The Japanese get all the coolest things in life first: sushi, bullet trains, ninjas, walkmans, ‘Made in Japan’, and now a largely instrumental split disc between country natives Eternal Elysium and Belgian swamp-dredgers SardoniS. Celebrating the six-date tour of Japan in mid-October that the…

Groan / Vinum Sabbatum – Split CD 2011

For a label barely 2 years into their existence, Doomanoid Records have grown at a rate far beyond their tender age from their inauspicious beginnings to a label putting out some very fine, not to mention imaginative packages…just check out the new Misty Morning…

Caretaker / Undersmile – Split CDEP 2011

Split releases can be odd little things. Sometimes they highlight musically sympathetic like minded souls and at other times they showcase musically disparate acts in an attempt to cross pollinate genres and gain a wider audience for all. This split release featuring two tracks…

6th August 2011 at 9:00 am

The Moon Mistress / Snakerider

For those yet unfamiliar with this record the only advice I can offer is that you should immediately improve the situation and grab the CDs as fast as you can. Diverse combination of monolithic occult doom from the very depths of eternal glaciers and…

Aquilonian & Sollubi - Split CD 2010

Containing as it does the first recorded material from ex-Bongzilla duo Aquilonian, I guess you could call this release ‘eagerly anticipated’ by lovers of heavy-ass music. Throw in the added bonus of them sharing the disc with the monstrous Sollubi, and I guess you…

Iroha & Fragment ‘Bittersweet’ CD/LP 2010

17th June 2010 at 8:46 am

Iroha & Fragment

An interesting CD, here, with a heavy Justin Broadrick connection. Iroha feature Andy Swan, ex-of Broadrick’s Final project AND current Jesu bassist Diarmuid Dalton. Their sound is, well, more than a little reminiscent of Jesu….to say the least. This recording was made in collaboration…

War Coma / Jesus Bruiser – Split CD 2010

Punk is an attitude. I don’t win any journalistic awards for pointing out that hackneyed nugget of insight. It’s been stated a millions times before. It’s just that these two young bands embody that ethos so acutely. War Coma (bloody good name) hail from…
