Big Brave Welcomes the New Machine

 The bio-mechanical symphony of an iron bound discarded graveyard slowly bent, molded into new form and life could be described as the sounds laid down on Montreal noise busters Big Brave’s Au De La. The five songs give feelings of blow torches, drills, grinders and hammers instead of the guitars and drums that create the […]

Yet there is great storytelling in her depressed lungs. Her exhales could wrap your heart and throat into a knot of pain, awe […]

Atavismo’s Atmosphere’s of Desintegracion

These are the sounds created by […]
