Tolchock “World Of Tolchock 1997-2017″ – album review

  I heard Tolchock for the first time when I came across their last full length album Elements of Rage which was released in 2015. I immediately fell in love with the unique sound they created and I was rather pleased to find out that they came back this year with an exquisite release; a collection of their work from 1997 to 2017. This release is an absolute “must hear”, especially if you haven’t listened…

Vogon Poetry “Life, The Universe And Everything” – album review

  The third full length Vogon Poetry’s album Life, The Universe And Everything was officially released on 20 April 2018. While The Perfect Stories merged the 80s influences with the band’s vision of synth pop and electropop, this album shows their opinion on electropop genre; the album sounds more futuristic than nostalgic. The catchy melodies, danceable beats and exceptional vocals of John Andersson make their music appealing to the wide audience. They are poppy and…

Chris Connelly “The Tide Stripped Bare” – album review

  Chris Connelly released his 20th solo album on Armalyte Records in February 2018. Mr. Connelly doesn’t need a special introduction; his great music career and opus speak volumes. Many of us associate Connelly with Ministry, Pigface, Revolting Cocks, Finitribe, etc. However, Connelly has always been an inspired song writer who explored the possibilities and different angles and approaches to artistic expression.
