Lycus ‘Chasms’ CD/LP/DD 2016

4th February 2016 at 7:04 pm

Lycus

Chasms is the new album from Lycus and it is as deep and as dark as it sounds! This beautifully depressing piece of art was created by a four piece doom collective from Oakland, California. Clocking in at around forty-five minutes, Chasms certainly holds…

AHAB ‘The Boats Of The Glen Carrig’ CD/LP/DD 2015

6th September 2015 at 12:14 pm

AHAB

The nautical lords of doom have returned with another aquatic album filled with masterful music. Taking the time to let songs find their own stream is a specialty of these Germans, which could be heard on their 2012 epos The Giant. Three years later…

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…

Dysphorian Breed ‘The Longing For The Tides Of Metamorphosis’ DD 2014

12th September 2014 at 9:50 am

Dyphorian Breed

Has someone sinned? Is there a judgment from on high coming down? The sounds of choruses and orchestral bells seem to denote so. I’ve heard these “noises” before and they always bring me back to that place when I hear them again: The Omen….

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…

Ea ‘A Etilla’ CD/DD 2014

26th January 2014 at 10:44 am

Ea

Funeral doom is a very small subgenre when it comes to metal and not many good and dedicated bands last. This subgenre was in fact the one that drove me to the slow and heavy kind of music more than fast and brutal as…

Eibon ‘II’ CD/LP/DD 2013

5th September 2013 at 8:48 am

Eibon

There are two things that could have pulled intrigued listeners in to Eibon’s second full-length. The first is the band themselves – featuring members of Decline of the I, Glorior Belli and Drowning, they’re as fine a representation of the French underground as anyone…

Ephemeros ‘All Hail Corrosion’ CD/LP 2013

2nd August 2013 at 8:22 am

Ephemeros

I’m a sucker for West Coast miserablists like Asunder, Aldebaran, Laudanum, Samothrace, and Anhedonist, so I was excited to hear of a relatively recent addition to this band of happy campers, Portland’s Ephemeros. Comprised of various gloomy luminaries from bands such as Nux Vomica,…

Kongh ‘Sole Creation’ CD/LP/DD 2013

1st February 2013 at 11:41 am

Kongh

Clearly growing in confidence having produced two excellent albums with 2007’s ‘Counting Heartbeats’ and 2009’s ‘Shadows of the Shapeless’ the three headed primate that is Swedish Doom pedlars Kongh have squirrelled themselves away in the studio in order to refine everything they have learnt…

Inverloch ‘Dusk…Subside’ CD/LP/Digital 2012

17th June 2012 at 9:35 am

Inverloch ‘Dusk...Subside’ CD/LP/Digital 2012

Proto-Funeral Doom/Drone grinders diSEMBOWELMENT were, in many ways, the definition of ‘kvlt’, having played zero live shows, recorded one EP, Dusk, and one seminal – now regarded as ‘classic’ – LP, Transcendence Into The Peripheral, in the early nineties before disappearing off the face…
