DxBxSx (Ihr! Alle! Immer!) LP/CD

May/13/2013

After the successful release of the previous album 'Zugriff' (review here), Berlin's DxBxSX is back with another full-length, which picks up seamlessly from where its predecessor left off and again wins me over with its humor, anger and rough charm. Again, DxBxSx are sounding stripped down and raw, but this rawness is a perfect compliment to these 12 songs...

DEAN ALLEN FOYD (Road To Atlas) 10" EP

Mar/11/2013

After releasing their debut album 'The Sounds Can Be So Cruel' (review here) in 2012, Sweden's DEAN ALLEN FOYD don't waste much time and start in 2013 with a new five-track 10" EP. With 'Road To Atlas', the band goes increasingly deeper into the psychedelic matter...

DIAGONAL (The Second Mechanism) LP/CD

DAWN OF WINTER (The Skull Of The Sorcerer) 12" EP

Feb/19/2013

For me, Germany's Dawn Of Winter will always will be linked to my Doom awakening so to speak. In times before the big boom of the early years of this century, I could barely get informations about Doom from the interwebs and just found most of the infos in my old German Metal magazines and bought literally everything I could get from local record stores...

DEAD SOUTHERN BISHOP (Hymns Of Malice And Discontent) MCD-R

Nov/21/2012

DEAD SOUTHERN BISHOP introduce themselves as the heaviest band from southern Georgia and bring along their 5 song EP 'Hymns Of Malice And Discontent' to prove that bold statement. They waste no time and hit it off with 'Last Rites' and a chugging mid-tempo riff...

DEVIL (Magister Mundi Xum / The Noble Savage) CD

Oct/25/2012

Rain, thunderstorm, the sound of a galloping horse, the shrill creaking of an old wooden door. ...

DARSOMBRA (Climax Community) LP/CD

Oct/17/2012

When I looked at the cover artwork of 'Climax Community', I thought that Exile On Mainstream Records has released the first black metal album, but after looking at the info sheet I realized that this is the new album of DARSOMBRA. I remembered that I already wrote a review about the last full-length 'Eternal Jewel' and that was four years ago...

DSW (Dust Storm Warning) CD

Oct/15/2012

Hailing from Italy, 'Dust Storm Warning' is DSW's debut album and offers new stuff for all fans of Unida, Kyuss, Acrimony and Sixty Watt Shaman. Basically, I could end the review now, if there were not the band's penchant for instrumental jam sessions...

DUST (Distortion Empire) LP + CD

Jul/28/2012

Dust is a well-known name in the German Doom scene. The guys are around since 1998, that makes 14 years of "Psychoaggressive Doom" as they call it, and lots of shows made me wonder, that this years 'Distortion Empire' is just their third full-length...

DEAN ALLEN FOYD (The Sounds Can Be So Cruel) LP/CD

May/05/2012

I said recently that I'm oversaturated by retro rock in all its facets. What once was refreshing has turned into a stale trend...
