E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr ‘Spiralo’ LP/DD 2014

30th April 2014 at 9:59 am

E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr

The six letters, one hyphen combo ‘E-musik’ makes me instantly think of Neu! The fifth track on their legendary Neu! 75 album, ‘E-musik’ stood for ‘ernste Musik’ (earnest music), and one can only imagine whether they were taking the piss or being deadly serious…

Ea ‘A Etilla’ CD/DD 2014

26th January 2014 at 10:44 am

Ea

Funeral doom is a very small subgenre when it comes to metal and not many good and dedicated bands last. This subgenre was in fact the one that drove me to the slow and heavy kind of music more than fast and brutal as…

Eagle Twin ‘The Feather Tipped the Serpent’s Scale’ CD/LP/DD 2012

22nd August 2012 at 8:34 am

Eagle Twin ‘The Feather Tipped the Serpent

As far as religious texts go, the Old Testament is pretty fucking badass. Regardless of your religious standing it’s hard to deny that the book is filled with all kinds of biblical badassery – fire and brimstone, and pestilence, smiting and various other forms…

Earth ‘A Bureaucratic Desire For Extra-Capsular Extraction’ CD/LP 2010

10th November 2010 at 9:04 am

Earth

Look, there’s no easy, tactful way to put this, so I’ll just come out with it. If you don’t own these recordings and you claim to be a fan of Drone, Sludge and/or Doom, then YOU, sir (or madam), are a raging Nigel FALSE…

Earth ‘Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light I’ CD/LP 2011

21st February 2011 at 9:01 am

Earth

Look. Before I write any further I want to go on record as being a ‘fan’ of Earth. I’ve genuinely enjoyed their music and followed their evolution with interest and enthusiasm over the years. When they dropped so much of the out and out…

Earth ‘Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II’ CD/LP 2012

12th January 2012 at 8:16 am

Earth

Let’s start by stating the obvious: Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II is a world away from Earth’s pivotal album Earth 2; we are, after all, experiencing the second-coming of Earth. However this new incarnation shares many similarities with the version of the…

Earth ‘Primitive And Deadly’ CD/LP/DD 2014

5th September 2014 at 10:29 am

Earth

Earth’s post-reformation output has been widely praised; while the band laid dormant between the mid-nineties and mid-2000s, the likes of Sunn O))) and Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine did much to help build a wider appreciation for Earth, allowing them to enjoy the…

Earthen Grave – S/T – CD 2012

10th December 2012 at 9:36 am

Earthen Grave - S/T - CD 2012

You’ll be unsurprised to read that a band featuring legendary Trouble bassist Ron Holzner in its ranks plays Doom Metal, but what what may surprise you is how they play it and what else they bring to the table. Active since 2008, Chicago’s Earthen…

Earthless ‘From The Ages’ CD/LP/DD 2013

3rd October 2013 at 9:31 am

Earthless

While it may have taken five years for San Diego’s Earthless to get around to recording another full-length, From The Ages feel like it could have been released the day after its predecessor. It recaptures the trio’s deep-rooted psychic kinship, three musicians who excel…

Earthless ‘Live At Roadburn’ CD/LP 2008

14th August 2009 at 9:01 am

Earthless

I had the very good fortune of seeing San Diego’s lysergic masters of the extended super-jam reality, Earthless, on their recent tour this year, slaying the audience at the tiny Retro Bar in Manchester. I’d heard they were good, I just didn’t realise they…
