SabaSaba
SabaSaba

While looking into this band I have learned there are TWO acts called SabaSaba so to avoid any confusion, no, this is not the latest album from the Ugandan rapper. Rather this is the debut from the Torino based psychedelic dub band. SabaSaba are part of Italy's tradition of creepy and cinematic music that has historica...view item »

Various / I.B.M
Reflection Series #3

Jamal Moss, the human being behind the Hieroglyphic Being, applies his special techno technique to three tunes by Public Image Limited, Kissing The Pink and Bigod 20. Perhaps not what you might expect Jamal to be delving into, but of course he t...view item »

Spotlights
Hanging By Faith

When reviewing this five track release from the ever-so dark and deep Spotlights, it is very important to have had a fresh listen to the track the EP is based on: Faith by The Cure. Anyone who is a fan of The Cure will understand that, like Sp...view item »

JASSS
Weightless

Having enjoyed both of the JASSS records on Mannequin’s ‘Death Of The Machines’ series, I was expecting more of the same from this Spanish artist. However, on debut album ‘Weightless’, she’s really spread her wings way beyond the fringes of the dancefloor and that EBM rooted sound. Although for sure there&rsqu...view item »

Thought Broadcast
Social Acid

Thought Broadcast are an industrial, post-punk band which create dissonant, churning sounds and Social Acid is perhaps the  most raw album yet. Comprising of crunching machinery type noises, Social Acid is dark and experimental and unlike anything else you’ll hear this year. Limited to 100 cas...view item »

The Circle and The Point / Sleepwalkers Local / Chapels
Split

OK, I THINK this is The Circle and the Point who I'm listening to at the moment and they sound like a right bunch of oddballs - in the nicest possible way of course. There seems to be a weird kind of semi-industrial noise drone loop thing going on which is making me imagine a Lucky Dragons remix of a collaboration between Starving Weirdos and so...view item »

Fret
Silent Neighbour EP

Pure carnage from Mick Harris (Scorn / Lull / Monrella / Napalm Death / Quoit / The Weakener etc.) on this 4-track EP from Ron Morelli's esteemed L.I.E.S. label. Mr Harris recently revived his Fret Alias for a devastatingly heavy and ice cold album on Karlrecords. If you've experienced the sheer joy of being pummeled by that record, or inde...view item »

Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain

Well yeah, Sleep. Lords of weed chords and at least 99% responsible for every single metal band that has the word bong in their name. Masters of that thing that most stoner bands immediately forgot after listening -- that all this gloomy, low-end bravado needs to be complemented with sweet, innately good riffs. ‘Holy Mountain’ is pre...view item »

Megadeth
Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good – The Final Kill

The story is now woven into the annals of rock history - Dave Mustaine gets kicked out of Metallica, forms Megadeth out of spite, blows most of the money that’s meant to go on recording the band’s debut LP on booze and drugs and then turns in a poorly-produced but still tough-as-hell...view item »

Sleep
Volume One

Sleep’s first record arrived when doom metal was an embryonic wee one, still afflicted with the memory of Black Sabbath and their nasal pantomime performances. ‘Volume One’ takes after ye olde sound in order to construct a new one, squealing out particularly metuhl riffs with plenty of stra...view item »

Witch Mountain
Witch Mountain

Herein I will give props to Witch Mountain, a band I expected myself to not at all like. My doom preference is the stuff with the indecipherable skramz vocals, where the cleaner, more Sabbath-invoking material usually leaves me wanting more grit and pummel. Witch Mountain have come to kick my ass and tell me to grow up, and I appreciate it: thei...view item »

Philip Best
Captagon

Philip Best is a power electronics nerd and member of the (cross out where necessary) exceedingly stupid/very good Whitehouse. He formed Consumer Electronics, the band where he antagonises audience members while whispering sleaze over dissonance, when he was fourteen. Ludicrous. Here's a book of things he write for the proudly turgid p...view item »

