CD review SOGGY "Soggy" re-issue

(*/10) Soggy is from France and there is one thing for sure, these guys have nothing to do with traditional chanson. Beb, Eric Dars, Francois Tailleur and Olivier Hennegrave are more inspired by bands like MC5 and The Stooges. The guys started in 1978...

SOCIAL DISTORTION releases a 4 LP-boxset

I got Social Distortion on my radar when the guys released “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell”, an album that saw the light of day in 1992. Mike Ness and his gang filled this record with awesome rock songs. “Cold Feelings", the opener, is still one of...

CD review STIFFY JONES "Narrow Road of Memories"

(6/10) To be honest, I haven’t heard about Stiffy Jones before and I had to get myself up to speed when it comes to the outfit from Scandinavia. This four-piece band was founded in 2005 in Stockholm and it’s Johan Keskitalo (v/g), Calle Sällström(v/g),...

CD review ABSTUERZENDE BRIEFTAUBEN "Doofgesagte leben laenger"

(8/10) I guess that this review isn’t of great interest for some of my readers since it’s about a punk band from Germany that sings in their 1st language – German. However, this new album “Doofgesagte leben laenger” came out of leftfield and I was more...

"Choosing Death - Die Unglaubliche Geschichte von Death Metal und Grindcore geht weiter..."

When death metal and grindcore started in the mid 80's things began slow, but not easy. And it wasn't a silent start either. These extreme styles in heavy metal have been like a blast wthin the existing metal scene, adding a new shade to heavy music....

CD review DARKTHRONE "Arctic Thunder"

(9/10) I think that 'simple' and 'puristic' are two keywords that characterize Darkthrone's newest album "Arctic Thunder". It might be that 'simple' has a negative meaning but not how I use it in this context. The beauty of this blackened release is the...

CD review EXPIRE "With Regrets"

(8/10) I assume that "With Regrets" is more than just a name for a record. I think it's also Expire's way of saying goodbye after seven years of hardcore punk. In those years Expire grew to an important band that reached a wider fanbase, still beloning...
