Temples on Mars – S/T (Primordial Records)

My first encounter with London-based Temples on Mars was at ProgPower Europe this year. I learned that this London-based band was previously called Agent, hardly a stand-out name, and this is effectively a re-launch. After the band’s entertaining heavy melodic… Continue Reading →

Yawning Man – The Revolt Against Tired Noises (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Psychedelic rock and revolt? Not a natural pair. That’s what I thought first when I read that Yawning Man have a new album titled The Revolt Against Tired Noises. Yawning Man are a long-standing band from La Quinta, California. They… Continue Reading →

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,… Continue Reading →

Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun (Sargent House)

Time for a dose of stoner metal by a band with a name that sounds like the menu in a cheap steakhouse, but which actually has an impressive pedigree. These boys famously won a battle of the bands contest in… Continue Reading →

RAB – RAB 2 (Klonosphere)

RAB are from France. Their first album was called RAB 1, and their new album is called RAB 2. They clearly like a laugh (if the pun-driven CD artwork is anything to go by), and they simply don’t give a… Continue Reading →

Appollonia – Dull Parade (S/R)

Those of us who have been eager for the return of beautiful, melancholic heaviness of grunge can officially rejoice, as French Trio Appollonia’s fourth full length release Dull Parade is set to satisfy every last miserable bone in your body…. Continue Reading →

Birth Of Joy – Prisoner (Long Branch/SPV)

The interesting and talented recent crop of retro-rock/metal bands is a lush one indeed. Though Dutch 3 piece Birth Of Joy are new to me they have been steadily building a healthy following since their inception in 2005. “Prisoner” (album… Continue Reading →
