Der Blutharsch and the infinite church of the leading Hand – Wish I Weren’t Here (WKN)

Well this has the label tag number 55 on it so that seems to be the number of releases we have reached from Austrian cosmonauts Der B as I shall abbreviate their name to for sanity’s sake. Although I have… Continue Reading →

Bellrope – You Must relax (Exile On Mainstream)

Aaaaaargh! Sometimes you need a little petrol thrown on a fire. Bellrope who rose from the ashes of Black Shape of Nexus (yeah I stole that from the PR blurb –fight me!) are dropping their debut “You Must Relax”. They… Continue Reading →

New Light Choir – Torchlight (Svart Records)

Many things came into my head while I was listening to this album, which is a good thing, but I cannot accept the claim that New Light Choir “are devoid of the trappings of retro worship”. I’d agree that “retro… Continue Reading →

Transmaniacon – The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet (New Heavy Sounds)

Just who is Suzie and why is her world strange? Plenty of questions to answer here. Well apparently she is the creation of author Ian Miller whose work has stretched to book, art, graphic novels and films. She is a… Continue Reading →

Demetra Sine Die – Post Glacial Rebound (Third I Rex)

With the album title in front of me I expected Demetra Sine Die to be one of those gazing bands, all nice harmonies and looking out over a shimmering plateau of ice. Yeah I suppose there’s a little bit of… Continue Reading →

Spaceslug – Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Poland’s Spaceslug are a busy band. Their universe started to come together in 2015 but the big bang happened for them with debut LP “Lemanis” in 2016 and follow up, “Time Travel Dilemma” one year later. Punctuated by an EP… Continue Reading →

Tony Tears – Demons Crawl At Your Side (Minotauro Records)

Since covering the extensive three and a half hour boxed set ‘Music From The Astral Worlds (2000-2014)’ I seem to have adopted Tony Tears for review duties as well as picking up Abysmal Grief, a project that he and fellow… Continue Reading →

White Hills & Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Desire (Van Records)

Wow Der Blut (as I shall continue to call them for sanity’s sake) have only gone and hooked up a band with about as many releases as they have. Both they and White Hills have over 50 to their name…. Continue Reading →

Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

What happens when you stick a guy from Mastodon, a guy from Tool, a film animator/director and a couple of other talented musicians together? Now before you treat this as some poor effort at humour, it’s actually a legitimate question!… Continue Reading →

Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons – The Age of Absurdity (Nuclear Blast)

As an upfront and centre disclaimer, I’m a HUGE fan of Phil Campbell. I know that for a lot of people, the trio of Fast Eddie, Philthy and Lemmy were their definitive Motorhead, but I really rather prefer the final… Continue Reading →

Solar Sons – Retrograde Motion (S/R)

Ladies and gents who may be reading this, let me advise you that if you are a fan of hard rock or metal, there is precious little reason to visit the former industrial powerhouse and now excluded candidate for European… Continue Reading →

The Spacelords – Water Planet (Spacetemple Records)

I think that the editor of this esteemed site must be trying to tell me something. I’d barely had time to unpack anything into the latest incarnation of Spenny Mansions when he insisted on sending over a CD that was… Continue Reading →
