SUICIDAL TENDENCIES – how will i laugh tomorrow when i cant even smile today

Posted in california, crossover, hardcore, LPs i used to have, skate punk, thrash, Uncategorized on May 25, 2019 by vesalahde

im brainwashed by my own writings, remembered this magnificent album while writing my other blog, the LP you never got tired of, isnt it bit strange that band named suicidal tendencies brings you the best childhood memories.

ps. was curious to see if theyre still doing music and gotta say this is no “how will i laugh” but better than the most of the new bands that never invent anything new. WHOLE WORLD GONE INSANE, agree with that.

VENETIAN VEIL – no bridge

Posted in ambient, california, experimental, gothic, shoegaze, Uncategorized on September 12, 2017 by vesalahde


when seeing the tracklist i thought this is just another depressing album, but i was surprised, its sad, melancholic like lars von triers movies (some of them), gloomy, beautiful and theres something gothic like in joy division (3rd and 6th track).
