Mammoth Storm – Demo 2013

Mammoth Storm - Demo 2013

If you laughed at Jim Carrey’s ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective’ for attempting to slow dance through the hordes of people at that Cannibal Corpse concert, you might want to suggest to him Mammoth Storm. Something slow and sludgy might be easier to dance to…….

Multicult ‘Jaws / Luxury’ 7″/DD 2013

6th October 2013 at 11:34 am

Multicult

I wanted to do a review for We Insist’s 2009 release, but Multicult served as a fine replacement. Isn’t it strange when you are thinking about one thing, only to have another come along to give you déjà vu? I like that feeling, especially…

Black Rainbows ‘Holy Moon’ LP/CD/DD 2013

3rd October 2013 at 9:36 am

Black Rainbows

Remember when rock music was cool to listen to? Remember when it was played on MTV? Remember when MTV played music videos from start to finish? Remember when…. Black Rainbows made me remember. “Rock’s not new, son.” It’s something that every kid should be…

Sophie’s Earthquake – S/T – Digital EP 2013

27th September 2013 at 9:43 am

Sophie´s Earthquake

I’m going to get the negative out of the way straight away with this one (there is only one I’ve found, and as a mostly positive reviewer, I feel the obligation to write something less than positive from time to time), and by no…

Ak’chamel ‘Pus Ch’en’ DD 2013

26th September 2013 at 9:48 am

Ak

If the jungle was given voice, Ak’chamel has successfully channelled it through their music. Suddenly and irreversibly, it is one of those things that once heard it cannot be unheard. I can see a tribal holy man raising his stick above his head, shaking…

Tentudia – S/T – CD/DD 2013

23rd September 2013 at 9:13 am

Tentudia - S/T

Slow rolling like fossilized tumbleweed across the surface of a planet which has long-since been laid to uninhabitable waste, Tentudia’s Self Titled album casts a spell of utter desolation. Two long tracks surround the album’s crashing, yet distantly braying nougat like a bitter, yet…

Maeth ‘Oceans Into Ashes’ DD 2013

22nd September 2013 at 9:34 am

Maeth

Maeth…well…they came in off the oceanic, untold distances of soundspace (is that even a word?) with the calling of seabirds in my ears. And all I could think of was Roland Deschain, The Last Gunslinger (from Stephen King’s magnum opus The Dark Tower) lying…

Bridesmaid ‘Breakfast At Riffany’s’ LP/DD 2013

12th September 2013 at 11:02 am

Bridesmaid

As if three dusty-kilted dwarves were time transported to the present, Bridesmaid comes thundering out of the speakers with the power of Thor’s very own hammer. The trio gallantly ride that god’s lightning, bumping and crashing heavily against the grain with a punktastic flair….

Beehoover ‘The Devil And His Footmen’ CD/LP/DD

9th September 2013 at 12:27 pm

Beehoover

The almighty Beehoover’s music and I go way back. Well, time moves quite slowly for me, so even five years seems like an eternity…so, like I said, Beehoover and I go way back…. I first heard Beehoover’s Heavy Zoo album back when MySpace was…

American Sharks – S/T – CD/LP 2013

6th September 2013 at 10:27 am

American Sharks - ST

American Sharks came blasting out of my speakers for the first time with an unexpected reckless fury that I welcomed with open earholes. It’s this sort of music that truly brings happiness to me. They’re the sort of band that you can listen to…
