NIGHTSTALKER (Dead Rock Commandos) LP/CD

Sep/26/2012

There is no doubt about it, NIGHTSTALKER is Greece's flagship of heavy rock. This has been proven once again by their fourth album 'Dead Rock Commandos' that is chock full of melodic hooks and scorching guitar riffs which laid the basis for ten powerful tunes...

NAAM (The Ballad Of Starchild) 12"/MCD

Jul/26/2012

What a pleasant surprise! After the average but promising debut of Naam in 2009, with some nice heavy 70's/Doom songs, but also a lot of fillers and some boring parts, the guys from Brooklyn took three years to bring on the new EP and to work out their style. Where the debut was more heavy and doomy, 'The Balld of the Starchild' is much more Krautrock and Psychedelic influenced...

NORDIC NOMADIC (Worldwide Skyline) LP/CD

Mar/12/2012

Before Quest For Fire, there was NORDIC NOMADIC which is the solo project of Chad Ross, singer and guitarist for the band that I mentioned in the beginning. 'Worldwide Skyline' is his second solo album and it is an emotional song cycle that invites the listener to contemplate on the nuance and intensity of the music...

NIGHTSLUG (s/t) Tape

Feb/21/2012

When members of Union Of Sleep and Burial join forces then it should be clear to everyone that the result is very far from being family-friendly and tame. Instead, NIGHTSLUG provide the perfect soundtrack for a night of death and destruction...

NIGHTBITCH (Sex And Magic) MCD

Aug/14/2011

If I were as picky as some people in the scene whose opinion I read about this band and their singer, then I would have to state that this band sounds as expected from a group whose singer is Phil Swanson. The man is just pretty prolific and has a lot going on...

NIDINGR (Wolf Father) CD

Feb/24/2011

NIDINGR is made up of four Norwegians who are irregularly active in this band. Thus, the release of their last album is five years ago and the new one is actually an EP on the basis of the playing time of below 23 minutes...

NEKRASOV (Extinction) CD

Jan/06/2011

NEKRASOV, which has been in existence since 1997, is the solo project by Australian Bob Nekrasov who was the former guitar player in Whitehorse. As with many one-man bands, the music is mainly synthetic, but in the case of NEKRASOV there is also an electric guitar and/or vocals in half of the tracks...

NECRITE (Sic Transit Gloria Mundi) CD

Nov/13/2010

NECRITE has been around since 2004, and after a long series of demos the band now releases their debut album 'Sic Transit Gloria Mundi' via Flenser Records. Since the band was unknown to me, I was very curious to hear their music - not least because obviously they had difficulties to find a record label...

NINTH DESERT / MATERIEL BROUILLEUR (Ainos) CD-R

Sep/18/2010

'Ainos' is a dark ambient album, that also contains elements of rhythmical machine-like industrial music. It is not - as one might imagine - a split album, but a collaboration of two French musicians called Cyrill Herry (NINTH DESERT) and Jean-Francois Fanton (MATERIEL BROUILLEUR)...
