Serpent Warning – Pagan Fire (Topillo Records)

Their debut was an emerging doom statement, this follow up is “doom-laden Serpentine groove” as stated in the PR material. The immediate improvement from their debut is the vocal delivery of Jimi Lehtijoki, he reminds me very much of Christian… Continue Reading →

Opium Warlords – Droner (Svart)

Righteo, cards on the table, this is the most difficult albums I’ve ever had to review. Previously, that title belonged to albums that were either by bands I really liked but who had managed to give birth to a musical… Continue Reading →

Spiritus Mortis – The Year is One (Svart)

Finnish doom, you say? Oh, go on then! It is, of course, impossible to mention this branch of the slower, heavier, doomier genre without name-checking heavyweight outfit Reverend Bizarre, so we may as well go the whole hog and dive… Continue Reading →

Goatess – Purgatory Under New Management (Svart)
