June Issue Corvid Canine"At the left hand of chaos sits eros, at its right thantos" LP Review

Now here is the June issue of the zine! Thanks again for everyone's patience,and no worries more issues will be on the way.

Corvid Canine " At the left hand of chaos sits eros, at its right thantos" LP

I've been a fan and a personal friend of Matt Borders for some time and have always taken an interest in his projects from Corvid Canine to his more atmospheric project the Sepia Raven. Now a days there are not to many artists that grab my attention and I have to say upon first listen I was really drawn into his latest release from Corvid Canine "At the left hand of chaos sit eros, at its right thantos.” The musical approach is very reminiscent to Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Igorrr, Whourkr, and Aphex Twin while the vocal approach is very angry, emotional, and sad at times. The chaotic mixture of aggressive and fast to subtlety and beauty make great bedfellows in the wake of the destruction left behind. The mix is done very well and all the sounds compliment each other and not over produced, but not ear garbage either. The metaphysical concepts that sow their way into the titles and lyrics are definitely a win as well! So to sum it up in a nutshell what I appreciate most about this release is regardless of the influences that might have created this album musically or lyrically the entity takes a life of its own and shines on its own which seems to be rarity in this day and age. I can go on naming countless bands that imitate, but few that take on their own likeness and whether you agree with me or not Corvid Canine has created its own identity which separates it from the others. I look forward to hearing more music from this insane genius!
