WitcheR/Velm (a split album review)

After a little break we’re back on the track with yet another interesting release from WitcheR’s discography. The last time, if you remember, we’ve been dealing with their split with Vrag, and now it’s another split, this time with another Hungarian project, Velm. read more

Building the monument to music (an interview with H.)

That Indonesian goregrind/brutal death metal/slamming BDM scene is massive, there’s no doubt about it. Neither is a surprise that other genres not only exist there, but they produce some of the best music! I am not kidding, and today I want to introduce you to a project you should keep your eyes (and ears) on. read more

Animal Lovers (an interview with Vox Mortis)

An interview with Vox Mortis should set back the trend of mine to interview artists I’ve either reviewed or simply liked. And because those guys have released a really strong debut album, one can’t but give this promising new band a stage so they can proclaim their message. I’m glad to report Rubber Axe webzine is one of those stages.
Therefore, without any further ado, let’s see what’s new on the Indonesian scene.

Choppin’ Headz #1 (zine review)

Choppin’ Headz zine has reminded me it was quite a long time since I’d reviewed anything printed. Well, it’s about time to change that. Indeed, it seems like I hardly read anything at all! It’s not true, though, but still… read more

WitcheR/Vrag – Hőseinkért (split review)

And just when you might have started to think I’ve forgotten about to continue my reviews of WitcheR discography, I’m back! After the “Boszorkánytánc”, it’s not only WitcheR this time, as “Hőseinkért“ is a split between Roland’s and Karola’s project and Roland’s solo work (Vrag). read more

Vox Mortis – Avignam Jagat Samagram (digital release review)

So you are in a mood for some great sounding death metal? You know, something in the vein of the old school USDM? Well, for that we’re not going to check the new releases in Florida or New York, believe it or not. Instead, we’re gonna go to a distant place…Jakarta, Indonesia. Because I just happen to have some goodie for you. read more

2-Headed Shark Attack (a movie review)

Well, alright, this last Tuesday the time was ripe again to just lay down on my couch. Nothing special, this time comes around regularly – every day. But that last Tuesday was special – I’ve decided to make some efforts to actually watch movies I’ve amassed on DVD/BluRay format. Because, you know – I buy movies, but I hardly have enough time to watch them. read more

Target (a 2018 movie review)

Oh well, that’s something to talk about! Target, an Indonesian production from 2018, has appeared on Netflix (and thanks a lot for this and other Asian movies available through that streaming platform!) and because I was in a mood – again – to watch some Indonesian horror (after being quite disappointed with Iko Uwais’ 2018 movie “The Night Comes for Us” I’ve watched a few days before), I’ve chosen this movie. And why not right? read more

The Queen’s Conjuror (a book review)

The Queen’s Conjuror, subtitled “The Life and Magic of Dr. Dee” by Benjamin Woolley is a book about, well, Dr. John Dee. And it’s really true to the subtitle, as the whole volume tracks no only the life of the famous occultist and alchemyst, but we have also a chance to glimpse into the other spirit world through his adventures with skrying with the help of other famous person in this venture, Edward Kelley. Or do we? read more

Be aware of those chakras! The 3rd Eye (movie review)

Not that I don’t have like a 1000+ movies to choose from, but you know how it goes – the more you have, the harder it is to choose. But I am in a mood for an Asian cinema, and I haven’t watched anything horror related for some time either, so the choice has been made. read more
