The band Lychgate from London, grew out of Archaicus, which was active untill 2012. In 2015 the follow-up to 2012’s self-titled debut comes out in a fog of mystery, titled An Antidote For The Glass Pill. The Brits have made an album that can…

Temples Festival 2015 – Day 3 Review By Dave Bowes

15th July 2015 at 7:42 pm

Temples Festival - 2015

We all knew it was going to happen. Arriving at the venue to find that stage times have been pushed back by an hour, rumours abound about the long-lasting effects of Sunn O)))’s ritual devastation last night. They killed the soundboard; nine people ended…

Charybdis – Demo – CD/DD 2015

15th July 2015 at 7:37 pm

Charybdis - Demo - 2015

Some musicians are content to play out their entire careers with one band, or even just as a solo project. Others of course are greedy band hoarders – playing in four at a time, practising eighteen times a week and eventually metamorphosing each into…

Temples Festival 2015 – Day 2 Review By Dave Bowes

14th July 2015 at 6:51 pm

Temples Festival - 2015

Breakfast is sorted, the sun’s about as out as it’s ever going to be and the local beer and cider have been flowing heavily, to the extent that extra supplies are brought in to cope with punters essentially drinking the place dry. Also, it’s…

Bong ‘We Are, We Were And We Will Have Been’ CD/LP/DD 2015

14th July 2015 at 6:45 pm

Bong

Because I’m lazy and I live in Amsterdam, writing this review took a little longer than planned. That’s absolutely no worry though, as I can now read all the other reviews and see what ‘they’ are saying. This gives me the distinct advantage of…

Temples Festival 2015 – Day 1 Review By Dave Bowes

13th July 2015 at 6:56 pm

Temples Festival - 2015

As far as I can tell, there are two types of festival people. There are the rare few who’ll have their hotels and flights booked as soon as the dates are announced and then there are the ones who’ll at least wait on the…

Death Alley ‘Black Magick Boogieland’ CD/LP/DD 2015

13th July 2015 at 6:48 pm

Death Alley

The phrase “death alley” in itself certainly has some pedigree. Sure, a cheeky little bit of Googling will tell you first it’s a more than notorious moniker for a particularly shooty-shooty neighbourhood in LA, but it’s also the title of the sixth album from…

Kings Destroy – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2015

12th July 2015 at 1:37 pm

Kings Destroy - S/T

Kings Destroy by Kings Destroy sounds a lot like a junior varsity Monster Magnet. I like Monster Magnet. Therefore, it would naturally follow that I like Kings Destroy. True. However, whereas Monster Magnet have proven themselves (to me) through their distinct innovations, Kings Destroy,…

KEN mode ‘Success’ CD/LP/DD 2015

11th July 2015 at 3:00 pm

KEN mode

Manitoban misfits KEN mode have always defied what is expected of them. The word ‘unique’ is bandied about in relation to myriads of other artists and albums, but the three piece from Winnipeg have always trod their own path and created a sound that…
