Pyramido ‘Salt’ CD 2011

2nd June 2011 at 9:20 am

Pyramido

Pyramido have emerged from Sweden as one of most exciting bands to be playing music that merges hardcore with doom. The album has a quintessentially Swedish groove and swing to it. Power of hook and groove coursing through your veins with such magnificent mesmerising…

Lords Of Bukkake ‘Desorden Y Rencor’ CD 2010

19th August 2010 at 8:51 am

Lords Of Bukkake

Wilfully nasty sludge from genuine Spaniards, as opposed to strange Japanese men who sing in spanish, here on the unpleasantly-named Lords Of Bukkake’s sophomore release, and their first for Israeli label of repute Totalrust Music – a label that knows quality doom when they…

Highgate ‘Shrines To The Warhead’ CD 2010

9th August 2010 at 8:48 am

Highgate

Four tracks of doomed out pure filth for your delectation, here, on the sophomore release from Kentucky-based trio Highgate. This time out it’s dirty, stinking DOOM all the way, as ‘Shrines To the Warhead’ is almost devoid of the Black metal influence that the…

Pyramido ‘Sand’ CD 2009

22nd September 2009 at 9:02 am

Pyramido

Jesus, some bands really don’t make it easy do they? Swedish sludge crew Pyramido give nothing away at first glance. Let’s take the name for a start, with Eyehategod and Bongzilla you pretty much know what you’re getting from the start but Pyramido sends…

Mourning Dawn ‘For The Fallen’ CD 2009

21st August 2009 at 9:11 am

Mourning Dawn

One of the virtues of heavy music being so relatively young a genre is that it can still be bent and twisted into ways that Robert Johnson would never imagined as he made his way to the crossroads to trade his soul for the…

Hyadningar ‘The Weak Creation’ CD 2009

20th August 2009 at 8:48 am

Hyadningar

Black Metal can often be a genre that is derided from the outside, I mean how best to prepare myself for this review? Do I listen to something kvlt and true? Do I make a crack about corpse paint and church burning or, Satan…

Paganus – S/T – CD 2008

7th April 2008 at 9:12 am

Paganus - S/T - CD 2008

The first thing I’ll say about this release is it’s certainly a grower, with more going on than first meets the eye. The subtly of this album became apparent to me by the amount of spins I had to give it to acquire any…

Highgate – S/T – CD 2008

7th April 2008 at 8:58 am

Highgate - S/T - CD 2008

It becomes apparent within the first 5 minute’s of this CD that the listener is in for a treat. An ominous sample about death from bomb blast over a slow and nasty riff, with hate filled, screamed vocals. This recording is presented as one…

Volition – S/T – CD 2008

19th January 2008 at 9:14 am

Volition - S/T - CD 2008

Hailing from the bleak ship building town of Barrow-in-Furness, it’s no surprise that Volition specialize in penning cold, pessimistic doom. The quintet’s well received demo led the band to sign with Israeli based Total Rust Recordings and this is their debut full length. The…

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…
