26th February 2014 at 9:21 am

Sabbath Assembly

When it comes to religious experiences through music, many bands take on that challenge – yet fail miserably. Sabbath Assembly hailing out of Texas, U.S. take on the scripture of ‘The Church Of The Final Judgment’ and transcend the verses and texts through chilling…

Sabbath Assembly – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2015

7th September 2015 at 6:53 pm

Sabbath Assembly - S/T

Never walk into something religious unprepared. Not only is it so that you don’t offend someone, but you also might offend your own senses. I mean, there are animals you shouldn’t eat, gestures you shouldn’t make, so there ought to be music you should…

Sacri Monti – S/T – CD/LP 2015

15th August 2015 at 1:54 pm

Sacri Monti - S/T

Sacri Monti are a fuzzy, psychey, trip-out of a band from San Diego, California whose debut eponymous full length has just dropped down on us from Tee Pee Records’ sepia-tinted land of sonic solace. The quintet are comprised of members of Radio Moscow (bassist…

Saint Vitus ‘C.O.D.’ Reissue CD/LP 2013

29th August 2013 at 11:00 am

Saint Vitus

One of the major benefits of a band’s discography getting re-appraised in their twilight years, is that neglected albums get given a second chance to shine. Season Of Mist have given you and I, dear reader, the chance to have another crack at the…

Saint Vitus ‘Die Healing’ Reissue CD/LP 2013

28th August 2013 at 8:27 am

Saint Vitus

Some albums are beyond dispute, criticism or discussion, purely by virtue of their status within the pantheon of their respective genres – think “Sad Wings of Destiny”, “In The Sign Of Evil”, “Master Of Reality”, the list goes on… There is no doubt that…

Saint Vitus ‘Lillie: F-65’ LP/CD/DD 2012

7th May 2012 at 9:54 am

Saint Vitus Lillie: F-65’ LP/CD/DD 2012

As heavy metal evolves and its various faces are subverted, rehashed and cross-bred, it is almost inevitable that the originators of its various genres should attempt a return to the frontline as their influence is hailed. The last decade is littered with comebacks, some…

Salem’s Pot ‘Sweeden’ DD 2012

8th September 2012 at 11:11 am

Salem

With a name like this it is incredibly hard to imagine a sound that isn’t doom or Sabbath inspired.  The concept of the name was born from the idea that Lucifer himself began growing his own weed in Salem and strange things began to…

Salem’s Pot ‘lurar ut dig på prärien’ CD/LP 2014

6th May 2014 at 10:33 am

Salem’s Pot

There have been, as of late, lots of bands coming out with record covers looking like 70’s exploitation/horror movie posters. This aesthetic makes for cool looking covers, but more often than not the music tends to lend towards the bland “I’ve heard this a…

Salome – S/T – CD/LP 2008

16th December 2008 at 8:58 am

Salome - S/T - CD/LP 2008

AAAArrrrghhh. This is ace. Salome are a thrilling three piece from Virginia, USA that sound like a super evil psychotic cataclysm amplified by black magic and blasted out the yawning anus of Hastur the Unspeakable. Fans of Khanate in particular will love this bleak…

Sammal ‘No. 2’ CD/LP 2014

18th May 2014 at 11:00 am

Sammal

Sammal got complaints about their EP from reviewers. Apparently the lyrics where not very understandable. That is not highly surprising in the least, since everything is Finnish and typical at that, it almost sounds like a record that could be played at the local…
