Harvestman ‘Music For Megaliths’ 2017

18th May 2017 at 6:44 pm

Harvestman

With Harvestman, Neurosis’ Steve Von Till has been exploring a much less bombastic form of music; arboreal, earthy and yet still dark in its own shadowy way. With Music For Monoliths however, he’s moved entirely out of the nocturnal storm clouds and into the…

Necro Deathmort ‘The Capsule’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:46 pm

Necro Deathmort

Necro Deathmort said it themselves; they don’t give a single fuck. “We’ve stopped caring that each new release might alienate fans of a previous record” is what Matthew Rozeik says on their bandcamp page. That is undoubtedly a big part of what has allowed…

17th May 2016 at 7:19 pm

Alaric

Alaric is probably most known for the sacking of Rome in the fifth century. Those were dark times. The namesake of the Visigoth king is a dark punk band from Oakland, who’ve just released an album that I for one can’t stop listening to….

Amenra ‘Alive’ CD/LP 2016

5th May 2016 at 6:42 pm

Amenra

A spiritual successor to their 2009 Afterlife EP, Alive sees Belgium’s mysterious purveyors of post-doom/sludge Amenra once more bare their collective soul by paring things back to the bare bones. Comprising ten acoustic tracks, some reimagining their own material, some approaching that of others,…

Chelsea Wolfe ‘Abyss’ CD/LP/DD 2015

11th August 2015 at 6:53 pm

Chelsea Wolfe

For months now Chelsea Wolfe has been teasing fans one track at a time about what to expect on her fifth full-length album Abyss. If Iron Moon and Carrion Flowers were anything to go by, it was obvious she’d discovered the gain knob on…

Årabrot ‘I Modi’ LP/DD 2014

10th November 2014 at 8:22 am

Årabrot

If I had a single cap as impressive as any amongst the vast array adorning Kjetil Nernes’ hat stand (so far I’ve seen him rock a wide-brimmed vueltiao, a casual fedora and even what appeared to be a horned foxskin) I would most graciously…

Necro Deathmort ‘EP2’ LP/DD 2014

29th October 2014 at 10:51 am

Necro Deathmort

Most Holy Death ‘Death Knell’ DD 2014

12th July 2014 at 9:18 am

Most Holy Death

The band Most Holy Death is just one dude (or girl, I’m judging by the vocals). In the dining room of an apartment of the band member this record was created. A grim and dreadful dining room it must be if we check out…
