3 min read

And VOILÁ… It’s Friday. Yap, that is a fact. EhEh

And that means (to the majority I think) weekend is near.
But whatever the case, It’s Friday and I hope you can enjoy this article.

So, stay safe out there and enjoy our beloved music…

Band: Human Serpent
Title: Heirlooms Eternal
Label: The Scars of Millions Proselytism
Release date: 30 January 2021
Country: Greece
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Black Metal
Time playing: 41:40
Cover/Music: 8/10 – 8/10
Details: To start I need to say this, Human Serpent as a “trademark” when is related to covers. Check the previous releases and you will understand what I’m saying. Related to the music. Another very good release from this amazing Hellenic Black Metal.

Band: Jakethehawk
Title: Hinterlands
Label: Ripple Music
Release date: 19 February 2021
Country: USA
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Fuzz Rock
Time playing: 38:55
Cover/Music: 7/10 – 8/10

Band: Cosmic Reaper
Title: Cosmic Reaper
Label: Heavy Psych Sounds
Release date: 19 March 2021
Country: USA
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Psych Stoner Doom
Time playing: 44:38
Cover/Music: 6/10 – 8/10
Details: I have to be honest in one thing. I know just a few bands inside this music genre, but I’m always (every time I can) ready to listen to new music. Luckily I had the time and listened to this band. I notice some Traditional Doom influences mixed with the Stoner style and some touches here and there of Psych Rock. At least as what I felt. I did enjoy it. Give them a listen.
