New Disease: Patent Life

 

 At first the power is abditive. But soon the grinding guitars, singalong vocals and the classic rock drumming spew out from every corner of your sound system -causing a frenzy of enjoyable movements. ‘Patent Life’ is the latest offering from London based band, New Disease. It is probably their best work to date. The songs on this excellent, 15 track, album are full of emotion, style and head-bopping pride. Songs like ‘Black and Blue’ and ‘Hold On’ are powerfully performed and magnificently written pieces of ‘pure’ Rock music. Overall ‘Patent Life’ is an amazing album that plucks all the right Rocker strings. It is available on website.

Tactical Module: Before Crisis

 

 This album, like the band, is an abattoir for the mind, body and, if you like, soul. ‘Before Crisis’ is the latest offering by British Experimental-Industrial band, Tactical Module. Like their previous work ‘Before Crisis’ is not an album for lovers of gentle music and pleasant afternoon strolls along the promenade. The songs on this, 9 track, album are fast paced and aggressive. The guitars are roaring; the drumming is belligerent and riddled with a tribal fury that makes one want to sack Rome… again! As for the the lyrics, they are hard-hitting and ‘in your face’ -all angry politics and antagonistic pride. Songs like ‘To The Skies Of Oblivion’ and ‘Poison Within’ will have you embracing anarchy, taking to the […]

Infidelix: Nomadic

 

 I don’t believe rappers breathe. They string sentences, paragraphs, even novels together, while a beat is played in the background, seemingly without exhaling once. That is impressive. If this is as far as a musician’s talent goes and that is the extent of their achievements however, they can hardly be called “good”. We now cast a critical ear on the album ‘Nomadic’ by American rapper Infidelix. Is it dope? https://soundcloud.com/infidelix/irving-feat-killah-priest-1 When you hear the lyrics sprint by initially, Infidelix seems skilled and he sounds pleasurable to the ear. He has a constant fast flow and a traditional rap feel lyrically. The background music is a tad less standard as electronic noises and occasional skipping of the track can be heard. […]

Noir: Darkly Near

 

 If Kraftwerk, Wolfsheim and Absurd Minds had a child its name would be Noir, and ‘Darkly Near’ would be its hauntingly beautiful declaration to the world. ‘Darkly Near’ is an amazing album. Right from the off the songs drift across the ether like ghostly dead petals -all gentle and somewhat disturbing. Tracks like ‘A forest’ and ‘My Dear’ -like all the tracks on this album- send shivers down your spine that are  stimulating and titillatingly erotic. Overall ‘Darkly Near’ is a magnificently simple album, that’s gentle on the ears and kind on the soul. This one is a must for those who are bored of aggro music. ‘Darkly Near’ is available on  website and Bandcamp.

Digicore: More Than Just An Ape

 

 At first the album is slow and gentle, the opening score floats gently through the ether like a feather drifting to earth. But then! The album explodes as pounding drums, driving guitars and Industrial madness swarm across the void. “More Than Just An Ape” is the latest offering by British band, Digicore. They remind me a little of NIN – though a lighter version. The majority of the songs on this, 11 track album are fast and aggressive. Songs like Disconnected and The Great Devourer are intense and brimming with driving power and a grinding intensity that could force the dead to abandon their graves. This is not an album for ‘easy’ music fans. Overall More Than Just An Ape […]

the hobbit: the battle of the five armies

There are those within the Geek community who claim that all films and series based on literature or games should NOT deviate 1% from the source material. These people will not care for the final chapter of Sir. Peter Jackson’s -The Hobbit. Then are those, like myself, who take fiction for what it is -FICTION! Made up stuff that can be interpreted as one sees fit; for even IF the film or series deviates from the source material perhaps its very existence will inspire those ‘not in the know’ to go and view that material at a later date…. or something like that. Regardless, The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, was well worth the watch! For those of […]

Jensen: Zero One

 

 ‘Zero One‘ is the latest offering from British band Jensen. The album may only consist of five tracks, and may only be twenty minutes long, but it hits like an eighteen-wheeler slamming into a brick wall. The combination of Hard Rock, Industrial and a little experimental weirdness makes this album incredibly entertaining. In fact I would say it reminds me of old PRICK and Front Line Assembly. Perhaps the best part on this awesome little album is the cover of Duran Duran’s classic ‘Wild Boys’. Which has been so lovingly done and so fantastically performed that it alone is worthy of eternal praise. Overall ‘Zero One‘ is a brilliant album and well worth the FREE download. It’s available on Bandcamp.

Resident Evil 6

 

 This could be long winded as there is much to cover so ill shorten it, there are 3 campaigns, each with two characters, an so you can play each campaign twice, each with different weapons and fighting styles, each slightly different then their count parts play through. You can also play as Ada Wong, from Res Evil 2 & 4 and with the recent update, you can now play Ada’s campaign as Ada or as a soldier any Res Evil fan will say looks like Mr. Death aka Hunk Leon’s Campaign: the President is about to “come clean” over the incident in Raccoon City when he becomes infected during bio-terror attack by Neo Umbrella, you partner with Helena Harper. For […]
