Cathedral ‘In Memoriam’ CD/DVD/LP Reissue 2015

14th September 2015 at 6:35 pm

Cathedral

To properly appreciate this reissue of doom legends Cathedral’s In Memoriam demo, it’s important to put this release into some sort of context first. In 1990, when this collection of songs was first recorded, doom metal was about as underground as it got. It…

Skepticism ‘Ordeal’ CD/LP/DVD 2015

14th August 2015 at 7:02 pm

Skepticism

Regarded as one of the pioneers of the infamous funeral doom genre, Skepticism has a long history of making heavy as fuck music at the slowest possible pace. The band has been around for almost 25 years and strikes a chord again with new…

Ape Machine ‘Live At Freak Valley’ LP/DVD/DD 2015

15th June 2015 at 6:48 pm

Ape Machine

I’m a big fan of the Ripple Music family. They have been quietly (or loudly depending on your take on it) assembling a catalogue of artists who all share a love of retro sounding, ass kicking, bootie shaking rock and roll. Of course there…

Enos ‘Live At The East Slope’ DVD 2014

29th July 2014 at 8:56 am

Enos

It’s a brave move for a band to be releasing a live DVD when on a budget. Fortunately Enos are a brave band. Often thrown in with the melee of stoner rock bands Enos seem to come from an altogether different mindset as they…

Nightsatan ‘Nightsatan And The Loops Of Doom’ CD/DVD 2014

16th April 2014 at 9:41 am

Nightsatan

We live in an age where a hell of a lot of people (myself included) seem to love soundtrack albums, especially those of 70s/80s horror and sci-fi films. The ‘Nightsatan And The Loops of Doom’ soundtrack has all the squakky synths, big reverb toms,…

Leaf Hound ‘Live In Japan’ CD/LP/DVD/DD 2014

12th February 2014 at 10:57 am

Leaf Hound

If we had to describe Leaf Hound, we could say they are one of those bands who end up becoming legendary without making it big. Their roots go back to 1969 with Black Cat Bones, a band that featured, in its early incarnations, guitarist…

Daniel Menche ‘Vilke’ LP/CS + DVD 2013

30th June 2013 at 12:29 pm

Daniel Menche

It’s as exhausting sometimes to listen to the work of Daniel Mench as it is to keep up with his sizeable discography. The rewards for achieving either are plentiful however. I’m hard pushed to think of another artist currently working in the general area…

Truckfighters ‘Fuzzomentary’ DVD 2011

16th May 2013 at 11:09 am

Truckfighters

The rock documentary is a much abused format that can vary in presentation from live concert recordings that follow tours and show bands living the high life, playing packed out arenas and indulging in all manner of debauchery, grimy hard hitting ‘facts’ that can…

Black Mass Rising – DVD 2011

26th November 2012 at 10:17 am

Black Mass Rising - DVD 2011

Veering from lysergic, sun-bleached kaleidoscopic visions and pulsing, trance-state musical emanations down into monochromatic, stark chiaroscuro graveyard imagery and harsh, claustrophobic outbursts of noise, Black Mass Rising, the debut film from the pseudonymous Shazzula Nebula, is quite the hypnagogic sensory overload. Filmed entirely on…

Isis ‘Temporal’ CD/DVD 2012

15th November 2012 at 8:23 am

Isis

Ah Isis, suddenly you look up and they have seemingly been around for ever, for me ever since a Rock Sound CD (which also featured brilliant Botch and Converge tracks I seem to recall), opened my eyes to this elegant, but frequently brutal entity….
