A lot of new releases on our desks but little time to properly listen and write a presentation. We are already considering about having a second review post for September which will follow shortly. Stay tuned but in the meantime you can read the first…

Female Fronted Metal Mixtape…

Singapore is well known for being one of the most economically developed countries in Asia (and not only). Positioned 5th globally in Human Development Index and having equally high rankings in education, healthcare and level of employment, all these would make anyone wonder if playing hardcore punk there is only a result of fashion and western mimetism or if there is a deeper reason behind…

We may still be technically in Summer, but this does not stop us from reviewing some of the best Death/Black Metal releases that came in our hands this month. Sit back, put on your sunscreen, grab your cocktails and enjoy…

Another lot of superb releases coming from Greek artists, proving that despite the overall country’s situation its music scene is vocal and vital. Two facts not necessarily unrelated between themselves…

2 of this month’s best releases prove that (also) when it comes to Metal, Women rule !

This month’s lot of new releases includes some of the best promos this blog has ever received. Read our reviews, together with some thoughts regarding creativity and innovation in today’s music scene….

Post Metal from France, that already qualifies as one of this year’s best releases…
