Hot Rain - Crown of Emotions


I'd like to see the band Hot Rain on tour with the band NUN as the female vocals and their stylistics are quite similar.

The music of HR is a dynamic wave running along the line of rhythmical synthesizers melodies and strong, emotional, a bit capricious vocal. A sonorous voice sounds perfectly when combined with cold electronics and constitutes a distinctive force extinguishing itself from the vivid background of sounds.

Diorama - A Different Life


The new album of Diorama is a bit like drinking black coffee and red wine:you feel invigoration, nostalgia, affection and also a bitter taste. Cause that's what the album is like: on the one hand melancholic, ironic, thought-provoking and on the other hand energetic, dynamic and electrifying. I don't know if you get involved into discussion on whether “A Different Life” sounds like Diorama or not - at least this time there's a good reason to debate as the album is really good: ambiguous and provoking, tough not necessarily amusement-oriented. One thing is sure – a fair dose of good music is guaranteed.

Zentriert ins Antlitz - Diametral


I usually try to approach every release without expectations or prejudices, however, when it comes to such projects as ZIA no dispassionate analysis is possible.
