So where exactly to start? This year marks of course ten years of Infest, a festival that has changed in subtle ways over the years. This one was my eighth, and it was fun the other week unearthing all the memories of past events before I forgot them forever. And as always, this year brought […]
We are finally in the week preceding Infest, so it is perhaps only right for an Infest-based Tuesday Ten. Not just ten artists, though – this is something of a ramble of the good and the bad from my seven Infests so far – I haven’t mentioned all of the bands over that time, but […]
So how exactly do you go about topping an album as good as Transhuman? Well, it appears Cyanotic are side-stepping that question a little for now, as we have to wait a little longer for the follow-up proper to arrive.
A year or so on from the well-received and heavily promoted release of debut Please Keep Moving Forward, we come to the latest release from Coreline.

A second August visit to SyN.
This week's TT is inspired by a number of things, but triggered mainly in the most recent-sense by Carl's question the other day, and what I have noticed as a DJ in the EBM/industrial scene. So what is the list about? Dancefloor fillers. Not just any old dancefloor fillers, but the ones that are truly […]
Going to see a band from your past, that you never got to see the first time around, is always perhaps something of a risk.
