CD review CULT OF LUNA & JULIE CHRISTMAS "Mariner"

(8/10) Cult Of Luna's new album comes with only five song, but these pack a punch. In the end this record provides you with 55 minutes of confusion, experiments, intensity and depth, unveiling a new approach to post-metal. The guys from Cult Of Luna slightly...

CD review INTRONAUT "The Direction of Last Things"

(8/10) Intronaut from Los Angeles, California are an interesting band. The guys sound very progressive but they are not really a prog band. There are post metal eruptions embedded in their songs, but the guys aren't post metal either. In the end it's...

CD review CODE "mut"