Black Sabbath
Supersonic Years: The Seventies Singles Box Set

This is a real treat for the Black Sabbath superfan in your life: a bespoke boxset of 7” singles from the band’s early 1970’s glory years. Ten remastered singles, including ‘Iron Man’, ‘Paranoid’ and ‘Sabbath Bl...view item »

Orange Goblin
The Wolf Bites Back

Ben, Joe, Martyn and Chris don’t particularly sound like a bunch of stoner metalers, but put them under the banner of Orange Goblin and they grow some sharp teeth to match their long hair and tats. The Wolf Bites Back is the London band’s ninth long player. It was recorded on analogue equipment and features a guest p...view item »


A Harbinger Sound Sampler

The fearsome Harbinger Sound label put together a compilation that captures the diversity and intensity of their current roster. A Harbinger Sound Sampler contains unheard tracks from Sleaford Mods, Consumer Electronics and Pain Jerk, as well as an astonishing array of angry, noisy and political ...view item »

Blacklab
Under The Strawberry Moon

Winners of my favourite album art for the year, please say hello to Blacklab, an Osaka local band who make barely decipherable evil. With a few of the layers in their musical trifle consisting of fuzzy texture, they top everything off with a big helping of doom. The lo-fi production and noisy carelessness that sums up ...view item »

James Plotkin
The Joy Of Disease Demos + Remixes

James Plotkin has delved into his archives and exhumed a bunch of previously unreleased, home-recorded, instrumental demos for his 1996 album ‘The Joy Of Disease’, which was released on John Zorn’s Avant imprint. They form an interesting sort of alternative version of the album which stands up in its own right. The man's skills...view item »

Witchskull
Coven’s Will

Any guesses? Yep that’s right, Coven’s Will by Witchskull is heavy riff-chugging stoner metal! Coven’s Will is positively dripping with mystical supernaturalism and overdriven guitar chugs, the kind of thing that could overwhelm an unprepared mind. All the way from Australia, but sounding like...view item »

Bell Witch
Mirror Reaper

A rhythm section fit for a throne, Bell Witch’s doom metal has somehow outsized and overwhelmed everything else in its genre, a behemoth of drums and bass that somehow sounds maximalist in economy. With their fantastical album art and their grand sonic ambitions (‘Mirror Reaper’ is eighty-three minutes packed into a one song pr...view item »

Sepultura
Arise (Expanded Edition)

Brazilian metal band Sepultura originally released their fourth album, Arise, in 1991. It had the sound of a band really getting it together and was the album that multiplied their fan base. This expanded edition features the original album, gloriously remastered, with 28 previously unreleased tracks on the CD version. The Doubl...view item »

ASG
Survive Sunrise

If you like Jane's Addiction, you're going to love North Carolina rockers ASG. 'Survive Sunrise', their first album in five years, expands on their trademark blend of southern-fried alt-rock and earworm hooks, weaving together soaring melody and summery riffs to electrifying effect. An infectious record, by an hard-rocking band....view item »

Bolt Thrower
Realm Of Chaos

Originating in Coventry, UK in the 1980’s Bolt Thrower went on to release Realm Of Chaos in 1989. This record can be described as a mix of early heavy metal that combines thrash beats and double bass drumming alongside heavily distorted guitars and shouted vocals. It is av...view item »

Efrim Manuel Menuck
Pissing Stars

After fully coming through on a long-term promise to deliver “a joyous noise” to a Godspeed You! Black Emperor record in the triumphant, communal, and all-loving ‘Luciferian Towers’, Montreal rock ‘n’ roller Efrim Manuel Menuck returns to the pits of doom. Th...view item »

Current 93
Swastikas For Noddy / Crooked Crosses For The Nodding God

Current 93, the perpetual post-industrial rabble rousers, have a record out named Swastikas For Noddy / Crooked Crosses For The Nodding God. Take that, childhood loves! David Tibet has no time for your sentimentalism. This 1986 double album is a classic Current 93 release, pe...view item »

