5th July 2017 at 3:14 pm

Dos Malés - EP 2016

When I first heard that Mike ‘Muleboy’ Makela of Bongzilla had a new side project early 2016, I’ll openly admit I was a little anxious to hear it in case it didn’t quite match up to his primary band’s musical output, of which I…

Cough ‘Still They Prey’ 2016

10th May 2017 at 7:00 pm

Cough

The first thing that strikes you about the latest offering from Virginian stoner doom outfit Cough‘s latest album, Still They Prey, is the production. Comparisons with producer Jus Oborn’s seminal doom-mongers Electric Wizard and their psychedelic rumbling sound are obvious – Oborn’s distinctive guitar…

-(16)- ‘Lifespan Of A Moth’ 2016

9th May 2017 at 6:49 pm

-(16)-

Before beginning this review, let me admit something to my shame: I had never heard of -(16)- before listening to Lifespan of a Moth. I am very glad that my days of dreadful ignorance are over. Lifespan Of A Moth is a heavyweight addition…

Melvins ‘Basses Loaded’ 2016

9th May 2017 at 6:31 pm

Melvins

(The) Melvins are, and have been for a long, long time now, Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover. Everyone else just kind of rolls in and out from album to tour to next album in a very fluid way. Basses Loaded takes that to a…

Bright Curse ‘Before The Shore’ 2016

8th May 2017 at 6:52 pm

Bright Curse

Talent comes in a great many forms, musical talent at least. Quite often, it bubbles and brews over time; a band kicks a few amps into shape in someone’s garage or spare room until a decent set of songs is in place, gigs a…

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

I don’t think NASA realizes we’ve been manning missions to Mars since the early nineties – at least where Farflung’s concerned, we’ve had an anthropological (if they even are human) boot firmly trenched in that part of the galaxy only fit for highbrow, esoteric…

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…
