I am one man – who has a finger in a great many pies. I started this music-review blog in late September 2016 – it is just getting off the ground so please bear with it.

The name ‘Sigil Of Brass’ is taken after the song by Doom Metal pioneers, Earth. Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II is an album that stayed with me and still gets heavy rotation. Whilst it will not get reviewed on this site – I figure there are enough reviews of that album already – it is a seminal work and deserves to be in everyone’s collection. Dylan Carlson’s guitar is the sweetest it has sounded since “Bees …” album and Adrienne’s drumming is spot on – the Cello and Bass add to the atmospherics of the album turning it in to a slow, evolving, dynamic body of music.

I have a history of running labels, hosting & curating radio shows and performing music in his own right. On this site, I review music that appeals to me. There will be no mud-slinging on Sigil Of Brass. I rely on artists giving me a copy of their music, PR companies or going out there and buying the music with my own money. If you have an album you wish me to review then please use this link to submit it.

If, for any reason, you want to get in contact with me – to tell me about gigs or news of your immanent album launch – then please use the contact form below. Alternatively, use this email address (although it is not always that reliable) – [email protected]
