The Atomic Bitchwax – Force Field (Tee Pee)

The Atomic Bitchwax – Force Field (Tee Pee)

“You’re dumb as fuck. You fucking suck and now I hope you fuckin’ dieeeeeee!” Not my words but those of Chris Kosnick of The Atomic Bitchwax on the beast of a track “Shocker”. I myself share this sentiment and put it out to anyone that.. Read More
Hooded Priest – The Hour Be None (I Hate Records)

Hooded Priest – The Hour Be None (I Hate Records)

  After my first listen to Hooded Priest’s latest offering, ‘The Hour Be None’, I would have happily sworn that I must be in possession of their previous offerings, maybe at least a couple of albums or EPs; such was the immediate familiarity of the.. Read More
Lento – Fourth (Consouling Sounds)

Lento – Fourth (Consouling Sounds)

Thunderously industrial sounds resonate. An alarm is going. I think Lento are telling us that they’re very heavy. This band from Rome promises us a mesmerising, apocalyptic and mystical journey with their fourth album. There is no time for breath to be taken. Wave upon.. Read More
The Body & Full of Hell – Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light (Thrill Jockey)

The Body & Full of Hell – Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light (Thrill Jockey)

A year ago The Body and Full of Hell released the devastatingly heavy and unsettling ‘One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache’ and it was clear from the beginning that this was a collaboration that felt it had plenty more to say, with both.. Read More
Ixion – Return (Finisterian Dead End)

Ixion – Return (Finisterian Dead End)

There have always been two elements to Ixion’s sound – the funeral doom slog and the uplifting keyboard vibes to balance it all out. It worked nicely on Into the Void, which was more what most would consider to be an outright doom album even.. Read More
Dead Woman’s Ditch – Seo Mere Saetan (Third I Rex)

Dead Woman’s Ditch – Seo Mere Saetan (Third I Rex)

When I first saw the moniker of this band my heart sank. “Another example of violent misogyny in the world of extreme music “ Ironic as I was wearing a Lunatic Hooker tee at the time. I could not be more wrong and this 6.. Read More
(Dolch) – III - Songs of Happiness, Words of Praise (Ván)

(Dolch) – III – Songs of Happiness, Words of Praise (Ván)

Props must be given to German group (Dolch) for managing to keep up an air of mystery in an Internet age. I still haven’t a clue of the name of the artists although they have come out the woodwork a little to perform live, most.. Read More
Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Purple Hill Witch – Celestial Cemetery (Church Within)

Another review, and yet another band I’d never heard of, in this case Purple Hill Witch. Despite hailing from the wintery realms of Norway, they are not a new addition to that region’s pantheon of corpse paint wearing child frighteners, rather an act that are.. Read More
Psychedelic Witchcraft - Sound Of the Wind (Listenable)

Psychedelic Witchcraft – Sound Of the Wind (Listenable)

Psychedelic Witchcraft certainly doesn’t relax much in terms of activity. Back in the early stages of this year, the compilation/re-recording collection “Magick Rites and Spells” which featured moments of their 2015 demo along with some covers was initially thought to be a new release (by..

Opium Warlords – Droner (Svart)

Opium Warlords – Droner (Svart)

Righteo, cards on the table, this is the most difficult albums I’ve ever had to review. Previously, that title belonged to albums that were either by bands I really liked but who had managed to give birth to a musical turkey, or cases where I.. 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..
