Gold ‘No Image’ CD/LP/DD 2015

19th October 2015 at 7:10 pm

Gold

Gold hail from The Netherlands and have deep roots in the national scene, with ex-members of The Devil’s Blood, Madball, Born From Pain and Malkovich in their ranks, their resulting sound is surprisingly free of hardcore elements. What remains is a hint of The…

DoctoR DooM ‘This Seed We Have Sown’ CD/LP/DD 2015

4th October 2015 at 1:50 pm

DoctoR DooM

Initial impressions just looking at this album, with a name like DoctoR DooM and the shadowy figures on the cover, you might think you’re in for some sort of titanic, occult doom style nonsense…and the first minute and a half when you stick this…

V/A ‘Sweet Times – Volume 2’ – 4 Way Split 7″ 2014

7th October 2014 at 10:14 am

V/A ‘Sweet Times - Volume 2′

Growing up in the 80’s as a young metal head you would often find yourself drawn to the output of a particular label. Certain labels, such as Earache and Peaceville seemed to release albums of a consistent style and level that inspired a certain…

Heat ‘Labyrinth’ CD/LP/DD 2014

5th October 2014 at 1:27 pm

Heat

Heat’s self-titled debut was a decent stab at heavy, retro 70’s blues rock that chased hard at the heels of bands such as Witchcraft and Graveyard and was a good foothold for the band but this follow up sees a consolidation of the band’s…

Brimstone Coven – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2014

7th August 2014 at 9:15 am

Brimstone Coven - S/T

There is nothing flashy and hip about the West-Virginia quartet Brimstone Coven. They play occult rock in the vein of Black Sabbath and Pentagram that won the Metal Blade label over already. With their self-titled debut they probably want to convince you just as…

Electric Citizen ‘Sateen’ CD/LP 2014

12th June 2014 at 9:57 am

Electric Citizen

I cringe when I hear the phrase in reviews “female fronted”. Not that I am against women singers, or think they do not belong, it just seems like a cop out, its music, no one says “male fronted” when talking about bands, so what’s…

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell ‘Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em’ CD/LP 2014

19th May 2014 at 9:55 am

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell

The old adage “never judge a book by it’s cover” could just as easily apply to albums, and yet the artwork for ‘Check ‘Em Before You Wreck ‘Em’, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s second full length effort, seems to perfectly belie its musical content. The…

Mos Generator ‘Electric Mountain Majesty’ CD/LP/DD 2014

25th April 2014 at 9:22 am

Mos Generator

Tony Reed is just one of those guys that you really want to hate…whether it’s Stone Axe, Heavy Pink, his numerous production/mixing/mastering jobs, his occasional random forays into solo dicking about or his work with Mos Generator he just somehow seems to nail it…

The Golden Grass – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2014

7th April 2014 at 10:27 am

The Golden Grass - S/T

I’m a suspicious kind of guy, what can I say? Maybe it has something to do with the policing here in the United Kingdom, maybe it has something to do with reading Nietzsche at a young age… whatever it is, I’m a cynic. So…

Hair Of The Dog – S/T – DD 2014

26th March 2014 at 9:09 am

Hair Of The Dog - S/T

So they may or may not be named after the Nazareth song…let’s just assume they are…and they’re from Edinburgh, which is in Scotland, home of Nazareth! So now we’ve set up a direct link to Scotland’s greatest ever band, this has to bode well…
