Ringworm – Snake Church

Snake Church by Ringworm

Ringworm is back.  Once again, though, they aren’t just back with a new album – they’re back to redefine the hardcore genre again.  After damn near birthing the crossover thrash sound from their hardcore punk roots, Clevo’s own are back…

Electronomy Department – Fog of Battle (sampler)

From the same sort of synth-drenched electronic Elysium that spawned acts like Faith and the Muse comes Electronomy Department, with a four track sampler of tracks from their upcoming “Fog of Battle” CD. “Famous Last Words” opens the brief intro…

Tiffany Gow - Deeply Drowning in Deception CD cover

Tiffany Gow’s Deeply Drowning in Deception is another case of not judging a book by its cover. If you go in cold, you’re going to get smacked in the face. First, the soft focus cover sets your expectations completely incorrectly.…
