Charybdis – Demo – CD/DD 2015

15th July 2015 at 7:37 pm

Charybdis - Demo - 2015

Some musicians are content to play out their entire careers with one band, or even just as a solo project. Others of course are greedy band hoarders – playing in four at a time, practising eighteen times a week and eventually metamorphosing each into…

V A I L S – Demo 2014 – DD

29th November 2014 at 1:16 pm

V A I L S - Demo 2014

Now, if there are two words which, when put together, immediately begin to tickle my musical pickle, it’s the sizzling, wham-bam combination of “two-piece” and “sludge”. So when former Prosperina bassist/vocalist Owen Street kindly sent word that he had teamed up with Matthew Ham…

14th February 2014 at 10:29 am

Mist - Demo 2013

Mist are an all-female doom band from the beautiful city of Ljubljana, Slovenia. That caught my eye immediately, not only because I don’t know many Slovenian metal bands but I’ve been to their fair city a number of times, and I love it. The…

Legion Of Andromeda – Demo 2013

Legion Of Andromeda - Demo 2013

There’s something wrong with Legion Of Andromeda. There has to be. There’s no way that this demo could’ve been put together by normal, run of the mill musicians. This is a dirty, nihilistic, twisted piece of sludgy death metal, with cavernous vocals and a…

Barbarian Fist – Demo 2013

Barbarian Fist - Demo 2013

I will be the first to admit that I can be rather shallow and one dimensional when I want to be. As much as I try not to be, I find myself more and more being one of those ‘I know what I like,…

Jøtnarr - Demo 2013

When approaching a demo for a first listen, reading the words “Recorded in our rehearsal space […] using two mics straight into a tape player” is enough to make anyone wonder what the quality is going to be like. When that demo belongs to…

Mammoth Storm – Demo 2013

Mammoth Storm - Demo 2013

If you laughed at Jim Carrey’s ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective’ for attempting to slow dance through the hordes of people at that Cannibal Corpse concert, you might want to suggest to him Mammoth Storm. Something slow and sludgy might be easier to dance to…….

Haoma - Demo 2013

Haoma are a Swedish two piece consisting of Hozomeen on Interstellar Thunderstorms and Obelisk (nope, not Asterix’s fat ginger mate) on Bass Quakes and Drones. Thankfully they have the chops to back up the description. Hopefully this wont stay stuck at the demo stage…

Coltsblood ‘Beyond The Lake Of Madness’ Demo CS/DD 2013

19th July 2013 at 9:46 am

Coltsblood

This self released demo of filthy black metal tinged sludge doom goodness by Coltsblood had me hooked instantly through my sweaty headphones on a summer’s eve even though it evokes visions of the dark lurking in the shadows on a winter’s night rather than…
