Torche – Admission – Review

July 8, 2019

All roads lead to the title track, the heart of the album (placed smack in the middle) and among the best songs the band has ever recorded.

The Breeders – All Nerve – Review

December 6, 2018

Kim and Kelley Deal make difficult music. This is tough sledding at first – like much good and great music – but it’s interesting and at times, very good.

Monster Magnet – Mindfucker – Review

March 31, 2018

They’ve gone from tripped-out, psychedelic fare like Spine of God and Dopes to Infinity to a more straightforward rock ‘n’ roll sound on Mindfucker, their 11th album.

c.Kostra – Now I Feel It – Review

January 31, 2017

Heavily distorted vocals push, pull, and mold these tracks into beautiful miniature soundscapes that sound fresh and innovative while managing to be accessible.

Pain – Coming Home – Review

November 11, 2016

From industrial to country to metal to classic rock, Tägtgren is just endearingly weird – in the Les Claypool or Devin Townsend mold- when he’s in Pain mode.

Wovenwar – Honor Is Dead – Review

November 4, 2016

Wovenwar sounds unshackled here, free to create a melodic metalcore sound that feels natural rather than predictably soft/heavy, good cop/bad cop.

Pixies – Head Carrier – Review

September 26, 2016

The Pixies 2.0’s second tilt, Head Carrier, picks up where the first one, Indie Cindy, left off; and like its predecessor, it’s a bit uneven.

Squarecrow – Rammi Jamms – Review

August 26, 2016

Squarecrow sounds focused and energized throughout Rammi Jamms, and they even throw in a snarled, skank-worthy take on The Smiths’ immortal “Bigmouth Strikes Again.”

Metal Massacre 14 – Review

April 29, 2016

34 years and 13 volumes later, Metal Massacre 14 compiles a new wave of artists all sharing a true metal mindset. Strictly old-school denim and leather stuff.
