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 »

Entombed
Wolverine Blues

With Wolverine Blues, Entombed made their most solid, unconditionally riff-loaded and groove-based release to date, but at the same time, they were subject to accusations of selling out from the death metal masses that had previously hailed them. Why? It was mainly because the gothic and melodic sounds the band had previously performed a...view item »

Napalm Death
Utopia Banished

Utopia Banished might not be a magnum opus, but it is a darn fine and highly enjoyable album, nonetheless, from one of extreme metal's most consistent bands. Thus, it should satisfy just about all fans of either death or grind. And if music that hits like a shotgun blast to the chest makes you feel all tingly, this beast ought to be a just about...view item »

Mastodon
Crack The Skye

If you can get over the voice of the lead vocalist, it's a lot easier to enjoy this album. Mastodon's fourth album was the first I've ever listened to, so again, the expectations were not there at all.I was impressed though, some really catchy songs on this album have really converted me into a fan. I first side of the vinyl LP is one of the bes...view item »

Entombed
Left Hand Path

Left Hand Path, the debut album by Entombed, mixed the relentless aggression and riffage of floridian death metal with a healthy dose of groove and a bit of experimentalism. The dark, macabre album cover perfectly foreshadows the music that's to come. The opening title track perfectly encapsulates the whole album, with its sinister keyboard stra...view item »

Mastodon
The Hunter

‘The Hunter’ is US stoner rock band Mastodon's first non concept album since ‘Remission’ (2002). It contains no elements of classical music and is pure, heavy rock.

Throbbing Gristle
20 Jazz Funk Greats

This 1979 masterpiece is probably the most well known LP in the TG catalogue. Probably due to the cheeky title and iconic cover art. Such a pretty location for one of the worlds most popular suicide spots - Beachy Head. The irony of the cover shot was made clearer by a later issue of the album...view item »

Spotlights

Melvins
Pinkus Abortion Technician

Being a Melvins fan for well over half of my life on this planet, despite the fact that recent albums have less than blown me away, I always check what they’re up to. Having done the two drummers thing, this time around they have two bass players on this record. Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, ...view item »

Henry Blacker
The Making Of Junior Bonner

Sludge is sometimes dressed up hard rock. This is one of those times but in a good way; Henry Blacker, a regional offshoot of Hey Colossus, initially started as a way of exorcising some of their doom demons away from home (stuck in Somerset, not London -- you know the drill), and now have their third record of ...view item »

Merzbow
Kakapo

Despite the fact that Masami Akita’s discography would take you a full lifetime to imbibe, slabs of Merzbow wax don’t actually come around that often. It’s been a wee while since his last solo outing on vinyl, so this is an occasion if you like your Merzbow fix vi...view item »

Om
Pilgrimage

I've just been to take the washing out of the tumble dryer and completely forgotten what I was supposed to be doing. All I could think of was the latest masterpiece from Om: 'Pilgrimage'. I'm now playing this CD for the 7th time. It's difficult to recall ever revisiting an album so frequently in such a small amount of time....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 »

Mastodon

MØL

Sunn O)))

Enrique
Gag-Me

Brooklyn upstarts BANK Records (E Sagilla, Via App) drop this limited-edition 7” from Enrique. The two tracks of Gag-Me can only be aptly described as industrial downtempo, if you are able to imagine such a thing. ‘Gag-Me’ and ‘Concrete Shoes&rsq...view item »

Wrong
Feel Great

Relapse supergroup hour! At this point in history you kinda just have to accept that every noisy band is prepared to team up with another one to create the biggest, baddest churn, but I’m still over the moon about Wrong, which combines Torche, Capsule and Kylesa members together into one crusty championship of disdain. The hilariously name...view item »

Behemoth
Messe Noire

The Polish black / death metallers aren’t ones to do things by halves. That’s certainly true of their acclaimed 2014 opus The Satanist, and also of this related live collection.

Bruce Gilbert
Ex Nihilo

Editions Mego mark their 250th release with a regular contributor to the label - ex-Wire / Dome member Bruce Gilbert. Ex Nihilo encapsulates his signature sonics - harsh, austere, sculptural aural brutalism, hacked into a variety of abstract and alien shapes. The fact that the a...view item »

Particles Of Life

Ok so this is not the sometime Cliff Richard fronted guitar twangers but instead a duo of of Andrew Bowen & Dimitri Ploumpidis who also play hard techno as AnD.

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 »

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 »


Tokyo Flashback

Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow.

Bruxa Maria / Casual Nun

The Thundering Heard (Songs Of Hoof And Horn)

Doom-laden blues duo Eagle Twin are back with their long-awaited third album, out on 30 March on Southern Lord.

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 »

Shit & Shine
That’s Enough

It’s easy to consider Austin's Shit & Shine as spiritual descendants of near neighbours Butthole Surfers, but it’s a valid comparison in the best possible sense, capturing their unpredictability, abrasiveness, and a giddy humour undercut by subtle malevolence. This indie-only 12”, limi...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 »

Electric Wizard
Dopethrone

Dopethrone is considered a genre defining classic (stoner, sludge or some kind of equally esoteric metal sub-field - I wouldn't call in "doom" in the same vein of early Anathema or My Dying Bride though) so I got it upon recommendation from the bass player in my band. There are ...view item »

Bong
Stoner Rock

To be so audacious as to name it 'Stoner Rock' you know that Bong mean business with this new album, and indeed this latest from the prolific stoner-doom ritualists is indeed a dense and powerful concoction, with its two tracks spanning a mammoth 70 minutes of slow, pummelling dirge-riffing and sludgy dronebuzz atmospherics.

Baroness
Red Album

‘Red Album’ provides an escape from your usual everyday metal, and takes the genre in a new direction.
