Roman Sidorov was a musician from Russia with a lot of different projects. I just discovered some of his stuff on youtube recently, but had a hard time finding links to all of his stuff, so I'm sharing it here now.
He's mostly known for a dark ambient project called "Staruha Mha"(rus. "Старуха Мха"), but I was more interested in his other stuff, which is mostly a mix of very slow guitar riffs with a lot of reverb, kind of distant vocals and a bit of minimalistic ambient thrown into the [..]

Guess what? Big lips is finally back. If you're a fan of rap collective odd future, you'll know I'm talking about Earl Sweatshirt:
He's suddenly back from samoa and it seems he's not so tight with the other OF guys. It seems that his mother really has him under control, because he has a different management than the other OF guys and it seems like they really have a big influence on everything he's doing rap wise.
Check out a new track called "Home" here: http://terttlefer.com/
it seems to be [..]

Varg Vikernes has been a very productive man since he was released from prison in 2009. He released 2 Albums of new material and one with re-recorded songs. Most people had very high expectations for "Belus", the first album he released after prison. So most of them were disappointed, because they essentially expected it to be similar to the classic Burzum material. Varg has his own mind though, so he kept evolving his style, using a lot more clear vocals and better production. "Fallen" was the [..]

The kind of goofy looking guy you see above is Neige. He may be looking a bit womanly but he is a great musician. In his main project Alcest, he mixes black metal with post-rock and shoegaze. The amount of black metal has been getting less and less since the start of the project, so it sounds more like a shoegaze/post-rock mix right now.
Alcest is about to release his third full-length called "Les Voyages De L'Ame". I didn't like the last album "Écailles de Lune" that much because it felt like [..]

Drudkh is black metal band that has been around for 8 years now and they're about to release their 9th album called "Eternal Turn of the Wheel". If you like Drudkh, you like most of their albums, because most of them have a similar basis: heavy epic walls of guitar, great drumming and unique vocals. From album to album they've always tried to change their formula up a bit though. Especially on their last full-length "Handful of Stars", which was more post rock than black metal and got a lot of [..]

As you might already know KoRn was one of my favorite bands back then when I was in school. I still like to listen to some of their albums every now and then but I mostly grew out of them or something :D
But I'm still following what they're up to and I guess now they're doing something really exciting again: a dubstep nu-metal hybrid album.
I never really got into dubstep, so I don't know much about that but KoRn worked with a lot of good dubstep producers on this new project and the available t [..]

This guy really loves expensive pasta:
And his name is "Young Nigga". He's the new odd future member and just released his single "Come Threw Looking Clean" which already is a modern hip hop classic about explosions, diamonds, bitches and coming threw looking clean of course. The beat is produced by Tyler, the Creator and sounds really raw. I wouldn't try to offer this guy some cheap pasta if I were you.
Some people really believe this shit is serious but it's obvious as fuck that this is Tyle [..]

Kind of have mention this guy at least once right :D ?
I just checked the sales numbers of his debut "My World 2.0" and was pleasantly surprised: He didn't sell as many of them as I thought. It only has 2x Platinum in the US. Lil Wayne comes out and sells almost a million or more copies in the first week, but somehow I thought that Justin Bieber has managed to pull more money out of people's pockets.
Now to something else: his "music". It's not really my style so I don't like it whatsoever, b [..]

I'm finally back guys, sorry for the absence...
This is the cover for the collaboration album of Lou Reed & Metallica called "Lulu". The first time I heard about this I was wondering how this would sound. Both kind of are legends in their own musical field, but does their music really fit together?
Let's face it Metallica are in a bit of a crisis right now: Death Magnetic did pretty good commercially but it's nothing exciting honestly. It just can't compete with classic Metallica and let's not [..]
