From struggles with abuse and mental health to love and changing throughout life, seranine has crafted a superb album that showcases some of the best things of the folk genre. From the relatability of the songs to the feeling that she is in the room with you, singing directly to you, this album is truly a treasure.
Now that both parts are out, make sure you pick them up. While Moments: Red and Blue both shine on their own, they play best together. Choosing to release their latest set of tracks as two separate EP’s is, well, something clever. But then that’s the name of the band, isn’t it? Moments: Blue is available on streaming services and music purchasing platforms today!
Since demonstrating their capabilities on their 2017 album Far from Strangers, Reason Define has only moved upward. The professional sound of In Memory… is absolutely unmistakeable. Despite, or perhaps because of, that professional refinement, the album also shows a lot of heart.
From the very first moment, Moments: Red grips you by the ears, prepared to drag you along for one heavy journey. “The Hill” starts off extremely heavy and doesn’t relent for even one moment.
Shuulak handles their own recording, photography, and visual design, and this adds to the level of theatricality, allowing them to create a fully fleshed out concept with matching visuals. Through each track, you can see a story being told and tell that each note was thought out. The title track, “Albedo”, concludes the EP with a short ballad that leaves listeners wanting more from this truly top notch band.

Undivided sounds very much like it was released in 2007, not so much in that it sounds old but that it sounds very nostalgic. All in all, it is solid most of the way through and this band has a promising future if they stay true to their core sound. If you like dropped chords, chunky minor tones, and fist pumping heavy rock, this is an EP worth checking out.
Through “Hellbent”, Extinction Level Event is showing they are ready to take on the world, three basses at a time. Extinction Level Event is currently working on new music, and plan to have another release in the spring. You can listen to “Hellbent” on streaming services such as Spotify, Bandcamp, and Youtube. You can also find them on social media @elebandofficial.
There are a few debut albums out there that could sit comfortable in a Top Twenty and Benthos should be on one somewhere. It would be no surprise to start seeing their name pop up as openers for bands like Orange Goblin, Electric Wizard, and Mastodon; maybe even the famed Corrosion of Conformity or Clutch.
Solipsis has a feel to it that only Purest of Pain can provide. These songs feel like they are made for the stage, which is something that some albums miss when they are recorded. This album is thought out, polished, and makes a great addition to the music collection of any death metal enthusiast.
