SOME CALL THIS TRAGEDY “No Man Without A Ghost”

SOME CALL THIS TRAGEDY
“No Man Without A Ghost”
(Sound Patrol Records)
I’m sorry to say so but SOME CALL THIS TRAGEDY sounds like the typical name of a metalcore band of today. You know the band’s that have names that are four words or longer. Bands that I have no relation whatsoever to. Bands that make me feel my age. But I’m no worse than I can learn to like these bands too. Continue reading

SUPURATION “Code3”

SUPURATION
“Cu3e”
(Listenable)
The first time I heard SUPURATION was on a comp CD filled with French extreme metal bands that came out in the early 90s. That was my first real encounter with the harder stuff from the French metal scene. Can’t say that I kept up with SUPURATION after that. 20 odd years later I sit here with their new album in my lap.

THORNGOTH ” SCHWARZ-KARG-KALT”

What I know is that this is death metal. If it is old school Swedish or not I’m not sure of. But what the hell, I’ll just have to listen to the album to figure that one out. Continue reading

X-RAY LIFE “S/T”

X-RAY LIFE
“S/T”
(Atomic Stuff)
There was a time when I was young that I wished I had X-ray specs. That I could look through the girls clothes. What young boy hasn’t wished for that? But living an X RAY LIFE? I’m not too sure about that one though. It must be tough to always see through people all day long. To get to know their most inner secrets. Continue reading
