Spider Kitten – Concise and Sinister (S/R)

Spider Kitten – Concise and Sinister (S/R)

How the hell can you begin to describe Spider Kitten? Amongst other things they are one of the most prolific purveyors of DIY heaviness you could imagine. A constantly changing collective that rotates around the central hub of founder and only permanent member Chi Lameo,.. Read More
Glorior Belli – The Apostates (Season of Mist)

Glorior Belli – The Apostates (Season of Mist)

There’s no doubt about it – Glorior Belli’s last album Sundown: The Flock That Welcomes was a belter. It was pitched as a return to the band’s roots, and if you consider Glorior Belli’s bayou-soaked roots to be sludgy, face-melting black metal with only a.. Read More
Desert Storm - Sentinels (APF Records)

Desert Storm – Sentinels (APF Records)

Once upon a time I arrived in London from the Antipodes and frequented a pub known as The Unicorn and happened upon an Oxfordshire band called Desert Storm. Happy man with mind suitably blown…the end. Not quite. Where would this young band go? This was.. Read More

Death Alley – Superbia (Century Media)

Death Alley – Superbia (Century Media)

Retro rock is being churned out like seaside rock in a sweetie factory in mainland Europe these days. It just depends whether Sabbath or Jefferson Airplane is written through the middle.  It either floats your tie dyed boat or it doesn’t. If it does then the.. Read More
Demon Incarnate – Key of Solomon  (FDA Records)

Demon Incarnate – Key of Solomon (FDA Records)

Well, this reviewing lark continues to be full of surprises. First surprise, the esteemed editor sends me a CD from FDA Records, a label that is pretty much intrinsically linked with the more extreme end of the market that really doesn’t get a play in.. Read More
Black Royal – Lightbringer (Suicide Records)

Black Royal – Lightbringer (Suicide Records)

For decades now rock music has divided its genres into slivers so that every specific , particular nuance can be catered to in an ever decreasing insular grouping. Prefixes and suffixes abound and genres get compounded to create Chimera that purport to be the next.. Read More
The Osiris Club - The Wine-Dark Sea (Indie)

The Osiris Club – The Wine-Dark Sea (Indie)

It’s easy to write about an album that’s really good. It’s also easy to write about an album that’s really bad. It’s not so easy to write about an album that’s somewhere in the middle. The Wine-Dark Sea by London’s The Osiris Club is such.. Read More

Doomster Reich – Drug Magick (Aesthetic Death)

After telling the esteemed editor of this site that I had tickets for Yes and Jethro Tull for their respective 2018 50th anniversary tours, for some reason I got a bit of a deluge of Prog to start my review duties for the year. However,.. Read More
Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

Legend Of The Seagullmen – S/T (Dine Alone Records)

What happens when you stick a guy from Mastodon, a guy from Tool, a film animator/director and a couple of other talented musicians together? Now before you treat this as some poor effort at humour, it’s actually a legitimate question! Back in 2015, rumours of.. Read More

Pioneering fuzz enthusiasts Fu Manchu, one of the pillars of the stoner rock and desert rock genres are back once more with album number 12; “Clone Of The Universe”. The long awaited and highly anticipated follow up to 2014’s ‘Gigantoid’ is a new chapter for.. Read More
Onyric Joy – Tales From The First Light (MMMmusic)

Onyric Joy – Tales From The First Light (MMMmusic)

As ever, one of the great joys of this reviewing lark is hearing bands that I’d be unlikely to encounter with my normal random sweeps though the potential musical goldmine that is the internet, and having recently had helpings of Prog from France, Austria, and.. Read More
