Northern Crown – S/T (S/R)

Northern Crown – S/T (S/R)

Here’s a few statistics for you. During their 30 plus year history, the longest serving, in one go at least, vocalist for Candlemass has been Mats Leven, serving from 2012-2018 on numerous tours and festival slots However, that same period has seen very little new.. Read More
High On Fire -  Electric Messiah (eOne)

High On Fire – Electric Messiah (eOne)

To release one monster of an album in 2018 is no mean feat.  To do so with the wait of expectation from a rabid fanbase weighing like a concrete albatross is truly magnificent. For Matt Pike to follow up Sleeps’ “The Sciences” with a new High.. Read More
Cultes Des Ghoules – Sinister (Hell’s Headbangers)

Cultes Des Ghoules – Sinister (Hell’s Headbangers)

Sinister by name and sinister by nature, watch out the ghoules are back in town. If you have a certain song going round in your head after reading that line, wipe it out now. This lot are in no way throwing down a normal metal.. Read More
Earth Ship - Resonant Sun (Pelagic)

Earth Ship – Resonant Sun (Pelagic)

For the last few weeks, I’ve been mostly listening to music wallowing in misery, sickness and despair. Predominantly post metal and some experimental stuff. It agreed with me, but like someone eating the same meal every day for days on end, I got tired of.. Read More
Hangman's Chair -  Banlieue Triste (Spinefarm)

Hangman’s Chair – Banlieue Triste (Spinefarm)

I first came across this pretty unclassifiable French band with their 2015 album ‘This Is Not Supposed To Be Positive’. As this titles translates to something like ‘Sad Suburb’ you can tell their mood or preoccupations haven’t improved much over three years. After a quiet,.. Read More
Nagaarum – Apples (Aesthetic Death)

Nagaarum – Apples (Aesthetic Death)

The whole concept of this is unusual. This album is a tribute to three scientists – Halley, Hooke and Newton, hence the “Apples” presumably and their relevance of the discovery of gravity. It is explained further that these scientists operated in a framework of philosophical.. Read More
Interview - Yob

Interview – Yob

Instantly recognisable as one of the seminal bands in modern doom metal, Yob are an unrelenting powerhouse of crushing riffs and meditative atmospheres. However, the trio was almost brought to its knees in January 2017, when inimitable frontman Mike Scheidt was hospitalised following a severe.. Read More
P.H.O.B.O.S -  Phlogiston Catharsis (Transcending Obscurity)

P.H.O.B.O.S – Phlogiston Catharsis (Transcending Obscurity)

My only previous encounter with French industrial death/doom outfit P.H.O.B.O.S was their Triunity split with Blut Aus Nord a few years back, which should at least give you an idea about the kind of headfuck you’re going to encounter here. Well maybe. ‘Biomorphorror’ gives you.. Read More
Butcher In The Fog - A Screaming Reflection (Sleight Of Hand Music)

Butcher In The Fog – A Screaming Reflection (Sleight Of Hand Music)

London trio Butcher In The Fog are a many headed beast. Taking elements of hardcore punk and throwing in helpings of head banging thrash with a touch of old fashioned doom metal, there’s something in there for everyone. I caught them live in early 2017.. Read More
Spacetrucker - Smooth Orbit - 2nd Pass (S/R)

Spacetrucker – Smooth Orbit – 2nd Pass (S/R)

Go on, just from the name guess what kind of music Spacetrucker play? Actually yes, but this St Louis trio have a little more under their cosmic hood than meets the eye. This is I believe their second self released album since 2016 so I.. Read More
Arcticcircle- Where Ice Meets Ocean (S/R)

Arcticcircle- Where Ice Meets Ocean (S/R)

As I have no doubt ranted about in the past I simply cannot abide imaginative genres. I understand that bands must develop, change style, create new sounds and so forth but claiming a sound as a new genre via one album or release is simply.. Read More
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
