Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Given the kind of music that my own band plays, I’m surprised that I’ve never checked out Limb before. It seems like I’ve been missing out on something very special, certainly if this third L.P. is anything to go by…. Continue Reading →

King Goat – Debt of Aeons (Aural Music)

Since 2012 and the departure of Robert Lowe, Candlemass have only released a single EP, albeit rumours abound of new work linked to some game or the other; well, what does that have to do with new release by Brighton’s… Continue Reading →

Towards Atlantis Lights – Dust Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

Towards Atlantis Lights brings together members of various bands including Pantheist and Void Of Silence, who have crafted an album utilising experiences based on historic events. However, be under no illusion, this is no mere retrospective tale in the style… Continue Reading →

Empress – Reminiscence (S/R)

An early 2018 review, and a true breath of fresh air boasting unexpected excellence; that’s the short version of the review for this EP, and whilst this may be more than sufficient were this a one inch column in the… Continue Reading →

Almyrkvi – Umbra (Ván)

What is even more shocking than Iceland’s recent rampant assault on the black metal scene (yes, we’re all still going on about it) is that it took so bloody long. I mean, sure Norway has the fjords and the mountains,… Continue Reading →

Doom Side of the Moon – Self Titled (Mascot)

Oh boy, I asked for this one. No, literally, I did. You see, Thee Editor had posted a discussion on it, and I happened to mention that having heard it over on Youtube, I thought that this was better than… Continue Reading →

Les Lekin – Died With Fear (Tonzonen Records)

“Les Lekin”? Well, that had me confused from the start. Say the name with a Gallic accent, and it’s “Les Lekin”, an existentialist philosophical movement of fey Gauloise smoking intellectuals; pronounce it with a bit of Mancunian, and it’s “Les… Continue Reading →

Lewis And The Strange Magics – Evade Your Soul (Soulseller Records)

Barcelona psyche-rockers, Lewis And The Strange Magics are an interesting prospect. Starting life in 2014 and with one album to their credit, sophomore release “Evade Your Soul” finds a band exploring a myriad of musical styles drawn from the sounds… Continue Reading →

Himmellegeme – Myth of Earth (Karisma Records)

Psych rock and atmospheric prog rock are at the heart of this album from Norwegian band Himmellegeme, so it’s not surprising to see the points of reference as Sigur Rós, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. To make this work,… Continue Reading →

Subterranean Masquerade – Vagabond (Vicisolum)

Subterranean Masquerade – expect the unexpected. There’s always something unexpected on a Subterranean Masquerade album. The band’s main line-up is normal enough as you look down the list of members – there’s of course guitarist Tomer Pink (the band’s founder),… Continue Reading →

Worselder – Paradigms Lost (S/R)

Groovers in the heart of the 90’s, well that strikes as a pretty good descriptive line to sum up this lot from the Pyrenees Mountain region of France. Just to clarify they play groove metal and it sounds very much… Continue Reading →

Brain Story – madeinside (S/R)

A Polish guy called Mariusz Kumala has created a progressive psychedelic rock project depicting musical space travel. “madeinside” is its latest incarnation. “madeinside” is indeed like a journey through the clouds. Echoing, synthesised voices, cosmic interventions and other wordliness are… Continue Reading →
