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….

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare - S/T

Scott Kelly (he of Neurosis fame) and Sandford Parker (Buried At Sea) have clearly enjoyed working together on the Corrections House albums and found themselves with an over abundance of creativity from these sessions that has left a further itch to scratch. As a…

The Body & Full Of Hell ‘One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache’ CD/DD 2016

26th March 2016 at 4:36 pm

The Body & Full of Hell

Traditionally, The Body’s collaborations (to date they’ve paired up with The Haxan Cloak, Krieg, Thou and Vampilla) have allowed them to branch out, experiment and build upon their pre-existing sound. However, their long awaited release with Full Of Hell sounds more like a full-length…

Corrections House ‘Know How To Carry A Whip’ CD/LP/DD 2015

11th October 2015 at 3:35 pm

Corrections House

In 2013 my favourite record was the Corrections House debut, a garbled ‘news from the front’ type collision of the organic despair of modern era Neurosis folk, the cold digital loops and beats of Sanford Parker (Minsk), a mechanised clash that would do prime…

30th September 2015 at 6:57 pm

Kowloon Walled City

Chicago’s Kowloon Walled City have been plying their sludge tinged, post metal trade since 2007, but three albums and a string of demos, splits and EP’s have seen them  maintain an unshakable sense of self, a core sound that persists throughout each release, tying…

20th September 2015 at 4:03 pm

Dark Buddha Rising

Despite housing members from the likes of Hexvessel, Atomikylä, Darkempire and Mother Susurrus and having an output of six albums spanning a career of eight years, Finland’s Dark Buddha Rising only gained any kind of credible recognition in 2013 following the release of Dakhmandal….

Ufomammut ‘Ecate’ CD/LP/DD 2015

30th July 2015 at 6:58 pm

Ufomammut

As the sun returned to our isles and I sat in my back garden, with blue skies overhead, the sun’s warmth on my face and the sounds of nature all around me, I should have been perfectly primed to soak in Italian doom trio…

Steve Von Till ‘A Life Unto Itself’ CD/LP/DD 2015

17th June 2015 at 6:55 pm

Steve Von Till

Neurosis lynchpin Steve Von Till’s name always becomes scrambled in my brain with that of gritty gunslinger Lee Van Cleef. Lazy silly brain. I just had to tell you that before we start. The opening track, In Your Wings, sets the sad tone for…
