Memnon Sa
Lemurian Dawn

London-based sonic maven Misha Hering (also known as Among The Bones) makes a stylistic leap with his second album as Memnon Sa, moving on from the doom metal growl of Citadel to embrace a formidable arsenal of analogue synthesisers as the fuel for his wall of sound ruminations. With br...view item »

Silvester Anfang
Sylvester Anfang II

Fuck yeah! I've been waiting for this one; sometime in the last year or two Belgium's Sylvester Anfang morphed Amon Duul-style into Sylvester Anfang II and released a stellar track on a split 7" with chums Burial Hex last year that showcased their evolution into a more classically psychedelic sounding ensemble. I couldn't help but write 'ense...view item »

Sutekh Hexen with Andrew Liles
Breed In Me The Darkness

On being presented with my reviewing pile this morning my face slumped. Lots of very difficult music which I have to pretend to be enthusiastic about. The first of which is this incredibly bleak offering from Sutekh Hexen, two of which are originals, two of which are reimaginings by West Yorkshire-based Andre...view item »


Orphan Swords
License To Desire

Orphan Swords are a Belgian duo who apply their electronics to a mysterious maelstrom of dark’n’noisy post-industrial sound. License To Desire is a three-track EP with a lot of punch to it, containing both Orphan Swords most restrained work to date and some properly snarling noisy stuff. Out...view item »

øjeRum
When Birds Fly, The Eyes Of Heaven Can Rest

øjeRum is a Danish artist with a knack for creating deep-floating drones: the kind that entwine themselves softly around your brain. He’s also responsible for the lovely collage artwork on the sleeve of When Birds Fly, The Eyes Of Heaven Can Rest. Released by the Aurora Borealis label, localised entirely wi...view item »

SEIROM
1973

Ambient, transcendent sounds from a man usually known for his lack metal. SEIROM is M.C. De Jong, and his work on this double album stands opposite his work like Gnaw Their Tongues, not as its direct opponent but approaching similar themes from alternative ends of the spectrum. Metal percussion meets celestial strings. CD and vi...view item »

Jarboe and Helen Money
Jarboe and Helen Money

Jarboe, formerly the eerie female side of Swans, teams up with Helen Money, the go-to avant-cellist of the out-rock underground. Truly, an exciting combo. Certainly this self-titled debut is heavy: Money’s distorted strings are often enormous. But Jarboe h...view item »


USA Out Of Vietnam
Crushing Diseases And Incurable Airplanes

Looks like post-rock is back, just don't call it post-rock. A sticker on the front of this CD says USA Out Of Vietnam "combine elements of psych pop, prog rock and drone pop" but I'd say the main ingredients here are those early-'00s staples, post-rock and post-metal. Is post-rock really such a toxic term now that we dare not speak its name?...view item »

The Haxan Cloak
Observatory

This originally appeared on cassette but thankfully has been given the wax treatment in an edition of just 200 copies. Whoa!!!! This is well bangin'! Steaming straight ahead with booming industrial beats and backwards melodies weaving around the solid drum hits, it's more akin to techno than the post black metal I somehow expected. The track...view item »

Yrsel
Sacrifice

Do you like dark ambient droney type stuff? Well, you've come to the right place then, haven't you? This one here's got people from Ondo and The Austrasian Goat making ominous rumbles that sound like they should be on Utech. Weighty low- and mid-end drones that slowly melt into your subc...view item »

Wolfmangler
Dwelling In A Dead Raven For The Glory Of Crucified Wolves

Doom!!!!!!!! But in a good way if that is possible. Not as heavy and as crushing as Sunn O))) but just as effective, Wolfmangler's latest has to be one of the bleakest and mournful records I've heard in a long while. A slow moving beast, with horns (musically and metaphorically) and an overridin...view item »

Thisquietarmy
Vessels

Eric Quach records under a number of different monikers but he's possibly more famous for Thisquietarmy (now known as TQA for review purposes because my fingers are tired). His music tends to be quite varied as well (the big multi headed beast he is) as he treads from genre to genre like a tip-toeing Canadian doom pixie. This album is kinda doom...view item »

Horse Latitudes
Gathering

Horse Latitudes' Gathering is fairly heavy, slow doom that is reminiscent of Reverend Bizarre and Electric Wizard. For the most part, the vocals are clean, but at times it is buried in the general murk, but they sound epic at the same time, especially on songs like "Seas of Saturn" and the title track. All but one of the songs on Gathering are a...view item »

Burial Hex/Zola Jesus
Split

Zurial Jex and Bola Hesus have done a split LP what's limited to the 500 copies.. I loved the Buriaa Hes album (also on Aurora Borealis) and thought the Zoll Jesux effort on Troubleman was mighty fine so this one seemed an exciting propostition from the off. The side with Burial Hex (to use their non-stupid name) let me down a little bit on ...view item »

Wraiths
Dust In Our Mouths

The credits on the sleeve notes read: Nakir: Shovel & Bier - Gaendall: Coffin & shroud so from that you should gather we're amidst some morbid funeral music which interests me greatly as I seem to have been surrounded by death and bad news this week. The single piece begins with bells and distant howls like a storm is brewing with muted ...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 »
