Year Of The Flood ‘Redefine The Natural Order’ CDEP 2010

12th October 2010 at 9:12 am

Year Of The Flood

Year of the Flood’s debut EP, “A Utopian View” was a vicious slice of brutal, scything riffs and throat shredding vocal insanity that impressed me on every level. No sooner have the final notes of that putrid noise decayed and we’re hit with a…

Honcho ‘Battle Of Wits’ CD 2010

7th October 2010 at 9:06 am

So this latest offering from Norwegians Honcho landed and I prepared myself for yet another ride through some run-of-the-mill Scandinavian stoner rock. You know the type of thing; Big Muff pedals cranking out a bunch of faceless fuzzy riffs, Sabbath/Fu Manchu rip off beats…blah…

Pombagira ‘Baron Citadel’ CD 2010

5th October 2010 at 9:22 am


The tall, skeletal and immaculately dressed visage of the Vodou loa Baron Samedi leers out from the front cover of this, the third album from Ur-Doom duo Pombagira, leaning over what may be the figure of Maman Brigitte, his otherworldly wife. Their presence here,…

1st October 2010 at 9:04 am


For a start Astrovan have a big beardy tattooed singer called Deezer and a guitarist called Big Zeke. That alone makes them extremely cool!!! Unfortunately their bio does make a point to mention that they opened for Nickelback and Papa Roach in their hometown…
