Old Man Lizard – True Misery (Wasted State Records)

Where the bloody hell does time go? A check through my personal electronic archives shows it was October 2015 I last reviewed Old Man Lizard with their prior self titled release, and even longer before that when I last saw… Continue Reading →

As we hit December silly season commences and for the next couple of weeks there are multiple shows on practically every night and we aint talking pantomimes. Round the corner Terror and assorted crews are tearing The Underworld a new… Continue Reading →

Zapruder – S/T (Apathia)

“Friendship, fun and rock n roll” is the statement behind this mind-twisting album from Zapruder. At its musical heart is a mathcore style strongly reminiscent of Dillinger Escape Plan, so you can expect to be screamed at. The manic screaming… Continue Reading →

Junkpile Jimmy – Wants You Dead (Cartel Ilustre)

Err…where to start. Ok, somewhere around 2005 when this was originally recorded and shelved by I assume Jimmy I guess. Or whoever the Californian behind this is. Yeah. Now it’s here. Just what the…   what the Hell is it? Well… Continue Reading →

All Them Witches – ATW (New West Records)

If like me, you were only vaguely aware of All Them Witches, it would be fair to expect them to be an out and out doom band from their name alone, fitting in so well as they would with such… Continue Reading →

Hypnos – Set Fire to the Sky (The Sign Recordings)

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 →

King Dude – Music to Make War To (Ván Records)

Having dealt with the topic of love and all its casualties on 2016’s ‘Sex’, TJ Cowgill tackles the polar opposite on latest album ‘Music to Make War To’. Over the course of seven records King Dude’s sound has shifted and… Continue Reading →

Vintage Caravan – Gateways (Nuclear Blast)

Formidable: that’s an interesting word. Fans of heavy music know that one of the finest attributes is the respect paid to the originators of the style. Sometimes the influences overshadow the originality and we slide into “retro” territory. Then bands… Continue Reading →

Lucifer- Lucifer II (Century Media)

Johanna Sadonis might best be described as dynamic. After abruptly leaving her former band, The Oath in 2014 she quickly moved towards creating Lucifer. No time or efforts were wasted as ex-Cathedral riff master Gaz Jennings came on board to… Continue Reading →

Zeal & Ardor – Stranger Fruit (MKVA)

When the debut Zeal & Ardor album impacted it really was that rarity of originality, strength of concept and touch of execution that marked it out as something very special indeed. The fact that it would be set upon by… Continue Reading →

Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

It was a dark time many months ago when Graveyard called it quits. Mr. Finger-on-the-pulse as I am, I actually didn’t find out about their decision to split until 3 months after the announcement, by which time the band had… Continue Reading →
