PILLORIAN – “OBSIDIAN ARC” – (EISENWALD – EISEN119)
“If it’s not clear enough to you by now, Obsidian Arc is exceptional and has surpassed the expectations that were set out for it upon its initial announcement. " - Heathen Harvest
"Long live Pillorian!" - Ultraje
"Agalloch is dead, long live Pillorian" - Zero Tolerance
"Pillorian have proven on Obsidian Arc that—creatively, musically and spiritually they’re able to capture our hearts and minds " - Decibel Magazine
"versatile and passionate songs in proportion to an enviable curriculum." - Rock Hard Italy
"There's a lot of anger, hate, evil and resentment in this album. It hooks you from the beggining" - Metal Hammer Spain
“Truth be told, there are moments of Agalloch, Winterflyeth, Fen and My Dying Bride all over Pillorian’s Obsidian Arc, and that list presents a small array of diversification that the band’s influences makes easy reference to. For fans looking for something new in this black metal style, give the album a listen with an open mind.” - Echoes and Dust
"Obsidian Arc is not only a solid debut, but likely will remain a strong contender for my favorite albums this year." - Metalbandcamp.com
"talented musicians and a focused approach of extreme music….black metal or not, it is still an epic album no matter what genre." - FOLK METAL.NL
"a solid, seamless work with a great musical variety and shows us that today there are still bands with many things to say" - FRIEDHOF MAGAZINE
"Obsidian Arc is the first in what should be a long line of boundary-free metal from one of the scene’s true visionaries. " - Dead Rhetoric
"more furious, but no less majestic!" - PITCHFORK
"an interesting record with great sounds. In keeping with tradition, it also displays a clearly defined mood, image, and art style that compliments the music well." LAST RITES
"I’m very impressed with this album to say the least. Pillorian as a whole show a maturity that comes from past projects, but puts forth it’s own impressive stamp on the metal world. I can’t wait for the follow-up." - Power of Metal
"'Obsidian Arc' is definitely a great start for Pillorian. I am sure it will catch the attention of not only the Agalloch fans but also the fans of dark/doom/black metal in general." - Tempelores
"The songs on "Obsidian arc" are elements of dark metal, black metal, folk, noise and avant-garde clenched, and although these seasoned musicians deliver across the board quality, are - in addition to the slow, lingering final song the songs that the pace and pit are slightly higher, grabbing me most by the throat." - Addergebroed
"pulses with dark energy, and from the gate it assumes a muscular posture. Runaway blasting is punctuated by sinister and brooding verses in which Haughm’s signature rasp features front and center, backed by delightfully articulate drumming or a behemoth low-end that lurches in lock-step." - Stereogum
"Damned good stuff." - No Clean Singing
"In listening to Obsidian Arc, I am reminded most of Triptykon. Pillorian is Haughm’s second round on the Westworld entrance train, going straight villain this time and, I must admit, it’s a good look for him. - Invisible Oranges
"This band is carving its own bloody path, and their first carving into the wilderness is a riveting, unforgettable one." - Meat Mead Metal"
“More than anything in his long catalog, "A Stygian Pyre" captures Haughm at his most bestial." - NPR
"The general atmosphere, tricky and icy, reaches its climax with 'Forged Iron Crucible', with its roots in the tradition of Bathory." - Loud and Proud.it
"this debut is a fine piece of musical progression. " - Metal-Exposure.com
"Whatever the case, Obsidian Arc marks a debut of considerable power and pummeling force, only hiding briefly behind Agalloch's formidable shadow before stepping out into the light for some sonorous riffs and crushing doom." - Symbiotic reviews
"Haughm has joined the hallowed metal tradition of jilted band members forming new bands that make their old haunts look tame by comparison." - Brooklyn Vegan

PATRIA – “Magna Adversia” – (Soulseller – Ssr097cd/lp)
"This band knows how to make a memorable listen, and 'Magna Adversia' is possibly their best album yet!" - Soundscape Magazine (UK), 9,5/10
"Patria are purist black metal scorn, riddled with sonic defilement via songs of high ambition with spectacular results!" - Ave Noctum (UK), 9/10

· TERRORIZER - ALBUM OF THE MONTH (July issue) "Sounding leaner, more energized and angrier than ever, Asphalt For Eden proves Dälek have lost none of their relevancy and casts and imposing shadow over the current industrial hip-hop scene they helped to foster."
· MOJO - 4 star review in Urban column (August issue) "Dialing back the feedback-riven guitar cacophony and long codas for more introspective ambient electronica. It works a treat.

