Let me be clear. This was not a good year for music. In fact, this was a bad year for music. And I don't mean deaths of musicians, tragedies, or other random sad or unfortunate events. Artistic level of albums released in 2018 was not satisfying to say at least. After a magnificent 2015 and … Continue reading The Best of 2018: Albums
Screw it. Rock is the best. And it tastes great when served with a pinch of electronic flavor.
Be afraid. Set your speakers to an eclectic mashup of industrial rock and electronic music to spice up your week. These contradictions actually make a pretty, but a very nasty couple.
Converge came back with their first new album in five years. And oh my, it was worth the wait.

This album is a pure fire, destruction and catharsis. One of the most prog LPs in King Gizzard's enormous collection of records is energetic and rewarding journey through the vast landscapes filled with mighty beasts, monsters and cosmic balance. The pace of Mad Max's pursuits is constantly present, which might be exhausting, but also exhilarating … Continue reading King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Murder Of The Universe

This is how delicacy and contemplativeness mixes with intensity and aggressiveness. Brought to you by Gorillaz, Jack White, At the Drive-In, Arca, Father John Misty and more.
Ladies and gentleman, Mastodon is back. After the weird, incoherent and hectic One More 'Round the Sun, their new LP seems like a fresh breath of great, hard, intense ideas, while maintaining modern, dark The Hunter-like sound. At first, I didn't like the singles at all. They seemed to be imitative, to be the same … Continue reading Mastodon – Emperor of Sand
This is a journey through rock, electronica, acoustic thrill and folk sadness, which concludes with a metal's grand finale. Brought to you by Goldfrapp, British Sea Power, Mastodon, Julia Holter and many more.
This is where melancholy merges with strong statements, heartbreak with mellow musical collages, classics with modern sounds, rock with electronica and rap. This is where you find darkness, even sadness, yet peace and a potential for lightness. Kendrick Lamar, Gorillaz, Mount Eerie and more.
This album is just massive. Great, big, monumental riffs, modern concept, inclusive approach, great melodies, atmosphere of doom, yet open to an everyday listener. Pallbearer probably recorded not only one of the best, satisfying, comprehensible metal albums of the year, but in recent memory. I wouldn't be surprised, if Heartless eventually was granted a spot among … Continue reading Pallbearer – Heartless
Well, there's been a while since I listened to a good album by a supergroup. Maybe even a decade. Of course, Crystal Fairy's self-titled debut cannot be compared to the masterpiece of Them Crooked Vultures, but they're quite close to Audioslave's debut. They are rocking, and rocking pretty hard, merging Melvins and Le Butcherettes with … Continue reading Crystal Fairy – Crystal Fairy
This playlist takes you on an uneasy, but rewarding road from the agressive jazz and hardcore punk, through shoegaze and alternative rock, to intense experimental ballads and fusion jazz; from the classic tunes by Pink Freud, Miles Davis and The Mars Volta, to the new singles by Ride, Spoon and At the Drive-In.
Forget about the world. Forget about the reality. Forget about the cover art. Forget about the weird band name and LPs title. Forget the fact this band released 9 albums in 5 years. Forget about the prejudice towards this record. Just listen and forget. Let the trance, psychedelia and unreality of those songs guide you … Continue reading King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard – Flying Microtonal Banana

Każda ich płyta to wydarzenie, każda ich płyta to fenomen i pewnego rodzaju kamień milowy we współczesnym rocku. Nie ma w tym zbytniej przesady. Kiedy spojrzymy na to, co Queens of the Stone Age wyrabiali przez ostatnie 15 lat, to z całą odpowiedzialnością można powiedzieć, że stworzyli nowe standardy, iście fenomenalne płyty. Jasne, były słabsze … Continue reading Queens of the Stone Age – …Like Clockwork
