The Kahless Clone - Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

The Kahless Clone – Our Never-Ending Loneliness (S/R)

For some reason the last couple of November’s Doom albums didn’t seem to hit our radar, shame as I have always quite liked the band ‘The Pale Haunt Departure’ 2005 being a particular favourite. The reason I am mentioning this is that guitarist Vito Marchese.. Read More
Upcdownc – I, Awake (S/R)

Upcdownc – I, Awake (S/R)

As an accompaniment, I was invited to listen to the Shogun Assassin soundtrack, which is cited as an influence on this album. This edgy soundtrack is of fear, possession and revenge. So too fear, sleep, dreams and nightmares are integral to this work. “I, Awake”.. Read More

Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

If you’ve ever read some of my inane scribblings, you’ll know I’m not at adverse to firing the occasional barb in the direction of the grim, kvlt mob who like to apply corpse paint and scream, and as such it’s a real surprise that I.. Read More
Black Mare – Death Magick Mother (Magic Bullet)

Black Mare – Death Magick Mother (Magic Bullet)

Ides of Gemini’s Sera Timms takes her musical output from that of the voluminous and co-created to the hypnotic solo dissonance of Black Mare. ‘Death Magick Mother’ is the second album of this project, mixed by Drab Majesty’s Andrew Clinco. Whereas debut album ‘Field of.. Read More
Timeworn – Venomous High (S/R)

Timeworn – Venomous High (S/R)

My interest was aroused immediately when a melodic beat, accompanied by a strange and deep chorus, blended into an explosion of heaviness. The rumbling beat and progressive post metal thunder continue. From this opening it would seem that Norwegian band Timeworn do not worry about.. Read More
Sleepmakeswaves – Made of Breath Only (Pelagic)

Sleepmakeswaves – Made of Breath Only (Pelagic)

It’s a strange thing when an intro is followed by what seems to be another intro. This is Australian post rock band Sleepmakeswaves, and this is their third album. Admittedly the second intro, an instrumental called “Worlds Away” livens up to the extent that there.. Read More
Les Discrets  - Prédateurs (Prophecy)

Les Discrets – Prédateurs (Prophecy)

Les Discrets may well have fallen under some radars, but they are a wonderful hidden gem worthy of immediate investigation. Describing themselves as “Cinematographic Indie-Post Rock from France” goes some way to describing their sound but they are really more of an enigma than this... Read More
Labirinto – Gehenna (Pelagic)

Brazil’s Labirinto have made quite a name for themselves in South America and beyond, their nine releases, two of which are full lengths, have earned them a reputation as one of the heavy hitters of the post rock genre. The four piece have now released.. Read More
Rome in Monochrome – Karma Anubis (Wintersleep Records)

Rome in Monochrome – Karma Anubis (Wintersleep Records)

Now I’m sorry but this is just incredibly frustrating – a band comes to the table with a lengthy biography, extensive details on the band members’ past activities and some bold pronouncements of blending post rock, shoegaze and doom. Sounds promising does it not? So.. Read More
Arcade Messiah – III (Stereohead Records)

Arcade Messiah – III (Stereohead Records)

I’ve been following the progress of John Bassett for a while now, first through a couple of releases from his Hastings-based band King Bathmat, then there was a solo album and now a third album from Arcade Messiah. What is always guaranteed is John puts.. Read More
