Noisepicker – Peace Off (Exile On Mainstream)

When I was a youngster, if I wasn’t immersed in a world of Hendrix, Black Sabbath or Iron Maiden, I was busily exploring the blues. The darkness of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters; those bourbon… Continue Reading →

Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Church of the Leading Hand- What makes you Pray (WBR)

Transmission number 53 apparently from planet Der Blutharsch and these are becoming a bit of a regular thing since they discovered us. Not a problem, I am happy to waffle on about this Austrian lot’s odd musical cosmos. Their promo… Continue Reading →

Banquet – Jupiter Rose (Heavy Psych Sounds)

If your quest is for metal, and nothing but the most extreme, sorry, but here’s the time you should click away to the next review on Ave Noctum. Still reading? Good, because that means you know that the site prides… Continue Reading →

Hexvessel – When We Are Death (Century Media)

I have been a little starved of hearing the distinct dulcet tones of ex-patriot singer Matthew McNerney aka Kvohst of late. His Beastmilk project rebranded as Grave Pleasures have gained more mainstream success and latest album Dreamcrash didn’t see its… Continue Reading →

Psychic TV – London Garage 23/11/15

It’s been a long time since I last caught Psychic TV, in fact looking it up it was 1 May 1999 at The Royal Festival Hall. Veteran of many of their shows with a stack of live albums to boot… Continue Reading →

Cellar Dogs – Jackhammer (S/R)

Greece of all places houses a band that cites influences such as The Atomic Bitchwax, Fu Manchu, Dozer, so that immediately got my attention when this came up to review. After listening to the release for a fair few times,… Continue Reading →

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats – The Night Creeper (Rise Above)

Since releasing their second album ‘Blood Lust’ back in 2011 it would appear that psych rockers, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, can do no wrong. The last four years has seen the band embark upon an upwards trajectory; hand selected… Continue Reading →

Profound Sleep – Keep It Alive (S/R)

The music industry is not what it once was, with major labels seemingly not willing to invest in new acts unless they are the vapid nonsense that currently passes for R’n’B, the product of some reality show, or a one… Continue Reading →

Godflesh, Ramleh & Khost – London Garage 10/12/14

As the first of three duos took the stage tonight we were well aware that there was not going to be a whole lot going on to watch in front of us and it was all about the music more… Continue Reading →

Possessed, Grave Miasma & Unfathomable Ruination – London Garage 28/7/14

If you had not encountered anything in the way of death metal since the headliners had released their two classic albums you would have wondered just what had happened in the last 3 decades for it to evolve into what… Continue Reading →

Goat Monsoon – Blue (S/R)

This quartet from Colchester, whose members offer “throat locusts, tang, dirt and pedals”, are purveyors of Garage Fuzz Rock. That’s what they tell us. As I set about listening to this 4 track live EP, what I heard reminded more… Continue Reading →

Mayhem, Merrimack and Stahlsarg – London Garage 21/5/14

A load of rancid food stalls and hippy head shops got slightly singed a couple of days before this date was due to hit town and the gig was moved from Camden to the Garage down the road. A lot… Continue Reading →
