire otherwise. And what a rise this is, as an essentially new band delivers an album that's up there with Entropia and Remedy Lane, although the blind emulation of mentioned predecessors, is avoided at large. Interested listeners are encouraged to track Pain of Salvation anno 2017 at the intersection of progressive rock lyricism with the atonal nihility of modern/nu metal. Favorite song: Full Throttle Vibe, for obvious and not so obvious reason
Breed of Bacchus Oculus
All the samples introducing each cut of Germany's Breed of Bacchus' sophomore album, are voiced in their mother tongue, so I almost wish I was aware of the language and its slang in before, so as to appreciate the absolutely effective thrash/grind-core enclosed herein, even more. Wishfull thinking about language learning aside, Oculus has the clout to build a virtual grindcore moshpit inside your head, for the excess steam to be blown off. Favorite track: Bonapapst Syndrom. Stream/"name your price" download:
Sleaford Mods English Tapas
While it's more than obvious (and commendable) that Sleaford Mods are having a blast here, it might not be the case for everyone else.
Overkill The Grinding Wheel
Overkill is as Overkill does and The Grinding Wheel, not better nor worse than its immediately previous affairs, is no exception. The band's take-no-prisoners ethic in performing its material is sine qua non as always. What's slightly different here is the dual-mode affiliation to downright classic and modern metal (in terms of sound) forms alike.
Last Command Last Command
Last Command are a three-year-old band, yet their self-titled LP pictures them going through their musical infancy. Nominally, Last Command is a thrash metal band, but the urge to adopt different directions (mainly from more extreme metal genres) makes the album sound jaded. Moreover, some good riffs and ideas cannot compensate for the standard arrangements and the uneven vocals. Stream:
