Goatess – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2013

25th June 2013 at 8:58 am

Goatess - ST

I know what you’re thinking, I had exactly the same thought, “Oh fuck, another bloody ‘Goat’ band”, but stop right there, if I were to tell you that Goatess feature the vocal talents of one Christian ‘Chritus’ Lindersson, formerly of Count Raven, Saint Vitus…

Goatsnake ‘Black Age Blues’ CD/LP/DD 2015

8th July 2015 at 6:55 pm

Goatsnake

The gentle patter of rain on a tin roof, a harmonica chiming in the night, the imposing calm of a church amid a clouded woodland, sundials in the shade – some things in life are simply meant to be timeless. The humble blues itself…

Goatsnake ‘Flower Of Disease’ Reissue CD 2010

9th June 2010 at 8:34 am

Goatsnake

Originally released on the now dearly departed Man’s Ruin Records and on vinyl by Southern Lord this long overdue (8 years out of print folks) CD format reissue is a timely reminder of a band who had too short a career. Goatsnake merely released…

God Macabre ‘The Winterlong’ CD/LP/DD Reissue 2014

23rd June 2014 at 9:50 am

God Macabre

The year was 1993; a time when Sunlight Studios, Tomas Skogsberg, and Boss HM-2 pedals were household names and not coveted ‘holy grails’ for trendy, hipster, ‘brutal’ wannabes. With the progression of technology, wide accessibility of Pro-tools and online marketing, besides being born with…

Godflesh ‘A World Lit Only By Fire’ CD/LP/DD 2014

13th October 2014 at 9:21 am

Godflesh

It literally seems like a life time ago that I was a first day buyer for Godflesh‘s last appearance, the seminal 2001 album Hymns. Back then the world was in the grips of Nu Metal and whilst an album by the legendary talents of…

Godflesh ‘Decline & Fall’ CDEP/12″/DD 2014

29th May 2014 at 11:25 am

Godflesh

There’s usually a bit of trepidation going in to listen to something like this. The pessimist in all of us was brought out when Carcass announced ‘Surgical Steel’, and was then promptly silenced when we actually heard it and realised that, shock and horror,…

Godhunter ‘City Of Dust’ CD/LP/DD 2014

30th January 2014 at 9:48 am

Godhunter

Godhunter are from Tucson, Arizona, yet the scorching sunshine of their home state seems to have left little trace on their dark, dense, sludgy outpourings. Their debut LP, ‘City Of Dust’ has an overpowering sense of groove. There’s the unmistakable sludge doom fingerprints over…

16th September 2014 at 10:58 am

Godhunter / Secrets Of The Sky

The concept of the GH/0ST:S split dates back to Godhunter and Secrets Of The Sky’s recent Southwest US tour, during which the bands sold a strictly limited run of 100 cassettes bearing this joint effort. Now, the split is back for the rest of us…

Godspeed You! Black Emperor ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!’ CD/LP/DD 2012

6th November 2012 at 8:24 am

Godspeed You! Black Emperor

With characteristic little fanfare, Godspeed You! Black Emperor are back with album number four, an album that was announced the day they released it at a gig in Boston on the 1st October 2012, fourteen days before it’s official release date. In a time…

Godstopper ‘What Matters’ LP/DD 2013

28th May 2013 at 10:08 am

Godstopper

Somewhere between the Thunder-Pop of sparkly heavy-hitters Torche, the aggressive sludge of fellow Floridians Cavity and the awkward stop-start dream-logic quasi-operatic noise rock of Pony Express Record-era Shudder To Think lie Toronto’s Godstopper. Yet more proof that there’s something in the water in Canada,…
