Marco Minnemann – Celebration

Marco Minnemann – Celebration

Celebration is a surprisingly cheerful, inventive album that finds Marco Minnemann honing his song writing craft further while still being obsessed with creating grooves and having fun. By Cameron Pikó

envy – Atheist’s Cornea

envy – Atheist’s Cornea

This is the album that this band have been destined to make for their entire career. It manages to combine the best elements from all of their previous efforts, all done to a very high standard, and at times throughout, better than they ever have previously. – By Scott Bowden

Interview: Marco Minnemann

Interview: Marco Minnemann

Since we last spoke to Marco he has played on the incredibly well-received Hand.Cannot.Erase by Steven Wilson, toured with Joe Satriani and is about to tour with his other band The Aristocrats. In the midst of all this, Marco took the time out to briefly answer some questions about his latest solo record, Celebration, out now through Lazy Bones Recordings. We talk about his song writing process, and how weird I am for finding this music happy. But he randomly says OINK, so we’re even. By Cameron Pikó

ELE – Chewing Walls Through the House / Gnashing of Teeth

ELE – Chewing Walls Through the House / Gnashing of Teeth

This release is two songs of aggressive sounds. Brandon’s guitar is a sonic wave which cuts through you. The vocals are howling and angry, riddled with angst. – By Daniel Chavez

Barshasketh – Ophidian Henosis

Barshasketh – Ophidian Henosis

They may not move the genre in any way whatsoever but Barshasketh at least stake a claim for their little part of it and this should ride high on many a black metal fans albums of the year lists. – By Martyn Coppack

Old Wounds – The Suffering Spirit

Old Wounds – The Suffering Spirit

‘The Suffering Spirit’ has its bright spots, but it’s mostly boring New Jersey hardcore with overly preachy lyrics. The album isn’t a huge departure from the band’s previous material, but it’s a step in the wrong direction. – By Jeremiah Nelson

Prophets of Saturn – Retronauts

Prophets of Saturn – Retronauts

This album may be only four tracks long, but it takes time to appreciate and you may even have to dig into the past to do so – and if you are patient with this, you might just hear how new some of this old-sounding stuff is. – By Matt Butler

The Grand Astoria – The Mighty Few

The Grand Astoria – The Mighty Few

The album may be one crazy, mixed up ride and test more conservative minded listeners, but to those with an open mind, their world becomes an appealing invitation. – By Martyn Coppack

Rosetta – Quintessential Ephemera

Rosetta – Quintessential Ephemera

This is an extension of the work they have done so far. It is cohesive, ambitious and inspired. Isis have broken up, Cult of Luna are on a hiatus, Rosetta are here to take the throne. Please do give them the respect and recognition they surely deserve. – By Mark Martins

My Sleeping Karma – Moksha

My Sleeping Karma – Moksha

My Sleeping Karma’s latest album ‘Moksha’ is exactly as it should be, and it’s just grand. – By Bruce Cowie
