Haunted – Dayburner (Twin Earth Records)

Haunted – Dayburner (Twin Earth Records)

Firstly, let me warn you that those of you who were looking forward to or expecting some Sleep style guerilla release of Swedish Extreme metal, like me, you’d be wrong. This is Haunted, Italian purveyors of some classic occult tinged doom, and follow up to.. Read More

Witchskull - Coven’s Will (Rise Above)

Witchskull – Coven’s Will (Rise Above)

Australia’s Witchskull are still relative newcomers to the doom scene. Formed in 2014 and with one release to their name, 2016’s “The Vast Electric Dark”, the Canberra based outfit have scrounged the depths for the kind of riffs that make up sophomore release “Coven’s Will”... Read More
Bodies On Everest - A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

Bodies On Everest – A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

North-west UK based trio Bodies On Everest are an intriguing group. With a name related to the highest graveyard in the world, it will come as no surprise that both the musical content and delivery lies on the doomier side of the spectrum. With approaches.. Read More
Orange Goblin – The Wolf Bites Back (Candlelight Records)

Orange Goblin – The Wolf Bites Back (Candlelight Records)

It’s 2018 and in short order the majority of the mainstream folks I work with have been variously excited by the FA cup final, a royal wedding, the forthcoming Steps and Aqua show in Dundee (I shit you not folks!), and now the forthcoming world.. Read More
Mist – Free Me of the Sun (Soulseller)

Mist – Free Me of the Sun (Soulseller)

Ljubljana in Slovenia is not a city that springs to mind when it comes to Doom. In fact the only reason I have heard of this capital is because Laibach erupted from there decades ago. Unlike their fellow country folk Mist do not offer up.. Read More
Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Given the kind of music that my own band plays, I’m surprised that I’ve never checked out Limb before. It seems like I’ve been missing out on something very special, certainly if this third L.P. is anything to go by. Prog infused and swagger-fueled doomy.. Read More
Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Something a bit different this time. Besvarjelsen (“conjuring”, in Swedish, language fans) are a Swedish doom band, featuring luscious female vocals, and a vibe so warm and relaxed it’s like sipping a quality whiskey by an open fire during the deepest of winters. I’m a.. Read More
Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

It was a dark time many months ago when Graveyard called it quits. Mr. Finger-on-the-pulse as I am, I actually didn’t find out about their decision to split until 3 months after the announcement, by which time the band had re-grouped minus the drummer and.. Read More
Witchsorrow - Hexenhammer (Candlelight)

Witchsorrow – Hexenhammer (Candlelight)

Four albums into their career, British underground doom lords Witchsorrow are showing no signs of letting up on what seems like a mission to crush our souls into a fine powder with their own brand of heavy. Following on from 2015’s fine “No Light, Only.. Read More
Witch Mountain – Witch Mountain (Svart)

Witch Mountain – Witch Mountain (Svart)

It is a simple fact that regardless of who may be the founder, writer, or core of an act, many bands become almost synonymous with their vocalist. They’re the ones who are up front, fronting the band in fact, and if not tied to an.. Read More
