Inklings – Ambush (Single Review)

Inklings - Ambush 2000x2000.jpg

by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Inklings is the new musical venture of Kier Kemp following his departure from the popular alt-rock band Fearless Vampire Killers.

The new single ‘Ambush’ bravely confronts about someone in an abusive relationship that he knew and features honest lyrics with lines like “I’ve had enough. I’m getting out. Cause it’s getting kind of rough”. It is delivered in an ambient manner with heavy vibrant synths and pleasant varied vocals. Although the nature of the lyrics is harsh and bleak the song itself is largely upbeat but still highlights the point powerfully and in a memorable burst of melodies. This is some exciting indie rock that you need to hear.

REVIEW: Vermilia – “Vedestä Vieraantunut” (Single)

Review by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Vermilia is a female artist from Finland who has just unveiled her first self-released single “Vedestä Vieraantunut”. She has created a unique Scandinavian pagan metal sound with impressive and pleasant vocal harmonies to create a nice balance of dark and light.

The song features incredibly beautiful melodic vocals sung in her native Finnish language, which are enthralling and with fierce growls, in contrast, it gives it a great mix of metal and harmony. It possesses a hard groove through the instrumentation and is highly atmospheric, intriguing and delightfully dark. This is captivating and soaring, leaving you very hungry to hear more depthful pagan inspired sounds, so hopefully, a debut offering is on the way soon.

SCORE: 5/5 

“Vedestä Vieraantunut” was officially released on November 13th as a self-released single and is available for sale/streaming through all major platforms.

REVIEW: Streams – Streams (single)

REVIEW: Streams – Streams (single) by                                                                                  Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Epic death metallers Streams are a brutal multi-talented duo from Finland. They have just unleashed their first self-titled single, which opens dramatically with a horror film vibe effect, instantly putting you on edge, before dark fast guitars come in, greeted by fierce growled vocals, which fire speedily throughout.  This is a blistering death metal offering, which is highly melodic and ends as it started, coming full circle and hitting you hard with every last beat.

This is a brilliant debut song and leaves you exhausted, but hungry for more extreme sounds from Streams, who in just one strike prove they are a band to keep an eye.

Score: 4/5

ATLAS – vocals, bass, guitar
TURBONUKLEAR – vocals, keys, drums

The single ‘Streams’ is out now (released 14/4/17) on Spotify, Itunes, Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play through Inverse Records.
