Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Whether a stud or not Andrew Godfrey calls Virginia home and not Transylvania but luckily this EP has something worthy of sinking its teeth into. Looking at his adopted moniker here you may well expect some sort of Finnish glam, goth, horror punk abomination but.. Read More
Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Verdigris is more commonly recognised as some kind of strange blue-green-science-thingy involving acid, copper and weather effects… Or something which Wikipedia/A Chemistry textbook/Websters Dictionary or any other useful reference material can explain much more eloquently and effectively than I can… So if you’re of the..

Interview - All Them Witches

Interview – All Them Witches

If psychedelic rock is your thing, then All Them Witches are doubtless a band you’ll have heard of and listen to frequently – the dynamic Nashville quartet managed to sell the Lexington in Islington out so quickly that a second date had to be added.. Read More
Steak - No God To Save (Ripple)

Steak – No God To Save (Ripple)

Once again, Steak, the meaty quartet from London grace our website and already, you know a juicy offering of riffs will be brought forth. With one of the founders of DesertFest in the line-up and a connection to the fabled ‘Desert Rock Scene’ over in.. Read More
Black Magic Six- Choose Death (Svart)

Black Magic Six- Choose Death (Svart)

“Black Magic Six sounds like a Satan´s masterplan, the organs of Stalin and a howl of a Kallio-werewolf – all mixed together.” Or so says the PR. You can see why my interest was peaked!  “Choose Death” is the fourth full length from this heavy accented.. Read More
John Garcia - The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues (Napalm)

John Garcia – The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues (Napalm)

If this were an album by any other artist or band, you would wonder just what they were taking as you look at the title of it… But it is not. It is an album by the man who is best described as the ‘voice.. Read More
Buzzard Canyon - Hellfire & Whiskey (Salt Of The Earth Records)

Buzzard Canyon – Hellfire & Whiskey (Salt Of The Earth Records)

There is nothing quite like filthy sounding rock n roll. There is just something in it which makes you want to get up and just go ‘Fuck It!’, letting go of everything and letting the energy it carries make you enjoy yourself in whatever way.. Read More
Brant Bjork and the Low Desert Punk Band - Tao Of The Devil (Napalm)

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 release, the legendary Brant Bjork,.. Read More
Lacertilia – We’re Already Inside Your Mind (Red Sun Sounds)

Lacertilia – We’re Already Inside Your Mind (Red Sun Sounds)

If an album title like ‘We’re Already Inside Your Mind’ isn’t enough to get the average stoner metal fan cracking open the extra large Rizla papers – then surely you’re listening to the wrong music altogether. Because this album is as superbly trippy as the.. Read More
Atala – Shaman’s Path of the Serpent (S/R)

Atala – Shaman’s Path of the Serpent (S/R)

Out of the heat and dust of San Bernardino rumbles the trio entitled “Atala”.  Atala is either a 7th Century monk or an Italian make of bicycle. What is more likely in my mind is these lads take their moniker from “Atala, ou Les Amours de.. Read More
Temple of Lies – From Sand (Attic Records)

Temple of Lies – From Sand (Attic Records)

Leicester’s Temple of Lies have hitched up their wagons and headed west – figuratively at least. What this quartet offer is stoner/desert rock with a metal edge.  It may be the Midlands connection but I get a bit of a Wolfsbane vibe amid the Clutch.. Read More
Them Stones – S/T (Division Records)

Them Stones – S/T (Division Records)

Them Stones formed in 2012 and this self-titled cut is the band’s debut effort. Having been influenced by the ‘90’s Seattle grunge scene, these Swiss gentlemen look to make their own mark without being held down to any genre in particular. So let’s take a.. Read More
