Coffins – Beyond the Circular Demise (Relapse Records)

Heavy metal, eh? She’s a queer old mistress, I reckon. I’ve been into metal as my primary musical love since I can remember, and she’s got so much to offer. Sometimes, I need to hear her in her most complex… Continue Reading →

Troll – Legend Master (Shadow Kingdom)

I was really impressed with Portland’s debut EP which eventually got released physically in this same label. Now with this next one, Troll have upped their game and entered the elite club of post civilisation doom. They have had many… Continue Reading →

King Heavy – Guardian Demons (Cruz Del Sur Music)

This is the third release from traditional doom band King Heavy featuring Luce Vee, singer of Hooded Priest and ex-Procession bassist Daniel Saa, based out of Chile. There’s a mix of Trouble and Reverend Bizarre as the PR material suggests,… Continue Reading →

Interview – Dautha

Swedish doomsters Dautha set the great bell tolling with their demo almost two years ago which was at long last followed with a full release last month. Brethren of the Black Soil fulfilled expectations of an epic doom event as… Continue Reading →

Doom Metal Lexicanum – Aleksey Evdokimov (Cult Never Dies)

I’ll start out here by saying this is some book. A suitably hefty tome and no mistake, wrapped in another marvellous cover by artist David Thiérrée (a print of which is also available from the publisher for a modest add-on… Continue Reading →

Opium Warlords – Droner (Svart)

Righteo, cards on the table, this is the most difficult albums I’ve ever had to review. Previously, that title belonged to albums that were either by bands I really liked but who had managed to give birth to a musical… Continue Reading →

Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget – Split (Cruz Del Sur)

I don’t know if there’s some cryptic message here that only truly makes sense when you’re seriously stoned, but something feels so fitting about the collaboration between The Wandering Midget and Hands of Orlac as if the two, albeit imaginary… Continue Reading →

Caronte – Yoni (Van)

These Italian stoner doomsters are a terrific band in my opinion, it’s still hard to obtain all of their releases I must say though. For this latest offering, ‘Yoni’ they continue on their tripped out journey through Reverend Bizarre territory… Continue Reading →

Dautha – Den Förste (Ván)

It might seem to regular viewers that I’d use any old excuse to crowbar my favourite albums from the 1980s into reviews whenever possible. But this year is the 30th anniversary of nearly everything ever, so it’s time to brace… Continue Reading →

Spiritus Mortis – The Year is One (Svart)

Finnish doom, you say? Oh, go on then! It is, of course, impossible to mention this branch of the slower, heavier, doomier genre without name-checking heavyweight outfit Reverend Bizarre, so we may as well go the whole hog and dive… Continue Reading →

Caronte – Codex Babalon (Van)

Italian doomsters Caronte are a special bunch of musicians, not only can they hold a flame to the considered greats, but they manage time after time with each release (no matter how relatively short in duration) to kick out the… Continue Reading →

The Order of Israfel – Red Robes (Napalm)

With doom legends Candlemass releasing an EP to showcase relative new boy Mats Levin it seems an appropriate time for a bit of reflection on the ways of heavy metal with a gravitational force. Doom in recent years has explored… Continue Reading →
