Video Nasties – Dominion (APF)

I first came across Video Nasties, a 5-piece Liverpool-based band who can be best described as a blackened and grizzly tribute to John Carpenter. By blending the heaviness and harshness of Entombed and Carcass with the cinematic power of Carpenter’s… Continue Reading →

Then Comes Silence – Machine (SPV)

Nothing melts my frozen heart as much as the current resurgence of Post Punk sounds. (You say post punk I still like to say Goth). With bands like Beastmilk and Publicist UK coming out of the dry ice in the… Continue Reading →

Moanaa – Torches (S/R)

Polish sludge wouldn’t necessarily be something you would imagine yourself listening to, instead maybe something you’d pick up at your local corner shop and drink. But lazy cultural stereotypes aside, this is epic sounding (at least on paper) post metal/rock/sludge/doom…. Continue Reading →

Deviate Damaen – In Sanctitate Benignitatis Non Miseretur (Masked Dead Records)

Right. I speak not a word of Italian. Or German. I know literally a handful of individual words of Latin. So of course I’m reviewing this. Despite that I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the… Continue Reading →

The Well – Death and Consolation (Riding Easy Records)

Riding Easy Records are at it again. Emptying the murky bong water into the ears of the world. On this occasion it is the third coming of Austin three piece The Well. “Death and Consolation” is the follow up to… Continue Reading →

Oldd Wvrms – Codex Tenebris (Cursed Monk Records)

Forming in 2014 Belgian quartet Oldd Wvrms have bashed out two E.P.s and two full length collections in their short life. Their third “Codex Tenebres” is thunderous fist of darkly atmospheric instrumentals that draw from sludge, doom, post rock and… Continue Reading →

Clone Culture – S/T (Lifeforce Records)

I hadn’t realised that Milan was one of the epicentres of post punk and dark wave in the 1980s until I read the attachment that came with this. Well they recognise Joy Division and The Cure, and having heard this… Continue Reading →

Warrel Dane – Shadow Work (Century Media)

I’d just swapped out the Sanctuary discography I had in my car for a month with Nevermore, so all I’ve been hearing of late is Warrel’s distinct, but very dynamic vocals. Thankfully, it’s not a voice I’m likely to get… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
