Uaral ‘Lamentos A Poema Muerto’ CD 2007

8th May 2012 at 12:59 pm

Uaral

The act of mixing genres, once regarded as blasphemy, has become really common nowadays. Two styles of music used particularly often in such a fusion of different worlds are folk and metal. One could describe Uaral (to my knowledge pronounced as oo-areál) as a…

Cortez ‘Thunder In A Forgotten Town’ CD 2007

20th December 2008 at 9:25 am

Cortez

Ever since “Blues For the Red Sun” came riding out of the Californian desert in a dusty Cadillac in 1992 it seems a million bands have dusted off their fuzz boxes, fired up a big assed bowl of weed and jumped on the stoner…

Buried At Sea ‘Ghost’ CD 2007

23rd October 2008 at 9:06 am

Buried At Sea

A distant drum beat, like a faint pulse locked deep inside my aching pineal gland…gradually rising in volume, then sharp and crackling shards of treble soaked guitar creep out…my room goes boom as beautifully full and massive bass and drums, almost worthy of an…

Iron Hearse - S/T - CD 2007

Swindon based power three piece Iron Hearse have achieved a fair amount over the last few years whilst maintaining a pretty low profile and keeping their heads under the radar. This album first emerged on Gallipoli Records in 2006 but has been repackaged and…

Slomatics ‘Kalceanna’ CD 2007

19th September 2008 at 8:45 am

Slomatics

This is a year late review: as you all know we like it slow at TSS. Slomatics are a canny trio of Belfast based Melvinites: David (guitar), Chris (guitar) and Joe (drums and vocals) who, according to the sleeve, are “middle-aged professionals by day,…

Gentlemans Pistols - S/T - CD/LP 2007

Whoa there, hold the phone have I missed something??? I seem to have fallen asleep and woken up in 1973 as that’s the year these guys are living their entire existence. What a luxury that must be for them, they haven’t had to endure…

Acrimony ‘Bong On – Live Long’ CD 2007

17th March 2008 at 8:52 am

Acrimony

A lovely little Acrimony collection on offer here from Japan’s Leafhound Recs. Kicking off with ‘The Acid Elephant EP’, originally released way back when in 1995 by Godhead, these four tracks still sound as cool now as they did then. Next up is ‘Earthchild…

Stuntcock vs The Sontaran Experiment ‘When I Heard You Were Dying…’ CD 2007

20th January 2008 at 9:01 am

Stuntcock vs The Sontaran Experiment

This release is a collaborative split between two of Paul Catten’s (Lazarus Blackstar/Medulla Nocte) latest projects and the first in a new series of output from Future Noise Recordings. Unlistenable to some, pleasurable to others, Stuntcock deal in noise. I rarely listen to this…

Stoke’s instrumental four piece Rise To Thunder have been honing their psychedelic stoner style since Christmas day 2001 and have previously issued a live album as a trio in 2004. Recorded at The Lizard Lounge and the brilliantly monickered Psychedelic Batcave, theses names alone…
