Tulus / Why we love the commonality of darkness and groove on Fandens Kall

Tulus - Fandens Kall - Album Review. Tulus have once again kept it classic and simple, and the result is absolutely superb. They are a grossly underrated band. @tulusband @soulsellerrecords

Frozen Dawn / The Decline Of The Enlightened Gods is bone-chillingly good

Leper Colony / Debut album pushes the boundaries beautifully

Leper Colony - Leper Colony (Transcending Obscurity Records). Musically this album delivers everything and more that this winning line-up suggests it might. @transcendingobscurity #LeperColony
