Triptykon, ‘Melana Chasmata’ – Album Review

The term ‘genius’ is thrown around pretty loosely in music, but in the case of Tom G. Warrior (Thomas Gabriel Fischer), the description is an apt one. From Hellhammer to Celtic Frost and now Triptykon, he has broken new musical ground again and again, and although all his forays haven’t been home runs (‘Cold Lake’ being the most obvious example), Warrior isn’t afraid to take risks.

Cynic, ‘Kindly Bent To Free Us’ – Album Review

Since the release of 'Focus' in 1993, Floridian technical death metal innovators Cynic have held onto the status of being an "elite" band. Few underground acts have been bestowed with such critical praise, but Cynic have always been ahead of their time.
