Witchskull - Coven’s Will (Rise Above)

Witchskull – Coven’s Will (Rise Above)

Australia’s Witchskull are still relative newcomers to the doom scene. Formed in 2014 and with one release to their name, 2016’s “The Vast Electric Dark”, the Canberra based outfit have scrounged the depths for the kind of riffs that make up sophomore release “Coven’s Will”... Read More
Mist – Free Me of the Sun (Soulseller)

Mist – Free Me of the Sun (Soulseller)

Ljubljana in Slovenia is not a city that springs to mind when it comes to Doom. In fact the only reason I have heard of this capital is because Laibach erupted from there decades ago. Unlike their fellow country folk Mist do not offer up.. Read More
Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Given the kind of music that my own band plays, I’m surprised that I’ve never checked out Limb before. It seems like I’ve been missing out on something very special, certainly if this third L.P. is anything to go by. Prog infused and swagger-fueled doomy.. Read More
Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Something a bit different this time. Besvarjelsen (“conjuring”, in Swedish, language fans) are a Swedish doom band, featuring luscious female vocals, and a vibe so warm and relaxed it’s like sipping a quality whiskey by an open fire during the deepest of winters. I’m a.. Read More
Witchsorrow - Hexenhammer (Candlelight)

Witchsorrow – Hexenhammer (Candlelight)

Four albums into their career, British underground doom lords Witchsorrow are showing no signs of letting up on what seems like a mission to crush our souls into a fine powder with their own brand of heavy. Following on from 2015’s fine “No Light, Only.. Read More
Mos Generator – Shadowlands (Listenable Records)

Mos Generator – Shadowlands (Listenable Records)

It was 2016 when the mighty Mos Generator released the excellent ‘Abyssinia’, an album that rode high in my top 10 of the year, and has been regularly spun ever since. To support that particular release the band pounded the road, including a run with.. Read More
Sanhedrin – A Funeral for the World (Cruz Del Sur)

Sanhedrin – A Funeral for the World (Cruz Del Sur)

If you like classic, melodic heavy metal and bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest or Black Sabbath, or if you’ve liked them at one time, you should definitely check out this new band from Brooklyn, NYC. They are excellent. But don’t think of them as.. Read More
Dautha – Brethren of the Black Soil (Ván)

Dautha – Brethren of the Black Soil (Ván)

Don your priests robes, hold aloft your holy cross of evil warding and come with Dautha into times long past where unspeakable terrors lurk and the lost flame of epic 1980s doom can be found blazing on the highest peak. Yes, Dautha’s demo released in.. Read More
Cruthu – The Angle Of Eternity (Church Within)

Cruthu – The Angle Of Eternity (Church Within)

Here’s one of those rarities in reviewing for an underground site, a band I’ve actually heard of, heard, and have music from. That may sound weird, but exploring the unknown and bringing it towards, if not into, the light is how we roll at Ave.. Read More
Desolation Angels – King (Dissonance)

Desolation Angels – King (Dissonance)

Long time NWOBHM legends Desolation Angels have always been at the heavier end of the spectrum, if you have seen them live in recent years you will know what I mean. ‘King’ is the first release to feature Paul Taylor (Elixir/Midnight Messiah) on vocals, and.. Read More
Doomster Reich – Drug Magick  (Aesthetic Death)

Doomster Reich – Drug Magick (Aesthetic Death)

After telling the esteemed editor of this site that I had tickets for Yes and Jethro Tull for their respective 2018 50th anniversary tours, for some reason I got a bit of a deluge of Prog to start my review duties for the year. However,.. Read More
