A review I wrote recently about the forthcoming new album from Hamsas XIII:
‘Encompass’ is an epic maiden voyage. To exhume a once widely overused term, the ‘organic’ ‪#‎HamsasXIII‬ philosophy behind writing and recording means that both the creative process and the end product are one and the same; as if it were the duo’s vision all along that the album itself should also double as the ‘behind the scenes’ document of how it was made. Their unyielding commitment to realising that instinctive vision, while also encompassing the pathways between setting-off and reaching their destination, is one of the album’s greatest achievements. ► by Michel on ‪#‎GothicRock‬

#HorrorVacui The band's overall sound is very punk/deathrock with a Gothic influence, reminiscent of L.A.'s FOF (Fangs on Furs) or Los Carniceros Del Norte with delightfully catchy guitar riffs, loads of fun with a dark accent. Any fan of Deathrock or Goth Rock will find this release a delight and I strongly urge my readers to pick up a copy for yourself ► by Detra on ‪#GothicRock‬

Since September 2014, I've been forced to concede that hosting a regular radio show is just something I can't fit in around my otherwise highly irregular schedule. Consequently, ' Saturday Night Stay At Home ' will be transitioning from a radio show to a mu...