Sunn O)))
Monoliths & Dimensions

Hey there music fan, do you like Sunn O)))? I hope you do because they've just rubbed their first full-on, proper new album in four years all over your face, going "Mmmm, sniff that, taste that, it's our new CD and everyone's saying it's the best one ever and you're going to buy it because it's sooo-oo-oooo good". Well yeah, it is pre...view item »

YOB
Our Raw Heart

What you gonna do with this Yob? You gonna get the head banging and the hair swaying? You gonna send several hundred devil-horn emojis to unsuspecting friends? You gonna just say “Yob” over and over again because it’s a purely satisfying act? Yes, all that and more in praise and celebration of ‘Our Raw Heart’, the l...view item »

Young Widows
Decayed: Ten Years of Cites, Wounds, Lightness, and Pain

This 15-track collection charts the first decade of Young Widow's career, and mines their vast catalogue of singles, b-sides, splits and rare songs, including four previously unreleased tracks. This record maps out the band's evolution form post-hardcore to pos-punk monsters, their genre-hopping and mastery of technique attestin...view item »

Coil
Astral Disaster Sessions Un/finished Musics

Coil's 1999 opus Astral Disaster is an often-overlooked highlight of their extensive discography, centring on sonically vast, emotionally deep Kosmische epics and punctuated with pithier statements. This release presents a brace of unheard tracks and mixes from the album sessions, including the lengthy Cosmic Disaster and a prom...view item »

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
Come & Chutney

From their name, their album title and the fact that Come & Chutney is released on ‘slurry brown’ vinyl, it’s safe to say that the three blokes behind Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters like to laugh. But did you also know that they like to fuzz? They fuzz hard on this LP, recalling Weedeat...view item »

Merzbow + HEXA
Achromatic

It’s ya boy Masami baby! Here he is working with HEXA, who are an interesting pairing in themselves: Xiu Xiu man Jamie Stewart and Room40 boss Lawrence English. The structure is one side of Merzbow produced and mixed by HEXA...view item »

Baptists
Beacon Of Faith

First of all, beautiful album art. Beacons of Faith is the third record from Baptists. Following pretty much the same sound as the bands' previous records, this is one that you don't want to miss. Atmospheric and apocalyptic, this record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and is released on Southern Lord.&n...view item »


Contract In Blood: A History Of UK Thrash Metal

Cherry Red Records with another box set here. Thrash metal from the UK has a tough time of it. Seen as a second-class scene when compared to those of the U.S.A. or Brazil, even the larger acts - Venom, Onslaught etc. - have received comparatively little global renown. These five CDs look to chan...view item »

Raw Ambassador
Shadows Of Evil

Antonio Barbetta’s Raw Ambassador moniker holds no punches or pretences, with releases on Reach Another System, Sama, and UN.T.O. he follows his namesake with raw and hard industrialised techno that is specifically made for underground clubs with strobes and cages, with an air of 80s doom. 12” on Man...view item »

Orange Goblin
The Big Black

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. The Big Black was their third album, first released in the year 2000 following production sessions with Billy Anderson. Cosmic weight is all over this release, from the space artwork to track titl...view item »

Orange Goblin
Thieving From The House Of God

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. Thieving From The House Of God arrived in 2004 as the band’s fifth album, and it found them adjusting to a smaller four-piece line-up. Of course, this merely focused the group’s riff-chugging power fur...view item »

Orange Goblin
Coup De Grace

Orange Goblin are yr authentic british stoner metal band, as heavy and, well, as stoned as the day is long. Coup de Grace is their 2002 fourth album, and it is such a consummate riff-chugging stoner metal release that John Garcia himself, of the legends Kyuss, even lends a hand on two t...view item »

Black Sabbath
Vol 4

Everyone’s favourite Birmingham-based proto-heavy metal gang are entering into a reissue campaign, restoring a host of their records to in-print and on-vinyl status. Vol 4 is a favourite among Black Sabbath fans, sitting at a point where the band have really worked out how to do what they.  ...view item »

Chelsea Wolfe
Hiss Spun

Over her five previous LPs, California’s Chelsea Wolfe has won many plaudits for her grand, gothic take on the classic singer-songwriter tradition. If Hiss Spun’s lead single ‘16 Psyche’ is anything to go by, all of the parts remain in good working order. If anything, Hiss Spun will...view item »

