Georgia’s been responsible for plenty of great sludge bands over the years and I think it’s definitely time to add Savagist to that list. […] Unlike most bands that simply create this heavy Earth shattering sound and stop there, Savagist proves to be much more interesting.
Bereft est un album d’exception et Hands Of Despair n’a rien à envier aux grands groupes de death/black/doom metal européens.
But as opposed to most riot grrrl and girl punk bands, in Rosy Finch there’s also much substance beyond appearances. There are some really great guitar riffs, with a direct sound, just lots of overdrive and not many effects, but also complex rhythmic patterns and a sincere will to make noise.
Rhino’s Latitude Ø is atmospheric, and entrancing, but with plenty of weight and the kind of contrast between earth-rumbling physicality and phantasmagoric spookiness that pulls you in, and drags you under. Dismal and despairing music that will get heads moving.
A few years down the line, if they stay this course, Woccon could develop into one of the strongest Death/Doom bands to come out of American soil.
Hands Of Despair nous livre là une offrande absolument magistrale de maîtrise. […] Chaque titre offre une ambiance différente, ce qui donne une seule envie à la fin de l’écoute: y retourner.
Rosy Finch is a band who you want to stay around forever. They’re the sort of band cults grow up around […]. Get this band into your life as soon as you can.
[Woccon] Formed in 2011 -yeah, amazing- and already giving Daylight Dies and Novembers Doom heavy pressure, it’s no wonder debut EP The Wither Fields landed on my digital desk. [8 out of 10]
By track three we have already involuntarily shot the horns at least once and, should [Rosy Finch] play in the UK, we fully intend turning the mosh pit into an altar of sacrifice to these two girls and a guy. It’s heavy as a bag of anvils, but more than anything else, it just rocks. Hard.
Overall, “Hereafter” is one of those releases that are very well crafted and present so many influences, taking more than a few spins to fully digest them.
Catuvolcus paint with a palette that is broad but never gaudy, and the resulting Gergovia is both exhilarating and enjoyable. [8 out of 10]
I´d recommend [Goetia] to people who appreciate extensive grand atmospheres. There´s some Agalloch in there mixed with Cult Of Luna and Isis, if you want band references. Promising debut! 7/10.
[Rosy Finch] continue to throw one catchy hook after another throughout the entire album backed by carefully thought out songwriting and a raw production.
Filled with heavy riffs from start to end, [Witchboro] is one unconventional release that you should definitely check out.
All of the songs are outstanding, and this album [Gergovia] has a great consistency that you don’t always find in modern Metal albums. [Catuvolcus : 8 out of 10]
[Hereafter] is well worth your time though, you just have to like badass Metal to get into it! 8/10.
These guys [Catuvolcus] may be the best band you have never heard of.
“In short: [By The Patient’s] Premonitions is Scandinavian death metal at its finest, and certainly one of the best and most mature death metal albums to come out of Denmark for a long time.” 8/10
