The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic – S/T – CD/DD 2013

28th September 2013 at 9:23 am

The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic - S/T

You can’t get a much more hyperbolic name for a band than The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic however; I wouldn’t expect any lesser name from the brainchild of Ed Mundell (Monster Magnet, The Atomic Bitchwax), Collyn McCoy (Trash Titans, Otep) and Rick Ferrante (Sasquatch)….

Bridesmaid ‘Breakfast At Riffany’s’ LP/DD 2013

12th September 2013 at 11:02 am

Bridesmaid

As if three dusty-kilted dwarves were time transported to the present, Bridesmaid comes thundering out of the speakers with the power of Thor’s very own hammer. The trio gallantly ride that god’s lightning, bumping and crashing heavily against the grain with a punktastic flair….

6th June 2013 at 8:47 am

Space Witch

You’ve got to have a good sense of humour with a name like Space Witch, haven’t you? With the market on prime ‘Bong’, ‘Witch’ and ‘Goat’ aided doom band names growing ever smaller, a band utilising these kinds of suffixes needs to really stand…

Karma To Burn ‘Live At Club Sidro’ CD/LP 2013

21st March 2013 at 9:25 am

Karma To Burn

You have to admire the sheer belligerence of Karma To Burn, having jettisoned the singer they effectively had thrust on them in order to secure a record deal for their Roadrunner debut album way back in 1997, they have battled on as the instrumental…

Barn Owl ‘V’ CD/LP 2013

4th March 2013 at 9:41 am

Barn Owl

Barn Owl, have, over the process of a few albums, mutated from an organically spiritual drone machine, beloved of more contemplative weedians, into something which could be called ‘dark ambient’ although that label might be fraught with associations of formless, pointless background music. For…

4th February 2013 at 9:55 am

Bongripper

Screaming and running through the dark and drizzled night, from the Het Patronaat venue they came. “Behold!” many cried, “We hath seen thee Bongripper and they have caused much devastation to our minds!” The furore quickly spread; “They will play again tomorrow as the…

27th December 2012 at 11:58 am

SardoniS/Eternal Elysium

The Japanese get all the coolest things in life first: sushi, bullet trains, ninjas, walkmans, ‘Made in Japan’, and now a largely instrumental split disc between country natives Eternal Elysium and Belgian swamp-dredgers SardoniS. Celebrating the six-date tour of Japan in mid-October that the…

The Devil – S/T – CD 2012

14th November 2012 at 8:57 am

The Devil - S/T - CD 2012

Well, this is something a little bit different, isn’t it? The Devil is a classical, symphony-centred heavy metal project and has created its debut album with the intention of shopping it around for use as a film or live play score. Enshrouded in secrecy…