Kayo Dot
Hubardo

Originally released in 2013, the seventh album by Toby Driver’s crew spans three pieces of vinyl and a vast array of stylistic ground. Combining seething black metal, choral vocals, angular post rock, serpentine jazz, psychedelic chaos, brooding goth, crushing doom, and much more into a progressive and multi-faceted whole,...view item »

Nine Inch Nails
Bad Witch

Tonight at the Roadhouse, it’s the 22.85 Centimetre Nails! And it sounds indeed as if the association with Twin Peaks has rather rubbed off on potty-mouthed T. Reznor & Pals. Lead tune ‘Got Break Down the Door’ sets acid bass and very noirish atmospherics - particularly the lonesome brass a jazzhouse croon from Tre...view item »

Split Cranium
I’m The Devil and I’m OK

To quote Milhouse Van Houten, “fun is fun”. Better still is having fun through the medium of music, which is extremely rare, because music is de facto bad. I’m pleased to say one of the rare opportunities for musical fun exists in this most unlikely of places: an album-long collaboration between members of ...view item »

Ordre Etern
Revolució Soterrada

I mean… it involves someone pally with Nurse With Wound, so I wouldn’t expect a party bag. Ordre Etern is an industrial noise project straight out of Spain, using the transgressions of barbed-wire power electronics, dark ambient and general loud shouting to say some vague things about the &ldqu...view item »

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatef...view item »

AILS
The Unraveling

The Flenser have flensed another flensing. Thank goodness. In all honesty I just googled what ‘flense’ means in its verb form and I, a squeamish metalhead caught forever in a self-sabotaging paradox, don’t feel good about it. Here’s Ails; blame them not for these ills. Christy Cather and Laurie Shanaman were part of an av...view item »

Wayfarer
World’s Blood

If you thought Deafheaven were black metal’s peak of gimmick, look away: this one’s a Western. Wayfarer have made a record of specifically American black metal, taking the genre and using it to evoke the history of their native Colorado. The press release makes it unclear whether this is a glorificati...view item »

Napalm Death
Harmony Corruption

With 'Harmony Corruption' came a new singer and a new direction. Napalm Death had always been about extreme speed and extreme anger, and nothing was more extreme than taking grind directly into mid-tempo death metal. The album contains everything that Napalm Death would try on and discard throughout the coming decade: hyperspeed grind noise, har...view item »


Close To The Noise Floor - Formative UK Electronica 1975-1984

Close To The Noise Floor - Formative UK Electronica 1975 - 1985 takes ‘electronica’ as a nice and broad term: this compilation ranges from Throbbing Gristle to Spoon Fazer to Blancmange, with the intention of showing off the whole range of the period, from the familiar to th...view item »

Ghost
Opus Eponymous

Firmly old-school hard-rock from Ghost (the Swedish version). Opus Eponymous was first released in 2010 (not, as you might have guessed, 1978), and is now reissued as a picture disc. Lots of devil-worshipping lyrics over the chugging riffs, and some track titles that are in Latin too. On the Rise Above label....view item »

Mayhem
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas

An entirely crucial foundational text of black metal: the first album by Mayhem! With a release history clouded with murders and suicides (how trve kvlt can you get?), De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas still stands as a mighty blast of icy Norwegian power. The line-up for the album’s recording includes both Attila...view item »

Mayhem
Deathcrush

Reissue of Deathcrush, the debut EP of Norwegian black metal legends Mayhem and apparently the first studio release of any band in the scene. It’s a quick and speedy blast of a record, featuring a surprising opening in the form of a version of a Conrad Schnitzler piece.... followed shortly afterwa...view item »

Svalbard
It's Hard To Have Hope

Not a second of ‘It’s Hard to Have Hope’ is wasted. Dropping the ball a sum total of zero times on their way to following up the intense and overwrought post-metal of ‘One Day This Will All End’, Svalbard pitch a furious political checklist of a record, one that sees Serena Cherry scream out experiences of being a w...view item »

