Watain have finally released some new material, much to the delight of their fans after five years of waiting.
The artwork on this record is very telling.
Once upon a time, 1996 specifically, my favourite band in the whole world broke up and I was devastated. The Cavalera brothers had gone their separate ways and Sepultura was no more. Yes, yes, I know they continued with Derrick Green as lead singer but as far as I was concerned, the band was dead.
Electric Wizard was known as a doom metal band in times past, but the latest album has them going on more of a hard rock-cum-doom-cum-stoner adventure.
First of all, I need to talk about the album artwork. Cannibal Corpse is notorious for their early album artwork, particularly their first three records which the artwork was banned in many countries. Even now they’re still prohibited from playing some of their early songs in certain places.
Following up their debut My Love Is Cool, late last month Wolf Alice released their second album, Visions of a Life.
Superfood have well and truly defeated all odds.
With how successful their debut album WhiteNoise was, the stakes were high for PVRIS when it came to writing and recording the follow-up. No band wants to fall into the so-called “sophomore slump” so PVRIS have been hard at work, resulting in the highly-anticipated All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell.
As Kesha releases her long-anticipated fourth album Rainbow, onlookers are reminded of a phoenix rising from the ashes. The awful things she has faced have been no secret, and yet she remains as determined as ever to show the world who she really is— not who she was forced to be before, but instead her true, unapologetic self.
