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…

Spell ‘For None And All’ CD/LP/DD 2016

21st April 2016 at 6:28 pm

Spell

Spell is certainly an apt moniker for this relatively new power trio from Vancouver, BC. The first time I encountered the For None And All artwork whilst doing a spot of band browsing, I was honestly blown away by the mystique, the smoke, the…

Lightsabres ‘Hibernation’ LP/DD 2016

31st March 2016 at 6:23 pm

Lightsabres

Lightsabres, the solo efforts of John Strömshed (also of Tunga Moln), may well on the surface remain a somewhat lonely one-man affair. But with the launch of Hibernation, the Luleå, northern Sweden native’s fourth full length in well under three years, you get the…
