Goatess ‘Purgatory Under New Management’ CD/LP/DD 2016

22nd April 2016 at 6:45 pm

Goatess

In spite of its self-evidently gloomy name, ‘doom’ is a vibrant genre. Contrary to the expectations of some, the scene is not exemplified by bearded man with long, scraggly hair wearing sandwich boards and proclaiming that ‘the end is nigh!’ (although the beards and…

Oranssi Pazuzu ‘Värähtelijä’ CD/LP/DD 2016

Oranssi Pazuzu

If credence is given to accounts of the mystic experience, we are forced to recognise that certain mystics have succeeded in achieving a special state that goes beyond the usual feelings and perceptions of ordinary life. These men and women describe an experience of…

Peace Killers - S/T

When a band’s bio claims that a band have a combined 40 years in the Sacramento punk and hardcore scene I will take a sideways glance at them and raise an eyebrow…this could be interesting I think to myself being a lover of things…

High Priest Of Saturn ‘Son Of Earth And Sky’ CD/LP/DD 2016

1st February 2016 at 7:24 pm

High Priest Of Saturn

Norway is known more for it’s glaciers, coastal fjords and black metal than it is for a laid back psychedelic 60s/70s vibe, but that is exactly what High Priest Of Saturn are, determined to disprove with their latest outing. Bursting onto the scene with…

Night Viper – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2015

21st November 2015 at 3:20 pm

Night Viper - S/T

In my book, if you’re going to call your band something as naughty as Night Viper, then you’d better show up with the following kit list already well packed: 1) A truckload of neck-snapping riffs 2) A vocalist that sounds somewhere in the middle…

Sabbath Assembly – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2015

7th September 2015 at 6:53 pm

Sabbath Assembly - S/T

Never walk into something religious unprepared. Not only is it so that you don’t offend someone, but you also might offend your own senses. I mean, there are animals you shouldn’t eat, gestures you shouldn’t make, so there ought to be music you should…

Skepticism ‘Ordeal’ CD/LP/DVD 2015

14th August 2015 at 7:02 pm

Skepticism

Regarded as one of the pioneers of the infamous funeral doom genre, Skepticism has a long history of making heavy as fuck music at the slowest possible pace. The band has been around for almost 25 years and strikes a chord again with new…
