Wino ‘Live At Roadburn 2009’ CD/LP 2010

8th December 2010 at 8:50 am

Wino

That Scott “Wino” Weinrich is a legend is surely undisputable. What is more remarkable is that, approaching 50, his work rate seems to have increased dramatically and the quality of his output never seems to falter. Hot on the heels of his acoustic “Adrift”…

7th December 2010 at 9:03 am

OJM

There is an awful lot of stoner rock out there…an awful lot!!! So why should we bother with yet another stoner release. Well maybe, just maybe, there are some bands out there capable of adding something a little bit fresh and interesting to the…

33 – Demo 2010

30th November 2010 at 2:39 pm

33 - Demo 2010

For a new band, South Wales based bruisers 33 have some pedigree. Born out of the cream of local bands, 33 was conceived as a vehicle for nihilistic sing-along hardcore emulating the likes of Sheer Terror, Blood For Blood and Negative Approach. The band…

Locrian ‘The Crystal World’ CD/LP 2010

28th November 2010 at 9:01 am

Locrian

Time is a funny thing, it seems like only yesterday that I was enthusing wildly about Locrian’s second album, ‘Territories’, and now I’m clutching a copy of ‘The Crystal World’, their third full-length release, in my grubby paws and about to enthuse wildly again….

Lost Coves - S/T - CDEP 2010

After a protracted period of birthday celebrations, holidays, illness, more birthday inebriation, sleep depravation and a Monster Magnet show I finally felt I had achieved the correct mindset to embark on a psychedelic journey with trippy Brooklyn band Lost Coves. Consisting of members Dylan…

Danishmendt ‘Un Passé Aride’ CD 2010

21st November 2010 at 8:56 am

Danishmendt

France has been throwing up some verrrrrry interrrrestink extreme musick over the last few years, what with Deathspell Omega, Monarch!, Alcest, Amesoeurs, Gojira etc, and punishingly bleak, psychedelic-industrial-tinged sludgesters Danishmendt are yet another feather in the collective gallic cap.

Iron Witch - Demo 2010

Since Eyehategod came belching out of our speakers nearly 20 years with their thuggish take on Sabbath riffs, feedback and psychotic vocals there has been no shortage of bands vying for their crown. Liverpool’s Iron Witch are the latest to weigh in with some…

10th November 2010 at 9:04 am

Earth

Look, there’s no easy, tactful way to put this, so I’ll just come out with it. If you don’t own these recordings and you claim to be a fan of Drone, Sludge and/or Doom, then YOU, sir (or madam), are a raging Nigel FALSE…

5th November 2010 at 8:54 am

Sardonis - S/T - CD/LP 2010

Have you ever heard a sound so unrepentantly and monolithically dense it makes your head feel as though it’s in danger of bursting and your eyes feel like they will burst from their sockets in a shower of gore? This debut long player from…
