Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of July 27, 2018.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.  As our staff post reviews of these albums, links will appear below the artwork (if we remember…) so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


 

Featured Release

Gate Of Grief

White Ring: Gate of Grief
Genre: Electronic/Indie Rock
Label: Rocket Girl

Now this is just creepy.  There’s such an unsettling vibe to this whole thing, from the band name to the artwork to the massive industrial groove beats that throw me all the way back to The Downward Spiral (or, more recently, Crystal Castles).  Oh, and those shrill, shouted vocals, followed by by the low, distorted Frank the Rabbit (Donnie Darko) spoken passage.  Yikes.  This thing just feels monumental.  I get the feeling from the tracklist that there could be some serious political vibes on this thing as well.  They have only released one other album and it was all the way back in 2010.  Apparently, Gate of Grief has been 7 years in the making.  I have a feeling it will be well worth the wait, and one of those albums that catches everyone off guard when it comes out of nowhere.  Listen to “Leprosy” below:

Interesting week but not a lot of big names.

Maybe I'll check out Dee Snider out of loyalty to a fellow Long Islander.

She definitely is pretty. No desire to check out her music though.
For me this week is mostly about White Ring. It's gotten mixed reviews to this point so my expectations are dampered compared to that hype machine soundoff I copy-pasta'd.
