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 »

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 »

Vitamin X
Age Of Paranoia

So many bands, trends and scenes have come and gone since Vitamin X first surfaced in the late-90s, but somehow the Amsterdam punx have managed to outlast them all. This is probably something to do with an ever-burning fire in their bellies - Age Of Paranoia’s lead single ‘Modern Man’ contains the spun...view item »

Sunn O)))
Kannon

Drone wall guardians Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson may be the most consistent, recognisable band ever by now, but their sound has gone through a lot: they’ve gone swimming in beautiful ambient pastures with Boris, twisted avant-garde into comedy with Scott Walker, and even reci...view item »

Eagle Twin
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. This is a commanding record, weaving together rumbling vocals—courtesy of Gentry Densley—sky-scraping guitar riffs and powerfully dynamic beats, with nods to classic folklore and searing storytelling....view item »

Scream
NMC17

Scream’s seminal 1988 LP No More Censorship gets the reissue treatment courtesy of Southern Lord (Earth, Goatsnake). The group’s first album to feature Dave Grohl - on drums, fortunately - NMC17 is as vital a snapshot into the 1980s...view item »

MAGMA
Retrospektïẁ

In the world of Zeuhl gods Magma, things tend to occur on a large scale, and that’s certainly the case with this remastered Southern Lord boxset. The three volumes of Retrospektïẁ captured a trio of 1980 concerts at the Olympia in Paris. We begin with the debut appearance of Th...view item »

Sunn O)))
Black One

Here we have a reissue of one of the classic Sunn O))) albums, on which the cowled duo set out to go as dark as they possibly could. To this effect, Black One features guest appearances from Oren Ambarchi, John Weise, Wrest and Malefic: the latter was l...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 »

Today Is The Day
Animal Mother

Today Is The Day are noise rock aficionados who pay as much tribute to sludgy, sprawling metal as they do to lightning fast, thunder thrashing grindcore. 'Animal Mother' is their tenth record, and to mark that milestone they've made the very wise decision to join with heavy music overseers Southern Lord. Lots of little things to note about the r...view item »

Friendship
Hatred

There's always something different about heavy Japanese bands. There's a mystery and ease of approach that makes Corrupted, for example, hold such significance. Friendship, though fuelled by blast beats and grindcore bludgeoning, hold the same esteem and with a home on Southern Lord, are a punishing and unrelent...view item »

All Pigs Must Die
Hostage Animal

All Pigs Must Die are a ferocious heavy ensemble that features members of bands as notable as Converge, Bloodhorse, and The Hope Conspiracy. Hostage Animal is their newest statement of bleak fury, packed full of metal riffs and crusty hardcore punk punch. Ten tracks and...view item »

Unsane
Sterilize

Not really sure how we missed this one. I’ll go ahead and say it: it’s foolhardiness on our part, considering headache rockers Unsane are fond favourites amongst the lovers of loud in our office. Going slow through the post-90s decades with records coming every five years or so, ‘Sterilize’ follows on from the old-school ...view item »

BIG | BRAVE
Au De La

No one is more about self-seriousness than I here at Jeremy Normyn Records, and so I have naturally found a certain kinship with ‘Au De La’. Made by the now almost prolific BIG BRAVE -- who have worked their way through an EP, a debut LP plus this one in a wizard three years -- this record switches between tense but not taunting nois...view item »

BIG | BRAVE
Ardor

Montreal based three piece return to Southern Lord for their third album. With three tracks spanning 40 minutes they go the whole hog in post-rock experimentation from huge domineering heaviness to abstract and delicate. This time with guest in the form of members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion Memor...view item »

Sunn O)))
White 1

Sunn O)))'s first few albums were simply pure drone, but like many bands, you get bored of playing the same sort of stuff again and again, so Sunn O))) started getting more experimental with 'White1', an album that may be drone in nature, but its experimental qualities are interwoven between three completely different tracks. The opener ...view item »

Circle
Terminal

You can count on Finland’s Circle to provide the goods, always pulling together the finest and weirdest bits of rock etc. history into their (surprisingly cohesive) whole. Terminal is full of proggy flair, krautrock space-power, psychedelic flavour, heavy metal heft and much else besides, making for a dense and wo...view item »

Lifesick
6.0.1.

Lifesick is a new band made up of former members of Spinkick. That band wasn’t exactly lightweight (they tended to sound like they were charging towards you in order to kick your head in), but Lifesick is an even more blackened and ferocious hardcore prospect. 6.0.1. is released b...view item »

Lies
Plague

Brutalist bludgeoning hardcore from a group that features members of The Hope Conspiracy and Skin Like Iron. No time is wasted here: Lies pummel their way through Plague’s allotted 8 tracks so fast that the whole album fits onto one side of vinyl: the B-side is taken up with an et...view item »

Okkultokrati
Raspberry Dawn

Hard to pin this one down apart from to note that it is well heavy… Okkultokrati have hard rock at their core, but with plenty of influence from punk, post-punk, metal and black metal. New album Raspberry Dawn even finds them adding a synth player into the mix, for even wider possibilities! Dark forest music on S...view item »

Hissing
Hissing

With a self released demo and self titled EP under their belt, Southern Lord have snapped Hissing up for a follow up EP. 2 tracks of disturbing sludge encrusted death metal, capturing elements of Swams, Winter and Incantation. And with the guitarist (Joe O’Malley...view item »

Sunn O)))
Domkirke

This ever-so-slightly special entry in the Sunn O))) kanon sees the band lathering their drone all over the Bergen Cathedral, extending to us a few mysteries beyond the evil wizard robes and metal hand gestures. In spite of the album’s typical Sunn grandiosity, it’s those opening seconds that are disorientating. They offer us, of all...view item »

