Featured Release

A Perfect Circle – Eat the Elephant
Genre: Alternative Rock
Label: BMG
[Review]

“Why does Maynard look like he belongs in year 2000 Mudvayne?” –TheSpirit

Almost 15 years since Thirteenth Step (because nobody really wants to talk about eMOTIVe, right?), Maynard James Keenan, Billy Howerdel, and the rest of the band return with an appreciably moody offering, where themes of accountability, entitlement, and mortality percolate throughout the record. While Maynard acknowledged in a Rolling Stone interview that musicians might “not want to be too topical, because then you date your art”, his observations in contemporary times might continue to be just as applicable in another 15 years.

Apparently the latest trend for Sputnik darlings in their music videos is to stare at the camera at random intervals, although it’s unclear if “The Doomed” took inspiration of Steven Wilson. /s

Since when we're Tesseract on KScope? That's bloody hilarious that they're on the same label as Steven Wilson, Anathema and Gazpacho

Voivod

Needless to say about needing to hear the A Perfect Circle album.

On another note, great news for vintage heavy rock, as there is a new Abramis Brama album.

Skeptical. Her last album was sleep inducing

luci

JS19

Isn't the new Cancer Bats album - 'The Spark That Moves' out today as well? That counts as a farily big release no?

Jom
04.20.18
I can obviously add it -- since it was a 'surprise release' it didn't show up on any new release calendars.

TwigTW

Divaman

I'm interested in checking out Lack the Low and Lord Huron. Lack the Low already has a review though, and I'm probably not going to have the time to review Lord Huron, at least anytime soon.

Guess I'll check out J.Cole & Kimbra.

Dewinged

Jom

I'd be surprised if Raul (insomniac) isn't, but I haven't had a chance to ask him yet.
