A Pale Horse Named Death - And Hell Will Follow Me 2xLP Vinyl

A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH is the Gothic Doom Metal brainchild of Brooklyn, NY native Sal Abruscato...

Sal’s partner in crime on “And Hell Will Follow Me” is Matt Brown, sound engineer extraordinaire and guitarist of fellow NY band SEVENTH VOID. “The chemistry between me and Matt is unique and flawless very rare in today´s music. We are the murdering evil version of Lennon and McCartney.” says Abruscato.

Brown adds, “Sal asked me if I would help to take these songs to the next level. I took on this project for my friend, to find some closure in rough times. The music is just an extension of our friendship and our passion for creativity.”

The album artwork was done by Sam Shearon aka Mr. Sam, who has previously done work for Rob Zombie, Fear Factory and Cradle of Filth to name a few, and features a 20 page booklet with artwork for each individual song. Additionally, the Double LP version will feature a never before heard bonus track called “Pick Up Truck”.

To top that all off, Life of Agony’s Keith Caputo lent background vocals to four tracks and Lou Reed’s saxophonist Ulrich Krieger guests on “Die Alone”. Bobby Hambel from Biohazard - who also plays with the band live - played the guitar leads on three tunes.

APHND is also a force to be reckoned with live, with shows and festivals already planned in both the U.S. and Europe. Alongside Sal, Matt and Bobby, the live line-up places Type O and Seventh Void drummer Johnny Kelly behind the kit, and Eric Morgan on bass.

“This is my pinnacle creation, the best album I have ever done.” commented Sal. And after listening, most people are tending to agree.

Blood Ceremony - Self Titled Vinyl LP

Blood Ceremony plays a distinctive brand of flute-tinged witch rock. Early on, their sound revealed an infernal marriage of Black Sabbath and the manic piping of Jethro Tull. Eschewing the affectations of modern rock music, Blood Ceremony keeps it simple and heavy; yet their songs are tempered with strong, brooding melodies. This effect is enhanced by their use of the flute; an instrument once prevalent in progressive rock, but which is uncommon in today’s scene. Invoking the mischievous “Pipes of Pan,” Blood Ceremony songs are distinguished by singer Alia O’Brien’s energetic jazz-flute solos – accenting an instrument long-associated with a list of devilish mythic characters.

Crowbar - Sever The Wicked Hand 2xLP Vinyl

Crowbar is of course a legendary band from the swamps of Louisiana. This is their first album since 2005 and features most of the things you would expect from a Crowbar release. Crowbar is the baby of Kirk Windstein, who uses the band as a vehicle for expressing his own personal struggles and hardships, in particular with this album, his ongoing attempt at sobriety.

Windstein's sludgy, doom-laden riffs are of course the main highlight in any Crowbar album. His Sabbathian riffs are extremely distorted and down-tuned and they twist and writhe along with the pounding rhythms. The rest of the instrumentation is impressive as well, but let's be honest here, this is Windstein's show at this point. The other musicians are just along for the ride.

The lyrical theme of the album is, as I mentioned, Windstein becoming sober. Even the cover art and title of the album allude to it. Windstein has a gift for writing heart-wrenching and somber songs and he takes full advantage of it with the tracks "Liquid Sky and Cold Black Earth" and "Let Me Mourn".

This is a powerfully emotional album. It's often slow, but oppressively heavy. Windstein has done a lot of work with other bands, such as Down and Kingdom of Sorrow, but he always saves some of his best work for Crowbar. This is an early frontrunner for Album of the Year. ---Shadoeking, Metal-Archives

Cuzo - Otros Mundos Vinyl LP

Last year their debut album called ‘Amor y Muerte En La Tercera Fase’ was released and it was obvious at that time this band was able to do remarkable things. ‘Amor y Muerte […]’ might be called a proggy take on “stoner” or “spacerock”, the sophomore effort ‘Otros Mundos’ represents a radical shift towards obscure seventies avant-garde – without losing sight of the heavy roots. Cuzo manages to steer through the cliffs of doom, psychedelica, krautrock, prog and avant-garde and by doing so creates a very good, albeit short cd that will have music lovers shout out: “hey, this sounds just like…” all the time.

A large part of rock’s history is compressed in little more than half an hour, during which there is ample room for officially recognized difficult music as made by old avant-garde heroes such as Captain Beefheart, Magma and even – for those who want to heart it – the Residents. It is obvious that this is not easy listening. Nevertheless, all the strange rhythms and unusual melodies do not stop Cuzo from rocking. At one moment it is heavy fuzzing spacerock, like in ‘Astroratas’, in the next song ‘Del Más Allá’ it sounds as if a bunch of whales have accidentally swum into the studio. The large idea density and the multitude of different styles interchanging within the rock paradigm make ‘Otros Mundos’ a rather hermetic record. Two out of the three band members have a history in a doom metal band and it is probably the reason why this extremely complex and arty sounding music rocks so much.---Lords of metal

Cuzo - Amor y Muerte en la Tercera Fase Vinyl LP

7 tracks of 100% instrumental 70's style psyche and stoner rock! Features members of Warchetype and 12Tewelve. For fans of Zombi, Earthless and Massatus.

"On Amor Y Muerte En La Tercera Fase, the instrumental three-piece tries to bridge the gap between rock music and movie soundtracks by laying ambiance on top of rolling riffs and jazz-like playing. Think Stinking Lizaveta meets Zombi, without the keyboards, and you're on the right track." ---Arzgarth StonerRock.com

Damo Suzuki & Cuzo - Puedo ver tu Mente Vinyl LP

DAMO SUZUKI, the legendary vocalist of the German Krautrock band CAN and the Spanish band CUZO have released an album of live tracks.

The concept, which is so close to the 'free-jazz' definition, mix together and sculpt a sound that is constantly mutating and fed back with bites of progressive-rock, stoner, psych, kraut, improvisation and many similar styles.

A review...

When Damo Suzuki, the legendary vocalist of German musical innovators Can, decided to record a live album together with Spanish eccentric progressive outfit CUZO, it is obvious that the result has little or nothing in common with conventional rock music. Recorded in 2009 and released thru Alone Records in 2011, 'Pudeo ver tu Mente' is epic, spontaneous and definitely not structured for radio listening. It feels like the stream of conscious work of musical virtuosos unafraid to fail while the music is encouraging, demanding and inspirational. There are no boundaries and none of the three included tracks is static, but always moving what makes it difficult to say what's next. Sometimes there are psychedelic and progressive rock fragments in which rapid changes are taking place.

Furthermore the guitar is continually tweaked with different effects and random odd noises, which all add to the surrealistic yet oneiric atmosphere of 'Pudeo ver tu Mente'. I really like how everything flows in a natural way and it doesn't feel forced at all. As previously mentioned, it seems as if there was a collective consciousness that created this truly captivating consistency. That is all the more astonishing when one considers that this is the first collaboration between the involved parties. And then of course there is Damo Suzuki, who once again puts aside the idea of conventional 'verse-chorus-verse' or even intelligible lyrics. But if you are well-acquainted with his musical history it should not come as a surprise.

On 'Puedo ver tu Mente', his characteristic voice is more like the fourth instrument within this weird jam session that does not grow dull. There are people who say that you need tons of magic mushrooms to make music like this, but we know of course that it is nonsense. If you listen closely, you realise that the involved musicians are very disciplined, despite all looseness. 'Puedo ver tu Mente' is a fascinating work for any adventurous listener, and it's an album that only gets stronger with each spin. I find this is the type of music where you need to sit back, maybe turn on the black light and just take it all in. Higly recommended for psychonauts and improvisational music lovers.---cosmiclava

Electric Wizard - Self Titled Vinyl LP

Considered by many to literally be 'The Heaviest Band In The World', Electric Wizard is more like a cult than a band. The Wizard conjure up visions of Alistair Crowley having a black trip with HP Lovecraft, whilst gazing at the most far out biker flicks ever created. This, combined with the crustiest gravity defying Doom riffs and drones, Electric Wizard have one mission: To Destroy!

