Drab Majesty “Modern Mirror” – album review

Drab Majesty “Modern Mirror” – album review

  Obviously Drab Majesty have a strong musical identity. Yes we all know it has a massive 80’s vibe, but it is miles apart from the assorted retro revival acts doing the rounds now, who simply use an old synth to conjure up images of a bygone era. Drab Majesty are simply really fucking good song writers. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Joshua Eustis was at the helm on production duties for this album either….

Cryo “The Fall Of Man” – album review

Cryo “The Fall Of Man” – album review

  This is a refreshing departure from a lot of the synth wave and electronic material surfacing at the moment. There is a sense of foreboding and menace from the offset in ‘Know Your Enemy’. Employing a bass tone Peter Hook would be happy with and  vocal tone akin to that of Rob Dougan. It sets the tone for tan album that is well crafted, explores a myriad of sounds and textures and instantly captivates…

Junky Love return with their fourth single ‘Nowhere To Go’

Junky Love return with their fourth single ‘Nowhere To Go’

  Describing the lyrical content of the song, vocalist Axel states: “it is about self medicating and substance abuse. As anxiety and mental health issues reign over our sanity, many of us seek to numb that pain away. A marriage of drugs and alcohol is often the painkiller we fall in love with.” It does what you would want from a psychedelic rock track and it strays into desert rock territory at time, taking a…

Agent Side Grinder “A/X” – album review

  Agent Side Grinder are back with the new album ‘A/X’. Following on from their eponymous 2008 debut and through to the much more synth based ‘Alkimia’ in 2015, Agent Side Grinder have shown a constant evolution in their sound in their 11 year career and gaining a reputation as being a powerful live band. ‘A/X’ is a very synthy album. ‘Synth wave’ if you’re trying to be cool. And it uses it’s electronic footing…

NERO BELLUM “NFRN°” – album review

  Nero Bellum (of Industrial-Metal act Psyclon Nine) presents his eponymous solo project. Recorded live over two years, each piece in this collection is an exploration of synthesis in the modular domain. Each piece was improvised, with no overdubs, & without the use of computers in the creative process. The result is ominous, heavily atmospheric, percussive, dark, experimental modular electronica. “We live in a time in which electronic music has become foolproof & ‘perfect’ with…

Jean-Marc Lederman Experience “13 Ghost Stories” – album review

  “You come back to Earth, as a ghost, for 24 hours. What do you do?” That’s the simple yet intriguing question asked by Belgian industrial pioneer Jean-Marc Lederman to every vocalist and novelist joining his ’13 Ghost Stories’ project.
