RockmusicRaider Review - Antyra - Pentachronist - Album Cover

This is going to be a first: RockmusicRaider promoting a record containing a whopping five intros (fuck, yeah…), plus a master overture at the very beginning. Some of that stuff dwells outrageously far out in fairyland and is in part so bad you just want to slam the door shut in their face.

RockmusicRaider Review Tiamat Wildhoney - Album Cover Is it good or bad to be reminded right away of another band, when starting on a review of one?
