Wizard’s Beard ‘Pure Filth’ CD 2011

31st March 2011 at 8:59 am

Wizard

Hailing from the mighty Leeds, Wizard’s Beard are a vile blast of sludge/doom metal that makes being a fan of underground music so delicious. On their website they proudly state that they exist to ‘play slow horrible riffs and create a hell of a…

30th March 2011 at 9:04 am

Neurosis

Another year and another boundary breaking landmark to celebrate from Oakland’s darkest sons, this time it’s the almost 20 year anniversary of what is often wrongly viewed as their first album proper, ‘Souls At Zero’. Taken from a chapter in ‘The Great & Secret…

413 ‘Path To Hocma’ CD 2010

29th March 2011 at 8:49 am

413

Not 666 or 999 or 123. These Iberian noiseniks have chosen 413. Could it be the international dialling code for Spain? (It’s not – I checked and it’s +34). Or maybe it’s the number of strings broken by the guitarist in the last two…

Crumbling Ghost - ST - CD 2011

This is a band that has existed for a couple of years and over this period of time have grown in strength, confidence and appeal. Their first gig was an enviable affair for many kraut-rock acolytes when they were invited to be the backing…

Archon

Hailing from Brooklyn NY, home of heavy brethren Batillus and the mighty Hull, Archon are an earth-moving beast of serious burden. Spawned from the mind of Andrew Jude, ex-of the criminally underappreciated Agnosis, Archon DEMAND attention. Drums, bass, guitars and vocals are used as…

Enos ‘Chapter 1’ CDEP 2010

25th March 2011 at 8:55 am

Enos

Where most stoner bands regale their listeners with tales of drunken debauchery, fast cars, drug exploits…etc, Brighton’s Enos emerge with a totally different concept. Enos was a chimpanzee that in 1961 was launched into space as the first animal to complete an orbit of…

Axxonn ‘Lets Get It Straight’ CD 2011

24th March 2011 at 9:01 am

Axxonn

Axxonn is Brisbane-based sound artist Tom Hall, and not to be confused with the Axons, a race of tentacle-bedecked alien beasties disguised as golden-skinned humanoids who menaced Doctor Who during the Jon Pertwee years. An easy mistake to make, but I’m glad we nipped…

Coffin On Tyres ‘Red’ CD 2010

22nd March 2011 at 9:02 am

Coffin On Tyres

There is something very appealing about French rock bands. Though many of them fail to make the dent they often so richly deserve on the global rock market, they are often the equal of many of their UK or American counterparts and frequently display…

Burger World – ST – CDEP 2011

19th March 2011 at 8:44 am

Burger World - ST - CDEP 2011

There is a certain charm about truly underground music; Nothing captures the feel of rock and roll quite like watching a band in a darkened, scuzzy, beer smelling dive of a bar and Burger World are the epitome of this ethic on their four…
