Blacklisters – Adult Review

Blacklisters – Adult Review

“Leeds-based foursome Blacklisters’ sophomore release Adult is a cynical punch in the face accompanied by a sardonic smile. An eruption of sickening bile gestated for years in pools of angst spat by generations of punk, hardcore, and noise bands.” If you’re like me and don’t like clowns, this cover creeps you out.

Vampillia – Some Nightmares Take You Aurora Rainbow Darkness Review

“”Beautiful” is a word that I don’t normally use to describe an album here at AMG, and especially in Casa de los Grymm.  “Fun” is even less of a descriptor.  What was it again that Euronymous wanted none of via his record label again?  But I took a shot at an unknown (to me, at least) group of Japanese noise brigands (with a former Boredom, Toyohito Yoshikawa, in its ever-growing ranks) known as Vampillia. With quite a few releases under their belt (seventeen, according to their website), their newest, the very wordy Some Nightmares Take You Aurora Rainbow Darkness, is their first full-length, and it’s a good snapshot into their crazy world.” All your bases are belong to us! And don’t call me Aurora Rainbow!
