Feels good (comfortable?) when it's dark.................


Let me introduce you to Voida - Igor's (Stoned Jesus, Snakerider) solo project. Conquering a very emotional kind of singer-songwriter genre he's being influenced by Nick Drake, Tim Buckley, Leonard Cohen, Peter Hammil, Steve Von Till, Matthew Parmenter, Brian Borcherdt, Vic Chesnutt, Elliot Smith, A Silver Mt Zion, Neil Young, etc.

This is a second long-play of Voida called "Colour Me Darkness". The first part of this album sounds like a  good kind of an autumn melancholy, while the second touches more personal vibes dragging you to the darker part of our personalities & making the album sound more gloomy.
Voice, instruments, recording, lyrics - done with all one's heart and soul.
This is a very atmospheric offering from a talented musician, which perfectly suits the weather outside your window. It will remind you of something very personal, something you maybe tried to forget once. Go ahead and listen to it if you're not afraid darkness to colour you.

More Good News from Finland...

Demonic Death Judge/Semtex/Frogskin

This split was really big surprise to me! Three greatest bands from the Finland's underground appearing on one piece of plastic. Limited to 500. Released by a couple of mastodont labels. (My math knowledge says to me - 100 copies per label)

1st track by DDJ that opens this book callad "Kneel" starts with Weedeater-like riff and goes straight by the same road. Second one "Beneath The Monument" reminds me old good Iron Monkey's era. And then it turns into more "melodic" stuff with a cool voice-over samples (by EHG's recipe). They're also having a new album out that have a name "Descent". You can stream it in full here. The level of this band grows like a good fertilized weed.

Semtex are cool sounding newcomers. I felt in love since thir 1-st CD-r demo! Weedy tines with sweet/angry guitars ala Bongzilla, Earthride, Hawg Jaw. Think about tatooing your butt/tits (of course if you have a free place on your skin) with next words "In Bud We Trust" ! It will be a good one if you place it next to "Cannabis saved my life" (by the neighbour band Bud Junkies)


What I really like about Frogskin that you never know what heppens next. Sometimes it goes terribly slow and heavy, sometimes fast as a crusty fuck. Arrgh...goodness. So long awaited 3 new songs since the selftitled LP in 2008. The split with cool canadian Powerviolence/Sludge/Grindcore band Mudlark should be out on 10 inch vinyl like a year or two ago but it didn't heppen. So these three raw sludgy steaks are made of a frog skin. Lick 'em and come to the deep cave trip. Standing on the one step with Finland's own Loinen, Stumm (RIP), Fleshpress.


The volume 1 in the name of this fabulous split gives us a hope that next time we can hear more exclusive tunes from some good bands from some interesting country...maybe Australia or New Zealand, Ukraine, ehh )))...why not ?))).
