Jess by the Lake – Under the Red Light Shine (Svart)

Jess By the Lake is a solo project of Jasmin Saarela, singer of the band Jess and the Ancient Ones. While her main band is known for a heavy psych sound featuring a bit of the occult, her solo project… Continue Reading →

Sabbath Assembly – A Letter Of Red (Svart)

A decade old and with a wealth of ideas soaking into their world both musically and thematically Sabbath Assembly have grown into one of the more interesting bands around and every new release has something different about it. They started… Continue Reading →

Kings Destroy – Fantasma Nera (Svart)

There’s something very satisfying in the earthy, deep and reverberating bass lines of stoner rock. They go straight to your guts and remind you of your most basic feelings and instincts. I liked that sound when it first appeared and… Continue Reading →

Demon Head – Hellfire Ocean Void (Svart Records)

I must admit I was curious about this Danish band, mainly because I like their band name (no they are not some sort of bastardised Diamond Head in case you’re thinking that) plus the description of their music hooked me… Continue Reading →

The Sabbathian – Latum Alterum (Svart Records)

So, hands up class, what kind of metal might we be dealing with when the band is called “The Sabbathian” ? Doom metal? Correct-a-mundo, albeit probably not quite in the vein that you’d be expecting. There are no Iommi-rip-off riffing… Continue Reading →

Interview – Kremlin

“Five-seated spacious craft with an unsteady hyper drive and a hazy transmission equipment” reads Kremlin’s Facebook bio. A sci-fi description of a band whose very sound encapsulates the genre of science fiction; however, it wasn’t always this way for Finnish… Continue Reading →

Interview – Alunah

For over 10 years, since first coming together in the English Midlands in 2006, Alunah have trafficked in a blend of the earthly and the unearthly.  2017 sees the band releasing their highly anticipated fourth album Solennial in partnership with… Continue Reading →

Katla – Embryo (Svart)

If you’ve ever heard Hawkwind’s “Silver Machine”, you’d recognise the start of this one. “Psychedelic” is the word that’s normally applied to this sound. The style then deviates away from straight rock to a different kind of crusty and woozy… Continue Reading →

High Fighter – Scars & Crosses (Svart)

It’s no surprise that this German band have been picked up by Svart, their debut self-released EP ‘The Goat Ritual’ received epic praise from all quarters of the press, so with the full length album there’s no better home for… Continue Reading →

Tombstoned – II (Svart)

In 2013 I reviewed the remarkably similarly named Tombstones and Tombstoned (check the archives of Ave Noctum), and it seems that 2016 will see history repeating itself as Tombstoned release via the ever reliable Svart Records the simply and aptly… Continue Reading →

Peace Killers – S/T (Svart)

Sacramento, California has been the birthplace of some real influential bands and artists over the years which includes the likes of The Deftones, Will Haven and Tesla. Joining this list are Peace Killers, a raw sounding stoner rock four piece… Continue Reading →

Sabbath Assembly – S/T (Svart)

There has been a lot of interest in The Process Church of The Final Judgment of late including a new film about the strange religious cult from the 60’s and 70’s. Therefore it at first seems somewhat strange that after… Continue Reading →
