Death Grips Live Review (HMV Forum, London. 2/5/13)

If ATP couldn’t get enough of my respect already for putting on great events, they somehow squeezed some more out of me with this. Death Grips, anyone who follows this review blog should know, is a band who has done nothing wrong in my books and has been consistently blasted via my laptop, record player and iPod ever since “Exmilitary” came out. After unfortunately missing their previous shows/tours for various reasons, I made this particular gig in London a mission that could not be failed. Continue reading

Top 20 Music Videos of 2012

We all love a good music video, right? Sometimes it can make you love or understand a song a little bit more, or it can be a complete bloodfest that you just concentrate on the visuals, or it can be plain funny – either way, these are my top picks for 2012. Enjoy. Continue reading

Top 10 Disappointments of 2012

Basically, this is a personal list of disappointments, be it that an album wasn’t as good as I’d hoped or a band broke-up or whatever. A negative list, but I’m sure a few of us can agree on a few. Continue reading

An Update On General Things (17/10/12)

October has been a crazy month for releases, huh? I’m literally overwhelmed at the moment by so many releases from a lot of bands that I hold in high regard within days or weeks of each other. I just finished the Pig Destroyer “Book Burner” review (here), and at the moment, I intend to cover Trash Talk‘s “119” and Godspeed You! Black Emperor‘s “‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!”. I’m also hoping to review the Devilman (not the grime artist) debut when it gets released… really looking forward to what else those guys have done besides the tracks they’ve put up on the net, as well as Neurosis‘s “Honor Found In Decay”.

I’ve also had requests for album reviews, and hopefully a submission soon. I’m not getting enough of them (despite this timing of releases)!

Anyway, another problem on top of all the sudden releases is that I have gigs to go to in the next few weeks which means I’m taking on as many shifts as I can at work, the travelling and possible hotel costs are going to make my bank account cry. I’m going to Damnation Festival on the 3rd November, which is being held in Leeds, and the fact that I’m going to see Pig Destroyer in the flesh almost turns me into hysterics just thinking about it. Then on the 5th November, I’m hoping to see Death Grips in Bristol, depending if anyone is going and I can stay at a friend’s place. Then, I have the Neurosis and Godflesh ATP event in London on 2nd December. I will definitely be reviewing these too.

So yeah, I’m gonna be busy on working to save money for expenses. I’ll try to write as much as I can during the free time I have, but sorry in advance if posts are few over the next couple weeks.
