Abysmal Darkening ‘No Light Behind…’ CD 2011

21st July 2011 at 9:15 am

Abysmal Darkening

Loathe as I am to use the description, I really cannot think of a better example of ‘Blackened Doom’ than Abysmal Darkening. Rather than being a Black Metal band with slow bits, or a Doom Metal band with corpse-shrieking vocals, what Abysmal Darkening play…

Abysmal Darkening is a doom metal project from Tilburg with a particular blackened flavour. Earlier this year they released their second album after four years of waiting, titled Sub Terra. A dark and bewildering trip into darkness and depression and that was released by…

Acephalix

Hailing from San Francisco, Acephalix deliver their sophomore album for the ever prolific Southern Lord Records. Touting crust ridden, brutal death metal with a raw, old school production lends them a sound that sits somewhere between the aesthetics of classic Swedish death metal such…

Acephalix ‘Interminable Night’ CD 2011

20th June 2011 at 9:01 am

Acephalix

Looks like Greg Anderson has stopped washing and is hanging out in the park with a bottle of ‘Wild ‘n’ White’ and a Sunn amp on a rope, cuz Southern Lord has gone all-out raging crust with this latest batch of releases. While maybe…

Acid King ‘Middle Of Nowhere, Center Of Everywhere’ CD/LP/DD 2015

4th April 2015 at 8:07 am

Acid King

1999’s Busse Woods (Man’s Ruin) proved a pivotal release and milestone for Acid King founding members Lori S. (guitars/vocals) and Joey Osbourne (drums) – a graduated era less bent on praising the stoned Mansonisms of Ricky Kasso (the poster child and muse for cult…

23rd August 2010 at 8:56 am

Acid King

From their humble origins way back in 1993 in San Francisco, Acid King have, over the course of three albums and numerous splits and EPs, grown into one of the lumbering leading lights of the stoner doom scene, not just in the States but…

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. ‘IAO Chant From The Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out’ CD/LP 2012

26th October 2012 at 9:15 am

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.

This release marks what feels like the unstoppable Japanese juggernaut known as the Acid Mothers Temple’s millionth outing. With a discography as eclectic as it is prolific, there are few branches of heavy/”out there” music that guitar wizard Kawabato Makoto’s group of demented psych-warriors…

9th November 2011 at 8:53 am

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.

There are many uncertainties in life but you can always be sure that Acid Mothers Temple will continue to crank out album after album of claustrophobic, psycho-psychedelia from atop their Japanese mountain retreat, like crazed astronomers sending out distorted signals into the vast expanse…

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. / Anthroprophh – God Unknown Records Singles Club – 7″/DD 2014

17th November 2014 at 11:44 am

God Unknown Records - Singles Club

God Unknown’s singles club has gotten off to a fine start by anyone’s standards, but this second volume is certainly a doozy. While people naturally tag Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. as a predominately long-form band, at their best when they…
