    I’m sorry, that record label is too much to get over.

    • Carlos Marrickvillian

      Legendary Australian spiky pub punk metal band Front End Loader (FEL) after 20 years now release music on their own label ‘Weeping Anus Records’ A couple of years ago one of their infrequent records won the local equivalent to a grammy,,,. but got cut from the show because they sent a humourus letter instead of themselves and their record was released by….

    • Both label names… such a win!

  • Temporary Antenna is one of my favorite album titles ever.

    • Monsterth Goatom

      I’m partial to “Ultra Beatdown”.

    • Our Fortress Is Burning

      It’s a good fucking album.

  • Dr. A.N. Grier

    I like this album a lot. “Orphan” is quite the track.

    • Monsterth Goatom

      “Orphan” is definitely the high point imo. The rest was rather “meh”, and I found the vocals a bit monotonous. As a concept album, it didn’t really involve me like, say, Voices’ London does.

      • Dr. A.N. Grier

        Yeah, “Orphans” was the song that hit me on this album. Very cool track. But Voices is better.

      • I’ll be checking out Voices asap.

    Well, your review interested me enough to find them on Bandcamp. I like the sound a lot; while while the production is not what I would call “good” it seems to suit the mood of the music.

    • It definitely adds to the mood.

    • I’m curious, what would you say about the production that is bad?

      • Excentric_1307

        Really, I suppose it boils down to the drums, which sound fairly dull and lack impact. The guitars sound pretty good, and the bass surfaces on occasion. A DR7 isn’t horrible, but I think this production could stand to have a bit more space between the instruments, as it would aid the sound I think they’re going for; they’ve got a really wide soundstage for the guitars, but the drums and bass are both really centered and flat.

        • Yeah the mix job is a bit weird, vocals are also a bit too high by comparison but as you mentioned it is probably intentional to suit their style, as it is quite different from the usually cleaner production jobs from other modern BM bands.

  • Alexandre Barata

    Since “Mourner” I’ve been pretty much in love with Caina, so for me this is one album that could very well reach my top 10 of 2015. Andrew makes some genial songs, and this album, as far as I’m concerned, is just pretty amazing,

    • In as far as ending up on my year end list, I’ll keep spinning it… time will tell :)

  • Samuel Honywill

    Orphan would be worth it even if the rest of the record was bad (which it isn’t – it’s all amounts of awesome). What a song.

  • Ah, this is one of the january releases that I was interested in. The couple tracks that are available online sound great.

  • Doomdeathrosh

    Good review Madam! Although it isn’t as “black” as I expected, it certainly is varied well enough to catch my attention! Will hear more of this.

  • André Snyde Lopes

    Wow, what an album. At less than 35 minutes (which is a definite plus) it goes by in a flash. Also, Orphan caught me completely off-guard. This is excellent and my favorite record from January so far.

    Dammit Dammit Dammit. You damn Angry Metal Dudes have just caused me to further drain my finances. I am the ashamed owner of much of his discography now. !!!!