Black Sabbath
Paranoid

Paranoid was the second album by influential british hard rock band Black Sabbath. It was originally released in 1970. It is notable for containing some of the band’s most famous tracks such as War Pigs, Iron Man and the title track which also reached the top spot in the singles charts back when ...view item »

Nurse With Wound
Sinister Whimsy For The Wretched

2CD set of the out of print Nurse With Wound albums, Sugar Fish Drink and Large Ladies With Cake in the Oven. Can the music live up to the oddness promised by the titles of these things? Honestly, probably. Some of the tracks might be familiar to fans of Nurse With Wound but ...view item »

Witchsorrow
Hexenhammer

Reinforced doominations from Witchsorrow see them go harder and heavier than usual, seemingly wanting to block off the easy routes and access points one might usually find. Hexenhammer is a declaration of the band's favourite genre hallmarks and was recorded with metal overlord Chris Fielding, who's ...view item »

Nine Inch Nails
Pretty Hate Machine

Trent Reznor has become legendary for the sound he perfected in "Pretty Hate Machine," his exceptional debut album. Wrapped in catchy industrial beats and sizzling basslines, he exposes all the rage and pain from being betrayed. Like a bad breakup, it's raw and rough and painful, but there's a strange catharsis once it's over. "Pretty Hate Machi...view item »

Age Of Taurus
The Colony Slain

Let me tell you, being a Taurus ain’t easy. You live in constant fear of change, of disruption, and of movement. The last thing we need is an epoch in which the defining characteristics are shared with the bull sign. But doom-metallers Age Of Taurus clearly think differently. On The Colony Slain, their follow-up L...view item »

Colin Potter
The Where House?

Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Organum, Other Bands - tireless sound-maverick Colin Potter has worked with them all, and knocked out an overwhelming stream of his own material since 1980 right up to the present day. The Where House? is one of his first releases, now rema...view item »

Birds In Row
We Already Lost The World

We Already Lost The World; Songs called things like ‘We Count So We Don’t Have To Listen’; Out via Deathwish Inc. (Converge, Deafheaven); this isn’t going to be a cheery one, is it. But it is an impassioned and often powerful performance from French group ...view item »

Wolf Eyes
Dread

American experimentalists Wolf Eyes add a distinctly Detroit twist to electronics, dub and punk. The band are one-of-a-kind but count Suicide and Cabaret Voltaire among their inspirations. Dread has been out of print for the best part of twenty years making it a sought-after lost classic, albeit...view item »

AJA
AJA

Sweet Lord, this tape has proper caved my head in. It’s as though AJA’s mind had literally exploded onto tape, resulting in a blistering and glorious cacophony of relentlessly powerful, unhinged, and cathartic racket. ‘Rattles’ opens the tape with menacing drum machine eruptions and vocals that appear to be utteri...view item »

D.Z. Lectric & Anthon Shield
Lickin'

Minimal Wave unearth more vintage monochrome synth action in the form of this limited vinyl LP by Gallic duo DZ Lectric + Anthon Shield. All the tracks - which are of course intense, serious and cold, oh so cold - are sourced from a 1985 cassette entitled ‘Confessions D’Un Masque’ and have been fully remas...view item »

The Body
I Have Fought Against It, But I Can't Any Longer

As someone who’s favourite Fugazi song is the the least Fugazi-like Fugazi song ('Instrument Soundtrack'’s ‘I’m So Tired’ for the record) maybe it’s no surprise that my favourite metal band are not in a lot of ways, not very metal. The Body of course...view item »

Ghost
Prequelle

Look at that album art. It's one of the most haunting things I've ever seen but that's not too unusual for Ghost. This record promises to delve into even darker territory than their previous records, and looking at the sleeve, I can very well imagine that it does. This terrifying record is available on a very limited edition gold coloured vinyl ...view item »

