I’m not the biggest metal-head in the world, but this release by Psychic Dose is cueing off of the best of the metal I did manage to enjoy in my youth.
Though one could classify them as a doom metal band, they also show off influences from bands like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Budgie, at least to my ears. If there is a Part 2, I’m keen on hearing it once it comes out.
Behind only Laibach and Bijelo Dugme (White Button), Mizar were the most powerful name in the Balkan rock music scene, and crossed over into Darkwave with ease. This is a cover of The Eurhythmics’ classic hit, “Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This,” done with a heavy dose of Byzantine goth.
