With only two tracks around, over a year apart, the output is not prolific by any means, though when an appearance is made it is prescient.

The newest track to appear WHERE2NOW lyrically is self-explanatory and there is no need to add any commentary.

Despite considerable longevity and decent profile in the metal circuit, they have thus far not got round to releasing an album and Look Past The Gore And See The Art will be a welcome reveal for both longstanding and new audiences alike.

From the forthcoming album – Premature Burial – (previously released on the Hammer Smashed Faith II Compilation LP) which although it only lasts for just around two and a half minutes, leaves the ears ringing in some pleasure long after completion.

The Night Café

On a bright and sunny morning as I type, The Way Of Mary suits the sunshine with the sparkle of guitar and fleetness of foot in the upbeat tempo that spins around the room in good humour.

… the ten track LP Flashes of Quincy (available on bandcamp) marks the third album in the period.

CR-VUC, the fourth track on the album, has a more heavy rock driven pulse than much of the previously featured material by Snowball ii.

Painted Mirror – Inside Out – Audio

The US darkwave quartet Painted Mirror released their eponymous LP on the 3rd.

Painted Mirror

Painted Mirror

Draw the curtains closed, lay back, with only a flickering candle to play shadows across the room to best engage with the roughly twenty two minutes, six track, album (available on bandcamp).

The baffled soundscape delivered through the ethereal synths provides the backdrop to the dreamy spires of the music as padded sticks which sink luxuriously into the drum-skins give the compositions a darkly contemplative feeling that seeps into the marrow, whilst a dampened, yet ever persistent bass provides the depth of the compositions and delicately counterbalancing this shimmers a gently reverberating guitar with the deeply echoed vocal rounding out a sound that holds the listener in reflective silence.

The LP is a fine introduction to a band about a year in to existence and I am looking to hearing more of Painted Mirror very soon.

The third track, also (almost inevitably) the most uptempo, Inside Out is my pick of the release.
