Nightsatan ‘Nightsatan And The Loops Of Doom’ CD/DVD 2014

16th April 2014 at 9:41 am

Nightsatan

We live in an age where a hell of a lot of people (myself included) seem to love soundtrack albums, especially those of 70s/80s horror and sci-fi films. The ‘Nightsatan And The Loops of Doom’ soundtrack has all the squakky synths, big reverb toms,…

Nightstalker ‘Dead Rock Commandos’ CD/DD 2012

23rd July 2012 at 11:39 am

Nightstalker ‘Dead Rock Commandos’ CD/DD 2012

Greece may well be on the bones of its arse financially but it seems like they have some serious rock collateral in the bank!!! Nightstalker as a band almost seem as old as the Acropolis by rock music standards having formed in the country…

Nightstick ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Weymouth’ CD/LP 2012

31st October 2012 at 7:20 am

Nightstick

Nightstick. Nightstick, Nightstick, Nightstick. Remember them? Of course you do – three piece? Featured ex-Siege drummer Robert Williams? Did three monumentally heavy and increasingly more far-out albums for Relapse back in the late nineties? No? Had a dancing clown named Padoinka on stage with…

Nihill ‘Verderf’ CD/LP/DD 2014

20th November 2014 at 10:22 am

Nihill

I think it’s always a good thing to start with some honesty. Reviewing the new Nihill record, I have to admit that I’m pretty much a fan boy since I witnessed them live, making Mayhem look like a record you just heard too often….

Nihill ‘Verdonkermaan’ CD/LP/CS/DD 2012

17th September 2012 at 9:07 am

Nihill

A rare foray into black metal territory for Hydra Head, a label which – to be fair – is by no means narrow-sighted in its output, but the label behind this album and the general angle of its catalogue of releases is almost certainly…

No Anchor ‘Real Pain Supernova’ 2xLP 2011

5th June 2011 at 8:58 am

No Anchor

You have to admire a band who can reference both Tom Waits AND Oasis with their album title but turn out to be twin-bass-driven purveyors of caustic Amphetamine Reptile-style noise rock, so major props to the ear-shredding Aussie maniacs of No Anchor. The angular…

No Anchor ‘Rope/Pussyfootin’ 7″/Digital EP 2012

11th April 2012 at 7:25 am

No Anchor

Brisbane’s No Anchor, self proclaimed purveyors of “harshed-out sludge”, whose 2011 album Real Pain Supernova was a surprising amalgamation of Fugazi and Shellac-like punk and sludge are back again with a limited 7” vinyl release. Recorded after doing some kind of seven-day residency in…

No Gods No Masters – S/T EP – CD/DD 2013

15th February 2014 at 10:32 am

No Gods No Masters - S/T

Having been described as a NOLA infused sludge/doom outfit, my immediate excitement to hear No Gods No Masters‘ 4 song EP was tempered with a bit of skepticism. When one draws comparisons (as in the bio) to such high caliber acts as The Cro-Mags…

Nomad ‘The House Is Dead’ CD/CS/DD 2014

12th May 2014 at 9:59 am

Nomad

Sludge is a interesting metal subgenre, which for me personally I have always enjoyed more than the “doom” or “stoner” types. Being from the south of the US, I am somewhat biased, I mean arguably it was kind of created down here. Bands like…

Nomad / Wort – Split – CD/DD 2015

28th July 2015 at 7:58 pm

Nomad / Wort - Split

A split release from Manchester’s own Nomad and Huddersfield’s Wort out on Red Valley Records. Seven songs in praise of heavy riffing and sludgy doom. That sounds rather good, doesn’t it? Both bands have demonstrated their art in previous releases. Nomad did an EP,…
