Theologian Pain of the Saints

Theologian – Pain of the Saints

Theologian has birthed its most monstrous and allegorical spawn yet with this latest twenty-track full-length release, Pain of the Saints. Since laying the infamous industrial/power electronics project Navicon Torture Technologies to rest in 2009, Lee Bartow has been achieving new levels of transformation within his musical exertions and his overall results remain far from directionless.

Welter in Thy Blood – Todestrieb

“The drive towards death, self-destruction and the return to the inorganic” is the definition of the German word “Todestrieb” given in the press release for Welter in Thy Blood’s album of the same name (and corroborated by Wikipedia  in the exact same wording), a term derived from Freudian psychoanalytic theory. This, incidentally, is the same […]

Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson – So Long

It’s been a while since I came across an album which leaves more questions than answers, especially after multiple listens. So Long is another gem put out by The Helen Scarsdale Agency. With packaging and artwork in their usual vein, and just like Jim Haynes’ Scarlet tape, the text about this record is fantastic (and […]

Jim Haynes – Scarlet

Rarely do you get a press sheet about a record that so perfectly puts into words what you’re really about to hear as the one that I received for Jim Haynes’ Scarlet tape. Actually, it’s exactly the text which got me so hooked to one of the two most recent The Helen Scarsdale Agency records, […]

Chronotope Project Chrysalis Crop

Chronotope Project – Chrysalis

Relaxed Machinery might be one of the best names that I’ve ever seen for a label, not only because it’s just a clever and very visual collocation, but because that name does perfectly illustrate each and every one of their releases that, at any given point, I have come across. This applies with full force […]

Hybryds Mythical Music from the 21st Century Crop

Hybryds – Mythical Music from the 21st Century (2013 Reissue)

I love Hybryds. Their music is a living being that has embraced influences and bits of many cultures, many types of genres, many different approaches, and of course, many years of performing and putting out records. They are perfect in a live setting—loud and hypnotizing—especially when you see them for the first time. But now […]

Sources of I Faces

Sources of I – Faces

Sources of I is a melodic, melancholic black metal band from Sofia, Bulgaria that will soon be releasing its debut EP, Faces, which is a quasi-essential listening piece for the present Hyperborean season. Albeit, there is a fine line which can be distinguished between ‘depressive’ and melodic sub-genres, Sources of I has managed to establish […]
