New MM Track [Apr. 17th, 2007|09:57 am]
Music Reviews from Mark T

A new Mr. Manson track from the upcoming album 'Eat Me, Drink Me' which is out at the beginning of June. I think it is rather good. Quite slow, aggressive, haunting guitar loops. Give it a listen.
Marilyn Manson - If I Was Your Vampire

Finally another update.

A track from the new Machinehead album has surfaced. I'm unconvinced with it to be honest, sounds a bit too like it's from The Burning Red era.
Machinehead - Aesthetics of Hate


Featuring Daryl Palumbo from Glassjaw this long-running background project is still apparantly going. Chilled out, rather strange. A bit Incubus-esque. Ok. Not brilliant.
Geometry - Hard To Breathe


The new album from ZoZobra is streamable from their website. These guys are touring with Isis & Jesu so you can imagine the style the go for. A varied mix of prog-influenced technical guitars and powerful hardcore distorted sounds. The same goes for the vocals, ranging from very reverberated singing to full on hardcore screams. Actually pretty good.
ZoZobra - Harmonic Tremors (full release)

A band that lists their influences as Rorschach, Dissolve & Justin Timberlake who knows what to expect. It's kindof trash of sorts. Sortof. Think Dillinger Escape Plan but slowed down and not quite as technical. More raw I guess. It's listenable, nothing really inventive though.
Pristina - Various

That's your lot for now. I've got some more to go through later.

[Review] Walls of Jericho - With Devils Amongst Us All [Nov. 13th, 2006|10:38 am]
Music Reviews from Mark T

Walls of Jericho have been around for a while now and have never really impressed me. Their first album was very samey, badly produced, vocals were a bit shit. I then saw them live and my opinion didn't change, they were trying to be an Arch Enemy style band but just weren't up to scratch.
When I noticed the release of With Devils Amongst Us All I thought I would give them another try. And I'm so glad I did. This album is excellent from start to finish. Songs like A Trigger Full of Promises and Welcome Home have huge thrash influences and definately show a different direction to the Arch Enemy comparison. While Candace's voice is similar to Angela Gossow's (Arch Enemy) the music itself is quite different.
It's hard to describe the album as a whole as it mixes together Thrash, Hardcore and on one track even hints of Gothic Metal in a Lacuna Coil style.
Very Brutal, Very good. Listen!

Sorry, it has been a while but I'm back on here!

New video from Cult of Luna is rather good, new Burn in Silence is generic hardcore but the drum kit is pretty cool so worth watching.
She Killed Poetry bring us a nice and brutal new offering.
And the new video from The Haunted with the brand new track, The Flood, from their new album The Dead Eye.

Hardcore/Prog
Cult of Luna - Back to Chapel Town (Video)
Burn in Silence - Lines From An Epitaph

Grindcore/Death Metal
She Killed Poetry - Murderous Hands

Some awesome new stuff has surfaced today.

Lets start with The Blood Brothers. Their previous albums have been excellent, and unique, although pretty inaccessible to many due to the lack of structure and the manic vocals.
Two songs from their new album, Young Machetes are now available and they keep their unique sound while adding more structure, more "bouncy" beats and more casio keyboards. While the vocals stay very bizarre, they are much more controlled and vague glimpses of grunge band Huggy Bear appear to me through the vocals.
So here they are:
The Blood Brothers - Set Fire to the Face & Laser Life

Leng Tch'e also have a couple of new tracks available. People may remember I posted their last video involving a guy massacring his boss in the office. This is pure brutal grindcore. Think Raging Speedhorn with more talent and more energy. Not one for the feint-hearted.
Leng Tch'e - Confluence of Consumers & Self-Pity as a Daily Routine

And finally, a band that requires no introduction. The entirety of Slayer's new album is streamable here:
Slayer - Christ Illusion

A few tracks for your listening pleasure today. The amazingly atmospheric Wintersleep hit us with a new video, but unfortunately it's for one of their worst songs.
A powerful new track from Nights Like These, a track from the debut album of excellent Experimental Hardcore band The Human Abstract, and the latest song from Mastodon, featuring Scott Kelly of Neurosis on vocals!

Wintersleep - Faithful Guide (Video)
