Staff pick
Heavydeath - Eternal Sleepwalker
death doom

First offering from the former Runemagick members lives up to the name Heavydeath. Great doom tunes, deathy vocals - but a good share of droning elements are the perfect accompaniment. And it is a tad amusing that Eternal Sleepwalker was released on Caligari records.

Mono - Kino Siska, Ljubljana, Slovenia - 23.04.2015 22.06

My interest in checking out shows of bands hailing from sub-genres like experimental post-rock, instrumental post-metal (or similar in this vein) has been present more and more over recent years. So, of course, to attend a concert of Mono in our capital city was the right thing to do. The band was touring across Europe in support of their latest double-album release: The Last Dawn and Rays Of Darkness. (by Abattoir)   Read more ››

Pallbearer - Foundations Of Burden (2014)

If you could encase within a coffin all that is texturally appealing about doom metal, Pallbearer knowingly carry six of these coffins to their grave in Foundations Of Burden. This is not to suggest that they simply bring the traditional sound of a genre to its untimely end, but, rather, in our modern era they place it respectfully in an ideal and honourable resting place. Ad Memoriam Doom. (by R'Vannith)   Read more ››

Death

Individual Thought Patterns contains the Death track "The Philosopher", for which a music video was made that received airplay on MTV and was even reviewed - and comically panned - by Beavis & Butthead, where the duo mistake the boy in the video for Jeremy from the Pearl Jam video and mock Schuldiner's vocals.
