21st November 2007 at 9:06 am

Electric Wizard

When a band as formidable within the stoner doom circuit as Electric Wizard release a new album, people familiar with their work take note. Electric Wizard are among the very best in the genre, and stand out as fan favourites with contemporaries such as…

Electrozombies/Hellborn Messiah - Split CD 2009

Shock! Horror! Latin America quakes with the old-skool power of blackened CRUST. After seeing these foul and heavy skull fuckers maiming the crowd t’other night at the Star & Garter it was only proper that this new split ep I picked up gets a…

Elephant Tree ‘Theia’ CD/LP/DD 2014

26th October 2014 at 11:54 am

Elephant Tree

Does London really need another stoner metal band to add to the seemingly never-ending roster of rifforama being pumped out of the capital? It’s a worthy question at this point in time with notable amounts of scene saturation, promoters losing money, crowd-power wavering and…

Elephant Tree – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2016

17th March 2016 at 7:11 pm

Elephant Tree - S/T

Ladies and gentlemen, here we have the debut album from the London-based band; Elephant Tree. Believe me, when I say this, this monolithic slab of wax is as heavy as it sounds. You may remember this band’s debut release Theia back in 2014 in…

Elevators To The Grateful Sky ‘Cape Yawn’ LP/DD 2016

21st February 2016 at 1:55 pm

Elevators To The Grateful Sky

Sometimes you have to recalibrate your listening curve and abandon all expectations when a record like Elevators To The Grateful Sky’s (ETTGS) Cape Yawn comes around – the Palermo, Sicily quartet (Sandro-vox, Giorgio-guitars/bass, Peppe-guitars, and Giulio-drums/percussion) have prided themselves on the fusion of diverse…

Emptiness ‘Not For Music’ 2017

13th June 2017 at 7:12 pm

Emptiness

For some strange reason, everyone keeps calling Emptiness a black/death metal band. I might be quite late to the party (Not For Music is the band’s fifth full-length, not including three demos), but I don’t get the use of the label. Although it is…

Empty Flowers ‘The Air You Found’ CD 2014

8th February 2014 at 11:03 am

Empty Flowers

From what I can tell, no one really likes remixes (this isn’t going to be a hugely negative review, so stick with me). Ask the average person on the street their opinion and it’ll likely be negative, and fair enough; does anyone really like…

Enabler ‘All Hail The Void’ CD 2012

23rd June 2012 at 10:51 am

Enabler

The slow acoustic strum of a simple chord progression plays through a handful of times as delay echoes in the background and feral feedback makes its presence known with volume swells, and then surging in with unforgiving urgency we are assaulted to brutal thrash,…

Enabler ‘Flies’ CDEP/DD 2013

4th November 2013 at 9:24 am

Enabler

The first time I heard Enabler was on the tail end of a mix tape put out by Southern Lord (The Power of the Riff tour mix if I remember correctly) and the track ‘All Hail the Void’ – the visceral energy and pure…

Enabler ‘La Fin Absolue Du Monde’ CD/LP/DD 2014

1st July 2014 at 8:39 am

Enabler

It’s been two years since Enabler‘s All Hail The Void descended onto the scene beating its chest and thrusting its gargantuan metal-core knackers in our faces. All Hail The Void was an impetuous first album, enthusiastically weaving its way through hardcore, crust, death, grind,…
