Staff review by

Ortega, not to be confused with the salsa, is a band hailing from the land of dikes and clogs. They do, however, have things in common beyond the name. A good salsa combines various elements - tomatoes, Serrano peppers, onions, lemon juice, red peppers, and garlic to create a spicy little number. Ortega (back to the band) do likewise, adding various elements of "post", doom, sludge, and the occasional black into one spicy number.

Staff pick by

28.01.2011 No. not the salsa... the four piece out of the Netherlands. 1634 is a slice of nautik post-doom or something. Part post-metal, part sludge, part doom, all awesome. They employ the best traits of each genre into a cohesive whole. Ebbing and flowing like the tides, with atmospheric passages countered by thundering sludge waves at a doomish pace.

And the CD is already in? Wow, weird, I think that Richard sent out the tapes way before he sent you the e-mail about the cd.
