Iron Witch - Demo 2011

Fragment ‘Home’ CD 2011

27th June 2011 at 8:59 am

Fragment

Fragment is the kind of artist that music journalists hate to have to review because with almost no information available on the musician behind the music we are forced to disregard pseudo-important factoids or irrelevant context and actually write about the music. What we…

Alpinist ‘Lichtlærm/Minus.Mensch’ CD 2011

26th June 2011 at 9:14 am

Alpinist

German quartet Alpinist are the next blunt instrument to be wielded in Southern Lord’s campaign for crust domination, along with necro-crusters Acephalix, Black Breath, and Summon The Crows. With nary a death-grunt in earshot and a distinct lack of tremolo picking, Alpinist sit more…

24th June 2011 at 8:55 am

Hittegods

Hmm…ah…um…ok…this is awkward!!!! When a band seem so in love with rock and roll and claim AC/DC as an influence I’ll pretty much throw myself fully behind them…there’s nothing I love more than a filthy slice of down home, shit kicking rock and roll….

Etherial Riffian ‘Shaman’s Visions’ CD 2011

22nd June 2011 at 9:07 am

EtherialRiffian-ShamansVisions

Acephalix

Looks like Greg Anderson has stopped washing and is hanging out in the park with a bottle of ‘Wild ‘n’ White’ and a Sunn amp on a rope, cuz Southern Lord has gone all-out raging crust with this latest batch of releases. While maybe…
