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,… Read More Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

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… Read More The Raging Nathans – Waste My Heart LP (Rad Girlfriend 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,… Read More The Carolyn – This Will Begin To Make Things Right LP (59 X Records)

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

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

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… Read More Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)

This material is, what I truly believe, a second full-length by this Buffalo, NY-based quartet. Despite being fully aware of all the activities surrounding Swimming Faith, this recording somehow went under the radar, but luckily, now I have a chance to write a couple of lines about it. For those who missed my previous reviews… Read More Alpha Hopper – Last Chance Power Drive LP (Swimming Faith / Radical Empathy)

Heavy Petter – Such A Drag LP (Reel Too Real Records)

Right with the initial beats of this vinyl release, I knew this band would be right up my alley. There’s something about their highly energetic drumming and abrasive guitars that appeal to my listening apparatus, so their music entirely worked out for me after the first spinning. Heavy Petter is a punk rock trio from… Read More Heavy Petter – Such A Drag LP (Reel Too Real Records)