Melvins
Bullhead

It's hard to explain how influential the Melvins are; mention their name and even a casual fan of alternative rock may make the link to Nirvana and their influence on Kurt Cobain. Going deeper, and with reference to this particular period of the Melvins' ever-evolving sound, 1991's Bullhead is a stone-cold stoner/doom/drone rock classic which ha...view item »

From Beyond
The Band From Beyond

From Beyond trace their supernatural origin back to Houston, Texas. The spooky forest and neon text on the album’s cover art has an eerie, Twin Peaks-y atmosphere to it, while the early 90s hard rock style of the music also pulls off a sinister vibe with John Carpenter-esque keyboards and a lot of reverb on the le...view item »

Mastodon
Cold Dark Place

Cold Dark Place by Atlanta, Georgia metallers Mastodon is a four-track EP featuring previously unreleased songs from the sessions that bore the 2014 album Once More ‘Round The Sun and 2016 album Emperor of Sand. Three of the tracks were produced by Nick Raskulinecz and one track was produced by Brendan O’Brien. Limit...view item »

Cave In
Perfect Pitch Black

After almost imploding under the major-label pressures and demands of constant touring off of their previous record 'Antenna' (an album the band didn't especially like but the public seemed to love) Hydra Head Records gave Cave In as much time the band desperately needed to produce their next record. Perfect Pitch Black has the mixture of brand ...view item »

Visions & Phurpa
Monad

Apparently (and disappointingly) not a DJ Screw-style chopping and screwing of the back catalogue of Mission Of Burma, the 100th release from Berlin imprint Cyclic Law is a coming-together between label boss Visions and shamanic Russian choir Phurpa. The co...view item »

The Boats
Abstraction

I can well imagine a few of The Boats devotees being somewhat alienated by their recent forays into a brutal industrial techno sound. But for these ears this tougher palette carries greater emotional impact. In stark contrast to their earlier, more pastoral electronica, this records predecessor ‘Nomenclature...view item »

High Rise
High Rise II

Black Editions’ reissue program of the catalogue of Tokyo’s P.S.F. Records continues with this 1986 recording. Asahito Nanjo’s trio had a relatively traditional and stripped-down approach to psychedelia, rooted in the speedfreak biker rock’n’roll of Blue Che...view item »

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Pusher Man

Sounding more like the 60 incarnations of Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper than having just released the album from which this track is taken in 2015, Cambridge’s Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats bring back the heyday of heavy metal without a hint of tongue-in-cheek. Cover of Iron Maid...view item »

Electric Wizard
Witchcult Today

The minute you drop the needle on this lysergic behemoth of a record the trance begins…you are hit in the face with a wall of monolithic fuzz and drum patterns that thump along like the relentless undead in a b-movie. Everything about this record screams of the occult, from the horror references (H.P. Lovecraft - Dunwich Horror, ...view item »

Mastodon
Remission

Mastodon are a band driven by quite a few unique elements. The musicianship on here is very impressive, better than most bands in the pot. The drumming is probably some of the best, including the guitars which go great with it. Also, the band tends to enjoy theme based songs and albums, another thing that adds to their artsy feel. Also, emo fans...view item »

Group A
Group A

This 3-track debut EP is a powerful statement of intent from from Berlin-via-Tokyo experimental synth duo group A. Proclaiming their sound a "non-stop wave of avant-garde noise", the pair have created an industrial-soaked, highly political record which rails against capitalism through a wall of almost indecipherable vocals ...view item »

Dead Cross
Dead Cross

Dead Cross (2018, Ipecac), not to be confused with Dead Cross (2017, Ipecac), is the latest headbanging release by Southern California weird hardcore/metal supergroup Dead Cross (2015 - present, Ipecac). They’re Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson ...view item »

Holiday Inn
Torbido

Holiday Inn are one of Rome’s finest synth-punk outfits, and they create music as ferociously DIY and direct as that Xerox-ed cover art. Torbido is real powerhouse stuff, tapping straight into the veins and jolting with wave after wave of pulsing, shouting, pumping energy. Not at all like the chain of budget hotel...view item »

