Sarinvomit / Eggs of Gomorrh – Encomium of Depraved Instincts (Krucyator Productions)

Time Lurker / Cepheide – Split (Ladlo Productions)

Two French bands uniting under the split release format here. Both have been explored by this writer in the past so I kind of knew what to expect. Fast tremolo picking, raging swarms of blackness and a harrowing, hollering vocal… Continue Reading →

Cardinals Folly / Lucifer’s Fall – Split (Cruz Del Sur Music)

This is a fascinating work. “Toteninsel” or “Island of the Dead” is the name of a painting by the Swiss Symbolist artist Arnold Böcklin. This album is based on the imagery of that painting. Farsot, who in their time have… Continue Reading →

Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Two well respected bands in extreme doom circles go at it together for this split release, both with one track each. Due to the genre as you would expect that does not mean a shortage of material in any respect… Continue Reading →

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard / Slomatics – Totems (Black Bow Records)

Having recently shared a stage at Camden’s Underworld for The Local Fuzz gig, it’s nice timing for this collaborative effort from Wales’ Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard and Ireland’s Slomatics. Both have have been hard at it and earned themselves solid… Continue Reading →

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper – Split (Relapse Records)

I think I must have been quick off the blocks to get a hold of this from Thee Ed, as I know that both Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper are some of the most hotly regarded bands of the last couple… Continue Reading →
