Therapy? - Manchester Gorilla 16/11/18

Therapy? – Manchester Gorilla 16/11/18

As I scale the steps leading into Manchester’s Gorilla, I am met with a wall of black clad backs and as I peer over the shoulders of the gathered masses, it’s clear to see that there isn’t an inch to be had between the throng.. Read More
Chrome Division – One Last Ride  (Nuclear Blast)

Chrome Division – One Last Ride (Nuclear Blast)

After fifteen years and five full length albums, Chrome Division are calling it a day and this, appropriately titled album is their last. Now if you’re not familiar with the band, they started life as a Motorhead inspired rock and roll side project for Dimmu.. Read More
Iron Lamb – Blue Haze (The Sign Records)

Iron Lamb – Blue Haze (The Sign Records)

Back in 2015 I had the pleasure of discovering Iron Lamb and writing up their second album “Fool’s Gold”. It was a super enjoyable blast of oily biker rock that, while fun, was a bit too close to Motorhead to get any points for originality... Read More
Slaegt – The Wheel (Van Records)

Slaegt – The Wheel (Van Records)

This month sees Slaegt launch their third full length in just four years. The Danish quartet project a quirky upbeat nature through their music, even on early releases which were more straight-forward black metal. “The Wheel” continues where last years “Domus Mysterium” left off, taking.. Read More
All Them Witches – ATW  (New West Records)

All Them Witches – ATW (New West Records)

If like me, you were only vaguely aware of All Them Witches, it would be fair to expect them to be an out and out doom band from their name alone, fitting in so well as they would with such sorceress based acts as Witchsorrow,.. Read More
Crippled Black Phoenix - Great Escape (Season Of Mist)

Crippled Black Phoenix – Great Escape (Season Of Mist)

If you are looking for a review that will finally tell you what kind of music CBP exactly make, or if you are hoping to learn in what degree and how precisely they resemble Pink Floyd, then I will have to disappoint you, because I.. 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
Wytch Hazel – II: Sojourn (Bad Omen Records)

Wytch Hazel – II: Sojourn (Bad Omen Records)

Well, Wytch Hazel produced my album of the year in “Prelude” back in 2016, and it has remained in heavy rotation in my music list ever since. That album was a heady, smoky and somewhat charmingly naive piece of folk-ish rock warmth, with an insane.. Read More
Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Besvarjelsen – Vallmo (Suicide Records)

Something a bit different this time. Besvarjelsen (“conjuring”, in Swedish, language fans) are a Swedish doom band, featuring luscious female vocals, and a vibe so warm and relaxed it’s like sipping a quality whiskey by an open fire during the deepest of winters. I’m a.. Read More
Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

It was a dark time many months ago when Graveyard called it quits. Mr. Finger-on-the-pulse as I am, I actually didn’t find out about their decision to split until 3 months after the announcement, by which time the band had re-grouped minus the drummer and.. Read More
Old Man Wizard – Blame It All On Sorcery (S/R)

Old Man Wizard – Blame It All On Sorcery (S/R)

Old Man Wizard; well doesn’t that name conjure a few images? I expected a battering of down tuned guitars, sludge laden riffs, and a fog of THC fumes to come rolling out of the speakers, and indeed for the first few chords, that sounded like.. 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
