Broken Hope’s Mutilated and Assimilated – Whatever It Is, It’s Ugly And Its Pissed Off
21st June 2017, 14:03
Posted by Tristan

One of the darker routes of cinema, Horror is in its own interpretation the portrayal of that dark place, the place we never want to find ourselves in. A place where fans flirt with the idea of danger yet remain perfectly at ease in their seats. Taking this same ideaology into account Death Metal is very much a similar trip in a more aural sense. Depictions of graphic violence, horrendous creatures and a whole lot of nastiness, there’s nothing quite like it. Known to be a huge horror movie fan, one Jeremy Wagner has been fusing the two together for more than twenty five years with his Brutal Death Metal outfit Broken Hope. Returning with 2012’s lecherous offering that was Omen of Disease the band have recouped their creative effort to return for what could be their most horrendous release yet, Mutilated And Assimilated.

Music can be sophisticated to the highest level but what does sophistication mean? Not one for taking the easy route, Brann Dailor is very much a perfectionist yet what shines through just as much is a sense of voyage. Swapping King Crimson for Tangerine Dream, a different kind of sophistication presents itself in the form of Arcadea.

Our Future Isn’t Bright According To Sikth’s Eyes

Modernity can be a truly wondrous ideal. The ability to instantly connect to whatever or whomever you wish to when you’re half way around the other side of the world is something only that we would have dreamt of in the future. Nevertheless as with many things, it can be a double edged sword. With the advent of technology, we are becoming far too reliant on being connected, to the point where we are sadly just a mirage of what people deem to be connected.

Album Review : Code Orange – Forever

Posted by Tristan

Life is hard as the saying goes. Born with a silver spoon some never need to work at all for their merits and will simply be set for life, others might be less fortunate. Delusional to the arduous reality of the real world the silver spoons have nothing to go through but the hard boiled, harsh understanding of rusted spoons goes a long way. Hard to describe as a musical quality the idea of ugly music is somewhat out of the box. Falling out of the ugly tree and hitting every branch on the way down, Code Orange present to us some of the most downtrodden  riffs to hit 2017. Shown their brand new concoction of vehemence and grit, welcome to the world of Forever.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, suffering somewhat of a speed bump after the set back that was the departure of longtime vocalist Chance Garnette, Skeletonwitch slowed down somewhat. After the deadly strike that was Serpents Unleashed the band were uncertain which direction to go in. Eventually settling on Wolvhammer singer Adam Clemans, cutting the band’s teeth instead of going the whole hog with an album the band settled on releasing a four track EP, The Apothic Gloom.
