Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

It was a dark time many months ago when Graveyard called it quits. Mr. Finger-on-the-pulse as I am, I actually didn’t find out about their decision to split until 3 months after the announcement, by which time the band had re-grouped minus the drummer and.. Read More
Old Mother Hell – Old Mother Hell (Cruz Del Sur)

Old Mother Hell – Old Mother Hell (Cruz Del Sur)

Heavy metal is something I enjoy. The simple and straight to the point, no nonsense attack of riffs which demand headbanging, the vocals which have that power and hypnotic effect which makes you want to raise your fist in the air, the sheer loudness and.. Read More
Black Wizard - Livin’ Oblivion (Listenable)

Black Wizard – Livin’ Oblivion (Listenable)

Canada’s Black Wizard have continued to carve out a reputation on the local heavy metal scene since their first release back in 2010. Ahead of a UK tour with Anciients, their fourth LP, “Livin’ Oblivion” will keep their riff arsenal well stocked. The twin guitar.. Read More
Sheidim - Infamata (I, Voidhanger)

Sheidim – Infamata (I, Voidhanger)

Discordant sombreness fills the air. So starts this EP from Spanish black metal band Sheidim. From this comes the ferocious fire of “A Dying Sun”, with a distinct thrash element fuelling the flames. An old school guitar line, more sinister instrumentals and voices, and a.. Read More
The Necromancers - Servants Of The Salem Girl (Ripple Music)

The Necromancers – Servants Of The Salem Girl (Ripple Music)

The Necromancers will be a new name to many, but Ripple Music (home to plenty of top Doom, Stoner and Psych bands) are relishing the task of releasing this French outfits impressive debut. Another clue to their style is that they have recently been sharing.. Read More
Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Those who can make any money, let alone a living out of reviewing are few and far between. The majority of writers are folks like your humble scribe who happen to be fans and want to spread the word of what is good, and maybe.. Read More
Foscor – Les Irreals Visions (Season of Mist)

Foscor – Les Irreals Visions (Season of Mist)

Foscor have been around as a band since 1997 but it was their last album “Those Horrors Wither” (2014) which captured my attention and made my top 10 for that year thanks to its dark and shadowy intrigue. I was immediately reminded of the atmospheric.. Read More
Magnet – Feel Your Fire (Soulseller Records)

Magnet – Feel Your Fire (Soulseller Records)

It’s 2017, I’m rapidly approaching five decades on this planet, and I’m glad to say that many new bands are willing to set sail across the seas of Rock aboard the good ship retro, and Magnet, helmed by Psychedelic Witchcraft’s Riccardo Giuffrè who has swapped.. Read More
Asteroid – III (Fuzzorama)

Asteroid – III (Fuzzorama)

The “reactivation” of Swedish trio Asteroid, following a two year hiatus, has quickly led to the release of a seven-track third album rather unsurprisingly called III. Mostly we are dealing with the standard fayre of chunky swathes of fat fuzz over a groovy shuffling beat.. Read More
Svvamp - S/T (RidingEasy Records)

Svvamp – S/T (RidingEasy Records)

Sweden has been a notable player in dishing up quality retro rock bands. Graveyard and Horisont leap to mind as two, who over recent years have kept the vibe of the classic rock era alive in this part of the world. Svvamp are a new.. Read More
Monolith – Mountain (Final Gate Records)

Monolith – Mountain (Final Gate Records)

The whole retro thing is quite big at the moment. Bands like Kadavar, Graveyard and Horisont are names we see quite often because they do it well. Obviously, the key to success is not pure imitation, but taking those late 60’s / early 70’s influences.. Read More
Redwolves – Walking Roads (S/R)

Redwolves – Walking Roads (S/R)

Redwolves hail from Copenhagen, Denmark. Despite some early career line-up changes and a name change from Awesome Mr Powerwolf, they are now getting ready for the release of a new EP, “Walking Roads”.  This has the feel of a band that has been around for.. Read More
