    There’s peering into a forest from its terminus, your mind’s eye giving shape to indistinguishable shadows, and then there’s wandering deep within, so deep you lose yourself in games of mushroom hunting and amateur entomology. Argentinian instrument-maker Barrio Lindo’s 2012 EP, Sistema Respiratorio, accomplished something like the former, but its follow-up, 2013’s Libres, was all latter. That project’s standout track, “La Cueva,” now serves as the first single for Lindo’s debut LP, Menoko, which contains five of Libres’ six songs,…

    So, I came home late last night and my sig-nif was way-way sick. I’m not sure what was wrong. It was either kidneys or gas. It was, “It always feels like I’m sick and you’re never.” It was in a weird way that, but not that. Maybe it’s how they say the sicker you are earlier in life, the less you are when you’re older because you build up a tolerance. But if you DON’T get sick often when you’re younger, your resiliency over time wears off, and you realize you’ve been sick all this time. Or like the movie the 12th Knight and Antonio…

  • Delain – The Human Contradiction Review

    Delain’s new album The Human Contradiction is put under the microscope…or in the ear? I don’t know, metaphors are hard.   Metal is a pretty unfair category, especially for bands like Delain..  To the masses it evokes a thrashing, masked Corey Taylor ranting pained metaphors into a mic. It does an injustice to the wide variety within (not to mention Corey Taylor). It’s akin to using the word mammal and everyone pictures a grizzly bear as opposed to a flying squirrel. There is nothing flighty or squirrely about The Human Contradiction. The usual blend of ethereal…

    Delain and Within Temptation have a complicated origin story. But they make one hell of a pairing at a live performance. There are three main names in the subsubsubgrenre of symphonic metal at the moment: Nightwish, Within Temptation and Delain. (With a nod to contenders like Epica and Sirenia). Two of the Northern Europe trio are touring to promote their respective new albums, and they graced Glasgow’s O2 academy with their presence. We contacted Delain’s management and were granted a photo pass and interview!   Pictures first. Scroll down for the review!   Delain…

    Mastodon have unveiled the first track from their forthcoming album “Once More Around The Sun“. The track, entitled “High Road“, is classic Mastodon with a new twist. The trademark meaty riffs are there, but the songs chorus shows off a more anthemic sound from the sludge metal kings that we only heard very briefly on their previous album “The Hunter“. “Once More Around The Sun” is produced by Nick Raskulinecz, well known for his work with Deftones, and is set for a release sometime in June. You can listen to the new track on the bands official…

  • Metallica – ReLoad – Case Stated!

    A double release can be a risky move, especially if the two recordings are put out individually. If part one of the release isn’t well received then there’s a big chance the second piece won’t fare any better, especially if it follows the same direction musically. If the audience is put off from the first effort, why should they open their arms to its follow up? Well, maybe because you’re Metallica. Releasing a sequel to 1996′s poorly received Load album was a risky move in so many areas but Metallica did it anyway, essentially signing themselves a double death…
