Unearthly Trance ‘Stalking The Ghost’ 2017

15th May 2017 at 6:42 pm

Unearthly Trance

I first heard Unearthly Trance on their 2009 split 10” with Swedish doomers Suma, but the New York trio have been around since 2000. The band officially called it a day in 2012, all three members – bassist Jay Newman, guitarist/vocalist Ryan Lipynsky, and…

Up from the cold dark depths comes New York hatemongers Unearthly Trance with their latest misanthropic opus ‘Trident’. Each track on this release is a dark and twisted journey, with a new level in song writing being attained by the band. The CD begins…

Unearthly Trance

The three horsemen of the great unveiling known as the apocalypse emerge from the depths of the abyss for the fifth time to unleash another dire proclamation of doom upon mankind, and, well, it ain’t pretty. Unearthly Trance are emphatically NOT a band to…

Unearthly Trance / Ramesses - Split 10" 2009

Raise your fucking fist aloft and make the Devil sign, you down-trodden dog – show your love for the dark metal sludge of Beelzebub and his stinking screaming minions – this is your only salvation – blaze up a broad cigarette filled with dried…

Unmothered – S/T – 12″ 2013

20th September 2013 at 9:58 am

Unmothered - S/T

Unmothered has surprised me, I was expecting a maelstrom of doom laden guitars and other such nonsense, but what I actually got was a reason to keep listening. From the opening track ‘Gravitons’ you are lulled into believing you are about to enter that…

Bulgaria. Not a country that is well known for its metal in the rest of the world. However, there are some ghoulish devils crawling about in the shadow of the iron curtain! UPYR hail from Sofia and with their self-released album they raise the…

5th September 2010 at 8:58 am

US Christmas

US Christmas ‘The Valley Path’ CD 2011

15th July 2011 at 8:58 am

US Christmas

These crazy hillbillies have been at the Fly Agaric again. USX first came to my attention via the gorgeous Hawkwind tribute put out by Neurot last year. I was struck by their incredible covers of Hawkwind classics that were executed with such care and…

8th July 2014 at 8:09 am

USA Out Of Vietnam

Aurora Borealis have a good track record when it comes to pushing originality and are clearly not afraid to put out some truly challenging and left of centre releases. From the ultra-raw black metal oddities of Wolfmangler and Dead Ravens Choir to the more…

Usko

In these tragic days of the disposable digital download, artists have to come up with increasingly novel ways to get people to pay attention to their physical product. As such we have seen a resurgence in vinyl offerings and even fan pack magazines including…