Neurosis
Pain Of Mind

The lords of crust Neurosis return with another reissue from the river-mark. Who here remembers Pain of Mind, a classic of the East Bay scene? It strayed deep out of reality and delved into a thrashy cosmological void where all that could be accessed was growls, screams and groaning musical onslaught, the...view item »

Grave Lines
Fed Into The Nihilist Engine

Grumpy and full of existential humdingers, heavy riffers Grave Lines made these hard-edged doom tunes to explore the deep web of the human psyche. A band that loves to cross the bridge between dissonance and melody, Fed Into the Nihilist Engine is one of those metal albums constantly usurping its dyn...view item »

Deafheaven
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love

Yes, the black metal darlings of Pitchfork are back with their answer to Stereophonics' Language. Sex. Violence. Other?, and thank goodness. They follow up New Bermuda with their first LP for ANTI-, offering a more romantic, smitten sound than ever that we hope will chug at least somewhat. ...view item »

Sleep
The Clarity

At the Southern Lord dinner party a moderately high Greg Anderson cornered the variously high members of Sleep and asked them if they’d make a new record. Amidst five thousand separate stifled yawns, they all agreed to get some riffs and fills on wax, resulting in ‘The Clarity’, a literal nine minutes and fifty one seconds of s...view item »

Sleep
The Sciences

Sleep have been absent from our lives for an incredibly long time -- 2003, at the latest, as it was when the real, good and true version of 'Dopesmoker' came out -- and may be surprised to learn that things have changed. People still love weed, I'll give them that, but like, this is 2018; no one's getting high and listening to stoner metal now t...view item »

House of Kenzo
Bonfires of Urbanity

Have you ever been in a Western-style quick draw? No, neither have I. But, have I got the intro to a record, for you should you wish to experience being in a Western-style quick draw! This is the debut solo release from Dylan Carlson, a founding member of the metal band Earth. It's ...view item »

ElpH vs Coil
Worship The Glitch

More Coil!!! If you like the stuff they do on purpose but feel like you're missing out on their accidents, then this is the release for you. ElpH as it turns out is not another artist, but the name they gave to the spirit causing their equipment to glitch. And on Worship the Glitch, they do just that. ...view item »

Coil presents Black Light District
A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room

More Coil re-issues and this is from 1996 when  Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson and John Balance were joined by Drew McDowall but rather than being the 'poochie' of the show, the new name helped the group take a left turn back to the more avant garde pursuits and experimental electronics. ...view item »

Dark Buddha Rising
II

For the latest LP from Finnish doom-metal crew Dark Buddha Rising, guitarist V.

Anyway, II is sludgy, loping doom par excelle...view item »

Everyone’s favourite Birmingham-based proto-heavy metal gang are entering into a reissue campaign, restoring a host of their records to in-print and on-vinyl status.

Carcass
Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious

After starting off playing full on goregrind and pretty much pioneering the genre, Carcass initially ended their careers in the mid 90s as one of the leading bands of the new melodic death metal genre. 'Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious', the band's third album, saw Carcass venture towards the melodic death metal path they would eventual...view item »

Of Feather and Bone
Bestial Hymns of Perversion

Profound Lore is a versatile label for all them things what dwell in darkness - Dälek’s noisy hip hop rubs shoulders with Merzbow, Prurient, dungeon synth and, of course, more metal than the cast of Transformers. In this case, Denver trio Of Feather and Bone ...view item »

Monster Magnet
Mindfucker

New Jersey rockers Monster Magnet are back in demure form as ever, with their family-friendly tenth album 'Mindfucker'. Jokes, obvs. This record is as savage and raw as you'd expect from the stoner-rock five-piece, with seductive splices of proto-punk, neckbreaking guitar riffs and psych-laced solos....view item »

HIDE
Castration Anxiety

Dais Records give us the first LP of brutalised avant-pop from Chicago’s HIDE. Percussionist Seth Sher and visual artist Heather Gabel have crafted seven tracks of dark, intense industrialism here. The likes of ‘Wildfire’ manage to sound like both ‘Machine Gun’-era Port...view item »
