The Heads ‘Burning Up With… Live At Roadburn 2015’ LP/DD 2016

4th May 2016 at 5:54 pm

The Heads

In some ways it’s pretty weird to be holding the vinyl of a live show you actually attended. I mean, sure, it’s a good kinda weird but I don’t know, you remember things differently than they felt in that warm, dark, beer-n-smoke-in-hand moment than…

3rd May 2016 at 6:09 pm

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare - S/T

Scott Kelly (he of Neurosis fame) and Sandford Parker (Buried At Sea) have clearly enjoyed working together on the Corrections House albums and found themselves with an over abundance of creativity from these sessions that has left a further itch to scratch. As a…

Wolvserpent ‘Aporia:Kāla:Ananta’ CD/LP/DD 2016

3rd May 2016 at 6:04 pm

Wolvserpent

Idaho duo Wolvserpent have been slowly developing their brand of tar-black doom over a number of years, always standing out from the crowd of riff-wranglers through their haunting use of Brittany McConnell’s violin and, well, by being a duo! I’m happy to admit that…

Roadburn Festival 2016 – Afterburner Review By Guido Segers

27th April 2016 at 6:11 pm

Roadburn 2016 - Afterburner - Day #4

It’s been a blast, this Roadburn, but it always hurts to see people go home and the Het Patronaat packing up. You want to somehow tell the workers that there’s a bit more of the festival left and maybe they can just leave the…

Graves At Sea ‘The Curse That Is’ CD/LP/DD 2016

27th April 2016 at 6:04 pm

Graves At Sea

With its eclectic, eco-friendly vibe, Portland, OR’s earth-centered urbania meets hipster-hippie chic has made it ripe for satirical comedo-drama (check Portlandia), but its cooler, more sinister underbelly hides some of the best and most vicious secrets. Note the front of any vintage Sunn amplifier…

Roadburn Festival 2016 – Day 3 Review By Guido Segers

26th April 2016 at 6:14 pm

Roadburn 2016 - Day #3

On the third day of Roadburn, the weary feeling of the day before still lingers on many sleepy faces when the festival opens up. It’s a 24/7 thing to be at Roadburn and why would you sleep if you can have fun? With Converge,…

Beastmaker ‘Lusus Naturae’ CD/LP/DD 2016

26th April 2016 at 6:05 pm

Beastmaker

The Sabbath tree of life extends its familiar branches yet again, and somehow our undying love for the arguable originators of doom allows our ears to perk at the slight chance that a new band might just crack the code without cloning the blueprint…

Horse Latitudes ‘Primal Gnosis’ CD/LP/DD 2016

26th April 2016 at 5:59 pm

Horse Latitudes

The band may have taken their name from a Doors song as there are little psychedelic elements to the nerve wrecking drone doom Horse Latitudes produces and after three years of silence, the group returns with a new record titled Primal Gnosis. Come join…

Boris With Merzbow ‘Gensho’ CD/LP/DD 2016

25th April 2016 at 5:39 pm

Boris With Merzbow

Gensho is a collaboration album, or rather it is two separate albums which the auditor is advised “are intended to be played at the same time at varying volumes so that the listener can experience their own “gensho/phenomenon” every time”. 50% of Gensho (one…
