Ancient Of Days ‘Wretched Ones’ EP CD/DD 2016

24th May 2016 at 6:43 pm

Ancient Of Days

Does anyone remember when bands at least seemed like they were seriously fucking dangerous? Remember that unnerving feeling of being frozen to the spot near the front of the stage at a random, badly attended all-dayer in some dingy, godforsaken venue in some shitty,…

The Skull – S/T – EP CD 2016

18th February 2016 at 6:59 pm

The Skull - S/T - EP

Bands that split themselves into two factions can either be a blessing or a curse. Several different examples of this exist and American Doom legends Trouble are, for better or worse, one of them. Whilst one half of the band have kept their infamous…

Bitchcraft – S/T – Digital EP 2013

9th March 2014 at 10:58 am

Bitchcraft - S/T

Ah… a press release talking about 70’s horror, weed, the occult, beards, and freaks that put music to these themes. An absolutely great, although corny, band name we could easily add to a growing list of “shirts you’ll never wear”, still ranking miles above…

Million Dollar Fix ‘Psychedelephant’ Digital EP 2014

8th March 2014 at 10:23 am

Million Dollar Fix

Grab your friends, grab some beers, and put away the fine china. Million Dollar Fix are here, and they are on a stomping, pounding, partying rampage. This Canadian four-piece is a rock’n’roll force of nature, whose winds will surely be blowing back hair and…

No Gods No Masters – S/T EP – CD/DD 2013

15th February 2014 at 10:32 am

No Gods No Masters - S/T

Having been described as a NOLA infused sludge/doom outfit, my immediate excitement to hear No Gods No Masters‘ 4 song EP was tempered with a bit of skepticism. When one draws comparisons (as in the bio) to such high caliber acts as The Cro-Mags…

Boneworm – ST – Digital EP 2012

8th June 2013 at 10:31 am

Boneworm – ST

Urgh. This is a frustrating one. Boneworm are a great example of a band who have all the right parts to make up something great, but just somehow fall short of doing as much. Three excellent players combine here to produce a three song…

Bright Curse – S/T – Digital EP 2012

26th May 2013 at 12:45 pm

Bright Curse - ST

London based Bright Curse came as a result of singer Row (ex-Soul Manifest) relocating from the North of France to the capital and hooking up with bassist Sammy – their common goal was to make great heavy music. Following the usual lineup changes, the…

Mansion ‘We Shall Live’ EP 2013

15th May 2013 at 9:21 am

Mansion

Mystery is a rare thing in music, given that we live in an age of ultra-exposure and social networking. No sooner has a demo been released, than we are regaled with tales of what the band had for breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with…

King Goat ‘Atom’ Digital EP 2013

26th April 2013 at 11:13 am

King Goat

The first lyrics that seep out of new Brighton doom merchants’ King Goat’s debut EP are ‘A lumbering machine…’ and that’s a very fitting description of their sound, as the track ‘Machine God’ rumbles its way clumsily forward, like a rusty Iron Man, pulling…

Amulet ‘Cut The Crap’ Cassette EP 2012

24th January 2012 at 9:28 am

Amulet

“Amulet”, noun, from the Latin amuletum; meaning “an object that protects a person from trouble”. Grainy tape cassette recordings and old school heavy metal authenticity: holding hands like brothers in medieval battle since 1964. It’s really only recordings like this that actually sound like…
