Anal Veritas Happy Estella, 2017
Besides 'Estella' we are also happy to see another release by Anal Veritas. It's a fact that this band actually functions and works in a very particular way, that is a slow one :-)

[Review] HALF Gramme of SOMA - Groove is Black

HALF Gramme of SOMA - Groove is Black
Every band that starts with a nice debut album doesn't have by necessity similarly nice follow up releases. HALF Gramme of SOMA is not one of those bands.
