CD review MASTER BOOT RECORD ‘Floppy Disk Overdrive’

'Floppy Disk Overdrive' is, in a positive way, a really distracting album with music that is unique to date.

CD review MYRKUR ‘Folkesange’

Myrkur releases with 'Folkesange' an album that builds on the predecessors while taking partly another road too.

It's an impressive album that unveils a new detail every time listening to it.

Obsidian… dark, reflective and black: it’s a pretty decent description of the music that Paradise Lost have been making over the last 32 years, even though this most resilient of British metal bands have stoically refused to be pinned down to one easily defined formula.
