Welcome back to Throwback Thursday! This is the place where we get to indulge in nostalgia and wax poetic about…
The band’s newest record, Arson, continues the tradition of exuding streaks of heartbreaking feeling. Across the record’s eight songs, there comes a constant flow of sadness and pain. However, whereas the band’s previous record contained much technical variety across all its material, Arson ends up quickly staling out.
I, Voidhanger Records will be releasing this debut full-length on February 16, 2018. With plenty of synth tones and build ups, mirrored with piercing tremolo picking, it is clear Eigenlicht has a focus of building upon their sound through each song.
Whether or not there is a place for this type of rock/metal in your life, there should be a place for quality composition, and this is where Good Tiger's strength lies. I'll pass on the emotional ties this musical generally elicits, and go straight for the craftsmanship and soul of the sound.
Although it can feel a tad monotonous and underdeveloped at times, Legend of the Seagullmen is an imposing yet fun ride from start to finish.
This LP is gripping from front-to-back and is already a contender for album of the year in my book.
Finland’s Hooded Menace return with a brand new collection of doom/death metal in the form of Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed (Season of Mist). While there’s that consistent element of drone to be found in their work, there are plenty of times where the band shift gears to deliver hefty moments of intensity, dropping bouts of brutality.
