Godflesh ‘Decline & Fall’ CDEP/12″/DD 2014

29th May 2014 at 11:25 am

Godflesh

There’s usually a bit of trepidation going in to listen to something like this. The pessimist in all of us was brought out when Carcass announced ‘Surgical Steel’, and was then promptly silenced when we actually heard it and realised that, shock and horror,…

Sealclubber ‘Sticky River’ CDEP/DD 2013

4th February 2014 at 11:56 am

Sealclubber

Sealclubber. Let’s just consider that for a second. Seal. Clubber. What do you honestly expect a band with that name to sound like? Black Country homeboys Sealclubber dropped a 2-track EP a while back on Witch Hunter Records – a taste-maker for some time…

Mr Greedy – S/T – CDEP/DD 2013

4th December 2013 at 9:29 am

Mr Greedy - EP

Why the fuck are there only 4 tracks on this EP. I understand it’s an EP but why taunt us with 4 songs of some of the most amazing stoner grunge my ears have come across in a long time. Mr Greedy are a…

Kuolemanlaakso ‘Musta Aurinko Nousee’ CDEP/12″ 2013

24th November 2013 at 9:51 am

Kuolemanlaakso

Despite its success in their native Finland and overall genre-humping madness, last year’s debut from death-doom voyagers Kuolemanlaakso flew under the radar for most. Adding broad splatters of black metal and thrash to its slow, grisly miasmas, it was a perversely fun listen. Even…

Three Thrones – S/T – CDEP/DD 2012

21st July 2013 at 9:27 am

Three-Thrones-ST

Three Thrones are a three-piece instrumental stoner-sludge band from Colchester. They formed back in 2011, and since then have gigged relentlessly both locally and further afield, carefully honing their riff-driven craft. They recently came back from a European tour with fellow Essex instrumentalists Telepathy,…

Gurt ‘Hoboreaper’ CDEP/DD 2013

29th June 2013 at 9:07 am

Gurt

Remember the heady days of CD singles when you’d buy a copy of a track you already owned just to hear the not-really-worth-it remix or a couple of live tracks recorded somewhere you’d never heard of? London filth merchants Gurt sure do. Their latest…

Raedon Kong – S/T – CDEP/DD 2013

6th March 2013 at 8:54 am

Raedon Kong - S/T

Wow. Purveyors of cosmic woe Raedon Kong are one of those bands you come across every once in a while that have the gift of sounding both familiar and strangely unique. Including former members of Collapsar and The Icepick Revival, this new duo is…

Opium Lord ‘The Calendrical Cycle – Prologue: The Healer’ CDEP/DD 2013

13th February 2013 at 8:43 am

Opium Lord

I’ve been doing this reviewing schtick for T’Shaman for a few years now, wading through wave upon wave, pile upon pile, of promo downloads and physical discs for what seems like an endless conveyor belt of the same three or four variations on ‘heavy’…

The Earls Of Mars ‘The Skies Are Falling!’ CDEP/DD 2012

25th January 2013 at 8:59 am

The Earls Of Mars

The twisted brain-wrong of one-off man-mental Harry Armstrong (ex-Decomposed, ex-Hangnail and current End Of Level Boss mainman), aided and abetted by a shadowy cadre of unknown – well, unknown to me anyway – wrong’uns, The Earls Of Mars are, after careful consideration and deep…
