CD review THE MUTE GODS "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me"

(8/10) The Mute Gods are new to me. I haven't heard of the guys before, considering the founding date of 2014 also not a too big surprise. So I was very curiously looking forward to listen to their debut "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me". I have to admit...

CD review STEVEN WILSON "4 1/2" EP

(9/10) What a start into 2016. The master of prog rock, Steven Wilson, surprises us with new songs. "4 1/2" is the name of a release that should help to bridge the waiting time between the last album "Hand.Cannot.Erase" and the upcoming longplayer. And...

CD review SPOCK'S BEARD "The First Twenty Years"

CD/DVD review DEVIN TOWNSEND presents: "Zilthoid Live at the Royal"

(9/10) Who needs Star Wars if you can also get Ziltoid? At least I prefer Devin Townsend's small little alien that is one the mission to find the best coffee. It was on April 13 this year when Canadian guitar maniac Devin Townsend played a show at the...

CD review BRUCE SOORD "Bruce Soord"

CD review MERCUTIO "Back to Nowhere"

(6/10) Mercutio is actually a character in Shakespeare's 'Romoe and Juliet'. The name is based on 'mercurial' and I think that is what the band wants to be - vivid, but also a bit moody. However, where aren't here for theater arts, we are here to talk...

CD review PINKISH BLACK "Bottom of the Morning"
