Jackal-Headed Guard Of The Dead ‘The Sky Has Been Riven And Our Flesh Has Been Rent’ CDEP 2010

13th October 2010 at 9:08 am

Jackal-Headed Guard Of The Dead

Edinburgh’s wickedly monikered Jackal-Headed Guard of The Dead play instrumental sludge/doom that’s heavily inspired by H.P Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. Admiration must immediately be bestowed upon the title of this release and the song titles, with ‘The Howling Teeth of Space’ instantly bringing Lovecraftian dread…

Jacknife Holiday ‘Stinkin ‘n’ Drinkin’ CDEP 2010

27th July 2010 at 9:14 am

Jacknife Holiday

The name says it all doesn’t it, Jacknife Holiday, the delight and recreational possibilities of pure mindless violence!!! These guys shit riffs and grooves in their sleep but deliver them with a maniacal gleam in the eye and foul, fetid breath!!! Claiming influence from…

Jarboe / Justin K Broadrick ‘J2’ CDEP 2008

12th June 2008 at 8:47 am

Jarboe / Justin K Broadrick

I played this for a friend of mine recently and his main reaction was “I would not fancy this on acid”. Indeed, and I can see where he is coming from. This release is strange and atmospheric, also at times rather unsettling. That said…

Jaw Horse ‘Cancer Creek’ CD/DD 2012

5th January 2013 at 10:49 am

Jaw Horse

I’m a man of pretty varied tastes when it comes to music. Sometimes I like to chill out with something acoustic, sometimes I like to tax myself with some prog rock, sometimes I’ll stretch out of my rock and roll comfort zone with some…

Jeremy Irons & The Ratgang Malibus ‘Spirit Knife’ CD/LP/DD 2014

9th October 2014 at 11:30 am

Jeremy Irons & The Ratgang Malibus

Imagine, if you will, the expansive psychedelia of Blues For The Red Sun-era Kyuss, minus the heft , filtered through the gritty alt-countrified garage rock of Woven Hand and with the wild and untamed Jeff Buckley on vocals. Sounds fucking beautiful doesn’t it? Well,…

Jess And The Ancient Ones ‘Castaneda’ 10″ 2014

28th October 2014 at 9:26 am

Jess And The Ancient Ones

Jess And The Ancient Ones are one of these bands that you just get, or you don’t. The whole female-fronted occult rock/doom movement is, for better or for worse, losing a bit of steam and the best bands, the cream, is rising to the…

Jess And The Ancient Ones ‘Second Psychedelic Coming: The Aquarius Tapes’ CD/LP/DD 2015

19th November 2015 at 8:44 pm

Jess And The Ancient Ones

The ‘occult rock’ tag has been thrown around a fair few times over the last five years; in 2015 the term, perhaps thankfully, has not been quite so popular. With bands like Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats, Witchcraft and Ghost B.C enjoying mass popularity,…

14th October 2013 at 11:07 am

Jesu

Anyone who is an aficionado of extreme music is familiar with, and loves, some of the work that Justin Broadrick has produced. His presence and influence has towered over extreme music for nearly 25 years, from the insane Grindcore blast of Napalm Death’s ‘Scum’,…

Jesu ‘Lifeline’ CDEP 2007

23rd November 2007 at 8:54 am

Jesu

With the rate of his output, it’s clear that Justin Broadrick is deeply committed to Jesu and he has outdone himself again with ‘Lifeline’. The EP easily stands up to any of Jesu’s previous material and the four tracks flow seamlessly, gliding organically and…

Jesu – S/T – CD 2004

14th March 2005 at 9:04 am

Jesu - S/T - CD 2004

I really didn’t know how I was going to start this review as the first time I gave Jesu’s debut full length release a spin I was left totally speechless with the feeling that I’d just listened to something very very special indeed. For…
