RockmusicRaider - Stortregn - Impermanence - Album Cover

Stortregn have that knack to usurp your attention right from the beginning of a record. There’s no dicking around for these guys. And they prop all of their wares up against some ominous theory or other corny philosophies. And this time its Impermanence in all its cosmic splendor.

The band may start with a wee bit of acoustics at first. Might. But then they just stomp their tariff right into your earphones and grab whatever energy you possess. Then they pummel you with their limitless riffing prowess, growl at you relentlessly, and spit you out undigested once the record … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Under Siege - Self-Titled - Album Cover

Damn. The Italian band Under Siege somehow got under the wheels of the mighty RMR review queue for their self-titled album released at the beginning of 2018. Not for any explicable reason, though.

But the good news is, the album finally resurfaced again. Management will however have to have a word with the deck crew for such insubordination. But I will spare you the details of that particular pep talk.

I admit, first I thought we were joining a friggin’ tattoo. You know, one of these events, where marching bands and others … [...] Click to raid more!
