As soon as ‘The Last Disease‘s’ first growling chord is played, its powerful enough to tear through the fabric of space itself, you know that this one is a winner. If brutal, crushing heaviness is your thing, then you can’t go wrong with Nightfell‘s…

21st June 2014 at 9:42 am


The Dutch formation Galg will be playing Incubate this year and that is all thanks to their excellent sounding dark doom. According to their bio they are happy people, just putting all negativity in their music. That negativity is a lot then, since the…

20th June 2014 at 10:29 am

Opium Warlords

When I read that this was a release featuring a former member of Reverend Bizarre, one of my favourite doom bands ever, I thought I knew what to expect. Rollicking doom anthems mixing with a sardonic wit and riffs the size of icebergs. I…

Funeral Horse

Made up of front man/guitarist Paul Bearer, bassist Jason Andy Argonauts and drummer Chris Larmour, Houston’s FUNERAL HORSE are offhand in their attitude to technical virtuosity.
