Boris
Attention Please

Boris, who are well known as masters of the heavier-than-you-think-possible guitar-noise genre, are forced out of their comfort zone, quite probably by vocalist Wata's desire to branch out. As in breathy ballads and atmospherically shifting soundstages and 12-string guitars. This is a moody mostly-electric masterpiece. For the very small proport...view item »

Cousins Of Reggae
Disuelvos Ensangrentados, Inhalantes Perdidos

Oh yeah I totally dug that Mouthus/Cousins of Reggae split LP from ages ago on OESB so I'm buzzing to announce that those tracks are now available on CD in all their discordant spuzzed-out clattering glory. Those tracks however only make up the first 5 of 14 mind-warping cortex-melters that comprise the 'Disuelvos Ensangrentados, Inhalantes Perdido...view item »

Coliseum
Parasites

For an EP's worth of material, this is as diverse and lengthy an offering as you're likely to find. If you aren't familiar with Coliseum, it's a tough band to describe, as they tend to not pigeonhole themselves. Are they punk? Sure. Are they hardcore? A little. The confidence exuding from the curveball awesomeness of "Ghost of God", "The Fiery E...view item »

Garrincha And The Stolen Elk
Void

Christ, this is a tricky record to pin down. Apparently Davy Bui and Matt Kretzmann have been making music together for a decade or so now, but this is their first album together. It seems to be a mix of live instruments and manipulated noise and found sounds. It's pretty minimal, but not exactly a comfortable listen, with weird slowed-down ...view item »

Lord Foul
Killing Raping Burning / The Devil’s Advocate

Lord Foul was a one-man hate machine operating out of Louisville, Kentucky in the early '90s, and this LP collects both his two demo tapes onto one side of vinyl, with the other side taken up by what I can only describe as a phenomenally shit etching (weirdly enough designed by the same guy who drew the totally sweet foil-stamped cover desig...view item »

Ramesses
Possessed By The Rise Of Magik

Ramesses mixes up a effervescent slab of sludge death/doom with their third full-length, Possessed by the Rise of Magik. This is the sort of heavy metal that can take the calm air in a room and immediately suck the life from it in short time. A few seconds into “Invisible Ritual”, and it does just that and from that point on, there's...view item »

Daniel Menche & Anla Courtis
Yagua Ovy

I'm way into a lot of the sounds that these guys create but as far as I'm aware this is actually their first collaboration. From the moment the needle hits the weapons-grade heavy vinyl we are treated to strange scraping cyclic sounds like a load of twigs have been bundled and stuffed into a washing machine and then proceed to snap and crunch as...view item »

Colour of Fire
A Pearl Necklace For Her Majesty

Speaking of grey here comes Colour of Fire (no of course fire isn't grey  - is it?). Colour of Fire do a brand of shouty emo rock that fits in with the Lamacq grey slabs of dullard rock but this is slightly off kilter and well produced. There's lots of heavy riffing and people getting very angry on the mic. Decent noisy, a...view item »

martiensgohome
MGH Plays Ulver

More industrial-tinged sound art & drone for you kiddies. Both tracks here are inspired by Ulver; bleak avant-rockers from Norway. I'm not sure what to say about this apart from the fact it's shrouded in a blackly evil veil and spits sonic acid at you at regular intervals whilst screeing, grumbling & hissing frequencies disturb & dis...view item »

Sword Heaven
Gone

I loved the 'Entrance' record this duo did on Load a few years back so landing this one is quite the score. From the moment you hit the ignition you're in for one hell of a messy ride. It sounds like a T-Rex is playing drums, smashing away while shrieks of a tortured one howl in sorrow and pain. 'Dead End' is a monolithic slab of primal heav...view item »

C. Spencer Yeh & Jon Wesseltoft
Northern Resonance III/II

I wonder what would happen if C Spencer Yeh joined Does it Offend You, Yeah. Would it result in a big resounding NO? Or would it be a panting dog-esque yehYEAH!!!! My mind resembles a flattened field of sleepy mudge today, so please do excuse me. I've left this particular avant-drone record on at a reasonable volume so Business Lady can fully re...view item »

Batillus/ Hallowed Butchery
Split

Ok, this one's a heavy mofo. A split between Batillus and Hallowed Butchery, both of which i have never heard before but am suitably impressed by one first listen. Batillus kick things of with an impressive display of power and might. I guess this is predominantly doom type slow-core stuff but with the dynamic of a much faster, livelier band alo...view item »

Horseback
The Invisible Mountain

The Invisible Mountain is a CD by Horseback, released by Utech in an edition of 500. I've got to say that I'm mightily impressed with this one's bassy darkness from the off, as its mantric grooves immediately bring to mind a more full-on, aggressive Om with added chiming guitar arpeggios and black metal vocals.. Three of the four tracks are imbue...view item »

Snog
The Last Days of Rome

Last time I heard anything on the Hymen label it was mental electronica/ breakcore gear. So when I banged this Snog CD on imagine my surprise when it sounded like a cross between Faith No More and Nine Inch Nails.... Still I've always been a fan of their artwork and they're called Snog which carries some weight. The features 1 track extra and 5 fur...view item »

Goatsnake
Flower Of Disease

An overdue reissue of a long out-of-print favourite! A perfectly-formed album of sludgy, doomy, riffy, Sabbathy rockers that's as heavy is it is ridiculous (and it's definitely pretty ridiculous). The title track is a thing of glorious, chugging beauty and the rest ain't bad either. I remember around the time this album came out they played a sh...view item »