· DROWNED IN SOUND - 8/10 review (22 Apr) "Their sound is as murky, brutal and strangely melodic as ever... A smouldering mix of droney ambience, noise rock and old school hip hop."
· ECHOES AND DUST - review (22 Apr) "As they put it, “I don’t need a fucking anthem/I need change.” As the sombre distorted hook to dejected closer ‘It Just Is’ softly intones, “It ain’t gonna be alright,” I can’t help but feel oddly happy. Sure, it ain’t. It’s a deeply troubled world that seems to get more troubled by the day. But voices as potent and righteous as these offer glimmers of hope. I can’t tell you how good it feels just to say, “welcome back.”
· SPUTNIK MUSIC - 3.7/5 review (22 Apr) " Asphalt for Eden is thoughtful and eclectic, blending elements of shoegaze, industrial, boom-bap, and ambience both sedative and rousing. All the while, it balances a grim, overarching societal direction with a thwarted attitude. Much like the early industrial music from which they draw influence, Dälek have always sounded best nestled between transcendence and self-conflict."
· FINANCIAL TIMES NEWSPAPER - review (22 Apr)
· FIVE ALBUMS - review (22 Apr) "Show me a music head whose interest isn't twigged by the promise of hip-hop allied to experimental post-rock and I'll show you the embodiment of incuriosity."
· THE LINE OF BEST FIT- 7/10 review (21 April) "Dälek's experimentally minded hip-hop is essentially designed to push boundaries, and though it should be of little surprise that old school tendencies have crept out and across onto these seven tracks, they are not so tied to the method that it should hinder their creative future."
· THE MUSIC FIX - 8/10 review in Dominic Hemy's column (22 April) "Asphalt For Eden is no less vitriolic, menacing or visionary than before. A swelling mass of synths and effects-laden guitars build awe-inspiring, monumental walls of sound through which the beats and rhymes dance a tune riling against the ills of this world. Politics, religion, social injustice and violence aren't safe from the razor-sharp tongue of Mr Brooks; eschewing the swagger and cockiness plaguing many who try to make their (often all-too self-serving) voices heard, it is his intelligence and wit that drives these diatribes we should all be taking note of.
· THE ARTS DESK - DISC OF THE DAY (21 Apr) "While Asphalt For Eden may be less brutal than Dälek’s previous albums, it still has plenty to engage both the hips and the mind"
· MASS MOVEMENT - review (w/c 18 Apr) "The Newark trio use ‘almost’ industrial/Kraut-Rock samples to build on MC Dalek’s their political polemic, delivered with a touch of the Mobb Deep’s to create a unique and refreshing sound. Some nods to the pioneering style of the Beatnigs/Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy and the dark brooding ambience of Portishead. Delicious stuff. "
· ANTHEM REVIEW - 9/10 review (14 April) "With seven brand new tracks at their fingertips, ‘Asphalt for Eden’ brings the familiar dense sounds and entrancing beats, constantly sending shivers down the spine, while simultaneously probing the darkest quadrants of space through a torrent of overriding ambient textures and noise scales. This, combined with the powerful, unkempt flow of MC Dälek results in a direct and unabashed musical event that goes largely unparalleled in this or any era."
· LOUDER THAN WAR - 8.5/10 review (8 April) "With Asphalt For Eden Dälek have created an album that will be pored over all year... A tour de force of an album that further cements the bands place in the elite league of hip-hop artists that are still taking this art form further and further into the stratosphere."

