The Hundredth Century Collapse is an ambient drone solo project based in Montreal. The first album of this project, Journals of the Black Lake, was recorded with processed synthesizers, piano, guitars. Each track tends to capture its own atmosphere and create a strong soundscape during the near one hour and fifteen minutes release with the use of minimal drones on the different instruments.

The album was recorded in my home studio. The recording began in Feubrary this year and ended two months later, in April. The album was released on bandcamp this month.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Journals Of The Black Lake] is nothing but a work of art, twelve songs stretched over an hour of epic drone. This album navigates flawlessly in the sequence of repetitive tunes. It is the kind of art that even in your most unimaginative state you will still find a method to reason with the sound and accommodate the logic to it. The entire effort behind this title is MASSIVE and designed not to move you but to move the soul within. It’s the sound that echoes your mind when you are in a state of loneliness. By the time you are done listening to [Journals Of The Black Lake], it will most certainly leave a memorable emotional scar on you. By all means get it.

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
