Microdose: Hellripper, Clayshaper, White Crone, & Sallow Moth

Four great albums, four short reviews. The theme is solo visions, so people who through a lot of hard work put together their own album. They’re all highly creative people who put out quality music on their own terms, and often with the help of a friend or two. I’ve basically covered at least one solo project every dose and half of my reviews are of solo projects, I’m just drawn to them. […]

Album Review: Sutrah – Aletheia 10 (Progressive Death)

I have listened to this album so damn much, every time I open my promo library I just have to hear it again. I’m addicted to it. It does so much in the perfect amount of time, 28 minutes of thoughtful, creative and powerful song writing. It has top notch presentation, production and it’s full of ideas that I find moving or stimulating. The artwork, which is among the top I’ve seen this year, is basically depicting me each time I had a revelation about Aletheia while listening. […]

Album Review: Deathwhite – Graven Image 9.4 (Doom Metal)

It’s so early in the year and one of my most anticipated albums is already here. Some backstory for you, I first came across Deathwhite in 2018 when they released their first full length ‘For a Black Tomorrow’. The album blew me away and I’ve been consistently listening to it ever since. I’ve been waiting not so patiently since for news of a second album and so here we are with their second full length. I think I latched onto this band so quickly because of how much they remind me of Katatonia which is easily my favourite band of all time and they haven’t put out a new album in 4-ish years. When I first heard ‘For a Black Tomorrow’ I was instantly drawn in by this band’s likeness to Katatonia but I have stuck around because of the band’s talent and merit. […]

Album Review: 殞煞 Vengeful Spectre – 殞煞 Vengeful Spectre 8.5 (Folk/Black Metal)

It’s very rare I get to cover music from Asia, it’s even more rare that I get to cover music with traditional Asian instrumentation and folk roots. This brings us to Vengeful Spectre, a band that combines black metal with traditional Chinese folk music, and oh my god does it work. It works so well in fact, that I’m very surprised this is the first time I’ve heard something like this. […]

PR Client: White Crone – The Poisoner (Traditional Heavy Metal)

“Lisa Mann made a career as an award winning blues artist, but never lost her love of metal music. Growing up in the mosh pits of the 1980’s, she was inspired by bands such as Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Black Sabbath, Manowar, Dio and more. A mostly one-woman project, White Crone is a love letter to this grand era of metal, and a lyrical homage to mystical storytelling traditions of yore” […]

Pr Client: Scissorfight – Doomus Abruptus Vol 1 (Acid Mountain Rock)

Self described as “Acid mountain rock”, “Speed Doom” or just “Heavy Fuckin’ Rock”. Scissorfight has just released their first LP in over a decade and first every Vinyl LP since reforming with a new lineup in 2016. Scissorfight are back in full mud stomping force. Doomus Abruptus Vol.1 is front to back a raucous good time. Caveman Television is the strongest opening to an album you can get, it is an anthem worthy lead into some of the most southern and heaviest rock and roll you will hear this year from an OG band of the genre. “Give rock or give me death”.

PR Client: Eternal Rest – The Picture Of Hatred 2019 (Aus Death Metal)

Eternal Rest are an industrious death metal band from Brisbane, Australia with connections to American Labels and Swedish sound engineer/genius Dan Swano, who mixed the band’s 2019 release ‘The Picture Of Hatred’. With a lot more to say the band aren’t ready to relax yet, they are currently working on some brutal new material to elevate their craft, this monstrous release will be hitting our ears mid 2020.

PR Client: L’homme Absurde – Belong 2020 (Russian post black/screamo)

Please get in contact if you would like to book this band. They are looking for festival slots in Europe & Russia but are open to many other ideas. They are a energetic live band. They are also open to label offers. This is the kind of band that has a lot of initiative, they have self released many quality albums and will continue to do so regardless, but they can certainly make the most of good opportunities and resources.

Noob Advice: Getting The Most Out Of Bandcamp

Bandcamp is my favorite platform when researching for my articles and easily the best for underground metal of all subgenres and locations. It has many tools to provide bands and consumers. It saddens me however to see many bands not getting the full potential out of what it has to offer and not gaining any supporters. So this article aims to help bands improve their Bandcamp game, which will in turn improve their publicity and fanbase. Bandcamp is literally a promo pack, music platform, merch store and network hub in one. It’s incredible. It even has built in advertising campaigns and algorithms. […]
