Row Of Ashes - Let The Long Night Fade (Third I Rex)

Row Of Ashes – Let The Long Night Fade (Third I Rex)

“…the sonic equivalent of helplessly watching a storm develop, destroy everything around you, and finally, assessing the devastation once it has passed.” So reads the press blurb that accompanies ‘Let The Long Night Fade’, the debut album from London band Row Of Ashes. It’s a.. Read More
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
Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

Necro Deathmort – Overland (Profound Lore)

‘Overland’ is the eighth full-length release from electronic duo Necro Deathmort, and their first on Profound Lore. The pairing have kept themselves busy over the last decade; as well as creating their own dynamic layers of sound, they have produced remixes for Steven Wilson (Porcupine.. Read More
Monarch - Never Forever (Profound Lore)

Monarch – Never Forever (Profound Lore)

Monarch sets new lows when it comes to depressive, harrowing doom. Often only sparsely populated with what you might dismissively call music and more often bordering on ambient ‘noise’, this is a band that is intense, emotionally testing but clearly rewarding for those willing to.. Read More
Boris – Dear (Sargent House)

Boris – Dear (Sargent House)

With a discography that spans 87 releases across 25 years, Japan’s Boris are currently one of the most prolific hard working bands within noise rock, reaching an international audience and standing alongside underground heavyweights such as Sunn O))) and Earth. As they celebrate their milestone.. Read More
Gravetemple – Impassable Fears (Svart)

Gravetemple – Impassable Fears (Svart)

Comprised of three members of Sunn O))) (Attila Csihar, Stephen O’Malley and Oren Ambarchi), you’d be forgiven for thinking that Gravetemple are just a vanity project, however, while their sound may borrow elements from the aforementioned, this particular band are a different beast entirely. ‘Impassable..

Harvestman – Music for Megaliths (Neurot)

Harvestman – Music for Megaliths (Neurot)

Yet another of Steven Von Till’s side projects, Harvestman releases its fourth full length in the form of ‘Music for Megaliths’. Harvestman acts as a midway point between the crushing heaviness of Neurosis and the gentle sombreness of Von Till’s self-named music. While, for the.. Read More
Twinesuns – The Empire Never Ended (Pelagic)

Twinesuns – The Empire Never Ended (Pelagic)

Anyone who’s ever spent several hours in the belly of a cross-channel ferry buried in some cramped sleeping quarters just a little too close to the giant ship’s engine should know what ‘drone’ music sounds like. Indeed, to the uninitiated it can seem like a.. Read More
Wolvennest – S/T (Van)

Wolvennest – S/T (Van)

Back in early 2016 I covered The Wolvennest Sessions via a collaboration between the Belgian musical chemists and Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand. It was an intriguing and depressive descent that took in doom, drone, psyche rock, experimentation and Krautrock.. Read More
Queen Elephantine - Kala (Transcending Obscurity)

Queen Elephantine – Kala (Transcending Obscurity)

With a production value as rough as a hangover, Queen Elephantine cast a little one-take stardust over their music. It’s lo-fi and dissolute. Hearing them recorded can’t be far away from the aural experience of seeing them live. Feedback and fuzz are their friends. Farting.. Read More
Nadja - The Stone Is Not Hit By The Sun, Nor Carved With A Knife (Gizeh Records)

Nadja – The Stone Is Not Hit By The Sun, Nor Carved With A Knife (Gizeh Records)

Coming just 5 months after their last album release, Sv, one does wonder quite how Nadja achieve such a level of productivity. I mean, what the hell? Do they live in a recording studio? Do they just live jam this stuff? Yes, it’s basically a 3-track drone-cum-noise album, but it still needs.. Read More
