Der Blutharsch and the infinite church of the leading Hand – Wish I Weren’t Here (WKN)

Well this has the label tag number 55 on it so that seems to be the number of releases we have reached from Austrian cosmonauts Der B as I shall abbreviate their name to for sanity’s sake. Although I have… Continue Reading →

Barst – The Endeavour (Consouling Sounds)

Apparently this is the seventh release from Belgian collective Barst. I can’t say I know much about the first five but last album ‘The Western Lands’ went down a treat. Imaginative, experimental and with literary source going back to William… Continue Reading →

White Hills & Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Desire (Van Records)

Wow Der Blut (as I shall continue to call them for sanity’s sake) have only gone and hooked up a band with about as many releases as they have. Both they and White Hills have over 50 to their name…. Continue Reading →

Seven That Spells – OMEGA (Sulatron Records)

Have you ever wondered what the surface of a space object might look like? Well, take a look at the video to the track Future Lords by Seven That Spells and you might get a pretty good idea. There are… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Wolvennest – S/T (Van)

Back in early 2016 I covered The Wolvennest Sessions via a collaboration between the Belgian musical chemists and Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand. It was an intriguing and depressive descent that took in doom, drone,… Continue Reading →

Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Joyride & The Wolvennest Sessions (WKN)

It took me a while to work out what exactly I had here when these 2 discs turned up. I remembered Der Blutharsch vaguely from the late 90’s as a martial industrial outfit. Helmed by Austrian Albin Julius they were… Continue Reading →

Oranssi Pazuzu – Värähtelijä (Svart)

These Finnish psychonauts have been around bamboozling the senses since 2007 and this is their fourth album. I think it is fair to say they were pretty unheard of in the UK until their third disc Valonielu dropped via Svart… Continue Reading →

Aluk Todolo – Voix (Norma Evangelium Diaboli)

Oh I see what you did there, naming an instrumental album ‘Voices,’ very clever but not sure about calling yourself an occult rock band when there are no spells being incanted verbally. Mind you there is plenty going on musically… Continue Reading →

Death Hawks – Sun Future Moon (Svart Records)

As the title suggests, this album is somewhere “out there”. Dreamy hippie sounds from a bygone era with a pleasant rhythm and a smooth song progression make for a calming and hypnotic experience. That’s typified by “Hey Ya Sun Ra”,… Continue Reading →

IIVII – Colony (Consouling Sounds)

Deep into space or beneath the ocean are two places that music often transport you to and they are places that I certainly like to dwell mainly due to the fantasy elements as they are places that most of us… Continue Reading →

E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr – Spiralo (Svart)

Those strange boffins are back dabbling in dimensions in time and space and following up on debut album Kometenbahn from last year. As far as the time is concerned they are manipulating frequencies from around the 70’s and 80’s when… Continue Reading →
