EYE - Vision And Ageless Light (Lasers Edge)

EYE – Vision And Ageless Light (Lasers Edge)

Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, EYE have released their third studio album, “Vision And Ageless Light” which is an aptly entitled disc for this very interesting band. After a number of lineup changes, this four piece outfit have managed to craft a very elegant progressive space.. Read More
Comet Control – Centre of the Maze (Tee Pee)

Comet Control – Centre of the Maze (Tee Pee)

I’d never heard of Comet Control before, although the bio that arrived with the album assured me that it is the second full length release by these Toronto based self described “space rock cosmonauts.” However, as soon as the first song from ‘Centre of the.. Read More
Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard – Noeth ac Anoteth (New Heavy Sounds)

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard – Noeth ac Anoteth (New Heavy Sounds)

I just had to hear this one, especially when I read that their music features cosmically dark psychedelia and has drawn comparison with Hawkwind, Cult of Luna and Amon Duul II. Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard are from Wrexham/Wrecsam, hence the title is in Welsh. “Noeth.. Read More
Monster Magnet – Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux) (Napalm)

Monster Magnet – Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux) (Napalm)

As a rule, I really don’t like “remix” albums. In the pop world, the word simply seems to indicate no more than a tweaking of the auto-tune and changing the beat of the drum machine. Even in the world of metal, there have been some.. Read More
Tuliterä  – Tulikaste  (S/R)

Tuliterä – Tulikaste (S/R)

Unlike many folks I know, I don’t have a problem with instrumental albums. Many of the albums I own and play fall into that category, albeit they all seem to be by bands called ‘Symphony’ something or the something ‘Orchestra’; yep, like many metal heads.. Read More
Space Fisters – Vol. 1 (S/R)

Space Fisters – Vol. 1 (S/R)

Okay, I’ll admit it was the name that first got me interested in this band. As you might imagine the “Space” part whetted my appetite for a bit of intergalactic rock in the fine tradition of Hawkwind, but really, “Fisters”? Is this French trio sticking.. Read More
Black Space Riders – Refugeeum  (Black Space Records)

Black Space Riders – Refugeeum (Black Space Records)

There is an old adage that goes if you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all (dear editor, is that okay?  No!  Oh well.) Here comes the part of this review lark I hate the most, namely being critical of folks who are.. Read More
Kayleth – Space Muffin  (Argonauta Records)

Kayleth – Space Muffin (Argonauta Records)

Opening with what sounds like the whine of Captain Kirk’s phaser set on rock, it’s a fair bet that Italy’s own Kayleth are going to take the listener on a voyage into the outer space territory of Hawkwind aboard the starship ‘Space Muffin’. Opening track.. Read More
Lotus Thief - Rervm (Svart Records)

Lotus Thief – Rervm (Svart Records)

The San Francisco-based duo, Bezalith and Otrebor, have taken a side-step here from their other band, Botanist, to write an album inspired by the 1st Century BC materialist text De Rerum Natura. It translates as The Nature Of Things and is by the Roman philosophical.. Read More
Steve Bastado & The Albert Hoffman Experience – Centurion 29110 (Flicknife)

Steve Bastado & The Albert Hoffman Experience – Centurion 29110 (Flicknife)

There is no denying that Steve Bastado aka Steve (Speed Machine) Redman has led one hell of an interesting life. He probably has the scars to prove it and he definitely has the tattoos. He was in both the Magic Mushroom Band and Nik Turners.. Read More
Spectral Lore – III (I, Voidhanger)

Spectral Lore – III (I, Voidhanger)

I’m not sure if I’ve been paying more attention than normal over the past few months and burrowing into those dark corners to find new and interesting stuff, but 2014 is slowly but surely turning out to be one hell of a year. Helping things.. Read More
Hawklords Friends And Relations – 30th Anniversary Volume (Flicknife)

Hawklords Friends And Relations – 30th Anniversary Volume (Flicknife)

Flicknife have been compiling compilations of the many friends and related bands affiliated to Hawkwind past and present since early in the 80’s. Many fans of the band grab these up as readily as releases by Hawkwind themselves and it is not that there is.. Read More
