Transport League – A Million Volt Scream (Mighty Music)

Hammerhands – Model Citizen (S/R)

Not sure what they’re gargling in Ontario these days? From first track until last, the vocals ocellate from screamo, shouted barking to gargled, tar thick growling that sounds like a dying victim of a great white shark attack trying to… Continue Reading →

Pale Divine – S/T (Shadow Kingdom Records)

Veteran doom crew Pale Divine break a six year silence with this new, self titled LP. The Pennsylvania based band continue to remain true to their classic doom roots and the genre picking up where 2012’s “Painted Windows Black” left… Continue Reading →

Interview – Twelve Boar

Ladies and gents, many in the world of metal, particularly the extreme side of things that Ave Noctum regularly feature, can sometimes be seen from the outside world (and pretentious insiders too!) as “grimm”, “kvlt”, and total strangers to the… Continue Reading →

Antisect – The Rising Of The Lights (Rise Above)

Old crustbags never die, it just smells like it. Ah yes Antisect, the original squat the lot Anarcho punks have a hell of a history behind them which stretches right back to 1982 and has somehow resisted and existed and… Continue Reading →

Jackie D – The J Spot (Infected Records)

OK before I start let’s just shift this here elephant out of the room; that’s a terrible cover and this day and age I’m not convinced there’s an excuse unless it’s deliberately bad. Thankfully this isn’t an art review. Sadly,… Continue Reading →

HARK – Machinations (Season Of Mist)

Bewildering. It can be a good or a bad description. I think the last time that word fell to nicely summing up music for me was Mastodon’s ‘balance point’ album Blood Mountain; the one where their sludge based heaviness still… Continue Reading →

Brant Bjork and the Low Desert Punk Band – Tao Of The Devil (Napalm)

“I got all that I need… I got the green…” These are the ten words which open this album, and adequately serve as a synopsis of what to expect. Stereotypical? Perhaps.. But when you look at the mastermind behind this… Continue Reading →

XII Boar – Beyond The Valley Of The Triclops (S/R)

Whiskey drenched vocals, Southern state groove and big ass riffs. These are three things you can say about fast rising UK stoner rock three piece XII Boar. Formed in 2010, the three piece have been riffing their way to the… Continue Reading →

Valient Thorr – Old Salt (Napalm)
