Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats – Wasteland  (Rise Above Records)

Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats – Wasteland (Rise Above Records)

I’ve been glad to say I’ve been following Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats (hereafter to be abbreviated to Uncle Acid; no disrespect to The Deadbeats, but it’s quite a long band name) since the early days. I won’t pretend to own one of the original.. Read More
Windhand – Eternal Return (Relapse)

Windhand – Eternal Return (Relapse)

Since the release of 2015’s ‘Grief’s Infernal Flower’, Virginian doom metal outfit Windhand have endured more than their fair share of upheaval; parting ways with one half of their founding guitar duo, Asechiah Bogdan, leaving Garrett Morris to carry the riffs solo, aided by bassist.. Read More
The Wizards – Rise of the Serpent (High Roller)

The Wizards – Rise of the Serpent (High Roller)

This Spanish band have been a great asset to my musical enjoyment, their previous release ‘Full Moon in Scorpio’ and even their debut were filled with occult doom rock and heavy metal influence. On this latest release, The Wizards have grown a lot and have.. Read More
Author & Punisher – Beastland (Relapse)

Author & Punisher – Beastland (Relapse)

The phrase “industrial” when used in the context of music has always been one that has conjured images of cyber goths with plastic dreadlocks stomping along to the likes of Combichrist. Even the grittiness that lies within the heaviest moments of stalwarts such as Skinny.. Read More
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
