JUMBO'S KILLCRANE

May/20/2004

Based in Lawrence, Kansas, math-sludge berserkers JUMBO'S KILLCRANE are back with a new release, the amazing "Carnaval De Carne" MCD. But they got more in store, than just being a simple sludge band...

SANTERIA

May/20/2004

SANTERIA is definitely one of the most interesting bands of the south of the USA. They describe their sound as southern tribal rock, what means that it's full of mystizism, trance-like drums and heavy riffs...

STEREOCHRIST

May/20/2004

Hungary got a small, but fine scene of heavy bands, who are influenced by doom-infected sounds. Mood was the premier band of this active underground, but they broke up...

VOODOOSHOCK

May/20/2004

During the last years the German heavy Doom scene has grown much stronger than ever before. VOODOOSHOCK are the next bright star, although they aren't exactely a German band, because the rythm-section is coming out of Switzerland...

M-SQUAD

May/05/2004

Does anybody remember the great BLOOD FARMERS? They've released one fantastic album on Hellhound Records in 1995, and it's a legendary release in doom metal circles. But that's history, and M-SQUAD has risen out of the ashes of BLOOD FARMERS...

JPT SCARE BAND

May/05/2004

The JPT SCARE BAND belongs to those legendary well-hidden under-underground bands from the early 70's, which never released any official album in this time, but thanks to Monster Records, who have discovered some old tapes of the JPT SCARE BAND and released them to all our pleasure. The music of the Scare Band was/is filled with loud and roaring guitar-jams, heaviest blues-laden power chords and a very jam-like atmosphere...

COLOUR HAZE

Apr/29/2004

COLOUR HAZE are one of the most exciting German heavy psych-rock bands of today, and with their latest album "Los Sounds De Krauts", they've released an amazing and trippy album, which seems like the missing link between old spaced-out 70's sounds and 90's heavy rock in the vein of Kyuss or Clutch f. e...

WALL OF SLEEP

Apr/28/2004

WALL OF SLEEP is the next Hungarian band in this update, and like the other here featured band Stereochrist, here are other ex-members of Mood in the line-up. The first life-sign of WALL OF SLEEP is the "Overlook The All" MCD on PsycheDOOMelic Records, which is an inspiring crossover between traditional heavy sounds like Count Raven or mid-90's Revelation, and COC or Down...

THE HIDDEN HAND

Apr/28/2004

After the sudden end of Spirit Caravan, Scott 'Wino' Weinrich formed a few month later a new band band under the banner THE HIDDEN HAND, together with his friends Bruce Falkinburgh (b. /v...

BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE

Apr/28/2004

BOHREN are a unique German band, which combines the merciless heaviness from bands as Winter or Saint Vitus without using heavy distorted downtuned guitars, with the melancholy of early Miles Davis stuff. The result of this crossing is very intense and not recommandable for impatient people, because you need time for the long-winding and dark tracks of BOHREN...
