5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked piece of kit that can make such a performace difference, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Greatly dismissed and overlooked camera straps are an essential bit of kit that can make all the difference. This one sits comfy distributing the weight nicely like you are carrying nothing. Fiddly to set up but once setting the right length the cam, drops with ease falling to rest on your side just below the hip directly at arms reach. Wish I had got one years ago. camera Safety, posture comfort, device accessibility and body movement all maximised with this little goody. treat yourself

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre redefined in 14 tracks, 2 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born Villain (Audio CD)
The pre-release write up promised us subliminal of his early influences of Joy Division, Revolting Cocks and alike. None of it. This albums drizzles on to the same "template" he has drafted a few years ago. A great template, i use the word scarcely, but a brilliant template all the same. However, like his last couple of albums, this template is now exhausted, and these 14 tracks show a man with potential but fails to capture fresh ideas, energy, sparkle, and the genuine angst of his earlier "masters". Should we expect ever improved albums from an artist, i think not, we all will peek at some point, and that should be pleasurable for us all. A good album, robust and very listenable all the same, but if like me listening to a choice of so many artists in our 24 hour limited day, next time i fancy some Marilyn, I'll be reaching for one of his other albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neph Taster - new and old, 25 Oct 2003
This review is from: Fallen (Audio CD)
There has been a lot of hullabaloo over this CD. the loyal following of the nephilim have been waiting for an "offering" from their deity Carl McCoy for too long. The record company want to throw a few scraps to them, but carl the perfectionist only want his loyals to get the master piece they deserve. The CD has been collated from a few demos, studio ideas and odds and ends created lately, and as soon as the disk starts to play, it becomes obvious these recordings are unfinished. However, if this IS a "taster" of the new works, then it is a reassurance to the die hard Nephs that Carl and Co still maintain to be able to write powerful, dynamic and fresh rock music. Opening with "Dead to the World" (probably the most worked on / nearest to completion track on the LP), the obligatory sound FX from some horror movie blend into a looped melody that transforms seamlessly into a metal industrial jack hammer, tailing off nicely to "From the Fire". This track is an eye opener. It is a reflection of a great track, guts and all, but this recording clearly is missing some embellishments. A great progression, so malleable that it could build and build escalating in a head exploding climax. Perhaps if this is reworked, it may become "finished". Thirst follows on as a second part to From the Fire, clearly just a turn around of FTF (a play around idea?.... i think so). Darkcell AD follows. a power version of the old classic, no longer subtle but dark, angry and powerful. Was this the track the band "got back together" with. Track 5 subsanity, great discordant jangling guitars backed with a pounding mechanical drum, this could almost be "Killing Joke with a really bad attitude". Hollow Doll keeps the Killing Joke guitar settings, but falls into an elizium-esque register. Still experimenting with texture, Fallen is a classic example of ambience and mood though aural presentation. Still a working project "Deeper" is slightly patchy, not dynamically consistent with the multi track layers - still some great ideas but all over the place. Premonition, flirting with the backwards loops and quasi-orchestration is going to be a great base to something one day. It almost like a movie sequway. One More Nightmare - the classic Trees Come Down but Industrial. Still as powerful, but new and improved to be angrier. This track alone could almost be the wrath of god himself - fantastic, just needs polishing. so in a nutshell, if you are a Nephy unable to wait for what is in store for us, this is a great little taster. It shows the direction, register and thinking of Carl and Tony, and is a clear indication of what to expect, and at around a tenner is worthy of every penny (even if Carl doesn't want us to buy it). However, if you are looking to have a recording of one of the most dynamically structured, competent, powerful, textured and enthralling bands of all time, although this CD demonstrates that these qualities are still very much present, you may want to wait until they are polished and are presentable as their master intends.
