Musing on Music - Centerlink
Centerlink grabbed me with the opening riffs of "Distant Voices". It has that schmarmy groove of early Hollywood hair metal. But the good hair metal. The guitars are steady and the bass is heavy. Parky, lead singer, has shades of James Hetfield but with a Vince Neil sneer. It's a deeper heavier vocal than Neil, but definitely channels the wickedness. "Distant Voices" reminds me of Motley Crue when Motley Crue were good and heavy. This three piece hails from Boston and have been together since 2006. Rounding out Centerlink are Jon Carota on bass Billy K. I predict more damn groovilicious music from Centerlink!
Heretique De Non Existentia Dei Via Nocturna Release: 26 March 2016
This is kinda happy to be death metal. It's, dare I say, jaunty! Listening to the tracks from Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei, make me happy. I have a loopy grin on my face and I'm banging my head along with the music. To be sure, De Non Existentia Dei is a heavy album. It's a veritable wall of sound. The vocals are Mojo Jojo worthy. But the tempo and timber fill me with glee! The songs are solid and concise. Sometimes they end before I want them to and I have to play them over again! This is the most awesome death black metal album. For those who are new to the genre or are curious, definitely start here with Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei. It's gobsmackingly done and done well. It's interesting and fun. It' oozes a delicious evil.

Turn on. Tune in. Drop out. That's how I feel listening to Klechdy by Thy Worshiper. It's ethereal and moving. The music totally draws you in. It's hard to put Klechdy into a category because so much of the compositions overlap in genre. The drumming can be tribal. The vocals can be folksy. The guitars have shades of avant garde, progressive, and Viking folk. There is no way to get bored listening to Klechdy. Thy Worshiper paints stunning visuals with music. Listening to Klechdy is a fully immersive musical experience.
