News: Albums of the Month (April 2020 – June 2020)

KATATONIA - City Burials

KATATONIA City Burials Peaceville Records

…what we are dealing with here is a flawless piece of work  one that both critics and fans of the band will refer to as a classic in years to come. Brilliant  just brilliant! 

***** (Ioannis (John) Stefanis)

Myrath - Live In Carthage

MYRATH  Live In Carthage earMusic

For me, this live set is the perfect introduction to Myrath and I can recommend it to both current fans and those looking for a different rock slant in equal measure. It sounds to me as though the Carthaginians were more than happy to welcome the onslaught on this occasion and thankfully this album is part of the city’s history with a joyous ending.

LETTUCE - Resonate

LETTUCE  Resonate Round Hill Records

This is one of those albums that if you heard it playing in the background in some smart cafe or shop (perhaps as lockdown eases?) you would be holding up your phone with “Shazam” loaded. Eminently danceable.  Unquestionably, superb. 

***** (David Randall)

HOUSE OF LORDS – New World, New Eyes

HOUSE OF LORDS New World, New Eyes Frontiers Records

…muscled up melodic hard rock, with the “best before 1989” labels removed.

**** (Brian McGowan)

Ronan Furlong - Minerva's Meddling

RONAN FURLONG  Minerva’s Meddling Thoroughbred Music

He consistently aims to match his musical feel with related thematic content in an esoteric mix that makes ‘Minerva’s Meddling’ worthy of your attention.

**** (Pete Feenstra)

BAD TOUCH- Kiss the Sky

BAD TOUCH Kiss The Sky Marshall Records

They sum up how, through adding superior production and a more rounded sound to their already established strengths, Bad Touch have created easily their best work to date which could act as a springboard for them to step up into the big league.
