Widows ‘Raise The Monolith’ CDEP 2010

9th July 2010 at 8:56 am

Widows

Widows are DEFINITELY here to rock our faces off. The Nottingham-based hooligans play it like they mean it across all four tracks of this, their debut release, and rock out HARD. Quite possibly with their cocks out. It’s hard to tell just by listening….

Wight ‘Through The Woods Into Deep Water’ CD/LP 2012

30th August 2012 at 8:56 am

Wight ‘Through The Woods Into Deep Water’ CD/LP 2012

It’s good to be surprised by a band every so often, particularly when you’re, as I am by this point, a bit of a jaded old hack. Case in point being Wight, a band that would have passed me by at first glance coming…

Wiht ‘The Harrowing Of The North’ CD 2011

7th September 2011 at 8:33 am

Wiht

Conceptual art and music can often make for a delicate balancing act; Not only does the sonic delivery have to transcend the subject matter, but the whole forming of the idea have to be executed with subtly and intelligence. Let’s face it, take your…

Wild Rocket ‘Geomagnetic Hallucinations’ LP/DD 2014

23rd December 2014 at 10:04 am

Wild Rocket

Dropping out of warp drive just long enough to beam out an urgent transmission, Dublin astro’nauts Wild Rocket set the controls for the heart of the sun, make like a fiery phoenix and go full-blown supernova on this, their debut album. Straight out of…

Wilderness Hymnal ‘Transmutation’ CD/DD 2014

18th July 2014 at 9:47 am

Wilderness Hymnal

Piano doom. Those are not two words that in all honesty I expected to write at any point this year in a consecutive manner, but there’s a first time for everything. It’s not like we can’t be having smashy smashy drums and woarghhhhh guitars…

Windhand ‘Grief’s Infernal Flower’ CD/LP/DD 2015

2nd October 2015 at 6:56 pm

Windhand

Windhand have been responsible for two of modern doom’s finest records in the past few years; their bewitching debut and their megalithic Soma, which I still hold up high as THE best doom record by a new band in years. Their dense, Electric Wizard…

Windhand

If you’ve not heard of Richmond, Virginia’s Windhand then you’ve probably been living under a rock for the last three years. From an intriguing practice space demo to last year’s critically acclaimed Soma (their second album), Windhand have literally had the wind beneath their…

Windhand ‘Soma’ CD/LP/DD 2013

19th September 2013 at 8:58 am

Windhand

For a band’s promotional blurb to claim that the album you are about to listen to is, on its surface, a “top 5 of all time doom record” you cannot help but feel a sense of cynicism and label hyperbole creeping in. When the…

Windhand – ST – CD 2011

1st October 2011 at 9:08 am

Windhand – ST – CD 2011

If you’re here then there’s a pretty good chance that you are (at the very least) familiar with a little-known band called Black Sabbath. Some of you may even own a few of their records. Others of you may have even been inspired enough…
