Here is a band that sound as if they come from about as far away from their base as is humanly possible. Rather than the clanking industrial history, the grey […]
My predilection for music lists at the moment may be coming across all a bit High Fidelity, but it is in the main me rummaging through the boxes of musical […]
A big hit for a previously less well-known band can sometimes be a blessing, or a curse. Grendel are one of those bands that have had this happen, with the […]
It is now 13 months since I last touched upon recorded output from this band – the demo CD I reviewed then did get a release of sorts a little […]

Another new month, so time for a rundown of my favourite tracks of the past month. I’m on the lookout for new things right now, stuff I may not have […]
