End Christian – Bach part One (Translation Loss / Internet & Weed / Corpse Flower Records)

End Christian – Bach part One (Translation Loss / Internet & Weed / Corpse Flower Records)

Trip Hop is a funny beast. As sludge is to NOLA the heady mix of rhythmic dance, hip hop and electronica slithered from Bristol in the 90’s. How strange to hear it’s influence so heavy in End Christian. This is a bizarre smorgasbord of musicians.. Read More
Fading Bliss - Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

Fading Bliss – Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

With titles like the above it would be a fairly safe bet that we would be in funeral doom territory with this Belgian group, and indeed that is the case. Four tracks and around forty five minutes: Ocean, Mountain, A Forest, Desert. A journey indeed... Read More
Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Voices – Frightened (Candlelight)

Well I have listened to this album every day for the last 10 or so. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and it hasn’t been a chore in the slightest. It’s just that a work of this breadth and depth is not going to.. Read More
Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures I-III (Moribund)

Vardan – Nostalgia: Archive Of Failures I-III (Moribund)

“Bloody Vardan,” are words I found myself muttering a lot in 2015. It seemed like every time I reviewed one of the Sicilian artist’s albums another turned up almost immediately and to say he is prolific would be an understatement and a half. It has.. Read More
Arroganz - Primitiv (FDA Records)

Arroganz – Primitiv (FDA Records)

I haven’t heard any of Germany’s Arroganz before, but this represents full length album number four since their first in 2011, and it’s clear that the trio of K (Bass, Vocals), P (Guitar) and T (Drums) know what they’re doing. (Actually, this represents album number.. Read More
Mindkult – Lucifer’s Dream (Transcending Obscurity)

Mindkult – Lucifer’s Dream (Transcending Obscurity)

“Doom, Stoner and Shoegaze” are the descriptions that accompany this album. I would add in a healthy dose of Garage Rock and Goth too. There is a distinct air of fuzz about the guitars that underpin this album with a delightful swish of a black.. Read More
Atriarch – Dead As Truth (Relapse)

Atriarch – Dead As Truth (Relapse)

Once I upgraded my musical reading from Smash Hits to N.M.E, Melody Maker and Sounds I remember well the tag of most miserable band in the world being thrown around a lot. It normally went in the direction of The Smiths, Joy Division and The.. Read More
Poison Blood – S/T (Relapse Records)

Poison Blood – S/T (Relapse Records)

Technology is a wonderful thing.  Connecting people around the globe in moments. Gone are the days of “Penbangers” in Metal Forces – waiting for those C90 tapes to arrive from the other side of the world – or up the road. A golden time then.. Read More
Alfahanne - Det Nya Svarta (Indie)

Alfahanne – Det Nya Svarta (Indie)

Back around January 2014 Swedish reprobates Alfahanne really burst on the scene with debut album Alfapokalypse. It was a breath of rotten air bolstered by an urgent clamouring punked up backbone that took in various different ideas throughout its short, sharp running time. Driven by.. Read More
Alunah – Solennial (Svart)

Alunah – Solennial (Svart)

For over a decade now, Alunah has remained one of the UK’s consistently finest purveyors of superb Doom, albeit having had assorted labels such as the very niche “female fronted occult rock” tag that was beloved of so many reviewers. Regardless of how you choose.. Read More
Interview - Alunah

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 new label Svart.  Vocalist/guitarist/songwriting band..

Klimt 1918 – Sentimentale Jugend (Prophecy)

Klimt 1918 – Sentimentale Jugend (Prophecy)

Every now and then, a record comes out of the blue that takes you totally by surprise – and Klimt 1918’s first album in eight years is very much one of those releases. The initial signs were not hugely promising – wistful, misty artwork, a.. Read More
