Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Slowrun – Passage (S/R)

Subtle flavours are what I experienced on Slowrun’s albums “Prologue” and “Resonance”. Now, two years on, the Finnish instrumental band has released this EP in which to weave their ambient magic. The first of the two tracks takes us immediately into a dreamworld, almost akin.. Read More
Spectrale - Triangle (Ladlo Productions)

Spectrale – Triangle (Ladlo Productions)

Firstly here the album title is actually a symbol of a triangle so just get that in your head and think about going through that shape in the Play School Window (showing my age here). Secondly, well this album is one I had to put.. Read More
The Spacelords – Water Planet  (Spacetemple Records)

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 “just my thing.” I guess.. Read More
Collapse Under the Empire – The Fallen Ones (Finaltune Records)

Collapse Under the Empire – The Fallen Ones (Finaltune Records)

We are gently led into an epic soundscape. This is the duo’s sixth album of electronic post rock. The mere title “The Fallen Ones” suggests gloom and melancholy but whilst the title track has a sultry air, the progression is calming and lush. The post.. Read More
The Kahless Clone - Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

The Kahless Clone – Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

For some reason the last couple of November’s Doom albums didn’t seem to hit our radar, shame as I have always quite liked the band ‘The Pale Haunt Departure’ 2005 being a particular favourite. The reason I am mentioning this is that guitarist Vito Marchese.. Read More
Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

If you’ve ever read some of my inane scribblings, you’ll know I’m not at adverse to firing the occasional barb in the direction of the grim, kvlt mob who like to apply corpse paint and scream, and as such it’s a real surprise that I.. Read More
BardSpec – Hydrogen (By Norse)

BardSpec – Hydrogen (By Norse)

The name will be familiar to many. It’s Ivar Bjørnson of Enslaved. Inspired by trance-inducing ambiance, he formed his own project BardSpec and, to quote the publicity, “combines stirring, hallucinatory synth-sounds with mercurial guitar effects and hypnotic rhythms that navigate illusory landscapes”. The landscape is.. Read More
Aluk Todolo – Archives Vol 1 (Temple Of Torturous)

Aluk Todolo – Archives Vol 1 (Temple Of Torturous)

Self-branded ‘occult rock’ French instrumental power trio Aluk Todolo have been garnering more interest of late after releasing various albums EP’s and splits. They have collaborated with Der Blutharsch back in 2011 and are about to head out on tour with Oranssi Pazuzu. They were.. Read More
Arrakis – Electricon (S/R)

Arrakis – Electricon (S/R)

Arrakis, the desert planet, home of Spice that allows interstellar travel, known as Dune, and also a rather good Greek instrumental psychedelic power trio. To take their name from the possibly the most famous planet in Science-Fiction literature is a pretty bold move, setting a.. Read More
My Sleeping Karma - Mela Ananda (Napalm)

My Sleeping Karma – Mela Ananda (Napalm)

Translating from Hindi, Mela Ananda means “A gathering of bliss”. This is a rather fitting album title for the first live recording by Teutonic instrumental giants My Sleeping Karma in their ten year career. With MSK already receiving some pretty in depth coverage on this.. Read More
The Lumberjack Feedback - Blackened Visions (Kaotoxin)

The Lumberjack Feedback – Blackened Visions (Kaotoxin)

French doomsters, The Lumberjack Feedback have had a busy few years with a split release and two EP’s to their credit. “Blackened Visions” represents the first full length release from the band. Beefing things up with two drummers and a twin guitar attack, this all.. Read More
