Cybernetic Witch Cult – Absurdum Ad Nauseam (Independent)

This Cornish psychedelic stoner band have been active for a while now, this album represents their fourth full length effort. Compared to their first couple of releases, the tempo has gone down and the heaviness has increased. Rather than your… Continue Reading →

Workshed – Workshed (Rise Above)

After nearly a quarter of a century away, two former Cathedral members have returned with Workshed. Namely, Mark Wharton and Adam Lehan, whom are well respected for their doom heritage, and Workshed simply personifies their importance and influence within the… Continue Reading →

Slomatics – Canyons (Black Bow)

Fifteen years is a long time in metal. It’s even longer when you play the gargantuan drawn out sludge that Belfast’s Slomatics do.  The appropriately named “Canyons” is their 6th full length release and having released a trilogy of sorts in the… Continue Reading →

Age Of The Wolf – Ouroboric Trances (Aural Music)

Let’s be frank here if I were to say Stoner, Sludge, Doom Metal what would your first thoughts be aside from naming checking 100 or so bands in this genre? Brown notes? Grimy basement venues with a bunch of other… Continue Reading →

The Well – Death and Consolation (Riding Easy Records)

Riding Easy Records are at it again. Emptying the murky bong water into the ears of the world. On this occasion it is the third coming of Austin three piece The Well. “Death and Consolation” is the follow up to… Continue Reading →

Albez Duz – Enigmatic Rites (Listenable)

This is the third album from Berlin’s Albez Duz. The word occult seems to be bandied around a lot with them, and apparently this harks back to the drug-driven early days of heavy metal. There’s definitely something old school about… 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 →

Age Of Taurus – The Colony Slain (Rise Above Records)

Bizarre as it sounds, but it has been an all too long five years since the rather excellent debut by Age Of Taurus, namely the doom laden majesty that was ‘Desperate Souls of Tortured Times’, a fact that surprised me… Continue Reading →

Septic Tank – Rotting Civilization (Rise Above)

As the old saying goes “A leopard can’t change its spots”. When you apply this to bands and side projects it is mostly true- musicians tend to naturally gravitate towards what they know. In the case of Septic Tank, this… Continue Reading →

Doom Metal Lexicanum – Aleksey Evdokimov (Cult Never Dies)

I’ll start out here by saying this is some book. A suitably hefty tome and no mistake, wrapped in another marvellous cover by artist David Thiérrée (a print of which is also available from the publisher for a modest add-on… Continue Reading →
