Myrkur – M

image

This has been a hugely anticipated lp for me. And I was totally satisfied by it. Tonight I’ll have the pleasure of seeing Myrkur live, and I really look forward to it.

Tribulation – The Children Of The Night

IMG_9767

I first learned of Tribulation after reading a review of their 2008 album The Horror. I bough it, and loved it. The thrashy death metal on that lp is fresh and invigorating. Listening to The Horror while writing this review, I am surprised to find that I can recognize many details in it, that reminds me of The Children Of The Night. But still, The Horror is quite straight forward.

The Children of The Night is anything but straight forward. Laddies and gentlemen. We might have the beginning of the future of metal here.

There, I said it!!

The Children Of The Night¬†is a fantastic lp. I have listened to it quite a lot since its release, and haven’t really begun to fathom its depths yet. But smack my arse and call me Charlie! This is some good music, that transcends genres and rules. I taste Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Ulver and so many other influences. I’ll be surprised if this lp oesn’t end up on top of many a Best of 2015-list.

Did I mention that it is a double vinyl with music on three sides, and a cool etching on side 4?

I might return with a better review – maybe even a track by track – later. For now, I’ll just engulf my self in the musical bliss that is The Children Of The Night!

Gruesome – Savage Land

IMG_9756

Today I got this lp in my mailbox, and was somehow sent back to the late mid-1980’s. Everything on this record reeks of said period, even the classic artwork.

The comparison to the first couple of Death albums is easy, and I also catch a whiff of early Autopsy here.

Enough said, get your hands on this soon-to-be-classic!

Kazumoto Endo/Penis Geyser – Split

PG

Well well well… Some sick shite going on here. Kazumoto Endo¬†delivers a harshish noise track, and does a very good job of it. Penis Geyser is a noisegrind band from Ohio, that has released some excellent split 7″s during the last 5 years.

KENDO

I like both artists a lot, and was stoked at the news of them doing a split, I like splits with bands of different genres. I haven’t been able to track down a video featuring this particular release, so here are some other stuff from these madmen.

Delightfully brown vinyl too.
