Beehoover ‘Concrete Catalyst’ CD 2010

26th August 2010 at 9:58 am

Beehoover

Hailing from Germany, this Teutonic duo of Ingmar Petersen (bass and vocals) and Claus-Peter Hamisch (drums and vocals) deal in far out experimental drum and bass and by that I don’t mean the repetitive washing machine on a spin cycle dance music variety. I…

Beehoover ‘Heavy Zooo’ CD 2008

30th January 2009 at 9:14 am

Beehoover

Ah you just have to love those crazy Germans!!! It’s often been said that the Germans don’t have a sense of humour. This is simply not true, they have a very keenly defined sense of humour…it’s just not shared by the rest of the…

Beehoover ‘Primitive Powers’ CD/LP/DD 2016

17th February 2016 at 7:04 pm

Beehoover

German duo Beehoover manage to tread the line between ‘immediately inaccessible’ and ‘wilfully alienating’ so well that they render the division meaningless. Their punchy slices of Krautrock and psychedelia-laced stoner-metal contain numerous identifiable chunks of influence, but a certain something so wholly individual that…

Beehoover ‘The Devil And His Footmen’ CD/LP/DD

9th September 2013 at 12:27 pm

Beehoover

The almighty Beehoover’s music and I go way back. Well, time moves quite slowly for me, so even five years seems like an eternity…so, like I said, Beehoover and I go way back…. I first heard Beehoover’s Heavy Zoo album back when MySpace was…

Beg – S/T – LP/DD 2014

2nd August 2014 at 10:03 am

Beg - S/T

Featuring Grief from London-based filth-mongerers Art Of Burning Water on guitar and Elliot Smith from like-minded grinders The Afternoon Gentlemen on drums, Beg excel in the kind of power-violence oriented grind that hits as quickly and accurately as drive-bys. With fifteen short, brutal slabs…

Bellringer ‘Wait’ 2014 DD

29th January 2015 at 8:25 pm

Bellringer

Diiiiiiing-DONG! Texas shitkickers Bellringer totally deliver the goods on this here debut EP, saying what they need to say succinctly in but four songs whilst simultaneously covering a healthy amount of stylistic ground and leaving me salivating for more, but then you’d expect no…

Belong ‘Common Era’ CD/LP 2011

15th March 2011 at 8:52 am

Belong

I’m a great admirer of Belong’s first record, 2006’s beautifully woozy, out-of-focus ‘October Language’, so, having missed out on the two limited 12″s they released in the meantime, I was very keen indeed to hear some new sounds from Messrs. Turk Dietrich and Michael…

Berserkowitz ‘Gritfarm’ CDEP 2008

18th September 2008 at 9:09 am

Berserkowitz

Let’s face it sludge fans, if these lot were from the States there’d be far more of a buzz about them. It just so happens that they’re from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, NOT New Orleans, Louisiana. And they’re much fuckin’ cooler for it. So say…

Bevar Sea – S/T – CD/DD 2012

31st March 2013 at 8:17 am

Bevar Sea - S/T

These days heavy metal is a fully-fledged global phenomenon and I don’t know about everyone else, but I think that’s simply a fantastic thing in its own right. The very fact that acts like Bevar Sea – Bangalore, India’s premier exporters of an authentic…

Biche – S/T – CD/DD 2013

2nd March 2014 at 9:59 am

Biche - S/T

Biche are a French duo that play filthy, bleak sludge doom. This sentence alone excites me because I find that France is the place where you can find some REALLY excellent and unique metal bands (Deathspell Omega and Gojira being the most high profile…
