24th May 2016 at 6:43 pm

Ancient Of Days

Sourvein ‘Aquatic Occult’ CD/LP/DD 2016

23rd May 2016 at 7:03 pm

Sourvein

Cape Fear River, NC natives Sourvein shouldn’t need an introduction, having pioneered an American southern doom scene with enough history to demand its own collegiate textbook; if there’s one face to pair with the name, it’s vocalist/guitarist and creative helmsman Troy “T-Roy” Medlin -…

19th May 2016 at 7:03 pm

Se Delan

16th May 2016 at 7:33 pm

Slomatics - Desertfest London 2016

“It’s a little bit fuzzy… this feeling in my headddddd…” It’s a good kind of fuzzy though and for sure, it’s only likely to get even fuzzier with a line-up looking like today’s does. After a leisurely coffee and a well overdue catch up…