Farflung - The Belief Module 2xLP Vinyl

Farflung is an unambiguous gem of clear sonic art. Their music cuts through all kinds of miserable, mental, emotional and musical boundaries. In their wonder-worker songs they offer something perfectly unnamable, the essence of pure atmospheric pleasure with a deepest kind of esoteric and spiritual approaching. All these emotional experiences contained in their music fit wonderfully into their musical manifestations with hot, cool and exciting grooves and riffs.
‘If you’ve never heard of FARFLUNG then you have been missing out on some of the most pleasurable space-rock around. ‘The Belief Module’ was recorded while using vintage instruments and equipment, which reveals the bands dedication and attitude towards their music. This album excels at combining layers of simple guitar and synth lines to create a wall of blistering Krautrock influenced space rock. The distinct infiltration of 60s acid rock (both mainstream and more cutting edge) is evident through the entire album, but is perhaps most evident in ‘Fingers Of The Sky Catcher’, parts of which almost beckon you to recall the earliest Syd Barrett led Pink Floyd glittering gems. ‘Gleam’ adds a more 60s pop style to the mix, yet manages not to be detrimental to the album. The systematic and purposeful fusion of classical acid rock and modern synth space rock makes this album appealing at many levels, and to a wide audience. Despite the fact that both Hawkwind and acid rock inspiration are quite evident through out, this album forges a cosmic path all it’s own’ (Stuntd Growth blog).

Fistula - Loser Vinyl LP

According to FISTULA ringleader Corey Bing, “It’s very dark and sad, twisted humor, dense, heavy, tuned LOW. It sounds like The Hounds: old metal, Venom style with GBH undertones. It sounds like Death playing hopscotch with the apocalypse while finger-bangin’ Autopsy.”
The six-song record features the band’s trademark sickening guitar tone, agonized vocals, and wretched attitude, worshipping as always upon the bloodstained altars of Celtic Frost, Winter, EyeHateGod, and Buzzoven.

Fistula - Goat Vinyl LP ***Crime Scene Edition***

It also contains crime scene photos from the Sowell house (the Cleveland serial killer the album is based on)... in addition to a huge 12 x 18 two-sided poster of collected news paper articles about the murders and case... along with a CSI evidence bag with a real soil-sample from the actual Sowell home (the front yard by the street actually, the rest was fenced off as a crime scene). Totally sick as fuck! All this enclosed in a standard LP jacket of the amazing cover artwork by Steve Barcus.... and then wrapped in official DO NOT CROSS-CRIMESCENE yellow police tape. You really can't get a more elaborate package than this fucker.

Glow - Dive Into The Sun CD

"Pounding, melodic, bluesy doom. That's what Glow is all about. Grooves and rhythmic change-ups, tone and emotion, buttery distortion and a retro Hammond. Glow's got it all, enough to loan to a hundred bands with plenty left over for themselves. These guys recreate Sabbath, Vitus, Trouble, Witchfinder General, Revelation, and other doom masters of the past, blend it with classic rock like Rush, and come out somewhere south of Goatsnake, Abdullah, and Spiritu." ---Kevin StonerRock.com

Ghost - Opus Eponymous Vinyl LP

Standing motionless and anonymous beneath the painted faces, hoods and robes (which their sect demand), the six nameless ghouls of Ghost deliver litanies of sexually pulsating heavy rock music and romantic lyrics, which glorify and glamorize the disgusting and sacrilegious. The simple intention to communicate a message of pure evil via the most effective device they can find: Entertainment. This is Metal at it’s most original and deceiving; compositions such as “Ritual” and “Death Knell” majestically weave their melodic spell of evil through the senses until the listener finds themselves utterly possessed and open to any diabolical suggestion.

A daringly beautiful combination of satanic rock music with an almost unthinkable pop sensibility, Opus Eponymous is a must hear!

For fans of early Mercyful Fate, Angel Witch & The Devil's Blood.

Orthodox - Amanecer en Puerta Oscura Vinyl LP

Orthodox’s second album “Amanecer en Puerta Oscura”, gives a new perspective to the music they create! Compared with their monolithic album debut, “Amanecer en Puerta Oscura” comes across like a trip crossing through different steps where jazz influences, progressive sounds of King Crimson or the crushing and free forms experiences from Black Flag and Captain Beefheart, and at the same time not forgetting the true and pure metal roots from the band and the Andalusian cultural origins. The use of new instrumentation (clarinet, trumpet, contra bass...), fits natural with the band’s original sound, opening a new window to see the light in a dark music concept. For a band like Orthodox, always looking for new and diverse forms of music expressions, “Amanecer en Puerta Oscura” is the logical evolution after their high critical acclaim and recognition with their debut album “Gran Poder”

Orthodox - Baal Vinyl LP

"Baal is comprised of five tracks that follow the band’s charted course of morose exploration, but find them bringing some crunch into their dirges. Where Sentencia had a medieval, blackly-plagued vibe to it, Baal is more directly doomed. As much as they’re within the doom genre, they’re almost never limited by it, and from bassist Marco Serrato Gallardo’s victorious vocal warble on “Taurus” to the recklessly rhythmic drive of “Hanin Ba’al,” it seems Orthodox could go anywhere at any moment and be able to pull something coherent out of it. That’s no easy feat when you’re working with this kind of sonic breadth. With just three members in the band – Gallardo is joined as ever by guitarist Ricardo Jimenez Gómez and drummer Borja Diaz Vera – Orthodox manage to completely set an atmosphere both expansive and encompassing, despite a traditionally doomed, spacious feel in the songs." ---The Obelisk

Steel Mill - Jewels Of the Forest 2xLP Vinyl

Steel Mill are one of the most enigmatic bands from the original British progressive rock boom of the early 70s.Despite scoring a continental hit with their highly acclaimed 1971 debut single Green Eyed God, it took four years before their record company gave the cult classic full-length album of the same title a UK release in 1975. Having been released in Germany in 1972, it still remains a mystery why it took so long to come out in their home country. Of course, by 1975 the band had long since vanished and the music scene had changed dramatically. Nowadays Green Eyed God is a major rarity, having been bootlegged endlessly and has fetched in excess of £1,200 for a mint UK copy.
For years, collectors and experts of the period alike, have been perplexed by the lack of knowledge and information regarding this fantastic band.
Finally the story is told with this detailed release, containing in-depth sleeves notes, many unseen photographs and a plethora of never heard before tracks.

Stone Axe - Stone Axe II Vinyl LP

Once more a great trip back in time; sounds of Thin Lizzy, Free and AC/DC are gathered together again on this second album by Stone Axe. The debut album of this band, which was loaded with top quality early seventies rock with balls rocked a lot of socks off. The debut album was kind of a hobby project of Tony Reed and Dru Brinkerhoff, who could freely express some nostalgic creativity. Every riff and vocal line felt very intense and straight from the heart. Again, with tracks like ‘We Know It’s Still Rock ‘n’Roll’ they bring a great mix of AC/DC and Sweet, and the song ‘On With The Show’ could also have appeared on a Black Crowes album. Also obvious influences of Thin Lizzy (‘Those Were The Golden Days’), Free (‘Live For The Day’ and ‘Aint Gonna Miss It’) and even Procol Harum (‘Turned To Stone’ could also have been called ‘Turned To Whiter Shade Of Pale’) are available on Stone Axe II. This album surely is an incredibly solid rock album, which will excite fans of early seventies rock!

Warchetype - Goat Goddess Supremacy CD

The common admiration and respect for acts like Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus and Candlemass, have been the base to create a doom monster and now Warchetype have become one of the most respected bands in the Spanish underground. With their great musical experience in other bands and a solid metal background makes other see them like the Spanish answer to Electric Wizard and Warhorse. On their debut album “Goat Goddess Supremacy”, Warchetype express themselves with a dark, heavy doom heart apart from creating sinister and dark sound passages inside great compositions. The long instrumental opus “Itaca”, mixed with heavy and powerful vocal tracks is very unique in the Spanish scene, with a singer that actually “sings” and a band that knows how to play a dark song, mixing strength and melody in a perfect doom-metal act with lyrics, always influenced by mythology, ancient culture, and an allegoric vision of the human behavior, strongly influenced by Balzac, Kant, Kafka, Hesse, Homero and Jenofonte. They drone without being labeled a drone band, and are HEAVY like no one else. Prepare for the WARchetype!

Electric Moon - The Doomsday Machine 2xLP Vinyl

Pure psychedelic acid riddled stoner doom is what these Germans from Electric Moon pour forth over humanity. Music to be delved into and not to be consumed fleetingly. So sit back and let yourself be taken on a trip through the universe. Enjoy the combination of the music and accompanying artwork of the LP, it is like the band describes a mission or a journey so you will. A package such as Electric Moon presents in cooperation with artist Ulli Mahn a.k.a. Ulla Papel once again shows that the downloading of MP3s and the artwork as jpg just don’t come anywhere near to the experience of undergoing all this acid goodness on LP format. If there ever was a statement against the downloading of music than ‘The Doomsday Machine’ by Electric Moon is that statement. I can picture this live, liquid projections, long spacey jams and a tripping band and audience. This is psychedelic stoner doom of the highest order.---Lordsofmetal

War Iron - The Faceless Sea Vinyl LP

War Iron, from Belfast, Northern Ireland released their album, The Faceless Sea, back in 2010 but it has finally found it's way to a proper housing on vinyl now, in 2012.

