H.P. Lovecraft ‘The Hound & The Music Of Erich Zann’ LP 2016

16th January 2016 at 2:44 pm

H.P. Lovecraft

It could be argued that H. P. Lovecraft‘s connection with heavy and weird music was cemented with the inclusion of Behind The Wall Of Sleep – a track inspired by HPL‘s 1919 short story Beyond The Wall Of Sleep – on Sabbath’s 1970 debut….

HAG ‘Fear Of Man’ DD 2016

23rd January 2016 at 5:27 pm

HAG

As far as any of us can remember, there’s been a two-tier hierarchy in progressive sludge metal: Tier 1 – High On Fire, Tier 2 – everyone else. Underrated heroes Teeth Of The Hydra tried to scale that never-ending beanstalk to Tier 1 heaven…

Haikai No Ku ‘Sick On My Journey’ LP/CD/DD 2013

15th August 2013 at 9:49 am

Haikai No Ku

There are artists whose whole reputation hangs on one stupendous work – a painting, song or film that stands out as a singular achievement within the context of their output; case in point, Chubby Checker’s (deserved) reputation hinges on him having sung the most…

Haikai No Ku ‘Ultra High Dimensionality’ LP/DD 2014

1st September 2014 at 9:17 am

Haikai No Ku

Finally, Haikai No Ku’s latest! Mike Vest and accomplices Jerome Smith and Sam Booth strike again. Hailing from Newcastle’s noisey space environments and first originating as one of Mike Vest’s many ‘side’ bands (or is it even truly his? auteur theory usually sucks), Haikai…

Hair Of The Dog – S/T – DD 2014

26th March 2014 at 9:09 am

Hair Of The Dog - S/T

So they may or may not be named after the Nazareth song…let’s just assume they are…and they’re from Edinburgh, which is in Scotland, home of Nazareth! So now we’ve set up a direct link to Scotland’s greatest ever band, this has to bode well…

Hammerhands ‘Glaciers’ CD/DD 2013

7th August 2013 at 8:50 am

Hammerhands

OOF. With one opening chord, Hammerhands have won my over by approximating the sound of a landslide of boulders. Always a good sign. That huge chord that opens this album by the Canadian gang leads into the further 10 minutes of pummeling low end…

Hang The Bastard ‘Sex In The Seventh Circle’ CD/LP/DD 2014

29th October 2014 at 10:46 am

Hang The Bastard

“We are called Hang The Bastard I have no delusions of grandeur.” That’s what vocalist Tomas Hubbard told me in 2013, almost exactly a year ago about his band that just released a new 7″. One year further, Hang The Bastard is still the…

Haoma - Demo 2013

Haoma are a Swedish two piece consisting of Hozomeen on Interstellar Thunderstorms and Obelisk (nope, not Asterix’s fat ginger mate) on Bass Quakes and Drones. Thankfully they have the chops to back up the description. Hopefully this wont stay stuck at the demo stage…

Hark ‘Crystalline’ CD/LP/DD 2014

28th March 2014 at 10:49 am

Hark

Personally I felt it was a sad day for underground British rock music when Taint split up. Having been turned on to them by accident when a friend recommended their fabulous debut, ‘The Ruin Of Nova Roma‘ back in 2007 and to be honest…