· PUNKTASTIC - review ​(6 June) "‘Asphalt For Eden’ undoubtedly shows Dalek at their creative best, and once again pushes boundaries of not just hip-hop but underground music in general... ‘Asphalt For Eden’ is ultimately intoxicating. Dalek make no attempts to grab at the mainstream and have created an aurally challenging body of work. It’s what hip-hop needs and proves there are no boundaries when it comes to true artistry. In a world of ‘Hotline Bling’s’ and misogynistic charlatans being hailed as poets, Dalek are more important than ever and demand your attention."
· CLASH - FEATURE (date tbc)​
· SLEEPING SHAMAN - review (18 May) "Dälek is simply out there when it comes to hip-hop. Merging soundscapes, noise and dark ambient with beats into a unique, dark sound, the group is in a way hip hops answer to Godflesh."

· ​DANDELION RADIO - radio play (8 May)
· COLLECTIVE ZINE - review (4 May) – “​Harsh, brutal sonics being spoken over by a voice of startling menace"
· ONEMETAL - 4/5​ review (4 May) "They may not sound quite as damaged and vicious as in their earlier work, but what they have matured into is instead akin to some form of transcendental oracle. It’s an album that will certainly gain momentum with repeated listens, but you may be surprised how you start to return not just for the bleak landscapes of old but for the more tangible beats. It’s then with a great amount of joy that Dälek is back with a few new tricks and an even greater joy that they have already started on their next effort."​
· THE MONITORS - review (29 April) "A stark warning about the dark unseen forces that govern our lives. Within a few lines it neatly displays the uncompromising and questioning attitude that permeates every note and lyric within the album; during each of Asphalt For Eden’s seven tracks it’s clear that the listeners are held in very safe and steady hands...the societal anger that oozes from every pore
of Asphalt For Edenseems particularly pertinent at this time."
· RINGMASTER - review (28 Apr) "It provides a mesmeric and imposing romancing of the senses and imagination simultaneously acting as fuel to the creative fire of Asphalt For Eden and spicing to its rousing explorations."
· BBC RADIO FOYLE - radio play (28 Apr)
· PLUS ONE - review (29 April) "A welcome return from (most of) a genre-shaping group which has put forward seven slices of thoughtful individualism, while its protégés take a sonic chainsaw to the speaker cone. The warmth of Asphalt For Eden is a comfortable place from which to watch the carnage unfold."

GRAVY MURPHY – “THE WORLD IS YOUR MOISTURE” – (Metal Postcard –
· Rough Trade - "Next up on the ever ace Metal Postcard is this Killer LP from Gravy Murphy full of magical beats"
· Vinyl Factory - "Ten tracks deep, full of beats that swing and grooves that rumble in all the right directions. There’s elements of early Portishead, Pye Corner Audio and even Depth Charge in there but Gravy makes it all his own..."
· 4zzz (Australia) - "Eclecticism Married To Fairly Crushing Mid Tempo Grooves Makes Gravy Murphy Sound Like Meat Beat Manifesto "
· JJJ National Radio (Australia) - "Inventive & Engaging.."
· Sound Of Confusion - "Has a retro vibe running through it. There are hisses that could be from an early Kraftwerk record, as well as the warming hum of antique synths all through this piece.”
· Norman Records - "Shuffling electronica and carefully curated bleeps. All with a decent bit of analogue synth heft behind it..."

