Dead Feathers – S/T – 10”/DD 2016

28th February 2016 at 11:49 am

Dead Feathers – S/T

MAKE

Anyone familiar with Chapel Hill, NC’s ‘surface scene’ is probably aware of its longstanding history of American conservatism gift wrapped with Southern ‘charm’ and ‘old money’; despite this pervasive vibe, pockets of rebellion exist – music venues like the Local 506 and Cat’s Cradle,…

6th September 2015 at 12:14 pm

AHAB

The nautical lords of doom have returned with another aquatic album filled with masterful music. Taking the time to let songs find their own stream is a specialty of these Germans, which could be heard on their 2012 epos The Giant. Three years later…

Skepticism

Regarded as one of the pioneers of the infamous funeral doom genre, Skepticism has a long history of making heavy as fuck music at the slowest possible pace. The band has been around for almost 25 years and strikes a chord again with new…

Callisto

If you could ever tag a band as explorers, then the Finnish metal collective of Callisto are traversing arctic tundras and expansive mountains people dare to dream of as we speak. Simply not content with sticking to a conventional weapon range, their output has…

26th December 2014 at 11:31 am

Ghast

Crawling from their fetid nest in darkest Swansea, outlying the blighted Monmouthshire landscape claimed by Machen and Howard as home to races of degenerate inhuman reptilian throwbacks and the awful ‘little people’ of legend, Ghast have finally braved the burning sunlight to deliver a…
