Hey, Check This Out! is an irregular column of DIY reviews, where we give you just the basic facts about albums that we wanted to give a full review but for some reason it never happened. Without further ado:

Artwork by Andrew Millar of Patrons of the Rotting Gate

Band:Patrons of the Rotting Gate.
City:London, United Kingdom.
Genre:Progressive Black Metal ~ Sorrowful dissonance.
Interesting fact:The Rose Coil is the proud recipient of a 0% review from The Metal Archives, with the awesome line "If I wanted to drift aimlessly, I'd snort some ketamine."




Band:DreamLongDead.
City:Athens, Greece.
Genre:Primitive monolithic punkish doom death metal.
Interesting fact:Recorded in Universe217's studio. A band that's pretty much the opposite of primitive and punkish.



Cover art by Joshua Klegerman

Genre:Jazzy post-black metal.
Interesting fact:Leading internet metal experts are trying to convince the band to make a new album. We give such endeavors our full support.

  1. That's funny re: Rose Coil, because I remember it getting a lot of good press when people started discovering it. I hope MA doesn't become the YouTube comment section of metal reviews.

    1. I don't that will happen, they take the reviews quite seriously. But the 0% rating is ridiculous of course, and the review read more like the writer wants to make a point about modern metal.
