How does music make us feel fear?

Well, I suppose it’s just a matter of preference. Some choose to brute force it, using monstrously loud and harsh noises to get the heart pumping from the jump, like any one project from the catalog of Nails. On the opposite side of the spectrum, some go for a distant sort of atmosphere, creating this cold and unfeeling environment you can never quite adjust to, such as Giles Corey or Begotten 自杀 of Geometric Lullaby. Others even forgo the ... read more

Let me get this straight. Kiss pivoted into a full-on grunge record and, perhaps miraculously, it’s not a steaming pile of goat shit. Who would’ve thought?

Now look, yes, it’s not exactly on the level of Nevermind or Superunknown or anything like that. In simplest terms, it’s the band trying to get with the times and follow the biggest trend of the time to maintain some relevance after they had started to peter out.

WAP came right out of nowhere and took the world by storm. Cardi and Meg uniting as one divine feminine force to bless us with a sex anthem for the ages.

Instrumentally rich and armed with plenty of vocal chops to back it up, Mary’s got a lot going for it, and I’m hoping talking about it will get a few more eyes on it.

Nu metal, bitch.

God, this record is just way too much fun. I’ve been wanting to check out more nu metal for a good while now, given much of my exposure to it has been solely Slipknot, and a friend of mine recommended me Static-X. Long story short, I was on board in an instant. This is, simply put, one of the most exciting and entertaining nu metal projects I’ve heard so far.

On all fronts, the performances across this album are electric. Even if you aren’t too familiar with ... read more
