BongCauldron

Since their formation in 2011, BongCauldron have developed a reputation on the local Leeds metal scene as a sleeping colossus. A beast that only ever awakens from its slumber when called upon to thrash out a cacophonous amalgamation of torturous sludge metal, old school…

Samsara Blue Experiement - London 15/11/2013

Some of the most memorable moments I’ve had at gigs have been due to technical blunders. Whether it was a guitar amp literally exploding at a Trivium gig (we were all young once, OK?) or hilarious microphone failure while watching Anathema, I’ve had more…

Mutoid Man ‘Helium Head’ CD/LP 2013

3rd December 2013 at 11:13 am

Mutoid Man

FUCKING HELL! Mutoid Man?! Helium Head?! Let me start by saying fans of ‘heavy’ will already know tonnes about this band, without ever having heard them. Drummer Ben Koller has been hammering your brain out in hardcore heroes Converge, producing classics like Jane Doe…

Wooden Shjips ‘Back To Land’ CD/LP/DD 2013

3rd December 2013 at 11:08 am

Wooden Shjips

Back To Land, the fourth album from San Francisco-based psychedelic rock quartet Wooden Shjips is, unfortunately, a frustratingly pedestrian affair. Listening back to their 2007 Holy Mountain debut and Dos, you can hear that the band’s formula hasn’t changed much over the years, but…

Coltsblood / Crypt Lurker – Split CS 2013

2nd December 2013 at 1:27 pm

Coltsblood / Crypt Lurker - Split

Filth, filth, filth. Late seventies NWOBHM ruffians Tank may have recorded a song and album named Filth Hounds Of Hades, but, lemme tell you that title should really go to Liverpool’s most disgusting doom-merchants Coltsblood and Crypt Lurker, the mucky, mucky pups. Part of…
