Artist: Conjurer Album Title: Páthos Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 1 July 2022 I can’t quite believe that it has been over four years since I first wrapped my ears around ‘Mire’, the debut album from UK-based metal band Conjurer.

SOM – The Shape Of Everything – Album Review

Artist: SOM Album Title: The Shape Of Everything Label: Pelagic Records Date of Release: 21 January 2022 Just like all music reviewers, I have my favourite labels and PR people; not to say that there are particularly any bad ones, it’s just that some will cater more to my tastes than others.

Toundra – Hex – Album Review

Artist: Toundra Album Title: Hex Label: InsideOut Music Date of Release: 14 January 2022 I’m officially abandoning my traditional stance that I’m not a fan of instrumental rock and metal.

Artist: Sleep Token Album Title: This Place Will Become Your Tomb Label: Spinefarm Date of Release: 24 September 2021 It’s one thing to be able to shroud your identity in mystery behind masks or by deliberately shunning the media, but it’s quite another to be able to hide the true identity of your music as  Continue Reading »

Artist: Long Distance Calling Album Title: How Do We Want To Live?

Artist: Irist Album Title: Order Of The Mind Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 27 March 2020 I wasn’t going to review ‘Order Of The Mind’ by Irist until I was enticed into doing so by a few acquaintances on a couple of social media platforms.
