ELDORADO (Babylonia Haze) LP/CD

Jan/22/2016

Who has not had enough of classic rock, should add ELDORADO on the list. Formed in Madrid in 2007, 'Babylonia Haze' is their fourth self-released full-length, and if you dig bands like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, early Rush and so on, than you'll probably love 'Babylonia Haze'...

ELECTRIC TAURUS (Veneralia) CD

Mar/03/2013

What starts out with a slow and doomy riff reminiscent of Electric Wizard becomes a cool journey through the world of fuzzy, heavy music. 'Cause just in the moment I had made myself ready for another slow-mo Doom band, the band rocks out with riffs fulla 70s Heavy Rock groove that I had to start banging my head...

EAGLE TWIN (The Feather Tipped The Serpent's Scale) 2LP/CD

Dec/03/2012

EAGLE TWIN's new output is the follow-up to their 2009 debut album 'The Unkindness Of Crows'. Slight waves of feedback and throat-singing start the album before the drums propel the thick layers of fuzzy and bass-heavy guitar forward and build a shape-shifting colossus that stumbles forth and pulsates with heavy riffs and melodies...

ENABLER (All Hail The Void) CD

Dec/03/2012

ENABLER from Milwaukee take the good old dark metallic hardcore punk (you may call it "crust". ...

EL-THULE (Zenit) CD

Oct/27/2012

EL-THULE is based in Italy and yes, they are even singing in their native language, which is still a seldom fact in the heavy rock scene. On the other side it means I can’t have a closer look at their lyrics, but by checking the titles of the album like 'Pulsar', 'Quaoar', 'Phobos' or 'Deimos' I assume that their favorite theme regarding the lyrics is… space! But don’t nail me down on that statement...

EARTHEN GRAVE (s/t) CD

Aug/22/2012

For whom does the bell toll but the curious listener that it introduces to the sonic world of Earthen Grave, both song and name of the new playground of former Trouble bassist, Debris Inc. co-founder and short-time Goatsnake member Ron Holzner and Jason Muxlow of the Living Fields...

ELECTRIC ORANGE (Netto) CD

Jul/04/2012

Since 20 years ELECTRIC ORANGE keep the flame of psychedelic krautrock lit and their latest album 'Netto' shows that they are still bursting with ideas and inspiration. Released in 2011 by Sulatron Records, 'Netto' is a monument of trippy, improvised, instrumental soundscapes that possesses a heaviness without an over-reliance on the blues or a dependency on rock cliches...

ETT ROP PÅ HJÄLP (Hur Svårt Kan Det Vara?) CD

Jun/02/2012

It was not long ago that I complained about the increasing lack of creativity among 1970's heavy rock revivalists and suddenly ETT ROP PÅ HJÄLP appear out of nowhere with their debut album and give me the opportunity to think again. Thanks guys! To say that ETT ROP PÅ HJÄLP do everything differently would simply be a lie, but they have a decisive advantage over some of their companions...

ELECTRIC MOON (Lunatics Revenge) LP

May/01/2012

Fasten your brain cells! 'Lunatics Revenge' is a truly rewarding experience of exploring kraut-a-delic sonic galaxies. Germany's ELECTRIC MOON mix their style of rock with intense improvisational pieces and hypnotic rhythm patterns...

ELKS (Destined For The Sun) MCD

Mar/13/2012

This is the first release by this New Yorker band, and I must admit that everything about 'Destined For The Sun' sucks. Not only is the music damn near unlistenable and boring, but the vocals make things worse...
