I make loud guitar noises and have unpopular opinions. If it’s underground alternative or progressive metal, I probably like it.

REVIEW: Holding Absence Learns ‘The Noble Art Of Self Destruction’

Mateo Ottie 0
Imperfections are a part of life. Despite this being an obvious observation, many people (especially perfectionists such as myself) struggle with this fact. If even the tiniest little minuscule detail doesn’t pan out as envisioned in the “perfect” plan, it will nag at me till I at least attempt to do something about it. However, […]

Nu-Grunge outfit Coma Waves have released the music video for their latest single “Numb & Ache”.

The new kings of Sacramento, Saltwound have returned with their first single in over a year, titled “The Company You Keep“.

REVIEW: Sleep Token – ‘Take Me Back To Eden’

Mateo Ottie 0
Shrouded in complete anonymity, Sleep Token’s identity often lies in their robes and distinct masks. There’s even a deep lore surrounding the band’s characters and their cult-like imagery for those who are into that, however, to me, this isn’t what defines the band. Sleep Token are rather defined by contradictions, led by heavenly R&B-esque vocals […]
