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
Spider Kitten – Behold Mountain.  Hail Sea.  Venerate Sky.  Bow Before Tree  (Undergroove)

Spider Kitten – Behold Mountain. Hail Sea. Venerate Sky. Bow Before Tree (Undergroove)

Apart from having a name that sounds like a Goth girl’s Facebook pseudonym, Spider Kitten are arguably one of the most prolific bands on the UK doom scene.  Don’t believe me?  Go to their bandcamp page (link below) and you’ll see well over twenty offerings,.. Read More
Byzanthian Neckbeard - From The Clutches Of Oblivion (S/R)

Byzanthian Neckbeard – From The Clutches Of Oblivion (S/R)

There isn’t much to do whilst living on an island in the middle of the English Channel (Guernsey) and luckily for our listening pleasure, Byzanthian Neckbeard have used this lack of activities to hole up in an abandoned bunker from World War II and create.. Read More
Corrupt Moral Altar - Mechanical Tides (Season of Mist)

Corrupt Moral Altar – Mechanical Tides (Season of Mist)

Formed in Merseyside in 2012, Corrupt Moral Altar have somehow managed to slip past my radar, given that it is my main base for gigging and music, I find this disturbing. Thankfully, when the review list came up and I saw their name on it,.. Read More
Serpentine Path - Emanations (Relapse)

Serpentine Path – Emanations (Relapse)

Serpentine path are a new force to be reckoned with in the doom scene. Featuring members of  Unearthly Trance and one of the founding members of Electric Wizard, they are a doom super-group in all but name really. After delivering a crushing debut album that.. Read More
Stoneburner- Life Drawing (Neurot)

Stoneburner- Life Drawing (Neurot)

From Portland Oregon they came. Laying down the sludgy groove like a JCB spreading tar. Lo and behold I did get stuck in their groove and gave in to the glorious muck. No struggle did I make just a constant rhythmic nodding of the head.. Read More
