Hazzard’s Cure – S/T – CD/Cassette 2011

20th February 2012 at 12:32 pm

Hazzard

If you open an album with a riff that instantly puts me in mind of ‘In The Grip Of Winter’ by Autopsy, you’ve pretty much won me over. If you then proceed to knock out an album’s worth of tracks that smush that dirty,…

Headless Kross ‘Bear’ Digital CD 2011

7th March 2012 at 8:11 am

Headless Kross

Bear with a fucking sore arse more like. This 40 minute album (download it from bandcamp) of six songs by whisker-chopped Glaswegian power-trio Headless Kross hammers down the riffs like Vulcan on an inspirational day at the forge – a case of Ursa Minor…

Headless Kross ‘Volumes’ CD/LP/DD 2015

6th May 2015 at 7:17 pm

Headless Kross

Glaswegian doomsters Headless Kross first broke down my door with their colossal riffs on 2012’s Demises, two tracks of monolithic crush tinged with psychedelica. After a heavier than hell split with Lazarus Blackstar in 2013, their new record Volumes is ready to steamroll anything…

Heartless ‘Hell Is Other People’ CD/LP 2011

20th October 2011 at 2:37 pm

Heartless

I don’t claim to be an expert on hardcore by any stretch; to me it tends to fall into two camps – the powerfully uplifting and anthemic or the kind that kicks your face off and leaves you punch drunk with its intensity. Pittsburgh’s…

Heat ‘Labyrinth’ CD/LP/DD 2014

5th October 2014 at 1:27 pm

Heat

Heat’s self-titled debut was a decent stab at heavy, retro 70’s blues rock that chased hard at the heels of bands such as Witchcraft and Graveyard and was a good foothold for the band but this follow up sees a consolidation of the band’s…

Heat – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2012

12th October 2012 at 7:34 am

Heat - S/T - CD/LP/DD 2012

The tsunami of backwards looking retro rocking bands continues to roll across Europe sweeping up all in its path and systematically destroying the last vestiges of nu-metal in its wake. The latest band to join the ranks is Heat from Germany. Featuring current and…

Heavy Glow ‘Midnight Moan’ CD/DD 2011

4th November 2011 at 8:06 am

Heavy Glow

Ok, I’ll admit the majority of recent music I get to listen to is as a result of this reviewing lark, and yes, there is a lot of impressive stuff out there. However, if left to my own listening devices I will, more than…

HeavyPink - 7" 2011

That Tony Reed is a clever bugger and no mistake. The mainstay behind both Mos Generator and Stone Axe takes yet another step into recorded sound with this latest project, Heavy Pink. This time around this is truly a solo effort; Reed wrote, played,…

Heinali and Matt Finney ‘Conjoined’ CD 2010

6th September 2011 at 8:31 am

Heinali and Matt Finney

‘Conjoined’ is the auditory result of the meeting of minds betwixt Ukrainian composer Heinali and American poet Matt Finney, and the combination of the vast, cinematic scope of Heinali’s soundscapes with the close-to-the-ear intimacy of Finney’s spoken word performance makes for quite the intriguing…
