Candy – Candy Meatworks

Candy is a one-man project from Czechia, and they’ve just released Candy Meatworks, which appears to be their third opus. The project is one of bass guitar-centric experimental rock. The Czech lyrics are sung in an eccentric fashion, not unlike many other avant-garde bands like Mr. Bungle, to name but one, and the rhythm beneath them is heavily driven by the bass guitar. That makes their sound very funky and almost dancey. As mentioned in their bandcamp description, there’s a special place for dissonance, which emphasize the unique character of the project. The programmed drums are, for the most … Read more

Here lies Unexpect…

Unexpect was like a great friend to me. A friend I looked up to and kept impressing me. More than just a friend, Unexpect was a brother, a sister, a father, a mother, and a band with which I shared tastes and brainwaves. After years of respectable works and inspiration, now, here lies Unexpect. A jewel of avant-garde metal leaves us, today, in mourning. Let’s hear again some of their most beautiful works:

However, there is a silver lining to this bleak day, as the members of Unexpect are working on new material with other bands. First of which is … Read more

Review: Pryapisme – Futurologie EP

If you didn’t already know our blatant bias towards French experimental metal band Pryapisme, now is the time to witness it. The reason is that the band’s newest work, Futurologie EP, has just come out, and, as you would expect from a totally biased reviewer, it’s fucking incredibly awesome! Now let’s dig a little deeper to see why, and try to convert you into our Church of Pryapismology.

First of all the band has made it clear from the very beginning that they would be including a lot of humour into their instrumental mayhem. With an imagery based … Read more

News: Upcoming awesome band alert! Vvon Dogma I

Funky, djenty, proggy, those are the three words that I can put on this project for now. There’s next to no information available on the project, apart from the bass demo video… by no less than the monstrous bassist from Unexpect but rather than play on a 9 string bass guitar, it’s on a more standard 6 string. And he still totally kills it, even though it’s quite remote from Unexpect’s sound.

As for now, I believe they are actively looking for an 8-string guitarist with high-end gear, who thinks outside the box, and who has a clean criminal record … Read more

News: A teaser for Lee Wanner’s new album

Every Man Is An Island is artist and multi-instrumentist Lee Wanner‘s upcoming solo album. Adding so many varied influences to a progressive metal, or djent perhaps, foundation that it’s difficult to categorize his music as such, this is certainly progressive in the literal way of the term.

I’ll be the first to buy that album once it’s available (if my wallet lets me), and I highly suggest you take interest in this man’s greatly interesting music!… Read more

News: Pryapisme releases video for Futurologie Part IV!

Here it is! The glitchy, catty, spacey music video for the first music piece from Pryapisme‘s new EP, Futurologie. This one is Part IV, and there’s only one thing I must say: it’s too short! It’s too damn short!

In other words, I can’t wait February 9th, when this bad boy comes out. Pre-order the EP now here!Read more

Clément Belio + other peeps = ITZAMNA

ITZAMNA‘s first single, Kiska, gives us a taste of what the EP, entitled “Metnal”, will be like. Verdict: It’s really promising! There’s the “clems6belio” vibe in there, but they’re a real talented and diverse band, so… I can only say that I’m looking forward to hear more from them, and definitely looking forward to their EP, coming out November 5!… Read more

Amogh Symphony streams new song. And you thought you’d hear it all!

1289, Voyeur Will Shine, Fight For Distinction, Evolution Is Mine is the first single off of Amogh Symphony‘s third album “Vectorscan”.

…And it’s mind-blowing! Meditation chants, chiptune, glitch music, noise, funk, movie music, tech-death, world music… everything seems to be found in that song! Even excerpts from “The Quantum Hack Code” are hidden in the music, hinting at the fact that this is a sequel to the story, in all it’s incandescent glory!

If you placed expectations for this album, they’re very probably ruined, but this album will definitely be a milestone in music history … Read more

They the artists! Rejectionary Art – Exocoetidae : Flying Fish

Like their band’s name so brilliantly puts it, Rejectionary Art puts aside any convention that might have been put up in the history of music (or so).

After the intro song, which is propaganda over spazzy rhythms and harmonies (featuring Morgan Ågren, no less!), the styles come and go, follow each other in lines coming from every corner of the Americas. Bluegrass, jazz, funk, etc. etc. etc.

Each song is different from the next one, so you really don’t know what to expect, and at times you’re left paralyzed, not knowing what to do. That’s just how impressive these gents … Read more

Chaostar – Anomima


Anomima.

This name may not evoke a simple thought in your mind.

The story is different for me.

After listening to this album, the name Anomima sends my mind on a vast journey. A journey of beautiful, desolate, and meaningful landscapes. Those that are shaped by emotion, not erosion.

Anomima makes me travel different countries, each with their language, their culture, and their faces. Anomima is timeless, neither ancient, or future, and definitely not contemporary. Anomima is unpredictable : once you think you’ve got it, and you’ve got a sense of what awaits you, new challenges will be offered to … Read more
