Fire From The Gods: Narrative Retold (Album Review)

 

 Once again the office is on fire. This seems to be a weekly occurrence. This time however, the madness is not caused by my inability to consume alcohol and use firelighters at the same time, but instead, it’s caused by the power of music. This is the amazing Fire From The Gods with their latest offering to the gods of chaos, “Narrative Retold“. The songs on this 13 track album come hurtling at the universe from the deepest part of Purgatory. It’s chaos and insanity made flesh. It’s disorder and control united. It’s pure bloody metal.

72 hours and already into live music

 

 I have now been upon England’s green and asphalt covered land for a little over 72 hours. It’s wonderful to be home. (Dover. South-East England to be exact. -Ed) Before me stands a glorious countryside, magnificent cliffs, and a myriad of historic buildings; and within each of these locales a million adventures await to be lived. It’s a fantastic thing to stand in the centre of a small town knowing that there is a plethora of unique and interesting entertainments available within walking distance. Case in point, on Sunday night -while the sun was still up at 9pm- I indulged in a little sojourn at one of the local pubs. (Local pubs! What a statement! We have no pubs in […]

Divinity: The Immortalist (Album Review)

 

 Once again my bedroom walls are on fire. Well, yes, I did get absolutely ass-holed last night; so much so that I awoke this morning with a police woman’s helmet, and a rubber traffic cone in my bed. But that is neither here nor there. What is there, is the fact that my walls are burning and my speakers are spewing out a barrage of powerful Metal. (Perhaps that is somehow related. -Ed) This is “The Immortalist” the latest offering to the gods of Metal, from Divinity. The songs on this 12 track album are about as Metal as any songs I’ve ever heard. It’s the antitheses of rebellion, chaos and feral disorder. Manhunt Atlas Hallowed Earth D M T […]

Doctor She?

“How could they [BBC] let us down like this? How could they fail us so? How could they destroy our hearts and souls? How could they destroy the best TV show ever?! How could they get a filthy female to be the doctor? Well, you know, I am not going to watch it anymore! No I’m not! I’m not!” Well, I say, GOOD! Sod off! We don’t need you and your fanboy bullshit clogging up the universe. For Christ sake, we are in the 21st century you bloody goombas! We have to move with the times, and move on. I wonder if you plebs would have complained if the new doctor was black or Asian? If the doctor was in […]

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Once again we are looking at another game that was previewed at E3. This time we look at another long awaited sequel, this is Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Now we know very little of this game, but as it is obviously the sequel to the amazing Wolfenstein: New Order, the game will naturally be set in Nazi ruled America, where you will take the role of Captain William Joseph Blazkowicz as he aides the resistance in their war against the Reich. (I get the feeling that they have taken a lot of influence from “The Man In The High Castle.” -Ed) Now like the previous games in the title the player gets access to all sorts of esoteric weapons, […]

So Long and Thanks for all the Fish

“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax– Of cabbages–and kings– And why the sea is boiling hot– And whether pigs have wings.” “The time has indeed come, ladies and gentlemen, to talk of other things… and indeed to move on to other things. Today I write my “final” article for 925 Rebellion. For you see folks, the time has finally come for me to step down as the head of 925 Rebellion and move on with my life. (By move on, I mean emigrate.) It’s been a blast, folks.” – Me, last year. It’s been just over a year since I wrote this article, and now, finally, I am on my […]

Empire State Human: Romo (Album Review)

 

 I do enjoy the quiet side of life on occasion. Case in point, I was recently sent a wonderful little synth-pop album that is, I must say, easy on the mind, body and soul. This is Empire State Human with the amazing “Romo“. The songs on this 10 track album, though mellow and moving for the most part, still have the ability to pound at your soul on numerous levels. I Kick Ask Into Grey Night Boy Automation The Invisible Future Sex Dust On Dust My Darkest Hours Nomophobia Walking With Bowie The songs on this album are definitely for those that like emotions other than anger. Songs such as “Into Grey” and “Automation” are wonderfully unique and gorgeously produced. […]

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

It has been a few years since the majority of the world was introduced to the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Since then, numerous games and more have been unleashed upon the world. This is Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. The sequel to Shadow of Mordor continues the tale of Talion -the human/spirit hybrid. In this installment, Talion creates a new ring of power that will either allow him to become a king, or to replace Sauron as the Dark Lord of Mordor. Unlike the previous game,¬†Shadow of War will feature a more fluid action-adventure combat system instead of the traditional hack-n’-slash. Though the game will still be third-person. This game looks like a lot of fun, and it’s definitely worth […]

The Rising Few: Adult Entertainment (Album Review)

 

 There is something wonderful in the combination of energetic Rock music, funky and jig inducing sounds, and fun singable lyrics.

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord

If, like me, you adore the Total War games, then you will have no doubt wondered what it would be like to play as a soldier on those glorious battlefields? Well, now you can.
