Here’s another one of those lists I’ve been working on. Primarily, the reoccurring genre this time ’round are in the ‘core genre. Hope you enjoy!
5. A Thousand Times Repent
Deathcore, as of late, has been extremely popular, especially with the last 4-5 years. If you want some good Christian deathcore, go listen to A Thousand Times Repent, as well as the Christian deathcore comps on Bandcamp. But back to the topic at hand. The band formed in 2006 as a sixpiece, one vocalist, one drummer, one bassist, and three guitarists. The band signed to Tribunal Records and released a single EP, Virtue Has Few Friends. Lineup changes ensued soon after and then disbanded around 2011, without any formal announcement. The band seemed to have some hype behind them back in the day, with the release of the EP. In more recent days, the band was given more press with… er… crime. Not the band members though, I assure you.

Salt Of The Sound‘s new EP centres around the theme of light, which is echoed in different ways across all of the songs, and features heavily in the Advent traditions of Nordic countries. Waiting For The Dawn combines these Scandinavian influences with an focus on natural soundscapes, as well as featuring the unique blend of electronic synths, subtle vocal harmonies, and thoughtful lyrical messages that the duo have become known for.

As I begin this review, I should probably note that I’ve been a Switchfoot fan since I first heard “Meant to Live” on the radio all the way back in 2003. I was 11 years old and just beginning to get into music at the time. Continued →
In writing reviews, occasionally you come across an artist or band you’re entirely unfamiliar with. There can be a number of reasons for that, but nevertheless, when I come across them, I look forward to writing the review. It’s often a great way to find and share new artists/bands to listen to and you know you’re sure to present a fresh take on the album you’re reviewing. Continued →
Slechtvalk, the black metal band from the Netherlands, has some new music to offer. After two years of work, (yes it was two years), the band has finally released a lyric video for their song “We Are”. It’s fast, brutal and has some of the best quality for black metal I’ve heard yet! The album, titled Where Wandering Shadows and Mists Collide, will be released in December 2016. Enjoy!

I’ll admit I’m far from a fan of Christmas. Radios begin playing these tunes right after Halloween, depicting a winter so far from the reality of the slushy midwest Decembers and the hysteria of holiday shoppers.
Thankfully, Vocal Few’s Snowdrift EP is a refreshingly honest take on the season. Continued →
