Affliction Gate - Dying Alone (album review)

Image
Affliction Gate
Dying Alone
Transcending Obscurity
Release: 5 January 2016

Want to turn on, tune in, and drop out? This is the perfect album. The first strains of music was a sonic shower! All the stress and angst I had from the day melted away. 90 seconds later and I felt good. Relaxed. Thank you Affliction Gate! "Negative Lucidity" is a wonderfully constructed tune that is pleasing to the ear and good for the soul. Yes, the vocals are the cookie monster growl. Yes, the guitars are a wall of sound. Yes, the drumming is bombastic. But some days it's just what you need. The album only has four tracks, but you can listen to those four tracks over and over again and not get tired. I'd like to thank Affliction Gate for making Dying Alone. It's an album you didn't know you needed until you get it!

The Glorious Rebellion - Euphoric (album review)

Image
The Glorious Rebellion Euphoric Magnetic Eye RecordsRelease: 8 April 2016








Well this starts out fucking heavy and brutal. The production is quite raw and it brings an instant smile to my face. The lyrics start to the first track "It's a Suckers Game, Kid" and I'm instantly hooked. This is an uber bitchen track! The only thing that sucks is that the world at large has to wait until April 2016 to hear this album! HOLY and FUCK are words that I describe the second track "Emmet Brown Has Never Met a Scot That Wasn't Great". Jaysus, Merry, and Josef! This is a bitchen track! The guitars are schmarmy. The vocals are visceral. I frakkin' love this so far. Pretty much every track is epic in its simplicity. Nothing frivolous or superfluous. This is heavy rock in its purist, stripped down form and it's head banging worthy!

So who the fuck are Glorious Rebellion? They are from Orlando, FL and rumour has it they were offered multiple deals within hours of rele…
