Marilyn Manson – The Pale Emperor

5/5

“The Pale Emperor is exactly what Marilyn Manson should be writing at this point in his career, and life. It’s mellowed out but still sharp as a knife. It’s a departure but it’s still hanging out in the right neighbourhoods. It’s Marilyn Manson’s year – MMXV.”

Toundra – IV

4.5/5

“It’s always great to see band pushing the boundaries of music and attempting something different, and attempting to drive different emotions from people. Toundra have the ability to create such intricate and beautiful post-rock music, that it really does need time spending on it, in order to either full understand the story the band are trying to tell, or to fully form your own interpretations on the album as a whole.”

Periphery – Juggernaut: Alpha and Omega

4.5/5

“Unless you instantly come across an incredibly popular formula, bands need to alter their sound, it’s the nature of the beast sadly, but change isn’t always a bad thing, and certainly not for Periphery with their new release. Juggernaut is both a fantastic mix of a more melodic sounding Periphery and also the crushing djent sounds we are very much used to when we think of their past albums.”
