Farflung ‘5’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:35 pm

Farflung

I don’t think NASA realizes we’ve been manning missions to Mars since the early nineties – at least where Farflung’s concerned, we’ve had an anthropological (if they even are human) boot firmly trenched in that part of the galaxy only fit for highbrow, esoteric…

Sourvein ‘Aquatic Occult’ CD/LP/DD 2016

23rd May 2016 at 7:03 pm

Sourvein

Cape Fear River, NC natives Sourvein shouldn’t need an introduction, having pioneered an American southern doom scene with enough history to demand its own collegiate textbook; if there’s one face to pair with the name, it’s vocalist/guitarist and creative helmsman Troy “T-Roy” Medlin –…

Graves At Sea ‘The Curse That Is’ CD/LP/DD 2016

27th April 2016 at 6:04 pm

Graves At Sea

With its eclectic, eco-friendly vibe, Portland, OR’s earth-centered urbania meets hipster-hippie chic has made it ripe for satirical comedo-drama (check Portlandia), but its cooler, more sinister underbelly hides some of the best and most vicious secrets. Note the front of any vintage Sunn amplifier…

Beastmaker ‘Lusus Naturae’ CD/LP/DD 2016

26th April 2016 at 6:05 pm

Beastmaker

The Sabbath tree of life extends its familiar branches yet again, and somehow our undying love for the arguable originators of doom allows our ears to perk at the slight chance that a new band might just crack the code without cloning the blueprint…

Seven Sisters Of Sleep ‘Ezekial’s Hags’ CD/LP/DD 2016

30th March 2016 at 6:38 pm

Seven Sisters Of Sleep

Get ready for an old school schooling in how new school extreme metal should be done the old school way. While you’re pondering that one, let’s also ponder why early 90s death metal (even doom metal a la Confessor) was so goddamn fantastic –…

Mugstar ‘Magnetic Seasons’ CD/LP/DD 2016

20th March 2016 at 11:01 am

Mugstar

Instrumental rock is a dangerous territory in a digital era of increasingly short attention spans unwilling to give an album more than one or two spins before ejecting it to the recycle bin – Krautrock jams (think 120 Days, Neu!, or Amon Düül) have…

Mars Red Sky

French trio Mars Red Sky (Julian Pras-vocals/guitar, Jimmy Kinast-bass/vocals, Matieu Gazeau-drums) has emerged as one of the more unique heavy rock acts of the past decade, their 2014 opus Stranded In Arcadia massaging a Hendrixian neo psych fuzz popularized by bands like Sleepy Sun…

Elevators To The Grateful Sky ‘Cape Yawn’ LP/DD 2016

21st February 2016 at 1:55 pm

Elevators To The Grateful Sky

Sometimes you have to recalibrate your listening curve and abandon all expectations when a record like Elevators To The Grateful Sky’s (ETTGS) Cape Yawn comes around – the Palermo, Sicily quartet (Sandro-vox, Giorgio-guitars/bass, Peppe-guitars, and Giulio-drums/percussion) have prided themselves on the fusion of diverse…

7th February 2016 at 1:46 pm

HAG

UK punk sludgers HAG – Ian Baigent (vox/guitars), Robin Freeman (bass), and Tamas Kiss (drums) – emerged with 2016’s awesome Fear Of Man after nearly six years of radio silence. The doom battlefield may be a bit different these days, but this trio’s cut…

HAG ‘Fear Of Man’ DD 2016

23rd January 2016 at 5:27 pm

HAG

As far as any of us can remember, there’s been a two-tier hierarchy in progressive sludge metal: Tier 1 – High On Fire, Tier 2 – everyone else. Underrated heroes Teeth Of The Hydra tried to scale that never-ending beanstalk to Tier 1 heaven…
