GLOSON – Mara

GLOSON – Mara

Gloson are a quartet (former quintet) from Sweden who seem to be devout apostles of the millennial “NeurIsis” post-sludge metal sound. Focusing on a modern production, the first band that might pop to mind when listening to “Mara” is fellow Swedes Cult of Luna. Fans of Adimiron and Gaerea shall also find something to sink [...]

SHELTHER – When Comes The Flee

SHELTHER – When Comes The Flee

There are some music sub-genres which are not easy to review. Ambient/Drone releases are a good example. Due to its minimalist nature and structure, analyzing something which sometimes doesn’t seem to have a real beginning nor end is a troublesome challenge. Still, anyone can listen to this kind of music, enjoy some and dislike others. [...]

DEUS VERMIN – Monument Of Decay

DEUS VERMIN – Monument Of Decay

In this overpopulated scene, once in a while a band stands out from the rest. Whether it’s because of their unique image, or sonority, or simply because their music is incredibly good (or bad) and they get involved in some hype. Deus Vermin is one of those bands. Coming from the United Kingdom, formed in [...]

How many bands do you know which have ceased to exist while being at their peak? The French band Arkhon Infaustus is one of them.
