Demetra Sine Die – Post Glacial Rebound (Third I Rex)

Demetra Sine Die – Post Glacial Rebound (Third I Rex)

With the album title in front of me I expected Demetra Sine Die to be one of those gazing bands, all nice harmonies and looking out over a shimmering plateau of ice. Yeah I suppose there’s a little bit of that from these Italians who.. Read More
Blacklab - Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0 (New Heavy Sounds)

Blacklab – Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0 (New Heavy Sounds)

I was pleased to see this crop up in the review lists as a friend had highlighted the name Blacklab a while back and for once it has lodged in my tiny brain. Blacklab are a guitar/vocals and drum duo from Osaka and the 2.0.. Read More
The Lion’s Daughter – Future Cult (Season Of Mist)

The Lion’s Daughter – Future Cult (Season Of Mist)

A couple of years have gone by since USA blackened sludgers The Lion’s Daughter told us that Existence Is Horror and proved that statement to a certain extent with some rather nasty music, now they are back. My biggest complaint last time around was comparisons.. Read More
Abstracter – Cinereous Incarnate (I, Voidhanger Records)

Abstracter – Cinereous Incarnate (I, Voidhanger Records)

Secreting from the US this colossally oppressive extreme metal act suffocates the planet with their third auditory excretion that equates to asphyxiation submerged within a vat of corrosive bitumen the moment the album starts with “Nether”. Whilst my superlative ridden opening garland hints at a.. Read More
The Body & Uniform – Mental Wounds Not Healing (Sacred Bones)

The Body & Uniform – Mental Wounds Not Healing (Sacred Bones)

It’s been less than a month since the release of The Body’s ‘I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer’ and the Rhode Island duo are back again, this time for a collaborative release with electro punk pairing Uniform. Considering the abrasive nature.. Read More
GraveCoven -  Coughing Blood (Godz Ov War)

GraveCoven – Coughing Blood (Godz Ov War)

GraveCoven are a newish US duo who have released a couple of demos and a single before this twenty minute EP. The press release notes them as black doom and as the first song ‘Summoning Vengeance’ growls out of the speakers, I’m very much hit.. Read More

Bodies On Everest - A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

Bodies On Everest – A National Day Of Mourning (Third I Rex)

North-west UK based trio Bodies On Everest are an intriguing group. With a name related to the highest graveyard in the world, it will come as no surprise that both the musical content and delivery lies on the doomier side of the spectrum. With approaches.. Read More
Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Limb – Saboteurs of the Sun (New Heavy Sounds)

Given the kind of music that my own band plays, I’m surprised that I’ve never checked out Limb before. It seems like I’ve been missing out on something very special, certainly if this third L.P. is anything to go by. Prog infused and swagger-fueled doomy.. Read More
Formalist – No One Will Shine Anymore (Third I Rex)

Formalist – No One Will Shine Anymore (Third I Rex)

That’s one attention catching album cover and although I recognised the photo I wasn’t entirely sure about the story behind it and had to go searching. At first I was convinced it was some sort of satanic crime being represented and as Formalist are from.. Read More
Morag Tong – Last Knell of Om (S/R)

Morag Tong – Last Knell of Om (S/R)

Have you heard of Morag Tong yet? If you like your doom mashed up and spacey with plenty of space between the riffs and beats then you bally well should have. I first encountered this London based quartet in April when I was sent “We.. Read More
