Boris ‘Dear’ 2017

1st August 2017 at 7:18 pm

Boris 'Dear'

Before I begin, I have to make a confession. It’s something that I have agonised over for days, tossing and turning for many sleepless nights. With a deep breath, here is it: Pink isn’t my favourite Boris album. I know it’s supposed to be…

Grey Widow ‘II’ 2017

18th July 2017 at 6:45 pm

Barrabus - S/T

Gather round, children, and I’ll tell you a tale. The year was 2007, the weather was British and there were fell voices in the air. SikTh, those technical metal titans, were saying goodbye after just two excellent albums, and I realised that I had…

Obelyskkh ‘The Providence’ 2017

5th July 2017 at 2:42 pm

Obelyskkh

Once known as the Phantoms of the German Doom scene for their perceived phobia of the studio, Teutonic heavy groove monsters Obelyskkh went through a burst of productivity that saw them release Mount Nysa in 2011, White Lightnin’ in 2012 and their creative peak,…
