Samurai Cop – 1991

Back in my youth, we used to call films like Samurai Cop “karate movies”. Well, maybe not really because there are very little martial arts fighting in this movie. Most of the time “karate movies” were Asian flicks with a lot of hand-to-hand fighting in them. Some Chuck Norris flicks qualified under the umbrella and certainly movies with Cynthia Rothrock. But there was usually no samurai in them at all. Ocassianly there were ninjas in...

Luka 0

What makes this lyric great? Luka – Suzanne Vega

I loved the lyric of Suzanne Vegas Luka already when I heard it in the late ’80s. It had so much angst that I could identify myself with it even though I was not even close to being in the situation Luka is in, in the song. The first few years I listened to it I thought this was about a child living on the second floor that wasn’t allowed by his/her parents to play...

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 gives 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...

Death has Blue Eyes – 1976

In the original Greek title, Death has Blues Eyes translates the “the Bomb Girl” which is actually a better title when you know what the plot is actually about. When you don’t know what it’s all about it might be a little too much information given away. And, to be completely honest I kinda like the Gialli-feeling to Death has Blue Eyes. So much that I, in fact, thought it was kinda a Giallo when...

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...
