VANESSA VAN BASTEN – disintegration EP

Posted in ambient metal, italy, metal, post rock, postrock, shoegaze, Uncategorized on March 18, 2017 by vesalahde

never was a fan of THE CURE, NIRVANA was the real thing, but recognize all these cover tracks, shoegazy, atmospheric, postrockish, metallic versions, better than originals.. and guys look more trustworthy than any finnish politician.

SONIC WOLVES – before the end comes LP & he said 7″

Posted in hard rock, heavy rock, italy, metal, Uncategorized on March 17, 2017 by vesalahde

stranger kind than usual heavy/hard rock, unpredictably twisting tracks, elements of progressive/metal/psychedelic as well, raw production, truly original.

OHHMS – the fool

Posted in doom metal, heavy metal, metal, progressive, sludge, uk, Uncategorized on March 4, 2017 by vesalahde

thunderous politically-charged (written in the promo sheet, would be nice to read the lyrics) progressive sludge metal, adventurous tracks have more parts than you ever find from the finnish top40, definitely needs more listens, so if youre looking for neat chorus/verse songs, keep on looking elsewhere, and as the old finnish proverb tells: “the fool is always more trustworthy than the govt”

THE LAND OF THE SNOW – paths of chaos

Posted in dark ambient, drone, experimental, industrial, instrumental, metal, soundtrack, switzerland, Uncategorized on February 26, 2017 by vesalahde

one man show at its finest, treated guitars, programmed drums and electronics creating a chaotic, metallic, instrumental soundtrack of this crazy world around us, considering chaos as a generator of new possibilities, as its described in the promo sheet:

“The aim of the project is to explore the possibilities offered by combining and merging different musical languages in order to create something different and unpredictable. Another goal is to drag the listeners into a high emotional state and use music as a medium to explore and develop one’s inner self.”

CHETYRE MUZHIKA – howl EP

Posted in hardcore, metal, russia, sludge, stoner metal, Uncategorized on February 15, 2017 by vesalahde

exotic-sounding, guess its the russian vocals, sludge/stoner/metal in the spirit of mastodon/red fang/90s alternative, as they describe it “the soundtrack to a hollywood-produced soviet western”, energetic in-your-face debut, not quite on par with their idols, and im comparing to mastodon. favorite track mustanga.

KITCHEN WITCH – back to the mud EP

1st track didnt get me over-excited, starting from the 2nd nicely flowing EP, difficult to name the exact genre, mixture of hard rock, heavy rock, metal, grunge, blues and soulful female vocals. favorite track the 2nd, ‘its okay’ slightly reminding of dead moons underground hit, ending to the garymoorish blues. also the 5th with the droney start is interestingly weird, tribal and mystical.

progressive force-powered instrumental star wars stoner rock, like faster starchild of kyuss, for some reason i was thinking vocals would be a nice addition, but who cares of the thoughts of others, just go ahead, LISTEN, and make your day, punk!
