This is a site where I will post reviews of CDs, DVDs, LPs, and concerts. I have been writing music reviews on and off for the last 27 years. I ran a heavy metal fanzine from 1984-1988 called Metal Madness and have been a staff writer for Aural Innovations for many years. I have also contributed to Chrohinga Well (RIP), Bad Acid (RIP), Lowcut (RIP), Roadburn and a number of other zines as well.

Circle- Manner (Hydra Head Records HH666-240)
This is a fucking weird record. I guess one might say that about all Circle records. 6 songs which are a strange mix of the usual circle, intense vocals, strange keyboard parts, sometimes pretty psychedelic, fast pace, some heavy metal riffs, and a bit of madness. Check it out if you dare……. It also has a rare cover song on side A, Here come the Warm Jets by Brian eno! IT has really cool artwork with a whole in the middle of the sleeve where an eye fits. Inside it comes with a simple A4 sheet of paper with some chords and musical notation for what I assume is one of the songs. Far out as usual.
