-(16)- Dream Squasher (Relapse Records)

Despite having a name that’s a copy editor’s worst nightmare (no, these reviews are not copy edited and all grammatical errors, trite phrases, oft repeated tropes and typos are purely down to the writer here), 16 have been around since… Continue Reading →

The Ditch and the Delta – S/T (Prosthetic Records)

With a name like The Ditch and the Delta my expectation was to hear the blues; born from Mississippi, paying homage to the great blues artists while swigging from a bottle of moonshine.  That expectation was rather misguided, as the… Continue Reading →

Golden Core – Fimbultýr (Fysisk Format)

It’s fair to say the doom metal scene is a tad cramped, and it will take something special to shine brightly in the hazy fog that surrounds the genre. Could this second full length from Oslo garage stoner rockers, Golden… Continue Reading →

Goblinsmoker – A Throne In Haze, A World Ablaze (Sludgelord Records)

Goblinsmoker started as a one man band born in a Durham bedroom in 2016.  The idea that Adam Kennedy had was to combine the bleakness of Black metal and the colossal riffs and fuzz of Doom.  He had a story that he… Continue Reading →

Throatsnapper – About the Dead (Consouling Sounds)

With a name like Throatsnapper you’d be well within your rights to expect either a volatile hard core punk band spitting out vitriolic lyrics, or at the very least an intimidating blackened death metal band that take devilish glee inflicting… Continue Reading →

Opium Lord – Vore (Sludgelord Records)

There’s something decidedly foul going on with this, the second full length from Birmingham misery merchants, Opium Lord.  Vore is thoroughly dark, unpleasant and violent; it’s a glimpse into the minds of some twisted individuals.  The album contains elements of… Continue Reading →

Kludde – In de Kwelm (Consouling Sounds)

It’s always worth keeping a close eye on the furtive black metal scenes of countries such as Belgium and Holland; there is no escaping the fact they put much of what is going on in the UK underground to shame…. Continue Reading →

Eremit – Carrier of Weight (Transcending Obscurity)

Transcending Obscurity records is the home for German Sludge/Doom duo Eremit’s debut, Carrier of Weight. Damn is there some weight held within. 68 mins of metal spread haphazardly over just three tracks. This is not doom for the light hearted or… Continue Reading →

Deadbird – III: The Forest Within the Tree (20 Buck Spin)

All that I have read, seen and heard recently about the American South has been synonymous with weird, backward ideas (to put it politely). It looks like the majority of the people there is trying very hard to undo some… Continue Reading →

Interview – Thou

2018 is the summer of Thou; having released their last full length ‘Heathen’ back in 2014, their musical output over the last four years has been sporadic with only the occasional compilation or split to tide listeners over. The Baton… Continue Reading →

VOR – Depravador (Third I Rex)

Vor? What is it good for? Quite a lot actually! A lot of the time when a release purporting to be “sludge” hits my inbox or doormat I am dismayed. Usually folks are so busy with the big riffs and… Continue Reading →

Hands of Thieves – Feasting on Dark Intentions (Hellthrasher Productions)

Four tracks, ranging from the five and a half minute mark, all the way to over twelve minutes. A logo that’s incredibly illegible, white on black with a noose motif hanging on it. Released on Hellthrasher Productions. Can you imagine… Continue Reading →
