This is a site where I post reviews of CDs, DVDs, LPs, and concerts. I have been writing music reviews on and off since 1984. 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. I recently moved to Portugal so please request the new address and do not send any music to Denmark anymore. Tak..

Might- Might (Exile on Mainstream)
are a new duo (Ana Muhi and Sven Missulis) from Hannover, Germany.The CD features 9 tracks. The bands tracks
are quite diverse. Introduce Yourself starts things off with just a guitar and
vocal (male and female). Pollution of Mind features some rapid fire drumming
and super intense guitar to start things off and then heads off into a dirty
fuzzed out groove and then a more doomy vibe develops after a sharp edit. Ana
sings this one. Nasty sound. Vampire continues with a heavy riff also with a
lot of distortion on the guitar riff. Sven sings the lead with Ana on backing
vocals. The drums join on this much slower track, which has many different
vibes. Possession starts with a bassand
then a typical doom riff kicks in with the drums. At just about a minute the
drums and riff speed up and the riff switches back and forth from a nasty to a
melodic line.Ana kicks in with the
vocal at 2.5 minutes on this pretty typical doom rock track with slow and fast
parts. Warlight changes the vibe totally with an acoustic guitar. Drums and
bass join after a minute.Vocals are
gentle on this track. The track changes intensity towards the end when the
electric guitar kicks in with a lot of distortion.I guess this is where the Neurosis influence
is shows the most.
Weirdo Waltz has a distorted sound and is super intense like
black death metal music to start.It
comes to a stop and is only two guitars before the Ana’s vocals kick in and it
becomes distorted doom music.Later the
distorted sound becomes more intense like the beginning. Flight of Fancy bursts
out of the ass of the previous song and starts heavy but strips itself down to
just a single guitar and Ana’s voice sung in a different style. Mrs Poise was a
strange track with some keyboards. Zero is the last track and brings back the
intensity of the album with that distorted metal-doom rock.
When the band can get back to tour they
promise a highly visual show including Sven duplicating himself on drums and
playing guitar live.
The bio says for fans of Emma Ruth Rundle,
Chelsea Wolfe, Neurosis, Jarboe, Dolch and others… I am not really familiar
with these act except Neurosis.
