A music blog dedicated to metal, rock, electronica and more. I mostly do reviews of underground music as those artists need more promotion. However, I won't hesitate to review mainstream stuff as well. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. Hope you enjoy it.
P.S. Sorry but NO LINKS and NO SAMPLES. ONLY REVIEWS. I don't want to risk having my blog taken down. Thanks.
After hearing about, but not listening to, the much acclaimed "Blackjazz" album, I decided to get myself introduced with the band by listening to their latest release "One One One." Shining have a very intriguing sound which reminds me somewhat of Meshuggah but less heavy and with much more explicit jazz influences. Yet, despite this very unique sound, "One One One" is a mixed affair with too many mediocre songs to make it a great album. Some tracks did stand out, especially the last one "Paint the Sky Black," but overall it's a grower. I'll have to check out and review "Blackjazz" at some point so stay tuned. 8/10
