Ufomammut ‘Eve’ CD/LP 2010

16th August 2010 at 8:55 am

Ufomammut

Low and heavy riffs repeated to meltdown and mad electronic space noises – a sure-fire recipe for sustained cranial orgasm. There is truly nothing out there in music land like this fabled Italian ensemble – Ufomammut are a heady sonic treasure that demand to…

Highgate ‘Shrines To The Warhead’ CD 2010

9th August 2010 at 8:48 am

Highgate

Four tracks of doomed out pure filth for your delectation, here, on the sophomore release from Kentucky-based trio Highgate. This time out it’s dirty, stinking DOOM all the way, as ‘Shrines To the Warhead’ is almost devoid of the Black metal influence that the…

Kuwahara ‘HoneyCult’ CD 2010

4th August 2010 at 8:54 am

Kuwahara

The sound-world of Kuwahara, a duo consisting of M.Peck and Mike Honeycutt, is one of grainy kaleidoscopic twilight murk shot through with fractured transmissions from some alien transmitter device. Dull bathyscaphic pulses shudder across arcing, shimmering feedback that subsides into eerie field recordings from…

Stone Axe

Imagine the scenario; at one stage all the greatest bands of the late 60’s and 70’s were struggling to catch a break…Free, Bad Company, AC/DC, Led Zep, The Faces, Kiss, Thin Lizzy…etc. One by one the Devil visits them and says “hey guys, you…
