Gnaw ‘Horrible Chamber’ CD/LP/DD 2013

25th September 2013 at 9:30 am

Gnaw

It could be said that for every album, there’s a movie counterpart that reflects it. For every piece of disposable boy-band fluff, there’s a phoned-in tearjerker with a white couple embracing in the rain on the cover; for every Cannibal Corpse clone, there’s Eli…

Gnaw Their Tongues ‘Abyss Of Longing Throats’ CD/DD 2015

5th January 2016 at 6:54 pm

Gnaw Their Tongues

Having seen Gnaw Their Tongues live this past October, I can honestly say that we’re talking about one of the most intense acts in heavy music today. It’s not just noisy, it is harrowing and disturbing, almost like the soundtrack to the darkest nightmares…

Gnaw Their Tongues

Lock your doors. Bar your windows. Seal yourself inside your home. Call the police. It won’t save you, Gnaw Their Tongues have returned and now nowhere is safe. THIS is the sound of the apocalypse, of impending doom. The sound that Michael Myers had…

Goat ‘Commune’ CD/LP/DD 2014

30th September 2014 at 10:07 am

Goat

In most senses of the word, Goat are no longer a band – they are a phenomenon. The anonymous collective made a name for themselves with tales of Swedish voodoo origins, a diverse sound that absorbed Fela Kuti, Hawkwind and Curtis Mayfield, amongst many…

Goat ‘Live Ballroom Ritual’ CD/LP/DD 2013

9th December 2013 at 9:38 am

Goat

Imagine the Summer of Love never ended. If you weren’t alive during the summer of ’67, that’s even better. Imagine what you think the Summer of Love was like, now imagine it never ended, and that we are living in a utopian dream. Imagine…

Goat ‘Stonegoat/Dreambuilding’ 7″/DD 2013

5th June 2013 at 9:55 am

Goat

If you’re unfamiliar so far with the Swedish musical phenomenon known simply as Goat, then I really do hope that life under that giant rock isn’t stinking too much of your stale weed and dusty old albums. Smashing into our global weird-beard consciousness in…

Goat Leaf ‘A Lack Of Oxygen – Tales Of Crashing Satellites’ CD/DD 2013

29th April 2013 at 11:51 am

Goat Leaf

Sometimes being an ardent rock fan can be a suffocating experience. With so many genre tentacles of the beast twisting and mutating, often spawning a million faceless clones, or worse bands exhibiting, frequently misguided attempts to be “different”, it’s easy to get sucked into…

Goatess ‘Purgatory Under New Management’ CD/LP/DD 2016

22nd April 2016 at 6:45 pm

Goatess

In spite of its self-evidently gloomy name, ‘doom’ is a vibrant genre. Contrary to the expectations of some, the scene is not exemplified by bearded man with long, scraggly hair wearing sandwich boards and proclaiming that ‘the end is nigh!’ (although the beards and…
