Void Of Sleep – Metaphora (Aural Music)

Void Of Sleep are a five piece band who hail from Ravenna, Italy, and much like their peers, the excellent Psychedelic Witchcraft, they play a rather mind-bending variant of doom. Unlike their peers however, Void Of Sleep focus more on… Continue Reading →

Witches Of Doom – Funeral Radio (My Kingdom Music)

Italian Metal band Witches Of Doom certainly have a difficult sound to pin down. The name suggests maybe an Electric Wizard style Doom, maybe a St. Vitus style, or at the very least an orange-amped fuzz-laden retro outfit, but Witches… Continue Reading →

Hyborian – Volume II (Season of Mist)

It’s been three years since Mastodon released the magnificent Emperor of Sand, and with an almost flawless back catalogue it was with some intrigue that I listened to this, their eighth studio album…  Hang on a minute…  Are you telling… Continue Reading →

Little Albert – Swamp King (Aural Music)

Pyrior – Fusion (Tonzonen Records)

“Hmm, intriguing!” That is genuinely what I said out loud whilst alone in the house on opening the package from the esteemed editor of Ave Noctum that contained the CD and accompanying PR release for ‘Fusion’. Firstly, it was an… Continue Reading →

It’s fair to say the doom metal scene is a tad cramped, and it will take something special to shine brightly in the hazy fog that surrounds the genre. Could this second full length from Oslo garage stoner rockers, Golden… Continue Reading →

Ritual King – S/T (Ripple Music)

Mancunian Metal anyone? OK, there’s more to Ritual King than mere Metal, but “Mancunian Heavy Psyche Stoner Rock with Retro Doom Metal Moments” isn’t a very punchy, attention-grabbing way to open a review is it? But the broadened description fits… Continue Reading →

Shadow Witch – In The Shadow Of The Witch (Argonauta Records)

There’s a question that I get asked on those rare occasions I get recognised as somebody who does a little bit of music reviewing that can really get my goat, and it is normally asked in the format of “hey,… Continue Reading →

Disastroid – Mortal Fools (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Heavy Psych Sounds is an underground label that continues to gain respect for their signings, and from their name you could well guess the sort of sound that characterised their first forays. However, taking a step away from purely nominative… Continue Reading →

Michael – Tell Your Friends (Cracked Ankles)

I know it’s getting difficult to choose a band name in a time when everything good is surely taken but this one is truly taking the Michael! Don’t despair though its all part of the zany and out there nature… Continue Reading →
