Tiny Boys-Tiny Boys

Artist: 
Tiny Boys
Release: 
Tiny Boys
Label: 
af-music

Well,Tiny Boys...There must be something nice going on in Sweden,really,musically speaking,at least!The reason for making this statement is that I've listened to a lot of swedish bands lately,who have literally exceeded my expectations.And believe me,by that I do not mean the famous ones...To our topic then:this band's music could be categorised as an eclectic blend of energetic indie/post punk rhythms,full of melody,along with Camilla Karisson's gorgeous voice.

Sabbath Assembly-Ye Are Gods

Artist: 
Sabbath Assembly
Release: 
Ye Are Gods
Label: 
Ajna Offensive/Svart Records

The Work presented here is the second opus of Sabbath Assembly.Since this is definitely conceptually driven music,some words on my behalf would be needed,in order to shed some light to this band's spiritual background.To cut a long story short,this ensemble was created on an impulse to perform hymns,that were originally conducted by the Process Church of the Final Judgement.This institution(or cult,if you may)had its heyday back in the 60's,at a time when lots of individuals were experimenting with "bizarre" religious ideas.The main characteristic of the former organizatio

Mundtot-Spatsommer

Artist: 
Mundtot
Release: 
Spatsommer
Label: 
Echozone

What we are dealing here is Mundtot's debut full length.This band obviously comes from Germany,something evident since their compositions are sang in their native tongue.Prior to this disc,they had released an ep,which was simply called"Endzeit".This band's orientation could be traced along the lines of alternative rock,as well as modern gothic rock.The first thing that someone notices,is the central role that is reserved for Tino's vocals.Indeed,it is Tino Wagner's charismatic performance that ultimately leads these songs.Now,that certainly does not mean that ther

Paranoid Android-No Way Out

Artist: 
Paranoid Android
Release: 
No Way Out
Label: 
Echozone

Yet another review on a band whose existence I completely ignored,up to now,that is!This Teutonic duo choose to describe their sounds by using a label such as "Future New Wave".Strangely so,their description happens to be pretty accurate,as I was soon to discover!Truth is that judging by the artwork presentation,I figured that this was yet another typical german electro band.

Conscience-Your Frequency

Artist: 
Conscience
Release: 
Your Frequency
Label: 
Echozone

Starting of,I need to state that the artwork accompanying this disc,is simply amazing!A beautiful digipack,in minimal,black and white overtones!Iknow,it is impossible to judge a book by its cover.Yet,my first impression upon seeing this cd,was overwhelmingly well,for that matter.Moving on,some needed information regarding Conscience should be given:this,in fact,is a solo project,led by Rudiger Illg,who started creating music,back in 1991.Which is a trully long period really,in during which he has released several albums,so far.

Anaal Nathrakh – Vanitas

Artist: 
Anaal Nathrakh
Release: 
Vanitas
Label: 
Candlelight Records

Who needs a typical, non-explicit, dull-inflicted introduction to the mighty Anaal Nathrakh? Unless you live under a rock, you must have come across the most extreme act on planet Earth to date. And when I speak of extreme, the word claims its full, primitive meaning, ladies & gentlemen.

Laburinthos - Augoeides

Artist: 
Laburinthos
Release: 
Augoeides
Label: 
Avant-Garde

Well, as one can propably understand, it is impossible not to observe that this band uses a name of hellenic orienatation-moreover, this release makes use of another greek work as a title.That makes a rather strong reference,indeed,provided the fact that Laburinthos have nothing to do with Hellas, whatsoever, since their country of origin is, in fact, Romania! Secondly, I must admit that never have I heard of them,until now, that is! Therefore, I ignored their existence, completely!

Bionic-Meadowland

Artist: 
Bionic
Release: 
Meadowland
Label: 
Echozone

If someone had to take a guess regarding Bionic's sound identity,just by looking at the artwork of this disc,he/she should simply have to take a look at the song titles.Let me explain myself a bit:apart from the title, each and every one of their tracks, is accompanied by the exact number of beats per minute(bpm), that it contains. Now, that certainly reminds me of a metronome! On a second thought, though, it would not be difficult to assume that this Teutonic duo specialises into delivering electro sounds, of some sort.
