Kikagaku Moyo ‘Mammatus Clouds’ LP/DD 2014

19th August 2014 at 9:49 am

Kikagaku Moyo

For me, Japanese psychedelia is one of those genres where my taste is, admittedly, a little undiscerning- if it’s competent I’ll love it, if it’s in the top 10% of the genre, I’ll abuse the shit out of it. Time will tell whether Kikagaku…

Madder Mortem

22nd September 2013 at 9:34 am

Maeth

Maeth…well…they came in off the oceanic, untold distances of soundspace (is that even a word?) with the calling of seabirds in my ears. And all I could think of was Roland Deschain, The Last Gunslinger (from Stephen King’s magnum opus The Dark Tower) lying…

Mage ‘Black Sands’ CD/DD 2012

8th January 2013 at 11:37 am

Mage

Mage’s debut EP in 2011 was a tantalising taste of things to come for the band, muscular riffs and raw yet soulful vocals combined in a stoner/doom crossover style that was simple yet highly effective. In the time since that EP was released the…

Have you ever heard that live album by Down, you know the one where Phil Anselmo sings so far out of tune at one point you can feel the skin trying to crawl from your body? Well, singing aside, at one point he talks…

Magma Rise / The Asound – Split 7″ 2011

12th September 2011 at 8:54 am

Magma Rise / The Asound – Split 7" 2011

Split EP’s are a fantastic idea to my mind. A frustratingly short sample of music from the band you like and another (potentially) new experience for you to discover and love. From a bands point of view you could get to increase your audience…
