Corinth ‘Frontier’ DD 2014

22nd February 2015 at 1:37 pm

Corinth

Sludge Metal. You all know the deal. The Melvins laid it down, Acid Bath oiled it up, Bongzilla and Electric Wizard drugged it, Crowbar, EyeHateGod and Buzzov*en stoked its furnaces, Godflesh, Mistress and Scorn re-programmed it, Cavity smashed it, Raging Speedhorn and Iron Monkey…

22nd February 2015 at 1:31 pm

Odota

Jarmo Nuutre is a peculiar figure. A graphic designer, car fanatic, tattoo artist and a lover of all things sludge and heavy it seems. Under the name Odota he has created a peculiar sounding, sludge infused black metal record with the title Fever Marshall,…

Kustodian ‘Methlehem Steel’ DD 2014

15th February 2015 at 12:06 pm

Kustodian

Back in 2012, The Sleeping Shaman discovered a dark spirit lurking below the streets of New York City. That spirit went by one name and one name only: Kustodian. This mysterious one-member studio project sought to re-imagine Godflesh’s late ‘80s template for mechanised brutality…

Bellringer

Diiiiiiing-DONG! Texas shitkickers Bellringer totally deliver the goods on this here debut EP, saying what they need to say succinctly in but four songs whilst simultaneously covering a healthy amount of stylistic ground and leaving me salivating for more, but then you’d expect no…

Dö

Resurrection Men ‘Resurrection Men Must Die!’ DD 2014

9th January 2015 at 10:53 am

Resurrection Men

It’s a curious title that Resurrection Men have sprung upon us for this, their debut release which was splurged out of The Moonbase Recording Studio at the arse end of 2014. On the one hand, it could be condemning the re-re-re-release of the “retro”…

Thorr-Axe ‘Gates Of Winter’ CD/DD 2015

8th January 2015 at 9:41 am

Thorr-Axe

The name Thorr-Axe was what attracted me to this band. I’ll admit it, I read it and thought, ‘there’ll be some fine, sword swinging Grand Magus style doom right there with a name like that.’ I suppose it seems a bit daft after you…

Wild Rocket

Dropping out of warp drive just long enough to beam out an urgent transmission, Dublin astro’nauts Wild Rocket set the controls for the heart of the sun, make like a fiery phoenix and go full-blown supernova on this, their debut album. Straight out of…

Whalerider ‘Thanatos’ CD/DD 2014

21st December 2014 at 10:30 am

Whalerider

Whalerider is, first off, a BRILLIANT name for a band. How did no one come up with this one before? These Germans have mixed us up an album oozing with 70s psychedelica, stoner rock and some dashes of doom to bring us Thanatos. First…
