Recommended Posts

I am seriously digging this album. Out June 19 on Metalopolis Records.

JESSICA WOLFF is a very busy young Finnish artist. Not only is she committed to music, she is also acting, practicing Kung-Fu and doing stunt work. Not to mention, behind the actions of this adrenaline junkie, you'll find a warm-hearted girl with striking personality. This is also reflected in her music with everything from catchy melodies to thought-provoking lyrics.


Three years have passed since her last album “GROUNDED”. During this time, she did an European tour with TREAT, her own headlining tour, which ended with a performance at the HEAT Festival 2018, songwriting and recording the new album “PARA DICE”. During this time Jessica and her musicians, the Wolffpack, have grown more together as a team. This is also shown by the fact that her band participated in the new album more than ever before. Produced by Jonas Olsson “PARA DICE” is still a JESSICA WOLFF album but sounds much more the way they sound live on stage. Harder, more direct - straight in your face.


The album title “PARA DICE” refers to going against the stream and daring to take risks in life, if you want to achieve your goals. This is exactly the motto of life of this outstanding artist!

I think she released something half decent last year or the year before, didn't she? Definitely seems to have boosted the rock elemement to her music. Nice. I'll check it out.

I listened to this one today and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Has more of a modern rock feel to it than what I usually listen to.  Musically it's heavier than her last album but the songs retain plenty of melody.  Nicely produced, with nothing I'd really consider as filler material.  I think this release is a nice step forward for her.

    • Oh deary, deary me. People certainly do get old, don't they? Not sure those videos are helping the cause, but what do you do? It is what it is, and to be fair, these guys and gal have really recaptured their sound for this album and it's a really admirable effort. Wow, just noticed it's actually a new lead singer (their third on four albums), but if memory serves, this is still pretty true to their sound and style. Not sure I've really thought too highly of any of their vocalists, this one included, but there's some cool tunes in the mix.  That 'Fair enough' tune would have to be my pick on the album, but there's a few other sweet cuts like 'Lose Or Win,' 'Feels like love' and 'You're Gone' which are all pretty true to their sound of yesteryear.     
    • Unfortunately I have to say that this one and I took a little drive down Disappointment Avenue. Oh lol, good one. Fuckwit.  That aside, it's all solid but I kept hoping the next song would be the killer cut I was after, and then the album was over and it hadn't hit my ears. The best song, in my opinion, is the opener. That is a pretty good, hard hitting tune, but sadly they never surpass it, in my opinion. Okay album, but hopefully next time they fulfil their potential...? Maybe. 
    • 1    .    Awakening 2    .    Black Hole 3    .    Through the Night 4    .    Suffocating 5    .    Learn to Be Alone 6    .    Myself 7    .    Calling You 8    .    Vicious Cycle 9    .    Help Me Out! 10    .    Remedy 11    .    Eclipse 12    .    Summertown Post-hardcore outfit OUR MIRAGE have released their highly anticipated new album Eclipse and close their trilogy with the last chapter, out now worldwide via Arising Empire. Hailing out of Marl, Germany, this four piece post-hardcore group really hits you deep in your emotions. From the ambient music to the emotional lyrics that really strike a nerve, OUR MIRAGE offers a vast variety of elements that many of us can relate to. This young group is becoming known for the emotion that they pour into their music and their latest release Unseen Relations takes that line even deeper. The group largely focuses on the problems that our youth deal with internally, but their music doesn’t just speak to them, it is very intuitive of the problems and struggles that we all deal with on a common basis. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nice album from these guys. Whole bunch of pretty sweet cuts on this one. This is my favourite of the album-   Some other cuts from the album-                
    • Pretty solid for what it is, but sadly, no killer track for me. The title track and 'King Of The Dead' and 'Taste Your Tongue' are my favourites, but none of this will be on my 2022 playlist.  
    • All in all it's a pretty decent album. First two songs and the tasty 'Say Farewell' are my picks of the lot, but everything on here's pretty solid. Biggest critique would probably be that it's all pretty similar and one-dimensional. But it's a pretty solid dimension.  
    • I guess this one's okay in places. Some cool metallic riffs here and there but overall not overly exciting. Solid for what it is, and I imagine Sword die-hards will probably dig it. 
    • Yeah, I was reading your list thinking that I was happy for you that you were that invested in your favourite albums this year. The albums in my list are far better than those, lol but I'm not sure I'm quite as passionate about them as you are about your top 10. Not sure, I say, as I will wait until the end of the year to see how my penned thoughts end up.  Anyway, I'm going to check out this VHS Collection thing tomorrow to see what that's all about. Otherwise, of your list, that Iron Allies one must be the curveball of the year, surely. Cannot for the life of me personally see what you see in that, but to each one's own, and glad you dig. 
    • Well I love my top 10 and it was basically impossible separating them. All killer albums imo. 
    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment-    
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums.
