Autokrator – Hammer of the Heretics (Limited Edition Cassette)

Ready for our next ritual? Well shut up because here it is anyway. As you know, I thoroughly enjoy music that breaks boundaries and isolates me as much as possible. Enter a favorite of mine, the band Autokrator, whose debut full-length I reviewed back in 2015 only a few months after the new site launched.…

Here's a fun one. Or I mean a fun one. I was first drawn to the design of AEGIS 2186 because of its simple, minimalist approach to the space shooter genre. If you're familiar with Tempest, Gyruss, and others, this little beauty, still largely unknown, has similar trappings, yet its modern approach is to its benefit. It relies on geometric…

Profane Order – Tightened Noose of Sanctimony (Demo Metal)

I almost started a new feature with this one, covering only demos, but I so rarely get any that I'd even consider reviewing I figured eh, let's just do this as the usual apocryphal review. Profane Order you've probably never heard of, but you likely will in the coming years, depending on what they do.…

Destroy All Gondolas – Laguna Di Satana

It's rare that I actually say something is unique. And I should make that as actually say so you get the emphasis. I joke, I rip to pieces, I vent, but sometimes I give my blood. It is time to give your blood to this band. I remember when I first reviewed their S/T 7" three…

Infected Syren – S/T (Cypriot Punk)

I'm glad I can finally say I reviewed a band from Cyprus, because the adjective "Cypriot" just sounds so great. So, here we have, for the first time ever, a Cypriot Punk outfit, though just "punk" is not nearly enough to describe them. This particular one, Infected Syren (also the band's name), was further down my queue…

Usurper (Metroidvania Darkness Ahoy)

I love user complaints, but especially concerning video games because anything negative is usually coming from a complete idiot running bad hardware. A fault with the self is hard to admit, it's easier to blame someone else for your crappy Win-1o set up or connection speed, which has nothing to do with the game itself. It's…

Okay people, let's do this. Since I've recently started to funnel more money into releases, I'm slowly building up stock for releases specifically done through me. The next one, featured here, I'm quite excited about. With permission from Lifeforce Records and Hanging Garden, Deaf Sparrow is doing a special, limited edition cassette version of their…

  Now here's a curious thing. So curious I'm not sure I've ever discussed it. First off, let's get the bio puke out of the way. Revenger come from Canada, and I don't recall ever having heard of them until this release. As usual, you know me, the cover is what first got my attention,…

I joked about this one on Facebook when I posted one of the band's promo photos. Some of you thought it was a meme I created, but it was not. And this critical review, too, is real. Victorius is one of several German bands over the past year that have left me disappointed, but this…
