Fluxious - Nucleus Accumbens Diseases

Fluxious's début album Why So Serious? was a bit of an acquired taste and, with all its flaws and virtues, it turned out to be an either love or hate affair for some. Mixing jazz and metal, it was not a seamless blend of the two genres but had a sort of dichotomy going. Its appeal lied in contrasting patterns of both worlds that manifested itself in song structures, vocal lines as well as the overall feeling. The follow-up to this début is something I've been eagerly expecting for a while now.

Kong - Stern

Kong are extremely good at delivering music that is restless and unsettling. If you're an impressionable sort, a driver that gets nervous and twitchy at the wheel of a car in a rush hour, Kong is not a good choice of background music. It will surely make you even more anxious and jumpy. It's the sort of music that just doesn't let itself be enjoyed sitting tight.

Rigor Mortis - Slaves To The Grave

Reviewing the posthumous opus ultimus of a recently-deceased artist imposes the unique burden of simultaneously preventing the unfortunate circumstances from coloring any objective sentiments about the work itself and remaining sensitive to the situation. While of course we believe in subjective reviews here, and some albums are best understood in the context of their creator's demise (Woods Of Ypres's Woods V), more often than not death intensifies hero worship. Rigor Mortis require no special treatment; not only does Slaves To The Grave deliver well enough on its own, it is a fitting swan song and testament to the brilliance of both Rigor Mortis and the late Mike Scaccia.

FRA, Toulouse - Entombed A.D. & Grave: Back To The Front European Tour 2014

A pure Swedish death metal evening, with Entombed A.D. - that's the LG Petrov fronted version of Entombed - as headliner? Count me in!

First off, I have to warn you. It's been a while since I last shoot concert pics in a venue with my old compact camera, and the resulting pics show I'm rusty, with my outdated material. So, don't expect anything great, the photos are just here for a basic illustrative purpose.
Anyway, off with the ramblings. The Dynamo venue (a great little concert bar in the center of Toulouse) was almost packed (that's 300 odd people), even with a heavy metal show the same evening in Toulouse too (featuring Heavenly and Manigance, who drew about 150 persons)... Rumor has it we had more attending people than the Paris show
