Egor Lappo – Trancevoicer Review

Overall, I’m floored by Trancevoicer. This album perfectly blends the grandiose eccentricities of prog with the concise and pointed songwriting of pop. If you love prog, you’re not gonna want to miss this album. If you hate prog, you’ll probably like this album even more! Trancevoicer is definitely a crowd pleaser, yet it still maintains the integrity, originality, and quality any music nerd seeks in a new album.

Elder – Omens Review

Elder are among the pantheon of stoner/doom bands such as Khemmis, Pallbearer, YOB, and Spirit Adrift who've achieved critical acclaim and risen above and beyond the ranks of their subgenre ilk. Where Elder separate themselves further, however, is the loosening of their stoner/doom ties on their latest album Omens. Elder have always been the proggiest … Continue reading Elder – Omens Review
