13th September 2011 at 7:49 am

Throne of the Void In The Hundred Petal Lotus

Well. I’ve had this sitting in my metaphorical review pile for a good while and, despite having listened to it in its entirety a few times, I’m still completely on the fence as to its relative charms. Having deliberated over it for some time,…

Queen Elephantine

Throne Of The Void In The Hundred Petal Lotus - S/T - CD 2010

Queen Elephantine ‘Kailash’ CD 2008

Stoner droner mystics Queen Elephantine, the oft travelling Lords of (sonic) Lethargy, have produced yet another striking opus of snaking whirring trip rock (that isn’t actually ‘rock’) that hums and glides through your addled brain like the dawning realisation that you are imprisoned in…

Queen Elephantine ‘Yatra’ CD 2008 & ‘Tartarus’ CDEP 2008

18th August 2008 at 9:12 am

Queen Elephantine

Imagine the eldritch and arcane sound of a cultish band of blind, hooded, albino acolytes, engrossed within their eerie sonic witch-mantra, performing before a vast cyclopean temple of ice-cold basalt, jutting forth into an alien sky of pure indigo, triple moons illuminating the sickly…
