Dead In The Woods / Diet Pills – Split 12″ 2010

24th May 2010 at 8:57 am

Dead In The Woods/Diet Pills - Split 12" 2010

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Whilst the chest is the more geographically correct in the biological sense, for me a nice piece of vinyl and I’m instantly in love. In this case a limited edition translucent blue…

Dog Kicked In Half – Demo 2010

18th May 2010 at 8:54 am

Dog Kicked In Half - Demo 2010

Originality alert – there is more than a hint of sloppy and mischievous genius at work here. Manchester’s DKIH spew out three weighty tracks of festering arse-end filth on this, their demo offering. After giving it a few listens, I would definitely recommend this…

Sun Gods In Exile

Well God dam…put some Budweiser on ice, gun the throttle on the Mustang, wind down the windows and let’s kick up some dust on Route 666!!! If Sun Gods in Exile haven’t come up with the ultimate soundtrack to an irresponsibly fast ride down…

Iron Void ‘Spell Of Ruin’ CDEP 2010

14th May 2010 at 8:57 am

Iron Void

OK hands up who remembers Hellhound records? To refresh your memories they existed from the late 80’s to the mid 90’s and, after initially releasing a slew of hardcore albums, became the premier doom label of the era releasing classics such as Saint Vitus…

The:Egocentrics ‘Love Fear Choices And Astronauts’ CD 2010

13th May 2010 at 8:54 am

The:Egocentrics

Music very much accompanies a mood. There are times when Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” will touch a nerve and then other times when Slayer’s “Angel of Death” will induce a testosterone driven red mist of fury. How many times must boxers have entered…

Grifter ‘The Simplicity Of The Riff Is Key’ CDEP 2010

12th May 2010 at 9:03 am

Grifter

Ever since Grifter burst onto the scene back in 2004/2005 with a beer in hand, a roach in the ashtray and a handful of tunes designed to make girls boogie and dudes bang their heads, they have, at times unfairly, been pigeon-holed with the…

Bastard Of The Skies ‘Ichor! Ichor!’ CD 2010

10th May 2010 at 8:48 am

Bastard Of The Skies

Tentacles. I love ’em. Big fan of betentacled things here, so I knew I was onto a winner when I saw the packaging for this CD was festooned with the wiggly things. Add to that the fact that I had the good fortune to…

Drainland ‘And So Our Troubles Began’ 12″ 2010

9th May 2010 at 9:38 am

Drainland

If there’s one thing that Dublin-based chaosmongers Drainland know, it’s how to use the killing technology. In their case, they use it to smash your fucking face in. Channelling the likes of Cattlepress, Gasp, Playing Enemy and His Hero Is Gone and clearly in…

Kings Destroy ‘Old Yeller/Medusa’ 7″ 2010

7th May 2010 at 8:49 am

Kings Destroy

Brooklyn NY based behemoths Kings Destroy do themselves a bit of a disservice when they refer to themselves as a hybrid of stoner-rock and doom – this, my friends, is DOOM all the way! No trace of a recycled Kyuss or Fu Manchu riff…
