Apple Music Badge – Buy with Amazon!

RockmusicRaider Review - End of Green - Void Estate - Album CoverA Doom Rock and Metal avalanche currently thunders into this valley of woe where the fans dwell. It is big, scary and heavy on tears and sorrow. RockmusicRaider covered a score of them bands over time: Traditional outfits like My Dying Bride or again Vanha kind of hold the fort. Then you have the youngsters like Khemmis traipsing all over the hallowed established grounds of Doom Metal.

Then again you will find these sort of crossover bands that have enough doom in them to be called that, yet sit astride a score of other styles. The German band End of Green is one of those.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Dirty Sound Magnet – Western Lies (2017) – Review

Buy with Amazon!

RockmusicRaider Review - Dirty Sound Magnet - Western Lies - Album CoverYou’ve got bands that stick to their guns like there is no tomorrow. And they will always rehash what was before until their days run out. Comfort in sounds and numbers, right? And truly, for some it pays off. They fill stadiums with fans wanting nothing more than to listen to the same shit all over again. Mind you, these bands are good at what they do and a lot of fans like precisely that level of comfort.

Then you have others with a distinct taste for risk and change, the ones opening doors that were closed before. Darting off to take yonder foggy pathways that nobody knows where they will lead.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Death is Liberty - A Statement Darkness - Album ArtAh, a funky, punky, rocky sound pouring out of my loudspeakers, annoying my neighbours. And I am confused. On the one hand this is almost – like – dizzyingly gruesome to listen to, it is such a wild jumble of elements. On the other hand the latest record of the Finnish band Death is Liberty exerts an almost magic pull on the hapless listener that is difficult to ignore.

Their début album A Statement Darkness, signed to Concorde Music Company, serves you with a mixture of Alternative and Progressive Rock that is just amazing and amazingly well done. As always, the bands stepping out of the box often produce good to very good content.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Sevey Eyed Crow - Dark Ways to the Sun - Album Cover

France is famous for wine and food. Right? But also for some extravagant tunes. You may want to check out Seven Eyed Crow, who are just about to unlock the chains on their newest and first EP Dark Ways to the Sun, up for physical delivery this late May 2016 (digital has been out for a while already).

They serve you with a refreshing and somewhat weird mix of Alternative and Progressive Rock, descending down into Rap Metal seizures on ye in a heartbeat all of a sudden. Thrashily changing between a fair amount of styles in rapid progression, their tune nevertheless displays a refreshing groove that will make you go for seconds.Got hooked?

Newsflash: Hard Reset – Machinery & Humanity – Born in 2015!

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Hard Reset - Machinery and Humanity - Cover ArtHard Reset‘s 2015 and first full length album Machinery & Humanity will be released on CD in Europe this February by Sliptrick Records. The band hits you with some sort of a subdued, but very refined style of their own brand of rock of the Progressive and Alternative kind. And some of that with a distinctly grungy flavor. The inclusion of Prog elements is sometimes surprising, but at a much less flashy level than their partners in crime of this very particular universe. Their music has got soul however, well thought through and refined, whereas the lyrics for sure would need some quality overhaul sometimes.Got hooked?
