Taarkus ‘Stones’ 7″ 2016

28th February 2016 at 12:03 pm

Taarkus

Here we have Taarkus… from Los Angeles, California. A relatively new band cited as a doom metal outfit with addition instruments and their own style. Well the first chord that struck with me was the name of this 7” and its artwork. The cover…

Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster ‘Exegesis’ CD 2011

12th March 2012 at 8:59 am

Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster ‘Exegesis’ CD 2011

Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster are clearly Dick-heads. Now, before you start getting all uppity, let me explain – fans of the visionary author Philip K. Dick are often referred to as Dick-heads. Not dickheads, but Dick-heads, okay? Not for one minute am I insinuating…

Taint ‘Secrets And Lies’ CD/LP 2008

28th January 2009 at 9:13 am

Taint

Some albums come out of Left-field and leave you breathless. For me Taint’s debut ‘The Ruin Of Nova Roma’ was such an album, an angular swaggering record full of attitude that bordered on furious noise and spaced out prog and remained on the stereo…

Take Over & Destroy ‘Rotten Tide’ Digital EP 2012

8th February 2012 at 8:22 am

Take Over & Destroy

In 2009 I reviewed an album by a band called Queen Beast. This was a savage, unhinged ride into oblivion that peeled back the psyche of the American Dream. Fast forward to the present and sadly it seems that they are no more, however…

Take Over And Destroy ‘Vacant Face’ CD/DD 2014

19th September 2014 at 12:08 pm

Take Over And Destroy

Under the initialism of T.O.A.D. several demented folks from Tempe, Arizona unleashed an EP called Rotten Tide in 2011, where I described them as a “six piece aural assault unit combining the visceral snarl of punk and grind with the more muscular resonance of…

Taunt / Stumm – Split 7″ – 2007

7th October 2007 at 9:18 am

Taunt / Stumm - Split 7" - 2007

This 7″ was initially released in June 07, but due to problems with the 1st pressing, Calculon decided to do a re-call and get the record re-pressed and re-released in August 2007 which is how it should have been first time around, so if…

Taurus ‘Life’ LP/CD/Digital 2012

6th August 2012 at 7:59 am

Taurus

When I heard that Stevie Floyd of doom duo Dark Castle had formed a psychedelic doom side-project with Ashley Spungin of Purple Rhinestone Eagle I, like many people, was pretty excited. Floyd’s work with Dark Castle has been among some of the more exciting…

Taurus ‘No/Thing’ CD/LP/DD 2014

31st March 2014 at 8:38 am

Taurus

Stevie Floyd and Ashley Spungin can be considered doom high priestesses – if you’ve yet to check out either of their previous projects, Dark Castle or Purple Rhinestone Eagle, then you ought to be thoroughly ashamed of yourself; rectify that immediately. My first encounter…

Telepathy ’12 Areas’ CD/LP/DD 2014

21st March 2014 at 10:35 am

Telepathy

‘12 Areas’ begins with a calm that belies what is to follow. The short intro, ‘{Hypnos}’, suggests a brooding futuristic nightmare with an ambient soundscape of flickers and glitches. This motif is repeated later in the album. Before that, though, drums come suddenly hammering…

Tempel ‘On The Steps Of The Temple’ CD/LP/DD 2014

29th January 2014 at 10:06 am

Tempel

A strange story for a strange band: instrumental duo Temple self-released ‘On The Steps Of The Temple‘ over a year ago, then a little later Prosthetic Records picked them up and the resulting contract did not only leave the band with the new release…
