General ‘Where Are Your Gods Now’ CD/DD 2012

Catacomb Records is not the most prolific label with only a small handful of releases to show for their five year history. Unlike some labels they don’t operate a scattergun approach to releases a shed load of stuff to see what sticks preferring to…

Alunah ‘Call Of Avernus’ CD 2010

11th February 2011 at 9:04 am

Alunah

Alunah have always split opinion right down the middle. Like Marmite people either seem to love or hate these Midlands based fuzz monsters. Personally I’ve always loved their knack for writing catchy yet heavy tunes and admire their incredible work ethic which sees them…

Grifter

Aluna ‘Fall To Earth’ CDEP 2008

15th August 2008 at 8:53 am

Aluna
