4th November 2014 at 10:27 am

Baptists

Canadian crust punk/hardcore bludgeoners Baptists are releasing their newest record, Bloodmines, on Southern Lord and it’s being produced by Kurt Ballou. I don’t really need to tell you what this sounds like do I? But I’m going to, because it’s my job, and not…

Barbarian Fist – Demo 2013

17th November 2013 at 10:16 am

Barbarian Fist - Demo 2013

I will be the first to admit that I can be rather shallow and one dimensional when I want to be. As much as I try not to be, I find myself more and more being one of those ‘I know what I like,…

Bardo Pond ‘Yntra’ (Latitudes Session) CD/LP 2012

After eight full-length albums, the psych-rock troupe known as Bardo Pond delivers another great befuddled head feast of a (mini) album for you to ponder, grin, panic and dribble over. This three-track release is part of Southern imprint’s Latitudes, which only releases recordings made…

Barn Owl ‘V’ CD/LP 2013

4th March 2013 at 9:41 am

Barn Owl

Barn Owl, have, over the process of a few albums, mutated from an organically spiritual drone machine, beloved of more contemplative weedians, into something which could be called ‘dark ambient’ although that label might be fraught with associations of formless, pointless background music. For…

Baron Greenback – S/T – CD/DD 2014

15th July 2014 at 9:41 am

Baron Greenback - S/T

What do you get if you combine the experimental, afraid-of-nothing jammage of Baroness, the stoneristic, metallic stylings of Greenleaf and the, errr, boogie-swinging righteousness of ZZ Top’s ‘Doubleback’? OK, so if that link is simply too tenuous for you to comprehend then whack the…

Baroness ‘Live At Maida Vale BBC’ 12″/DD 2013

19th August 2013 at 10:05 am

Baroness

Here’s a little secret for you: Baroness are bloody brilliant. Whether it was that split with Unpersons or their trio of colour-themed records, the gorgeous Georgians have barely put a chord wrong. Unless you’re the curmudgeon sort, you can appreciate just what a streamlined…

Baroness

Yellow & Green, the double-album from Savannah, Georgia sludge band Baroness, is already one of the most talked-about records of the year. It’s barely been out a week but it’s already dividing opinion left and right with some people praising it as a progression…

Barrabus – S/T – 2017

5th July 2017 at 3:02 pm

Barrabus - S/T

Gather round, children, and I’ll tell you a tale. The year was 2007, the weather was British and there were fell voices in the air. SikTh, those technical metal titans, were saying goodbye after just two excellent albums, and I realised that I had…

Bast

It’s been a long time coming for Kingston-based black metal/doom band Bast, but this year finally marks the arrival of their long overdue debut album ‘Spectres‘. Originally formed as a two-piece back in 2008, Bast have been a sporadic but always welcome presence in…

Bastard Of The Skies ‘Ichor! Ichor!’ CD 2010

10th May 2010 at 8:48 am

Bastard Of The Skies

Tentacles. I love ’em. Big fan of betentacled things here, so I knew I was onto a winner when I saw the packaging for this CD was festooned with the wiggly things. Add to that the fact that I had the good fortune to…
