Zaum – Eidolon (I Hate Records)

If ever there was an open goal for a doom metal band in terms of musical and cultural thematics, this is it. The sound and spirit of the ancient East – long the imagined home of the tripped-out fan of all kinds of heaviness and.. Read More

Neurosis – Fires Within Fires (Neurot)

Pioneers of the modern day, progressive, post-sludge sound, Neurosis have been going at it for 30 years now, and have more than proved their worth in that time; now when they put out another record it’s not just a release, it’s an event. ‘Fires Within.. Read More

Atala – Shaman’s Path of the Serpent (S/R)

Slabdragger - Rise Of The Dawncrusher (Holy Roar)

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 is indeed weighty, mighty and.. Read More
Limb – Terminal (New Heavy Sounds)

Limb – Terminal (New Heavy Sounds)

If you were to play Limb’s sophomore record ‘Terminal’ straight after 2014’s self-titled debut, without knowing who they were, you’d probably assume you were listening to two completely different bands. This isn’t the case, however, it’s just the London four piece have taken long strides.. Read More
