Moss ‘Carmilla (Marcilla) / Spectral Visions’ 10″/DD 2014

7th November 2014 at 12:26 pm

Moss

Me and Moss, we go back a long way. Once, I played in Bunkur and we shared the stage with Moss a couple of times. They were slow and extreme, we were slower and more extreme, but a mutual respect was there. We even…

Nauseahtake

I saw Nauseahtake tear up the stage once, but back then they had yet to record. Now, here is an album and I can’t wait to hear what they made of it. The first of three long tracks, The Crust, starts with a didgeridoo…

The House Of Capricorn ‘Morning Star Rise’ CD/LP/DD 2014

11th October 2014 at 10:27 am

The House Of Capricorn

Even though this is the third album by these New Zealand devil worshippers, I had not yet had the pleasures of hearing their black tinged rock and roll. They are a hard band to label, so I will just say that to me they…

Swallowed ‘Lunarterial’ CD/LP/DD 2014

17th September 2014 at 11:00 am

Swallowed

A while ago I heard the EP of Finnish Swallowed and they immediately drew me into their web of slow and ominous death metal. Needless to say I jumped at the chance to review their full length album. The mad piping of ancient cults,…

Sunken is a two piece band, consisting of just bass and drums. I found this to be an interesting way of working and was curious to hear what these two guys had to offer. Quite the sonic journey lay ahead of me. The album…

Collapsian ‘At The Left Hand Of The Sun’ CD/DD 2014

8th August 2014 at 9:54 am

Collapsian

Collapsian hail from Phoenix Arizona and play a mean mixture of doom, sludge, black metal, psychedelic and progressive rock according to their bio. Honestly, I don’t hear much black metal or psychedelic/progressive rock in their music after listening to the opener Cold Hands. I…

Dwell hail from Oakland, California and have forged a sound that is influenced by doom acts such as Pallbearer, Mar Des Grises and Tombs and by post core gods such as Neurosis, Isis and Cult Of Luna. Add to that a smudge of blackened…

15th June 2014 at 1:41 pm

Skinwalker

Skinwalker are a drone/ doom band from the US. They make occult music, inspired by all things paranormal and that was something that I find very compelling. I have taken my time digesting this album and I’ll take you along on my findings. The…

Serpent Venom ‘Of Things Seen & Unseen’ CD 2014

13th June 2014 at 9:49 am

Serpent Venom

When I saw Serpent Venom had a second album out I jumped at the chance to review it. Being fortunate enough to see them live on their only gig in The Netherlands, I was immediately sold on their heavy Vitus meets Bedemon styled doom. The…

Neige Morte is a particularly dark entity from France. On their second album they delve further into the filth and darkness they are known for. The album opens with ‘500 Jours De Haine’, a track that, after the strange intro has ended, starts of…
