Sacri Monti – Waiting Room for the Magic Hour (Tee Pee)

It’s been four years since their debut, and my expectations are high for this one. The San Diego based quintet’s debut was a psychedelic master class, reminiscent of messiah’s Cream, Hendrix, Uriah Heep and so on. This one, well, they… Continue Reading →

King of the Desert Brant Bjork is back once again, and luckily for me, I get to talk/write about him once more. 2016’s ’Tao Of The Devil’ was a phenomenal release in all aspects; loaded with sweet stoner grooves, filthy… Continue Reading →

The Shadow Lizzards – S/T (Tonzonen Records)

Blues Pills – Devil Man – Nuclear Blast

Nocturnal – ST (Gaphals Records)

With the recent rise in popularity of late 60’s/early 70’s retro doom/occult rock or whatever you want to call it we have Sweden’s Nocturnal throwing down the gauntlet and throwing a few cats among pigeons. To me this gem of… Continue Reading →

Diamond Lil – ST (High Roller)

Diamond Lil eh? Sounds like a right character, perhaps from around the old East End, a lady not to be messed with as she may cut you with a blade just like a diamond. She is a fearsome character a… Continue Reading →

Obzidian – Damned Eternal (Copro Records)

Musically, Obzidian come from a very dark and mysterious place, judging by this work of experimental and progressive old school metal. There are no prisoners taken here on “Damned Eternal”. Deep and heavy, the styles and mixed and there’s an… Continue Reading →
