Free Music Friday: I, The Mountain – Saga


I can never tell how I’m going to feel when I dive into a metalcore record. Variation is limited and while I enjoy the genre, I’m never sure if a record is going to connect. The Derbyshire band, I, The Mountain, has delivered a hard hitting, technical, and interesting record. They site Architects, In Hearts Wake, Bury Tomorrow, and While She Sleeps among their influences. What really caught my attention was the lyrical content. There seems to be a theme and story running through the tracks that reminds of stories of the Scandinavian nations converting people to Christianity by force. It’s got an old viking tale running through it. Which makes sense since the record is called Saga. It’s definitely a record to listen to while reading the lyrics.

You can name your own price for Saga at https://ithemountainuk.bandcamp.com/album/saga

Free Music Friday: Either/Or – Categories of Colour


Happy New year! Free music Friday has returned! I miss spending hours going through Bandcamp and discovering new music. So we’re going to bring back free music Friday in 2019. I spewnt about a half an hour on Bandcamp the other day and downloaded a few dozen records!

To kick us off in 2019 I have Vancouver based Either/Or. Either/Or’s “Categories of Colour was released on December 21st. The thing I like about Either/Or is how they are at the same time super chill and very mathy. It’s an oxymoron, I know. But the fact of the matter is Either/Or strikes a perfect balance. THe guitar works keeps the songs interesting, while the drums provide a solid base.

Categories of Colour is available on Either/Or’s Bandcamp page and you can name your own price! Go give it a spin!
