White Hills & Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Desire (Van Records)

White Hills & Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand – Desire (Van Records)

Wow Der Blut (as I shall continue to call them for sanity’s sake) have only gone and hooked up a band with about as many releases as they have. Both they and White Hills have over 50 to their name. Anyone got them all? Nope.. Read More
Insect Ark - Marrow Hymns (Profound Lore Records)

Insect Ark – Marrow Hymns (Profound Lore Records)

The cover of Insect Ark’s new album Marrow Hymns features a phoenix, the mythical bird that is cyclically reborn. It is not a victorious image, not one that usually comes to mind when the phrase “to rise from the ashes like a phoenix“  is used... Read More
Windhand / Satan's Satyrs – Split (Relapse Records)

Windhand / Satan’s Satyrs – Split (Relapse Records)

In 2017 I was fortunate enough to see Windhand and Satan’s Satyrs play a rather excellent show at The Audio, Glasgow, where each act was clearly at the top of their game, opener’s Satan’s Satyrs being imbued with a new energy and fire as a.. Read More
Doomster Reich – Drug Magick  (Aesthetic Death)

Doomster Reich – Drug Magick (Aesthetic Death)

After telling the esteemed editor of this site that I had tickets for Yes and Jethro Tull for their respective 2018 50th anniversary tours, for some reason I got a bit of a deluge of Prog to start my review duties for the year. However,.. Read More
Seven That Spells - OMEGA (Sulatron Records)

Seven That Spells – OMEGA (Sulatron Records)

Have you ever wondered what the surface of a space object might look like? Well, take a look at the video to the track Future Lords by Seven That Spells and you might get a pretty good idea. There are razor sharp edges and slippery.. Read More
Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

What happens when you stick a guy from Mastodon, a guy from Tool, a film animator/director and a couple of other talented musicians together? Now before you treat this as some poor effort at humour, it’s actually a legitimate question! Back in 2015, rumours of.. Read More
Greyfell - Horsepower (Argonauta Records)

Greyfell – Horsepower (Argonauta Records)

Greyfell is a relatively new band from Rouen (France), who released their first album, “I Got the Silver” in 2015. I have to admit that I missed that release, so I’m happy to get a new chance with the second one, which is called “Horsepower”... Read More
Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Whether a stud or not Andrew Godfrey calls Virginia home and not Transylvania but luckily this EP has something worthy of sinking its teeth into. Looking at his adopted moniker here you may well expect some sort of Finnish glam, goth, horror punk abomination but.. Read More
Les Lekin – Died With Fear (Tonzonen Records)

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 Lekin”, bitter drinking legendary fly.. Read More
Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales (Svart)

Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales (Svart)

Finland’s Jess and the Ancient Ones exist in a sand filled snow globe from 1967–1969. The Summer of Love is still in full swing. Everyone has flowers in their hair and only the correct coloured acid has been ingested. Two years ago their “Second Psychedelic.. Read More
Psychedelic Witchcraft - Sound Of the Wind (Listenable)

Psychedelic Witchcraft – Sound Of the Wind (Listenable)

Psychedelic Witchcraft certainly doesn’t relax much in terms of activity. Back in the early stages of this year, the compilation/re-recording collection “Magick Rites and Spells” which featured moments of their 2015 demo along with some covers was initially thought to be a new release (by..

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Verdigris is more commonly recognised as some kind of strange blue-green-science-thingy involving acid, copper and weather effects… Or something which Wikipedia/A Chemistry textbook/Websters Dictionary or any other useful reference material can explain much more eloquently and effectively than I can… So if you’re of the..
