Taunt / Stumm – Split 7″ – 2007

7th October 2007 at 9:18 am

Taunt / Stumm - Split 7" - 2007

This 7″ was initially released in June 07, but due to problems with the 1st pressing, Calculon decided to do a re-call and get the record re-pressed and re-released in August 2007 which is how it should have been first time around, so if…

Zozobra ‘Harmonic Tremors’ CD 2007

15th February 2007 at 8:57 am

Zozobra

The latest side project from Cave In’s Caleb Scofield. Edging between sludge and an almost space rock feel, this debut album could not be more aptly titled. Distorted riffs being thrown to the background by Caleb’s singing, and then complimenting the grungy feedback layered…

Rwake ‘Voices of Omens’ CD 2007

1st February 2007 at 9:24 am

Rwake

In my opinion, Rwake were on the right track with their previous release, ‘If You Walk Before You Crawl, You Crawl Before You Die’, but they seemed to have strayed slightly from that design. It’s hard to say whether or not this will be…

Volition - S/T - Demo 2007

This is the debut release from Volition who hail from the cold dark depths of the North West of England and boy does it show in their music! They’ve been around now for about 18 months and have already built up quite a following…

Amenra ‘Mass III’ CD 2007

1st February 2007 at 9:01 am

Amenra

Amenra have the feel of a band, whom given the chance, could get the whole ‘Atmospheric Sludge’ metal thing down to a tee. It’s an impressive listen to anyone who’s a fan of the more vocally searing bands like old Isis. There’s a rare…

Minsk ‘The Ritual Fires Of Abandonment’ CD 2007

1st February 2007 at 8:55 am

Minsk

It seems Minsk has found the direction that suits them perfectly. This is a much more matured release compared to their last LP, ‘Out of a Center Which is Neither Dead nor Alive’, not that you couldn’t hear the progression that was already apparent,…

Rwake ‘If You Walk Before You Crawl, You Crawl Before You Die’ CD 2004

28th January 2007 at 8:45 am

Rwake

It seems that Rwake is only getting better with time. This is their third full-length LP, and what an experience it is! Pure chaotic, harsh vocals that, at times, sound more akin to a black metal band than they do a sludge/doom band. But…

5th August 2006 at 8:39 am

Unearthly Trance

Up from the cold dark depths comes New York hatemongers Unearthly Trance with their latest misanthropic opus ‘Trident’. Each track on this release is a dark and twisted journey, with a new level in song writing being attained by the band. The CD begins…

V/A ‘Heaviosity’ CD 2005

6th January 2006 at 8:54 am

V/A

Heaviosity is a cracking release from newly formed UK label Gallipoli Records. Although not completely original in concept (who remembers the ‘Contains No Holy Additives’ Comp CD’s from the late 90’s?), it’s a refreshing change to see that all 16 bands, who come from…

Eyehategod ‘Preaching The End-Time Message’ CD 2005

4th January 2006 at 8:56 am

Eyehategod

‘Preaching The End-Time Message’ is a Sludge fuelled compilation from those Southern wasters Eyehategod, which features alternative takes, rare & live tracks as well as 3 demo cuts of newer material! Don’t expect any big budget recordings on this release though, as it’s more…
