Morkobot / Ithaca / Divorcee / Neuroharp / Moodhoover @ The Green Door Store, Brighton 10/08/2014

Goat ‘Commune’ CD/LP/DD 2014

Goat

In most senses of the word, Goat are no longer a band – they are a phenomenon. The anonymous collective made a name for themselves with tales of Swedish voodoo origins, a diverse sound that absorbed Fela Kuti, Hawkwind and Curtis Mayfield, amongst many…

29th September 2014 at 9:44 am

Armageddoom II 2014

A long festival, especially after you’ve gotten up at 4am, worked all day etc. is not always the best of things. Armageddoom, however, was one of the best of things. I didn’t see every band – I had pints to see, friends to ..drink?…

Alunah ‘Awakening The Forest’ CD/LP/DD 2014

29th September 2014 at 9:38 am

Alunah

Birmingham born n’ bred four-piece Alunah are nothing if not consistent. Playing doom in its purist form is not an easy thing to do when based out of the Midlands: that smoky, solemn, industry-ravaged community that spawned (amongst others) Black Sabbath, Godflesh, Napalm Death,…

Amulet

Since the arrival of their none more denim Cut The Crap demo in late 2011, London’s Amulet have made quite a name for themselves with their no nonsense take on heavy metal. Supporting everyone from Angel Witch to The Sword demonstrated the broad appeal…

Hashbreath ‘Hypnotic Voodoo Rythm’ CS/DD 2014

27th September 2014 at 12:34 pm

Hashbreath

OK, so there’s two ways this could go. It is either going to be some serious stoner doom riffs, hails to the mighty weed and all of the mind expanding qualities that it may bring, or it is going to be a record of…
