Melvins
Pinkus Abortion Technician

"BASS, how low can you go" as Chuck D once said, well pretty low when you combine A.) The Melvins stoner sludge rock and B.) two, yes TWO bass players, expect Buzz Osborne's usual brand of Godzilla sized riffs with the addition of Butthole Surfers four stringer Jeff Pinkus and Melvins/Redd Kross/Off! bassist Steven McD...view item »

Ghost
Prequelle

This record promises to delve into even darker (well, I say darker. I mean dark with glitter) territory than their previous records, and looking at the sleeve, I can very well imagine that it does. This record is available on a very limited edition gold coloured vinyl LP with a 7", a slightly less limited edition clear and silver swirl vinyl LP ...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 »

The Boats
Abstraction

The Boats’ Abstraction is pressed to translucent red vinyl, and interestingly packaged alongside some art cards in a transparent sleeve. The music however is far from see-through: instead, Abstraction is a thickly opaque wall of distortion and hammering beats. Limited to 300 copies on Other Ideas....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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Sleep
The Clarity

New music from stoner-metal overlords Sleep! The Clarity was recorded in 2009, a decade after previous release Dopesmoker and seven years before now. Let no-one accuse Sleep of being in a hurry. The Clarity is a thick and chewy slab of sludge, presented on a single side of vinyl, with ...view item »

Dark Buddha Rising
II

For the latest LP from Finnish doom-metal crew Dark Buddha Rising, guitarist V. Ajomo states that the band “have done a full cycle of the orbit and now is the time for gravitational slingshot towards the new dimensions in sound, deliverance and vision". Quite. Anyway, II is sludgy, loping doom par excelle...view item »

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. The album includes a song composed and sung entirely by drummer Brann Dailor who also features on vocals on several other tracks....view item »

Black Sabbath
The Ultimate Collection

A heavy compilation for one of the heaviest bands: 4 full LPs worth of classic Black Sabbath material, spanning all the hits and some of the deeper cuts too. The packaging folds out into a crucifix shape, lovingly decorated by vintage 70’s snaps of our heroes. Heavyweight 180g vinyl too. On BMG....view item »

Henry Blacker
The Making Of Junior Bonner

More Somerset Stoner Sludge from Henry Blacker, the regional offshoot of Hey Colossus. The Making Of Junior Bonner is their third full album to date, and it positively seethes with noisy distortion and ear-bludgeoning riffs. Nine fairly punchy tracks in forty minutes, making for a good-sized portion of ...view item »

Nails
Abandon All Life

This record clocks out after a breathless seventeen minutes, not a single one of them spent idling about. A perfect balance is here struck between the sort of shrieking, close-to-the-brink manic energy of the aforementioned likes of Narcosis (‘Tyrant’, ‘No Surrender’), and an immense capacity for variety in the songcraft....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 »

MØL
JORD

Denmark hasn’t really the reputation of its neighbours in the Nordic metal camp, but there new names do crop up once in a while. Here we have MØL (‘MOTH’) giving it a go. Following two EPs, the debut LP JORD (‘EARTH’) sees the Aarhus quintet going at it hard with the bl...view item »

Nazoranai
The Most Painful Time Happens Only Once Has It Arrived Already..?

Haino Keiji's post Fushitsusha power trio Nazoranai features a rare pedigree with Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley providing gravity on bass and Oren Ambarchi providing rhythmic propulsion behind the kit. Meanwhile, Haino-san is a law unto himself, unleashing a wall of hallucinatory, otherworldy guitar scree. This document of their live performance ...view item »

Wrong
Feel Great

The second Wrong LP to get the Relapse seal of approval seems to have been titled in jest. Feel Great consists of music you wouldn’t usually associate with feeling great. The Miami group’s abrasive noise-metal is the sort of stuff you’d use to exorcise demons or purge bad spirits. It&r...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. Vinyl and CD versions contain a 2016 Warsaw concert featuring The Satanist performed in its entirely along with a further six tracks. The CD is accompanied b...view item »

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 »

Shadows
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. Here they explore freeform electronic explorations all smudgy and smeared with detritus. It's bloody ugly but that's what you are here for right?  ...view item »

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.

