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...

CONNY OCHS (Black Happy) CD/LP

May/13/2013

Conny Ochs' second solo album is a heartbreaking, simple, beautiful, strangely comforting piece of work. He goes deep into feelings but without sticky sentimentalism and his brilliance for soft, haunting, yet catchy melodies is well represented on 'Black Happy'...

CARAVAN OF WHORES (Road To Kurti) CD

Mar/12/2013

'Road To Kurti' is the second self-financed release from UK's CARAVAN OF WHORES and contains 4 tracks with a total running time of 31 minutes. Based on the band name, I thought that CARAVAN OF WHORES would play some sort of nasty sludge, but far wrong...

CHICKENCAGE EXPERIENCE (An Eggspoiltation Movie) 2LP + DVD/2CD + DVD

Jan/26/2013

Hidden behind the strange name CHICKENCAGE EXPERIENCE is the psychoactive German kraut-a-delic band Polytoxicomane Philharmonie, who teamed up with Austrian singer MichaeLa Flame to record a free improvisational shroom trip. I call it shroom trip because this is the story of Spacecop Goodbad who finds the extra-terrestrial crocodile Kroko Redd - and that's just for starters...

COLOUR HAZE (She Said) 2LP/2CD

Jan/07/2013

The times when COLOUR HAZE was walking in the footsteps of Kyuss are long gone. Over the last years, the band has undergone an exciting transformation with the result of being the leading German heavy psych rock band...

CHOWDER (Passion Rift) CD

Sep/30/2012

For a while it looked as if 'Passion Rift' had never been released due to several reasons, but luckily I, Voidhanger Records has realised that it would be a shame if CHOWDER's debut album would fall into oblivion. I see it the same way, because from the moment when guitarist Josh Hart (Earthride, ex-Unorthodox, ex-Revelation) had sent me the rough mixes of 'Passion Rift' it was quite clear to me that this album must see the light of day...

CAPTAIN CRIMSON (Dancing Madly Backwards) CD

Aug/09/2012

What would you expect from a band with the name Captain Crimson? Especially when they are that brazen and call their album 'Dancing Madly Backwards'. I mean, I could grumble about this and that...

CORTEZ (s/t) 2LP

Jul/22/2012

Still fresh in my mind is 'Thunder In A Forgotten Town' (review here), which was the debut MCD of Boston's CORTEZ. That release was more than 4 years ago and thereafter CORTEZ vanished from the scene...

CHILLIHOUNDS (Shake Your Skull) CD

Feb/27/2012

Have you ever asked yourself what it would sound like if AC/DC and The Cult had met to record an album? If so, then you should listen to the third full-length of Sweden's CHILLIHOUNDS. Of course, my vague description does not exactly meet the point, but shows the direction in which these cats are heading...

CHERRY COKE (A Night In The Arms Of Venus) LP/CD

Feb/20/2012

If there would be a retro-rock contest, CHERRY COKE's chances of winning the grand prize would have been pretty good. Founded in 2007 by Mathew Bethancourt (who is also known through The Beginning, Josiah and The Kings Of Frog Island), 'A Night In The Arms Of Venus' is CHERRY COKE's second record and it sounds as time had stopped in the year 1970...
