Call of Duty: Ghosts

 

 When Call of Duty: Ghosts was announced I joked that the name implied that the developers were aware the series had died years ago and the game would be nothing but a corpse stinking up store shelves. I couldn’t understand how a rotting corpse still sold thousands if not millions of copies and why the series still existed. Ever since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the series has been repeating the same song and dance with every title, the only way to distinguish one from another was to quit to the main menu. I prefer the Battlefield games but always run through the Call of Duty games that release just to compare. Did I find anything worth liking in […]

Ded.Pixel – Form Follows Function

 

 There is something militaristic -one might even say Machiavellian- about this album. Right from the off the marching beats and industrial nuances send a tingling up and down your spine. This is ‘Form Follows Function‘ the debut album from Ded.Pixel. Though the album is short -5 tracks in total- it is filled with a powerful and driving music that is both easy on the ear and hard on the soul. Tracks like ‘Malignant’ and ‘Nil’ are constantly advancing, as if marching across a battlefield to certain doom. Overall ‘Form Follows Function‘ is a fantastic debut piece for an emerging band. I look forward to seeing that the LP brings. The album is available on TrashDigital.

The Mothertown

 

 Some of you might recall that we spoke to British film director John Williams, last year. Do you recall that? Come on. Don’t lie. We know you remember that interview. It was legendary and stuff. Well today we review his interesting little low budget zombie film, The Mothertown. Now at this point in 21st century most of us have zombies coming out of our ears. And most of those zombies are blood soaked gits that ooze vileness. 20 what’s its later; Dawn of the you know what; Walking thingamabobs. You know the rest. Zombies! Zombies everywhere! But on occasion we get a truly entertaining bit of zombie humour. And this is one of those times. After all, when last did […]

Fury – A film about a tank and its crew

 

 Fury” (Dir. David Ayer) is a dramatic war film that follows a United States tank crew in the closing days of World War II. It is a wonderfully simple and predictable story that is incredibly well told. This is the kind of film that shows that you don’t need a complicated script that keeps surprising the audience to have a good film, you just need to know how to treat your content, and Screen Writer and Director David Ayer definitely knew what he was doing when he sculpted “Fury”. The driving force behind the success and power of this film is the characters, their individual depth as well as the depth of their respective relationships. The characters don’t necessary develop […]

Vieon -The Sound Of The Future

 

 There is something magical about the opening score. The drone of the deep synths; the Science-Fictionesque electro noises; the soft, yet driving, drums. It is truly a touching piece of music. But then again, this IS Vieon! And this piece of magical music is from their latest album ‘The Sound Of The Future.‘ (It lives up to its name.) https://soundcloud.com/mattwild/only-human The songs on this, 9 track, album make one yearn for the heydays of 90’s and early 20’s electronic music. Songs like ‘Lost Worlds‘ and ‘Only Human‘ are gentle on the ears and gorgeously calming -the mind wanders off all nonsense and free. There are few actual lyrics and vocals on the album and those that are there lack all […]

Permission: Collapsable Love

 

 What can I say about Permission, apart from the fact that they are so new they have virtually no online presence? Well… a little bit, I must confess. There is something about Permission’s sound, particularly regarding their album ‘Collapsable Love‘ that reminds me a lot of Goldfrapp. Songs like ‘8 am‘ and ‘Vortex Kiss‘ are velvety and soft-hearted. There is nothing aggressive and malicious about Permissions sound. “I wrote most of the tracks on Collapsable Love after being inspired by certain sounds, mostly sourced from the Absynth and Massive plug ins and the Micro Korg. I played with these sounds in the mind to create music that blended the mood or tonality of some of my favorite artists (Depeche Mode, The Cure, […]

Review: Assassin’s Creed Unity

 

 “Ce est un examen de l’unité de Assassin Creed, le jeu sur un stabber la gorge encore moralement entraîné fantaisie.” The above is what you get when you put “This is a review of Assassin’s Creed Unity, the game about a fancy yet morally driven throat stabber.” Into Google translate. I tried reversing the translation and got something entirely different, try it for a laugh, I’ll wait. In Assassin’s Creed Unity you play Arno Victor Dorian, a French assassin active during the terror of the French Revolution. As a young lad Arno’s dad is murdered and Arno is taken in by the father of his love interest, Elise. Years later Arno has become a brave and deviant teen in Versailles; and […]
