Latest Reviews - June 21, 2016
Cattarse
(Black Water)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.8 of 11
Genre: Hard rock
Sounds Like: Wolfmother, Royal Blood
Hailing from Porto Alegre, Brazil (just about 18 hours from Rio De Janeiro where this year’s Summer Olympics will be played) we welcome Cattarse to our list of bands flying under the radar. The three piece band delivers nine solid hard rock tracks that work well in its entirety.Black Water is ... Full Review and Video Clip
Swan Valley Heights
(ST)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 10.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Samsara Blues Experiment, Arenna
The Germany based trio's debut Self-Titled album is wise beyond its years. Swan Valley Heights delivers a very mature and tight album that strategically spirals through classic stoner, doom, sludge and ethereal space laden rock. The threesome have a very natural chemistry that can best be d... Full Review and Video Clip
Archaic Decapitator
(Light of a Different Sun)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.6 of 11
Genre: Death Metal
Sounds Like: Hypocrisy, Insomnium, Behemoth
The Death metal genre is so hit or miss with us, so when we come across a band that shows promise, we jump all over it. Welcome Connecticut’s five-piece death metal band Archiac Decapitator and their second EP Light of a Different Sun. These guys do not sound like they are from Connec... Full Review and Video Clip
Flynotes
(The Smell Of Space)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Heavy psyche drone, Space rock
Sounds Like: Dead Meadow, Russian Circles, Sons of Otis
Flynotes is a three-piece outfit from St. Petersburg, Russia. Their musicianship is very impressive as they have unleashed a unique combination of instrumental psychedelic and space rock upon the world. The music is very dense and mesmerizing, these five tracks have impressed the hell out of us. It ... Full Review and Video Clip
Death Index
(ST)
2016
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.9 of 11
Genre: Punk, Post-goth
Sounds Like: So-pitted, Heat Dust
Two man bands are no longer a novelty. They have become quite commonplace in today's alternative and garage rock scene. It's all about gaining efficiencies and a deceptively big sound. Death Index's self-titled debut takes a new twist on two man band popularity by infusing punk and goth with surpris... Full Review and Video Clip
Adrift For Days
(Lunar Maria)
2010
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Doom
Sounds Like: Electric Wizard, Acid Bath
Weighing in at nearly 71 minutes, Australia's Adrift For Days' 2010 saga Lunar Maria is certainly worth your time. Our primary motivation for reviewing this album is in anticipation of their newest album to be release in a few months. We find the champions in this genre are often the most p...

Under
(ST)
2016
Staff Rating: Turn this to 6.2 of 11
Genre: Heavy rock, Grunge
Sounds Like: Local H, Fireball Ministry
From Nevada welcome newcomers Under with their debut “Self-Titled” release. The band displays a raw hard rock sound with touches of 90s grunge rock, think Local H meets Fireball Ministry, not a bad combination. Before the formation of UNDER, in 2014 they performed as an instrumental grou... Full Review and Video Clip
Elk + Mammoth
(Culprit)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.6 of 11
Genre: Indie
Sounds Like: Gomez, Oingo Boingo, Fleet Foxes
We love the idea of a concept EP and appreciate the lyrical depth that Elk + Mammoth bring to the table. Their new EP entitled Culprit explores the conscience of the guilty party setting place just after a crime scene has occurred. The Australian foursome have delivered an extremely crisp a... Full Review and Video Clip
Eleanora
(Allure)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Sludge, Post metal, Hardcore
Sounds Like: Cult of Luna, Herder, ZAO
We know, the genres and bands listed above make this sound as if there will be too much packed into this one. Well, to our delight the debut album from Belgium’s Eleanora is quite the surprise. These four tracks weighing in at 45 minutes combine elements of grinding sludge, melodic doom, inten... Full Review and Video Clip
Elevators To The Grateful Sky
(Cape Yawn)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Hard rock
Sounds Like: Foo Fighters, Sugartooth, Silverchair
Elevators To The Grateful Sky (ETTGS) is a difficult band to pin down. The quartet hails from Sicily and certainly pack a ton of effort into 47 minutes and thirteen songs. If you are looking for a consistent sound or an album to put you in a certain mood... look elsewhere. If you are looking for a b... Full Review and Video Clip
