PYRIOR (Onestone) LP/CD

Jan/22/2016

PYRIOR originate from Berlin and 'Onestone' is their latest album, released by Setalight Records / Fuzzmatazz Records at the end of 2014. The biography tells me that PYRIOR stands for "characteristic Stonerrock", but I have to disagree (not only because I dislike that term "stonerrock", which is one of the most stupid terms in the history of music next to "crust", "grunge" or "emocore"...

POMBAGIRA (Flesh Throne Press) 2LP/2CD

Jan/22/2016

If you have read my reviews for POMBAGIRA's first two albums than you know that I was never a huge fan of this English band. I liked their2009 album 'Black Axis Abraxas' more than the boring debut, but their new effort 'Flesh Throne Press' repeatedly reminds me how boring doom can be at the present time...

PATHS OF PRAKRITI (Axis Mundi) CD

If I ever have problems to fall asleep or if inner restlessness is spreading, then I will listen to 'Axis Mundi' in the near future. And that's not meant in a negative way at all...

PENTAGRAM (When The Screams Come) DVD

Oct/16/2011

A PENTAGRAM DVD was long overdue and there could be no better time for the release than 2011 because this year marks the 40th anniversary of the band. But if you take it accurately, the first phase of PENTAGRAM ended in the very late 1970's...

PYRAMIDO (Salt) CD

Aug/14/2011

PYRAMIDO is without a doubt one of the best newcomers to the sludge scene. With their promising debut, 'Sand', they created a basis on which to build and that is why I was very curious to hear the next effort...

PREMONITION 13 (13) LP/CD

Jul/17/2011

Over recent years, Scott 'Wino' Weinrich has turned into a workaholic and there's nothing wrong with it because he is brimming with creativity. Instead of repeating himself he is treading new paths as impressively proven with his acoustic album 'Adrift' which is truly a masterpiece...

PENTAGRAM (Last Rites) LP/CD

Apr/27/2011

Who would have thought seven years ago that Victor Griffin and Bobby Liebling would reunite under the name PENTAGRAM just to record a new record? Not me. Even as recently as 2 years ago, PENTAGRAM consisted of Bobby Liebling, Russ Strahan, Gary Isom as well as Mark Ammen and it seemed as if this lineup would record the upcoming seventh album entitled 'Last Rites'...
