Satan’s Satyrs – The Lucky Ones (Riding Easy Records/Bad Omen)

A certain amount of excitement develops whenever Satan’s Satyrs release some new work. The band remains active with a steady stream of LP’s, split releases and EP’s but “The Lucky Ones” does find them in a slightly different space with… Continue Reading →

Brant Bjork – Mankind Woman (Heavy Psych)

King of the Desert Brant Bjork is back once again, and luckily for me, I get to talk/write about him once more. 2016’s ’Tao Of The Devil’ was a phenomenal release in all aspects; loaded with sweet stoner grooves, filthy… Continue Reading →

Noisepicker – Peace Off (Exile On Mainstream)

When I was a youngster, if I wasn’t immersed in a world of Hendrix, Black Sabbath or Iron Maiden, I was busily exploring the blues. The darkness of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters; those bourbon… Continue Reading →

Earthless – Black Heaven (Nuclear Blast)

Do you have any Earthless in your life? If the answer to that question is a resounding “no”, it’s time for you to remedy that immediately, and before you go searching for the back catalogue this San Diego three piece… Continue Reading →

1000 Mods – Repeated Exposure To… (Ouga Booga and The Mighty Oug)

Greece seems to have a talent pool of stoner inspired bands. 1000 Mods sit happily amongst them and new album, “Repeated Exposure To…” is a continuation of the band’s growing output. Having supported bands like Graveyard, The Black Keys and… Continue Reading →

Arctic – S/T (Outer Battery)

Californian stoner riff worshippers, Arctic have just landed their self-titled debut after a number of years touring. Taking their cue from classic names such as Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath, Sleep and Jimi Hendrix, they’ve served up a slab of fuzz… Continue Reading →

Vampyromorpha – Fiendish Tales of Doom (Trollzorn)

Rarely does a title describe so succinctly the contents of an album. Vampyromorpha (not sure about that name) eschew the current trend of reworking Sabbath numbers or trying to be the new Blue Cheer in favour of mixing Pentagram and… Continue Reading →

Brutus – Wandering Blind (Svart)

Retrosexual. How is that not a name yet? It could describe someone of any gender or sexuality who gets their rocks off by living with both bellbottom enclosed ankles in the period between 1968 and 1973. My sweet riff lord… Continue Reading →

Psychedelic Witchcraft – The Vision (Soulseller)

Legend has it that the ancient gods of Blues and Doom brought forth a four piece from the heart of Tuscany (Florence) to spread their message through the medium of music. With divine backing and a sultry and seductively voiced… Continue Reading →

Slabdragger – Rise Of The Dawncrusher (Holy Roar)

The name says it all really. Slabdragger. Immediately, weight and might spring to mind. We couple this with the words “Rise Of The Dawncrusher” and it’s hard not to salivate. Let us be under no false illusion, Slabdragger’s new offering… Continue Reading →

Tombstoned – ST (Svart)

I will confess that I was a little confused when asked by my editor to review this; hadn’t I just reviewed Tombstones a couple of weeks ago? Nope, this is Tombstoned, a different, albeit confusingly similarly named band. Hey, I… Continue Reading →

Brutus – Behind The Mountains (Svart)

The population of Scandinavia is not huge, with about 20 million folks spread between Sweden, Norway and Denmark, and yet as well as a high degree of self-sufficiency in terms of heavy industry, electronics, and the like, the region seems… Continue Reading →
