Aluna ‘Fall To Earth’ CDEP 2008

15th August 2008 at 8:53 am

Aluna

If the only musical legacy the West Midlands ever left us was Black Sabbath they’d be doing pretty well in my book. The fact that they’ve also given us Judas Priest and half of Led Zeppelin means that their hard rocking credentials are firmly…

Gentlemans Pistols - S/T - CD/LP 2007

Whoa there, hold the phone have I missed something??? I seem to have fallen asleep and woken up in 1973 as that’s the year these guys are living their entire existence. What a luxury that must be for them, they haven’t had to endure…

Grifter ‘The High Unholy Mighty Rollin’ CDEP 2008

29th July 2008 at 8:49 am

Grifter

Like that day old taste of sour mash, that tinnitus from blasting AC/DC and Clutch out of your car stereo or the hot humid Southern air that seems to increase Earth’s gravitational pull. This band couldn’t be more blue collar, Southern state rock n…

Fatty Chan ‘Tunguska’ CDEP 2008

15th March 2008 at 9:32 am

Fatty Chan

I’m guessing the name Fatty Chan won’t mean too much to anyone at the moment as, although the band have been in existence for the last couple of years on the Exeter metal scene they have maintained a fairly low profile to hone their…

Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children Of The Knight ‘Imaginarianism’ CDEP 2008

15th March 2008 at 8:53 am

Trippy Wicked And The Cosmic Children Of The Knight

Where do I start? Trippy Wicked, or to give them their full name Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight are a bit of a conundrum. This two piece from St Albans class themselves as “a mix of rock n roll, stoner,…

Corrosion Of Conformity ‘In The Arms Of God’ CD 2005

21st April 2005 at 8:58 am

Corrosion Of Conformity

Its almost scary to think that it’s been over ten years since Deliverance blew my stereo speakers, and keeping with the tradition that has now become accustomed to COC they’ve returned with a furious album that breathes new life into their extensive history. What…

El-Thule ‘No Guts, No Glory’ CD 2004

2nd March 2005 at 1:19 pm

El-Thule

They say looks can be deceiving and that’s certainly the case for El-Thule’s ‘No Guts, No Glory’ opus. When this little beauty dropped through my letterbox, the moment I laid eyes on the inlay, it had me convinced it was an all out, groove…
