Young Valentine și debutul său în muzică

Poate că cel mai mult, ne regăsim de fapt, în felul în care reușim să gestionăm cursul propriei vieți. Curs pe care nu-l putem controla. Vorbim despre realizări, le scoatem în față ca să ajungem cât mai sus și doar în colțuri întunecate, între câțiva ochi și voci restrânse, spunem ce a presupus succesul atins, […]

launmomentdat Arta, Tehnologia și Muzica se Vor Întâlni în Parc

launmomentdat este un soi de mișcare ce încearcă să îmbine, cât mai armonios cu putință, elemente artistice cât mai variate în ideea de a plasa publicul în cadrul unei experiențe mai puțin întâlnite. Plecată de la niște simple petreceri în apartament, ideea încearcă să prindă un contur ceva mai universal, acum. Ca să înțelegem mai […]

The Film That Precedes Music. “Prédateurs” by Les Discrets

Les Discrets used us with that dreamy post-rock and melancholic perfumes. In essence, “Prédateurs” preserves their specific theme, but instead it changes their shades. They somehow give up to the all metal implications and we are introduced to a kind of dark indie rock with many influences from where you can detach a shred of […]

Chillin’ Down With the Light of Melancholy. “The Circle” by Heretoir

Should I have an opinion on this?! There is some responsibility behind every review. It’s not a complicated job, the one you’re trying to write some stuff about did all the hard work. I never flirted with the idea of myself being a music connoisseur; I enjoy music, it’s true, but it’s quite difficult to […]

Chris Mars – the musician and visual artist of outcasts

Chris Mars’s paintings had already been bugging my mind for a while, before I actually went one step further – into searching more about him, finding out who was behind those beautifully grotesque images. His work has been exhibited in USA and Canada (please, come to Romania 🙂 ). Some of his solo exhibitions were […]

Let Yourself Be Absorbed in Meditation With “Waiting for You” Video by Fine, It’s Pink

Can you hear me? Don’t want to hide anymore I was so reckless to think that I had it all “Waiting for you” is a new, dreamy vision which defines us all. After a good deal of research I have to reckon, I still know little about Fine, It’s Pink, but I guess that’s OK […]

Imaginile Din Mintea Unui Metalhead. Cu Eva

Eva Precub este autoarea unor lumi poetice care se ascund cumva în spatele unor cortine cuprinse de un intuneric aparte. Sensibila si cu un tact aparte pentru frumos, Eva devine un personaj pe care ti-ai dori sa-l intalnesti la orice fel de festival/concert/activitate metalistica. De ce? Fiindca asa zic eu, si fiindca scrie poezie, si […]

Organic Disharmonia Kollective Is The New Order To Follow. Interview

It’s really difficult and unlikely to look for people with unconventional hobbies, because we don’t know from where to start looking; yet accidents can happen and we run into these guys.

The Post-Rock Is Doom(ed). Ordeal & Plight (Review)

Ordeal & Plight has first appeared in 2012 but seemed to failed in presenting their musical intentions in a very visible way. Specifically, it all begun from K desire to start a band and there joined another guitarist, H from Black Horizons; this project sounds like post-rock with black metal influences. Once R (the bassist) […]

Drab Majesty’s “The Demonstration” (Review)

In the info section on the Drab Majesty Facebook page, the description reads: “Drab Majesty is an inter-dimensional platform aimed at channeling aural and visual messages founded by a human being from Los Angeles in 2013. “ That’s a mouthful, isn’t it?

“It’s a Good Mental Exercise to Try to Experience Art.” Interview with Ashenspire

“Speak Not of the Laudanum Quandary” is a harrowing, yet distinctly human odyssey through the absurdities and tragedies of British imperialism, voiced in an appropriately deranged sprechgesang by the band’s creative director, Alasdair Dunn. The band takes influence from the original approach to black metal found in bands such as A Forest of Stars, Dødheimsgard, […]

The duo from Västra Götaland, Sweden are musically described as black ambient, the band’s multi instrumentalists Êlea and Ândris aim to create music as an accompaniment to introspection.

“Labyrinth” by White Cube Has the Right Amount of Ambience and Post-Rock

White Cube is a so-called secret side project from the creators of musicformessier and Eensdenkend. I’m here writing this because of a recommendation and I must confess White Cube music fits perfectly my mood. Released on January 16, this psychedelic ambient/post-rock makes me escape from this ordinary, misplaced galaxy. Irony or not, these seven songs […]

Music 4 X-Mas; The Unconventional Mode Activated

I don’t know what’s the trick about this but many musical artists, at least the ones I know, consider to release their albums on Christmas Eve or even on Christmas Day. Is it weird or what? Well, I thought to throw on the tray some of this cool steaming materials. Be careful, not to be consider […]

Vohn Toe: “Music Is Made to Live Outside Its Composers”

Vohn Toe, the new musical project of Alex Turcu and Vlad Constantin, is the proof that no one, absolutely no one doesn’t know how to let things go. And sometimes, like in this case for example, not letting things go is the right choice. They founded their first band (Running Clouds) six years ago, which […]

Hip Hop Is Still Dead!

Cultures have always grown organically. The result of personal urges, yearnings, and youthful ingenuity writ large is what give the world its movements. Movements are never planned, contrived, masterminded by capitalist overlords; they are organic and they GROW. What we’ve seen many a times in America, and ‘the West’ in general is seeds in the […]

Let Faunlet’s New “Grey Magic” Video Grow in Your Head

Faunlet is a young Romanian post/alternative/darkgaze band formed in Bucharest. It’s actually a new and pretty interesting concept to me.

Grief In One Whistle: “Endeavor” (Review)

Grief is a one-man project released in 2014, but with other musical inclinations back then; for the moment Grief goes on classic recipe, from the short title, a catchy one yet with a deep significance, to blackgaze. We know many examples fulfilling this description, but I won’t enumerate them here. The interesting part is that […]
