Valley Of The Sun ‘Volume Rock’ CD/LP/DD 2016

20th April 2016 at 6:13 pm

Valley Of The Sun

Cincinnati, Ohio’s own Valley of the Sun have a new record coming out on the Swedish Fuzzorama Records and it’s called Volume Rock. I’m a thirty-six year old man and few words get me as excited as “volume” and “rock.”  If I had a…

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell ‘Isobelle’ 7” 2016

14th February 2016 at 2:00 pm

Admiral Sir Cloudeseley Shovell

It’s impossible not to love Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell. It doesn’t matter that these two tracks sound like a lost recording of some obscure 1973 band who played 15 gigs before breaking up, getting jobs never to be heard of again. It doesn’t matter…

Peace Killers – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2016

2nd February 2016 at 6:50 pm

Peace Killers - S/T

When a band’s bio claims that a band have a combined 40 years in the Sacramento punk and hardcore scene I will take a sideways glance at them and raise an eyebrow…this could be interesting I think to myself being a lover of things…

Chron Goblin ‘Backwater’ CD/LP/DD 2015

24th December 2015 at 4:00 pm

Chron Goblin

All right, let’s get one thing out of the way:  Chron Goblin offer nothing new, nothing that hasn’t been done before. However, even though they lack originality, they are simply perfect for anyone who enjoys loud guitars, pounding drums and a good old rock’n’roll…

Wizards Of Firetop Mountain - S/T

Esteemed Shaman Editor: “Hey Ollie, would you like to review the new one from Wizards Of Firetop Mountain?” Me: “Who?” Esteemed Shaman Editor: “Wizards Of Firetop Mountain…you might like them” OK, it may not have happened exactly like that but it’s not far off….

Mansion ‘Altar Sermon’ 12″/DD 2015

17th December 2015 at 7:07 pm

Mansion

I’ve been a fan of Finland’s creepy Kartonistic Christian cult pop doomers Mansion since 2013’s debut We Shall Live EP. Now at the tail-end of 2015 we have their fourth offering, the Altar Sermon EP, and for what we are about to receive may…

Jess And The Ancient Ones ‘Second Psychedelic Coming: The Aquarius Tapes’ CD/LP/DD 2015

19th November 2015 at 8:44 pm

Jess And The Ancient Ones

The ‘occult rock’ tag has been thrown around a fair few times over the last five years; in 2015 the term, perhaps thankfully, has not been quite so popular. With bands like Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats, Witchcraft and Ghost B.C enjoying mass popularity,…

DoctoR DooM ‘This Seed We Have Sown’ CD/LP/DD 2015

4th October 2015 at 1:50 pm

DoctoR DooM

Initial impressions just looking at this album, with a name like DoctoR DooM and the shadowy figures on the cover, you might think you’re in for some sort of titanic, occult doom style nonsense…and the first minute and a half when you stick this…

Kadavar ‘Berlin’ CD/LP/DD 2015

21st September 2015 at 7:00 pm

Kadavar 'Berlin'

German stoner/prog proto-metallers Kadavar have been running an unofficial campaign for world ‘flower-power’ domination since they arrived on the scene with 2012’s self titled debut; pulling from a kick ass rock n’ roll grab bag with amped up tentacles, they’ve crafted a sound equal…
