Gnaw Their Tongues ‘Abyss Of Longing Throats’ CD/DD 2015

5th January 2016 at 6:54 pm

Gnaw Their Tongues

Having seen Gnaw Their Tongues live this past October, I can honestly say that we’re talking about one of the most intense acts in heavy music today. It’s not just noisy, it is harrowing and disturbing, almost like the soundtrack to the darkest nightmares…

Chron Goblin ‘Backwater’ CD/LP/DD 2015

Witchrider

Formed in 2012 and hailing from Austria, Witchrider clearly love bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, Soundgarden, Kyuss, and Black Sabbath, and what they offer us is that fuzzy, heavy rock that makes you want to bang your head like there’s no…
