Children Of The Sün – Flowers (The Sign Records)

There’s a lot of retro “classic rock” around these days. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. I guess it’s more about the way it’s done. Sweden for some apparent reason seems to have been a hotbed… Continue Reading →

Dee Calhoun – Go To The Devil (Argonauta Records)

Perhaps best known as the voice of Iron Man, a stalwart of the underground world of Doom that has now finished with the far too early death of founder Alfred Morris III, Dee Calhoun proves that he is in no… Continue Reading →

Vermilion Whiskey – Spirit of Tradition (10 South Productions)

Another new act, or at least new to me, to review with South Louisiana rockers Vermilion Whiskey and the EP ‘Spirit of Tradition’, and as you might expect, the influences of the American South are there in spades. ‘Road King’… Continue Reading →

My Dynamite – Otherside (Listenable Records)

Straight off the bat, this album represents a style that isn’t on Ave Noctum’s playlists and is also different to what one might usually see on this label’s roster. However, the folks over at Listenable Records sent a copy over… Continue Reading →

Svvamp – S/T (RidingEasy Records)

Sweden has been a notable player in dishing up quality retro rock bands. Graveyard and Horisont leap to mind as two, who over recent years have kept the vibe of the classic rock era alive in this part of the… Continue Reading →

Planet of Zeus – Loyal To The Pack (S/R)

Athens’ own Planet of Zeus have a reputation for big riffage and since forming in 2000 they have toured extensively including being support for the likes of Clutch and Monster Magnet. There’s no surprise then, that fourth release “Loyal To… Continue Reading →

Blessed Hellride – Bastards And Outlaws (Rodeostar/SPV)

Named after a Black Label Society album, with a list of likes including Clutch, Texas Hippie Collective, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Jack Daniels, more cut-offs than seven seasons of Sons Of Anarchy and nary a naked chin in sight, German band… Continue Reading →

Mammoth Mammoth – Volume IV Hammered Again (Napalm)

Were I to judge a book by its cover, then this release by Mammoth Mammoth would not require the deductive skills of Sherlock Holmes to assist in reaching a deduction. Let me see, the title is ‘Volume IV – Hammered… Continue Reading →

Monster Magnet – Milking the Stars (Napalm)

It was only last October when I posted a glowing review of Monster Magnet’s excellent ‘The Last Patrol’ up on these pages, an album that made it into my top ten of 2013 with ease. Now, along with a solid… Continue Reading →

Sammal – No 2 (Svart)

Firstly, if you expect the cold climes of Northern Europe to produce nothing but corpse-painted, Lucifer worshipping, blood dripping screamers, apparently a result of lack of sun, Seasonal Affected Disorder, and Norse mythology, then Sammal are not for you. If,… Continue Reading →

The Golden Grass – S/T (Svart Records)

The Golden Grass are all about kicking back in the summer sun and letting their combination of blissed-out blues and warbling psych rock gently fold in around you. If their moniker didn’t give you a heads-up, most certainly the artwork… Continue Reading →

Jackson Firebird – Cock Rockin’ (Napalm Records)

Crude, lewd Australian dudes Jackson Firebird are a duo utterly embedded in the world of sex, whiskey and rock n’ roll. Following the past rules that seem to come with the sleaze rock territory, guitarist Brendan Harvey and drummer Dale… Continue Reading →