Menace Ruine
Union Of Irreconcilables

If you could put together the sounds of Nadja and Merzbow with a tiny hint of black metal, then you have Menace Ruine. The seven tracks that make up 'Union Of Irreconcilables' are abrasive and often screeching slabs of sound, but unlike many drone/noise bands, this is perversely an album ...view item »

Panicsville
A Dragonfly For Each Corpse

Chicago noise polluters Panicsville have been on the fringes of the confrontational theatre circuit for years now, dressing up in latex and throwing shit at their audiences, kind of a bit like Gwar or something but with better sounds. This lovingly packaged LP & 7" set is not what I was expecting. Unsettling indeed but not a barrage of squ...view item »

Burning Star Core
Papercuts Theater

And now I'm thoroughly expected to have my face melted off by Burning Star Core. Never really heard much by these guys before but I thought now is the time! This is an interesting concept for an album and not one I've heard of before. It's (to quote the press releases) 'One long piece, broken into 4 movements, culled from over 60 live performance...view item »

L'Acephale
Malefeasance

BLARGHOWNYAGGIWGOWGOSGUYUURRGH! Ant and Phil have just been talking about the most painful things that've ever happened to them and Malfeasance by l'Acephale was the album wot got them going. I don't want to hear about bad things happening to good feet anymore, I'd rather listen to this horrifically ace combination of black metal, power electronics...view item »

Sleep
Dopesmoker

I'm genuinely not really sure what I'm supposed to tell you about Dopesmoker that you don't already know. Sleep's magnum opus was recorded way back in the mid-'90s with me...view item »

White Out (with Spencer Yeh and Carlos Giffoni)
Live at No Fun

White Out are an improvising duo who use percussion, electronics and voice to map out new sonic territory. Often they are (relatively) quiet and exploratory, but this performance from New York’s No Fun noise-fest sees them dragged into noise-blast territory by one-time collaborators C. Spencer Yeh and ...view item »

Laudanum
Decades

Laudanum have a new CD out on the lovely Monopsone label of France (previously released stuff by Epic 45, AKA, Below The Sea, Piano Magic, Klima, Schengen, Velma etc..) You can see they're a decent label with strong heritage of decent releases. You should totally check down the AKA S/T CD they released back in 2001... Brian and me go crazy for that...view item »

Sunn O)))
Monoliths and 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 pretty great ac...view item »

Alkerdeel
Luizig

Alkerdeel: Luizig (At War With False noise) CD. Originally released on cassette, this doom mongering miasma of gut wrenching thrash/noise owes a debt to early Melvins I'm told. Think dark dark depths and guttural yelps, flailing drums and mangled guitar shapes. One for the mosh pit if you get down like that! ...view item »

Wino
Punctuated Equilibrium

When I first heard "Release Me" I must say I was a little worried. It was included on a sampler I received and it didn't really grab me - luckily it's grown on me. If you're looking for Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan or The Hidden Hand then you will be disappointed. But if you're looking for signature Wino then you won't be disappoint...view item »

Heliotaxis
From Being to Annihilation

Cool little CD here on Dirty Demos, packaged in a felt tigerprint jacket thing. On From Being to Annihilation Heliotaxis remind me a fair bit of Heavy Winged, having that same clanging, lo-fi improv jam thing going on. It sounds like it was recorded in a toilet and mixed by a man with mirrors where his ears should be.. That's a good thing in this...view item »

Velvet Cacoon
Genevieve

Velvet Cacoon play their own unique brand of black metal influenced music. The music is usually fast and hypnotic backed by drums that move like a racing heartbeat. When it isn't going fast, the music slows down to a sigh and ventures into clear channel bliss like the speed of fog. The production sounds like it was recorded in a giant tank of wa...view item »

Laibach
Volk

Another great view into Laibach's controversial mind. Skipping the euphemisms for now the blatant way of pointing out other countries problems by hitting them where it hurts while supporting the NSK. This album takes the the national anthems of several countries and "pokes fun" at them. A much different sound than most of Laibach's music. Rathe...view item »

3 Inches Of Blood
Advance And Vanquish

3 Inches of Blood are about as self-consciously `old-school' as any modern North American metal band that you're likely to find. In fact, they're so Maiden and Priest-esque that some have supposed them to be parody. They say they aren't, and either way, they rock like hell if you're into this sorta thing. On the down side, all of their songs on Adv...view item »

Melvins
The Maggot

This release is packed with what the Melvins are quite adept at: Variety. From the chilled zen of the Fleetwood Mac cover "The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)" to the scraping bray of "Manky", no two songs are indistinguishable from each other. All the previously mentioned tracks are highlights, and are equally as powerful as less f...view item »

R>R> Metal
Freakshow Punk EP

Here's a thing from Dazed Gauntlet HQ have arrived on out doorstep this morn. It's a 3" CD by R>R> Metal who make what can only be described as avant garde electronic music. Wierd samples, cut up stuff, some melodies and some random bits of noise chucked in for good measure. Freakshow...view item »

Wilt
My Medicine

This is the Irish REM/Jimmy Eat World alikes second album and while it has some great poppy moments it just isn't consistent enough. This band will always write a great chorus and after the first two songs you think you're in for a great ride. However it's all a bit downhill and the...view item »

Melvins
The Bootlicker

One of The Melvins' better and weirder albums but the psych influence tends to be exaggerated (not nearly as psychedelic as I was expecting) and though part of the point of this album is they're consciously not going balls out with the rockage, I can't help waiting for the music to explode into sonic fury and it never does. It mostly produces an...view item »
