Swamp Coffin – Flatcap Bastard Features (S/R)

I have never heard of this three piece from Rotherham before, but I have now and I am fucking glad I have. Not only is this a fortifying ladleful of grim UK doom/sludge, but Swamp Coffin is also a fucking… 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 →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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

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… Continue Reading →

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…. Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
