American Heritage - Millenarian album cover

American Heritage

Millenarian, 2006

8.8 / 10

I want to say, before I get to my actual review, that I give out a lot of high scores in my reviews because I would much rather write about ...

Cable - Last Call album cover


Last Call, 2006

8.0 / 10

Cable might be one of the best bands that you have never heard. In today's punk and hardcore atmosphere there is a serious lack of the visceral disgust that bands ...

Irepress - Samus Octology album cover


Samus Octology, 2007

9.5 / 10

Instrumental music that doesn’t bore one to death is hard to come by, especially in a world like today. There are handfuls of bands attempting the instrumental sound and failing ...

Declan de Barra - Song of a Thousand Birds album cover

Declan de Barra

Song of a Thousand Birds, 2007

6.7 / 10

Now, this is a pleasant surprise. I have not been previously introduced to Declan de Barra or previous outfits (Clann Zu and Non Intentional Lifeform). So, there are no expectations ...

Rosetta - Wake/Lift album cover


Wake/Lift, 2007

8.0 / 10

If you’re unfamiliar with Rosetta, punch yourself. Seriously, I’ll wait. Go ahead and punch yourself if you’ve never heard of Rosetta. Okay now By now, you’re probably asking why you ...

It has been a rather tumultuous year for Mouth of the Architect. Late last year the band announced their breakup as a result of the departure of their main songwriter ...

Cable - Variable Speed Drive (Reissue) album cover


Variable Speed Drive (Reissue), 2009

7.0 / 10

Sometimes there is something which goes by the reference of historical revisionism whereby people go back and alter the place of a person, place, thing, or idea into a more ...

Bloodhorse - Horizoner album cover


Horizoner, 2009

9.0 / 10

This review has been a long time coming. Translation Loss Records seems to have a knack of finding the best of the recent crop of stoner or post-metal style bands ...

Struck by Lightning - Serpents album cover

Struck by Lightning

Serpents, 2009

8.7 / 10

I've said it before: Translation Loss has an amazing knack for finding bands that are head and heels over most of the metal world. This time they saved a bunch ...

Battlefields - Thresholds of Imbalance album cover


Thresholds of Imbalance, 2009

6.0 / 10

There are bands and musicians that, when heard, give off the sense that their physical environment informs, influences, and shapes their music. Battlefields is surely one of those bands whose ...

Crone - Endless Night album cover


Endless Night, 2011

5.0 / 10

I lost part of my virginity to Jeff Caxide.No, not that virginity. Go get a dictionary, you sleaze. I meant that listening to Oceanic for the first time took just ...

Various Artists - Junius-Rosetta album cover

Various Artists

Junius-Rosetta, 2011

8.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Junius and Rosetta are two odd bands to select for a split. It's hard to imagine the sonic distortion of the band behind The Galilean Satellites matching up with a ...

Giant Squid - Cenotes album cover

Giant Squid

Cenotes, 2011

7.0 / 10

Well, that was a short album. At only thirty-five minutes long, doom/sludge metal group Giant Squid have almost halved the runtime of their previous album, The Ichthyologist, for the release ...
