Sons Of Otis

Locrian

Dark dark noise that emanates slowly and rises like a black fog from the decaying anus of the mummified corpse of your cheating ex-lover. Locrian are among a growing scene of artists (Oakeater, Wolves in the Throne Room, Velnias and Nihilist, to name just…

Trap Them ‘Seizures In Barren Praise’ CD/LP 2008

10th March 2009 at 8:51 am

Trap Them

Jesus-fuck-Mary-and-Joseph…this is fucking dirty, dirty grind, punk, metal! Take Nasum’s high velocity head spinning grind, that very same grind that breathed new life into the whole genre and made it seriously bloody exciting again after it’s mid-nineties stint in the punk wilderness. Then have…

7th March 2009 at 9:12 am

Queen Elephantine ‘Kailash’ CD 2008

Stoner droner mystics Queen Elephantine, the oft travelling Lords of (sonic) Lethargy, have produced yet another striking opus of snaking whirring trip rock (that isn’t actually ‘rock’) that hums and glides through your addled brain like the dawning realisation that you are imprisoned in…
