Roadburn 2015 - Artwork by Arik Roper

Walter & Co pride themselves on the attention to detail at Roadburn – from the bands they pick, to the artists that exhibit, the curators that they invite and everything in between. This attention to detail extends to the audio recordings that they make…

Brume ‘Donkey’ CD/DD 2015

26th May 2015 at 7:39 pm

Brume

I don’t trust that donkey one bit. She’s got a donkey’s head (‘natch), human boobies, scale-y lizard skin, an exhausted dragon for a tail, a bearded Neptune-type dude for a backside, an elephant’s trunk for one arm, a swollen pot belly and a rather…

Lord Dying ‘Poisoned Altars’ CD/LP/DL 2015

24th May 2015 at 1:26 pm

Lord Dying

I was very taken with Lord Dying’s 2013 debut album, Summon The Faithless, a scathing, seething mix of High On Fire riffola, hoarse, phlegmy Matt Pike-esque vocals and Crowbar heft and chug with occasional death metal and tech flourishes that sat very firmly in…

Iced Out

Undersmile 'Anhedonia'

Undersmile are one of the UK’s brightest hopes in the doom scene. Having bulldozed everyone with their stunning debut, Narwhal, the band are now unleashing their 70+ minute opus Anhedonia, to an eager public. Anhedonia is proving to be a much more experimental force…

Legion Of Andromeda ‘Iron Scorn’ LP/DD 2015

13th May 2015 at 7:04 pm

Legion Of Andromeda

So I got into this Japanese band called Legion Of Andromeda. That’s not a seventies space opera name. They really mean it: it’s about the entire constellation, heading towards us to devour us like the maggots we are, and they just so happen to…
