Black Fucking Cancer / Gloam – Boundless Arcane Invokations (split review)

The year of 2019 saw some pretty cool releases, and while it’s taken time to check many of those (well, they are really many to check), it’s still better to hear some later than never. read more

Tjolgtjar – Halloween (CD review)

It’s almost Halloweeen (well, at the time of this writing, it’s tomorrow and it’s great, because I have Friday off the work, yay!) and I’d be damned if I don’t spend thime before sleep with some appropriate music. And it’s finally time I can put that little disc I’ve got from J. R. into the player, because what is better (OK, except putting the original Carpenter’s score on repeat loop) than Tjolgtjar’s surprising album from 2007 titled, well… “Halloween”? read more

Tjolgtjar – Five Tjolgtjarian Keys (album review)

No promotion can beat a self-promotion, and although – of course – I am in no way responsible for any Tjolgtjar output, some of you might know that the mighty J. R.

Interview with J.R. Preston (part III.)

You and the wrestling…how did you came to like it?

When I was young our household only had 3 channels on the T.V. Most of the stuff I didn’t watch because it wasn’t aimed at kids. One day I saw wrestling. Of course, I became a fan. Every Sunday after Church I would watch wrestling. I’m still a fan of the art of professional wrestling. It’s pure entertainment – for people who enjoy being entertained. I understand why some wouldn’t enjoy it. These are people that are annoyed by things which are entertaining. It has a “white trash” stigma attached to it, which makes it even better for me. read more

Interview with J.R. Preston (part I.)

If you ask me how I got to know J.R Preston, the person behind Tjolgtjar and couple of other projects, I honestly can’t remember, if my life would depend on it. Actually, I kinda might remember… looking for some music in 8-bit computer sounds, I went through 8-bit Emperor and Mayhem to Xexyz, J.R’s NESBM (Nintendo Entertainment System Black Metal) project and from the, it was only a small step to get interested to his music and stuff he does. read more
