Electric Red ‘In This Machine’ CD 2010

28th August 2010 at 9:06 am

Electric Red

When Electric Red came under my radar in early 2009 with a three track demo, “Ion” claiming to have recorded it themselves and to only have been a going concern as a band for 6 months I thought they were basically bullshitting to big…

Omega Massif ‘Geisterstadt’ LP/CD 2010

27th August 2010 at 8:53 am

Omega Massif

Do you remember when you first heard the track ‘Mammoth’ by Pelican? You know, the first track on their first EP? The track that was so aptly named, because when you listened to it you could clearly imagine a herd of hoofing-great Wooly Mammoths…

Beehoover ‘Concrete Catalyst’ CD 2010

26th August 2010 at 9:58 am

Beehoover

Hailing from Germany, this Teutonic duo of Ingmar Petersen (bass and vocals) and Claus-Peter Hamisch (drums and vocals) deal in far out experimental drum and bass and by that I don’t mean the repetitive washing machine on a spin cycle dance music variety. I…

All Time High ‘Friends In High Places’ CD 2010

25th August 2010 at 9:04 am

All Time High

So, with a name like All Time High and coming from the Small Stone stable I was expecting a bunch of pot-bellied, heavily bearded backwoods throwbacks raping the shit out of a bunch of Big Muff pedals and extolling the virtues of pretty much…

Cult Of Whores And Dogs ‘Brass Knuckle Bondage And Morgue Rules’ CDEP 2010

24th August 2010 at 2:26 pm

Cult Of Whores And Dogs

When the first recorded efforts from Cult Of Whores and Dogs landed last year it was a vicious and uncompromising slice of industrial hardcore meets thrash that showed a lot of promise under its grimy production. Back then the whole thing had been assembled…

Acid King ‘The Early Years’ CD 2010

23rd August 2010 at 8:56 am

Acid King

From their humble origins way back in 1993 in San Francisco, Acid King have, over the course of three albums and numerous splits and EPs, grown into one of the lumbering leading lights of the stoner doom scene, not just in the States but…

Neurosis ‘Enemy Of The Sun’ Reissue CD 2010

21st August 2010 at 9:06 am

Neurosis

Reissues can often provide a sober pause to reflect on an album that may have been unnecessarily gushed over or scorned upon its release and gives a potentially fresh audience another chance to rediscover a back catalogue gem from a band who have been…

Black Sleep Of Kali ‘Our Slow Decay’ CD 2010

20th August 2010 at 9:22 am

Black Sleep Of Kali

Small Stone Recordings are a bit like a good and trusted friend for the most part; you know you can rely on them to deliver some quality kick ass rock and roll that have you shaking your bootie and chugging back the beers with…

Lords Of Bukkake ‘Desorden Y Rencor’ CD 2010

19th August 2010 at 8:51 am

Lords Of Bukkake

Wilfully nasty sludge from genuine Spaniards, as opposed to strange Japanese men who sing in spanish, here on the unpleasantly-named Lords Of Bukkake’s sophomore release, and their first for Israeli label of repute Totalrust Music – a label that knows quality doom when they…

Solace ‘A.D.’ CD/LP 2010

18th August 2010 at 8:59 am

Solace

Solace must have wondered if this album would ever see the light of day. It’s been 7 years since their last full length offering “13” with only a handful of split releases and EPs to remind us they still exist. Beset by all manner…
