Izah - Sistere

Sludge 23.05.2015

I reviewed their 2008 EP and thought they had potential. Consider that potential realized. Four tracks, all over 10 minutes, one over 30 - including one from the EP - show they've improved significantly over the years. Well done.

Santo Rostro - II: The Bleed

Spanish Stoner/Sludge 13.04.2015

Santo Rostro's sophomore effort is more riff-driven, mostly mid-paced stonerrific jams with power and just a dash of groove. Worthy of checking out? My advice, "Hunt It Down."

Ethereal Shroud - They Became The Falling Ash

Black Metal 12.03.2015

"They Became The Falling Ash", the product of a one man project, is a great album. Not only worthy of checking out, possibly a brilliant soundtrack for nocturnal explorations for the creepier parts of town or country near you.

Shepherd - Stereolithic Riffalocalypse

Stoner/Sludge 10.02.2015

It's always weird listening to the tunes of an MS user. You are afraid they'll suck and then you'll have to let a cool dude know his tunes suck. No worries here, just crunchy riffs and tasty tunes. Really solid album. How solid? The best thing to come from India since chicken Tikka Masala.

Tort - II

funeral thrash 04.01.2015

No sophomore slump here... Tort are back with more ugly, gritty music that mixes some doomy vibes with crunchy thrash riffing and a swell mix of growls and shrieks. Oh, and even more soundclips from B-grade Spanish horror flicks to introduce the tunes. Good times.

Memest - Bastards And Liars

Ugly 70's Metal 26.11.2014

In the vein of late-70's metal, when metal sounded, and looked, like Lemmy. Ugly. And fun.

Down - Down IV - Part Two

sludge 17.11.2014

Doomy, Sludgy Stonerrifferic hails to Sabbath. Sure, Phil's voice sounds a tad ravaged by time, but group has it's mojo on with second part of IV.

Into Orbit - Caverns

Post 10.08.2014

The New Zealand Duo craft some instrumental post-rock/metal goodness. Constructs and build-ups are well executed and enjoyable if standard format, but the crescendos really help make this a bi-polar bit of post-fun.

Sleestak - Doommantia Volume 2

Doom Stoner Sludge Psychedelic Drone 17.08.2013

A V/A comp with more than EIGHTY participating artists, including Sleestak, Evoke Thy Lords, and, well, eightysomething more. All in all you get more than nine hours of doom, stoner, sludge, etc tunes. Yes. Nine fucking hours of music. Available at bandcamp for a mere $10.

All proceeds go to help to raise money to benefit Ed Barnard of Doommantia.com. After suffering with heart problems for years, Ed was hit with astronomical hospital bills which left him homeless... so it's an awful lot of doom for a couple bucks to help a fellow doomster out.

Station Dysthymia - Overhead, Without Any Fuss, The Stars Were Going Out

funeral doom 03.08.2013

Oppressive, dark, s-l-o-w funeral doom with bits of drone here and psychedelia there. And yet another doom album to feature Greg Chandler twiddling knobs. Hopefully you can survive the 34 minute opener.

Sannhet - Known Flood

Post 18.06.2013

Sannhet mesh shimmering Post-metal with loads of periphery noises, static, while occasionally foraying into black metal territory to add oommph.

Evoke Thy Lords - Drunken Tales

stoner doom 23.05.2013

"This one time, in doombandcamp, Evoke Thy Lords stuck a flute in their... mix." A great stoner doom jam with the added twist of near full-time Forest of Equlibrium-like flute. Perfect to chill to as the Northern Hemisphere heats up.

Slayer - Decade Of Aggression

slaytanic thrash 03.05.2013

traded a copy of Nirvana's "Bleach" for this in '91. never looked back. Adios, Jeff. gonna break out the Slayer Food Mart mug tonight and hoist a few listening to this...



Eibon - II

Blackened Sludge 24.04.2013

II is pretty much what I thought it would be... 40 minutes or so of ugly, foul blackened sludge. Only instead of 6-7 tracks they crafted two 20 minute double-epics, tossing in some groovy psychedelia to boot. Rawr.



Clutch - Earth Rocker

hard rock 15.03.2013

Maryland's finest go once more unto the breach with their 7,494th studio album. Earth Rocker is a DC Sound Attack, featuring a bunch of songs heavy on crucial velocity. The Wolfman and I both kindly request you check this one out. MWHAAHHAHAHAHhAHAAHHAAHGFHGH!
