19th June 2017 at 7:55 pm

Crippled Black Phoenix

As far as music goes, Crippled Black Phoenix are hard to really put in a box. Their sound really is something special, embracing different aspects in a mixture that is dreamy and heavy at the same time. Bronze is their sixth full length effort…

Zhrine ‘Unortheta’ 2017

19th June 2017 at 7:13 pm

Zhrine

On the face of it, the name Unortheta doesn’t give much away. Neither does Zhrine, the name of the Icelandic band behind it. The cover art is the only thing that hints at the madness within. Cliffs suspended on a cuboid island that hovers…

Emptiness ‘Not For Music’ 2017

13th June 2017 at 7:12 pm

Emptiness

For some strange reason, everyone keeps calling Emptiness a black/death metal band. I might be quite late to the party (Not For Music is the band’s fifth full-length, not including three demos), but I don’t get the use of the label. Although it is…

HARK ‘Machinations’ 2017

16th May 2017 at 6:35 pm

HARK

HARK’s first album swaggered in and grabbed you like an amorous first world president; it was brash, bold and in your face, defying you to ignore it with its blend of stoner, heavy psych and face melting progressive angular rock. Headed up by former…

Black Cobra ‘Imperium Simulacra’ CD/LP/DD 2016

20th March 2016 at 10:55 am

Black Cobra

Just as tick precedes tock, as clip leads clop and as bish paves the way for bosh, so too does the announcement of a new Black Cobra album herald the thought of your brain being pummelled back to where it rightly belongs: into complete…

Kylesa ‘Exhausting Fire’ CD/LP/DD 2015

10th October 2015 at 1:26 pm

Kylesa

Kylesa are a band I’ve followed for many years, and they’ve been a difficult band to keep on top of. Typifying that Savannah sludge sound in their early days, they’d added all kinds of ingredients to the pot, from shimmering psychedelica to post rock…

KEN mode ‘Success’ CD/LP/DD 2015

11th July 2015 at 3:00 pm

KEN mode

Manitoban misfits KEN mode have always defied what is expected of them. The word ‘unique’ is bandied about in relation to myriads of other artists and albums, but the three piece from Winnipeg have always trod their own path and created a sound that…

Weedeater ‘Goliathon’ CD/LP/DD 2015

2nd June 2015 at 4:36 pm

Weedeater

In a genre of rudimentary self-abuse, filled with strange tales of destruction and mis-adventure, there are heavyweights that surpass the tedium of an old image and its following scene. They have the effect of making it look edgy, like Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond…
