[Review] OTEHI - Garden of God

OTEHI - Garden of God
"When there's a severe winter and people are going through difficult times due to lack of heat or food, this is 'OTEHI'. When someone we love is sick or dies, this is 'OTEHI'. When epidemics strike us, when people die, when there is no more hope, this is 'OTEHI'.
'OTEHI' is not only an ancient Lakota word, it's a brotherhood, a way to conceive the world.

[Quick Fixes] Low Sun - Icicles

Low Sun - Icicles
'Low Sun' from London, last June self-released a single with the title "ICICLES" which is actually their second release after their 2016 demo (Prologue - The Demo).

Being already very fond of the band since the day I listened to their demo I was happy to see 'Low Sun' coming up with a new release. Although, to be honest, I was kinda hoping that this would be a full release.
