Bastard Of The Skies

What’s that in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No….it’s Blackburn’s finest musical export, Bastard Of The Skies, back for the attack after 2010’s rather exceptional Ichor! Ichor! and in full-on fine fighting fettle. Scorching, paint-peeling guitars, seismic bass, pounding…

Battalions ‘Nothing To Lose’ DD 2015

29th November 2015 at 3:26 pm

Battalions

Heavy sludge from the wastelands of Hull, if that doesn’t sound depressive to you, then I don’t know what will get you down. You probably listen to the wrong kind of music, but that’s another matter. We’re talking here about Battallions (from Hull) who…

Beastmaker

Everyone loves a cheeky seven incher or two, right? We know our favourite vinyl-junkie friends at Rise Above certainly do, especially when there’s a brand new, yet sepia photo-ed, amp-cackling, groove-riding band to go with it and in Fresno, California’s Beastmaker, they’ve found just…

Beastwars - S/T - LP/DD 2012

Thee olde spirits of thee mightee Kyuss have travelled far since the Californian desert rock trailblazers called it a day back in 1995, spawning thousands of bands in the wake of their hazy, yet powerful riffs with vocals yearning for distant escape. New Zealand’s…
