Red Moon Architect Kuura Album Review

Kuura is the fourth album by Finnish funeral doom band Red Moon Architect. This differs tremendously from their last three records. Raw, unpolished, and unforgiving. Kuura part 1 starts us off with witchhamner like drums and a slow and forlorn agonizing atmosphere. Has a early black metal like production, the improvised vocalizations sound like souls being eviscerated in hell itself. But the music is absolute funereal beauty. It breaks down to droney guitar with synth in the background. This is one of the most unnerving records ever created. Kuura part 2 fades in with sinister cosmos like synth creating the bleakest, desolate atmosphere. The synth created cosmic wind with the eerie notes send chills up the spine. The soundscapes created paint a horrid image in your head. The final piece, Kuura par 3 starts off with a very solemn synth. Embracing the beauty of death. Incredible vibes and musicianship. Cascading guitars and the graveyard fog synth creating melody. Forlorn improvised voc…

L.A. Guns The Devil You Know review

The Devil You Know is L.A. Guns upcoming album, and it fucking rips, man. A nice next step after the awesome album The Missing Peace. Soundwise, it is like the debut album mixed with Hollywood Vampires and the first Brides Of Destruction record. Angry, sleazy, sexy, dark, and intense.
The album kicks off with the punky Rage, a powerful tune raw with Phils’ amazing vocals. musically it is reminiscent of Brides Of Destruction. Such a great start to the record. Balls out rock with a great hook. Stay Away has such a great groove, similar to Malaria. Tracii’s riffs are always top notch and this is a prime example. The production is raw in a good way, it’s not to polished and truly sounds like rock should. A face melting solo. Fuck I missed these dudes. Phil is sounding fantastic. Loaded Bomb starts off a bit bluesy, and just kicks so much ass. It rocks hard and punches you in the face with intensity and attitude, but also makes ya wanna groove or fuck. it’s got that groove, that swagger. Aft…

London Call That Girl Review

Call That Girl is the first London album since 1990. The band is still top fucking notch, and the album is fucking incindiary.
The album starts us off in totally classic London sound with Far Away. Melodic, old school, and rockin’. A rippin solo, and even in the cold of winter, this album reaks of california sun and sleaze. Welcome back London, we missed ya and we need ya. The title track Call That Girl has a total 80s vibe. Sneering,attitude filled with great hooks. Holy shit this is a rockin anthem. The sexy swagger of Aerosmith and the balls of early Van Halen. This is one helluva comeback record. I Fell In Love With A Rebel is such a vibey, melodic tune. Wonderful atmospheres. Beautifully dark. With an upbeat chorus, it's such a powerful song. Such A surprising record. It's so fresh but old school. A balance hard to achieve. Reach Up To The Skies has a slower, almost Dio like vibe. Such a powerful vocal, littered with passion, and then a transcending guitar melody brings on a …

Geezer Spiral Fires EP Review

Geezer are a trippy doom band injected with the blues from Kingston,NY. Their latest EP Spiral Fires is another great Cosmic Stoner Blues record. Spiral Fires part 1 starts off with very trippy sound effects reminiscent of Pink Floyd. Very spacey. Then a dirge, raunchy blues riff comes and this three piece does crushing blues similar to that on the first two Black Sabbath records. The groove and the lyrics combine perfectly to create an awesome song. So fucking heavy and spacey. The production is wonderful and raw. Spiral Fires part Two starts off with the same riff but played quietly with the drums while the guitar is floating and buzzing over by saturn echoing throughout the milky way. Then a amazing atmospheric solo comes through. Sublime improvised vocalizations come in as well, such a vibey tune. Darkworld starts off with the muddiest guitar tone ever heard as this heavy psychedelic tour de force in all the ills in society. Such a tight band with astral pastels painted sonically  …

Vanha Melancholia Review

Melancholia is the second album by Vanha from Sweden. As the title suggests, it's a beautiful Death Doom album. With atmosphere of longing and desperation and dark tranquility permeate like a moon over a mausoleum.
The Road starts us off with dark soft ambient guitars slowly rising from a rotting tomb. Spoken word insues as the music builds ever so slowly and forlorn. Then it kicks in. So slow and despair ridden, medieval, and beautiful. Amazing guitar work, solos are amazing. Almost reminscent of Iron Maiden in sense of the melodies guitar wise here. Absolutely astonishing. Storm Of Grief has some beautiful riffs here. Haunting and creating an atmosphere that's thick and intense and beautiful all at the same time. Using growls on this one, its so fucking amazing. So heavy it could crush a church. And yet its got the funereal vibes. The musicianship is top notch and cant be questioned. Starless Skies starts off with beautiful strings and synth overtop a sullen soft guitar riff. …

     When did you decide you wanted to be a singer in a rock n roll band?

In the beginning I didn’t really decide to do it, it was thrust upon me haha. My best mate when I was 12 years old got a guitar for Christmas one year and I’m pretty sure before he could even play a note, he decided that he was going to start a band and I was going to be the singer. So I just took it from there and it basically became my entire identity, it took me a long time to get actually any good at singing though! Haha. I’ve been thinking back on different things from my childhood re…
