HARK – Machinations (Season Of Mist)

HARK – Machinations (Season Of Mist)

Bewildering. It can be a good or a bad description. I think the last time that word fell to nicely summing up music for me was Mastodon’s ‘balance point’ album Blood Mountain; the one where their sludge based heaviness still counterbalanced their burgeoning prog urges... Read More
Vermilion Whiskey – Spirit of Tradition (10 South Productions)

Vermilion Whiskey – Spirit of Tradition (10 South Productions)

Another new act, or at least new to me, to review with South Louisiana rockers Vermilion Whiskey and the EP ‘Spirit of Tradition’, and as you might expect, the influences of the American South are there in spades. ‘Road King’ is a chugging tale of.. Read More
Desert Kingdom – S/T (Black Bow Records)

Desert Kingdom – S/T (Black Bow Records)

New band, new EP, new review to be written, so Desert Kingdom’s eponymous EP gets a spin. But hang on, have I made some sort of technological mistake ripping the album, because whilst the player says ‘You’ll Burn’, my brain is saying, “that’s Orange Goblin’s.. Read More
Dead Witches – Ouija (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Dead Witches – Ouija (Heavy Psych Sounds)

‘Ouija’ is the debut album from doom crew Dead Witches, a band formed by Electric Wizard’s Mark Greening and Psychedelic Witchcraft front-woman Virginia Monti, a band that during their short existence have had to deal with the tragic death of a band member, guitarist Greg.. Read More
The Flight of Sleipnir – Skadi (Eisenwald)

The Flight of Sleipnir – Skadi (Eisenwald)

This US band’s sixth album promises “extreme metal and polarising tension”. The essential framework, at least to start, is harsh reflective post metal recalling wildernesses and epic scenes. Large chords abound but the ferocious winds and indeed growls die down to make way for a.. Read More
The Workhorse III - Closer To Relevance  (S/R)

The Workhorse III – Closer To Relevance (S/R)

When a band bills themselves as ‘The greatest power trio in the world today’ it can be taken in three ways; One: they might be telling the truth, Two: they are very ambitious and highly driven individuals or Three: the other two ways mentioned are.. Read More
1000 Mods - Repeated Exposure To... (Ouga Booga and The Mighty Oug)

1000 Mods – Repeated Exposure To… (Ouga Booga and The Mighty Oug)

Greece seems to have a talent pool of stoner inspired bands. 1000 Mods sit happily amongst them and new album, “Repeated Exposure To…” is a continuation of the band’s growing output. Having supported bands like Graveyard, The Black Keys and Karma To Burn, they’re doing.. Read More
Buzzard Canyon - Hellfire & Whiskey (Salt Of The Earth Records)

Buzzard Canyon – Hellfire & Whiskey (Salt Of The Earth Records)

There is nothing quite like filthy sounding rock n roll. There is just something in it which makes you want to get up and just go ‘Fuck It!’, letting go of everything and letting the energy it carries make you enjoy yourself in whatever way.. Read More
Interview - Truckfighters

Interview – Truckfighters

Friday night in Angel and there’s a steady gathering at the Islington O2 ahead of the Truckfighters’ second last UK gig. I am escorted to their dressing room where I’m introduced to Niklas “Dango” Källgren, who is calmly noodling away on a shiny black Gibson.. Read More
Planet Of Zeus, Helhorse, Wicked Stone – London The Borderline 27/11/2016

Planet Of Zeus, Helhorse, Wicked Stone – London The Borderline 27/11/2016

God sized sounds are about to envelop The Borderline as Greek riff lords, Planet Of Zeus return to London after a brief string of dates across the U.K. There’s plenty of patriotic countrymen milling about to catch their heroes and a whiff of anticipation for.. Read More
Asteroid – III (Fuzzorama)

Asteroid – III (Fuzzorama)

The “reactivation” of Swedish trio Asteroid, following a two year hiatus, has quickly led to the release of a seven-track third album rather unsurprisingly called III. Mostly we are dealing with the standard fayre of chunky swathes of fat fuzz over a groovy shuffling beat.. Read More
Domkraft - The End Of Electricity (Magnetic Eye)

Domkraft – The End Of Electricity (Magnetic Eye)

Swedish three piece outfit, Domkraft follow up last year’s self titled EP with this full length effort drawing on reliable influences like Neurosis, Sleep and Black Sabbath. They’ve gone in search of raw groove and psychedelia with bassist and vocalist, Martin Wegeland being a believer.. Read More
