Avatarium - Hurricanes and Halos (Nuclear Blast)

Avatarium – Hurricanes and Halos (Nuclear Blast)

Jeez Leif – take a break man! I’ve only just reviewed Candlemass (and the rest…) bassist Leif Edling’s impressive Doomsday Project album earlier this year and here’s a new Avatarium album vying for attention. I’m sure right now he’s working on some new Candlemass stuff,.. Read More
Alfahanne - Det Nya Svarta (Indie)

Alfahanne – Det Nya Svarta (Indie)

Back around January 2014 Swedish reprobates Alfahanne really burst on the scene with debut album Alfapokalypse. It was a breath of rotten air bolstered by an urgent clamouring punked up backbone that took in various different ideas throughout its short, sharp running time. Driven by.. Read More
Royal Thunder – Wick (Spinefarm)

Royal Thunder – Wick (Spinefarm)

Grabbing the chance to wade into Royal Thunder’s world is always a bit of a pleasure. The Atlantan quartet are right up my alley often warping the softer edges of classic rock and grunge with deft psych touches to create a warm, unctuous sound. New album, Wick,.. Read More
Atavismo – Inerte (Temple of Torturous)

Atavismo – Inerte (Temple of Torturous)

With a promise of less space rock and experimentation than on their debut album “Desintegración”, Atavismo return with “Inerte”. From jam sessions, Atavismo put the finished structure of their self-proclaimed progressive and psychedelic rock pieces together. “Pan Y Dolor” (Bread and Pain), which opens the.. Read More
Black Magic Six- Choose Death (Svart)

Black Magic Six- Choose Death (Svart)

“Black Magic Six sounds like a Satan´s masterplan, the organs of Stalin and a howl of a Kallio-werewolf – all mixed together.” Or so says the PR. You can see why my interest was peaked!  “Choose Death” is the fourth full length from this heavy accented.. Read More
Troubled Horse – Revolution on Repeat (Rise Above)

Troubled Horse – Revolution on Repeat (Rise Above)

Örebro (pronounced in the most Swedish way you can imagine and not as I once did, making it sound like a famous German sweet manufacturer) is an extremely pleasant town with a nice castle. It is also home to my favourite Swedish football team. The.. Read More
Beth Blade & The Beautiful Disasters - Bad Habit (S/R)

Beth Blade & The Beautiful Disasters – Bad Habit (S/R)

This is the debut album from Cardiff rockers Beth Blade & The Beautiful Disasters, a result of a lot of groundwork and a successful pledge campaign, which appears to be a common occurrence in today’s music scene with the lack of label funding going around... Read More
Leaflet - Outta Door (VR Records)

Leaflet – Outta Door (VR Records)

Leaflet? Really? I mean it’s kinda like calling yourself Junk Mail or Takeaway Menu. Still I thought it made a little sense when the CD declared all but one song was written by singer and guitarist ‘J Leaflet’ even if it seemed unlikely with the.. Read More
Me And That Man - Songs Of Love And Death (Cooking Vinyl)

Me And That Man – Songs Of Love And Death (Cooking Vinyl)

Here’s a thing and a half. I mean the name of the group is only a little curious whereas the album title is a bit underwhelming and maybe the third or fourth one in my collection with that exact title. Then you notice that this.. Read More
Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Fäulnis – Antikult (Grau)

Out of the blue a sudden announcement came that German Sickblackartists Fäulnis were preparing a new album and I patiently awaited it to fall in my promo in-tray downloading it the second it did. From then I have been immersing myself back in their somewhat.. Read More
Black Mirrors - Funky Queen (Napalm)

Black Mirrors – Funky Queen (Napalm)

Debut four track EP from Belgian rockers Black Mirrors with a title that for me promises lots and threatens about the same; the kind of title that suggests female singer, low-slung guitar swagger in a doomy style and if you’re lucky a bucket load of.. Read More
GOLD – Optimist (Vàn)

GOLD – Optimist (Vàn)

I really appreciated the originality of GOLD’s previous album “No Image”, which mixed a gothic darkwave style with strong song structures. So too “Optimist” is dark and sinister. Hypnotising and moody rhythms, shadowy sounds and a haunting female vocal line are at the heart of.. Read More
