HEAT (Old Sparky) LP/CD

Dec/18/2012

This album is not only the debut of HEAT, but also the second release from Electric Magic Records, a new German label that is runned by Christian Peters, who some might already know from Samsara Blues Experiment as well as from the Electric Magic webzine. He proves good taste with HEAT who have committed themselves to the heavy rock of the 1970s...

HOWLIN' WIDOW (s/t) 7"

Nov/04/2012

You better quit while you're ahead - this could be the slogan of HOWLIN' WIDOW. Hailing from Northern Ireland, the band existed only for 4 years (2007 - 2011) and never released a full-length but only a demo, an EP and this self-titled 7"...

Hyne is a new Stoner 5-piece from Hamburg, Germany. '3000' is their debut and it leaves me undecided, even after half a dozen runs...

HORSE LATITUDES (Awakening) 2LP/CD

May/28/2012

Awakening!? Are you kidding? While listening to HORSE LATITUDES' second album, I feel more like a sailor on a three-masted ship that got caught in the legendary horse latitudes. That is a region between the northern and southern hemisphere where almost always calm prevails...

HORN OF THE RHINO (Grengus) CD

To say it in advance: Bilbao's HORN OF THE RHINO deliver a sound that is at least as huge as the demonic cock on the cover. Released in 2012 thru Doomentia Records, 'Grengus' is a solid mix of death metal and sludge...

Over the last years, Tony Dallas Reed has become a workhorse in the heavy music scene. Bit by bit, his field of activity expanded...

HORISONT (Second Assault) LP/CD

Apr/28/2012

There have been times when it was something new to recreate the hard rock of the 1970's. But as usual it has become fashionable and thus the element of surprise is gone, not to mention the fact that more quantity doesn't mean more quality...

HAZZARD'S CURE (s/t) CD

Feb/22/2012

The good thing about Oakland's HAZZARD'S CURE is that no-one can claim they are in anyway generic or predictable. In fact, their interpretation of sludge is highly enjoyable and energetic...

HIGHGATE (Shrines To The Warhead) CD

Apr/23/2011

Following up their good 2008 self-titled debut, Kentucky's HIGHGATE return with pretty much more of the same. Well ok, this time there are four tracks on the new album instead of just one, but three of them clock in at around thirteen minutes...

HILLS (Master Sleeps) LP/CD

'Master Sleeps' is the second album from Gothenburg's HILLS and also one of the latest offerings from Transubstans Records. Due to the record label it should be clear in what direction we are heading...
