Merlin ‘Christ Killer’ CD/DD 2014

25th August 2014 at 10:38 am

Merlin

I would like to begin this review with a warning. It might be hard to understand what I’m getting at but it just came out that way and when I read it back, I felt I didn’t want to change it as I tried…

Offerstigen ‘Solens Inälvor’ Digital EP 2014

6th July 2014 at 9:23 am

Offerstigen

So this band is obscure beyond obscurity. The only facts I can figure out about them is that they’re Swedish, they’re called Offerstigen (means something like “path of sacrifice / offering” in English) but the band name also seems to be the actual physical…

Anti Ritual - S/T

From Copenhagen, Denmark a brutal force beyond description is being projected onto the world and Anti Ritual are to blame for it. With their mix of… Well just about everything heavy, aggressive, energetic and mind crushing you can think of. From hardcore through to…

A Tree Of Signs ‘Saturn’ Digital EP 2013

8th June 2014 at 10:55 am

A Tree Of Signs

A Tree Of Signs were on the brink of extinction when vocalist and keyboardist V-Kaos decided to leave the project to pursue other interests, but after some searching they found a replacement in Diana Silveira and what a replacement. Her voice brings the listener…

Dirge ‘Hyperion’ CD/LP/DD 2014

5th March 2014 at 9:42 am

Dirge

First of all I would like to say that this particular sort of music is a pretty new genre in itself and I myself am a new fan of mixing hardcore, post-hardcore, post-core etc with heavier influences such as sludge, stoner or just heavy…

71TONMAN – S/T – DD 2013

9th February 2014 at 11:36 am

71TONMAN - S/T

So I’m glad to see, and most of all hear, that Poland is producing some really good and heavy doom for us listeners that I can never get enough of. It’s not like Poland already didn’t have some really good acts, but it’s nice…

Buis – S/T – Digital EP 2014

3rd February 2014 at 10:20 am

Buis - S/T

Hailing from The Netherlands, this 4-piece plays stoner doom, or if you want to be a bit psychedelic and spiritual about it “an omnipresent, all-permeating resonance of the transdimensional tunnel“. The Self-Titled EP and its four tracks is not only stoner doom to my…

Ea ‘A Etilla’ CD/DD 2014

26th January 2014 at 10:44 am

Ea

Major Kong ‘Doom Machine’ DD 2014

12th January 2014 at 10:50 am

Major Kong

I was very happy to find out that these Poles are still at it delivering dirty and raw sounding stoner. This is a DIY band in a nutshell and they keep composing, recording and playing live without a record company backing them up. Strongly…

Celeste ‘Animale(s)’ CD/LP/DD 2013

22nd December 2013 at 10:23 am

Celeste

To play black metal in today’s environment with so many subgenres, not even the dark one himself can keep up with them all and still stand out and have an original sounding idea while at the same time, making a name for themselves is…
