Aphyxion: Earth Entangled Categories: Albums • Denmark • Metal Aphyxion: Earth Entangled Aphyxion are one of the worst kept secrets in the Danish metal underground. The five guys from Ribe, Jutland, managed to play nearly 100 shows before anyone of them turned 20 – including prestigious gigs like Copenhell and Wacken Open Air – and built a reputation for ass-kicking live shows. ...

Firewoodisland: ILD Categories: Albums • Alternative • Norway Firewoodisland: ILD Back in 2010 Norway native Stian Vedøy relocated to Cardiff in Wales and in 2013 Firewoodisland came to life as he joined forces with Abi Newbould, Stephen Allen and Rowan Blake. Five months ago the debut EP, ‘ILD’, followed, sporting five quite amazing indiefolk songs most likely able to please ... (Click To Continue Reading)
A Road To Damascus: In Retrospect Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock A Road To Damascus: In Retrospect This Danish quartet first caught our attention with their quirky, yet oddly infectious cover of ‘Airplanes’, originally by B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams, back in 2012. Now A Road To Damascus have released their sophomore effort, ‘In Retrospect’, and like on their eponymous debut they are not afraid to be shamelessly ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Sin Cos Tan: Blown Away Categories: Albums • Electronica • Finland Sin Cos Tan: Blown Away Third time’s a charm, it’s said, and it’s definitely the case with this blog and mentions of Sin Cos Tan albums: ‘Blown Away’ is their third and it’s the first time we do an album recommendation (we have featured the Finnish duo a few times, though - here, here and ...

Hjortene: Hjortene Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Hjortene: Hjortene If you like stoner rock you will most likely love Hjortene (“The Deer”). There really is little need to say much more about the Danish trio’s eponymous debut album, sporting guest appearances by Valient Himself, Lorenzo Woodrose and President Fetch, and 60s psych and 70s punk lyrical throwbacks in the ...

ORKA: Leipzig Categories: Albums • Alternative • Faroe Islands ORKA: Leipzig That Faroese collective ORKA fronted by Jens L. Thomsen is something entirely unique is no secret. They have proven it with homemade instruments, excellent live shows and now four albums of equal parts alternative rock and industrial electronica. The latest, ‘Leipzig’, is both their most accessible (’Leipzig VII - Sing’ ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Metal Sólstafir: Ótta It has always been a bit of a stretch to call Sólstafir metal. On ‘Ótta’ the term really doesn’t make sense anymore, but I got no better genre that really covers it. The Icelandic four-piece just makes music. Haunting, beautiful, rich, atmospheric music that sounds like nothing else. ‘Ótta’ may ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Brother North: Brother North Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Sweden Brother North: Brother North At just 22 Swedish/Icelandic duo Brother North - Freyr Flodgren and Lucas Enquist - have already been making music together for a decade, the culmination so far being the release of their debut album this year. Inhabiting the same sphere as fellow Scandinavian Klak Tik, although less eccentric, the duo ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Nancy: Seas Surrounding Categories: Albums • Alternative • Finland Nancy: Seas Surrounding Pretty much exactly a year on from their debut, ‘IDDQD’, Finnish quartet Nancy return with a full length album departing a bit from their first in style. The core is still grandiose rock, but this time around they’ve intensified the use of electronics and more than once tweaked the knobs ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Musique Le Pop: l’été EP Categories: Albums • Electronica • Norway Musique Le Pop: l’été EP Last year Musique Le Pop had a bit of a blogosphere hit with their great single ’Turn To Sand’, and a couple of months ago the Norwegian electropop trio followed up with their debut EP, ‘l’été EP’ (“summer” in French). It’s a perfectly titled release and will extend the feeling ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Tomas Barfod: Love Me Categories: Albums • Denmark • Electronica Tomas Barfod: Love Me Twenty-some years ago I went to boarding school with Tomas Barfod. Then a very accomplished (jazz) drummer he surprised most - at least most of us, his fellow students - when suddenly charting as half of electropop duo Filur (his later work with WhoMadeWho making a bit more immediate sense), ...

Eline Thorp: Mirror’s Edge Categories: Albums • Norway • Pop Eline Thorp: Mirror's Edge It's been a long time coming, the debut album from Norwegian songstress Eline Thorp, but 'Mirror's Edge' can only be said to have been worth the wait. The 20 year-old preacher's daughter began making waves some three years ago when she inked a deal with Beyond Records, not least thanks ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Meadows End: The Sufferwell Categories: Albums • Metal • Sweden Meadows End: The Sufferwell You can’t accuse Meadows End for rushing things through. They played together for almost a decade before releasing their debut album and now we have had to wait for four years for them to make the followup, 'The Sufferwell'. Luckily it's been worth the wait. While the Swedes debut 'Ode ... (Click To Continue Reading)