The sea is the theme here, from a squid behemoth lurking through the album art toward monolithic figures reminiscent to that of Easter Island, to sound clips in the first track, Inch cape, of the ocean and some harbor-like bells. Even the newly pressed vinyl version is on an "ocean blue" color. Speaking of Inch cape, have you ever wondered what Weedeater would sound like if they took to the ocean? Probably a bit like these guys. They ride the stoned tide with dual bass players rather than bother with the inadequate tonal qualities of one of those regular "guitars," hammering out beast after beast of vortex inducing riffs. These guys are not likely to have many attendants at a concert in a boat, in the middle of the sea, for fear of their oceanic riffs causing tidal waves that would engulf their adherents. Some people are truly dedicated though...I'll watch from a distance, perhaps from the shoulders of Cthulhu.

Face the Sea, a play on the title of the album itself (perhaps vice versa), is the second, and beefiest track of the album roaming in at just under twenty-one minutes. Slower, more drawn out, droney and turbulent, War Iron part the seas and kill Moses with his phallus shaped staff. It may not have been the Red Sea before, but it certainly will be after. The vocals emanate through whiskey soaked and torn vocal chords in a nice medium tone, nothing so high pitched it smells of black metal squalor, and nothing low enough to be thrown to the gore hound wolves of death metal.

All in all, War Iron deliver something you can write home about, and something I'm sure will sound far better on the vinyl release than it does the digital files. ---Blackenedslug

Wo Fat - The Gathering Dark Vinyl 2xLP Vinyl

From the opening “The Wolf” onwards, the guitars buzz away inside my head and this is to the credit of guitarists Ken Stump and Matt Watkins who are influenced by Marino, Alvin Lee, Leslie West, Tony Iommi and Howlin ' Wolf. Together with a rhythm section as refined and valuable as Tim Wilson and Michael Waker , the twelve tracks put forward are complimentary in both their groove delivery and the rawness in sound the quartet often evoke.. Their material is based on powerful Sabbath/ Motorhead -like riffing, but tracks like the title song and “Holy War” have cool bluesy Skynyrd /Black Oak Arkansas -touches. “The Gathering Dark” swallows in a swamp of Beefheart -bluesiness and murky delusional Magnet dripping riffs, but the tune is able to capture a vibe and groove with it. Some of the passages do grab a voodoo sense of bluesy psychedelia , particularly on my fave “From Beyond” and the instrumental “ Runnin ' The Voodoo Down” .Let us hear more of the rapid-fire guitar riffs and hammering drums of “They're Coming For ou Barbara” and “Company Man” too. Further on we have a Mountain -cover “Land of Milk and Honey” with a tremendous guitar solo . ---Concreteweb

Black Pyramid - Self Titled 2xLP Vinyl

Black Pyramid play doom with the rumbling down-tuned tones of stoner metal gods like Sleep, Electric Wizard, and High On Fire, but with the epic arrangements of old school metal and doom acts such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram, and The Obsessed. Add to the sonic brew perfectly executed forays into vintage psych and progressive rock, along with the apocalyptic lyrical ravings about war, the occult, and general alienation, and you've got an accurate picture of what the band is all about. Prepare to be crushed by the weight of the Black Pyramid

Saint Vitus - Heavier Than Thou 2xLP Vinyl

Saint Vitus are gods of doom. They sounded roughly the way Black Sabbath should have after their first few albums. Heavier Than Thou is a compilation album of their best work from the Reagan era. Unlike the aforementioned president, this is a first-rate album.

It features nearly all of Born Too late, and a few songs each from Saint Vitus, Hallow's Victim and Mournful Cries. This is some dark and sad sounding stuff, both in lyrics and instrumentation. “Born Too Late” is about alienation, “Dying Inside” is about alcoholism and “Shooting Gallery” is about intravenous drug abuse. These are just some of the more notable examples of tales of sorrow set to Sabbath-style riffs here. This was definitely not the feel-good album of the year. Unfortunately, it doesn't have Burial at Sea. This is a sad omission, but there are still plenty of great songs.

Two vocalists perform on this album, Wino and Scott Reagers. Wino has the more traditional style, and Reagers sounds a bit like a lounge singer. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. It adds a unique vibe. The rhythm guitar parts are classic doom and are quite enjoyable. The tone is quite nasal, featuring plenty of low-end and midrange without sounding muddy. It's aggressive and sinister sounding, without going overboard. The lead work is competent, but sometimes seems bland when compared to the excellent riffing that serves as the meat in the sonic sandwich. The bass and drum work is good, but isn't as refined and funky as the early Sabbath albums. The bass doesn't usually stray too far from what the guitar is doing. It mainly seems to be there for support, and not a significant part of the song structure. There aren't a lot of drum fills here, but rather a steady pounding to keep the beat. It would've been nice if Vitus added a little more focus to these aspects, but the guitar work is so good I suppose it's not so bad that the bass and drums add reinforcement, as opposed to accompaniment.

This album documents the bridge between the beginnings of doom and the more modern doom of today. It's an important piece of doom history, and a pleasure to listen to. --- SoylentGreenIsPeople

Anathema - Eternity 2xLP Vinyl

Duncan Patterson, the band mastermind at the time, wanted Eternity to be Anathema's White Album. He wanted the cover artwork to pay homage to the Beatles classic, but Music for Nations considered the concept noncommercial. So the album cover ended up sporting an image of an angel lost in cheesy CGI space. This vinyl reissue has the music spread over two albums for maximum fidelity - the original MFN vinyl had everything stuffed on one platter - and, for the first time ever, the artwork as Patterson originally wanted it to look. Available on white and black heavyweight vinyl. Also features new liner notes by Mr Patterson.

Bell Witch - Self Titled Vinyl LP

Seattle Funeral Doom-Death/Sludge band Bell Witch's 2011 demo presented on the proper vinyl format.

"Young and doubly-dreadlocked Seattle duo Bell Witch seem to have a pretty good sense of what works. Their bass/drum doom oppression came to my attention via the forum, and apparently their late-2011 demo has made a solid impression elsewhere around the intertubes as well. No surprise, it’s heavy as hell and blends ’90s-style death/doom (we’re due for a death/doom revival) with the ritualistic often heard from newer traditionally-minded acts. Like I said, they know what works.

The demo is comprised of four tracks, but really the crux of the thing resides in the songs “I Wait” (11:39) and “Mayknow” (18:31), which make up the middle. Opener “Beneath the Mask” is just under four minutes, but mostly serves to introduce the darkness of mood that plays out over the whole and to show Bell Witch‘s allegiance to classic horror atmospheres in an extended sample. Likewise, closer “The Moment” is an instrumental outro, so soft toward the end it’s barely there.

On the whole, “I Wait” and “Mayknow” would have enough between them to make for a satisfying listen, but the lead in and lead out make the demo an even more intriguing and complex listen. Bassist Dylan Desmond and drummer Adrian Guerra both also contribute vocals, which vary in approach from low growling to cleaner chants that serve as the payoff for the substantial journey that is “Mayknow.” It’s a solid mix of influences, and like the best of demos, Bell Witch‘s is enough to pique the interest in what they might do from here." ---TheObelisk

Black Magic Six - Brutal Blues Vinyl LP

Three albums and 250 shows in 21 countries during the last five years under their belt, Black Magic Six is Finland’s hardest working band in the underground rock´n´roll scene. A power duo consisting of a percussionist and a guitar-wielding singer, BM6 play relentlessly emotional bursts of dark, primal rock'n'roll energy.

The restless duo turn over a new leaf with their new album, Brutal Blues. The title is a bit misleading, as the band has not quite become a blues combo. Instead of playing a set of 12-bar blues standards the dynamic duo brings you ten brutal slices of life in and out of the ordinary. Sonically the album is a more mature affair in comparison to their earlier masterpieces. It's a smooth mixture of rootsy blues and rockabilly, with even some country thrown in, all soaked up in the Devil's music also known as dirty, greasy punk rock.

