RockmusicRaider Review - Et Moriemur - Tamashii No Yama - Album Review

Some bands the RMR horde covers are way out there in the left field. And it’s not because they’re bad, it’s because they don’t give a damn about styles, conventions, and – seemingly – profits. They might lean a bit more this way or that, but by and large, they just do their thing.

The Czechs from Et Moriemur are one of those bands. They first appeared on our ‘zine with their 2014 piece Ex Nihilo in Nihilum to benevolent but still pretty limited applause. The RMR crew somewhat shamelessly ignored their pretty neat album Epigrammata from 2018. But their … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Tranzat - Ouh La La - Album Cover

At RMR we believe in the trve power of cover art. It can generate bouts of clairvoyance or feisty comments, whichever comes first.

Such a thing quite often is the reviewer’s fate. Relatively little time is attributed to scouting, there is so much material. And whilst first impressions are often uncannily correct, there are cases where a record reveals its true face later. Sometimes to the point that a promo will finally not get a review.

Eldritch‘s 12th full-length album EOS is one of these special cases. It … [...] Click to raid more!

2021 – Out of the Box: Prog, Alt, and Psy at RMR!

RockmusicRaider - Out of the Box: Prog, Alt, and Psy 2021 - Boy singing progressive music

The RMR crew loves a good progressive, alternative, psychedelic, or even experimental rock or metal piece. Because it is there that the out-of-the-box folks dwell. Those bands that won’t be bothered by the strict confines of some genres but dearly like their artistic freedom of creativity without constraints. Yet, some of these bands tend to go a bit or way too much overboard with their liberties. A fact that may or may not play in their favor.
