We entered a rabbit hole called The Gerogerigegege and it lead directly to the Japan’s noise punk music scene, one which shared (and continues to share) space with the gay and BDSM scenes simultaneously. There we began to understand a mysterious band surrounded by bondage, masturbation, secrecy and noise.

Out March 15th via Prosthetic Records, Vile Creature’s music and Preservation Rituals (2015-2018) is not for everyone. But, if you believe in the power of art to unite, to provide catharsis and understanding, in the power of metaphor and bold statement; and are willing to give these songs the time and patience they require, then this might be right for you.

Waldgeflüster’s latest offering, Mondscheinsonaten (Nordvis Produktion), is a gentle lullaby delivered via the near-perfect meshing of gentle folk-like acoustic melodies with blastbeat-ridden waves of black metal hellfire.

A full quarter century after its original release via A&M, Soundgarden’s Superunknown remains a blistering, cohesive, radio-ready offering — one brimming with Stonehenge-size riffs and often disturbing, dark messages.

According to the noise he creates, Masami Akita - the artist behind Merzbow - should be a certified maniac, but if the remastered release of 1994’s Venereology, out now on Relapse Records, is the result, then who are we to judge?

Inspired by the likes of At The Gates and Lamb of God, The Onset of Eternal Darkness doesn't so much follow the metal blueprint but beat it to within an inch of its life. Read our review here.
