Newsflash: In Communion with Vvon Dogma I!

RockmusicRaider Newslfash - Vvonn Dogma I - Communion - Album CoverThe RockmusicRaider offices just love those jewels all of a sudden ejected from the nameless masses of music creations. Like some sort of magic volcano gone to the other side. And specifically tasty are those bands that consciously and purposefully defy styles and currents. By this definition they threaten to become their very own genre – a victim of their own success if you will. We had them before on RockmusicRaider with bands like Dirty Sound Magnet and their self-declared modus operandi aptly named Creative Rock. 

Into this category fall the eccentric geeks of the Canadian band Vvon Dogma I and their début EP Communion. Why would we call them that?Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Myrkur – Mareridt (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Myrkur - Mareridt - Album CoverAmalie Bruun and her alma mater Myrkur are on the loose again. I can already hear the haters’ black tongues wagging away at her metal credentials. “Pop girlie gone Black Metal has no reason to exist…” – and so on and so forth. Nonetheless she does exist and gains maturity as her endeavor soars along these icy, black and dreary landscapes. She started off with a first self-titled EP that already sent some shock waves all about the metal planet.

M – the début full length album – raised expectations for future offerings big time. And it is against this winner of the 2015 Top 10 Records that Mareridt measures against. Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Dodecahedron – Kwintessens (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Dodecahedron - Kwintessens - Album CoverSomething creates dark, foreboding atmospheres. Cold empty spaces filled with noisy dissonance to chill your soul with frozen hydrogen. And no doubt you need this type of a wall of sound if a record takes off with something called The Culling of the Unwanted of the Earth. Equally if the main actor goes by the name of ‘The Entity’. By Loki!

Dark and grey, a landscape of bleak winds howling through the low-lying mists. The mists that just about hide the sharp-toothed monsters within. Well, hells bells, quite a piece of work, now ain’t it? In truth Kwintessens of Dodecahedron got dissed swiftly and banned to a far corner of the RMR offices for a few months.Got hooked?
