Lately, noise rock has really been doing it for me.

For months now, I've found myself revisiting those two Chat Pile EPs that dropped last year (you know the ones if you like noise rock, right?), and I just can't STOP going back to them. So, clearly I have developed some kind of noise rock addiction...

And I've been jonesing for something to scratch that itch for SO long. I haven't found anything... until Exhalants came along.

Exhalants make sounds that are reminiscent of the unbridled ... read more

I'm always on the hunt for some new blackgaze. Synthvvitch has very good ideas and is very much decent. The end result just feels and sounds a little bit thin and weak to me, unfortunately.

This is an album that gets all the more dark and all the more moving the further you dive into its rich storytelling journey. It's beautiful, it's sincere, and it's masterfully written. The Golden Days are Hard is indie-rock/alt-country at its most experimental, thrilling, and emotional. I can't get enough of it.

Top Tracks: The January Song, Mercy, "milk of human kindness", White Lichen, The October Song, The Golden Days are Hard
Rating: 9.8/10 - Excpetional!

I gotchu.

Cult of Lilith have pulled their second LP up from the pits of hell, and it's PRETTY GOOD. The instrumentals are largely run-of-the-mill for prog/tech death metal, but the vocal performance exhibits such range and is so bat shit insanely good! Like the vocals on this LP are so varied and so destructive. Love it. And Cult of Lilith also ... read more

This is much cleaner than what I'm used to pumping into my earholes. But it's the first thing I'm listening to today. Let's see how it goes!

So, I'm not at all familiar with Oceans of Slumber's previous works, but I do understand that they are pretty highly regarded in certain circles. Now, I have to be honest and say that this vein of progressive, melodic metal has to be REALLY good to get my juices flowing. This band reminds me of Jinjer. And Jinjer is a band that I've always loved the ... read more
