The Raging Tides 0

Exumer – The Raging Tides – 2016

When I review music I usually listen a lot to the album before I review it. Then When I have written something I tend not to listen to it at all and go on to the next project. That means that I sometimes take my time because I really don’t wanna stop listening. As in this case, Exumer is so good and I absolutely love The Raging Tides! This is Thrash Metal as it was meant to sound!...

The Class 0

The Class – 2007 – a really disturbing movie!

Just looking at the cover art of this Estonian film give me chills. I was over-interpreting it of course. Look at the SS in the title words – The Class. Aren’t those very similar to the lightning bolts used but the SS during the second world war? That was what I thought, and I have a special interest in movies that revolves around Nazi themes. I’m not sure why but I think it’s about that dark...

Aint Rock n Roll 0

The Hawkins – Aint Rock n Roll – 2017

This album is really falsely named. Aint Rock n Roll is such a lie. Because Rock n Roll is exactly what it is! That’s the closest genre to describe the album anyway. If I were to compare to something it would be a crossover between the Hellacopters and Motörhead. But never mind that now. The Hawkins has attitude and there’s a lot of energy in the music. I don’t think I ever heard something like it. There are...

Love Object 0

Love Object – 2003 – a sex doll lovestroy

Kenneth works as a copywriter of sorts. Well, forget that, not of sorts, he’s a copywriter specialized in instruction books. He’s very good at his job and finished long before the deadline every time. You could say that he has a pretty boring life and lives solely for his profession. Maybe that is why he’s so efficient and fast when it comes to creating instruction manuscripts. For this new assignment, he gets a new assistant but it’s obvious...

The Last Days 0

The Last Days – 2013 – modern post apocalypse

As always when a movie gets multiple releases the cover differs a bit from release to release. Some might look very interesting just by looking at the cover and some others wouldn’t make your head turn. In the case of The Last Days, I really like the Njutafilms release. It gives me a sense of hopelessness and I think that’s  an important quality of post-apocalyptic films. Of course, there’s a need for hope as well...

Death or Glory 0

Heavy Load - Swedish metal pioneers

If we’re talking about Swedish Heavy Metal bands, there’s one band that comes to mind – Heavy Load. They were true pioneers of the genre in Sweden back in the day. They fulfill all criteria of a cult band too. Maybe they weren’t that obscure back in the day but they sure didn’t get the attention they deserved. Maybe that’s why they didn’t stick around for long either. They just weren’t willing to compromise their...

Seventh Son 0

Seventh Son – 2014 – Dungeons and Dragons

I don’t know where the belief that the seventh son of the seventh son should have magical powers. One thing is for sure though. It’s nothing that was invented solely for this movie. I think it’s ancient folklore actually. But does it really matter? It’s true in the mythology universe regardless of where the idea was spawn from. When I bought this at a flea market I had no idea what it was. I could see that it...

TwentySeventeen 0

Travel with the Sun – TwentySeventeen – 2017

When there’s an email from a band that recently released their debut album in the inbox things can basically go in two directions. The first way is that it’s something kinda awkward on the album. Perhaps something that’s way to modern and doesn’t suit an old man like me. Then there’s the other possibility. That the music featured on the album is really good and you wonder why you never heard it before. This is...

Attack on titan 2 0

Attack on Titan Part 2 – 2015 – The story continues

When I saw the first movie Attack on Titan I wasn’t too impressed. But since I already had both of the movies I thought it would be a shame to not watch the sequel as well. I’m not sure Attack on Titan Part 2 is a traditional sequel though. It might just be a continues story. There are however some resumé at the beginning. In my case, I didn’t need it. I didn’t wait for...

One of the Boys 0

Gretchen Wilson – One of the Boys – 2007

I actually reviewed Gretchen Wilson and One of the boys once before. Don’t worry, it was somewhere else and in another language. I don’t see it as a problem anyway since opinions are like perishables and are only valid for a short moment in time. Most opinions don’t differ that much over time though and only minor changes occur. Country music isn’t my favorite genre but I do listen from time to time as I find...
