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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Graveyard – Innocence and Decadence (Nuclear Blast)

Graveyard have their own distinctive sound. If you search for ‘sound like Graveyard’ on internet radio sites or suchlike you get plenty of bands, but none of them really capture that retro Blues Rock style quite like Graveyard. It’s been… Continue Reading →

Nocturnalia – Above Below Within (Gaphals)

The scene is set a with sombre, classically flavoured piano intro, just over 2 minutes long, full of emotion and drama. Anything could be coming next, Black Metal? Pagan Metal? Post Rock? Symphonic Metal? Doom? Almost the last thing I… Continue Reading →

The Vintage Caravan – Voyage (Nuclear Blast)

There is only one depressing thing about this 3 piece Icelandic band’s second release. The band appear so young that it looks like if you added their ages together they would still be younger than me – and I’m 20… Continue Reading →

Inteview – Becky Cloonan

It’s a funny thing about comics, graphic novels, whatever you want to call them, but even if you don’t read them I’ll bet at least one of your friends does. Forever off mainstream until Hollywood (or HBO) comes calling once… Continue Reading →

Spirits Of The Dead – Rumours Of A Presence (The End)

A quick glance around reveals just how far this modern obsession for all-things retrospective has come. From the re-emergence of the flared trouser or a penchant for all things eyeball-meltingly fluorescent to our longing for the foods we grew up… Continue Reading →
