Venus Sleeps ‘Dead Sun Worship’ CD/DD 2015

9th July 2015 at 6:39 pm

Venus Sleeps

Out of a high pitched, slightly anguished sounding squeal (of the guitar?), one by one the instruments all join in to align and form Dead Sun Whorship, the debut release by Venus Sleeps. Once they do come together though, man, what we got is…

Fórn ‘The Departure Of Consciousness’ LP/DD 2014

25th August 2014 at 10:55 am

Fórn

The Departure of Consciousness is the soundtrack to collapse – the slow, final collapse of a dying relationship, the slow cascade of brick and mortar from a collapsing building or the terrifying claustrophobia of the inward collapse of the human mind, all are evoked…

Tricorn ‘The Walk Of Shame’ CD/DD 2013

25th January 2014 at 10:49 am

Tricorn

No one can honestly say that the underground stoner rock scene isn’t full of uncompromising, hard working and diligent bands. Tricorn emerged in 2010 with their self titled album that was a decent enough stab of noisy rock and roll with some fine songs…

Coffins ‘The Fleshland’ CD/LP/DD 2013

9th July 2013 at 9:23 am

Coffins

Spewing out a slow motion Autopsy since 1996, Coffins have gained a reputable name through a couple of thousand splits and a good knowledge of what is tasteful and what isn’t. Seen as a novelty by some because they’re from Japan (which couldn’t be…

At The Graves ‘Solar’ CD/DD 2012

At The Graves first came to light back in 2008 as a side project to guitarist/vocalist Ben Price’s main band Revolta. Handling all instruments and vocals, he recorded the I and II EPs. Then he recruited bassist Andy Schmidt and drummer Joe Jacklin (both…

Melvins ‘Freak Puke’ CD/LP/DD 2012

31st May 2012 at 2:11 pm

Melvins

The Mevlins, or Melvins-Lite as their press release is dubbing them, are back with their second record of 2012 (easy boys…) and, as the title would suggest, it’s a queasy, freaky beast of an album. The Melvins-Lite moniker heralds the band’s return to being…

Steak ‘Disastronaught’ CDEP/DD 2012

28th May 2012 at 9:54 am

Steak

If you think carefully about the giants of the stoner/desert rock scene – Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Nebula, Karma to Burn, Acrimony – concept records were pretty few and far between. Sure, there was ‘Dopesmoker’, the hour-long ode to Sleep’s mountain of weed and Cathedral…

Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children Of The Knight ‘Going Home’ CD/LP/DD 2012

23rd May 2012 at 8:48 am

Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children Of The Knight

If true musical excellence is to be judged by songwriting ability, then there is no doubt in my mind that Trippy Wicked are one of the best new(ish…) bands releasing records and playing shows at the moment. In a sense, it’s unfortunate that they…

Dopefight / GURT – Split 7″/DD 2012

17th May 2012 at 9:01 am

Dopefight / GURT - Split 7"/DD 2012

My fellow tube train passengers are not impressed. It’s 8.30am on a wet, windy Monday morning and we’re temporarily stuck between stations on London’s busiest underground network. A range of moods meet my glance about the carriage. There’s the “I’m sleepy, let me kid…

Pike ‘To Cross The Great Divide’ CD/DD 2012

14th May 2012 at 8:25 am

Pike

Something smells a bit fishy around here. There must be something in the water. We’re gunna need a bigger boat… Sorry, I just need to gut myself of all the awful fish puns that I could possibly slip into this review, before I begin….
