General ‘Goji’ CD/DD 2015

14th February 2016 at 1:56 pm

General 'Goji'

General’s first album Where Are Your Gods Now, released in 2012 on Catacomb Records was a bit of a belter…big on riffs, grooves and showing some killer song writing touches and fantastic, raw, impassioned vocals. It’s an album that should have booted them up…

General ‘Where Are Your Gods Now’ CD/DD 2012

Catacomb Records is not the most prolific label with only a small handful of releases to show for their five year history. Unlike some labels they don’t operate a scattergun approach to releases a shed load of stuff to see what sticks preferring to…

Whoa there, hold the phone have I missed something??? I seem to have fallen asleep and woken up in 1973 as that’s the year these guys are living their entire existence. What a luxury that must be for them, they haven’t had to endure…

Ggu:ll ‘Dwaling’ CD/LP/DD 2016

24th May 2016 at 6:34 pm

Ggu:ll

Ggu:ll have finally released that long awaited full length, titled Dwaling. Its title would translate as ‘error’, but it feels slightly more like being lost in the dark. In the darkness of Ggu:ll there might actually dwell monsters. That’s what their album, presented during…

Ghast

Crawling from their fetid nest in darkest Swansea, outlying the blighted Monmouthshire landscape claimed by Machen and Howard as home to races of degenerate inhuman reptilian throwbacks and the awful ‘little people’ of legend, Ghast have finally braved the burning sunlight to deliver a…

Ghold ‘Of Ruin’ CD/DD 2015

5th April 2015 at 9:56 am

Ghold

It’s the dawn of man, a group of Neanderthals are sat around their recent discovery of fire, brows furrowed, grunting indiscernibly. Suddenly a time portal opens and through it appears a bass guitar, an amp, pedals and a drum kit. What ensues next is…

14th January 2011 at 8:44 am

Ghoul Poon

More often than not when writing a review, I try to live with a release for a while and let it sink in. Initial impressions can quickly give way to almost the opposite feeling after a while (I’d give examples but I fear promoting…
