Music of the Week – Pro-Pain – Time

Thanks to a friend, I dig out after a long time some of the earlier Pro-Pain’s music…they did a very good blend of thrash and hardcore, more focused on heavy, monolithic guitars and menacing, intimidating vocals than speed or sheer aggression.

A very young Rozz Williams, barely 19 years old at the time, with a punk legend, Rikk Agnew of the Adolescents, put together a wonderful disc of rare power. They portrayed their own angst, uncertainty and paranoia […]

News + Music of the Week – Massive Ego – I Idolize You

Hello again my fellow readers! I’ve did a small site update. I’ve added UTF-8 encoded version of the wanted and found list, many people had problems with the SHIFT-JIS encoded ones. For now, I’ve not received complaints about the other stuff list so I haven’t added a UTF-8 version for them. If you have problems […]

Time to go back to the neo folk territory again, my fellow readers. :) This is one of the best songs from the last album (The lone descent, 2011) of one of the most important bands in the whole genre: Kim Larsen’s Of The Wand & The Moon. Larsen (NOT to be confused with his […]
