  • Gravity Thieves – Voiceless Infinity

    Gravity Thieves – Voiceless Infinity

    a review of Voiceless Infinity by Gravity Thieves Sunrise opens this album up on a bitter note. The moodiness of the guitar and even the gritty texture of its tone suggest this dawn is one of reckoning. The song itself is quite repetitive, as is the entire album, but somehow makes this an asset. There’s a…

  • The Mantra Discord – The Lost Widow

    The Mantra Discord – The Lost Widow

    The Lost Widow wastes no time in establishing what they’re all about. The opening title track’s somber guitars saturated with reverb set the mood. The crushing weight of sorrow is felt in an epic distortion-filled outro, accompanied by a feeling of acceptance that fades into the more reserved and contemplative Reach.  Delay in abundance, soaring shimmering overtones,…

  • Silent Whale Becomes A° Dream – Requiem

    Silent Whale Becomes A° Dream – Requiem

    An Epic Tapestry of Darkness and Light album review I can’t remember exactly how I came across this band: whether it was because someone recommended them to me or simply because I was idly browsing playlists and Bandcamp looking to discover new, interesting music. Either way, I remember only needing a few minutes to be…

  • Slint – Spiderland

    Slint – Spiderland

    A Different Kind of Darkness album review The first time I listened to this, I hated it. It was early in my post rock journey; I had been to my first Sigur Rós concert and listened to a couple of bands in the same vein, thinking that’s what post rock “meant”: vast expanses of instrumental…

However, it’s one of the toughest to explain exactly why, and what emotions…

    BRUIT ≤ – The Machine is Burning and Now Everyone Knows It Could Happen Again

    A Radical Album for Radical Times album review I can certainly remember what happened as soon as I listened to its first few minutes. It was immediately apparent that this debut album would change the genre once again and act as a monolith on the landscape of post rock / post metal. It’s no exaggeration to say…