Brutal Blues is recommended for everyone. For best results we recommend to play it at maximum volume with your stereophonic sound system. Also playable in mono.

Ensorcelor - Crucifuge Vinyl LP

"This Montreal Epic Blackened Doom band has created a classic album called Crucifuge. The record contains two songs and clocks in at 35 minutes of radness. The first thing that I dig so fucking much about this band is the vocalist – it’s as if his vocal chords were dipped in blackened honey. His melodic shrill tones are sinister and paint portraits of grey clouds, but within the the bile he unleashes onto the world, the black sun still shines through. Musically Ensorcelor are ancient guides that carry you over vast stretches of sonic landscapes on their mammoth emotive waves. This band plays chords that strike at the darkened hearts of us all, but deep down in the pit of their sound you can hear the unholy war being fought on our behalf. Ensorcelor is the cure they conjure up, the bad medicine that I need to get me through this thing called life. This album is full of bleak caverns for your imagination to hide & wander in. There are mountains of blackened melodies for you to hang from as you think about how you don’t want this nightmare to end!" ---Cvltnation

The Wounded Kings - In The Chapel Of The Black Hand Vinyl LP

Brand new tracks of epic and apocalyptic doom under the title of ‘In the Chapel of the Black Hand’. This new phase in the development of The Wounded Kings features the dark and chilling vocals of Sharie Neyland along with one of the heaviest rhythm sections in South West England. Despite, or because of, the hardships the Kings determination and unique vision for heavy music remains as strong as ever. ‘In the Chapel of the Black Hand’ was recorded in the beautiful Welsh Valleys at the legendary Foel Studios with Chris Fielding (Primordial, Napalm Death, Serpent Venom and Conan) at the helm and the music undulates with vintage amplification and is swathed in Hammond organ, Mellotron and choirs – things fans have come to love and expect. Preserved is also one of the band’s strongest points which is their ability to transport the listener to all the horrific places a mind is able to imagine. Whilst the previous two albums (‘Embrace of the Narrow House’ (2008) and ‘The Shadow Over Atlantis’ (2010)) were bleak and full of despair, ‘In the Chapel of the Black Hand’ is seething with menace and danger. It is a journey to ghostly worlds – suffocating and claustrophobic – where ancient terrors slowly seep into the bloodstream. The listener will be grateful to get out alive with their soul and sanity intact – just as it should be.

Arc Of Ascent - Circle Of the Sun Vinyl LP

In December 1999 New Zealand's DATURA, one of Australasia's most promising Acid-Stoner-doom bands split up. After releasing the amazing "Visions for the Celestial" the band trailed of into oblivion never to be seen again, only Craig Williamson, the bass player & vocalists survived....continuing alone as one of the country's best known psychedelic artifacts LAMP OF THE UNIVERSE. In 2008, feeling the need to get back into a more "heavy stoner acid rock" direction Williamson formed ARC OF ASCENT, recruiting firstly Guitarist Matt Cole-Baker and then Drummer John Strange to complete the line-up. "Circle of the Sun" is the bands debut album and continues onwards almost exactly where Daturas "Visions" left off. The heaviness is still present, but there is an added otherworldly texture dwelling inside, the guitars are dense and direct in feel -with an Egyptian sounding slant to Matt Cole-Bakers cosmic solos, the drumming powerful, solid and dynamic...and Williamson's "Eastern" vibes raise their head in almost every song, vocally, with the extra exotic instruments he brings to the table, and the music he has written for the group. Titles such as "Universal Form" & "Cosmic Eye" re-enforce the eastern-mystic feel the band creates, lyrically recalling Williamson's Lamp of the Universe style, blending almost seamlessly with the majestic heaviness and trippy interludes that the band creates...Take a hit, re-call your inner light, and enjoy the sound of a new beginning....the time is now...

Doctor Cyclops - Borgofondo Vinyl LP

Psych injected blues based retro-doom! The band is Doctor Cyclops and they kick ass! Think Black Sabbath, Witchcraft, Graveyard and even a little Siena Root.

Official Bio:

Doctor Cyclops is a seventies-style power trio playing heavy rock music inspired by a vintage sound, eldest son of glorious Black Sabbath and of other more underground heroes from the 70's and early 80's such as Truth and Janey, Sir Lord Baltimore, Captain Beyond, Witchfinder General. Even later and more modern references are warm-vintage style ones: Witchcraft, Firebird, Cathedral, Spiritual Beggars just to say some.

The project was born in 2007 in Oltrepo in a small village called Bosmenso, in the middle of the Appennino mountains. A place where winters are long and quite often really cold. Former members are Christian Draghi (guitar and vocals) and Francesco Filippini (bass), childhood friends who try to push by with their passionate love for music and good riffs. Doctor Cyclops’ music is an obscure kind of heavy old style rock, its groove made by a miscellaneous heap mix of influences, which go from the progressive to the doom stuff played with a raw and dusty wish.

Datura - Visions For The Celestial Vinyl LP

Following the bands globally acclaimed 1998 debut album 'Allisone'. This is the eagerly awaited follow-up featuring some powerfull blasts of PSYCHEDELIC STONER ROCK, laying to rest the comparisons with Monster Magnet and Kyuss, thus created their own kind of HEAVY BASS GROOVES and PSYCHEDELIC ROCK. On this record you will find a 15 minutes track alled "Mantra" which convinces you, that the realm of psychedelic has a border with the stoner kingdom, where all the monsters live. Visions... is a cosmic stoner groove bliss-out at its very best and sees the band carving out their own sound and vision. Slower Sabbath soaked rhythms and tranced out psychedelics permeate the album throughout bridging the gap between metal and acid rock in ways not done before.

Ilsa - Tutti Il Colori Del Buio Vinyl LP

A rotten slab of vile, crusty doom/death filth! Hailing from Washington, DC, ILSA deliver 9 tracks, clocking in at 40 minutes, of blown out, severely down-tuned, crust-injected death-doom. The album has been remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin for total abyssic heaviness. Parallels can be drawn to early Bolt Thrower, Paradise Lost, Axegrinder, later Anti-Cimex(think Scandinavian Jawbreaker era), Autopsy, and Winter. Disgusting horror reigns.

Jaguar - Axe Crazy In Holland 2xLP Vinyl

...Once again a killer release has surfaced that especially is cool for Dutch, and in particular the older, fans ...a double LP called ‘Axe Crazy In Holland’ with recordings of the show Jaguar did on December 17th, 1982 at the Siesta Club in Hengelo. These recordings withstood the test of time really well, but they do sound quite raw. Nothing wrong with that because songs like ‘Dutch Connection’, ‘Backstreet Woman’, ‘Stormchild’, ‘War Machine’, ‘Cold Heart’ and ‘Axe Crazy’ will give you goose bumps even if you weren’t born at that time or weren’t part of the fanatical Dutch crowd that attended this show and completely embraced this band back in the day. This live album simply is a cool document about an important but somewhat underestimated NWOBHM-act. ---lordsofmetal

Lamp Of The Universe - Echo In Light Vinyl LP

Lamp Of The Universe, from New Zealand plays the kind of music you might imagine hearing while laying on your back in some far away garden. Each song has it's own distinct, trippy vibe, but they all flow together with amazing ease. Featuring a strong melody sung in Craig Williamson's typically blissed out, smiling voice, some of the deepest wah-wahed guitar I've ever heard, coupled with waves of trippy organ and a graceful, fluid rhythm pounded out on the skins. Combine it with swirling, bubbling liquid synth effects and tambourine psychedelic, bluesy guitar swirls around mystical piano, trancey drumming, and spacey effects in a dazzling, cosmically mellow jam that will have you floating away on gentle waves into the starry night. Lay back, and let your mind and soul wander. Totally cosmic!

Lamp Of The Universe - The Cosmic Union Vinyl LP

Lamp of the Universe is a gorgeously lulling cosmic trip into a paisley colored psychedelic land of celestial ragas from Craig Williamson's (Datura, Arc Of Ascent) guitars, sitar, synths, and tablas. We're talking track titles like "Lotus Of A Thousand Petals" and "Tantra Asana". Believe me, these describe the music on The Cosmic Union perfectly. Lightly strumming acoustic guitars and sitars drift throughout as the tablas and other percussion keep a simple but effective psychedelic pace. Williamson's vocals are equally light and drifting making for the perfect marriage with his music. Lots of beautifully meandering jams that will open your mind for exploring the alternate realms that you travel with Williamson to. There are aggressive moments too, particularly on "In The Mystic Light" which sounds like a jam off Amon Dti album. And love that organ and shimmering guitar on "Freedom In Your Mind".

