Obsequiae – The Palms Of Sorrowed Kings (20 Buck Spin)

Coffin Rot – A Monument To The Dead (Blood Harvest)

Blasting out of Portland, Oregon come Coffin Rot with their debut full length album “A Monument To The Dead”. Not a bad turn around as they only formed in 2017. In that time they’ve released two demos & a split… Continue Reading →

Völur / Amber Asylum – Breaker of Rings / Blood Switch (Prophecy)

Potentially we have here a temple of weirdness and melancholy as we have a combination of Canadian “doom experimentalists” Völur and San Franciscan “neo-classical ambient collective” Amber Asylum. Reading up on the background, the two bands involved recognise the same… Continue Reading →
