“Some Gave All” from metal’s Broken Past

Written by on 28 July 2020

Loud and monstrous, though consistently melodic throughout its running time, the new single and music video “Some Gave All” from metal’s Broken Past is as sonically profound as it is lyrically moving. A sludgy, riff-based composition that leaves all of the fluff and unwanted fat on the sidelines, “Some Gave All” is an instrumental beast, […]

Death of the First Person  (LP) by Cinemartyr

Written by on 24 July 2020

Intimidatingly slothful in “Run From Terror to Bring It Closer,” oddly seductive and ascending in “Keeps Getting Up,” the grooves that we hear in the new album Death of the First Person by Cinemartyr are never conventional, but they define the very backbone of this record and its most cathartic moments without question. Employed as a channel […]

Forest Ray’s new single/video “Shadows”

Written by on 20 July 2020

Second out of the gate on Forest Ray’s Black Pine album is the new single “Shadows”. Established Seattle band Forest Ray go the distance again with this nod to 60s surf and psychedelic rock. And in the same vein as the song “Honesty”, listeners will immerse themselves in the splendor of twangy guitar melted to […]

 Brendan Staunton release Debut Album

Written by on 11 July 2020

Electrifying guitars that purge resentment and remorse over decisions left unmade. Supple percussive pulsating reminiscent of a heartbeat that coincides with giving yourself over to the unknown. Blending rich harmonies with […]

Dizzy Box Nine release Faster Than Anticipation

Written by on 10 July 2020

Dizzy Box Nine aren’t trying to keep up with the Joneses of mainstream rock in their new album, the hard and slick Faster Than Anticipation. They aren’t flirting with the synthetic harmonies of a commercially-bankrolled sound, nor do they ever show even the slightest interest in recycling some of the jaded riffing of their punk influences […]

Les Nuby releases debut solo album “Clouded”

Written by on 10 July 2020

Colorful, bright and immediately mood-producing, the first few seconds we hear in Les Nuby’s debut solo album Clouded are defined by the guitar’s melody in “Never Falling Away,” one of the record’s most inspired songs – but not the only track here worth taking a second look at. The hard-charging distortion and glowing vocal harmonies set the pace for […]

Roundeye releases “Culture Shock Treatment” (LP)

Written by on 9 July 2020

They say the third time’s a charm, and this is definitely true of Round Eye’s latest album, the relentlessly volatile Culture Shock Treatment. Culture Shock Treatment clocks in at a mere thirty-nine minutes in total running time, but it includes fifteen songs that are almost guaranteed to quake the ground beneath your floorboards this summer – even at […]
