Exit Strategy - Exit Strategy (Album Review)
"EXIT STRATEGY’s self-titled debut album is very difficult to quantify. They don't really fit into any genre"

"It’s clear that there’s talent in the making of this album"
Exit Strategy Album Review
"Subject to the dark atmosphere and inspiration clearly tied to tradition 80s, the style of the duo seems to be open to any kind of influence and, as recently stated by the same Waddon in an interview circulated in web, his music is to be considered released from the definitions and the introduction of elements available also heterogeneous, both from punk from post-punk as well as from the goth and metal. All these features actually are detected in the work of the Exit Strategy.........." [Read More...]
Exit Strategy - Exit Strategy (Album Review)
"Rage Of Decay is at once a whopping song. An intro to what The Mission reminds and then turns into a guitar riff from Killing Joke stable. For the chorus they switch up a gear. Halfway we get a more quiet middle piece with beautiful guitar and keys to build up again for the final song. Well done."

"........an album yet many beautiful moments." [Read More...]

Exit Strategy briefs us for a descent into HELL YEAH!
The UK's Exit Strategy strikes us down again with their latest EP, "Briefing For a Descent Into Hell". Once the first track gets its gothy groove going, it doesn't stop until your hair has deflated. Frankly, the overall well-organised sound, with catchy beats, Corpus Delicti-esque vocals and smooth guitar work, doesn't brief us for a descent into Hell, but rather into Paradise! Goth Paradise! Thank B.L. Waddon and W. Westwater for this great new EP and get it here while it's fresh! G.

COMP REVIEW: VARIOUS ARTISTS - Gothic Rock Around The World


Compilations are always worth the price of admission. Always. I have hundreds of samplers, compilations, or press collections from labels. Hundreds. Any time I see one being offered, I am there with a smile on my face, hands out, ears ready. Either I am about to find a new band that I will love, or at least like, or I am about to find an entire albums worth of bands that I know that I never want to hear again. Of the hundreds of comps I have, there have been a bunch where I finish listening to all 18, or 22, or 12, or howevermany songs, and I realize that I didn’t enjoy a single damn thin on the album. Then, I am glad. Because I know after that that those are X bands I never need to care about again. On the flip side though, there have been times where I have picked up samplers or comps and found bands that quickly became my favorites. So, its a mixed bag, but it is a mixed bag that is ALWAYS a good idea.
This compilation is no different. There are a few bands on here I really don’t care if I ever hear about again, a few bands that are nice enough to hear on a compilation, and a few bands that I outright enjoyed hearing. I don’t want to harp on about the bands I wasn’t a fan of, and I don’t really wanna do the whole 'oh... this one was ok, I guess' thing either, so instead, I am just going to tell you outright which song I liked the most. 'Arise' by Exist Strategy. Holy Slayer, this is a good one.
The album is a great grab bag of polished/unpolished, dynamic/flat, amazing/ok songs and bands. I cant stress enough how good the Exit Strategy song is, so if you are reading this, grab this sampler. Maybe you wont agree with me, maybe there will be a different song you like more, maybe you wont like any of them, maybe you will like every single second of the compilation, its hard to say... that is the best part about compilations. They are always a mixed bag. A welcome mixed bag.
Exit Strategy I
"The nine track album 'Exit Strategy I' is an industrial dream of matrices and guitars,metal and goth intertwined.The nice thing about Exit Strategy is that there is something for everyone. It has a nice hint of Prog with a dark twist to create the post-metal sound.Hailing from the U.K., Exit Strategy is the brainchild of B.Waddon and his fantastic talents.If you like something that appeals to multi-genres check him out on Facebook and BandCamp."
ALBUM REVIEW: EXIT STRATEGY - Exit Strategy I

Astral shifting colors and warping wood. When I close my eyes and listen to this album, that is what I imagine. I can feel the trees around me come above and grow in millions of directions, the skies and the sun spilling out into each other and mixing, blending. And I hope that is what this project was supposed to do to me.
The lyric-less feeling of the music gives rise to a lot of interpretation and reflection, which I always love. I’m struck with memories of Jerry Vayne's STELLAR album 'The Attic' throughout this album. While this album is very different in its own way, I can still feel several similarities.
This is an interesting piece of work, and I think it presents itself in a very solid and good light. One of the distortions used on the album is a little too lo-fi for me, but other than that I wouldn’t change anything, and I even find myself liking the crackly digital distortion often throughout sounds like 'Wrath'.
The title of the work leads me to believe that there is going to be a part 2, and possibly even a part 3 (all the best stories are trilogies, right?) and I cant wait to put them on, pop in my headphones and sit out in the woods, feeling the music and getting into the images that I can conjure up.
Strong album, strong ideas, and a strong voice, even if the voice is wordless. I recommend this one.
