Vodun – Ascend (Cargo Records)

Vodun – Ascend (Cargo Records)

It would be more than fair to say that London three piece Vodun made a bit of a splash with their debut album Possession and subsequent live performances. They are a riot of colour and exuberance with a hugely energetic sound and concept, powerful distinctive.. Read More
Vintage Caravan - Gateways (Nuclear Blast)

Vintage Caravan – Gateways (Nuclear Blast)

Formidable: that’s an interesting word. Fans of heavy music know that one of the finest attributes is the respect paid to the originators of the style. Sometimes the influences overshadow the originality and we slide into “retro” territory. Then bands like Vintage Caravan come along,.. Read More
Psychotropic Transcendental – Lun Yolina Un Yolina thu Dar-davogh (Deformeathing Production)

Psychotropic Transcendental – Lun Yolina Un Yolina thu Dar-davogh (Deformeathing Production)

On the face of it, this is just weird. Psychotropic Transcendental is a progressive band from Poland purveying “narcotic porn metal”. The band history seemingly saw them split up in 2008 after one album release and now re-appearing with another one 17 years after the.. Read More
Motorowl - Atlas (Century Media)

Motorowl – Atlas (Century Media)

East German psychedelic-doom five piece Motorowl are back once again with the follow up to their 2016 debut ‘Om Generator’. Much like their previous album, “Atlas” continues the use of psychedelic rock, 70’s style rock, space rock and elements of doom and stoner, and much.. Read More
Saint Karloff – All Heed The Black God (Twin Earth Records)

Saint Karloff – All Heed The Black God (Twin Earth Records)

Okay, let’s get this out of the way quickly. Yes, the band is called Saint Karloff. Yes, the logo on the band page is from the movie Black Sabbath. Yes, we all know which metal titans that film inspired. And finally, yes, there is a.. Read More
Demetra Sine Die – Post Glacial Rebound (Third I Rex)

Demetra Sine Die – Post Glacial Rebound (Third I Rex)

With the album title in front of me I expected Demetra Sine Die to be one of those gazing bands, all nice harmonies and looking out over a shimmering plateau of ice. Yeah I suppose there’s a little bit of that from these Italians who.. Read More
Spaceslug - Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Spaceslug – Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)

Poland’s Spaceslug are a busy band. Their universe started to come together in 2015 but the big bang happened for them with debut LP “Lemanis” in 2016 and follow up, “Time Travel Dilemma” one year later. Punctuated by an EP release, “Eye The Tide” represents.. Read More
Black Elephant - Cosmic Blues (Small Stone)

Black Elephant – Cosmic Blues (Small Stone)

Apparently, you can’t tell what a book is about just by looking at its cover. Or something like that. You know the saying. But how about an LP? It’s much easier, isn’t it? Let’s say you came across Black Elephant’s Cosmic Blues in a record.. Read More
Evil Blizzard – The Worst Show On Earth (Crackedankles Records)

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)

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)

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
