Cauldron Black Ram ‘Stalagmire’ CD/LP/DD 2014

16th March 2014 at 10:55 am

Cauldron Black Ram

For those who have spent any extended time at sea (myself included), the prospect of a nautical burial, while intriguing, is one of the most disconcerting realities imaginable. Couple that with spending the final days leading up to your death in the throes of…

Celebrity Love Crisis – Demo 2008

14th November 2008 at 12:57 pm

Celebrity Love Crisis - Demo 2008

I’m a big fan of album packaging. Growing up in the 80’s before the CD boom vinyl packaging was part of the thrill of buying an album. I’m so chuffed to see a band turning the CD format on its head to create an…

Celeste

To play black metal in today’s environment with so many subgenres, not even the dark one himself can keep up with them all and still stand out and have an original sounding idea while at the same time, making a name for themselves is…

Celeste

King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp once described attempting to play atop his early ’70’s rhythm section, John Wetton and Bill Bruford, as akin to “playing with a flying brick wall”, and advised any player coming into contact with it to “go with it or…

Charger ‘Disgust At The Status Quo’ CDEP 2009

3rd December 2009 at 9:14 am

Charger

Set the controls, for the arse of a nun…four grizzled pottery heads with a pulsating predilection for the barbaric beauty of doomed out glue-headed punk and savage burned-out eye socket death metal grindcore warp spasm brain surgery. Yeah, that’s right, warlords of woe Charger…

Charybdis – Demo – CD/DD 2015

15th July 2015 at 7:37 pm

Charybdis - Demo - 2015

Some musicians are content to play out their entire careers with one band, or even just as a solo project. Others of course are greedy band hoarders – playing in four at a time, practising eighteen times a week and eventually metamorphosing each into…

Chelsea Wolfe

For months now Chelsea Wolfe has been teasing fans one track at a time about what to expect on her fifth full-length album Abyss. If Iron Moon and Carrion Flowers were anything to go by, it was obvious she’d discovered the gain knob on…

Chelsea Wolfe ‘Prayer For The Unborn’ (Latitudes Session) LP/CD 2012

23rd November 2012 at 9:29 am

Chelsea Wolfe

In a music scene overcrowded with distinctly average singer-songwriters, California native Chelsea Wolfe has emerged over the last couple of years as a potent vocalist and guitarist enshrouded in tape hiss and an eerie visual narrative. Her brooding sound has seamlessly drawn on folk,…

28th December 2011 at 11:58 am

Chelsea Wolfe

I first came across the name of Chelsea Wolfe upon its addition to the already jaw-dropping lineup for Roadburn Festival 2012. The Roadburn team have been a continuous source of great music when I go hunting for new stuff, and their tastes are as…

1st October 2012 at 8:29 am

Chelsea Wolfe ‘Live at Roadburn 2012’ LP 2012

When Wovenhand took to the stage at Roadburn 2011 the general consensus was that they brought down one of the heaviest sets of that weekend – they weren’t necessarily the loudest bands to play, but they were the one of the heaviest. You’ve got…
