Daisy Chainsaw Eleventeen
My first ever exposure to KatieJane Garside was on the Minus track "Last Leaf Upon the Tree": a great song especially regarding her vocals; seemingly childlike at points, yet oozing vulnerability alongside darkness. Way before this, she sung for London-based alt rock group Daisy Chainsaw, whose full-length debut recording was intense as it could get sensual and, uh... fucking warped. Nearing 41 minutes, Eleventeen was a borderline cohesive blend of noisiness, punk, and grunge sounds, not to mention the album possessed a very raw garage aesthetic going for it. This outing showed that Daisy Ch
Polyphia New Levels New Devils
For better or worse, everything's bigger in Texas: hair, mascots, BBQ, state pride, reality TV, etc. Speaking of big, four-piece troupe Polyphia have been getting a whole lot of talk lately, and their third studio effort is... something else. New Levels New Devils is unambiguously instrumental math rock in style, with vestiges of prog, trap, djent and R&B to be found over the course of the album's length. It's technically impressive in terms of musicianship and the melting pot of genres here sounds rad on paper, but the composing leaves so much to be desired. That and the mixing/general production at large comes off
It's easy for me to admit that Mindless Self Indulgence were an enjoyable, creative, and effectively shocking bunch in their prime; their first three albums are still nice to put on from time to time. They were edgy without the negative connotations surrounding said word -- and the same could be said for James rEuringer (aka Jimmy Urine), the frontman for that group. The end of 2018 is drawing near and Little Jimmy ain't so little anymore, so under his real surname, he released this studio album that's technically the man's second solo record. Between the wildly uneven songwriting quality, overstaying its welcome at 56 minute
Dehumanizing Itatrain Worship/Cheerleader Concubine The Divine Union of Serrated Flesh
Dir En Grey The Insulated World
Much to my disappointment, Dir En Grey couldn't summon forth cotton candy. Looking at it on the bright side, however, I got something almost as delicious if not more so: another sweet addition to this act's diverse-sounding catalog. The Insulated World, the band's tenth studio release, is a rip roarer in both style and *especially* instrumental talents. While admittedly it's quite a few steps below the 'Dynamically Divine Diru Trilogy', this quintet still knows how to get dem creative juices flowing and help expand the customers' brains. Some compositions feel more underdeveloped than others (e.g. "Downfall") and the
Travis Scott Astroworld
First of all, that's got to be one of the best methods of putting your face on the cover I've ever done seen, tackiness notwithstanding. Secondly, ASTROWORLD is a very addictive pop rap release that touches upon trap influences all while simultaneously boasting quite the psychedelic flavor to it. On top of that, the record nicely demonstrates the drive Travis Scott has as not just a curator, but a composer, too. Even though he himself has problems carrying the whole thing on his back, not to mention the second half of this album being (for the most part) substandard compared to the first string of tracks, ASTROWORLD is still
Pop Will Eat Itself This Is the Day...This Is the Hour...This Is This!
Usually fun isn't a concept apes ponder over when they're trying to balance the universe. But *this*? Pop Will Eat Itself's highly regarded 1989 record ends up being one of those things that does put possibly the goofiest smile on my face. At 51 minutes in total, This Is the Day... stomps about with a dorky swagger matched only by hedonism and a surprising quota of substance the more spins listeners give it. While all that goes on, this English band soundwise do an incredibly commendable job melding styles like disco, dance, industrial and hip hop. Hell, even strokes of post-punk happen to make appearances throughout

  • Hurricanslash Hey Jared, I know it's been a hell of a long time, but I managed to finally put out another album as C. C. Munster. It's the last album Imma release under that pseudonym as well, and once you listen to it, you'll probably understand. I hope you've been doing okay.

  • EvoHavok Hi there. Have you watched Mode of Macabre? I know you like the album itself more than most people here. I can give you a link to 1080p rip I made for it if you want :).
