Virus (NO) Investigator
While new material is always welcome from the Norwegians, the songs included herein do little in critically enriching Virus' critical output, and have nothing on their exclusion from the last(?) full-length album. Stream:
New Today Better Than Death
Slick post punk/gothic/darkwave that does little to reinvent the wheel, yet its merit remains unspoiled from listen to listen. The excellently minimal arrangements that blend nicely, the brooding vocals and the drone-y texture overall, are enough feats to frequent Better Than Death, as much as follow New Today in future and past tense. Favorite track: Destiny. Stream/"name your price" download:
Autobahn The Moral Crossing
More often than not, post-punk outfits indulge themselves and their respective audiences by reenacting the genre norms, as the latter have been differentiated within the genre's finite number of tributaries. In that respect, Autobahn's debut album falls right in place, which makes it impossible for anyone to say he/she could forsee the strides of differentiation The Moral Crossing has made with respect to Dissemble and traditional post-punk in general. The introduction to the relative neoterisms adopted by these Leeds UK lads is gradual, as the album starts off with traditional maneuvers, which progressively head towards a c
Loss Horizonless
Having heard only this album from the band, it is immediately evident that Loss are masters in crafting abstract, brooding atmospheres, that grant their sophomore effort adequate, perpetual even, replay time. However, the abstractness also works backwards, as by the time Horizonless comes to a close, rather than humming melodies or remembering whole song structures, what truly remains is the mood the album aspires to slipstream to its sonic beholders. Favorite track: The Joy Of All Who Sorrow. Stream:
Pink Cream 69 Headstrong
Pink Cream 69 have always been known for their especially catchy, top tier hard rocking metal, and surprise surprise, that's what their new album brings for the n-th time on the table. Germans will not reinvent their genre on their 12th album, but Headstrong sounds fresh in terms of the warm/wailing vocals floating over a gritty rhythm section and excellently tracked, pointy and optimally heavy guitars. Favorite track: Walls Come Done.
Savage Messiah Hands of Fate
Last (and only) personally checked instance of this band was Plague of Conscience in which these Englishmen were fairly interesting, while exerting the power/thrash practice. Judging only from the reviews of the follow-up album, The Fateful Dark elaborated further up the same alley, which makes the complete turn in style herein, all the more unexpected. Utter musical makeover is not a bad thing per se, as long as the music is worth it, which is marginally the case here. Savage Garden have blatantly adopted a more commercial "arena" metal/rock, shedding almost all their traits developped in the past. The sole irony here is th
An Erotic End of Times Chapter One
An Erotic End of Times have kickstarted their course with an album that could be easily dubbed "a soundtrack for the impending apocalypse". Equal parts gothic and metal (with specs of industrial), album's critical distinctions lie in the genre-optimal, agitating vocals, the ever fresh reenactment of all goth metal cliches, the razor-cut lyrics ("No Rights" chorus!!!), and the elaborate placement of famous samples from J. Robert Oppenheimer (on album opener "I am Become Death"), JFK etc. Favorite tracks: No Rights, Love is the End. Stream:
