Jochem Reminisces About Horror Doomers Ramesses And Their Imminent Resurrection

14th February 2016 at 2:07 pm

Ramesses

After Ramesses’ recent announcement of a gig at the upcoming Temples Festival, I felt I had to finally write the article I’ve been wanting to write for a while. Big boss Lee could use some substance in between all the empty promises I made…

Pyramidal / Domo ‘Jams From The Sun’ LP/DD 2015

23rd December 2015 at 7:08 pm

Pyramidal / Domo

How many lush records do you own? Do you need another Air? Another Zero7, fit for sparking romantic interests and long summer nights? Maybe you need something to replace your dusty and scratched copy of Welcome To Sky Valley, its fifth track Space Cadet…

Funerary / Ooze – Split LP/DD 2015

18th November 2015 at 7:47 pm

Funerary / Ooze - Split

FUNERARY OOZE! A fine name for a band, but there’s two going on here. It’s called a split, and it was released a while ago on DIY label Midnite Collective in order to let us all know about two up-and-coming sludge and doom bands…

Bong ‘We Are, We Were And We Will Have Been’ CD/LP/DD 2015

14th July 2015 at 6:45 pm

Bong

Because I’m lazy and I live in Amsterdam, writing this review took a little longer than planned. That’s absolutely no worry though, as I can now read all the other reviews and see what ‘they’ are saying. This gives me the distinct advantage of…

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…

11Paranoias ‘Stealing Fire From Heaven’ CD/DD 2014

15th December 2014 at 12:09 pm

11Paranoias

Me and my colleagues soar in the development department, but not so much in research. We’re great at making up associative, adjective-laden descriptions of music and then suddenly saying ‘this is a good record’, because, well, those associations came up and the record was…

Today Is The Day ‘Animal Mother’ CD/LP/DD 2014

20th November 2014 at 10:14 am

Today Is The Day

I’ve been up for a few days. An Italian lady had to do with the second night; molecules with the third. The first and the last, I won’t mention. This review should have been written a week ago, as it was by then a…

Blown Out ‘Drifting Way Out Between Suns’ CD/LP/DD 2014

16th November 2014 at 10:52 am

Blown Out

Ah… Mike Vest. How many bands can an axe slinger take on in any given amount of time? How many ‘waster lead, face slashing, freaked out, black-hole-psychedelic-deathtoll-car-crash-blues-jams’ can a man stand? Quite a few, it seems. In Blown Out,  he’s joined by John-Michael Hedley…

Snailking ‘Storm’ CD/LP/DD 2014

22nd October 2014 at 9:45 am

Snailking

Am I allowed to review music? Let me rephrase that slightly differently. Am I, as reviewer, just a fan, or am I an outsider, with no idea why and how assembled sounds are created? Nay, I perform music myself, I love smashing cymbals and…

Electric Wizard ‘Time To Die’ CD/LP/DD 2014

2nd October 2014 at 10:59 am

Electric Wizard

I don’t give a shit if every single reviewer talks you to the mouth, press agent. They are all retyping your synesthetic descriptions of hammer horror. Adjective-laden pieces of poor taste, written by yes men, hyping your shit up, playing your fucking cheerleaders. But…
