Dälek ‘Asphalt For Eden’ CD/LP/DD 2016

18th May 2016 at 6:53 pm

Dälek

Congratulations, you might be reading the very first review of a hip-hop album on The Sleeping Shaman. We can’t help it, we dig the sound of Dälek, because it rocks harder than many bands with guitars. Let’s check out their latest effort titled Asphalt…

Daniel Menche ‘Vilke’ LP/CS + DVD 2013

30th June 2013 at 12:29 pm

Daniel Menche

It’s as exhausting sometimes to listen to the work of Daniel Mench as it is to keep up with his sizeable discography. The rewards for achieving either are plentiful however. I’m hard pushed to think of another artist currently working in the general area…

Danishmendt ‘Un Passé Aride’ CD 2010

21st November 2010 at 8:56 am

Danishmendt

France has been throwing up some verrrrrry interrrrestink extreme musick over the last few years, what with Deathspell Omega, Monarch!, Alcest, Amesoeurs, Gojira etc, and punishingly bleak, psychedelic-industrial-tinged sludgesters Danishmendt are yet another feather in the collective gallic cap. Try to imagine an up-tempo…

Dark Buddha Rising ‘Inversum’ CD/LP/DD 2015

20th September 2015 at 4:03 pm

Dark Buddha Rising

Despite housing members from the likes of Hexvessel, Atomikylä, Darkempire and Mother Susurrus and having an output of six albums spanning a career of eight years, Finland’s Dark Buddha Rising only gained any kind of credible recognition in 2013 following the release of Dakhmandal….

Darsombra ‘Climax Community’ CD/LP/DD 2012

20th September 2012 at 8:27 am

Darsombra ‘Climax Community’ CD/LP/DD 2012

With a unique sonic blueprint that is equal parts experimental, psychedelia, krautrock and drone, Darsombra achieve the sheer transcendence and intensity that most drone acts can only dream of with an enviable effortlessness. Though Darsombra as an entity is an audiovisual collaboration with visual…

Davie Allan / Joel Grind – Split – 10″/CD/DD 2016

16th May 2016 at 7:21 pm

Davie Allan / Joel Grind - Split

“Of course it does, hahaha!”. This is my first thought when Davie Allan’s new jam, Recycled Too crunches in with motorcycles blasting and a big fat, snarling, fuzzed out riff. It’s been this way for 50 years, why bother changing that shit now? It…

DEAD ‘Idiots’ LP/DD 2012

27th March 2013 at 9:51 am

DEAD

The spirit of the late, great God Head Silo is apparently alive and well and living in in Australia, reincarnated seemingly in the bass and drums noise rock pummel of DEAD. The ghost of that underrated duo is there a lot of the time,…

Dead Existence ‘Born Into The Planet’s Scars’ CD 2011

25th November 2011 at 10:10 am

Dead Existence

As crusty as a tramp’s cold dead arse, but twice as foul – nay, thrice, this nasty little ep is a certified antidote for the power of positive thought. Dead Existence is an alluringly bleak and charred ultra-punk name as if from the 1980s….

Dead Existence ‘Endless Misery’ LP/CS/DD 2015

19th August 2015 at 7:46 pm

Dead Existence

London’s Dead Existence were a staple of the UK sludge / doom scene since their inception way back in the murky mists of 2004. After over a decade of breaking faces and dragging riffs from the very bowels of the earth, the five piece…

Dead Fader ‘Blood Forest’ LP/DD 2014

21st May 2014 at 10:06 am

Dead Fader

Though not the sort of thing normally seen gracing the hallowed pages of The Sleeping Shaman, Dead Fader‘s ‘Blood Forest‘ is an interesting experiment in electronic music. One half of a two-album release (the other being ‘Scorched’), it is overwhelmingly disorientating. Dizzying sounds, weird…
