OPIUM WARLORDS (We Meditate Under The Pussy In The Sky) LP/CD

Mar/24/2013

OPIUM WARLORDS is one of the numerous projects of former Reverend Bizarre bassist/vocalist Sami Albert Hynninen. Released in 2012 by Svart Records, 'We Meditate Under The Pussy In The Sky' has very little in common with cliched doom metal...

OBELYSKKH (White Lightnin') LP/CD

Nov/14/2012

Germany's OBELYSKKH had no luck with the record label Droehnhaus, who released the band's debut record 'Mount Nysa'in 2011, but that's actually not that bad if one considers that they have been signed by Exile On Mainstream Records. I'm pretty sure that it will help them to gain more attention...

OWL (Feaster From The Stars / Stone Loner) 7"

Oct/16/2012

I was introduced to OWL by Hazzard's Cure drummer Clint Baechle, because OWL is just one of many bands in which he is involved. This 7" has been released at the beginning of 2012 and offers two tracks which are heavily influenced by 1970's hard rock and vintage heavy metal (preferably from the UK)...

ODYSSEY (Abysmal Despair) CD

Jul/11/2012

With ODYSSEY's debut album 'Abysmal Despair', Transubstans Records prove yet again that they are always good for a surprise. In place of 1970's rock, ODYSSEY create a strange amalgam of noise rock, D...

OBELYSKKH (Mount Nysa) LP

Mar/12/2012

Who still remembers The Walruz? That band was more or less the precursors of OBELYSKHH, even if there are significant musical differences between both groups - but more about that later. 'Mount Nysa' is the debut record of OBELYSKHH that has been released in 2011 by the now defunctional German label Droehnhaus Records...

ORTHODOX (Baal) LP/CD

Aug/22/2011

After several trips into the world of jazz and experimental music, Spain's ORTHODOX return with their fourth album, 'Baal', to the heavier riff-oriented side of their music. This certainly does not mean that this album is full of catchy melodies, but it's definitely more accessible and almost easy to digest...

ORCHID (Capricorn) CD

Apr/14/2011

For me personally, ORCHID's debut album 'Capricorn' was one of the most anticipated releases of 2011. Already the first MCD 'Through The Devils Doorway' was a great start and let my mouth water...

ORANGE GOBLIN (s/t) 5CD Box Set

Feb/24/2011

2011 starts of well for all fans of ORANGE GOBLIN, because the first five albums have been re-released and re-mastered by Rise Above Records at the beginning of the new year. In the event that you don't want to buy each album, it is better to check out this limited box set because it includes exactly the same digipacks...

OJM (Volcano) CD

Nov/26/2010

Italy's OJM are a good example of a band that becomes better and better with each new release. Their debut album 'Heavy' was nothing more than an average heavy rock album, except for a few good songs, but the successor 'The Light Album' was a proof for the fact that OJM has more to offer...

OBSKURIA (Burning Sea Of Green) LP/CD

Apr/27/2010

Once again it's time to go back to the very early 1970's. Now, OBSKURIA give you the feeling that time has seemingly stopped and they are damn good at it...
