  • True – Still Life CD (Geenger Records)

    True – Still Life CD (Geenger Records)

    Today, I am digging into the darkest depths of Geenger Records archives. This particular recording was one of their initial releases back in 2010, first in pipeline to be more precise. This material knocked my socks off when I heard it for the first time, so I asked Geenger Records HQ for permission to reintroduce […]

  • Cojones – Resonate LP (PDV Records)

    Cojones – Resonate LP (PDV Records)

    It’s been a while since we had a band like this on our pages. I felt like this blog lacks some proper desert rock reviews, so now it’s more than adequate time to introduce them to our readers. Perhaps this album was released five years ago, but it seems like the music of Cojones is […]

  • Forever Again – Resonate CD (Engineer Records)

    Forever Again – Resonate CD (Engineer Records)

    Engineer Records are known for their diverse catalog that embraces melodic punk rock, skate punk, pop-punk, emo, hardcore punk, post-hardcore, indie rock, and alternative rock artists. Each new release is even more surprising, and the crew pays a lot of attention to deliver only the best artists/bands in the game. Resonate by Forever Again is […]

  • 3dBs Down – Get Your Retaliation In First LP (Engineer Records)

    3dBs Down – Get Your Retaliation In First LP (Engineer Records)

    I was not familiar with this band until David of Engineer Records advised me to take a couple of listens of their latest recordings. He sent me the material, but due to the nature of my work, I settled this material aside until I complete previous submissions for the blog. At some points, their logo […]

  • Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

    Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

    At first, I thought this was a split cassette release, but after a while, I realized it is a live collaboration between Abattoir and Satori. This material is not their first collaboration, and previously they released the album version of Megaloschemos and another collaborative cassette named Aether. Abattoir is a side project of Lorenzo Abattoir, […]

  • The Raging Nathans – Waste My Heart LP (Rad Girlfriend Records)

    The Raging Nathans – Waste My Heart LP (Rad Girlfriend Records)

    The Raging Nathans came a long way from a local punk rock band to a critically acclaimed worldwide known act, and there’s a good reason for that. Since their beginnings, the musicians involved in this outstanding band invested blood, sweat, and tears into every single recording they ever released. Their effort is hearable on each […]

  • The Carolyn – This Will Begin To Make Things Right LP (59 X Records)

    The Carolyn – This Will Begin To Make Things Right LP (59 X Records)

    For some weird reason, I always thought this blog is lacking more reviews about bands like these. There’s something about the mixture of alternative rock, melodic punk rock, and pop-punk that appeals to the ears of nearly every admirer of punk rock music. The sound is maybe subtler and mellower than regular melodic punk rock, […]

  • Púder & Pormeister Trió / Triste Ensemble / Noisesculptor – Unsigned 3​-​Way Split Series Volume I (Unsigned)

    Púder & Pormeister Trió / Triste Ensemble / Noisesculptor – Unsigned 3​-​Way Split Series Volume I (Unsigned)

    Here’s another interesting experimental release, which is also one of the latest published by the Unsigned, an avant-garde music label from Budapest, Hungary. Just as the vast portion of their previous releases, Unsigned follow some principles by releasing music on cassettes or compact discs. This time, I am dealing with a split cassette release between […]

  • Robert & Shanyio – Palimpsest CD

    Robert & Shanyio – Palimpsest CD

    This material is probably the latest release by Shanyio, which came out a couple of months ago. Following his previous material Of The Waters / A Apelor, which I covered on these pages before, Palimpsest represents another dosage of acoustic ambient/drone by this Romanian avant-garde artist. However, this time he’s teamed up with Robert Nedelcu, […]

  • The 69 Cats – Seven Year Itch CD (Cleopatra Records)

    The 69 Cats – Seven Year Itch CD (Cleopatra Records)

    What started as a project between two prolific individuals now threatens to turn into a full-time group. When I say group, I mean supergroup because this project already involved two experienced musicians, and with a brand new material coming in a couple of days, it now involves some other prominent names that roam the underground […]

  • Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

    Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

    Shanyio came a long way from experimental artist to prolific avant-garde composer/multiinstrumentalist. Perhaps this Romanian artist seem like a prolific musician who releases his recordings on a nearly monthly basis, but Shanyio calculates and simultaneously works on several projects at the time. Therefore, it may appear like his albums and collaborations are popping from every […]

  • Merit Maker – Quarantined EP

    Merit Maker – Quarantined EP

    I guess the only positive thing about this quarantine is the enormous amount of artists, musicians, and bands, gathering together with the purpose to deliver some quality music to keep us sane during the pandemic. You can pick up any genre you desire at a particular moment and discover some creative minds who contributed to […]
