Sound Of The Day : Crown Of Asteria

If there's one band that I can always rely on to lift my spirits, it's Crown Of Asteria. It's been that way for a long, long time. (I feel so damn proud that I'm actually in a band with the incredible Meghan Wood, the woman behind this most prolific project!) Today, I'm sharing an awe… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Crown Of Asteria

Sound Of The Day : Gaahl’s Wyrd

I've been feeling musically malnourished recently. For everything I've been trying out the past few weeks, my reaction has been like this: Nope, next, nope, next, nope, next... It's been making me feel pretty fucking sad, to be honest. I'm like a different person when I have good, new music in my life. So today,… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Gaahl’s Wyrd

Sound Of The Day : Ensemble Belladonna

I don't like summer. I find myself wishing for it to be over even before it's properly begun. So, today I'm drowning out the sound of kids happily playing in the balmy heat with the song Miri it is while sumer ilast - performed by the brilliant Ensemble Belladona - knowing that it'll be over… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Ensemble Belladonna

Sound Of The Day : Slegest

It's been WAY too long since I've listened to Norwegian blackened/doom band SlegestĀ  (though this is the third time they have been my Sound Of The Day) and I've been missing out BIG TIME. Tonight I'm going to give their new album Introvert a listen, but before I do, I want to relish Ho Som… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Slegest

Sound Of The Day : Game Of Thrones – The Bells

THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THIS POST. All day I've been seeing posts complaining about The Bells AKA episode 5 of series 8 of Game Of Thrones, be it because folk think the Dragon Queen has gone mad or because they think the episodes are getting shittier as we draw ever closer to the end. I've… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Game Of Thrones – The Bells

Sound Of The Day : Wendigo

If there's one thing they do well in Quebec it's black metal. Whenever someone says 'you should check this out, it's from Quebec,' I'm always, always interested. Wendigo is one band which was suggested to me, just yesterday as it happens, and I've been really enjoying it. The video I'm sharing below features a series… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Wendigo

Sound Of The Day : Helga

I have Swedish artist Tomarum AKA Christine LindeĀ  to thank for today's Sound Of The Day, as she tagged the musician Helga in a recent post on Instagram. I couldn't resist tapping into Google and going down the dark path to find Helga's Bandcamp page, as I had a feeling I would discover something really… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Helga