UADA – “Devoid Of Light” – (Eisenwald – Eisen104)
· Two Guys Metal - "This is one of those doom records that gives me hope for the genre as a whole, It proves there is a lot of room for the music to grow..."
· "I really need you to understand how fucking excellent Uada’s ‘Devoid of Light’ album is" - Kim Kelly / NOISEY by VICE
· “Uada is one of the most interesting & exciting bands coming out of Portland these days” – John Haughm (AGALLOCH)
· "Devoid of Light” channels Inquisition and Mgla, though it’s got some of the organic quality that comes to mind when we’re talking about the Oregon area. But the low-end heft of Uada stands out, with muscular stomping and subterranean vocals — and the way it’s juxtaposed with more traditional atmospheric leads and wails sets Uada apart. Who cares where they’re from? This is great." - STEREOGUM
· "The more you listen to it, the better it gets. I really look forward to whatever these guys put out next. - CVLT NATION
· "As far as debut albums go, this is as good as I’ve heard in a long, long time. Hopefully you and I will share enough DNA to ensure that you’ll get as much out of Uada’s scintillating fare as I do." - 3RD EYE MAGAZINE
· "A very impressive and thoroughly engrossing black metal record" - ZERO TOLERANCE

If you enjoy Urgehal, and are not afraid of heavy doses of melody that could have appeared on Dissection, Lord Belial or Vinterland albums, then this can be an album for you!" - Iron Fist (UK)

DALEK – “ASPHALT FOR EDEN” – (Profound Lore – Pfl164 / Pfl1645)
·"Hip hop noise archfiends chop-shop a Trump-felling American cruiser of uncivil alliterative growling. Bug-heavy bass and slow-rolling illbient hiss." - Mojo Magazine
·"With “Asphalt For Eden” Dälek have created an album that will be pored over all year... A tour de force of an album that further cements the bands place in the elite league of hip-hop artists that are still taking this art form further and further into the stratosphere." - 8.5/10 - Louder Than War
·"Dalek still sound somehow like the future, no-one yet has quite combined the disparate noises of post-shoegaze and hip hop as effectively (or at all?). 'Asphalt For Eden' may not be as brutal as before... this is still way left field avant hop" - 8/10 – Norman Records
·"A stark warning about the dark unseen forces that govern our lives. Within a few lines it neatly displays the uncompromising and questioning attitude that permeates every note and lyric within the album; during each of Asphalt For Eden’s seven tracks it’s clear that the listeners are held in very safe and steady hands...the societal anger that oozes from every pore of Asphalt For Eden seems particularly pertinent at this time." - The Monitors
·"It provides a mesmeric and imposing romancing of the senses and imagination simultaneously acting as fuel to the creative fire of Asphalt For Eden and spicing to its rousing explorations." - Ringmaster
·"A welcome return from (most of) a genre-shaping group which has put forward seven slices of thoughtful individualism, while its protégés take a sonic chainsaw to the speaker cone. The warmth of Asphalt For Eden is a comfortable place from which to watch the carnage unfold." - Plus One
·"As they put it, “I don’t need a fucking anthem/I need change.” As the sombre distorted hook to dejected closer ‘It Just Is’ softly intones, “It ain’t gonna be alright,” I can’t help but feel oddly happy. Sure, it ain’t. It’s a deeply troubled world that seems to get more troubled by the day. But voices as potent and righteous as these offer glimmers of hope. I can’t tell you how good it feels just to say, “welcome back.” - Echoes And Dust
·" Asphalt for Eden is thoughtful and eclectic, blending elements of shoegaze, industrial, boom-bap, and ambience both sedative and rousing. All the while, it balances a grim, overarching societal direction with a thwarted attitude. Much like the early industrial music from which they draw influence, Dälek have always sounded best nestled between transcendence and self-conflict." - Sputnik Music
·"Dälek's experimentally minded hip-hop is essentially designed to push boundaries, and though it should be of little surprise that old school tendencies have crept out and across onto these seven tracks, they are not so tied to the method that it should hinder their creative future." - Line Of Best Fit
·"Asphalt For Eden is no less vitriolic, menacing or visionary than before. A swelling mass of synths and effects-laden guitars build awe-inspiring, monumental walls of sound through which the beats and rhymes dance a tune riling against the ills of this world. Politics, religion, social injustice and violence aren't safe from the razor-sharp tongue of Mr Brooks; eschewing the swagger and cockiness plaguing many who try to make their (often all-too self-serving) voices heard, it is his intelligence and wit that drives these diatribes we should all be taking note of" - The Music Fix
·"The Newark trio use ‘almost’ industrial/Kraut-Rock samples to build on MC Dalek’s their political polemic, delivered with a touch of the Mobb Deep’s to create a unique and refreshing sound. Some nods to the pioneering style of the Beatnigs/Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy and the dark brooding ambience of Portishead. Delicious stuff. " - Mass Movement

