This year saw the release of the excellent ‘Drone Machines’ album by Author & Punisher, being not only a fantastically modern piece of industrial drone metal, it also features some of the most unique ways of creating and manipulating sound that have been pioneered…

Del Rey ‘Immemorial’ CD/LP 2010

27th October 2010 at 9:14 am

Del Rey

Del Rey. The name makes me think of 50s throwback greaser bands for some reason. No idea why. Probably because of that band The Bellrays. Anyway, THAT is absolutely NOT what Del Rey are all about. Uh-uh. No sir. Del Rey are a five-piece…

Heirs ‘Fowl’ CD/LP 2010

25th October 2010 at 8:48 am

Heirs

The age old adage is to never judge a book by its cover, I mean what if it’s a hardback or the publishing house skimped on the artwork budget? Looking at the digipack of the latest Heirs offering you would be forgiven for thinking,…

Rose Kemp ‘Golden Shroud’ CD 2010

22nd October 2010 at 9:17 am

Rose Kemp

One listen to Rose Kemp’s new album and you get the distinct impression that she isn’t like other women. At school I can vividly imagine that, while other girls were busy discussing their hair and clothes and desperately attempting to attract the attention of…

MONE¥I$GOD ‘M.A.R.K.Z’ CD 2010

21st October 2010 at 9:02 am

MONE¥I$GOD

There’s something about Japanese music, a sense of ‘otherness’ that sets it apart from western music, whether it’s in their approach, or whether they’re just a nation of weirdoes, I have no idea. I once saw an interview with Boredoms front-thing Yamatsuka/Yamataka Eye in…

Dopefight

Three things you need to know about Dopefight 1) They’re a 3 piece stoner sludge outfit from Brighton 2) They like…no, they LOVE weed!!! 3) They’re fucking awesome!!!! The first thing that strikes you about the release is the packaging. Aside from a narrow…

Gospel Of The Future ‘The Eclipse’ CD 2010

18th October 2010 at 9:26 am

Gospel Of The Future

This record had me worried to begin with. Worried that the fractured, sinister and mysterious droning feedback of opener ‘The Eclipse Pt.1’ would continue for a further 35 minutes, without giving way to the indulgence of the mega-riffing culmination I had been waiting to…

Obiat ‘Eye Tree Pi’ CD 2009

16th October 2010 at 4:52 pm

Obiat

I freely admit, before getting into the meat of this review, that I had previously written Obiat off as one of ‘those’ London-based bands. Y’know, the eternal London support bands such as Breed 77, End Of Level Boss and the like who seem to…

Jackal-Headed Guard Of The Dead ‘The Sky Has Been Riven And Our Flesh Has Been Rent’ CDEP 2010

13th October 2010 at 9:08 am

Jackal-Headed Guard Of The Dead

Edinburgh’s wickedly monikered Jackal-Headed Guard of The Dead play instrumental sludge/doom that’s heavily inspired by H.P Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. Admiration must immediately be bestowed upon the title of this release and the song titles, with ‘The Howling Teeth of Space’ instantly bringing Lovecraftian dread…
