The Black Wizards – Reflections (Kozmic Artifactz / Raging Planet)

Damn this modern life for making me have to have a job to pay my bills! Why can’t I be like that Swedish chap who made the news a couple of years ago when he got state benefits to go… Continue Reading →

Here Lies Man – No Ground To Walk Upon (Ridingeasy Records)

Firmly entrenched in a 70s riff rock vibe, US based Here Lies Man offer a wholly new approach to the genre by incorporating African stylised beats to their enthralling songs which will hook you instantly with their innate catchiness. I… Continue Reading →

Sacri Monti – Waiting Room for the Magic Hour (Tee Pee)

It’s been four years since their debut, and my expectations are high for this one. The San Diego based quintet’s debut was a psychedelic master class, reminiscent of messiah’s Cream, Hendrix, Uriah Heep and so on. This one, well, they… Continue Reading →

The Meads Of Asphodel – Running Out Of Time Doing Nothing (Godreah)

First full length album in 6 years and there may actually be a sigh of relief that The Meads are not tackling anything biblical or historical this time around and are just running…. They do seem to go down hugely… Continue Reading →

Nebula – Holy Shit (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Holy Shit! Where’s the exclamation mark? That’s right, after a decade since their last album, Fu Manchu alumni Nebula return, and ‘Holy Shit’ is not really an expression of surprise, although it could well be, rather a simple description of… Continue Reading →

Nibiru – Salbrox (Ritual Productions)

This is a less of a music album, rather a magick ritual in seven parts. Nibiru are three mystical artists from Turin who perform “Ritual Psychedelic Sludge”. Their muse is Enochian a language recorded by 16th Century English occultist John Dee… Continue Reading →

Clouds Taste Satanic – Evil Eye (Kinda Like Music)

New York post-doom outfit, Clouds Taste Satanic have released their fifth long player “Evil Eye”. This is a two track instrumental album released on Walpurgis Eve that is the first of a destined two part sonic journey which will continue… Continue Reading →

The Well – Death and Consolation (Riding Easy Records)

Riding Easy Records are at it again. Emptying the murky bong water into the ears of the world. On this occasion it is the third coming of Austin three piece The Well. “Death and Consolation” is the follow up to… Continue Reading →

Albez Duz – Enigmatic Rites (Listenable)

This is the third album from Berlin’s Albez Duz. The word occult seems to be bandied around a lot with them, and apparently this harks back to the drug-driven early days of heavy metal. There’s definitely something old school about… Continue Reading →

Zaum – Divination (Listenable)

Zaum was a form of sound symbolism utilised by Russian futurist poets. I’ll leave you to look that up. It was also a Tool side project of sorts that only released one demo in 1996.  It was apparently also an Atmospheric… Continue Reading →

Lucy In Blue – In Flight (Karisma)

Coming from a label that generally houses prog and rock bands, I had a reasonable idea what to expect here, at least in terms of generic musical style. Lucy in Blue are from Iceland, and take their inspiration from psychedelic… Continue Reading →

Sabbath Assembly – A Letter Of Red (Svart)

A decade old and with a wealth of ideas soaking into their world both musically and thematically Sabbath Assembly have grown into one of the more interesting bands around and every new release has something different about it. They started… Continue Reading →
