NEWS: Reflections see only black in the mirror…

How do you make something that is already Earth shatteringly heavy sound even heavier? The answer to that one is to get Buster Odeholm of Humanity’s Last Breath and Vildhjarta fame to mix and mastered your cut at Impact Studios. He’s done exactly that for new cut “Noir” from Reflections and it can’t be a coincidence that

NEWS: Reflections lift the black veil on “Cicada”!

We didn’t think it was possible for Reflections to get much heavier or darker than their album “Willow” but clearly we were wrong judging by new single “Cicada” which sees a guest appearance from Calle Thomer (Vildhjarta, Humanitys Last Breath, Stoort Neer). There is one man who could make them heavier and they have turned

Listmania: Metal Noise Top #5 Albums of 2020!

Probably the toughest category of our listmania awards series each year has to be the albums. These pages have had a daily review during the year of the Great Plague of 2020 and there have even been some occasions when there have been more than one. So that’s 365 plus records to consider, which is

Playthrough: “From Nothing” from Reflections!

The single that saw the return of Twin Cities Minnesota DJentlemen Reflections after four years in the wilderness in 2019 was “From Nothing“. A skull crushing affair that is a worthy follow up to their brilliant critically acclaimed 2015 album “The Color Clear“, it turned out to be just the tip of the iceberg with the equally

Playthrough: “Synthetics” from Reflections!

Back in February we reviewed “Willow“, the return after an almost 3 year hiatus from Twin Cities Minnesota DJentlemen Reflections and like a fine Wine, the band just gets darker, richer and more full bodied with age. Having already served up a couple of playthrough videos, they’ve returned with one for album opener “Synthetics“, filmed

We were due to be seeing Minneapolis, Minnesota DJentlemen Reflections at Tech-Fest in just a couple of weeks time but… so here is an 8 string guitar playthrough of “Empathy” from their February drop “Willow“, mixed and mastered by Jeff Key which is available right now over at bandcamp. Visionist guitarist Matt Judd is going

Playthrough: “From Nothing” from Reflections!

Tech-Fest, like Bloodstock may have rolled over to 2021 but we’re still hopeful that Reflections will return next year. They have unleashed a drum playthrough of their first warning shot – “From Nothing” which appeared in November 2019 as a warning of what was to come with new album “Willow“. Interestingly the suggestion is that

Playthrough: “Seven Stages” from Reflections!

We didn’t see it coming but the news that Minneapolis, Minnesota DJentlemen Reflections will be headlining Friday night at Tech-Fest this year was greeted with a smile in these parts, it is going to be something special. They’ve only just dropped their new album “Willow” and have shared this guitar playthrough for stand out track
