ALBUM REIVEW: Harakiri For The Sky – Mӕre

When I received this album to review it snowed here in the UK, a fresh blanket of snow coated much of the country. I sat at my desk, hot coffee in hand and pressed play on the first track.

The mellower parts don’t just serve to … Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: Soen – Imperial

ALBUM REVIEW: Red Cain – Kindred: Act II

One of things I am going to try this year is listen to more new bands and dive into the unknown as I tended to play it safe last year.
