Review - 'Negura Bunget: Tau'

Negura Bunget – Tău (2015)

Lupus Lounge (Prophecy Productions) 

Review by Trevor Proctor

Negura Bunget has just released their seventh full length album, Tău as follow up to their acclaimed album, Vîrstele Pămîntului, which was released in 2010. Negura Bunget has never been a band to do things by half measures but with this release they have taken things to another ambitious level altogether, even by their high standards.

Review - 'Vassafor/Temple Nightside: Call of the Maelstrom Split LP'

Vassafor / Temple Nightside - Call of the Maelstrom (Split LP) 

Iron Bonehead Productions

Review by Trevor Proctor

Iron Bonehead has yet again united two of the undergrounds darkest, gnarliest forces to release a split LP which has just seen the light of day. This time New Zealand’s Vassafor combines with Australia’s Temple Nightside to bring us some of the ugliest and heaviest music on the planet on “Call of the Maelstrom.” VK shares duties with both bands, an individual whose extensive roster of previous bands includes Diocletian, Ulcerate and Sinistrous Diabolus. This extremely talented individual plays bass for Temple Nightside and guitar, vocals and bass for Vassafor.
