Wrathprayer-The Sun of Moloch:The Sublimation of Sulphur's Essence Which Spawned Death and Life

Artist: 
Wrathprayer
Release: 
The Sun of Moloch:The Sublimation of Sulphur's Essence Which Spawned Death and Life
Label: 
Nuclear War Now/Ross Bay Cult

Let's begin with some needed information,in order to start this review,in a "proper" manner:Wrathprayer is a trio,hailing from Chile.This specific release is their debut full length album.There was quite some fuzz in the underground concerning this band,therefore it is safe to assume that this release was highly anticipated,in certain underground circles,that is.To that end,this album was simultaneously released,by NWN Productions and Ross Bay Cult.This fact alone,not only stands out as proof of this band's quality,but,moreover,indicates some hints,regarding Wrathprayer

Liquid Grey-Grey Matter

Liquid Grey
Release: 
Grey Matter
Label: 
Echozone

Well,presenting Liquid Grey's work,is a hard task,indeed..So,let me start with some basic,needed information,perhaps.A crucial reference regardind this project,is the fact that their vocalist used to be the singer of the Flowers of Romance.If you are not familiar with the aforementioned project,let me just inform you, that they were an almost legendary hellenic gothic rock band.This adds a strange aura to this norwegian's band work,naturally.Judging by the link between them and Flowers of Romance,I was obviously expecting to listen to something along these lines:goth rock and dark w

Bridges To Disturbia
Label: 
Echozone

What we are dealing here is yet another Teutonic band,this time around emerging from Dusseldorf.It is more than obvious that Echozone has signed a lot of promising local bands,and Voodoma is no exception.I don't know how many of you have heard this band before-yet,Voodoma has existed for quite some time,having released four albums,already.

Fixions-Euphorion

Artist: 
Fixions
Release: 
Euphorion
Label: 
self-released

FIXIONS is an Electro project from Aix-en-Provence, France that have released their debut EP, entitled ‘Euphorion’ some months ago. This project, which is the brainchild of Slo (SMOHALLA), is more than a creative outlet, an additional way of expression it’s a small microcosm of its own, an abberation from the constant in search of an elation, of euphoria, although as uplifting as it can be the dark and atmospheric elements will always be a considerable and integral part of FIXIONS’ music.

Acidcell-Feelin' The Doom

Artist: 
Acidcell
Release: 
Feelin' The Doom
Label: 
Echozone

It is said,that you should not judge a book by its cover-and quite justly,in my opinion!Yet,there are cases in which the above mentioned axiom does not comply.Such is the case of Acidcell:the cover art,along with the band's photos,depicted a disc of electro/goth,with hints of metal's aesthetics,perhaps.Hell,one of them is even wearing a red tie,a fact that immediately reminded me of Suicide Commando's imagery.A few more points before entering "Feelin' The Doom":this four-piece hail from Zurich,Switzerland.Also,this album is said to reflect the band's composing

Revolving Door
Release: 
Milk & Honey
Label: 
Fastball Music

Revolving Door is a band,contrived of four members,hailing from Thuringia,Germany.Their debut album,"Break the Line",was released back in 2010.Since then,they have toured quite a lot,having gained lots of experiences on stage,as they have performed live a lot,so far."Milk & Honey" is their sophomore effort,released by Fastball Music.What this band delivers is simple,yet solid:a branch of alternative rock,exceptionally well wrtitten and played,I should have to add.

Blowsight-Life & Death

Artist: 
Blowsight
Release: 
Life & Death
Label: 
Fastball Music

In case most of you don't remember(which is a natural thing,of course),I had reviewed one of Blowsight's works once again,in the not-so-distant past,that is.What I do remember though,is that I was not exactly overwhelmed by their sonic arsenal,back then.Once more,Blowsight present a similar dilemma to me:while their songs are not bad at all,their music style though is not something special to me.To be more precise,I would have to say that this band's kind of eclectic mix,in between pop,punk and metal,ends up sounding a bit too commercial for my tastes.

Maxxwell-Slapshot

Release: 
Slapshot
Label: 
Fastball Music

Well,this disc is a strange case,to begin with.First and foremost,because the title track of this ep,was written in order to be the official stadium hymn of a German ice-hockey team,EHC Freiburg,respectively.Associations between bands and ice-hockey teams are very rare,if not non-existent,I might observe.So,naturally,this is a fact that needs to be mentioned,right before reviewing this material,that is.

Minus Heart-The Big Idea

Artist: 
Minus Heart
Release: 
The Big Idea
Label: 
Echozone

Minus Heart was a completely unknown moniker to me,to begin with.This project seems to associate itself to the contemporary electro/ebm scene,for the most part,adding some industrial rock parts to the mix, as well.This band emerges from Germany,which is a country that has so far presented many groups and artists connected to the aforementioned genres.Another thing that certainly needs to be mentioned,is the fact that this band's line up has changed drastically before this release,since almost all members have changed,except for Diver,who seems to be the driving force behind this project
