Sloath ‘Deep Mountain’ LP/DD 2014

7th January 2015 at 11:48 am

Sloath

Stoner metal is a genre thrown around a bit freely, in my opinion – if a band is really tight, really together, really clean – well, it doesn’t fit the genre descriptor, y’know? You can have as many bad weed references in your song…

Latitude Egress ‘To Take Up the Cross’ CD/DD 2014

14th December 2014 at 10:38 am

Latitude Egress

Like a woman making a dress entirely out of used paper plates, like a particularly passionate man constructing a car entirely from tax receipts, you would best describe To Take Up The Cross as being an album that is clearly very dedicated to what…

Lotus Thief ‘Rervm’ CD/LP/DD 2014

3rd December 2014 at 10:28 am

Lotus Thief

I don’t really have a nice introductory paragraph so let’s just state this straight out: Lotus Thief shouldn’t work but it does, and it really really works. Post black metal + mum doom + The Gathering? Sounds like a particularly awful, difficult marriage but…

Usnea ‘Random Cosmic Violence’ CD/LP/CS/DD 2014

11th November 2014 at 11:25 am

Usnea

In the same vein of perhaps Ocean’s Here Where Nothing Grows, Torture Circle, Aldebaran, Buried At Sea, early, less-bad Moss etc., Usnea are a pretty rad throwback to those halcyon days of the mid/late 2000’s where it seemed every second metal band was slowing…

White Hills ‘Glitter Glamour Atrocity’ CD/LP/DD Reissue 2014

10th October 2014 at 12:27 pm

White Hills

Gotta admit, when the press release about White Hills came out with a bunch of talking about the evils of Bush Jr. it was hard not to roll my eyes a little. Not that he was a good president (he was shit), just that…

Conan / Yanomamo & More – Armageddoom II @ Rosemount Hotel, Perth 05/09/2014

29th September 2014 at 9:44 am

Armageddoom II 2014

A long festival, especially after you’ve gotten up at 4am, worked all day etc. is not always the best of things. Armageddoom, however, was one of the best of things. I didn’t see every band – I had pints to see, friends to ..drink?…

3rd Ear Experience ‘Incredible Good Fortune’ CD/DD 2014

6th September 2014 at 11:11 am

3rd Ear Experience

We’ve all had those glory moments with music – it’s why you’re reading this, it’s why I’m writing this – in that hope we find more. That first time you heard Ride The Lightning. That one day when I first heard Panopticon on the…

Bild ‘OOBE’ DD 2014

26th August 2014 at 10:30 am

Bild

New Swans with a Cult of Luna-ish production and feel to it. That’s the review, let’s all go home! Honestly, if that description excites you then just go and get this thing, but for those who insist on some more meat, very well: Bild…

Kikagaku Moyo ‘Mammatus Clouds’ LP/DD 2014

19th August 2014 at 9:49 am

Kikagaku Moyo

For me, Japanese psychedelia is one of those genres where my taste is, admittedly, a little undiscerning- if it’s competent I’ll love it, if it’s in the top 10% of the genre, I’ll abuse the shit out of it. Time will tell whether Kikagaku…

Deep Space Destructors ‘III’ CD/DD 2014

13th August 2014 at 10:54 am

Deep Space Destructors

I’m forever looking for new space rock in the hope it sounds like Ozric Tentacles… But apparently I’m cursed to be forever finding only Hawkwind clones. This more of an observation than a complaint though- Hawkwind are good, and Deep Space Destructors are also…
