Hexvessel – All Tree (Century Media / Prophecy)

Surely the album title should actually be ‘All Hug A Tree’ but I guess that would have been a bit too obvious even if it is the sort of practice Finnish forest folk Hexvessel do on a daily basis. Not… Continue Reading →

Idle Hands – Don’t Waste Your Time (Eisenwald)

Band number 72,453 from the Portland Oregon area. Not sure what is in the water there but it seems to make everyone at least attempt to become a musician, thankfully with this lot, despite the title we are not completely… Continue Reading →

Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

New types of music are needed even if they hark back to the past, synthwave is officially a thing now and boy is it big. If you grew up on a diet of horror, action and post-apocalyptic films many of… Continue Reading →

Rainbowlicker – I Saw The Light But Turned It Off (Svart)

Both the project name (a duo is not a band surely) and the title of the album grabbed me by the beard hair and span me round when I first heard the prom at the arse end of 2016.  After… Continue Reading →

Okkultokrati – Raspberry Dawn (Southern Lord)

Hailing from Oslo, Norway, Okkultokrati belong to the Black Hole Crew, alongside the likes of Blackest Woods and Haust. The band have quite a colourful history; in 2013, guitarist BlackRace injured his hand and was told he could not play… Continue Reading →

Suns of Thyme – Cascades (Napalm)

Genres are ever expanding. No one wants to be constrained to a pigeon hole so they create new ones for others to then be forced into.  Berlin’s “Suns of Thyme” are described as Krautgaze which I-with Holmes like deduction take… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – When We Are Death (Century Media)

I have been a little starved of hearing the distinct dulcet tones of ex-patriot singer Matthew McNerney aka Kvohst of late. His Beastmilk project rebranded as Grave Pleasures have gained more mainstream success and latest album Dreamcrash didn’t see its… Continue Reading →

C R O W N –Natron (Candlelight)

Two years ago, two men and a drum machine emerged from ‘capitale des vins d’Alsace’, ready to burst eardrums and compact spines under the hefty weight of their gargantuan riffs and Neurosis worship. Since then, the duo have gone from… Continue Reading →

Temples Festival – Bristol Motion 3-4/5/14

Day 2 Sat 3rd May  Well this was an odd day for me I’m afraid. Good intentions had gone out of the window and distracted by Bristol we arrived late for… well the first half I’m afraid. Still, for me… Continue Reading →

Sabbath Assembly – Quaternity (Svart)

Whilst so many bands babble incessantly about Satan and declare their hatred towards God Sabbath Assembly have a direction that is like a breath of fresh air and go into depths far more fully and comprehensively than so many of… Continue Reading →

Live Evil Festival – London Garage 19/10/13

This was my first time at Live Evil Festival although it has been running for a couple of years. The premise is to put on bands over two days (along with a Friday evening pre-show which we were not at) who… Continue Reading →
