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)

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
ówt krì – Pilgrimage (Erototox Decodings)

ówt krì – Pilgrimage (Erototox Decodings)

I have two confessions to make before I outline my thoughts on this latest work of avant-garde dark ambient soundscapes from ówt krì. The first is that I know its creator Kenneth, who as well as being a seriously imaginative, talent musician and master of.. Read More
Ggu:ll – Dwaling (Ván Records)

Ggu:ll – Dwaling (Ván Records)

Ambient doom brings with it a fuzzy feeling, occasioned by the misty atmosphere which in the old days would have meant interference on your television or transistor radio. Ggu:ll from Tilburg in the Netherlands join the less than happy campers devoted to this genre with.. Read More
Nadja - Sv (Essence Music)

Nadja – Sv (Essence Music)

Drone, at its most monotone, can drive some wild. It is a beast that dwells beyond the reach of most, existing in a parallel universe to the dark fury of the majority of heavy metal acts; light years from the sugary sweet licks of rock.. Read More
Messa – Belfry (Aural Music)

Messa – Belfry (Aural Music)

Who would not want “dark ambient drones with vintage heavy occult doom and mesmerizing female vocals that will drive you through a scarlet velvet trip”? That’s what’s offer from this Italian band whose influences range from Pentagram to Bathory. Messa get down to business with.. Read More
Dead Procession – Rituais e Mantras do Medo (Labyrinth)

Dead Procession – Rituais e Mantras do Medo (Labyrinth)

Do not adjust your set. This is Noise tuning straight into your slaughterhouse with some darkly gothic drone that sounds like a depressed Danzig in one of his bleakest Samhain moments. Ritualistic (as the title might suggest), sparsely populated and with a level of production that.. Read More
