An Anthology of Human Sickness is the debut EP of UK-based solo symphonic deathgrind project The Clockwork Deity. At under ten minutes long, it’s quite a short EP, but the three songs plus introduction are more than good enough to warrant a good time.

It’s quick, it’s aggressive, full of blast beats and technical riffs, and with a touch of classical music in the orchestration. The Clockwork Deity manages to craft something rather unique and entirely good. … Read more
So Hideous have carved a name for themselves in the post-metal scene with their focused and well-written first album “Last Poem/First Light”, just last year. They’re returning with Laurestine, out October 16th on Prothetic Records. Let’s talk more about the band and the album, now.
They seem to take the compositional process in the opposite way of most bands nowadays. Each composition starts on piano. Then comes the orchestral arrangements, and only then are added the guitars, bass, drums, and vocals. That makes for very emotional music that doesn’t rely on riffs or pretty much any other metal trope … Read more
Spanish project GARTH ARUM re-emerges through time with its debut album, marking the dawn of a new passion, of a new fire. ‘The Dawn of New Creation’ is ispired by dreams and emotions, venturing further into the depths of the human psyche.

This is the album of a lifetime, a deliverance of body and soul of the album’s creator Nightmarer, which is finally complete more than ten years after its initial conception. The songs were highly influenced by the music which bloomed in the 90s, … Read more

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
