Kadavar – For The Dead Travel Fast (Nuclear Blast)

Long term followers of Ave Noctum who have had the dubious pleasure of reading my assorted inane ramblings will know that for a long time I’ve been a follower and advocate of a number of the many retro style bands… Continue Reading →

Nightstalker – Great Hallucinations (Heavy Psych Records)

Despite being a band since 1989, I must confess that this is my first time with veteran Greek outfit Nightstalker. On the basis that I liked the name of the album, and the cover art was pretty cool, I thought… Continue Reading →

Mars Red Sky – The Task Eternal (Listenable Records)

With autumn approaching, new releases from Listenable Records are arriving fast and furious, or in the case of Bordeaux trio ‘Mars Red Sky’, mellow as all hell and so laid back it’s practically horizontal. If you’ve not managed to hear… Continue Reading →

Goatess – Blood And Wine (Svart)

I first discovered Goatess back in 2014 when they headlined a gig in The Black Heart along with Serpent Venom and Sigiriya and it was a very memorable experience. Three different types of doom all working in perfect harmony to… Continue Reading →

Planet of Zeus – Faith In Physics (Heavy Psyche Sounds)

Ladies and gents, it’s time for me to be utterly honest and admit my bias; as well as being more than a little impressed by the growing line up of talent being put out through Heavy Psyche Sounds, I bloody… Continue Reading →

Monolord – No Comfort (Relapse)

Monolord. Well, what can I say? If ever a stoner-doom band nailed their flag to the mast and voyaged out across the THC seas on the good ship HMS Bong, few if any have been more honest and upfront as… Continue Reading →

Vokonis – Grasping Time (The Sign Records)

Grasping Time is the third full length from Swedish stoner doom rockers Vokonis and undoubtedly proves they have an unparalleled grasp of times gone by.  The album feels like a throwback to the 1970s, from the mystical hallucinatory hazed green… Continue Reading →

Torche – Admission (Relapse Records)

Okay, I’ll confess. Despite knowing they’d been around for a good fifteen years, and knowing that they had a solid following, I cannot honestly say I knew anything about Torche, nor their music. It’s not that anything about their reputation… Continue Reading →

High Fighter – Champain (Argonauta)

Hamburg based stoner-doom-sludge outfit High Fighter are back once again and ready to bring the filth this summer. With their first album, “Scars & Crosses” considered to be a success with how it blended fuzz-laden riffs with exotic flair, schizophrenic… Continue Reading →

Mammoth Storm – Alruna (Argonauta Records)

If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to see Andrew O’Neill’s ‘History of Heavy Metal’ show (unrelated plug, but the DVD is available now and well worth buying), there is a segment where he illustrates subgenres by firing the white ray… Continue Reading →

Morass of Molasses – The Ties That Bind (Wasted State Records)

I was really excited to receive this from Ave Noctum HQ, principally because I had seen the band live at the Stoner V Doom festival earlier in the year, and found them to be one of the stand out bands… Continue Reading →

Nebula – Holy Shit (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Holy Shit! Where’s the exclamation mark? That’s right, after a decade since their last album, Fu Manchu alumni Nebula return, and ‘Holy Shit’ is not really an expression of surprise, although it could well be, rather a simple description of… Continue Reading →
