Nox Formulae – Drakon Darshan Satan (Dark Descent)

And so the sound of song birds bounced around the forests, the scent of verdant, leaf-strewn soils drifting high into the pristine woodland canopy just as…. The clawed hand of Satan ripped through the fabric of reality and a single,… Continue Reading →

Dexter Ward – III (No Remorse Records)

So yes, it would be a little less formulaic if a band named their fourth or second album “III”, just to mess with people, but in the cynical world we live in the joke would no doubt backfire on the… Continue Reading →

On Thorns I Lay – Threnos (Lifeforce Records)

This is the 9th album by this 25 year old Greek band. Granted this may be the first album of theirs that I’m actually listening to, but I was aware of their existence owing to their contemporaries which I follow… Continue Reading →

Arrakis – Technontology Vol.1 (S/R)

Greek instrumentalists Arrakis formed back in 2012 and are firm believers in tripping through the endless musical universe via the medium of music. Regularly posting demos and jams online for all to hear, this psychedelic orientated stoner-doom band consists of… Continue Reading →

Serpent Noir – Death Clan OD (World Terror Committee)

An atmospheric guitar piece opens ‘Death Clan OD’ with ‘The Black Knighthood Of OD’ before Serpent Noir launch a full-on attack on the senses. ‘Cutting The Umbilical Cord Of Hel’ is a brutal affair and leads with battering fretwork and… Continue Reading →

Acid Mammoth – Under Acid Hoof (Heavy Psych)

I’m forever trying to expand my music tastes. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not. I might go on a week long binge of Avant-Garde Opera only to find one that really sticks (Check out Le Grand Macabre by György Ligeti). Alas sometimes… Continue Reading →

Kawir – Adrasteia (Iron Bonehead)

With roots back to 1993 Greek veterans Kawir have had a studious history that is as historical as the themes and traditions they musically embrace. Leading them through thick and thin Therthonax has had almost 30 players both on album… Continue Reading →

Haxandraok – KI SI KIL UD DA KAR RA (Van)

Sometimes I watch bands live or hear a song or record and just think ‘what is the point in this?’ Truthfully, I find a disdain for anything that isn’t trying to at least tread some new ground, even if that… Continue Reading →

Nightstalker – Great Hallucinations (Heavy Psych Records)

Despite being a band since 1989, I must confess that this is my first time with veteran Greek outfit Nightstalker. On the basis that I liked the name of the album, and the cover art was pretty cool, I thought… Continue Reading →

Planet of Zeus – Faith In Physics (Heavy Psyche Sounds)

Ladies and gents, it’s time for me to be utterly honest and admit my bias; as well as being more than a little impressed by the growing line up of talent being put out through Heavy Psyche Sounds, I bloody… Continue Reading →

MMMD – Egoismo (Antifrost)

MMMΔ, aka MMMD aka Mohammad, now we have that out the way we can begin. Are you sitting comfortably? Well you won’t be for long and going to the toilet and ridding thyself of any excess waste is advisable before… Continue Reading →
