Nula - Kenoma (Black Bow)

Nula – Kenoma (Black Bow)

Belgrade based, post-Sludge five piece Nula are rather intense musically. With beer and dope, along with some filthy and heavy sounds as their main influences and being billed as something for fans of Cathedral and Type O Negative, there are some promising signs for this.. Read More

HARK – Machinations (Season Of Mist)

Bewildering. It can be a good or a bad description. I think the last time that word fell to nicely summing up music for me was Mastodon’s ‘balance point’ album Blood Mountain; the one where their sludge based heaviness still counterbalanced their burgeoning prog urges... Read More

Desert Kingdom – S/T (Black Bow Records)

New band, new EP, new review to be written, so Desert Kingdom’s eponymous EP gets a spin. But hang on, have I made some sort of technological mistake ripping the album, because whilst the player says ‘You’ll Burn’, my brain is saying, “that’s Orange Goblin’s.. Read More

Soothsayer – At This Great Depth (Transcending Obscurity)

Soothsayer. Great name for a band, actually, and a quick furtle around the Metal Archives pages shows that there has only been one before, a Canadian outfit. This Soothsayer are in fact from Ireland, and are described by their record label as “Atmospheric Doom Metal”... Read More
