Emptiness ‘Not For Music’ 2017

13th June 2017 at 7:12 pm

Emptiness

For some strange reason, everyone keeps calling Emptiness a black/death metal band. I might be quite late to the party (Not For Music is the band’s fifth full-length, not including three demos), but I don’t get the use of the label. Although it is…

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…

The Body ‘No One Deserves Happiness’ CD/LP/DD 2016

23rd February 2016 at 7:38 pm

The Body

With an ever growing list of side projects and collaborations, it was beginning to look like The Body were never going to get back on track towards their own albums. However, two years after the release of I Shall Die Here, their fifth full…

Owl ‘Aeon Cult’ DD 2015

20th December 2015 at 1:59 pm

Owl

Aeon Cult is shorter than some of Owl’s previous songs, let alone releases! This EP is the third release in a year from Owl, following on from Into the Absolute and The Last Walk in 2014. It continues their progression through the weirder fringes…

The Body & Krieg – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2015

16th November 2015 at 7:43 pm

The Body & Krieg – S/T

Noise-doom aficionados, The Body, are well renowned for their creative collaborations with some of metal’s finest, producing some absolutely terrifying results. Set to trump all of their previous efforts is their work alongside Krieg’s Neill Jameson. This album was produced two years ago but…

Corrections House ‘Know How To Carry A Whip’ CD/LP/DD 2015

11th October 2015 at 3:35 pm

Corrections House

In 2013 my favourite record was the Corrections House debut, a garbled ‘news from the front’ type collision of the organic despair of modern era Neurosis folk, the cold digital loops and beats of Sanford Parker (Minsk), a mechanised clash that would do prime…

Locrian ‘Infinite Dissolution’ CD/LP/DD 2015

23rd September 2015 at 7:04 pm

Locrian

I have made no bones over the years about the fact that I adore Locrian, from their earlier noise infused works to their more progressive later releases, they always seem to be able to summon forth a cacophony of pleasing delights. Now they have…

Author & Punisher ‘Melk En Honing’ CD/LP/DD 2015

19th June 2015 at 6:32 pm

Author & Punisher

With 2010’s Drone Machines album, San Diego’s Author & Punisher, aka Tristan Shone, challenged the landscape of Industrial, Doom and Drone music. Part performance art, part revolutionary approach to making music, the concept of this nightmarish cyborg one man band played out in alien…

Legion Of Andromeda ‘Iron Scorn’ LP/DD 2015

13th May 2015 at 7:04 pm

Legion Of Andromeda

So I got into this Japanese band called Legion Of Andromeda. That’s not a seventies space opera name. They really mean it: it’s about the entire constellation, heading towards us to devour us like the maggots we are, and they just so happen to…

Odota ‘Fever Marshall’ DD 2014

22nd February 2015 at 1:31 pm

Odota

Jarmo Nuutre is a peculiar figure. A graphic designer, car fanatic, tattoo artist and a lover of all things sludge and heavy it seems. Under the name Odota he has created a peculiar sounding, sludge infused black metal record with the title Fever Marshall,…
