Necro Deathmort ‘The Capsule’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:46 pm

Necro Deathmort

Necro Deathmort said it themselves; they don’t give a single fuck. “We’ve stopped caring that each new release might alienate fans of a previous record” is what Matthew Rozeik says on their bandcamp page. That is undoubtedly a big part of what has allowed…

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…

Voyag3r ‘Victory In The Battle Chamber’ 7″/DD 2013

23rd July 2013 at 9:13 am

Voyag3r

Michigan-based trio Voyag3r – prononced ‘Voyager 3’ I’m told – wear their collective heart on their sleeve. One glance at the front cover of this, their debut recording, should give you a pretty good idea of what lurks within, looking, as it does, almost…

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,…

The Eye Of Time – S/T – CD/LP/Digital 2012

4th July 2012 at 8:33 am

The Eye Of Time - S/T - CD/LP/Digital 2012

Time is an ocean in which we swim. We may think of it as a river that flows in one direction but allows us to look back at where we have been, but this is merely the way in which we perceive and experience…

Paul Catten ‘Themes And Variations For Strings And Electronics’ CD 2011

16th November 2011 at 9:00 am

Paul Catten

In another life, Paul Catten would perhaps have been horribly disfgured during the explosion of a machine to communicate with the dead, brought about by his own flawed calculations, rescued by mysterious Tibetan monks and perpetually encased within a suit of armour in order…

Aun ‘Phantom Ghost’ CD/LP/DD 2011

2nd November 2011 at 9:14 am

Aun

Taking Aun’s Phantom Ghost at face value you could probably do a fair job of predicting the sounds within. The cover image is an out-of-focus picture of two young girls in white gowns; one sits looking at something out of sight while the other…

Tom Hall ‘Muted Angels’ Cassette/DL 2011

7th October 2011 at 11:11 am

Tom Hall

A bit off the beaten track for The Sleeping Shaman, this one, due to its lack of guitars, hair, fuzzboxes and flared trousers, but never let it be said that we don’t attempt to edjumacate youse heathen scum by exposing you to sounds that…

Hey Colossus ‘RRR’ CD/LP 2011

25th June 2011 at 8:48 am

Hey Colossus

Purely by taking the time to even stumble across this webpage, you will most probably be aware that “heavy” can take on all kinds of forms when it comes to music. What South London-lurking noise-urchins Hey Colossus define as their take on this art…
