Roadburn Album of the Day:
Temporarily On Hold
Posted: June 19, 2015 at 5:31 am

The album of the day will be temporarily on hold until July 15th, as we’re working behind the scenes on Roadburn 2016. Plus we want to enjoy the summer a bit as well – we’re sure you understand! Thank you for your understanding – album of the day will return […]

Album of the Day:
Lucifer – Lucifer I
Posted: June 18, 2015 at 8:21 am
Lucifer - Lucifer I

Lovingly pinched from Treble Zine: The name Lucifer comes up frequently in searches through the vinyl archives of 1970s obscurities. It’s the pseudonym that electronic music pioneer Mort Garson used for his eerie, Moog-based progressive concept album Black Mass. Lucifer was also a short-lived and little known hard rock band […]

Album of the day:
High on Fire – Luminiferous
Posted: June 17, 2015 at 12:28 pm
High on Fire - Luminiferous

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: It is a fun coincidence of timing that High on Fire‘s seventh album, Luminiferous (released by eOne Metal), should arrive — a summer blockbuster in its own right — just one month after George Miller‘s film Mad Max: Fury Road, since the two works would […]

Album of the Day:
Steve Von Till – A Life Unto Itself
Posted: June 16, 2015 at 4:36 pm
Steve Von Till – A Life Unto Itself

Lovingly pinched from Factory Worker Media: Whether folk music is inherently suited to grim, mature musings or vice versa, the turbulence which permeates the work of a “dark” or “angry” young songwriter seems to catalyze over time, to potentially yield songs that, despite their softer, subtler tread, are broader in […]

Album of the Day:
Les Discrets – Live At Roadburn
Posted: June 15, 2015 at 3:52 pm
Les Discrets - Live at Roadburn

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: Live albums always feel, at best, a little bit redundant to me. Live music is an all-round sensory experience – the sights, the smells, the volume and the engagement are all things that are bred from actually being there and unless the band intend on […]

Album of the day:
Sammal – Myrskyvaroitus
Posted: June 12, 2015 at 5:33 pm
Sammal - Myrskyvaroitus

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: You might remember a year or so ago we covered a little EP by a Finnish band called Sammal, who sing in their native tongue and pay homage to some of the great prog and heavy rock bands of the ’70s. That debut EP […]
