Mountaineer – Bloodletting (Lifeforce)

OK let’s take this from the top or summit. Sherpa Tenzing, Edmund Hilary, Sly Stallone, Brian Blessed – sorry guys you have been usurped there is a new mountaineer in my life. Oakland, California is not an area known for… Continue Reading →

The Bloody Mallard – Realm (Onslaught Records)

The Bloody Mallard are described as a heavy psych, prog and alt-rock project, recalling the likes of King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Baroness, Yob and Elder. This album starts with a monstrous 11-minute instrumental piece called “Haemoglobin”. I felt the psychedelic… Continue Reading →

Opium Lord – Vore (Sludgelord Records)

There’s something decidedly foul going on with this, the second full length from Birmingham misery merchants, Opium Lord.  Vore is thoroughly dark, unpleasant and violent; it’s a glimpse into the minds of some twisted individuals.  The album contains elements of… Continue Reading →

Yawning Man – Macedonian Lines (Heavy Psych Sounds)

It’s not at all unusual in this topsy turvy world of rock and roll for bands to take years to produce a new album, the modern world meaning that very few musicians, especially in the underground, can keep body and… Continue Reading →

Tel – Lowlife (Aural Music)

“Tel” hail from Richmond, Virginia. Their name, as it turns out, is not a reference to the much missed Terry Wogan, but rather a Hebrew term meaning the rebuilding of a civilisation over the ashes of its former self. Or… Continue Reading →

Massa – Walls (S/R)

The Evil – Evil (Osmose)

2018 has been a big year for all things doom. Sleep, Orange Goblin, Boss Keloid, King Goat, YOB and Ghost have all released some big albums which touch on all aspects of this riff laden monster of a genre. The… Continue Reading →

Yob – Our Raw Heart (Relapse)

Early last year Yob’s Mike Scheidt was hospitalised for a lengthy period, following an attack of diverticulitis – a condition that affects the large intestine. Mike was left fighting for his life and the future of Yob suddenly became incredibly… Continue Reading →

Ghold – Stoic (Crypt Of The Wizard)

One thing I learnt while reading up on this album is that there is a heavy metal store called Crypt of the Wizard in East London. Having spent hours and hours in record shops in my life, and picking up… Continue Reading →

Yob, Black Cobra, Necro Deathmort – London Scala 13/10/16

28 dates down and just three more to go; tonight is the 29th date of Yob and Black Cobra’s European tour and it sees them filling up the Scala to near capacity. Necro Deathmort open the show to a sparse… Continue Reading →

Mammoth Storm – Fornjot (Napalm)

Yet again, I am left shaking my head in simple amazement; how the hell does Sweden keep on pumping out so many bands of such ability? As much as I love the UK doom scene, in terms of crushing riffs… Continue Reading →
