Telepathy – Burn Embrace (Svart Records)

It seems like only yesterday that post rock quartet Telepathy had released their debut EP ‘Fracture’ and were supporting the likes of Latitudes at small pub venues. Fast forward nine years and the band are now on their third full-length… Continue Reading →

Regarde Les Hommes Tomber – Ascension (Season of Mist)

As time goes on, genre hybrids seem to grow more and more absurd, from the likes of post blackened hardcore to symphonic ambient drone, there’s no shortage of ridiculous sub-categories of music to scoff at. However, the label of blackened… Continue Reading →

Today Is The Day – No Good To Anyone (BMG)

It’s rare thing indeed, that a band manage to sustain themselves for eleven albums. It’s a back catalogue achievement that is usually reserved for stadium bothering behemoths such as U2, The Rolling Stones and Green Day and whilst those band… Continue Reading →

Maere – I (Lavadome)

I know nothing about Maere so it was dive right in unprepared really. We get six tracks, kind of. First is an intro; slow, deep brooding with vague vocal sounds. Echoing, hollow and buzzing of the void. Nicely atmospheric it… Continue Reading →

Goblinsmoker – A Throne In Haze, A World Ablaze (Sludgelord Records)

Goblinsmoker started as a one man band born in a Durham bedroom in 2016.  The idea that Adam Kennedy had was to combine the bleakness of Black metal and the colossal riffs and fuzz of Doom.  He had a story that he… Continue Reading →

Coming from the cold Swedish university city Umeå, the home of Cult of Luna and Meshuggah amongst others, tells you something. This is Moloken’s fourth album release. Expect darkness. Moloken immediately set about imprinting themselves on our mind with a… Continue Reading →

Kirk Windstein – Dream In Motion (eOne Music)

Ladies and gents, and any folks who do not identify with those labels, it is a simple fact that Mr Kirk Windstein (no relation to any #metoo misspelling fiddlers and diddlers) is rightfully afforded a near legendary status in the… Continue Reading →

Moanaa – Torches (S/R)

Polish sludge wouldn’t necessarily be something you would imagine yourself listening to, instead maybe something you’d pick up at your local corner shop and drink. But lazy cultural stereotypes aside, this is epic sounding (at least on paper) post metal/rock/sludge/doom…. Continue Reading →

Trup – Szmula (Godz Ov War)

I think Trup may translate to Corpse but anything else about this strange Polish trio is quite honestly not particularly up for interpretation in any sense of the word. V, P & B the mentalists behind this outfit come across… Continue Reading →

Lord Mantis – Universal Death Church (Profound Lore)

Everything in Metal has been done, and with the rise of online streaming services and the ability to distribute music for free via downloads etc the internet has become a haven for the weird. Often times I will find myself… Continue Reading →
