Evil Blizzard – The Worst Show On Earth (Crackedankles Records)

Straight outta Preston we have a gang of horror show freaks here who have been causing a bit of a stir. People in the know have mentioned Evil Blizzard to me in the past and told me I should check them out but so little.. Read More
Yob – Our Raw Heart (Relapse)

Yob – Our Raw Heart (Relapse)

Early last year Yob’s Mike Scheidt was hospitalised for a lengthy period, following an attack of diverticulitis – a condition that affects the large intestine. Mike was left fighting for his life and the future of Yob suddenly became incredibly uncertain. Thankfully, the inimitable frontman.. Read More

Morag Tong – Last Knell of Om (S/R)

Have you heard of Morag Tong yet? If you like your doom mashed up and spacey with plenty of space between the riffs and beats then you bally well should have. I first encountered this London based quartet in April when I was sent “We.. Read More

Spiral Skies – Blues For A Dying Planet (AOP Records)

It’s been 3 years, but finally following the success of their debut EP “A Queendom To Come”, Swedish Retro-rockers Spiral Skies present their first full-length album. It was certainly well worth the wait as it is a veritable cornucopia of psychedelia, blues, hard rock and.. Read More
Noisepicker - Peace Off (Exile On Mainstream)

Noisepicker – Peace Off (Exile On Mainstream)

When I was a youngster, if I wasn’t immersed in a world of Hendrix, Black Sabbath or Iron Maiden, I was busily exploring the blues. The darkness of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters; those bourbon soaked wails and gritty guitars.. Read More
The Dark Red Seed – Becomes Awake (Prophecy)

The Dark Red Seed – Becomes Awake (Prophecy)

Last year’s EP ‘Stands with Death’ promised great things for The Dark Red Seed, and eight months later the duo have delivered with debut album ‘Becomes Awake’. While the EP still clung to a little of the gothic neo folk that had clearly rubbed off.. Read More

Chrch – Light Will Consume Us All (Neurot Recordings)

Psychedelic doom metal on Neurot, what could possibly go wrong? After a debut album and a split with Fister, Chrch was signed by the famous label and now unleashes “Light Will Consume Us All” upon the world. With only three tracks and a total playing.. Read More
Thy Catafalque – Geometria (Season of Mist)

Thy Catafalque – Geometria (Season of Mist)

Getting to grips with the wonders of Thy Catafalque is like wrestling with an agile, ever morphing, psychedelic serpent that wants to love you to death. In fact, as you can perhaps tell, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to convey the emotional intensity the band manages.. Read More
Bong – Thought and Existence (Ritual Productions)

Bong – Thought and Existence (Ritual Productions)

Somewhat over four years ago, I was called upon to review an album by Bong, namely ‘Stoner Rock’, and on that occasion, it’s fair to say that particular offering had a harsh reception, where I described it as sounding akin to a stoned zombie trying.. Read More
Ex Eye and The Magickal Wow Band - KSET, Zagreb, Croatia, 16/4/18

Ex Eye and The Magickal Wow Band – KSET, Zagreb, Croatia, 16/4/18

Zagreb’s KSET, though not sold out, was nicely filled when Colin Stetson’s Ex Eye opened this year’s ZEZ Festival with a bang. Or a series of bangs, because Ex Eye’s drummer Greg Fox definitely attracted the most attention. Ex Eye are, as they said at.. Read More
Earthless – Black Heaven  (Nuclear Blast)

Earthless – Black Heaven (Nuclear Blast)

Do you have any Earthless in your life? If the answer to that question is a resounding “no”, it’s time for you to remedy that immediately, and before you go searching for the back catalogue this San Diego three piece has accumulated in their years.. Read More

Octopus – Supernatural Alliance (Rise Above)

In the words of founding member J Frezzato (formerly of Electric Six), Octopus is an underground, psychedelic rock beast which ‘just is’ for lack of a better and more accurate description. It doesn’t ‘conform’ to the millions of sub-genres, nor the widely accepted approaches many.. Read More
