Sonic Wolves ‘He Said’ 7″/DD 2016

13th May 2016 at 7:16 pm

Sonic Wolves

The sun-drenched vineyards and sleepy villages of Northern Italy’s Piedmont region are hardly renowned for producing quality heavy music, but for well over a decade now, Ufomammut’s psychotropic brand of space-doom has put the city of Alessandria on the map. Featuring Ufomammut’s own Vito…

The Heads ‘Burning Up With… Live At Roadburn 2015’ LP/DD 2016

4th May 2016 at 5:54 pm

The Heads

In some ways it’s pretty weird to be holding the vinyl of a live show you actually attended. I mean, sure, it’s a good kinda weird but I don’t know, you remember things differently than they felt in that warm, dark, beer-n-smoke-in-hand moment than…

Valley Of The Sun

Cincinnati, Ohio’s own Valley of the Sun have a new record coming out on the Swedish Fuzzorama Records and it’s called Volume Rock. I’m a thirty-six year old man and few words get me as excited as “volume” and “rock.”  If I had a…

9th April 2016 at 8:40 am

Suns Of Thunder

Let’s start this review with a little geography lesson. Wales is the largest county in England. It is owned by Prince Charles, but he chooses not to live there (he also owns Cornwall but doesn’t live there either). It does have its own government…

Lightsabres ‘Hibernation’ LP/DD 2016

31st March 2016 at 6:23 pm

Lightsabres

Lightsabres, the solo efforts of John Strömshed (also of Tunga Moln), may well on the surface remain a somewhat lonely one-man affair. But with the launch of Hibernation, the Luleå, northern Sweden native’s fourth full length in well under three years, you get the…

The Bendal Interlude ‘Reign Of The Unblinking Eye’ LP/DD 2016

15th March 2016 at 6:55 pm

The Bendal Interlude

Liverpool’s The Bendal Interlude have been merrily sludging away for several years now. Fuelled by Stu Taylor’s bottomless porridge pot of tasty riffs and backed by his SSS colleague Dave Archer’s skilful pounding behind the kit, they’ve set themselves firmly into the mould of…

KIND ‘Rocket Science’ CD/LP/DD 2015

21st February 2016 at 1:43 pm

KIND

What do you get when you put four top-rate, yet distinct and well-differentiated musicians from across the desert rock spectrum into a freezing cold, damp basement together and let them go at it hard with all their collective ideas, skills and personas? Some would…
