Aenea - Perennial EP

Aenea – Perennial EP

The fact that the album was released in 2011 should not make you overlook it, for it is one pretty damn fine piece of music! San Diego’s Aenea made some really strong progressive metal even in an age shrouded in djent copycats. For your information, this band isn’t one.

OhBree - Death By Broomstick

OhBree – Death By Broomstick

Ever wished that poppy folk-ish music existed with brass, variations, a bit of prog and a bit of jazz? You got Sufjan Stevens, who does incredible stuff. If that’s too mellow for you, and you feel like partying more, or dancing even, well here comes OhBree with all the aforementioned elements, plus the element of surprise! Ah ha!

Am I comparing a petty little unknown band to the almighty god of…
