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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Westworld (Series Review)

 

 A large number of people adore cowboy films. A vast number of people love sci-fi. A goodly gang of people delight in thrillers. And a few people love all three of them combined into a single show. Welcome to the robot filled Wild West. Welcome to the madness that is Westworld. The show is based on the book of the same name written by the legendary Michael Crichton (23 October, 1942 – 4 November, 2008) and loosely based on the films ‘Westworld’ (1973) and ‘Futureworld’ (1976).  The series is set in the near future and focusses on a Wild West theme park that allows wealthy humans to interact with robotic facsimiles (Hosts), engage in adventures, become part of their own […]

GAMES!

I adore video games. Now this yeas, 2017, promises to be a year for some amazing video games. Let’s have a look at some of them. The Surge (It is out by now. This article was written a few weeks back. -Ed) This looks like an amazing game. From what we know of it the game combines RPG elements with unique combat experience (you use an exoskeleton suit) to help you combat across a dystopian world. Star Trek: Bridge Crew Now here’s a game for Wookiee. In this Star Trek game you and a group of “friends” take command of a Starfleet ship and engage the Klingons in a punch up or two -that is assuming you’re not beating your […]

Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance (Film Review)

 

 I’d like to start off by saying this: People are fecking stupid! I’ve recently seen a number of “reviews” for this film and most of them seem to be suffering under the illusion that this is meant to be a top quality film. IT’S NOT! It’s supposed to be an amusing little indie action-comedy that is a sequel to a early ’90’s cult classic. In short, it’s a bit of fun for the fans. STOP TAKING LIFE SO SERIOUSLY! Right, now that that is over with we’ll get to this amazingly entertaining indie film. Right, so in 1991 a small gang of Americans produced a direct-to-video action-comedy that was considered so bad and so cringe worthy that it became an […]

Hexheart: Midnight On A Moonless Night (Album Review)

 

 It’s not everyday that I get surprised by an album. In fact it is quite a rarity for me to listen to something that blows me away on multiple levels. So I am glad to say that today is one of those days. This is the wonderful Hexheart, with the absolutely brilliant “Midnight On A Moonless Night“. The songs on this 10 track album represent the crème de la crème of the EBM and Industrial scenes. There is a wonderful combination of danceable synths and moving drums mixed with a powerful, yet not too brutal, vocal style that together paint a myriad of exotic and esoteric canvases in a billion colours and with a trillion brush strokes.  A Thousand Times […]

American Standards: Anti-Melody (Album Review)

 

 The mainstream news media will tell you that Metal is nothing more than a corpse that is being feasted upon. Soon Metal will be gone and the world will embrace Flip-Flop and Plop and other forms of factory produced swill. BUT! Those who think for themselves. Those with passion and pride. Those lucky few know! that Metal is evolving, mutating, regenerating. Metal is not going anywhere. Case in point. This is the brutal American Standards, with their amazing album of mainstream media destruction, “Anti-Melody“. The songs on this 8 track album combine, and unleash, the best that the Alternative scene has to offer. The music is explosive and aggressive. There is chaos and insanity in every cord. There is madness […]

The Damn Truth: Devilish Folk (Album Review)

 

 There is nothing like the joy one gets from hearing well thought-out and brilliantly constructed Rock music. It’s moving. It’s powerful. It does something physical and erotic to your mind, body and soul. It’s wondrous on numerous levels. This is the brilliant band, The Damn Truth, with their amazing offering to the elder gods of Rock, “Devilish Folk“. The songs on this 12 track album spill forth from the very bowels of the Rock genre -it’s power and style in equal amounts; riddled with a quantity of volta inspiring energy. It’s as real as Rock music gets. White Lies Pirates & Politicians Plastic Flowers Wouldn’t Be Lying Broken Blues Alex Heart Is Cold Get With You The Match Hangin On […]
