Gurt – Bongs Of Praise (When Planets Collide)

You know what? Gurt are just a shit load of fun. “Party doom” without a doubt. Live, they’re complete killers. The best bit though, is that they capture that vibe on record consistently which is a very important part of… Continue Reading →

Wizard Rifle – S/T (Svart)

The biggest surprise here is, indeed, that this whirlwind of sound is produced by only two people. Wizard Rifle, or more precisely drummer/vocalist Sam Ford and guitarist/vocalist Max Dameron, seemingly effortlessly manage to sound like a four/five-piece band. Judging from… Continue Reading →

Alchemical Wake – Cassiopea (Argonauta Records)

There is something about the ethos of the sludgier and doomier realms of metal that means whilst it can be complex and layered, equally it lends itself to a stripped back and minimalistic delivery. Being born from the simple guitar/bass/drums/vocals… Continue Reading →

Warcrab – Damned In Endless Night (Transcending Obscurity Records)

When Warcrab’s latest release came around for review, I put my hand up straight away as I have always had a soft spot for the Plymouth based six piece, based solely on a chance viewing of their set at Bloodstock… Continue Reading →

Swamp Coffin – Flatcap Bastard Features (S/R)

I have never heard of this three piece from Rotherham before, but I have now and I am fucking glad I have. Not only is this a fortifying ladleful of grim UK doom/sludge, but Swamp Coffin is also a fucking… Continue Reading →

Hope Drone – Void Lustre (Moment of Collapse Records)

Prior to this album, I wasn’t familiar with Hope Drone. I now know that their core style is a blend of black metal, sludge and post rock. “Void Lustre” follows an album in 2015, and an EP and single before… Continue Reading →

Uniform & The Body – Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back (Sacred Bones)

Uniform and The Body’s first collaboration ‘Mental Wounds Not Healing’ was founded on a mutual appreciation of each other’s work; ‘Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back’ was written in the wake of high demand for more of the electrifying horror… Continue Reading →

Immortal Bird – Thrive on Neglect (20 Buck Spin)

If you’re familiar with the 2015 release ‘Empress/Abscess’ then there is no introduction needed for Illinois’ Immortal Bird. If this is your first encounter with the blackened sludge/crust four piece then you can expect a maelstrom of cross genre brutality… Continue Reading →

Hammerhands – Model Citizen (S/R)

Not sure what they’re gargling in Ontario these days? From first track until last, the vocals ocellate from screamo, shouted barking to gargled, tar thick growling that sounds like a dying victim of a great white shark attack trying to… Continue Reading →

Torche – Admission (Relapse Records)

Okay, I’ll confess. Despite knowing they’d been around for a good fifteen years, and knowing that they had a solid following, I cannot honestly say I knew anything about Torche, nor their music. It’s not that anything about their reputation… Continue Reading →

High Fighter – Champain (Argonauta)

Hamburg based stoner-doom-sludge outfit High Fighter are back once again and ready to bring the filth this summer. With their first album, “Scars & Crosses” considered to be a success with how it blended fuzz-laden riffs with exotic flair, schizophrenic… Continue Reading →

Morass of Molasses – The Ties That Bind (Wasted State Records)

I was really excited to receive this from Ave Noctum HQ, principally because I had seen the band live at the Stoner V Doom festival earlier in the year, and found them to be one of the stand out bands… Continue Reading →
