Fjeld: Wave It Off Categories: Finland • Rock • Tracks Fjeld: Wave It Off Last year I featured Fjeld's debut EP, 'Apple Thief Times', then saying that the Finnish indie-post-rock quintet was definitely on to something. Recently new single 'Wave It Off' came my way and at the very least it reaffirms my previous statement - at best it should lead someone to sign ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Black Lizard: Solarize Categories: Albums • Finland • Rock Black Lizard: Solarize Two years on from their great eponymous debut album Black Lizard return with another sweet, self-produced offering of psyched out rock as it was first done some fifty years ago.

Halshug: Blodets Bånd Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Halshug: Blodets Bånd Danish trio Halshug ("decapitation") has two speeds: Fast and very fast. This means that their debut, 'Blodets Bånd', isn't the most varied album you can imagine. With eight songs clocking in at just at little more than 17 minutes in total it isn't very long either.

Then Comes Silence: Nyctophilian Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Then Comes Silence: Nyctophilian I was quite smitten by Then Comes Silence's first album, 'Then Comes Silence', and I liked their second effort, 'II', even better. After listening to 'Nyctophilian' (kudos for thinking outside the box regarding the album title) I have to say that if the Swedes don't get a major breakthrough with ... (Click To Continue Reading)
