Friday's third solo effort, as always with Seezer as his main collaborator, provided another development in his musical approach with the choice of Bomb the Bass mainman Tim Simenon as producer. Further continuing the initial experiments the two did on Adam 'n' Eve, Simenon helped create a dance-influenced album that ranges from industrial slams to clean, elegant breaks, in many ways serving as the model for his following work with Depeche Mode on Ultra. There's more than a few hints of where Massive Attack would end up on Mezzanine as well, as the low pulses and sudden guitar/drum hits on the title track show — and the fact that the lead single from Shag Tobacco was named "Angel." Friday himself is still the sharp-tongued ruined romantic of the previous albums, as apt to swoon as wittily shred and breathlessly gasp, while Seezer again provides the music and core work on keyboards and accordion (check out "Dolls") to back him perfectly.

Created in early 2007, the Adronus Project does not cater to any one style of music. Influences range from Ambient and Drone to Electronic with some Alternative and Jazz undertones in places, though he predominant style is Ambient, most songs ranging from 9 — 30 minutes in length.
Each song represents a piece of the artists soul at that particular point in time. Every song is spiritual in nature, as music is spiritual and should be experienced as such.
Artists who make music solely for the purpose of “making it big” are no longer musicians but whores to money and fame. Music should be used as a form of expression. It should be treated as an avenue for the expression of emotion, faith, and, when present, talent in some form.

Stunning! This was my initial perception just during the opening tracks (which run together as one), "Parabus/[2.1]Intro." Yes, you will imagine Tony Levin performing on his Chapman Stick, you will imagine Bill Bruford lighting up an incendiary groove on his electronic drums, and you will applaud Ramses Luna's cool-as-heck extended intro on didgeridoo — not to mention his aggressive sax playing. That's only the beginning. Cabezas De Cera — CdC, for short — are the template for the new power trio, and this threesome sounds more like a quintet. Stickist Mauricio Sotelo also plays acoustic & electric guitars, and the vihuela, an acoustic guitar first introduced in Renaissance-era Spain. The vihuela has a sound closer to a lute, and a bowed belly for augmented resonance; Sotelo obviously plays the modern version used by mariachis, which has only five strings, strung a-d-g-b-e. In addition to didgeridoo and sax, Luna also slices to the fore of the mix on flute, clarinet, MIDI wind controller, and he adds a few vocals on the album. Still, CdC's strength is as an instrumental juggernaut. Rounding out the trio on drums and percussion is Mauricio's brother, Francisco. Cabezas de Cera may very well be the best progressive outfit to emerge from Mexico — their brand of progfusion is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

It's been a very long time since German Symphonic Rock-Legend Eloy released their last album. In 1998 Ocean 2 — The Answer reminded a lot of its origins in the 70ies. Although nearly a decade has passed it seems Eloy are still the same! It's the same group as heard on Ocean 2 — for the exception of Hannes Folberth, 80ies keyboarder from Colours to Metromania, who added some keys.

The Album starts with a slightly psychedelic-fluted midtempo "The Refuge". It seems to me it's one of the best of Eloy. The rest of the album is more smooth and epical in this typical Eloy- style sometimes with female choir addition.

The Bear's music is infused with pop sensibilities inspired by the heady and adventurous music that ruled the radio in the late 1960s — when the Beatles, Dylan and Hendrix all happily co-existed in one format called "rock" and the sky was the limit. The core creative mission of the Bears has always been to combine strong, focused songwriting with instrumental chops both huge and effortless.

The Crimson Jazz Trio’s second album, King Crimson Songbook Volume 2, represents a step forward and a terrible setback at once. Jazz Trio members pianist Jody Nardone, bassist Tim Landers and drummer Ian Wallace recorded the first Crimson Songbook in the spring of 2005, and I had the opportunity to speak with Wallace about Volume 1. I recall our chat fondly and must say that Ian was one of the nicest people in the music business I ever communicated with. Upon hearing that I, too, was a drummer, he immediately said, “If you’re ever out in California, let me know and I’ll give you a drum lesson.” And had I been able, I believe he would have kept good on his promise. Unfortunately, less than two years passed when I learned Ian was battling cancer, and he died Feb. 22, 2007. If any good news comes from that, it’s that he, Nardone and Landers had the chance to lay down the tracks for the second songbook in June 2006, before illness overtook him. Thus, the King Crimson Songbook Volume 2 represents the next and final development of this trio’s explorations of the King Crimson catalog. It’s also Ian Wallace’s swan song – a stately, graceful and oh so musical stepping out.

The Crimson Jazz Trio's lineup of pianist Jody Nardone, bassist Tim Landers and drummer Ian Wallace has been careful not to distort King Crimson's melodies, but they do lots of tinkering, restructuring and harmonic adjustments on Songbook. Songs like "21st Century Schizoid Man," "Catfood," "Red" and "Ladies of the Road" are easily recognizable during the trio's opening passages, then Nardone executes catchy, quirky solos ably embellished by the interplay of Landers and Wallace.

This magnificent album picks up right where Paegan Terrorism Tactics left off. Obviously it's not Acid Bath as the songs are somewhat lighter in overall mood, but it is a VERY slow moving, dark themed album. By now (2000) AB has broken up and this is (was) Dax's new band, and you can see how dax has come to embrace darker (than usual, even for him)songs. Phantom Green is a song that is a definite slow rocker with seering guitar solos and Dax's notorious bellowing. As with anything that Dax Riggs is associated with, this album is not for the light-hearted. The music is very moving even though the musical structure is watered down a bit (in comparison to AB.) If you preferred PTT's slower moody rock, then you will mosdef dig this album! Long Live Dax!

If you long for the days when rock'n'roll frontmen had not only teeth but also fangs (i.e., the late 1980s), then Dax Riggs is probably your guy. Riggs is a goth-rock lead singer to rival pale-faced forbears like Peter Murphy and early Ian Astbury, but he also has some of the latter's later fondness for late-60s psychedelic rock. He's a guy who can lace up a pair of leather pants with a sense of purpose and probably bite the head off of whatever hapless bite-sized creature is within grasp. But for all the heat and hellfire he calls up on We Sing of Only Blood or Love, the album is undercooked, coming in light on ideas and heavy on the leaden death-blues hokum.

Catharsis seems all too common a motive behind cutting a record. It's a particularly obvious one for a man like Dax Riggs, whose metal outfit Acid Bath called it quits eight years ago and left him tooling around southern Louisiana looking for another musical direction. Luckily, there's plenty of styles in the area from which to draw inspiration, and his own blend of rock and blues ultimately produced We Are Night Sky, his first output under the duo Deadboy & the Elephantmen. Seeing as the moniker itself is a testament to negativity (referring to Riggs's loss of faith in God), it's no surprise that Riggs's own emotions come out as dark, brooding evidence of his own suffering; the result is cliché through and through.

Originally Deadboy & the Elephantmen's 2002 debut album, If This Is Hell Then I'm Lucky was reissued in 2008 under Dax Riggs' name only. While Riggs is certainly the main creative force behind this album, rebranding it as his work instead of that of Deadboy & the Elephantmen is a little confusing, since the feel and sound here is very different than Riggs' 2007 album We Sing of Only Blood or Love. When it was first released, If This Is Hell Then I'm Lucky introduced Riggs' move away from the harder, more purely metal terrain of his previous bands, Acid Bath and Agents of Oblivion, into a more eclectic sound that borrowed from psychedelic rock, alt-rock, and blues as well as metal — a journey that Riggs' continued on his later solo albums.
