Motorowl - Atlas (Century Media)

Motorowl – Atlas (Century Media)

East German psychedelic-doom five piece Motorowl are back once again with the follow up to their 2016 debut ‘Om Generator’. Much like their previous album, “Atlas” continues the use of psychedelic rock, 70’s style rock, space rock and elements of doom and stoner, and much.. Read More

Essenz – Manes Impetus (Amor Fati Productions)

Heavy and industrial …. it doesn’t have to be German but it is. Dirty rumblings and heinous growls get us under way on “Manes Impetus”, Essenz’s third album. Essenz are known for “bursts of transformation” in their music. What this means that in amongst the.. Read More
Saint Karloff – All Heed The Black God (Twin Earth Records)

Saint Karloff – All Heed The Black God (Twin Earth Records)

Okay, let’s get this out of the way quickly. Yes, the band is called Saint Karloff. Yes, the logo on the band page is from the movie Black Sabbath. Yes, we all know which metal titans that film inspired. And finally, yes, there is a.. Read More
Lurk – Fringe (Transcending Obscurity)

Lurk – Fringe (Transcending Obscurity)

To be considered genre-defying is probably the greatest accolade for any artist, I have talked about uniqueness in my reviews before and how although it may seem obvious to say it’s always the solitary bands that stick with us. In an age where you can.. Read More
Spaceslug - Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Spaceslug – Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Poland’s Spaceslug are a busy band. Their universe started to come together in 2015 but the big bang happened for them with debut LP “Lemanis” in 2016 and follow up, “Time Travel Dilemma” one year later. Punctuated by an EP release, “Eye The Tide” represents.. Read More
Blacklab - Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0 (New Heavy Sounds)

Blacklab – Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0 (New Heavy Sounds)

I was pleased to see this crop up in the review lists as a friend had highlighted the name Blacklab a while back and for once it has lodged in my tiny brain. Blacklab are a guitar/vocals and drum duo from Osaka and the 2.0.. Read More

Axegrinder – Satori (Rise Above)

And going straight into the top ten of bands taking a break between albums we have Axegrinder with 29 years between this and debut ‘The Rise Of The Serpent Men’ which originally came out way back in 1989. I have to admit I missed it.. Read More
Lucifer- Lucifer II (Century Media)

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 help create their classically proto-doom.. Read More
Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters – Come & Chutney (Riff Rock Records)

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters – Come & Chutney (Riff Rock Records)

In the world of the badger faced extreme metallers, there seems to be a competition to have the most indecipherable logo, doubtless to match their equally indecipherable hell screamed lyrics. Enter the world of the Iommi worshipping Doom community, and there is a similar competition.. Read More
Khemmis – Desolation (Nuclear Blast)

Khemmis – Desolation (Nuclear Blast)

Allow me to start this review with a couple of statements that may cause some surprise.  Firstly, I’ve been sat on this recording for a couple of weeks before being able to give it a decent spin as amazingly enough this reviewing lark doesn’t actually.. Read More
The Evil - Evil (Osmose)

This is the third release from traditional doom band King Heavy featuring Luce Vee, singer of Hooded Priest and ex-Procession bassist Daniel Saa, based out of Chile. There’s a mix of Trouble and Reverend Bizarre as the PR material suggests, although apart from the odd.. Read More
