a “Different” EPK for Chinawhite

Reviews keep coming!

cellar dwellers - junkyard chronicles part 1German Crossfire Metal Webzine wrote about the first 2 EP’s from the Cellar Dwellers! And they liked it. Read the German version here.

With the next translation by Google:
 
Granted, the Netherlands has been musically a blank spot on my musical map. This is now changing with Cellar Dwellers: The band has released “The Junkyard Chronicles Pt. 1 + 2” the first part of their planned releases, which should include a total of four EPs. The band is dedicated to the various influences of rock and produces a diverse sound. Driving, punchy classic rock with a pinch of punk is just as present as bluesy and dark songs in the style of the early Black Sabbath. Of course there are no guitar solos as well as recurring, polyphonic and ecstatic vocal passages, which are a nice change to the vocals, which are otherwise very pleasantly rough. In music like “Ramones”, there is also something in it musically, the style of the punk legend has been successfully adapted without being compellingly contrived. For Oldschool Rock the songs are extremely powerful, the quality of the tracks is a big plus. All in all, it should be noted that fans of the old rock sounds should stop by here, it is worthwhile in any case. If you like Black Sabbath as much as the already mentioned Ramones, you will definitely be in good hands here.
 
Thank you / Danke Clemens!
marenna - livin no regrets
For Marenna also 2 new reviews can be found. First one is from UK’s Frenzy Fire. They say the album will keep you smiling and singing from start to finish. Thanks Mathew.
The next one is in Portuguese (I think), and you can find that one here. Well the overall score is 91% so I do not think I need to add more… Thank you Marcos.
cryptic nature - pandor
German Magazine Empire have written a nice review of the Pandor album.
You can read some quotes on the Cryptic Nature website, as well as find the whole article (in German).
Thank you Martin.
earthshine v - abstract patterns
And also a nice one for Earthshine, in Empire edition 125. Martin writes:
Peter Cox, the Chinawhite guitarist, continues his journey into instrumental electronic music with Abstract Patterns. The Dutchman describes the music as ambient, new age, film music and lounge, and that hits the spot. The often very melodic themes and sounds invite you to dream. The guitars that are added here and there create a welcom variation. For the quieter moments in life.
Thanks Martin!
Find all the music online, or the CD’s in our webshop or your favourite retailer.

Reviews!

still living - ymmijSunrise Auranaut - Insertermarenna - livin no regretsearthshine v - abstract patterns

 

 

 

Of course we send out all our releases to the press, hoping they will write about it. Alas not all magazines and websites let us know, but here a couple of recent reviews we enjoyed reading:

Heavy Paradise on Still Living – Ymmij And with a 9/10 score I think they liked the album as much as we do!

Zeitgeist – the Rocker also wrote about the Still Living album here. Plenty of good stuff according to Mr. H.!

Rockportaal wrote a piece about the Inserter album from Sunrise Auranaut. It is in Dutch, so some quotes:

  • lots of bombastic tinged instrumental prog spiced with jazzy influences with an overall Seventies mood
  • no easy digested songs here
  • a splendid listening challenge

The album gets comparisons with King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Par Lindh Project and classical composers like Grieg and Tchaikosky.

The Metal Mag spent time with the energetic Marenna live album Livin’ No Regrets. And calls it brilliant!

And also some words on the latest Earthshine release Abstract Patterns! Dmitry from DMME has a unique way of describing his listening experiences and had a few smiles to share.

Thanks to all the writers!
