R.O.A.D – S/T – LP/DD 2014

28th February 2014 at 8:41 am

R.O.A.D - S/T

As far as PR fluff goes Nancy based retro rockers R.O.A.D should be forever indebted to VS-Webzine for coining this incredible piece of descriptive writing: “(The) Bastard child of Motorhead and Nashville Pussy, R.O.A.D seem to have been suckled by Black Sabbath, have drunk…

Rabbits ‘SOS (Singles, Other Shit)’ CS/DD 2013

14th January 2014 at 9:00 am

Rabbits

Rabbits’ new tape ‘SOS (Singles, Other Shit)‘ is a handy overview of one of the premier underground noise acts – in fact, it plays as though they are doing a label-showcase for Sub Pop in 1990 or Earache in 92. They present their most…

RABBITS ‘Untoward’ LP/DD 2014

11th September 2014 at 10:29 am

RABBITS

Apparently they are so intense, the name needs to be written in capitals, which seems quite fitting if you listen to the fury that is RABBITS. Described in their bio as debauchery-fueled ruckus, intoxicating hangover nightmares, scathing audio beatings you can’t help but ask…

Rachmanite – S/T – CDEP 2008

7th August 2008 at 9:09 am

No Artwork

I have to admit on paper when I first heard about this band I was pretty wary. A two piece instrumental band with guitar and drums. If I’m completely honest I was fully expecting this to be a half formed load of shit. Well…

Radio Moscow ‘Magical Dirt’ CD/LP/DD 2014

14th May 2014 at 10:27 am

Radio Moscow

Rock and roll! Man, it is a beautiful thing! And rock and roll is what you will get on Radio Moscow’s 4th long player, ‘Magical Dirt‘. An awesomely vintage psychedelic painting of a mushroom rising above fields, stars, and mountains on the cover pretty…

Raedon Kong – S/T – CDEP/DD 2013

6th March 2013 at 8:54 am

Raedon Kong - S/T

Wow. Purveyors of cosmic woe Raedon Kong are one of those bands you come across every once in a while that have the gift of sounding both familiar and strangely unique. Including former members of Collapsar and The Icepick Revival, this new duo is…

Ragged Barracudas – S/T – 7″/DD 2014

2nd June 2014 at 1:02 pm

Ragged Barracudas - S/T - 7"

With a name like Ragged Barracudas, you could be forgiven for expecting something harsh, raw, jagged and mean to‎ be lurking in this relatively new act’s murky midst. On the strength of this debut 3-track vinyl from the German three-piece however, the cumulative sum…

Ramesses ‘Baptism Of The Walking Dead’ 3″ CDEP 2009

2nd July 2009 at 9:35 am

Ramesses

Ah…tattooed arms, dirty beards, top grade weed, cult horror films, Egyptology, painfully loud Ashdown amps and the beautiful Dorset countryside – yes, o’ children of Tartarus, it’s Ramesses time. This recently released 3 inch CD ep illustrates just how brutally powerful and stunningly original…

Ramesses ‘Chrome Pineal’ 12″ 2011

5th April 2011 at 9:14 am

Ramesses

Since drummer Mark Greening and guitarist Tim Bagshaw defected from their previous employer and hooked up with bassist/vocalist Adam Richardson many moons ago they have slowly developed their claustrophobic take on doom into a towering, monolithic and hypnotic behemoth that draws from death metal…

Ramesses ‘Misanthropic Alchemy’ Reissue CD/LP 2013

6th July 2013 at 9:32 am

Ramesses

Undoubtedly one of the most notorious acts in British underground doom, Ramesses tore a hole in the scene and people’s hearts upon announcing their split earlier this year. Whilst fans are in their mourning period, Ritual Productions are shedding no tears and, instead, seizing…
