Bright Curse ‘Before The Shore’ 2016

8th May 2017 at 6:52 pm

Bright Curse

Talent comes in a great many forms, musical talent at least. Quite often, it bubbles and brews over time; a band kicks a few amps into shape in someone’s garage or spare room until a decent set of songs is in place, gigs a…

Raging T ‘Radical Reaper’ EP 2016

17th April 2017 at 1:24 pm

Raging T

More T vicar?! Well, it sure does appear that’s what’s in order right now for all those hard rock-loving reverends out there. In between creating yet more of their criminally un-talked-about chunky odes to The Obsessed and Internal Void, two-thirds of Wiltshire-based power doomsters…

Slomatics ‘Future Echo Returns’ 2016

17th April 2017 at 12:34 pm

Slomatics

Gone are the days when I ask “What is Heavy?” and you reply “Black Sabbath”. I mean sure, it’s not that the Brummingham Lords of Our World didn’t define all of the templates nor that they’ve lost much of their oomph even now as…

Ancient Of Days ‘Wretched Ones’ EP CD/DD 2016

24th May 2016 at 6:43 pm

Ancient Of Days

Does anyone remember when bands at least seemed like they were seriously fucking dangerous? Remember that unnerving feeling of being frozen to the spot near the front of the stage at a random, badly attended all-dayer in some dingy, godforsaken venue in some shitty,…

Earthless / Harsh Toke – Split – CD/LP/DD 2016

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…

Godflesh - Desertfest London 2016

Well, here we go. It’s time to dust off the cobwebs for the third and final time today for Sunday at Desertfest 2016. *Sniffles* Still, there’s only so many days a guy can live on beer, coffee and fried chicken alone and the wear…

Astral Kannibals: Desertfest 2016 Day 2 Review

16th May 2016 at 7:33 pm

Slomatics - Desertfest London 2016

“It’s a little bit fuzzy… this feeling in my headddddd…” It’s a good kind of fuzzy though and for sure, it’s only likely to get even fuzzier with a line-up looking like today’s does. After a leisurely coffee and a well overdue catch up…

Cleaning Our Wounds: DesertFest London 2016 Day 1 Review

13th May 2016 at 7:27 pm

Corrosion Of Conformity - Desertfest London 2016

Well that’s hangover number one successfully secured, thanks Slabdragger. But hey there’s nothing a couple of coffees, a cooked breakfast and getting back down to The Black Heart to get wristbanded up and relubricated in time for today’s proceedings can’t solve. With stoner legends…

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…
