  • Brutus - 'Wandering Blind' (Svart Records)
    Blue Cheer Leaf Hound Johnny Winter and Grand Funk Railroad these Swedes and Norwegians have come together to record another album of simplistic no frills pure music no doubt with a splattering of facial hair for good measure Recorded in four days in Oslo Brutus have captured a raw energy that is both refreshing and equal parts honouring to those that have come before them Classic heavy rock with the obvious blues doom axis slashes through all their tracks and when they re as good as Drowning Axe Man or The Killer you can t help but yearn for those golden olden days They re also not afraid to veer slightly away from the obvious Sabbath angle vocalist Jokke Stenby does sound like Ozzy which will always aid or hinder their sound dependent on your viewpoint such as on a song like Creepin which throws a little more rock guitar into the mix or the psychedelic twist of Living In A Daze which finishes off this album It s trippy it s stoner it s got blues and it s doom and it s all deep rooted in a time passed It s also another album to add to the

  • Skold - 'The Undoing' (Metropolis Records)
    and final album 1993 s Violent New Breed hinted at where Tim saw his musical future that visceral vision fulfilled with stints in both KMFDM and Marilyn Manson s band Now via a knob twiddling session or two with Motionless In White he is back with the solo project that he debuted with the simply titled Skold album in 1996 The Undoing was promised to be released in the April of 2014 but rather mysteriously disappeared seemingly forever unforeseen developments the reason But almost as quickly as it melted into the ether a couple of years ago the follow up to 2011 s Anomie is now primed and ready for official release by Metropolis Records Was the wait worth it The answer is in the affirmative as this third Skold album is quite something equal parts bombastic and brooding and as dark as any fan thought it would be yet as impressive as they also hoped While Nine Inch Nails remain the benchmark for this kind of hook smeared industrial rock think über cool dark pop when pop stars still cared about moving people rather than just units it s difficult to throw that in the direction of someone who spent such a length of time in the KMFDM ranks That said there are some songs here opener Triumph Of The Will and closer The Bleeding Heart for example that will satiate the NIN fan in you all A Reznor related comment in a review of a piece of industrial music How unexpected But wait the fractured beauty of Skold lies in the ability to transform mutate just like the chameleon at the helm of the project There s a definite European electro vibe to many of the songs on The Undoing but it s blackened in tone and thought

  • Valley Of The Sun - 'Volume Rock' (Fuzzorama Records)
    Ross Welford Wednesday 20 April 2016 03 40 Tweet Now this is bloody good I always love it when a band blasts out from the speakers and from the very first song they get you interested and with the second album from Cincinnati s Valley Of The Sun they do exactly that Eternal Forever quietly starts before building into a fuzz whirl blast of a track that brings to mind Soundgarden Alice In Chains and Wolfmother BIG vocals bombastic and loud with a tune that sticks in your head from the off Impressive And yes they can and do follow it up with BTV a song that adds a little Kyuss QOTSA guitar work and the pace doesn t let up making this a sure fire one two hit for the band With today s listeners being able to locate and dismiss music at the touch of a button VOTS seem to know this and go all out to make sure that your fingers stay well away from the stop button Although blatantly taking influence from two of the big hitters of grunge you could hardly put this band in that category with definite power and stoner influences shining through as well as classic rock ala Zeppelin being thrown into a blender marked Valley Of The Sun It s a flavour that few could really dislike if you re not a fan of those aforementioned bands then it really doesn t matter because the sum of the parts is much more than it sounds The vocal range and style of Ryan Ferrier will always be an obvious comparison to some of those great singers of those great bands but that s hardly a crime or a bad point is it The songs remain the base point for quality and with

  • Seeds Of Mary - ‘Choose Your Lie’ (Self Released)
    through hard work released their self titled debut album in 2013 The Bordeaux based five piece promote a 90s heavy rock grunge sound channelling the likes of Alice In Chains Guns N Roses and Load era Metallica Following on from a host of live shows at the tail end of last year including slots alongside Nashville Pussy Seeds Of Mary are how ready to unleash their second full length album eleven tracks of new material that has been worked on both in the studio and on the live circuit It s clear from the get go that Seeds of Mary are not messing about when it comes to their influences album opener Under My Bed sounds like it should be on a nineties rock mix tape however this is not a negative There s a swagger to be found on this track that sounds like it could be an outtake from Guns N Roses Use Your Illusion sessions The rhythm section of Xav Bass and Aaron drums anchor the whole thing and allow the twin guitars to interplay and create a very catchy collection of riffs The elements of nineties rock grunge nostalgia continue to bleed through on the album as it progresses through tracks like Crash with a vocal effect similar to that found on Alice In Chains Man In The Box The title track offers something a little different with its excellent blues based groove kick started by an excellent intro guitar lick The track progresses into one of the standout moments on the album as it develops a swaggering groove and builds into a soaring guitar solo before returning the singular blues guitar hook for the fade out Damaged Young Thing has an air of Velvet Revolver s Slither to it with its brooding build up before

  • Seeds Of Mary - ‘Choose Your Lie’ (Self Released)
    worked on both in the studio and on the live circuit It s clear from the get go that Seeds of Mary are not messing about when it comes to their influences album opener Under My Bed sounds like it should be on a nineties rock mix tape however this is not a negative There s a swagger to be found on this track that sounds like it could be an outtake from Guns N Roses Use Your Illusion sessions The rhythm section of Xav Bass and Aaron drums anchor the whole thing and allow the twin guitars to interplay and create a very catchy collection of riffs The elements of nineties rock grunge nostalgia continue to bleed through on the album as it progresses through tracks like Crash with a vocal effect similar to that found on Alice In Chains Man In The Box The title track offers something a little different with its excellent blues based groove kick started by an excellent intro guitar lick The track progresses into one of the standout moments on the album as it develops a swaggering groove and builds into a soaring guitar solo before returning the singular blues guitar hook for the fade out Damaged Young Thing has an air of Velvet Revolver s Slither to it with its brooding build up before it explodes into a high octane riff driven foot stomper Even though there are a whole host of similarities and parallels that can be drawn between the music on Choose Your Lie and a number of other artists within the nineties rock grunge genre Seeds Of Mary have definitely developed their own sound here Tracks like Freak Show that contains a high amount of energy that makes it clear to see why these guys are a hit on