Pagan Altar - The Lords Of Hypocrisy 2xLP Vinyl

"This album is so good on so many levels, it's hard to know where to start and it's hard not to use huge grandiose adjectives. Over the top, yet not cheesy. Fantastic, yet brutally honest. Poetic, yet direct. Heavy, yet restrained as hell. Dynamic, yet completely cohesive. Classic and timeless. Heavy fucking metal, rock and fucking roll - the way it should be done. This goes way up there next to Rainbow, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, and Zeppelin releases in my book." ---- glenhetfield/Metal-Archives

Blackwolfgoat - Dronolith Vinyl LP

Guitarist Darryl Shepard, one-time member of bands such as Hackman, Roadsaw, Milligram and now Black Pyramid, decided to go it alone for his latest endeavor, choosing to create loops and drones which could then be added to and layered upon to build songs out of the simplest of material. With just one guitar and one amplifier, Shepard has crafted musical pieces which take the listener to some dark places, and some lighter ones as well.

Doomraiser - Erasing the Remembrance 2xLP Vinyl

"...This is my kind of Doom Metal rock,they take all the best elements from the Maryland Doom Scene and mix it up with sounds ranging from Sabbath,Captain Beyond and other underground 70's proto Metal to guitar riffs and musical passages that remind me of early "Celtic Frost".

Although there is nothing original about what they do,what they do is some infectious and full of so much groove.Its a real talent and strength to put together 7,9,10 and even 15 minute tracks and not once does it seem the tunes are long.They are structured with just the right amount of tempo and mood changes that nothing outstays its welcome.There is no low points to this release and highlights are plenty including "Another Black Day" that has one of the coolest mid-tempo headbanging sections heard in a long time." ---Doomantia

Doomraiser - Mountains Of Madness Vinyl LP

"...The level of crippling doom has been cut back ever so slightly, there is nothing on this release to compare with 'Another Black Day' from the exceptionally classic 'Erasing the Remembrance' album and this leads me to my next point. Rather than simply copying the style and vibe of that album, they have progressed and created an album with its own unique feel, sound textures and atmosphere but don't worry doom-heads, this is still very much a doom-metal album.

The more varied approach on 'Mountains Of Madness' gives the album a certain mystique that 'Erasing the Remembrance' didn't have, there is something in these occult-driven grooves that makes this their most original album to date. There is only 5 songs spread out over 46 very enigmatic minutes and it is without a doubt some of best music I have listened to all year." 9.5/10---Doomantia

Graal - Legends Never Die Vinyl LP

"I'm not overly familiar with this little Italian band called Graal, but after a few spins of their latest release Legends Never Die, I'm sure as hell taking notice. The band, comprised of Andrea Ciccomartino (Vocals and Guitars), Francesco Zagarese (Guitars), Danilo Petrelli (Keyboards), Michele Raspanti (Bass), and Alex Giuliani (Drums), draw their influences from such 'legends' as Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath, Yes, Bloodrock, Led Zeppelin, and Genesis. More of a 70's inspired hard rock record than anything else, but the band do add in enough classic prog elements to make this one really interesting, much like Sweden's Black Bonzo.
If you like heavy guitar riffs, raging Hammond organ, melodic vocals, the occasional prog synth solo, and blistering lead guitar, you've come to the right place... Though plenty bands do the retro 70's hard rock/prog thing these days, not many are as convincing or as enjoyable to listen to as Graal, and for that, their latest Legends Never Die I can highly recommend."---Seaoftranquility

Graal - Tales Untold Vinyl LP

For all 70s sound lovers; Graal plays an explosive and personal mixture between Hard rock and Progressive, with fantasy echoes, acoustic breaks, haunting chorals cuts, Hammond and guitar solos duels!

Jacula - Pre Viam Vinyl LP

Dark progressive rock concept album portraying the true & horrific story of a possessed girl!

Esoterically Pre Viam (an anagram of Vampire as the previous Per Viam) is focused on the sadness, the melancholy and the suicidal tendency of the protagonist portrayed through seven fantastic musical paintings where the unfailing Gibson SG of the author unveils the face of the most authentic progressive rock, where the acoustic guitar phrasing gives a link with the past, where the epic evocative world of the big keyboards is absolutely unique, where the perfectionist drumming ranges from electro-next to rock. The concept created by Antonio Bartoccetti is is a spine-chilling release, a perseverant concentrate of killing brainstorming and also a genial mixture of conflicting adjectives aimed to the mystical-theological-esoterical-existential reflection of the listener. A fusion created by a superior mind with metal core touches very loved by the younger generations, with a para-biblical, mystical, darkly magic sound obviously progressive with esoteric musical inventions such as the absolutely new perseverant sound and a black queen who sings in an anomalous way her dis-harmonic melody. Pre viam promises it won't miss a beat: catacombal groove, cryptic rhythm guitars, unique chanting of the Lady in Black, aristocratic, noble, dreaming atmospheres and surely great visions...

Finally back the “Cemetery Rock” of L’Impero delle Ombre with their long waited second album. I Compagni di Baal (Les Compagnons de Baal) is inspired by the french TV Series from the 1960's. After first album issued in 2004, the band began working on this concept album. Cardellino brothers (vocals & guitar) studied the meaning of the TV series adapting their compositions and finishing concept with the help of Caroli brothers (Sabotage), Fabio Oliveti, Dario Petrelli and great keyboards work of friend Oleg Smirnoff (Death SS); Oleg added progressive touches with his symphonic arrangements to the essential Hard Rock sound of the band now strictly connected with the 70s Italian Progressive feeling.

Sancta Sanctorum - Black Sun Vinyl LP

Dark doom sounds as only the Italian scene can produce! Features legendary vocalist Steve Sylvester of Death SS, the highly respected Italian underground band. The powerful music of Sancta Sanctorum is heavily inspired by early progressive elements and the best 70s hard rock has to offer

Sancta Sanctorum - The Shining Darkness Vinyl LP

"If you have ever seen the promo pics of Sancta Sanctorum, you will get a instant vibe of what this band is all about. The photos display a band all looking like Tony Iommi's and Geezer Butler's from the Paranoid era of Black Sabbath, not that there is anything wrong with that. The band features three members of the classic Death SS line-up from 1977-1984, i speak of course of Steve Sylvester, Thomas H. Chaste and Danny Hughes. After 26 years, these three gentlemen decided to join forces once again to carry on the tradition started by the Italian masters all those years ago. If you have never heard Death SS, you better do so soon, they are still one of the most underrated bands of all time.

Sancta Sanctorum seems to be the next logical step for the guys from Death SS, the band have a similar approach to making music. The 70's Doom, occult vibe, the psyche rock elements mixed with early proto progressive heavy metal. All these sounds are interwoven throughout the disc and the end result is something other 70's wanna-be bands should check out because not many bands can nail the sounds and the vibes of the style like Sancta Sanctorum can. Along with the Death SS threesome, John Di Lallo and Frederick Dope completes the line-up on keyboards and guitar. The album also includes input from Mario Di Donato the leader of the Italian progressive Doom band The Black as well as the pioneers of Italian sound "Requiem" plus the guest appearance of B.J from Doomraiser." ---Doomantia

Temple Of Pain - Lords of the Undead Knights Vinyl LP

"...TEMPLE OF PAIN is a new project from Fabio 'Thunder' Bellan (mainly known as the mind behind Thunderstorm) it was clear to me that this takes off in a proper doom metal direction. Fortunately, I was not mistaken... Bellan takes his morbid visions to another level with this debut release from TEMPLE OF PAIN. He is assisted in this by drummer Dario Fava as well as a couple of guest musicians. The performance is brutally heavy and dark, yet the songs still retain memorable, well-developed melodies. There is a musty dark ages vibe on 'Lord Of The Undead Knights', that never becomes corny. These are two points, which make sure that each of the five tracks (including the intro) aroused my interest.

