Earth - HEX; Or Printing In The Infernal Method (2005)

Good stuff, actually one of the best releases of this band, more experimental, more dark and more drone of course, the cover of the release says it all, is like being in an old farm, haunted and creepy, just the way it should be... i don't have to say more...

Micromelancolié / Problems That Fix Themselves 'Fractures' split (‏ (2011

I'm not sure how to bring this to you, or how to call it in the first place, i mean, i liked a lot, just because i like experimental music, a lot, is a weird feeling, but i'm very pleased, let's just call this noise/techno/melancholic/experimental music, yes, i think that's a good label to this, i don't know if i'm too ignorant or this is just very different and unusual, the thing is that this is not Drone, this has nothing to do with metal or anything like that, this is noise with some touches of melody and melancholic parts, just random new form of art, and i like it, a lot, is like a soundtrack, for your lives, very good indeed, check this out, if you like musical experiments, this is your chance. Because in the end we all decided to listen to weird music, listen to music socially rejected, we are the rats in this society, we are few and smart, unique and powerful, we are the wolves... no one can't refuse this concept..

The Melvins - Gluey Porch Treatments (1986)

The first official release of this awesome band, i did a review of two releases some time ago, but this is fucking obligatory if you liked those releases, just because this is the very first release and it's a full length and also is a compilation of random old school punk influenced songs all unique and original, just like the band, and again, if you liked them, you should totally check this out...

Band: The Melvins

Nadja - Touched (2007)

I don't feel like doing a review right now.. it's curious because some people love my reviews, some people hate it, i don't think i'm good at it anyways, this is another great band in the small and fogotten genre of Drone, very good, different only because they decided not to do a slow drone like Sunn O))) they're more like Earth in my point of view... they're like a darker and gloomy version of the bests songs of Earth..

Band: Nadja
Disc: Touched (Re-recorded)
Year: 2007
Country: Canada
Genre: Drone Ambient/Doom Metal}

Asva - What You Don't Know Is Frontier (2008)

Without doubt, a fucking masterpiece in Drone, forget about the endless dark and gloomy track, the powerful amplifiers now are at the mercy of the spiritual ritualistic music, suddenly there's no such thing as the society, suddenly you're lost in an endless rainforest, your mind is reaching happiness, yes, happiness, abandon all hope, you're now a spirit, free, shapeless, boneless, now you're matter, you are the master of your own self, epic, melancholic and very very ritualistic, this is the pure definition of this release.. The members of this band are very experimented, hey have a lot experience in this genre, maybe that's why this sounds so fucking wonderful.

Don't start listening this release in order, you should always start with the track "A Game In Hell, Hard Work In Heaven", and if that single track doesn't changes your whole life, then you don't like drone, simple, but effective, then of course you can listen the whole release, in any order, the point is that i started in this genre with this release (and, of course, Black One of Sunn O))).), if i were a good reviewer, i would give to this a fucking 200/10, this is beyond labels and qualifications, this is Asva folks....

Band: Asva

Boris - Absolutego (1996)

Holy shit, you need a trip?. Sometimes i envy japanese people, they're just in some way perfect, weird, but every single shit that comes to the western society is pure gold, and those things that stays in Japan are in Japan only because we are not ready for such perfection, in this case this Drone/Psychedelic/Stoner/Doom/Sludge/Ambient/Noise/Dream Pop/Rock band, named Boris after the release of the CD Bullhead of The Melvins, there is a track named "Boris"..

Let's talk about this album, is like just the soundtrack for a bad trip in acid or meth, like Sunn O))), you just stay staring at the sky with your mouth open dreaming about anything, the meaning of life actually means something to you after this (because in my case, life is meaningless, if you think life has some meaning, then this release will make you think the opposite, welcome to nihilism bro, land of the free, home of the brave..),  
is a fucking hour long, a fucking hour of noise and drone, it actually change the way you see your life and reality, it's Boris people, it's Japan, something must happen, if you wanted a radical change, this is it, if you liked Drone, Sunn O))) and others, this is the next level towards madness and ilumination, this is the ultimate, this is the miracle of the cosmic gods made through music, take it or leave it.

Fucking Protip: Listen to it, all, the whole track, without interruptions, sit, take drugs or whatever, and listen to this 01:05:34  masterpiece..
