Lovingly pinched from Beard Rock: Everything is fuzzy. I cannot focus. Something has got me pinned down. Hands gripping my legs. My ankles are near my head. Legs pressed down. I’m naked except for my Holy Mountain t-shirt. My nipples are showing, the left one being licked. Who is on top of me? I look at the face, wild eyed and laughing as it looks back at me. It’s me.
I look down and see my massive cock is entering my anus. My cock twitches in ethereal delight. Why am I shagging myself? What has this got to do with Known Flood, the debut album by Sannhet? It has absolutely nothing to do with it. But I’ve just fed you all a startling description of me fucking myself and I know that you’ve all banked it for later. Amazing.
Sannhet immediately struck me as one of those fucking instrumental bands that you kind of think, why are these cunts so interested in astronauts and not singers?

How do I know this? I don’t. I just get that vibe from the music. It feels like a lonely ship on a vast ocean. There are two sailors on this ship and they are having vicious sex with each other in one of the cabins. The power bottom looks out of the porthole and into the stillness of the night. A storm is coming.

Lovingly pinched from Scene Point Blank: A year after their dissolution, post-metal powerhouse Isis is preparing to digitally re-release its entire live discography on a fortnightly basis throughout the summer of 2011. The set of five—wait, hold up a moment. I finished those last summer. What’s with the new release? ...read more

Praise for Hypomanie‘s Calm Down, You Weren’t Set On Fire from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: The latest from this Dutch one man shoegaze black metal band, whose A City In Mono record was a big hit around here, with it’s fuzzed out dream poppiness and weirdly looped sounding construction. Well ...read more

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: For their fourth album, Empros (first directly for Sargent House), the instrumental three-piece Russian Circles returned to producer Brandon Curtis of The Secret Machines, who also helmed 2009’s Geneva. The reasons why are fairly obvious: What the Chicago outfit was able to accomplish with Geneva ...read more

Lovingly pinched from Metal Underground: The Icelandic heathens that make up Sólstafir continue to push past the boundaries of their origins, hitting a serious landmark in sound on their fourth full-length album, Svartir Sandar. A description like “post-black metal” doesn’t even begin to do the album justice, as these songs ...read more

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: Isis is one that harder to categorize bands I’ve reviewed. With every release they evolved and altered their sound. Generally lumped in with post-rock /post-metal and hardcore metal bands, they do draw from those influences while still adding their own stamp. Live V is ...read more