Although it's only an EP, the playing time reaches a maximum length of 33:28 minutes, which means that all tunes, except for the intro, are epic as fuck. It is thus clear that TEMPLE OF PAIN prefer to play epic doom metal, and fortunately they avoid weepiness and weakness. The songs, driven by oppressive Stonehenge-sized riffs, oscillate between mid-paced and slow and bulldoze everything around. In vain does one seek cheerful moments in the songs, which are also suitable for the next medieval decapitation. This is definitely the darkest stuff ever written by Fabio Bellan..." ---Cosmiclava

The Heavy Eyes - Self Titled Vinyl LP

THE HEAVY EYES are a young rock trio from Memphis, Tennessee. They describe their sound as stoner blues. I call it stoner blues psych rock with very strong influences from the American rock scene 1969-73. The spirit of Cactus, Sir Lord Baltimore, Blue Cheer, Josefus and Mountain floats above this one all the way. The music sounds fantastically warm and has been completely recorded with analog equipment ... not, but it truly sounds like that, you`ll be surprised! A mixture of early Fu Manchu and Budgie, especially the vocals. The drums are massive and very Zeppelin-esque, the killer bass originates from Grand Funk. Songs like `Voytek`, `War Apple` and `Where Is Wilder` are extremely catchy tunes and hit as hard as Pentagram`s `Forever My Queen` (1973). Top score for one of the most beautiful `stoner blues` albums of 2012.

The Hounds of Hasselvander - The Ninth Hour Vinyl LP

Almost unbelievably heavy and portentous from the outset, The Hounds of Hasselvander's 'The Ninth Hour' is an album crafted from the bottom up - from the inside out - for maximum impact. Unlike many ostensibly similar works of late, this is not a bunch of loose ideas cobbled together and thrown into some interchangeable sub-genre of the moment in hopes of invoking a mood. Hasselvander is the genre. "The Ninth Hour" is the mood. Every moment of this album is like another drop of blood applied onto the canvas of your mind with great intent, care and purpose. Around each corner is a surprise - but the kind of dream-logic surprise you always knew was coming; that you always knew was there. Waiting. Ever waiting. And by the climax of the epic first number, you'll know what for One striking development of note that I would like to mention for this latest Hound's release is the subtle use of keyboards on several tracks throughout "The Ninth Hour" (played by Paolo "Apollo" Negri from Wicked Minds). I can hear some of you thinking, 'oh, no - not that!', but I can reassure you: we're talking deep, rich '70s-style tones - and styles that remain true to the heaviness of the music without distracting the ear and weakening the strength of the melodies. The band is led by Joe Hasselvander who as you may know has done time with Death Row, Black Manta and of course doom gods Pentagram!

Wino & Conny Ochs - Heavy Kingdom Vinyl LP

The legacy of Scott "Wino" Weinrich in the world of heavy music is indisputable, many have postulated his influence in the underground rock scene over the last decade. Now Wino has teamed up with Conny Ochs, a songwriter so pure and honest in his output that he seems to be the perfect partner. Wino and Conny met for the first time in 2010 when Conny was supporting Wino on his European acoustic solo tour promoting 'Adrift'. From the beginning there seemed to be an extraordinary vibe between the two individuals. Through music they discovered a very similar approach to life and art and a shared wisdom in creating music. By the end of the tour they shared the stage every night with Conny accompanying Wino during his set.
Recorded in Kabumm Studios in Berlin in August 2011, the 11 soulful songs on Heavy Kingdom were written together with the exception of "Highway Kind" by Townes Van Zandt - an artist Wino and Conny both deeply admire.

Its out on the Black Widow Records label which continues to amaze with their range of styles and quality of releases. Along with the obvious ZZ Top and Motorhead influences, there is also elements of Hawkwind, Kyuss, Black Sabbath and even Pink Floyd in small doses so this pure rocking stuff..."---Doomantia

Angel Witch - As Above So Below 2xLP Vinyl

With a lineage dating back to 1977, South London’s Angel Witch were leading lights of a now legendary movement known as the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal that saw their path interwoven with the likes of Iron Maiden, Saxon, Samson, Praying Mantis, the Tygers Of Pan Tang and countless more.

Unlike a great many of the groups with whom they shared stages their style was dark, uncompromising and heavy; a perfect complement for the sword & sorcery-themed lyrics of songs such as White Witch, Gorgon and Angel Of Death – no wonder Geoff Barton of Sounds magazine once memorably described their bludgeoning sound as: "the first Black Sabbath album played through a cement mixer".

Bang - Death of A Country Vinyl LP

This previously unreleased 1971 album get s its first ever release on vinyl, via Rise Above Relics. Cult Band Bang recorded Death of a Country for Capitol Records, which was immediately rejected, considered to be sounding too underground and not commercial enough.

Regarded by many as being America’s answer to early Black Sabbath, Death of a Country, displays a darker psychedelic mood than the more straightforward proto-metal /hard rock that was to follow. Dark, trippy lyrics and studio effects owe more to early Pink Floyd than Black Sabbath on this particular release.

Corrosion of Conformity - Self Titled 2xLP Vinyl

Corrosion of Conformity unleashes a brand new release with and old lineup. Which makes this release a bit more intriguing. If you are a fan of C.O.C. than this will be a nice taste for your pallet. It would not be surprising to see this release take off. It has all the bite and artistic approach that will satisfy many different genre's. In the self titled release there is a strong doom vibe to it and extremely powerful riffs that Iommi would be drawn to. It is sweet to hear them go from a doom riff to a swampy stride into an all out headbanging assault all in one song.

The opening track "Psychic Vampire" sets the stage for this release. It opens and really pulls you into the vibe of what is to come. It definitely has you singing along before the track is completed. Extremely catchy chorus. Some of my favorite tracks off this release is "River of Stone", "Leeches", the "Moneychangers", and the most powerful track off this one "Weaving Spiders Come Not Here". A strong, creative track is "What You Despise Is What You've Become"

Overview : I thought this one would be a disc that you have to listen to a few times to get the vibe but after the first run through I have to say that this one has to be one of their best releases to date. I would highly recommend this release if you are in to the strong doom, and progressive changes in every song that keeps you anticipating the next note. I have to admit that this release is a refreshing taste of C.O.C. Make the self titled Corrosion of Conformity release yours today! ---Examiner

Dopefight - Buds Vinyl LP

In case you couldn't already tell from their name, or their album name, Belzebong is a stoner doom band. What might be a surprise is, they're from Poland.

Sonic Scapes & Weedy Grooves is the first full-length from a band that's decidedly mellower than their countrymen Behemoth and Vader. If you've ever heard Electric Wizard or Weedeater, you're thinking exactly on the right track. It's fuzzier than Georgia peaches covered in hallucinogenic fungus, heavier than the Half Ton Man, and just as likely as him to get off the couch after eating said fruit.

They lay down massive grooves that get your whole body swaying, and they know how to write a riff. Like Weedeater, they keep it short (it's only a half hour) and eschew the long, meandering ambient sections of EW. Going instrumental the whole way through was a gamble, but I think it paid off. They keep it interesting with plenty of riff and tempo changes, a couple of samples (from occult horror movies or 50's anti-drug films), psychedelic leads and guitar noises, and feedback. Then they took these four great tracks and arranged them perfectly into a cohesive whole. It's almost like they were sober enough to know what they were doing.---fullmetalattorney

Druid Lord - Druid Death Cult 7" Vinyl

Old school infected doom-death!

Formed in 2010, DRUID LORD isn’t a seasoned band per se but its members damn are. Having served massively in the sadly overlooked EQUINOX but also in DIABOLIC, ACHERON or even the mighty INCUBUS, those guys are the real deal and have collectively decided under their new banner to go back to their roots, both musically and spiritually wise. So while the music of DRUID LORD is a fine return to the days of yore when VENOM, CELTIC FROST and POSSESSED reigned supreme, a time where death fuckin’ metal meant heavy tempos, great riffs and dark atmosphere, not technically wanking nor ill-fated so-called concepts, they’ve been playing over the last two years the UG game faithfully according to its original rules. So besides one hell of a debut album released on Walpurgis night in 2010 (and aptly titled ‘Hymns Of The Wicked’), they’ve also been steadily putting out split seven EP with a couple of fellow retro-metalheads, namely WOODEN STAKE, KAIJU and SKELETAL SPECTRE.

But this one is different. The first 7 inches of theirs bearing their name alone underneath its creepy Mark Riddick artwork enhanced by your average DOOMENTIA quality stamp, ‘Druid Death Cult’ also contains what is maybe their heaviest material to date. Yes, the fact that the whole thing starts off to the sound of thunder, pouring rain and of a church bell echoing (Black Sabbath anyone?!) in the distance ain’t no coincidence as those two new tracks, once again recorded by the band’s own Tony Blakk last fall, were conceived under the sign of doooooom. Twelve fuckin’ minutes that are bound to firmly put DRUID LORD at the top of the old-school doom/death food chain!

