Crippled Black Phoenix - Great Escape (Season Of Mist)

Crippled Black Phoenix – Great Escape (Season Of Mist)

If you are looking for a review that will finally tell you what kind of music CBP exactly make, or if you are hoping to learn in what degree and how precisely they resemble Pink Floyd, then I will have to disappoint you, because I.. Read More
Ravens Creed - Get Killed or Die Trying (Xtreem Music)

Ravens Creed – Get Killed or Die Trying (Xtreem Music)

Well, I had to do a bit of a double take on the title of this one, as it reminded me almost immediately of The Rotted’s “Get Dead or Die Trying” from way back in 2008, but as you can tell a subtle difference in.. Read More
Formalist – No One Will Shine Anymore (Third I Rex)

Formalist – No One Will Shine Anymore (Third I Rex)

That’s one attention catching album cover and although I recognised the photo I wasn’t entirely sure about the story behind it and had to go searching. At first I was convinced it was some sort of satanic crime being represented and as Formalist are from.. Read More
Iron Monkey, Sigiriya and Iron Duke – London Underworld 14/4/18

Iron Monkey, Sigiriya and Iron Duke – London Underworld 14/4/18

The return of Iron Monkey to recorded format was something that was never particularly expected after the tragic early death of original howler Johnny Morrow in 2002. Many detractors were not at all happy about any form of reformation without him but like it or.. Read More
Thuum – Through Smoke, Comes Fire (S/R)

Thuum – Through Smoke, Comes Fire (S/R)

This “southern doom crew” are straight outta Dorset and have no doubt shattered the senses of tranquil holiday goers and retirees from Bournemouth when they crank up their amps. It’s not only the blue rinse wrinkle brigade whose attention they have caught either, getting the.. Read More

Albums Of The Year 2017

PETE WOODS (EDITOR): TOP 20 As others will re-iterate it’s been a crazy year for good music releases and anyone who tells you otherwise is quite frankly a fool. The biggest problem has been keeping up with it all and admittedly we are probably all.. Read More
Iron Monkey - 9-13 (Relapse Records)

Iron Monkey – 9-13 (Relapse Records)

So, this is one of those releases. You know the kind I mean. When you’ve been a big fan of a band, and then, from out of nowhere, you realise that the band are coming back after a long time. What is the feeling? Is.. Read More
Barrabus – S/T (Undergroove)

Barrabus – S/T (Undergroove)

Well it’s been a while since last confronting the dulcet tones of Paul Catten. In fact if memory serves it was Damnation Festival 2011 when he last screamed at me via A Man Called Catten with songs from favourite beat combo Medulla Nocte. Now they.. Read More
Ketch - The Anthems Of Dread (Aesthetic Death)

Ketch – The Anthems Of Dread (Aesthetic Death)

Hailing from Arvada, Colorado, a city built on the original site where the first nugget of Rockies gold was discovered in 1850, doom-dwellers Ketch have discovered something far darker lurking in their waters. Anyone dipping their sluice pan in this river will find a mixture of death,.. Read More
Raging Speedhorn - Lost Ritual (S/R / Pledge)

Raging Speedhorn – Lost Ritual (S/R / Pledge)

You all know this lot, and if you don’t, shame on you. Raging Speedhorn are one of the most iconic bands of the 2000’s, up there with the likes of Stampin’ Ground for intense live performances and hard hitting, no fuck given metal. The six.. Read More
Victorian Whore Dogs - Afternoonified (Hibernacula Records)

Victorian Whore Dogs – Afternoonified (Hibernacula Records)

Wit, humour and sludge do not often go together. Victorian Whoredogs mean to rectify that. Guildford in Surrey is also not a typical setting for downtuned moss covered riffage but that is exactly where this 4 piece herald from. “Afternoonified” is the band’s first full.. Read More
Battalions – Nothing to Lose (S/R)

Battalions – Nothing to Lose (S/R)

Sludge from Hull featuring an ex member of Winterfylleth. There are no echoes of Everything But the Girl, Kingmaker (I used to live in Hull) or Black Metal here. This is 27 minutes of fuzzy sludge. Big riffs backed by hardcore shouted vocals. This going.. Read More
