Necro Deathmort ‘The Capsule’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:46 pm

Necro Deathmort

Necro Deathmort said it themselves; they don’t give a single fuck. “We’ve stopped caring that each new release might alienate fans of a previous record” is what Matthew Rozeik says on their bandcamp page. That is undoubtedly a big part of what has allowed…

Farflung ‘5’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:35 pm

Farflung

Raging T ‘Radical Reaper’ EP 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:24 pm

Raging T

More T vicar?! Well, it sure does appear that’s what’s in order right now for all those hard rock-loving reverends out there. In between creating yet more of their criminally un-talked-about chunky odes to The Obsessed and Internal Void, two-thirds of Wiltshire-based power doomsters…

Nothing ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:04 pm

Nothing

Philadelphia’s NOTHING are an intriguing prospect. Signed to Relapse who is usually associated with more abrasive types of music, this is an emotional heavy weight contender rather than an ear battering visceral experience. Walking the line between bright shimmering shoe gaze and darker themes,…

Slomatics ‘Future Echo Returns’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 12:34 pm

Slomatics

Gone are the days when I ask “What is Heavy?” and you reply “Black Sabbath”. I mean sure, it’s not that the Brummingham Lords of Our World didn’t define all of the templates nor that they’ve lost much of their oomph even now as…

Ancient Of Days ‘Wretched Ones’ EP CD/DD 2016

24th May 2016 at 6:43 pm

Ancient Of Days

Does anyone remember when bands at least seemed like they were seriously fucking dangerous? Remember that unnerving feeling of being frozen to the spot near the front of the stage at a random, badly attended all-dayer in some dingy, godforsaken venue in some shitty,…
