Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard – Yn Ol I Annwn (New Heavy Sounds)

Welsh outfit Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard’s upward trajectory seems to know no boundaries at the moment. A visionary band, they set out on their quest to create a psychedelic, sci-fi trilogy that started with 2015’s “Noeth Ac Anoeth”, and 2017’s… Continue Reading →

Spacetrucker – Smooth Orbit – 2nd Pass (S/R)

Go on, just from the name guess what kind of music Spacetrucker play? Actually yes, but this St Louis trio have a little more under their cosmic hood than meets the eye. This is I believe their second self released… Continue Reading →

Motorowl – Atlas (Century Media)

East German psychedelic-doom five piece Motorowl are back once again with the follow up to their 2016 debut ‘Om Generator’. Much like their previous album, “Atlas” continues the use of psychedelic rock, 70’s style rock, space rock and elements of… Continue Reading →

Barst – The Endeavour (Consouling Sounds)

Apparently this is the seventh release from Belgian collective Barst. I can’t say I know much about the first five but last album ‘The Western Lands’ went down a treat. Imaginative, experimental and with literary source going back to William… Continue Reading →

Aerolith – Aerolith & Aerolith II (Jumping High Records)

So, what is Aerolith? Care of my very amateur science background, without having to looking it up I know it’s a form of meteorite, mainly of a rocky composition. It’s also, therefore, a very appropriate name for a self-defined space-rock… Continue Reading →

Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Church of the Leading Hand- What makes you Pray (WBR)

Transmission number 53 apparently from planet Der Blutharsch and these are becoming a bit of a regular thing since they discovered us. Not a problem, I am happy to waffle on about this Austrian lot’s odd musical cosmos. Their promo… Continue Reading →

Welcome to the world of Ufomammut on this the occasion of their 8th full length album. Following on from Ecate in 2015 these 8 tracks see the Italian trio soundtracking the collision of space craft and giant ancient beasts as only… Continue Reading →

Kadavar – Rough Times (Nuclear Blast)

Let me start this review with a deep and sincere apology to the editor of the site you are reading, Ave Noctum. I’m sorry this review has taken so long to arrive, but damn, I’ve just been so simply busy… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
