I remember when Sectioned was the shit, and all their noise and heavy riffs were amazing. Then, the band’s guitarist suggested we also listen to his other band, Frontierer, which was a perhaps more “hardcore” take on the sound. Here comes their debut album, and second release, Orange Mathematics.
It’s a 15-song album, 14 of which are new compositions, and one comes from “The Collapse”, their previous EP. The sound here is improving on the qualities that were already there. The fast-paced, staccato riffs are loaded with guitar manipulations (in the style of Car Bomb) and djenty subdivisions, … Read more
You’re Lucky, God, That I Cannot Reach You is Down I Go‘s sophomore full-length release, after “This Is Dinocore”, as well as two shorter EP’s and a Christmas single. The band crowdfunded their new album via Kickstarter where it was completely funded (and I didn’t know or completely forgot about it, therefore didn’t even contribute myself!), and you can now stream the entirety of it on Upset Magazine. I can safely say that this is their best work to date. The recording quality is excellent, a thing that was sometimes lacking before, … Read more

We can officially say we are excited for this album that is … Read more

While searching for Systems‘ bandcamp page, earlier, I arrived on Systems‘ one by mistake. And I was really not disappointed!
Even though far from similar to non-diatonic experimental prog metallers Systems, Systems definitely is an interesting band also. More in the vein of post-hardcore and post-metal, with a tinge of experimental, black metal, and progressive elements that are [always] welcome. The album, in fact, consists of one huge 41-minute song, divided into eight parts about (from what I can tell) myths, particularly in medicine, but not limited to it.
It really is a well-crafted album, with great, almost … Read more
