ACID KING (Middle of Nowhere, Center of Everywhere) LP/CD

Jan/22/2016

Let me start with a quotation from Lori S. about the new, fourth album of ACID KING: “Everything still feels like riding a motorcycle on Quaaludes, but things have expanded"...

WARHORSE (As Heaven Turns To Ash) 2LP

Jan/22/2016

At the time when 'As Heaven Turns To Ash' has been originally released (whichwas in 2001), Southern Lord Recordings was one of my favourite record labels. The reason for this is simple: Greg Anderson had shown a lot of good taste in choosing bands for his label...

ELDORADO (Babylonia Haze) LP/CD

Jan/22/2016

Who has not had enough of classic rock, should add ELDORADO on the list. Formed in Madrid in 2007, 'Babylonia Haze' is their fourth self-released full-length, and if you dig bands like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, early Rush and so on, than you'll probably love 'Babylonia Haze'...

PYRIOR (Onestone) LP/CD

Jan/22/2016

PYRIOR originate from Berlin and 'Onestone' is their latest album, released by Setalight Records / Fuzzmatazz Records at the end of 2014. The biography tells me that PYRIOR stands for "characteristic Stonerrock", but I have to disagree (not only because I dislike that term "stonerrock", which is one of the most stupid terms in the history of music next to "crust", "grunge" or "emocore"...

POMBAGIRA (Flesh Throne Press) 2LP/2CD

Jan/22/2016

If you have read my reviews for POMBAGIRA's first two albums than you know that I was never a huge fan of this English band. I liked their2009 album 'Black Axis Abraxas' more than the boring debut, but their new effort 'Flesh Throne Press' repeatedly reminds me how boring doom can be at the present time...

THE LONE CROWS (s/t) LP/CD

Jun/25/2013

Every now and then a band comes along, bringing us a great song, but only so often does a band bring us a great album. THE LONE CROWS has just done that with their debut album for German record label World In Sound...

CHURCH OF MISERY (Thy Kingdom Scum) LP/CD

Jun/25/2013

There were times when I was waiting eagerly for every new release from CHURCH OF MISERY. I also enjoyed their last album 'Houses Of The Unholy' (review here) at the time when it was released, but after a while I lost interest...

WATERWAYS / SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI / HOTEL WRECKING CITY TRADERS (s/t) Split 12"

Jun/24/2013

This colourful platter has been released by the Australian label Bro Fidelity Records and it features three bands from three continents. I think this sounds pretty good, because it will offer the interested listener a good possibility to explore unknown acts a little more closely...

THIS IS GHOST COUNTRY (s/t) LP/CD

Jun/19/2013

I was pleased to note that THIS IS GHOST COUNTRY has been signed by Christian Peters' Electric Magic Records. A few years ago, this German band has sent me their 'Red Desert Blues EP' (review here), and I enjoyed it...

THE TELSTAR SOUND DRONE (Comedown) LP

Jun/12/2013

Lately I read a review about 'Comedown' where the writer has pointed out that the moniker THE TELSTAR SOUND DRONE would be misleading, because their music doesn't have anything in common with bands as for example Sunn O))). Well, it seems as if that said writer is badly informed about that thing called 'drone'...
