Se Delan ‘Drifter’ CD/LP/DD 2016

19th May 2016 at 7:03 pm

Se Delan

So, you’ve laid waste to countless ears with Iron Monkey, had an in-one-door-out-the-next tenure in Electric Wizard and then basically learned all the instruments to become the seed-capital of Cripple Black Phoenix…where next? Well, if you’re Justin Greaves then you invoke the subtle ghosts…

18th May 2016 at 6:53 pm

Dälek

Congratulations, you might be reading the very first review of a hip-hop album on The Sleeping Shaman. We can’t help it, we dig the sound of Dälek, because it rocks harder than many bands with guitars. Let’s check out their latest effort titled Asphalt…

Godflesh - Desertfest London 2016

Well, here we go. It’s time to dust off the cobwebs for the third and final time today for Sunday at Desertfest 2016. *Sniffles* Still, there’s only so many days a guy can live on beer, coffee and fried chicken alone and the wear…

Alaric ‘End Of Mirrors’ CD/LP/CS/DD 2016

17th May 2016 at 7:19 pm

Alaric

Alaric is probably most known for the sacking of Rome in the fifth century. Those were dark times. The namesake of the Visigoth king is a dark punk band from Oakland, who’ve just released an album that I for one can’t stop listening to….

Astral Kannibals: Desertfest 2016 Day 2 Review

16th May 2016 at 7:33 pm

Slomatics - Desertfest London 2016

“It’s a little bit fuzzy… this feeling in my headddddd…” It’s a good kind of fuzzy though and for sure, it’s only likely to get even fuzzier with a line-up looking like today’s does. After a leisurely coffee and a well overdue catch up…

Davie Allan / Joel Grind – Split – 10″/CD/DD 2016

16th May 2016 at 7:21 pm

Davie Allan / Joel Grind - Split

“Of course it does, hahaha!”. This is my first thought when Davie Allan’s new jam, Recycled Too crunches in with motorcycles blasting and a big fat, snarling, fuzzed out riff. It’s been this way for 50 years, why bother changing that shit now? It…

13th May 2016 at 7:27 pm

Corrosion Of Conformity - Desertfest London 2016

Well that’s hangover number one successfully secured, thanks Slabdragger. But hey there’s nothing a couple of coffees, a cooked breakfast and getting back down to The Black Heart to get wristbanded up and relubricated in time for today’s proceedings can’t solve. With stoner legends…

Sonic Wolves ‘He Said’ 7″/DD 2016

13th May 2016 at 7:16 pm

Sonic Wolves

The sun-drenched vineyards and sleepy villages of Northern Italy’s Piedmont region are hardly renowned for producing quality heavy music, but for well over a decade now, Ufomammut’s psychotropic brand of space-doom has put the city of Alessandria on the map. Featuring Ufomammut’s own Vito…

Desertfest 2016 Pre-Party

It’s here. Again. We all know it, we all love it but we’re also fully aware that mine and the Shaman Lee’s life for the next four days is going to be as frantic as it is unforgettable. Desertfest has proudly hit its fifth…

Baklavaa ‘Dane On’ CD/CS/DD 2016

12th May 2016 at 7:04 pm

Baklavaa

I’m a sucker for a good bit of noise rock. There’s something so appealing about the juxtaposition of the ugly and the beautiful in music that makes bands such as Sonic Youth, Shellac and The Jesus Lizard as popular as they are. One of…
