Fell Ruin – To The Concrete Drifts (I Voidhanger)

This is apparently the second release from US band Fell Ruin, but the first full length and the first I’ve heard of them. What’s within? Well ‘Respire’ is the acoustic guitar intro which takes route A and simply stops before… Continue Reading →

Gnaw Their Tongues – Hymns For the Broken, Swollen and Silent (ConSouling Sounds)

Zothique – Faith, Hope And Charity (S/R)

I really enjoyed the last self-titled and second album from Japanese nutters Zothique. It kind of came out of nowhere as has the follow up, unexpectedly arriving in the post all the way from the Far East. Zothique do have… Continue Reading →

Hooded Menace, Dragged Into Sunlight, Resurgency, Wounded Kings, Decrepid & Uncoffined – London Dome 8/11/14
