Hymn – S/T – DD 2014

22nd February 2014 at 1:16 pm

Hymn - S/T

Hymn hails from Norway and makes music as a two piece. So just guitar and drums is enough for this duo to make some music that hits you like a tidal wave. Their latest record only has two songs on it and is titled…

Dune ‘Progenitor’ DD 2013

12th February 2014 at 11:06 am

Dune

You know what’s really nice? Pressing that play button and having what you hear instantly put a big fat grin on your big fat face. I’m not talking about knowing, “getting it” self congratulation, nor am I referring to some kind of ironic smirk….

Rosetta ‘The Anaesthete’ CD/LP/DD 2013

1st February 2014 at 10:26 am

Rosetta

OK, first off, Rosetta were a new entity to me, I had heard the name kicked around by a few people and with Debemur Morti handling the release of this record, expectations were high. On first listen however, I must admit it was a…

Palefeather – S/T – CD 2014

28th January 2014 at 8:48 am

Palefeather - S/T

The unexpected is a great thing. I must admit when I heard Palefeather‘s description (“Pink Floyd with a bit of post rock”) I was basically expecting bog standard post rock with a few noodles, but what we have here is a very languid pure-prog…

Metal fans, especially those of a more extreme persuasion, tend to be very Conservative when it comes to their music. We celebrate ‘traditional’ takes on the genre, often at the expense of some of the more innovative and original artists out there. Therefore, its…

Men Of Fortune ‘Time Lovingly Bled’ LP 2013

6th January 2014 at 10:44 am

Men Of Fortune

Men Of Fortune – hard to pigeonhole, hard to review. They sort of sound like a lot of things, but don’t sound like a lot of things as well – it’s not riff driven enough for metal, but it’s kinda metal, it has the…

Mountain God ‘Experimentation On The Unwilling’ CS/DD 2013

23rd December 2013 at 12:52 pm

Mountain God

16th December 2013 at 10:03 am

Seven Hundredth Unicorn

It’s a great feeling standing in a tiny pub on a cold November night with a small but dedicated bunch of strangers out to grab their fill of local underground heavy vibes when a support band hits the stage and blows the collective lot…