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 »

Metallica
Ride The Lightning

This reissued record from Metallica should need no introduction if you are in any way interested in thrash metal. The 1984 second album from these rifftastic pioneers, Ride The Lightning, is as ferocious as anything they ever recorded, and is now available again on vinyl, fully remastered. On Virgin....view item »

Satan's Satyrs
Wild Beyond Belief

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. Opener 'Polaris' ess...view item »

Baroness
Red Album

‘Red Album’ provides an escape from your usual everyday metal, and takes the genre in a new direction. Chugging yet progressive and sludgy yet soft, ‘Red Album’ is a fantastic debut, and has the perfect touch of sludge, progressive, and post metal elements into each of its eleven tracks. Their albums since then have taken...view item »

Skullflower
Werecats Powers Of The Crossroads At Midnight

Skullflower take many shapes, be it gruelling noise rock or their own (slightly more tasteful) take on power electronics.

Fret
Over Depth

To say that the legendary Mick Harris (Lull, Quoit, The Weakener, Monrella, Painkiller, Napalm Death etc.) is back with a bang after Scorn takes a well deserved kip would be an understatement. Prior to 'Over Depth' there was a single Fret 12" released in 1995 on a Downwards offshoot label, and then nothing. Now he returns to the alias, full-forc...view item »

Green Druid
Ashen Blood

The Earache label are rightly proud of having brought the sound of Sleep to the world and now they seem equally excited to be releasing Ashen Blood, the debut album by Denver, Colorado doom merchants Green Druid.

Orchestra Of Constant Distress
Distress Test

Orchestra Of Constant Distress offer up a tantalising proposition: stasis, entropry, and dynamic-free noise. Mmmm, yummy. And yet, if you know the artists involved (who hail from groups lie The Skull Defekts, Union Carbide Productions and even Brainbombs(!)), you’ll be bou...view item »

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper

Ramleh
A Return To Slavery

Here’s some real nasty old industrial noise / power electronics from 1983, one of the earliest releases on the Broken Flag label. Ramleh’s A Return To Slavery is full of inhuman howling and harsh frequencies, just the way you like it. As the original record was a split, this reissue fills in the other side w...view item »

Monster Magnet
Mindfucker

New Jersey rockers Monster Magnet are back in demure form as ever, with their family-friendly tenth album 'Mindfucker'.

Keiji Haino & SUMAC
American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On

Those boys in SUMAC must have been delighted when this opportunity came up: an album with the grand master Keiji Haino! The band, who are already kind of a alt-metal supergroup (members of Isis, Russian Circles and Baptists), coalesced around the ferocity of ...view item »

Chris Corsano / Massimo Pupillo
Via Combusta

Those in the know will immediately identify this as a premium slice of heavy-hitting improvisation: how could it fail to be with this personnel?

The Ocean
Precambrian (10th Anniversary Edition)

Seriously the best album ever made. Thematically superb and conceptually brilliant, the lyrics are spot on, the best packaging you'll ever see and most importantly the instrumentation is almost disturbingly good.

Arabrot

New record from heavy adventurers Arabrot. The Gospel follows Kjetil Nernes’ recovery from throat cancer, so it is understandably thoughtful about mortality.

...And Justice For All was the fourth album by Metallica, originally released in 1988.

Ufomammut
Eve

Ufomammut have chosen a name that suits them more than perfectly. As you all know, UFO means unidentified flying object and mammut means mammoth in Italian.

It very much resembles them in s...view item »

Nick Klein is worried. Worried and anxious about living in New York at a time of such unstable political and social disharmony.

Don't know why I grabbed the latest transmission from uber-dark noise puppy Dominick Fearn Cotton? NO!

Mastodon

Hey, I admit it. I'm not the biggest Mastadon fan out there. I enjoy their music. I think they've got a manic man on the drums and their guitarists are on speed.

Head For The Shallow

Reissue of the Seattle duo’s debut, originally on Hydra Head in 2004. The pair hit on a simple but immediately agreeable formula - bombastically heavy and fiercely rockin’ songs brought to life by the powerful but nuanced drumming of Coady Willis and Jared Warren’s fuzzed-up ba...view item »

Here Come The Waterworks

Here Come the Waterworks blew me away with its thick bass, sporadic drumming, and deep vocals. Big business create a sound of their own, however you catch familiar influences throughout the album.

'Freakshow' is an apt title for the opening cut on this double 10" set. When I first heard this tune I wasn't so sure about it, it sounded kinda chaotic and messy but Danny Brown is pretty intense so it took a couple listens to get my head round it. The Bug is in usual savage form dr...view item »
