Whalesong - Gateway cover

Review: Whalesong — “Gateway”

There are times when I stumble onto recordings that contain certain elements borrowed from my favorite musicians, all packaged in a cohesive whole. The latest EP from a Polish industrial metal band Whalesong is an example of just that. The first side of the EP starts off with huge chunks

What’s fresh: 5 New Artists of April

Hey-hey! How are you guys doing? It was Easter weekend, but I haven’t keep calm until sharing the best new music with you. Fewer words, more creativities. Let’s get into it! De Kraken Me And The King [electronic/deep house, Rotterdam/Netherlands] This musician is one of the most powerful openings of

Review: White Denim — “Side Effects”

Review: White Denim — “Side Effects”

Since White Denim’s fantastic and criminally underappreciated 2018 release “Performance” I’ve considered myself a pretty massive fan of the band’s music, even if I was late to the party. These guys have an invigorating blend of swirling, electrifying Psychedelia experimentation and accessible, chorus-heavy Classic Rock revival jams that I haven’t

Review: PUP — “Morbid Stuff”

PUP’s morose and delectable blend of The Menzingers and Pinkerton on this album is nothing short of pure candy to my ears. In my opinion, the strongest release they’ve come out with so far! These guys have quickly proven themselves as one of the most interesting and memorable bands of

The BalGuns: Shooting Power Of Balkan Music

Balkan music is unique in many ways. It’s easily recognizable, inextricably linked to its roots, and it manages to remain popular beyond the ever-emerging trends. But what defines it more than own state of origin or the sound of specific instruments? It’s the unmistakable vibe of revelry, devil-may-careness, and, at

Review: Periphery — “Periphery IV: Hail Stan”

Periphery is comprised of some of the most technically unprecedented and talented musicians in the entirety of all modern Metal music. Their guitarist Mark Holcomb isn’t far behind John Petrucci in my book “Who is my go-to answer for the best guitarist of all time” with his gorgeous riffing that
