Dread Sovereign – For Doom The Bells Toll (Van)

Dread Sovereign – For Doom The Bells Toll (Van)

For some reason or other we appear to have missed promo duties on 1st Dread Sovereign album ‘All Hell’s Martyrs’ in 2014. This was somewhat careless considering the band comprise of A.A. Nemtheanga and Dubh Sol from Primordial along with Wizard Of Firetop Mountaineer Bones... Read More
Horisont - About Time (Century Media)

Horisont – About Time (Century Media)

Horisont are celebrating ten years in existence with this their fifth album and I’m very happy to say I’ve been with them all the way. Horisont love what they do and it always comes across in their progressive-tinged retro hard rock. Every Horisont album has.. Read More
Wolvennest – S/T (Van)

Wolvennest – S/T (Van)

Back in early 2016 I covered The Wolvennest Sessions via a collaboration between the Belgian musical chemists and Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand. It was an intriguing and depressive descent that took in doom, drone, psyche rock, experimentation and Krautrock.. Read More
Chester Hawkins – Natural Causes (Intangible Arts)

Chester Hawkins – Natural Causes (Intangible Arts)

This is the strangest thing to turn up in a while here and was kindly sent in on vinyl and described as “a bit of soundtracky electric noises for possible review.” Composer Chester Hawkins is from Washington DC and has been writing and performing for.. Read More
Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Sucht & Ordnung (WKN)

Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Sucht & Ordnung (WKN)

Release number 49 (yes you did read that correctly) from Albin Julius under the (abbreviated for sanity sake) Der Blutharsch moniker. I am a recent inductee into this psychedelic musical cosmos having only joined when numbers 47 & 48 found their way to me; very.. Read More
Slegest – Vidsyn (Dark Essence)

Slegest – Vidsyn (Dark Essence)

I Fortida Sitt Lis starts up and after the storm sample it winds up on a riff that sounds pretty much like Hawkwind playing black metal. Welcome to the world of Slegest; a curious and determinedly individual take on black metal created by Ese when.. Read More
Zaum – Eidolon (I Hate Records)

Zaum – Eidolon (I Hate Records)

If ever there was an open goal for a doom metal band in terms of musical and cultural thematics, this is it. The sound and spirit of the ancient East – long the imagined home of the tripped-out fan of all kinds of heaviness and.. Read More
11 Paranoias - Reliquary For A Dream World (Ritual Productions)

11 Paranoias – Reliquary For A Dream World (Ritual Productions)

Psychedelic gloom and doom outfit 11 Paranoias blew me away last time I covered them when they unleashed the rather phenomenal and reality distorting ‘Stealing Fire From Heaven’ back in the tail-end of 2014 and having experienced them live since that release, they truly have.. Read More
Seremonia  – Pahuuden Äänet (Svart)

Seremonia – Pahuuden Äänet (Svart)

I’ll be entirely honest here as despite this being their fourth album, ‘Pahuuden Äänet’ is the first time I have knowingly encountered the music of Finnish psychedelic five piece Seremonia. It may well have been playing at the house of a friend without my knowing.. Read More
Katla - Embryo (Svart)

Katla – Embryo (Svart)

If you’ve ever heard Hawkwind’s “Silver Machine”, you’d recognise the start of this one. “Psychedelic” is the word that’s normally applied to this sound. The style then deviates away from straight rock to a different kind of crusty and woozy 70s sound, complete with a.. Read More
Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard - Y Proffwyd Dwyll (New Heavy Sounds)

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard – Y Proffwyd Dwyll (New Heavy Sounds)

Welsh four piece outfit, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard have wasted no time in following up their debut album with another slab of doom encrusted metal. One thing that is obvious from the outset is a maturity to their sound and song writing approach. This, combined.. Read More
Eerie – S/T (Tee Pee Records)

Eerie – S/T (Tee Pee Records)

Don’t be tricked by the cover. Or maybe I’d better say don’t be put off by the cover. Despite appearances, Eerie is no Toxic Avenger worshipping, zombie-obsessed, disposable thrash metal band. Maybe it works with the music on some level but whatever that might be.. Read More
