Roadburn Album of the Day: Temporarily On Hold

Posted on Friday, June 19th, 2015

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 in July.

Album of the Day: Lucifer – Lucifer I

Posted on Thursday, June 18th, 2015

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 on Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

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 on Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

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 on Monday, June 15th, 2015

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 on Friday, June 12th, 2015

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 […]

Album of the Day: FOGG – High Testament

Posted on Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: Does the world need another psychedelic power trio in thrall to Led Zeppelin, friendly hallucinogens and biker grease? Probably not, but there are loads of permutations of familiar pleasures whose proliferations are welcome, despite being completely unnecessary to the planet’s well-being: methods of brewing coffee. […]

Album of the Day: Royal Thunder – Crooked Doors

Posted on Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from ThisIsNotAScene: Often bands are formed for a shared love of similar tastes of music. Not only born out of eclectic tastes, Royal Thunder have absorbed these influences into their music to produce an unusual hybrid of Progressive Rock, Classic Rock, Indie, Goth and Grunge. This makes Royal […]

Album of the Day: The Exploding Eyes Orchestra – I

Posted on Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Meat Mead Metal: Over the past few years, Jess and the Ancient Ones have become a revelation in the world of metal and extreme music. Their haunting occult-based sound is infectious and enrapturing, and their powerful singer has pipes that can put the world to shame. Seeing […]

Album of the Day: Insect Ark – Portal/Well

Posted on Monday, June 8th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Angry Metal Guy: Once upon a dark and glum time, also known as the beginning of the dank ‘90s, a bunch of enigmatic German misfits got together, formed a band called Bohren & der Club of Gore, and started playing music that was quite novel for its […]
