Foot – The Balance Of Nature Shifted (Cooper Feast Records)

When you think of Desert Rock, the vibrant California sands or the Europeans who emulate that iconic sound; Kyuss and the bands which spawned from their members such as Queens Of the Stone Age, Fu Manchu, John Garcia’s various projects… Continue Reading →

Ten Foot Wizard – Get Out Of Your Mind (Beard Of Zeus)

Let’s get one thing straight from the outset…Ten Foot Wizard are wicked good fun. Their oozy mix of party sized doom loaded with groove and funky swagger is damn infectious live. With “Get Out Of Your Mind”, the third album… 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 →

Phil Campbell – Old Lions Still Roar (Nuclear Blast)

As a huge fan not only of Motorhead, but also more specifically the Phil Campbell era, when I saw this arrive at Ave Noctum towers, I was really excited to hear what Phil had been up to. Apparently he’d harboured… Continue Reading →

Temples on Mars – S/T (Primordial Records)

My first encounter with London-based Temples on Mars was at ProgPower Europe this year. I learned that this London-based band was previously called Agent, hardly a stand-out name, and this is effectively a re-launch. After the band’s entertaining heavy melodic… Continue Reading →

Yawning Man – The Revolt Against Tired Noises (Heavy Psych Sounds)

Psychedelic rock and revolt? Not a natural pair. That’s what I thought first when I read that Yawning Man have a new album titled The Revolt Against Tired Noises. Yawning Man are a long-standing band from La Quinta, California. They… Continue Reading →

Transylvania Stud – The Red Queen (Transcending Records)

Whether a stud or not Andrew Godfrey calls Virginia home and not Transylvania but luckily this EP has something worthy of sinking its teeth into. Looking at his adopted moniker here you may well expect some sort of Finnish glam,… Continue Reading →

Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun (Sargent House)

There’s something about Chelsea. Something strange, sinister and utterly beguiling, something that makes you easily envisage her singing a dark ode at the end scenes in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks bar room. It’s a place where her haunting tones would… Continue Reading →

Ursinne – Swim With The Leviathan (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Blimey, another belter from Transcending Obscurity Records here with the debut album from Ursinne. Right, for starters what’s an “Ursinne” and what’s this band all about? Well for starters “Ursinne” is a Swedish word for “rage” and the band is… Continue Reading →

Her Name Was Fire – Road Antics (Raging Planet)

Her Name Was Fire are still a relatively new venture. The Lisbon duo have one EP to their name and “Road Antics” is the debut full length release with promises of stoner rock goodness with grunge and blues elements thrown… Continue Reading →

Steak Number Eight – Kosmokoma (Indie)

Time for a dose of stoner metal by a band with a name that sounds like the menu in a cheap steakhouse, but which actually has an impressive pedigree. These boys famously won a battle of the bands contest in… Continue Reading →

RAB – RAB 2 (Klonosphere)

RAB are from France. Their first album was called RAB 1, and their new album is called RAB 2. They clearly like a laugh (if the pun-driven CD artwork is anything to go by), and they simply don’t give a… Continue Reading →
