Dead Witches – The Final Exorcism (Heavy Psych Sounds)

I hadn’t caught the debut album of Dead Witches, which is a bit of an oversight for me, given that I’ve been a fan of Mark Greening’s other projects, such as the obligatory Electric Wizard, Ramesses and With The Dead…. Continue Reading →

Volcano – The Island (Tee Pee)

This mini album is the work of San Diego based psychedelic band Volcano. With psychedelia goes colour, and there’s plenty of that here. Even before we’d got through the first track we’d had African rhythms, electric funk and a little… Continue Reading →

The Sonic Dawn – Eclipse (Heavy Psyche Sounds)

It looks like psychedelic rock band The Sonic Dawn wanted to silence their critics by anticipating what they are going to say. Or maybe they are reacting to criticism they faced in the past. In any case, the lyrics to… Continue Reading →

Space Coke – L Appel Du Vide (Mystery School Records)

Fuzz buzz a go go from this Columbia South Carolina quartet on this their first full length.  Fans of Uncle Acid will dig these dudes take on Sabbath soaked psychedelic B movie grooves. The band have a love of Butthole Surfers… Continue Reading →

Juniper Grave – Of Hellions & Harridans (Wasted State Records)

Firmly rooted in the psychedelic rock tradition of the ‘70s with influences of occult artists like Blood Ceremony and Jex Thoth, Juniper Grave’s debut album “Of Hellions & Harridans” promises us tales of forgotten folklore and prophecies of doom. The… Continue Reading →

Old Man Lizard – True Misery (Wasted State Records)

Where the bloody hell does time go? A check through my personal electronic archives shows it was October 2015 I last reviewed Old Man Lizard with their prior self titled release, and even longer before that when I last saw… Continue Reading →

Mansion – First Death Of The Lutheran (I Hate)

Seems an age since I reviewed anything on I Hate, so this was a nice change. Maybe I’ve been shying away from doom recently as it becomes a never ending morass of stagnating seventies retreads. Or maybe I’ve been too… Continue Reading →

Nachtmystium – Resilient (Prophecy)

It’s been a long and fucked up ride for U.S. black metal experimentalists Nachtmystium… A band whose “Black Meddle” has won critical acclaim, but whose leader has courted controversy and divided opinion. But no matter on how you feel about… Continue Reading →

Vanishing Kids – Heavy Dreamer (Svart Records)

Ever imagined what it would sound like if Windhand jammed with Chelsea Wolfe? Vanishing Kids’ “Heavy Dreaming” might just be your answer. Founded by Nikki Drohomyreky and Jason Hartman (Jex Thoth) in 2000, the band from Wisconsin, USA, now contains… Continue Reading →

Sigh – Heir To Despair (Candlelight)

Anybody fancy a slice of fruitcake, best grab a jug of saké to wash it down with as this is an album that is going to be hard to digest even by arch nutters Sigh’s standards. The band never exactly… Continue Reading →

Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats – Wasteland (Rise Above Records)

I’ve been glad to say I’ve been following Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats (hereafter to be abbreviated to Uncle Acid; no disrespect to The Deadbeats, but it’s quite a long band name) since the early days. I won’t pretend to… Continue Reading →

Windhand – Eternal Return (Relapse)

Since the release of 2015’s ‘Grief’s Infernal Flower’, Virginian doom metal outfit Windhand have endured more than their fair share of upheaval; parting ways with one half of their founding guitar duo, Asechiah Bogdan, leaving Garrett Morris to carry the… Continue Reading →
