Marriages Forge A Path Towards Musical Greatness On Salome

a3589552345_10

EP, LP, Mini-LP…call it what you will but there’s no denying that the debut from Marriages was and is utterly brilliant. The six tracks comprised in that recording picked up the post-rock torch from Isis and rose from the ashes of Red Sparowes to create something wholly unique driven by Emma Ruth Rundle’s unparalleled vocals.

The Prodigy Releases The Day Is My Enemy Today In North America (Album Review)

The_Day_Is_My_Enemy_album_cover

I’m not sure if this is the most “violent” sounding The Prodigy record that it’s being billed as but it’s definitely the most aggressive one. Since the return of Keith Flint and Maxim Reality, The Prodigy have been a force to be reckoned with live and now they finally have a recorded body of work to match their stage presence with The Day Is My Enemy.

Let’s call the The Soft Moon’s last album, Zeros, out for what it really was: evil. It was a dark, mechanical slab of utterly brilliant noise that spat in the face of conventional music.

American Head Charge in 2015 have nothing left to prove to you because they’ve already endured.

Have you ever checked out new material from an older band who hasn’t put anything out in some time and just felt embarrassed for them? That’s how I felt when I checked out the new EP from Orgy (Available here if you’re interested). Only vocalist Jay Gordon remains of the original line up and with Talk Sick, they’ve managed to tarnish a respectable legacy with juvenile lyrics and songs that simply lack punch.

Landshapes Urge Listeners To “Stay” With New Single, Album

unnamed (13)

Without a doubt one of THE bands to watch in 2015, Landshapes instantly make waves on the four and a half minute bout of perfection that is “Stay” which could be compared to The Jesus And Mary Chain just as much as it could contemporaries like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club or 2:54. [Read more…]
