Ggu:ll ‘Dwaling’ CD/LP/DD 2016

24th May 2016 at 6:34 pm

Ggu:ll

Ggu:ll have finally released that long awaited full length, titled Dwaling. Its title would translate as ‘error’, but it feels slightly more like being lost in the dark. In the darkness of Ggu:ll there might actually dwell monsters. That’s what their album, presented during…

23rd May 2016 at 6:53 pm

Earthless / Harsh Toke - Split

I’ll admit it: I’m an addict. It’s got to the point now with new Earthless releases that I literally get giddy like a toddler in a sandpit every time a new one sails by atop of my newsfeed. New splits, new albums, new live…

Se Delan ‘Drifter’ CD/LP/DD 2016

19th May 2016 at 7:03 pm

Se Delan

So, you’ve laid waste to countless ears with Iron Monkey, had an in-one-door-out-the-next tenure in Electric Wizard and then basically learned all the instruments to become the seed-capital of Cripple Black Phoenix…where next? Well, if you’re Justin Greaves then you invoke the subtle ghosts…

Dälek

Congratulations, you might be reading the very first review of a hip-hop album on The Sleeping Shaman. We can’t help it, we dig the sound of Dälek, because it rocks harder than many bands with guitars. Let’s check out their latest effort titled Asphalt…

17th May 2016 at 7:19 pm

Alaric

Alaric is probably most known for the sacking of Rome in the fifth century. Those were dark times. The namesake of the Visigoth king is a dark punk band from Oakland, who’ve just released an album that I for one can’t stop listening to….

Ghold ‘PYR’ CD/LP/DD 2016

9th May 2016 at 6:40 pm

Ghold

A progressive noise trio from London they call themselves and they make music that definitely fits the description. Either that or Ghold have been recording the world falling apart around you in some way. Their new album PYR is out. It’s pretty hectic. Ghold…

Amenra

A spiritual successor to their 2009 Afterlife EP, Alive sees Belgium’s mysterious purveyors of post-doom/sludge Amenra once more bare their collective soul by paring things back to the bare bones. Comprising ten acoustic tracks, some reimagining their own material, some approaching that of others,…

The Heads ‘Burning Up With… Live At Roadburn 2015’ LP/DD 2016

4th May 2016 at 5:54 pm

The Heads

In some ways it’s pretty weird to be holding the vinyl of a live show you actually attended. I mean, sure, it’s a good kinda weird but I don’t know, you remember things differently than they felt in that warm, dark, beer-n-smoke-in-hand moment than…

Wolvserpent ‘Aporia:Kāla:Ananta’ CD/LP/DD 2016

3rd May 2016 at 6:04 pm

Wolvserpent

Idaho duo Wolvserpent have been slowly developing their brand of tar-black doom over a number of years, always standing out from the crowd of riff-wranglers through their haunting use of Brittany McConnell’s violin and, well, by being a duo! I’m happy to admit that…