Moonless - Calling All Demons Vinyl LP

There’s worse places to start, than to play your debut show opening for Japanese serial-killer obsessed CHURCH OF MISERY. Then again, since MOONLESS also later did gigs with SAINT VITUS, PENTAGRAM and UFOMAMMUT and are about to unleash their brilliant debut, one could say this was just a beginning…

Musically lying somewhere in between stoner, doom, psychedelic and heavy 70’s rock, this still quite young outfit really makes a difference by having perfectly nailed the ability to write great songs. Underneath the Tony Iommi-styled riffing, thunderous drums and fuzzy bass lines, lies choruses and real catchy hooks that will stick in your cranium for the rest of the month once you’ve heard them.

‘Calling All Demons’ is accompanied by mind blowing cover art by Tue S. and the songs on this debut album are nothing short of a triumph, ready to step up at the top of the mountain of bodies that used to be called the stoner scene. It’s both old school yet fresh sounding slow bonecrushin’ rock’n’roll. Pure primal testosterone sludge done the right way, the MOONLESS way.

Mellow Candle - Swaddling Songs Box Set

These days considered to be at the very pinnacle of what is considered ‘Acid Folk’, Mellow Candle’s legendary Swaddling Songs album has become one of the most praised and collectable releases from the golden era of the late 60’s/early 70’s.

Original mint copies now fetch in excess of £2,000 on the collectors market! But it's not just the rarity that merits such value, it’s an album that exudes excellence in every possible way. Led by the strong charismatic vocals of Clodagh Simonds and Alison Williams, their songs are memorable enough to have lasted this long, when they were, sadly, barely recognized at the time.

Orange Goblin - A Eulogy For The Damned Vinyl LP

Britain’s doom metal titans Orange Goblin triumphantly return to the throes of the chaotic heavy metal madness they have championed for the last sixteen years. For the band’s seventh album, the aptly titled “A Eulogy for the Damned”, Orange Goblin seeks out songs bordering on new territory without abandoning their sludgy riff-laden doom metal roots. For those who are fans of the heavy and have not had the privilege to salute the altar of the mighty Orange Goblin, prepare to be bewildered by one of the most underrated metal acts on earth.

The opening track, “Red Tide Rising”, borders on dark thrash as the band mercilessly wields their instruments like Vikings charging onto the battle field, ultimately setting the tone for the remainder of the album. “How many chances do I get to find redemption?” Ben Ward belts out in “Stand for Something” as the song charges forward like a barbarian’s battering ram before breaking out into a blistering solo. Ben Ward’s lyrics speak of alternate realities, facing the world we all live in and the idea that freedom is only for those who are willing to fight for it. The music accurately reflects these themes, especially in the blazing bong huffing anthem “The Filthy and the Few” that fires through the listener’s headphones on all cylinders and doesn’t take any prisoners.

Although the band is notoriously known for their fuzzed out riffs and grooves that slice like the blade of a guillotine, “A Eulogy for the Damned” sees Orange Goblin at their tightest. The immaculate production from two-time Grammy nominated engineer Andy Jackson (who once worked for Pink Floyd) boldly takes the band into sonic territory they have never been before. Despite the band admitting this is the first album they’ve ever recorded while being sober, the songs will make fans raise their goblets of ale to cheers the Goblin’s righteous tunes. ---Lithiummagazine

Tank86 / Sardonis - Split 7" Vinyl

Split single between 2 heavy INSTRO-DOOM-RIFFING bands, TANK86 from Holland and SARDONIS from Belgium.

Tank86 - Rise Vinyl LP

Sludge metal band TANK86 delivers mighty sonic blows, never losing sight of the almighty riff, pounding you into oblivion. Harmonised guitars, a layered approach and guest appearances by Peter van Elderen (Peter Pan Speedrock) and Tommi Holappa (Dozer / Greenleaf) add true depth to the massive sound of the instrumental band. Initially, TANK86 may have prompted comparisons to Karma To Burn's brand of bone-charring riffs and heavy, groove-based approach, but over the years the band's instru-metal has matured in the rehearsal space and live on stage (including a European tour with Dozer) into something special and genre-defying.

Torche - Harmonicraft Vinyl LP

"It’s about damn time. Not just for a new Torche album—though it has been a solid four years—but for an album like this: a muscular barrage of ear-filling power riffs and dogged rhythm that sounds uplifting without being masked in grandiose pretension. Where so many of their contemporaries thrash or jitter as a way to mask their lack of any real force, these Floridian sludgers know the inherent joy in noisy creation, and choose to relay it with sheer strength instead of bile or melodrama...". ---popmatters

Astra - The Black Chord Vinyl LP

Born in San Diego but bred in the mists of Avalon, Astra have fast-become a synonym for the ethereal, the sublime, and indeed the genuinely progressive. Ever since 2009’s The Weirding put these analog-inflected San Diego visionaries on the map alongside the likes of co-conspirators Earthless, Diagonal and Dungen, who – like some lost tribe of prog faithful - have brought this unwieldly and much maligned form of music out of the dark ages and in front of a new generation of mellotron-loving cognoscenti. Like a Meddle-era ‘Floyd supercharged by a Mahavishnu-intensity not seen since for eons, The Black Chord is an album of blinding light and abysmal shade, of bone-jarring rhythmic density and vast, breathtaking mental vistas: nothing less than epic journey through the outer reaches of musical possibility tinged by an elegance and knowingness that suggests a creative maturity beyond the members’ collective years. Therein lies their redemption, because this is a record at home in 1972 as it is in 2012. Think wailing guitars and dulcet harmonies thickened by Mellotrons and given hypnotic qualities by the kind of drumming that borders on the shamanic. Cinematic in scope but frequently yielding to a kind of melodic fragility that can only be the product of genuine emotion, The Black Chord’s musical ebb and flow prove Astra to be both a band’s band capable of an artistry all-too-rare among their generation, and it’s a sound to behold.

Lord Vicar - Signs Of Osiris 2xLP Vinyl

As the final nails were hammered to the coffin of Reverend Bizarre (1995-2007, R.I.P.), guitar player Peter Vicar started to follow his vision of a new True Doom Metal band. He felt forced to fulfill his need to compose and play this most arcane form of metal in the way it was meant to be, full of intensity, cruelty, heaviness, and force. Still firmly walking in the footsteps of Saint Vitus, Trouble, Witchfinder General and Pentagram!

Sigiriya - Return To Earth Vinyl LP

Beneath the soil of a Welsh valley a heavy metal life-force regains strength: rising from the ashes of stoner doom merchants Acrimony, Sigiriya is born. Eight years after the demise of Acrimony, guitarist Stu O'Hara, bassist Mead, drummer Darren Ivey and vocalist Dorian Walters have reconvened. Not wanting the limitations of reforming a project long dead to them, Sigiriya brings a fresh take on their trademark monolithic heavy groove. While Acrimony hailed from the temples of deepest space, Sigiriya come from the earthy depths, bringing hefty, tremor-inducing sonics that pay homage to the riff.

Spiders - Self Titled 10" Vinyl

With female lead singer and members from bands like Witchcraft, Graveyard and Madamm you know you’re in for a treat. SPIDERS mix garage punk and early hard rock with bluesy melodies. The band is fronted by a female lead singer possessing a fantastic voice with attitude, reminding of a new Jinx Dawson or Mariska Veres. In addition to that we find the guitarist from Witchcraft, the drummer from Graveyard and the bass player from Midwest in the line-up. SPIDERS’ songs reveal the bands incredible songwriting prowess and the music is full of energy and raw rock riffs. Or as some might put it: it’s simply kick-ass rock and roll straight into your heart.

Saint Vitus - Lillie: F-65 Vinyl LP

SAINT VITUS are the godfathers of American Doom Metal. A statement weighing as heavy as this band sounds. Nonetheless this is simply the truth.

Therefore it is an event of historic proportions in the world of Heavy Metal that after seventeen years since the release of "Die Healing" (1995) SAINT VITUS now return with their eighth full-length masterpiece "Lillie: F-65". This album includes the trademark song writing style so beloved by SAINT VITUS fans: There is the cataclysmic and unmistakable guitar sound of co-founder Dave Chandler full of reverbs, feedbacks, flanger and apocalyptic distortion leading to amazing and magical solos. "Lillie: F-65" is furthermore graced with the deeply resonant vocals of Scott "Wino" Weinrich who returns to record an album with the band for the first time since the glorious "V" (1989) and whom many consider to be the classic SAINT VITUS vocalist. Doom adepts will delight in the honey slow dripping of notes and the sudden energetic outbursts, which are as painfully depressing as sweet.

