Author & Punisher ‘Melk En Honing’ CD/LP/DD 2015

19th June 2015 at 6:32 pm

Author & Punisher

With 2010’s Drone Machines album, San Diego’s Author & Punisher, aka Tristan Shone, challenged the landscape of Industrial, Doom and Drone music. Part performance art, part revolutionary approach to making music, the concept of this nightmarish cyborg one man band played out in alien…

Necro Deathmort ‘EP2’ LP/DD 2014

29th October 2014 at 10:51 am

Necro Deathmort

Necro Deathmort are Londoners AJ Cookson and Matthew Rozeik. Together they create electronic music which defies pigeon-holing; it’s heavy, it’s droney, it has big beats, sometimes there are guitars, sometimes there are screams… I’ve seen them described somewhere as Sunn O))) meets Apex Twin…

Dead Fader ‘Scorched’ LP 2014

26th May 2014 at 12:17 pm

Dead Fader

I’ve got a friend big into electronic music who’s often playing stuff in his car with the aim of getting me into it. Dark and dense drum ‘n’ bass usually, with the idea of “if you like metal, you’ll definitely like this”- kinda how…

Dead Fader ‘Blood Forest’ LP/DD 2014

21st May 2014 at 10:06 am

Dead Fader

Though not the sort of thing normally seen gracing the hallowed pages of The Sleeping Shaman, Dead Fader‘s ‘Blood Forest‘ is an interesting experiment in electronic music. One half of a two-album release (the other being ‘Scorched’), it is overwhelmingly disorientating. Dizzying sounds, weird…

Empty Flowers ‘The Air You Found’ CD 2014

8th February 2014 at 11:03 am

Empty Flowers

From what I can tell, no one really likes remixes (this isn’t going to be a hugely negative review, so stick with me). Ask the average person on the street their opinion and it’ll likely be negative, and fair enough; does anyone really like…

Cult Of Luna ‘Vertikal II’ CDEP/DD 2013

30th September 2013 at 12:17 pm

Cult Of Luna

Since their inception, Cult Of Luna have steadily released an album or EP every couple of years; culminating in this year’s heavy weight concept album ‘Vertikal‘. Built around Fritz Lang’s sic-fi classic ‘Metropolis’, their return from a five year absence was a towering colossus…

KLLU ‘UpsideDownCrossRoads’ DD 2012

19th June 2013 at 8:49 am

KLLU

Comprising one half of those terrible, awful, Drug Honkey bastards, KLLU have come to utterly harsh your mellow, piss on your parade and generally convince you that the inside of your head is haunted by means of judiciously applied bowel-shuddering bass, bone-crunching slow-mo beats,…

Author & Punisher ‘Women & Children’ CD/DD 2013

8th May 2013 at 12:05 pm

Author & Punisher

Any release from Tristan Shone’s long running Author & Punisher project is an event in my house. Ever since I heard the mechanised crash of The Drone Machines in 2010 I was hooked with this hybrid of man and machine combining to make some…

JK Flesh / Prurient ‘Worship Is The Cleansing Of The Imagination’ Split LP 2012

14th December 2012 at 9:17 am

JK Flesh / Prurient ‘Worship Is The Cleansing Of The Imagination’ Split LP 2012

‘Worship Is The Cleansing Of The Imagination’ is a collaborative release (and more than likely Hydra Head’s last ever it seems) between two solo artists: the legendary Justin Broadrick, here performing under the latest moniker for his solo ouput JK Flesh; and Prurient –…

JK Flesh ‘Posthuman’ CD/DD 2012

23rd April 2012 at 8:08 am

JK Flesh

Honestly Justin Broadrick must not be able to sleep. Not only famed for being one half of the monstrous and legendary Godflesh, but contributing to the first incarnation of Napalm Death, the brains behind Jesu, part of Techno Animal, Pale Sketcher (along side Kevin…
