Perdition Temple – Sacraments Of Descension (Hell’s Headbangers)

Some classic religious baiting from a death metal trio here. Nothing new in that but when you consider the last time I encountered former Angelcorpse musician Gene Palubicki he was wearing priestly vestments and conducting a Catholic ceremony you may… Continue Reading →

Velnias – Scion of Aether (Eisenwald)

Yes, there have always been Fissures Within The Construct. Now that they have become apparent, everyone can see them, and the more time goes by, the wider they get, turning into broad cracks and large fractures. Velnias are from Nederland,… Continue Reading →

Hyborian – Volume II (Season of Mist)

It’s been three years since Mastodon released the magnificent Emperor of Sand, and with an almost flawless back catalogue it was with some intrigue that I listened to this, their eighth studio album…  Hang on a minute…  Are you telling… Continue Reading →

Fool’s Ghost – Dark Woven Light (Prosthetic Records)

Fool’s Ghost are a band from Louisville, Kentucky, composed of two people only, husband and wife Amber and Nick Thieneman. And let me tell you straight from the beginning that they have delivered a stunning debut album with Dark Woven… Continue Reading →

In what could only be described as any self-respecting fan of so called ‘Noise Rock/Metal’, this judicious melding of minds between Chris Spencer (Unsane), Jim Coleman’s sampling mayhem (Cop Shoot Cop), Phil Puleo (Cop Shoot Cop/Swans) and sticky, pounding bass… Continue Reading →

Drown – Subaqueous (Prophecy)

“Remember, O man, that dust thou art, and to dust thou shalt return.” Except for the cyclic part, the Catholic church has got it all wrong, of course. We are mostly made of water, not dust. The water, or the… Continue Reading →

Today Is The Day – No Good To Anyone (BMG)

It’s rare thing indeed, that a band manage to sustain themselves for eleven albums. It’s a back catalogue achievement that is usually reserved for stadium bothering behemoths such as U2, The Rolling Stones and Green Day and whilst those band… Continue Reading →

Intronaut – Fluid Existential Inversions (Metal Blade)

I appreciated the imaginative patterns of Intronaut’s “Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words with Tones)” (2013) if not the vocals. Since then they released a further album “Direction of All Things”, and now this, their sixth album release. I did actually see… Continue Reading →

Mondo Generator – Fuck It (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Fans of Mondo Generator must be salivating at the release of this album. Eight long years have passed since Nick Oliveri’s wrecking crew last unleashed their own brand of havoc. Not that the ex-Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age… Continue Reading →
