Son of Cain – Closer To The Edge (Raging Planet)

Windhand – Eternal Return (Relapse)

Earth Ship – Resonant Sun (Pelagic)

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

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 →

Saint Karloff – All Heed The Black God (Twin Earth Records)

Okay, let’s get this out of the way quickly. Yes, the band is called Saint Karloff. Yes, the logo on the band page is from the movie Black Sabbath. Yes, we all know which metal titans that film inspired. And… Continue Reading →

Weed Demon – Astrological Passages (Electric Valley Records)

“Hey you! Does your driveway suffer from damaging foliage growth? Is your lawn marred by unsightly dandelions? Well worry no more, and see them off with Ohio’s own Weed Demon. A single application of of their patented ‘Astrological Passages’ brand… Continue Reading →

Spaceslug – Eye The Tide (BSFD Records)