Pelican
What We All Come To Need

Coming at a time when Pelican had made the switcheroo between heavy rawker labels Hydra Head and Southern Lord, ‘What We All Come To Need’ sums up why the band were good for both labels: an emotive, freefalling post-metal band with the self-seriousness of the best Isis records, the band could just as easily...view item »

Black Breath
Slaves Beyond Death

Black Breath have a furious flail of death metal to show to you. Slaves Beyond Death (could they BE any more metal?) is their third record, and the band are proud to be even more unpleasant-sounding than ever on this one. ‘Putrid’, ‘rotting’, and ‘bile’ according to the press release....view item »

Goatsnake
Black Age Blues

Available as Gatefold 2LP (LP contains two exclusive tracks) or CD on Southern Lord. Ooooof! First album in fifteen years. With original members Greg Anderson (Sunn O)))), Pete Stahl (Scream), and Greg Rogers (The Obsessed) joined by new bassist...view item »

Warhorse
As Heaven Turns To Ash

Not the film to educate teenage girls about the First World War through the medium of horses, but Warhorse, epic doom metal band from Massachusetts. Reissued after 14 years and now on vinyl for the purists, this LP of the album As Heaven Turns to Ash also contains their last song, I am Dying. Double vinyl, gatefold sleeve, on So...view item »

Xibalba
Tierra Y Libertad

Excuse me, are those tanks roaring through a landscape strewn with Mayan temples on the album cover? Yes, yes they are. And those are indeed bionic soldiers firing at each other. No, it’s just the album cover of Terria Y Libertad of Californian death metalheads Xibalba. The album title refers to the slogan of the ...view item »

Torch Runner
Endless Nothing

Crusty old punks Torch Runner pop up again on Southern Lord for their new record, 'Endless Nights'. It's the follow-up to their debut, 'Commited To the Ground', and shows off the same metallic grindcore sound, aiming to be even more chaotic. Torch Runner are giving the most unforgiving and impenetrable hardore acts a run for their money, cr...view item »

Gust
Gust

Here, on Southern Lord, we have an album of catchy metallic riffs, furious lyrical angst all shot through with classic hardcore-influenced directness. The four piece band recorded the album themselves at the charmingly titled Fvck Life studios and have created an angry, politically-aware album, the blitzkreig assaut will appeal to fans of C...view item »

Obliterations
Poison Everything

This crust punk invention comes from a variety of different bands, including the more psychedelic Black Mountain and Night Horses. Influenced by more straight-up hardcore acts, from the stalwarts Poison Idea to the once canonized Black Flag, Obliterations take us back to when chaotic punk rock was old-school. 'Poison Everything' is for blasting ...view item »

Excel
Split Image

A band rather than a Microsoft Office computer app, Excel were crossover punks and/or metalheads who started out in the 80s and released three records -- 'Split Image' is the first, originally recorded in 1983. Excel were raucous, identifying the must chaotic elements of both genres they were interested in, but also self-serious, with ...view item »

Martyrdod
Elddop

Sweden’s d-beat crust gods, MARTYRDÖD, return with their second full-length for Southern Lord. Once again they entered the infamous Studio Fredman (At The Gates, Amon Amarth, Opeth) to record their new full-length, entitled Elddop, the crushing follow-up to 2012’s Paranoia LP. ...view item »

Bl'ast
The Expression Of Power

Bl'ast are one of the few pioneering '80s hardcore bands who have continued through to the present day without becoming slightly embarrassing or going insane. I guess they've earned this incredibly thorough reissue of their iconic debut LP 'The Power of Expression'. One thing I didn't realise about this album was that it was actually recorded th...view item »

Sunn O))) & Ulver
Terrestrials

I'm coming to the home stretch of this week's review marathon and running out of time so I have to make the frankly jarring aesthetic leap from the earnest '80s tweepop of Helen and the Horns straight over to this slow-burning slab of theatrical dirgery from Sunn O))) and Ulver. Thankfully this is one of the records where you already know what i...view item »

A Storm Of Light
Nations To Flames

Cruel sonic doomers A Storm of Light continue to drop their music from great heights onto the unsuspecting mass of people underfoot. Nations To Flames has a couple of most metal features on it, with Neurosis' Josh Graha and Kim Thayil from Soundgarden. A no...view item »

The Secret
Agnus Dei

Vicious, unrelenting, and cathartic. The sonic equivalent of snorting a line of gunpowder and then flying a tank into the Vatican....view item »

High On Fire
The Art Of Self Defense

From the crumpled remains of an hour plus long doom/stoner masterstroke crawls Matt Pike. A love child of Tony Iommi and Lemmy Kilmister with no tolerance for hip-hop sensibilities, mall grooves, or memorable guitar solos, but he plays them anyway because only solos are real. "The Art of Self Defense" is not only a great excuse to dig out a high...view item »

Pelican
Ataraxia / Taraxis

Pelican is a post-metal band in the vein of Isis and Scale the Summit that holds down its airy atmosphere with some sludgy guitars in this short four-track EP. The big meaty growling of the guitars is lent memorable varying rhythms and though you might not be compelled to perk up your ears through every second of each song, every progression amb...view item »

Loincloth
Iron Balls Of Steel

Following the demise of Confessor comes forth Loincloth. Insane technical rhythms that will drive you out of your mind. Instrumental heaviness of short songs. If you dig Confessor, Gore or even The Melvins, you must pick this up. The perfect soundtrack for cold and dark winter mornings. I cannot believe that I missed this little gem of a 90’s ban...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 »
