Carousel ‘2113’ CD/LP/DD 2015

17th September 2015 at 7:24 pm

Carousel

There’s no denying that retro rock is very de rigueur right now. There is no shortage of bands who looking back to the 70’s rock heyday with rose tinted spectacles and seeking to emulate the sounds of a time when heavy rock was new,…

Dr CRAZY ‘1000 Guitars’ DD 2015

7th August 2015 at 7:04 pm

Dr CRAZY

Say, ever wondered what that large letter ‘R’ in a circle is doing painted on the front of your driveway these days? Why, that’s the space permanently reserved for your ROFLcopter good Sir/Ma’am and guess what, vocalist Andreas ‘Mazz’ Mazzereth (Groan, Ratz Ass, Trebuchet,…

Royal Thunder ‘Crooked Doors’ CD/LP/DD 2015

6th July 2015 at 6:43 pm

Royal Thunder

Three years ago, when they released their debut album, the critically acclaimed CVI, Royal Thunder were hailed as one of the most exciting up-and-coming bands of this generation, because they did not fit into any particular category: Metal? Soul? Blues? More like all the…

Switchblade Jesus – S/T – CD/DD 2015

5th July 2015 at 12:58 pm

Switchblade Jesus - S/T

Tejas. It’s been my experiences that not only can a person tell when shit is from Texas, but that Texans like it that way. Usually, it’s crap that’s real friggin’ big too. Giant steak platters, vast deserts, and a highway long enough to have…

Groan ‘Highrospliffics’ DD 2015

14th June 2015 at 2:02 pm

Groan

Groan’s new stoned out release Highrospliffics harkens to a kind punkish, anthem-calling, but metal, pre-genre label mess. I say it’s a mess in a good way, though. I saw, or heard, this as a call back to the old, early 80s UK metal. At…

Galley Beggar ‘Silence & Tears’ CD/LP/DD 2015

7th June 2015 at 2:02 pm

Galley Beggar

LOVE LOVE LOVE this fucking thing!  Galley Beggar’s new release, Silence & Tears is good, real good. Now, for you young metallers, it may not be your cup of tea…yet. I say that because this is quite a departure from what you’re probably used…

Desert Storm ‘Omniscient’ CD/DD 2015

24th May 2015 at 1:29 pm

Desert Storm

Tough and gruff Oxford rockers Desert Storm have been kicking up a, er storm in recent times having supported hard hitting instrumental stoner band Karma To Burn, Nashville Pussy and ripped up London’s annual DesertFest, (rubbing shoulders with the likes of Sleep along the…

Mothership ‘Mothership II’ CD/LP/DD 2014

16th December 2014 at 11:41 am

Mothership

First off, man, I gotta say, I dig this mother, I really really dig this mother mother.  This Mothership II album by Mothership.  This BallsOut-Absolute-StonedOut-Late 60s-70s-Fuzzbox-Psychedelic-Fantasy-Metal.  Not a real genre, yeah, but I was trying to sort of concisely think of things to sum…

Slow Season ‘Mountains’ CD/LP/DD 2014

11th December 2014 at 10:52 am

Slow Season

Volcom liked them so much, they put Slow Season in their new commercial. The band from California is pretty much loved by anyone it seems and rightly so, for they make a nice little bit of psychedelic rock on their new album Mountains. We’re…

Stubb ‘Cry Of The Ocean’ CD/LP/DD 2014

19th November 2014 at 11:16 am

Stubb

As a passionate fan of stoner rock, the problem with writing for The Sleeping Shaman is that I don’t tend to review albums I dislike. As such, when the occasional record really stands out from the crowd as phenomenal, it’s very difficult to stress…
