Album title: The Curse That Is
Release date: 1 April 2016
Label: Relapse Records

01. The Curse That Is

The re-emerged Portland (USA) based quartet Graves At Sea is back with a new full-lenght, after issuing a series of highly regarded demos and splits, plus going through some line-up changes. Well, Graves At Sea scored some beautiful tunes on this album, a long awaited one, in the making for almost 15 years, but still full of hype. The Curse That Is is without any doubt a well put together album, it's full of groove and special attitude, it's a well sorted mix od doom, drone and sludge, with a Down's Nola vibe which is nothing but a plus for me, I spot a very strong personality, but with some references to Kylesa, Eyehategod and Electric Wizard that doesn't hurt either. The songwriting is very well shaped, songs are very solid and well played, the production is a little bit too polished for the genre, but fits very well with the melodic content. I really enjoyed the atmosferic addition to the granitic riffs, such is violin, cello and female voices. For me the climax on this album comes with the main riff on "Dead Eyes". If you are a fan of High On Fire, Kylesa, Electric Wizard and YOB to name a few, then this is a must have album for you. I really hope to see them live very soon, because those songs must be a blast when played on stage.

Band: Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Album title: Bohren For Beginners
Release date: 21 October 2016
Label: PIAS Recordings

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore are a uniquely talented band. Bohren take their sounds from some very different musical styles and bring them together into one cohesive whole. Starting out over 20 years ago, Bohren has built up an average sized yet magnificent discography over the years. For fans, looking to find out what Bohren & Der Club Of Gore is all about can be a very daunting task. Bohren & Der Club Of Gore have released a brilliant collection in Bohren For Beginners. This is absolutely the perfect starting point for new initiates. The two discs worth of music provide a ton of aural bliss. For many, Bohren is the one and only jazz band they will ever need. Obviously fans of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble will love Bohren, a band which likely set the stage for later bands like TKDE. The best part about this album is that Bohren For Beginners alludes to the idea that there will still be plenty more music from them in the future, which should be enough to make any Bohren fan smile.