VIRGIN KIDS – “GREASEWHEEL” – LP/CD (FLUFFER – FLUFFER007/CD)
· NME - "Are Virgin Kids the UK's answer to the Black Lips?"
· NME - "‘My Alone’ could pass for a Black Lips highpoint, not least in the vocals which uncannily recall Atlanta’s finest. There’s also a healthy smattering of whatever grit drives Twin Peaks to such head-shakingly subversive levels of intensity, alongside the knowing nous of Coathangers more accessible material. Ultimately, it sounds fun because it is fun."
· DIY - "London-based trio Virgin Kids share the same grime-under-fingernails, downright grubby mentality as fellow garage punks The Black Lips and Hinds. But with new song ‘Cracks in a Colour’, they form a gnarly manifesto of their own."

· Upcoming Kimmo Pohjonen concerts: Feb 2: Luxembourg Philharmonie (Uniko with Samuli Kosminen and Proton String Quartet)

· Feb 19: Kokkola, Finland - Conservatory Hall (solo)

· "Sensitive Skin is emotionally engaging, intellectually fascinating and demandingly exuberant." (Julian May, Songlines ***** Top of the World)
· ”…Ridiculously accessible, with strong melodies, great arrangements for the Kronos Quartet and unusual vocal harmonies provided by the Finn’s daughters. On tracks as uplifting as “Atomi”, you begin to imagine a strange world where he could even have hits" (Mojo ****)

BROKEN DOWN – “The Other Shore” - CD – (Altsphere – Alt094)
· Music Waves, 5/5 : "Osmosis is immediate for the tolerant avid music lover and eager for new challenges. Going to the other side of the shore, Jeff Maurer completed a Calvary to regain the light and become one of the great hopes of French industrial metal scene"
· Pavillon666, 7/10 : Scribble Your World reminds Nine Inch Nails with electronic drums and big bass. (...) There is at least something in this project that is not given to everyone, it is an identity
· The Grim Tower : "Everything is everywhere, even though there is still a designated and clearly audible formula. (...) it’s worth checking out if you’re up to the musical challenge. As I said, I hear some Solefald influence here"
· Musc in Belgium, 3.5/5 :"Broken Down seems to confirm that he has important and ingenious things to express in the dark areas of rock music. This second album is welcome"
· Music Scan : "Broken Down mix here a partly gothic-sounding moderate atmosphere, blended with elements of 80s New Wave and sometimes extremely obscure sounds. (...) If anyone knows the band RECOIL.... you have to imagine something like that""a successful fusion of Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails (...) Jeff's music has never sounded better than today" (Records are better than people)
· "This second album is clearly in the tradition of The Sisters of Mercy, Nine Inch Nails or Ministry (...) The lovers of the 80s German Electro / Goth scene could find there an atmosphere which speaks for itself" (Heavy Sound)
· Broken Down is one of the bands that you would recommend to people who try to get into industrial metal in the same rank with Rammstein. And that is not a exaggeration, because they really are that great. (...) a great album, one that can become the staple of the genre in future (Dutch Metal Maniac)
· you might give it a try, I think. Nine Inch Nails meet (older) Faith No More meet Carnival Coal meet Megaherz meet later Manes, isn’t that an appropriate description? I didn’t think it is either, but do you have any other suggestion?, 75/100 (Concrete Web)
· I think that this is a worthy element and it’s becoming ever more of a rarity. (...) Maybe one must have listened to Queen’s music, maybe you should have listened to Nine Inch Nails, Frank Zappa, a lot of metal, electrowave and everything else in order to grasp the full distinctive suggestions, 8/10 (Fumo, inchiostro e basso)
