Melana Chasmata ~ Triptykon
Melana Chasmata ~ Triptykon
5.0 out of 5 stars Gloriously Punishing!, 31 May 2014
A stunning second album from Triptykon, as dark and solidly heavy as you could wish for. If you liked the funereal atmosphere and crushing tones of the first album you won't be disappointed. Not necessarily an easy listen, but hugely rewarding. The distinctive guitar tone is as monstrous as ever, and Tom's incredible vocal performance is superb. The band as a whole are on top form. Prepare for a grin between bleeding ears!
Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4) by Dan Brown
4.0 out of 5 stars Not Purgatory at all, 26 Feb 2014
Dan Brown's latest Robert Langdon thriller is, as usual, a pleasure to read. I love the historical literary and art references and the descriptions of some of the most amazing places on Earth. The history lesson is always the slave of the story, not the master, and the pseudo Indiana Jones adventure is intriguing from start to finish with plenty of twists and turns. If you've enjoyed the previous Langdon stories you'll certainly enjoy this too. One small criticism perhaps is that occasionally events become a tad far fetched, but this by no means spoils the book. If you've not read any Langdon stories get The DaVinci Code and read the sequels in the correct order, you won't regret it!
Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times &hellip ~ Fair To Midland
4.0 out of 5 stars Fair Dinkum, 7 Aug 2013
I bought this on a whim, based purely on being amused by the bands name. Having been a rock/metal anorak for nearly 30 years I was surprised to have not heard of Fair To Midland before. On first listen I thought I'd bought an average college rock type album but I have found myself returning for repeat listens and something about this album is bringing me back. Strong hooks, great vocals, tunes that bury into your brain. I especially like " The Wife, The Kids and the White Picket Fence". Tonally it reminds me a bit of Cave In's "Antenna" album but a tad more subtle. Overall a little gem of an album, glad I got it!
