PIG: Swine & Punishment (Album Review)

 

 I have loved Industrial music for nearly two decades. Fuck, I’m old. Anyway, I’ve loved this band and this genre for a long time. So it’s with extreme happiness, and a vast amount of enthusiasm, that I get to review this brutal album. This is the legendary PIG, with the brilliant “Swine & Punishment“. The songs on this album are remixes by some of the best bands in the scene -except for ‘Violence‘, it’s simply ‘Violence‘. (It’s a violent track. -Ed) Remixes on this album come from bands as diverse as Skold and London After Midnight to bands as unique as Mortiis and the delicious KANGA. Viva Evil (Oumi Kapila Remix) Found In Filth (Pull Out Kings Remix) The Diamond Sinners […]

Elex

I adore the Fallout series. I equally adore Skyrim. (Oblivion was good, but could have been better. -Ed) I also love open world games. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found out about a game that combines all the best elements of these games and then takes it up a notch. This is the mouthwatering ELEX. From what we know of this upcoming game it seems as if we are going to be in for another long-haul adventure that is going to take many, many months to complete. Now the game takes place in the future on a decimated world where the player is thrown into the middle of a war for precious and powerful resources […]

Colossal Street Jam: Living Free (Album Review)

 

 There is something beautiful in the combination of Rock and Blues. There is a depth to the combination that is both invasive and titillating. One might say that it plucks at heart strings while ripping your lungs out, while the neighbourhood is aflame. Then to top off this amazing experience you realise that all this happening is caused by the wondrous Colossal Street Jam with their amazing album “Living Free“. Now the songs on this 11 track album are exactly the sort of music you’d expect from a band made of veteran musicians. There is a ’70’s funk to the group. An ’80’s Rebel yell. A ’90’s uniqueness, and a modern cry of havoc from the 21st century. It’s exactly […]

Fortnite

Now I do not know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed Team Fortress. It was a brilliant game. I got such a kick out of building defences, using unique abilities, blowing Raven off of a bridge three-dozen times. Ah, happy days. Now another thing I’ve enjoyed is fighting off waves of monsters and undead creatures, with the aid of my friends. And watching Raven get blown off of a bridge. So it should come as no surprise to you that when I found out about Epic Games, forthcoming project ‘Fortnite‘ I was blown away… like Raven, off a bridge. Now the reason I am excited about this game is quite simple: It has large nipples covered in cream-cheese. No! That […]

Adam West (19 September, 1928 – 9 June, 2017)

By now many of you will know that the most famous Batman of all time has passed away. No, Raven, not Ben Affleck. He’s still alive and well… maybe. Who cares? No, it is with an acid reflux filled heart that we say “Farewell!” to the great Adam West. Now Adam West was not the first to play Batman (That went to Lewis Gilbert Wilson -28 January, 1920 – 9 August, 2000.) Nor was Mr. West the most successful of all Batmen (That would be Christian “The Angry Man” Bale.) But he was the most popular and long-lived live-action Batman ever! Now this iconic sixties series was the epitome of the “Groovy Age.” It was, for those that have not […]

RTS games you should and shall play (2017)

I adore RTS (Real Time Strategy) games. I do. There is something wonderful about unleashing vast armies against your foes and indulging in a little intergalactic slaughter. Total War: Arena Now the first game on my list is an upcoming free-to-play monster created by the Creative Assembly. In this game, you and nineteen! YES! 19! You and nineteen others get a few units each with which to engage in absolute and total bloody warfare over a number of unique battlefields! Battlefleet Gothic: Armada The second game on my list came out last year. I’m more than a little surprised that it has not received as much attention as it should have. Set in the Warhammer 40K universe the game allows […]

Goteki: Genesis & Revelations (Album Review)

 

 Once again the world has thrown a wonderful compilation album my way. As you know by now, I am excited by compilations. So you can only imagine how thrilled I am to have a magnificent piece of work from a brilliant band to listen to. This is the talented Goteki, and the amazing “Genesis & Revelations.” Where should one begin with a review of such a diverse album as this? Well, probably with a look at the original songs. Now this album, as is its want, is filled with a vast collection of Goteki’s best works. Songs such as ‘Song About a Girl‘ and ‘Shinjuku Lullaby‘ come hurtling out at you from the deepest depths of creative freedom. Phuturist (Echo […]

Starship Troopers

 

 Well my dear friends, our time is drawing to an end. In a little over five weeks I’ll be gone forever. Well, I’ll pop back in from time-to-time, but for the most part you’ll be stuck with Wookiee and his giggly boobs from now on. But before I leave you I’ll attempt to knock out a few more articles. — Now anyone with an internet connection will have heard the news that there is a new Starship Troopers film on the way. Now before we look at the trailer we’ll have a quick look at the history of this beloved franchise. Our franchise began in 1958-1959, when American author Robert A. Heinlein (7 July, 1907 – 8 May, 1988) took […]

Ninjaspy (Band Interview)

 

 Today we speak to Joel from Ninjaspy. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? We have been playing together since 1999 when we were teenagers. We played all kinds of different styles back then, figuring out what we liked. Turns out we liked a lot of things. So we spent our creative energy on mixing genres together. We became Ninjaspy in 2006 and put out an album, Pi Nature, that brought ska, reggae and metalcore together. Since then it has been pretty much all touring in Canada and Japan with a short EP release in there, No Kata. A few years ago we whipped up a new batch of song soup and got the ball rolling to make Spüken, which we just released […]

Upright Man (Band Interview)

Today we chat to the members of Upright Man. What’s the history of Upright Man? Max: Their story began several millennia ago. The Upright Man, or Homo Erectus, was a species of human that lived during the Pleistocene Epoch from about 1.6 million years ago to 250,000 years ago. Now extinct, Homo Erectus was the first species of humans to master fire, and its remains have been found in Africa, Europe, and Asia. It is widely thought to be the direct ancestor of modern humans. Nick: It pretty much resembles the opening sequence of “History of the World Part I.” (A good film. -Ed) Aidan: We are all Upright Men, but as far as the band goes, we’ve been around for 2 […]
