BLACK SCIENCE (An Echo Through The Eyes Of Forever) CD

Mar/23/2013

Hailing from Seattle, BLACK SCIENCE are four fellows who really treat the listener to a sonic wonderland with their self-financed second album. 'An Echo Through The Eyes Of Forever' rewards repeated listening, and I say this from my own experience...

BLOODY HAMMERS (s/t) LP/CD

Feb/13/2013

Due to the band name, I expected some sort of cool Roky Erickson worship but all I got was just another slice of brainless occult rock that doesn't rock. But the silly cover artwork should have warned me about the content...

BAD BOAT (Lonely Doom) 12"

Feb/04/2013

What the hell? I thought I was pretty informed about the Doom stuff that happened in the first decade of this century, but I think I have never heard of Bad Boat. This EP,  that is somewhat about 26 minutes long, is a re-release of their last work...

BLOOD RED WATER (Tales Of Addiction And Despair) MCD

Oct/31/2012

Italy doesn't spring immediately to mind when I think of sludge. To change that, BLOOD RED WATER have been formed in 2010 and this is their first 5-song debut, aptly titled 'Tales Of Addiction And Despair'...

BLACK MAGICIAN (Nature Is The Devil's Church) LP/CD

Oct/27/2012

Whooooo. ...

BLOOD OF THE SUN (Burning On The Wings Of Desire) LP/CD

Oct/23/2012

The fourth full-length of Texan hard rock machine BLOOD OF THE SUN is one of my most anticipated 2012 albums. While other bands try to replicate the sound of the 1970's (with varying degrees of success), BLOOD OF THE SUN distills out the essence of heaviest 1970's rock and transfers it to the present day...

BEDEMON (Symphony Of Shadows) 2LP/CD

Oct/15/2012

Sometimes miracles still do happen: in this context I refer to the legendary U. S...

BALERO (One Planet Short Of The Sun / After The End) CD

Aug/30/2012

Receiving two BALERO albums at the same time, I felt sophisticated enough to break boundaries and do some brand-new and very special, so watch out, here comes – for the first time - the two-albums-in-one review of BALEROs 2006 EP 'One Planet Short Of The Sun' and the succeeding release 'After The End'. They are an instrumental outfit, consisting of Shawn Lopuhowsky on guitar and Jim Comitz on bass...

BLUES PILLS (Bliss) 10"

Jul/20/2012

This new band, consisting of musicians from Sweden, USA and France (featuring ex-members of Radio Moscow and the current drummer of Dead Man), should be at the forefront of the 1970's blues rock retrospective going on in the heavy music scene right now. BLUES PILLS' debut 10" explains why this should be the case...

BOTTOM FEEDER (s/t) 7"

Jun/20/2012

This is the first 7" from this Danish band, released by Raw Birth Records in 2012. You'll find bulldozing sludge with lots of heavy riffs, a bit of doom, and the necessary hostility...
