Desert Storm – Omens (APF Records)

Oxford sludge metallers Desert Storm have been consistently releasing solid albums and building a name for themselves on the metal circuit for well over a decade; laying waste to many a gig venue across the UK and Europe.  Previous releases,… Continue Reading →

The Ditch and the Delta – S/T (Prosthetic Records)

With a name like The Ditch and the Delta my expectation was to hear the blues; born from Mississippi, paying homage to the great blues artists while swigging from a bottle of moonshine.  That expectation was rather misguided, as the… Continue Reading →

Hyborian – Volume II (Season of Mist)

It’s been three years since Mastodon released the magnificent Emperor of Sand, and with an almost flawless back catalogue it was with some intrigue that I listened to this, their eighth studio album…  Hang on a minute…  Are you telling… Continue Reading →

Golden Core – Fimbultýr (Fysisk Format)

It’s fair to say the doom metal scene is a tad cramped, and it will take something special to shine brightly in the hazy fog that surrounds the genre. Could this second full length from Oslo garage stoner rockers, Golden… Continue Reading →

The Glad Husbands – Safe Places (Atypeek Music)

With a name like The Glad Husbands you could be forgiven for thinking that they can be found playing second fiddle to Mumford and Sons at a cheese rolling festival in Gloucester; however you’d be way off the mark.  As… Continue Reading →

Throatsnapper – About the Dead (Consouling Sounds)

With a name like Throatsnapper you’d be well within your rights to expect either a volatile hard core punk band spitting out vitriolic lyrics, or at the very least an intimidating blackened death metal band that take devilish glee inflicting… Continue Reading →

Coilguns – Watchwinders (Hummus Records)

You’re probably well aware of some of Switzerland’s biggest exports; army knives, chocolates, cheese, clocks, and cowbells, but did you consider hard core punk metal? No?  Maybe you should.  You may be pleasantly surprised by Coilguns and their third full… Continue Reading →

Opium Lord – Vore (Sludgelord Records)

There’s something decidedly foul going on with this, the second full length from Birmingham misery merchants, Opium Lord.  Vore is thoroughly dark, unpleasant and violent; it’s a glimpse into the minds of some twisted individuals.  The album contains elements of… Continue Reading →

Vokonis – Grasping Time (The Sign Records)

Grasping Time is the third full length from Swedish stoner doom rockers Vokonis and undoubtedly proves they have an unparalleled grasp of times gone by.  The album feels like a throwback to the 1970s, from the mystical hallucinatory hazed green… Continue Reading →
