Old Man Lizard – True Misery (Wasted State Records)

Where the bloody hell does time go? A check through my personal electronic archives shows it was October 2015 I last reviewed Old Man Lizard with their prior self titled release, and even longer before that when I last saw… Continue Reading →

Watchcries – Wraith (Holy Roar / Headless Guru)

Watchcries are the new kid on the block; the four members came together last year from previous bands including Torpor and War Wolf, whose own brands of sludge had earned each a reputation for in-your-face metal. I first caught them… Continue Reading →

Beggar – Chainscraper (S/R)

This lot from the SW of England but now based in London obviously like the EP format as they have been steadily releasing them once a year for the last 4 as well as building up interest with live shows… Continue Reading →

Ketch – The Anthems Of Dread (Aesthetic Death)

Hailing from Arvada, Colorado, a city built on the original site where the first nugget of Rockies gold was discovered in 1850, doom-dwellers Ketch have discovered something far darker lurking in their waters. Anyone dipping their sluice pan in this river will… Continue Reading →

Gurt- Skullossus (When Planets Collide)

Gurt are fast gaining a reputation as British underground heavy metal favourites with a loyal following. Coming from the same mould as fellow sludge lords Bong Cauldron and Slabdragger, they also share a stylistic commonality with North American bands like… Continue Reading →

Primitive Man, Sea Bastard, Slabdragger, King Goat – London Underworld 11/6/16

Yet more collateral damage from Temples Festival, however, this show has the advantage of three bands that weren’t going to play Bristol at all, so those that choose to attend this gig are perhaps getting a better deal; hats off… Continue Reading →

Doom Over London Part 2 – London Dome 26/3/16

Today things get really busy. Within ten minutes of doors opening a band is on at the Boston Arms Music room, the second they finish another starts upstairs at The Dome. This is the case all day with 4 groups… Continue Reading →

Slabdragger – Rise Of The Dawncrusher (Holy Roar)

The name says it all really. Slabdragger. Immediately, weight and might spring to mind. We couple this with the words “Rise Of The Dawncrusher” and it’s hard not to salivate. Let us be under no false illusion, Slabdragger’s new offering… Continue Reading →

Old Man Lizard – S/T (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Suffolk sludgemeisters Old Man Lizard have returned to the fray with a new self titled album to follow up last years ‘Lone Wolf vs Brown Bear’, this time released via Italian label Heavy Psych Sounds, proof if ever that the… Continue Reading →

Slabdragger, OHHMS, Meadows, Old Man Lizard – London The Black Heart 22/8/15

The final show in a series of six dates together, Slabdragger and OHHMS give their tour a sweaty send off at Camden’s Black Heart. Stoner/sludge trio, Old Man Lizard, kick things off; the first of three performances in a test… Continue Reading →

Damnation Festival – Leeds University 2/11/12

You can tell how successful a festival is by the amount of people there and even as we enter the labyrinth Leeds University to negotiate the four stages that the event has been expanded to the first band on our… Continue Reading →

Caravan of Whores – Road to Kurti (SR)

These Oxfordshire natives are playing some fuzzed out, trip-tastic doom, like a cross between UK contemporaries Slabdragger and Trippy Wicked engaging in bong related incidents whilst making noises. These noises are over 30 minutes and there are only four tracks… Continue Reading →
