Dis Pater of Midnight Odyssey, an Australian one-man band, can do it all. His atmospheric black metal music, and especially this album, can make for some spacey adventures. “Funerals from the Astral Sphere” was released by I,... (more »)

The year is 2015 and country music has lost its way, stranded on a one-way, one-lane road in uncharted territory like it’s never been before.  Stuck somewhere between pop and a hard place, the genre that I grew up with is experiencing an... (more »)

You probably should've seen this coming. For those of you who know, I will be doing almost nothing but progressive rock and metal. You really can't have a proper series of these album reviews without doing at least one review of the Prog... (more »)

In The Court of the Crimson King by King Crimson
Custom User Avatar
King Crimson is a band that loves to be funny as evidence from songs like Elephant Talk for example. Still, it's hard not to like this band in the slightest. While, much like Yes and Genesis, they did have a couple line up changes here and there,... (more »)
Chaosphere(1998) by Meshuggah

Back to Meshuggah which I haven't done in a long time. A progressive death metal/djent metal band from Sweden has released what could arguably be their Magnum Opus in this case. With that aside, I feel as if this album has alot of potential and... (more »)

Rubber Soul:Classic Reviews by The Beatles
Custom User Avatar
I see we're back here with The Beatles. Well, let's get right to it, shall we? Rubber Soul was released in 1965 much like Help! but doesn't have a movie or any covers at all unlike the other five prior to this one. Including some new elements to... (more »)