Now in the year 2012, Seventeen years after their last album and nine years after their reunion, SAINT VITUS finally return with an album that will cement their status as true icons of Doom. The US legend is back and stronger than ever with "Lillie: F-65". Bow down and enjoy this soon to be SAINT VITUS classic!

Ufomammut - Oro: Opus Primum Vinyl LP

As with all previous UFOMAMMUT albums, the concepts behind Oro are expansive and multi-faceted, mutating the Italian palindrome which translates to “gold” with the Latin translation of “I prey.” Oro explores the concept of knowledge and its power; the magical stream controlled by the human mind to gain control of every single particle of the World surrounding us. Oro is the alchemical process to transform the human fears into pure essence; into Gold. Although Oro’s two chapters will be released months apart from each other, they must be considered as a single track in which the musical themes and the sounds show up and hide, mutating and evolving, progressively and increasingly stratifying culminating in the crushing final movement. Oro is like an alchemic laboratory in which substances are flowing, dividing and blending themselves in ten increments from the alembics and stills, culminating into the creation of Gold.

Witchfinder General - Friends Of Hell Vinyl LP

"“Friends of Hell” is the sophomore release by the short lived but newly resurrected Witchfinder General. This album reeks of killer riffs and solos that will have you humming for weeks. Witchfinder General offered a “balls to the wall” approach to heavy metal at the time – glorifying drug use, sex, and the occult shamelessly, also taking what Black Sabbath begun and making it catchier than ever!

This is a slight improvement compared to the timeless “Death Penalty” although other reviews might state the opposite. The composition has more direction compared to their previous release where it seemed they were more or less growing into their style. Phil Cope’s guitar playing is more solid, knowledgeable, and professional showing his improvement as a musician and as a songwriter. No longer are the solos put on the backburner, instead they are more declarative and in the front of the mix. Zeeb Parkes, while sounding too much like Ozzy Osbourne at times, shows his improvements by offering more harmonies, general direction, and standing apart from the guitar work as his own separate entity..."

"...“Friends of Hell” is an essential pickup for doom and traditional heavy metal fans. “Love on Smack” and “Friends of Hell” are just two of the many noteworthy tracks on this release where the solos and guitar work (dueled nicely with Parkes’ vocals) will kick your ass from beginning to end. ---metal-archives

Witchfinder General - Death Penalty Vinyl LP

Witchfinder General are a doom metal band from Stourbridge, England. They were part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal scene and have been cited as a major influence on the doom metal genre. Death Penalty is the debut album by NWOBHM band Witchfinder General. It was released in 1982 on Heavy Metal Records. The album received some criticism for the cover photograph, which featured topless model Joanne Latham. The photograph had been taken in the yard of St Mary the Blessed Virgin Church in Enville, Staffordshire, without the permission of the local Reverend. The album was originally released on LP and picture disc and was later reissued on CD. Pictured on the cover is Phil Cope, Zeeb Parkes, Graham Ditchfield and a member of the then Road Crew. While Peter Hinton is credited with producing this recording the writers Phil Cope and Zeeb Parkes always felt the credit should have gone to the engineer Robin George.

Brant Bjork - Jalamanta Vinyl LP

Desperate Kyuss fans looking for a recent fix will devour this platter like a 3 AM pizza. Never mind the stoner rock excursions from the frontmen, it is clear that the Kyuss sound has been passed on to the drummer. Brant Bjork rides that familiar trippy wave of psychedelic guitar for all it's worth, adding a soulful sound to the bouncy jams. And as expected, the drumming is simply stellar. It's almost like being there.---Cosmik.com

"JALAMANTA is easily in my top ten albums of all time. The only thing I dislike about listening to it is that it ends. Its just smooth groove after smooth groove. It almost reaches a euphoric level. I have had Jalamanta since its release and a week rarely goes by without several listens. It will be the soundtrack to my summer night smoke sessions, I can tell you that much. There is no one label that can be placed on this album. All I can say it that if you are a fan of rock music on any level, you should own this masterpiece. Brant is the man!"---StonerRock.com

Brant Bjork - Gods & Goddesses Vinyl LP

If you are already a fan, you will know what to expect but if you have never picked a album from Brant as yet, this may be the perfect album to start with. "The Future Rock (We Got It)" is a classic track and the perfect tune to groove to while kicking back with a cold beer or two. "Dirty Bird" is the typical but essential "Brant Bjork" opening cut, "Good Time Bonnie" and album closer "Somewhere Some Woman" has a slight Stoner Doom sound especially the later that has some slow, powerful riffing in the middle section and "Blowin Up Shop" has a relaxed and infectious vibe. The drumming is kept simple allowing the guitar to move and wander in a almost free-form fashion while Bjork's vocals move back and forth within the mix giving every song a slightly different vibe to the next and of course there is the essential wah-wah solos and the use of controlled fuzz. This is album number 27 that he has been involved with in one way or another making him one of the hardest working musicians to ever come out of the Desert Rock scene.

To put it a way longtime fans can understand, it’s the best one since the last one and until the next one. Whether Gods and Goddesses is the beginning of a new phase in Brant Bjork’s career or a one-time experiment in production that’s proved successful, its aural solidarity and confidence make it a must-hear for established followers and newbies alike.---music-is-amazing.com

Yawning Man - Nomadic Pursuits Vinyl LP

"As heard on such releases as Kyuss' Welcome to Sky Valley, Queens of the Stone Age's self-titled debut full-length, and just about any of Brant Bjork's solo releases, jamming has always been an integral part of the "desert rock scene" of California's Palm Desert. And the roots of these spacious and trippy jams can be traced back to a specific band, Yawning Man. While not well-known outside of the area, Yawning Man is often listed as an important early influence on the aforementioned bands/artists. And although the group never got around to issuing any recordings during their first go-round in the late '80s, come the early 21st century, original members Gary Arce (guitar), Mario Lalli (bass), and Alfredo Hernandez (drums) resuscitated Yawning Man, and began finally issuing albums...." "Nomadic Pursuits, which turns out to be an all-instrumental affair, chock-full of meandering jams that would probably serve as the perfect soundtrack for frolicking throughout the desert...if you were in an "altered" state of mind. As a result, tracks such as the album opener, "Camel Tow," as well as "Far-Off Adventure" and "Ground Swell" manage to somehow come off sounding both pre-planned and improvisational. Forget about succinct song structures here -- Nomadic Pursuits is all about kicking out the jams...and Yawning Man is happy to oblige." ~ Greg Prato

Yawning Man - Pothead 10" Vinyl

The unheralded godfathers of the desert scene, YAWNING MAN is the group that taught KYUSS how to throw generator parties and play great rock. KYUSS' "Catamaran" is actually a YAWNING MAN cover. Nothing official was released until 2005 (on Alone Records), presumably on the heels of the world's fascination with all things Homme. Alfredo Hernandez (KYUSS/QOTSA/BB & THE BROS) was ultimately replaced by Bill Stinson (any Chuck Dukowski/BLACK FLAG fans here?), with Mario Lalli bolting for FATSO JETSON, so yes, you can literally trace all the fathers of the desert movement to YAWNING MAN. Essential!

Zone Six / Vespero - The Split Thing Vinyl LP

This is the result of a collaboration between Transubstans Records, Russian act VESPERO and German act ZONE SIX. The first three tracks of this record consists of the atmospheric soundscapes of psychedelic space rockers VESPERO; a band that combines playfulness and joy with futuristic heavy rhythms. The great recordings of their works has helped capture their essence; a tight, thick wall of sound, allowing them to give synthesizers the space they need in songs like this. To sum VESPERO up: a great band whose work is very "airy" yet concentrated from time to time. You will be surprised! ZONE SIX is a band built up by members from the outstanding psychedelic space rock scene in Germany. Some of the key members of this band are Dave Schmidt (ELECTRIC MOON, SULA BASSANA) on the drums and Komet Lulu (ELECTRIC MOON) on bass and effects. Komet Lulu is also the mastermind behind the cover of this record. Combining different members from some of the best bands in Germany today (ELECTRIC MOON, THE PANCAKES, VIBRAVOID), ZONE SIX manages to create an extremely atmospheric sound that will explode deep down in your veins. Their featured track on "The Split Thing" is called "Babapapatantramanta" and provides the same hypnotizing emotions like the HAWKWIND albums of the early 70's did.
