King Woman – Created In The Image of Suffering (Relapse)

King Woman – Created In The Image of Suffering (Relapse)

The first time I heard the name King Woman was when they along with fellow support act Wax Idols jumped ship on a Pentagram tour due to less than savoury comments attributed to legendary front man and former major supporter of the agricultural poppy industry.. Read More
Arrakis – Electricon (S/R)

Arrakis – Electricon (S/R)

Arrakis, the desert planet, home of Spice that allows interstellar travel, known as Dune, and also a rather good Greek instrumental psychedelic power trio. To take their name from the possibly the most famous planet in Science-Fiction literature is a pretty bold move, setting a.. Read More
Dread Sovereign – For Doom The Bells Toll (Van)

Dread Sovereign – For Doom The Bells Toll (Van)

For some reason or other we appear to have missed promo duties on 1st Dread Sovereign album ‘All Hell’s Martyrs’ in 2014. This was somewhat careless considering the band comprise of A.A. Nemtheanga and Dubh Sol from Primordial along with Wizard Of Firetop Mountaineer Bones... Read More
My Sleeping Karma - Mela Ananda (Napalm)

My Sleeping Karma – Mela Ananda (Napalm)

Translating from Hindi, Mela Ananda means “A gathering of bliss”. This is a rather fitting album title for the first live recording by Teutonic instrumental giants My Sleeping Karma in their ten year career. With MSK already receiving some pretty in depth coverage on this.. Read More
Wolvennest – S/T (Van)

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, psyche rock, experimentation and Krautrock.. Read More
The Ruins of Beverast – Takitum Tootem!  (Van)

The Ruins of Beverast – Takitum Tootem! (Van)

This 2 track EP from The Ruins of Beverast sees the one man Black/Doom project of Alexander von Meilenwald partake of the brown acid and head off into space. This is Black metal for Psychonauts or psychedelic doom for wearers of corpse paint. The Ruins.. Read More
Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Sucht & Ordnung (WKN)

Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Sucht & Ordnung (WKN)

Release number 49 (yes you did read that correctly) from Albin Julius under the (abbreviated for sanity sake) Der Blutharsch moniker. I am a recent inductee into this psychedelic musical cosmos having only joined when numbers 47 & 48 found their way to me; very.. Read More
Domkraft - The End Of Electricity (Magnetic Eye)

Domkraft – The End Of Electricity (Magnetic Eye)

Swedish three piece outfit, Domkraft follow up last year’s self titled EP with this full length effort drawing on reliable influences like Neurosis, Sleep and Black Sabbath. They’ve gone in search of raw groove and psychedelia with bassist and vocalist, Martin Wegeland being a believer.. Read More
Queen Elephantine - Kala (Transcending Obscurity)

Queen Elephantine – Kala (Transcending Obscurity)

With a production value as rough as a hangover, Queen Elephantine cast a little one-take stardust over their music. It’s lo-fi and dissolute. Hearing them recorded can’t be far away from the aural experience of seeing them live. Feedback and fuzz are their friends. Farting.. Read More
Hail Spirit Noir – Mayhem In Blue (Dark Essence Records)

Hail Spirit Noir – Mayhem In Blue (Dark Essence Records)

I was first introduced to this Greek band via their second album titled “Oi Magoi” and was struck immediately by their uniqueness and their completely off the wall style. So, buckle up as we head down the proverbial rabbit hole to a sonic landscape that.. Read More
Obake – Draugr (RareNoise Records)

Obake – Draugr (RareNoise Records)

Obake has nothing to do with a popular UK TV series, but is a Japanese term which means “that which changes” or “ghost of a departed one”. “Draugr”, which itself refers to a creature returning from the dead, is the Italian’s band’s third album release... Read More
Pelander – Time (Nuclear Blast)

Pelander – Time (Nuclear Blast)

If you are unfamiliar with Pelander, that’s nothing to be worried about, seeing as it is the first release by Magnus Pelander, Witchcraft mainstay, under his own moniker, and a definite change from his normal doom tinged heavy rock releases. Hearkening back to an era.. Read More
