Dreadnought ‘Bridging Realms’ CD/LP/DD 2015

21st October 2015 at 7:06 pm

Dreadnought

Some bands fail to stand out, while others immediately seem to have something special. As you can probably tell if you are familiar with them, Dreadnought, from Colorado, never really stick with one genre and their songs are a chaotic rollercoaster ride. However, does…

Ufomammut / Coltsblood @ Soup Kitchen, Manchester 08/10/2015

19th October 2015 at 7:16 pm

Ufomammut @ Soup Kitchen, Manchester 08/10/2015

From experience, Manchester’s Northern Quarter is a frustrating combination of the genuinely odd and creative as well as the leeches who just want to soak it up because their record collection sounds cooler if you don’t know how to pronounce the band names. Soup…

Gold ‘No Image’ CD/LP/DD 2015

19th October 2015 at 7:10 pm

Gold

Gold hail from The Netherlands and have deep roots in the national scene, with ex-members of The Devil’s Blood, Madball, Born From Pain and Malkovich in their ranks, their resulting sound is surprisingly free of hardcore elements. What remains is a hint of The…

17th October 2015 at 1:30 pm

Ahab

We at the Sleeping Shaman like ourselves a nice slice of doom now and then and who better to provide some of the thickest and most salty slices of it than Germany’s Ahab. The nautical doom pioneers have a new album in store for…

Ufomammut / Jex Thoth @ Islington Academy, London 09/10/2015

17th October 2015 at 1:22 pm

Ufomammut @ Islington Academy, London 09/10/2015

From the moment I step inside the Islington Academy, its clear that Jex Thoth’s live show is all about the atmosphere. As the band’s gear gradually takes shape around the stage, gothic candles flicker and the heavy scent of burning sandalwood fills the room,…

Corrections House ‘Know How To Carry A Whip’ CD/LP/DD 2015

11th October 2015 at 3:35 pm

Corrections House

In 2013 my favourite record was the Corrections House debut, a garbled ‘news from the front’ type collision of the organic despair of modern era Neurosis folk, the cold digital loops and beats of Sanford Parker (Minsk), a mechanised clash that would do prime…
