RUNNAMUCKS (Deficit Of Dreams) LP/CD

Jan/07/2013

Hailing from Florida, 'Deficit Of Dreams' is the latest release of RUNNAMUCKS who have been around for many years. This time the band released the new album via Ripping Records in 2013, which is the record label of RUNNAMUCKS vocalist/guitarist Josh Dobbs...

RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON (Echo Forever) CD

Dec/22/2012

Named after a television series from the 1950s, RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON is an instrumental power trio which is located in Eindhoven, Netherlands. 'Echo Forever' is their second self-released album and offers the listener seven songs where you find influences from Monkey 3, 35007 and of course Kyuss...

REALMBUILDER (Fortifications Of The Pale Architect) CD

Oct/27/2012

For those unfamiliar with the work of New York's epic metal duo REALMBUILDER, they don't offer the usual heavy metal fare. These guys have created an individual sound which is best described as an eccentric blend of doom-tinged heavy metal riffs, epic song structures and clean vocals...

RANCHO RELAXO (Happy Friday Experiment) CD

Aug/07/2012

I fail to understand why it took so long until I finished this review about the new album of Norway's RANCHO RELAXO. The music cannot be the reason, because already the previous album, 'New Kind Of Orchide', (review here) was very pleasing to my ear...

REINO ERMITANO (Veneración Del Fuego) CD

Jul/29/2012

My favorite band from South America is back with a new album. The Peruvian doomsters Reino Ermitaño release their first album with the new guitarist Eloy, which is their fourth full-length already...

RHINO BUCKET (Who's Got Mine?) CD

May/26/2012

Long before bands like Airbourne or 77' paid homage to AC/DC, there was RHINO BUCKET who never made any secret about their predilection for Australia's world-famous rock group. Formed in 1987 by Georg Dolivo (lead vocals, guitar), RHINO BUCKET released six albums between 1990 and 2009 plus 'Who's Got Mine?' that dates from 2011...

RITUALS OF THE OAK (Come Taste The Doom) LP/CD

May/18/2012

This is already the second album from Australia's most popular traditional Doom band, Rituals Of The Oak. As there is no typical Aussie Doom sound, so to speak, the band sounds more European than American...

ROTOR (Festsaal Kreuzberg) LP/CD

May/01/2012

ROTOR's first live album is just the right thing for people like me, who so far hadn't the opportunity to see this Berlin band live. For one thing, 'Festsaal Kreuzberg' shows that these guys really flourish on stage...

RISING (To Solemn Ash) LP/CD

Dec/13/2011

Rising were unknown to me until I received their promo-CD. But the Danish band must have done something interesting and right to get on the radar of Exile On Mainstream Records who present their first "Metal"-release with Rising's debut 'To Solemn Ash'...

RISE AND SHINE (Empty Hand) CD

Jul/24/2011

Jeez, this is already the fourth album by Rise And Shine. This surprising fact led to two strange findings on my side...
