Haunted – Dayburner (Twin Earth Records)

Haunted – Dayburner (Twin Earth Records)

Firstly, let me warn you that those of you who were looking forward to or expecting some Sleep style guerilla release of Swedish Extreme metal, like me, you’d be wrong. This is Haunted, Italian purveyors of some classic occult tinged doom, and follow up to.. Read More

Spiral Skies – Blues For A Dying Planet (AOP Records)

It’s been 3 years, but finally following the success of their debut EP “A Queendom To Come”, Swedish Retro-rockers Spiral Skies present their first full-length album. It was certainly well worth the wait as it is a veritable cornucopia of psychedelia, blues, hard rock and.. Read More

Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget – Split (Cruz Del Sur)

I don’t know if there’s some cryptic message here that only truly makes sense when you’re seriously stoned, but something feels so fitting about the collaboration between The Wandering Midget and Hands of Orlac as if the two, albeit imaginary and abstract characters, might have.. Read More
Lisa Cuthbert – Hextapes (Iron Bonehead)

Lisa Cuthbert – Hextapes (Iron Bonehead)

This album arrived and immediately induced a sense of slight shame that I didn’t know the name Lisa Cuthbert, as she has worked with an extraordinarily wide range of bands from Marillion through The Sisters Of Mercy to Draconian and Ulver. Still here we are.. Read More
Luciferian Light Orchestra - Black (Svart)

Luciferian Light Orchestra – Black (Svart)

The name threw me first of all – a satanic Electric Light Orchestra perhaps? A Jeff Lynne-alike doing Metal versions of ‘Mr Blue Sky’ or ‘The Diary Of Horace Wimp’? Actually that might be quite interesting…but no, it’s not ELO or Jeff Lynne, it’s Therion’s.. Read More
Funeral Marmoori – The Deer Woman (Minotauro)

Funeral Marmoori – The Deer Woman (Minotauro)

When I pulled this disc out of its packaging I was instantly bewitched by its cover-art. The image attributed to Francesco Menicocci is really rather stunning in its grotesquery and just had me staring at it for ages. Reminding me of a book cover of.. Read More

Cold In Berlin – The Comfort Of Loss And Dust (Candlelight)

Cold In Berlin – The Comfort Of Loss And Dust (Candlelight)

After hearing and enjoying two albums by Cold In Berlin it was particularly interesting filling in the gaps and seeing the band live for the first time when they played the Candlefest last year. Cast somewhat adrift amidst bands more on the death and black.. Read More
Reino Ermitano – Conjuros de Poder (Ogro)

Reino Ermitano – Conjuros de Poder (Ogro)

You wait years for a Peruvian doom album and then two turn up in the space of weeks. To be fair there can’t be too many bands playing this sort of style in the country but then again what do I know as some quick.. Read More

Darkher – The Kingdom Field (Prophecy)

This is a most welcome discovery by Prophecy that seemed to come out of nowhere but actually comes to us from West Yorkshire where everything is a bit on the darkh side. This is a project from singer songwriter Jayn H. Wissenberg and she has.. Read More

Jex Thoth, Hung On Horns & Sea Bastard – London Boston Arms 8/10/14

On a wet, foul night in NW London bodies seeking shelter begin to fill the venue only to have to weather a storm of another kind courtesy of Brighton based noiseniks Sea Bastard. Big beards, big tattoos and even bigger riffs were their order of.. Read More
Mount Salem – Endless (Metal Blade)

Mount Salem – Endless (Metal Blade)

When is an EP not an EP? When you add two tracks to an already 34 minute EP I guess. Still, label and band call it an EP so we’ll just think of it as good value, eh? Right. So this is still technically their.. Read More
