Eidetic Seeing ‘Drink The Sun’ LP/Digital 2011

18th July 2012 at 9:17 am

Eidetic Seeing

If the last five years have seen doom metal become de rigeur, then the next five will see the same process of assimilation into the (relative) mainstream of what can broadly be dubbed “heavy psych”. Already it seems that every man, woman and beast…

El-Thule ‘No Guts, No Glory’ CD 2004

2nd March 2005 at 1:19 pm

El-Thule

They say looks can be deceiving and that’s certainly the case for El-Thule’s ‘No Guts, No Glory’ opus. When this little beauty dropped through my letterbox, the moment I laid eyes on the inlay, it had me convinced it was an all out, groove…

Elder ‘Live At Roadburn 2013’ CD/LP/DD 2014

18th December 2013 at 9:29 am

Elder

What can you say about Elder that hasn’t been said already? The astonishingly astute, yet frighteningly youthful Massachusetts three-piece have taken the stoner rock world by storm since the 2008 release of their bone-chundering self-titled debut, followed up by that cosmic vortex otherwise known…

Elder – S/T – CD/LP 2009

13th August 2009 at 8:49 am

Elder - S/T - CD/LP 2009

Riffs. Everywhere. Gigantic thick distorted riffs. Help me mother, the riffs are here, and they want fresh plasma and bone marrow. ‘White Walls’ kicks off with low and grumbling bass, then the power-riffing starts. Fabulous stuff. Massachusetts three piece Elder really sock out some…

Electric Citizen ‘Sateen’ CD/LP 2014

12th June 2014 at 9:57 am

Electric Citizen

I cringe when I hear the phrase in reviews “female fronted”. Not that I am against women singers, or think they do not belong, it just seems like a cop out, its music, no one says “male fronted” when talking about bands, so what’s…

Electric Funeral ‘Total Funeral’ LP/DD 2014

23rd August 2014 at 10:17 am

Electric Funeral

Punk, like most musical genres has taken many twists and turns over the years and has thrown up bands that exist under the same umbrella that bare little sonic and ethical resemblance to each other. Without debating the starting point we have reached the…

Electric Red ‘In This Machine’ CD 2010

28th August 2010 at 9:06 am

Electric Red

When Electric Red came under my radar in early 2009 with a three track demo, “Ion” claiming to have recorded it themselves and to only have been a going concern as a band for 6 months I thought they were basically bullshitting to big…

Electric Red ‘Ion’ CDEP 2008

16th January 2009 at 8:43 am

Electric Red

The note I got with this release from Belfast based unit claims they’ve only been around for about six months and recorded this three track release themselves in their rehearsal room. Now, call me cynical, but either these guys are lying through their arses…

Electric Wizard ‘Black Masses’ CD/LP 2010

7th January 2011 at 8:52 am

Electric Wizard

By the time this review hits the shaman, it would have been two months since the release of the last album by the stoned gurus that are Electric Wizard. I would like to say this album is their best to date, unfortunately it isn’t….

Electric Wizard ‘Time To Die’ CD/LP/DD 2014

2nd October 2014 at 10:59 am

Electric Wizard

I don’t give a shit if every single reviewer talks you to the mouth, press agent. They are all retyping your synesthetic descriptions of hammer horror. Adjective-laden pieces of poor taste, written by yes men, hyping your shit up, playing your fucking cheerleaders. But…
