Review of Amalgamated, an experimental-type band interested in nu-kraut explorations, that kinda almost got there but didn't quite. Published at Heathen Harvest and clemently edited by Sage Weatherford.
"[It] felt tentative as though it was scared to really explore places
interesting and new, preferring to circle the same safe neighbourhoods
of well-worn genre tropes. There was nothing wrong with what was
offered, certainly, but for my personal tastes (and what I suspect are
the experimental goals of the Amalgamated project), there was nothing
innovative or exceptional."
