AOTM – Watain – Sworn to the Dark

| Leave a Comment

Man, this album is an absolute banger.  My buddy Zack back in the USA is obsessed with this band.  I mean, I have seen them live but I never dove deep into their discography.  Starting with “Sworn to the Dark”, I am not disappointed in the least.  More than half this album is completely balls-out […]

AOTM – TRUP – TRUP

/ | Leave a Comment

Heyyyyyy, who said that Facebook ads don’t work?  I was scrolling one day and saw this cool TRUP bundle package thingy (shirt/patch/pin) and thought the logo was pretty interesting.  I decided to do a little bandcamp recon, and the music was absolutely CRUSHING.  Raw, unadulterated ANGER.  Those vocals too, holy shit…  I totally make those […]

Varaha – EP

/ | Leave a Comment

Varaha’s first EP is a fucking BANGER.  Wrote this when it was released back in 2016. Chicago has one of the best, yet overlooked metal music scene.  There are so many talented artists out there working their asses off to create their views of beauty, sorrow, angst, or whatever through music.  It is all within […]

Pallbearer – Heartless

You know, i dug this album back in 2017, but after seeing them live, the last show of their tour for this album, I lost ALL interest.  I am sure they were tired…  but they were just SO OFF.  Sure this is what I wrote back in 2017, but my current score is totally affected […]

Pale Horseman – Bless the Destroyer

Here is a review of Pale Horseman I did back in 2015! Plug. Have you ever daydreamed about walking through some cold, dark, musty catacombs in search for treasure?  If not, you either never watched any Indiana Jones movies as a kid, or you are a filthy liar, or maybe you just do not have […]

Scientist – 1010II0101

| Leave a Comment

Reviewing Scientist’s 2nd album here, and I fucking love this thing.  2015 in the house! After a night of heavy drinking, Neurosis’ “Through Silver in Blood” went to the titty bar to see if he can get lucky.  He stumbles into the dark, nasty club and orders another drink… a whiskey sour on the rocks […]

Scientist – Scientist

A review I wrote from one of my favorite fucking bands, and one of my fucking favorite albums of all time.  Released in 2013. Every once in a great while, an album is released that just attaches itself to you and shatters you to your very core.  To me, Scientist’s self-titled release is one of […]

Immortal Bird – Akrasia

Here is a review I did of Immortal Bird back in 2013! Its been pretty cold here in Chicago with the whole polar vortex thing going on, and if you are like I am, the temperature and weather affects the patterns of what music I listen to.  What a joy it was to have Immortal […]

Yeti – Act 1: Infinity

Here is a review I wrote back in 2013! I know all of you have experienced this in one way or another.  You are either at work, or doing something around the house/apartment/garage/trailer/cardboard box, and you’ve got music blaring in the background because silence utterly sucks.  You have your shit on random, or some sort […]
