Desertfest 2013 ‘Live In London’ LP 2013

24th February 2014 at 8:53 am

Desertfest 2013

If you weren’t at DesertFest 2013, you missed out on a lot of things. You missed out on Camden’s Black Heart smashing their record for bar takings in a single weekend to sweet smithereens. You missed a volume of beards so vast that London’s…

Black Pussy / Biblical Proof Of UFO’s – Split LP/DD 2013

19th February 2014 at 11:37 am

Black Pussy / Biblical Proof Of UFO’s - Split

Portland ‘Stoner-Pop’ band Black Pussy apparently derived their somewhat controversial name from The Rolling Stones’ ‘Brown Sugar’. The band are adamant it isn’t intended to offend anyone, arguing it represents the rock’n’roll spirit of the 1970s, the decade in which the groovy space rock…

The Asound – S/T – CD/DD 2013

16th February 2014 at 10:10 am

The Asound - S/T

The best thing about writing for The Sleeping Shaman is I get to hear music by bands I’d never heard of before. So far, I’ve enjoyed these new discoveries immensely, and I look forward to more. To The Asound, whose self-titled record is another…

No Gods No Masters – S/T EP – CD/DD 2013

15th February 2014 at 10:32 am

No Gods No Masters - S/T

Having been described as a NOLA infused sludge/doom outfit, my immediate excitement to hear No Gods No Masters‘ 4 song EP was tempered with a bit of skepticism. When one draws comparisons (as in the bio) to such high caliber acts as The Cro-Mags…

Mist – Demo 2013 – CD/DD

14th February 2014 at 10:29 am

Mist - Demo 2013

Mist are an all-female doom band from the beautiful city of Ljubljana, Slovenia. That caught my eye immediately, not only because I don’t know many Slovenian metal bands but I’ve been to their fair city a number of times, and I love it. The…

Lurch – S/T – EP CS/DD 2013

13th February 2014 at 11:30 am

Lurch - S/T

This is a very interesting proposition. Take two nasty Irish sludge/hardcore bands who shared a split back in 2011 (Drainland and Trenches), throw some of their members together in a new band and remove a couple of layers of nihilistic sludge and see what…

Goya ‘777’ LP/DD 2013

Goya

You know that moment when you’re trying to type in some web address pertaining to be a band but you can’t remember the exact wording? Was it the band’s name with ‘metal‘ or ‘doom‘ attached or some other often used form of Facebook page…

Dune ‘Progenitor’ DD 2013

12th February 2014 at 11:06 am

Dune

You know what’s really nice? Pressing that play button and having what you hear instantly put a big fat grin on your big fat face. I’m not talking about knowing, “getting it” self congratulation, nor am I referring to some kind of ironic smirk….

Deathstench / Trepaneringsritualen – Split LP 2013

10th February 2014 at 10:32 am

Deathstench / Trepaneringsritualen - Split

The sound of Deathstench is a blacker-than-black choking miasma, a caustic cocktail of hissing, seething white noise, ice-cold black metal ambience and dark cavernous nocturnal magick that writhes like a sack full of venomous snakes and freezes the blood in the veins. Their boiling…

71TONMAN – S/T – DD 2013

9th February 2014 at 11:36 am

71TONMAN - S/T

So I’m glad to see, and most of all hear, that Poland is producing some really good and heavy doom for us listeners that I can never get enough of. It’s not like Poland already didn’t have some really good acts, but it’s nice…
