22nd August 2014 at 11:07 am

Funerary

Funerary are still relatively unknown, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t talented. In fact, the underground has always been a place full of exciting talents a lot of people aren’t aware of. Thanks to the Internet, its now easier to discover and explore them….

Ommadon ‘V’ LP/DD 2014

30th July 2014 at 9:46 am

Ommadon

Monolithic ur-doom-drone druidic duo Ommadon have been engaged on a monomaniacal quest to melt solid stone, liquefy internal organs and vibrate this entire world out of phase and into an adjacent dimension utilising only drums, amps and a singular guitar over the course of…

Gog - S/T

Spaced-out, ominous and blacker-than-black, one-man event horizon expolaration unit Gog has been cracking open our soft fragile eggshell minds for the past twelve years now and mainman Michael Bjella seems hellbent on inflicting night terrors upon our collective dreamscape for at least another twelve…if…

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…

Offerstigen ‘Solens Inälvor’ Digital EP 2014

6th July 2014 at 9:23 am

Offerstigen

So this band is obscure beyond obscurity. The only facts I can figure out about them is that they’re Swedish, they’re called Offerstigen (means something like “path of sacrifice / offering” in English) but the band name also seems to be the actual physical…

Clouds Taste Satanic ‘To Sleep Beyond The Earth’ CD/DD 2014

29th June 2014 at 11:56 am

Clouds Taste Satanic

Clouds Taste Satanic hail from Brooklyn, New York. Some members apparently were in a “post rock” group. They have one of the coolest band names ever, and I love this record! To Sleep Beyond The Earth is the debut recording for Clouds Taste Satanic,…

Galg ‘Monochroom’ Digital EP 2014

21st June 2014 at 9:42 am

Galg

The Dutch formation Galg will be playing Incubate this year and that is all thanks to their excellent sounding dark doom. According to their bio they are happy people, just putting all negativity in their music. That negativity is a lot then, since the…

Ambarchi, O

Although better known for his collaborative efforts with Southern Lord’s Greg Anderson as the co-founder of prolific doom drone outfit Sunn O))), Stephen O’Malley has been forging his own version of ‘metal‘ for nearly 20 years; anyone who gives more than a casual glance…

Boris ‘Noise’ CD/LP/DD 2014

17th June 2014 at 9:11 am

Boris

Boris fans certainly get their money’s worth from the prolific, shapeshifting Japanese band. Their constant refusal to be pigeon-holed means that theirs is a discography from which you can pick and choose your own identity for the band, and the surprising thing is that…

Skinwalker ‘Abyss’ Digital EP 2014

15th June 2014 at 1:41 pm

Skinwalker

Skinwalker are a drone/ doom band from the US. They make occult music, inspired by all things paranormal and that was something that I find very compelling. I have taken my time digesting this album and I’ll take you along on my findings. The…
