Oranssi Pazuzu ‘Värähtelijä’ CD/LP/DD 2016

Oranssi Pazuzu

If credence is given to accounts of the mystic experience, we are forced to recognise that certain mystics have succeeded in achieving a special state that goes beyond the usual feelings and perceptions of ordinary life. These men and women describe an experience of…

Hexvessel ‘When We Are Death’ CD/LP/DD 2016

2nd January 2016 at 11:48 am

Hexvessel

Hexvessel have always been capricious spirits, dwelling in a particularly darkling glade of the psych-folk forest. Yet it is with When We Are Death that they emerge, blinking, into the light of the sun and, sadly, some of the glamour of previous releases is…

Wizard Eye – S/T – LP/DD 2015

25th November 2015 at 6:57 pm

Wizard Eye - S/T

Wizard Eye is from Philadelphia. I love Philadelphia. Growing up in the middle of Pennsylvania where there wasn’t, and still isn’t, shit for rock ‘n’ roll, we’d head to the City of Brotherly Love for shows when I was kid. It was always an…

6th May 2015 at 7:17 pm

Headless Kross

Glaswegian doomsters Headless Kross first broke down my door with their colossal riffs on 2012’s Demises, two tracks of monolithic crush tinged with psychedelica. After a heavier than hell split with Lazarus Blackstar in 2013, their new record Volumes is ready to steamroll anything…

4th April 2015 at 8:11 am

Garden Of Worm

Doom metal, by its very nature and definition, moves slowly – that’s a given – but when you have a band such as Finnish trio Garden Of Worm forming in 2003, not releasing their first album until 2010 and then waiting five years to…
