Toner Low Interview

29th January 2011 at 8:57 am

Toner Low

Toner Low have been at the very pinnacle of doom excellence for more than a decade and yet they only have two albums to show for their endeavours. Is the smoking of too much weed responsible for this lethargy or is it, as with…

28th January 2011 at 8:39 am

Coming from the depths of Atlanta Georgia, a place known for it’s more multicultural take on Southern style it is no wonder that Sons Of Tonatiuh mix up a heady brew of doom, sludge and crust that combines anvil heavy, slow, crushing riffs with…

26th January 2011 at 8:54 am

Lo-Pan

Small Stone Records have always been a trusted partner. For so many years now the Small Stone logo has been, not just a badge of quality but an assurance that you’re going to be getting your hands on some heavy duty fuzzed up stoner…

Rat King ‘Larva’ CD 2010

25th January 2011 at 8:51 am

Rat King

All the way from Chennai, India, Rat King is the twisted brain-wrong of Deepak Raghu and Murari Vasudevan and is quite a departure from the kind of thing we usually cover here at t’Shaman. You’ll find no trace of Stoner Rock, Sludge or Doom…

Thalamus ‘Sign Here For Nothing’ CDEP 2010

22nd January 2011 at 8:54 am

Thalamus

Now, if we were to judge a country by its musical output I would expect Sweden to be populated by heavily moustachioed long haired dudes in denim and super hot chicks in ass hugging flares and clingy t-shirts…and what an amazing place it would…

The Bendal Interlude – ST – CDEP 2010

17th January 2011 at 9:12 am

The Bendal Interlude - ST - CDEP 2010

After all, how often is it that you actually hear the tumbleweed imagery and the lethargic song structures of the desert-scene colliding with the scything riffery and spit-in-your-face vocal assault of thrash metal? However, in this particular instance,…

Ghoul Poon ‘Bastard Sorcerer’ CD / ‘100 Psychic Dreams’ DVD 2010

14th January 2011 at 8:44 am

Ghoul Poon

More often than not when writing a review, I try to live with a release for a while and let it sink in. Initial impressions can quickly give way to almost the opposite feeling after a while (I’d give examples but I fear promoting…

Double Space - ST - 12" 2010

Danish noise-rock wrecking crew Double Space give your ears a good ol’ fashioned 1-2 PUNCH on this self-titled 12”. Two tracks of heavy-ass rawkin’ sludge that should definitely appeal muchly to fans of the Melvins, Unsane, 16, Harvey Milk, High On Fire and Mastodon….
