Description/Reviews
'The Future Past' threw me at first for the very reason I mentioned in the intro...I was expecting something along the lines of Kungens Män but, to reiterate, this is an album all of its own and a damn good one at that. The variety contained within makes it a real smorgasbord of delights...the way it trips from motorik based krautrock to more pastoral psych and finishing with some retro synth sounds is truly wonderful and goes to make this an album of many dimensions... a trait that is sadly missing in so much music these days. To use a well-worn cliche...it is an album that keeps on giving; after many run-throughs I am still discovering little facets and nuances to the music...a sign of an accomplished album made by accomplished musicians.

Format: CD, digital, vinyl

2. Fear Of The Unknown

Michael Romeo (Symphony X) - guitars
Rick Castellano - vocals
John “JD” DeServio - bass

Description/Reviews
Recalling the forbidding tone of the notorious H.G. Wells novel that inspired its name, Romeo casts the lead track, "Introduction", as a precursor for what is to follow. The dark, symphonic instrumental (equal parts Bernard Herman and Gustav Holst) gives way to the pummeling metal double-header of "Fear The Unknown" and "Black", on which Romeo's rifftastic twists and turns are ably assisted by Rick Castellano's soaring vocals.

Description/Reviews
We All Know straddles the post-rock/post-metal divide as it weaves between siren-like leads and sludgy riffing, finding its own form unlike any other. Rather than any typical post-what have you album, We All Know bears closest resemblance to a mix of the apocalyptic dance-drone of 65daysofstatic‘s Wild Light and Clint Mansell‘s moody and menacing score for The Fountain.

Description/Reviews
With it, the Algeciras, Spain, outfit present six tracks — well, four with an intro and outro — that to each very one, explore new territory of range and scope. From the flowing Iberian folk in “La Palmosa” to the shuffling tension of “Quejigo” to drifting into Afrobeat-inspired rhythms of the title-track to the Mellotron-inclusive fuzz-prog of “Sapo Sagapo,” Atavismo venture into deeply varied ground and feel their way through ideas both rich in tone, all over place and still somehow able to flow together as an execution of a single idea and spirit.

Description /Review
After waiting several years to put out a recording, ModernMyth wastes no time with an intro. Instead, they turn it up to 11 right from the beginning with their first song “Colors”, featuring punchy down-tuned guitars and memorable vocals by singer Aaron Harris. There are no harsh vocals on the record, but it never takes away from the heaviness, much like Caligula’s Horse or some TesseracT.

Akaba - Backing vocals

Description/Reviews
Formed in 2018, and with a lineup whose pedigree includes bands such as as WHITE WILLOW, HENRY FOOL, ÄNGLAGÅRD, THE TIM BOWNESS BAND, WESERBANDLAND and NECROMONKEY, GALASPHERE 347 creates music on an epic, widescreen, scale, replete with a powerful and dynamic drum sound that intertwines itself with liquid bass lines, grinding guitars, mellifluous flute and lush analogue keyboards, the whole of which is topped off by passionate vocals. As can be expected from the varied geographical locations of members, GALASPHERE 347 draws from a variety of influences.
Together, these vastly experienced musicians seamlessly incorporate the technical spectacle of progressive rock with the distorted insistence of Krautrock, via the intimacy of the singer-songwriter’s oeuvre, to produce a three-track album that spans a total of forty minutes, or, as the band says, “Just about enough time to reach Jupiter at the speed of light”.

Description/Reviews
Terminus plays a frenzied, technical and powerful style of music that blends elements of progressive rock, sludge and metal — think a combination of what Rush and Yes would sound like if they joined forces with Queens of the Stone Age, Sleep and Black Sabbath — and that translates to their studio work, as well.
