Here’s a tape you should check out. Evilspeak with same-titled cassette. This CS is filled with grooving, doomed sludge/stoner and I love this one so much. Have to say that I’m really happy I bought this one and if you ask me, I would love to see this on vinyl too. Give this one a minute or two and you’ll see what I mean. Show your support and purchase the cassette from their BandCamp page. Nice one!!
DHU Records hitting hard once again. This time releasing a heavy fuzzed, doomed stoner album by The Red Widows. Actually, this one arrived some time ago but I’ve been sooooo lazy posting my new purchases here. Anyways, with this album, The Red Widows manages to wrap its haunting fingers around my neck while pulling me deeper and deeper into its fuzzed oblivion.. Great release from the great label. There’s a good reason why I keep purchasing DHU releases one […]
Better later than ever. The Graviators, I have come across the name of this group a few times but never bothered to check any of their records before. Been following some Facebook groups about stoner & doom and saw Robert Black (a guy behind one of my favorite DIY labels, DHU Records) posting a picture of this album there. After staring that picture a while I thought maybe I should check out this band at last. Damn! It was love […]
Ain’t this a nice piece of doomed/fuzzed stoner? Black Smokers is the title of the debut album by Canadian heavy monster, Lochness. The record label behind this evil abomination is called From The Urn. Earlier this year From The Urn released awesome album by Marécages and the decision to buy this one was quite easy. This “die hard” version is already sold out but there are a few regular black colored versions available from the band’s BandCamp page. If you like […]
Waited this one to arrive quite a long time and it didn’t help that it was stuck on customs a few extra days. Clouds Taste Satanic and their latest doomed/instrumental/stoner filled full-length. Found this band a couple of years ago and this one is the third album I got from this stunning group. Really nice package overall, splattered vinyl, patch, zippo-like lighter & rolling paper… This “Halloweed” edition is sold out but there’s a few other variations still available via […]
Creep Purple Records released this 3 cassette bundle from Black Magic SS last week and I purchased these tapes without knowing anything about this band or their music. The fact is that I have purchased all cassettes this label has released just because I trust blindly that I get quality stuff. And once again I was right. This band is awesome! As I mentioned before, this is a totally new group for me and I’m happy I managed to get […]
Holy sh**.. !! I picked this one from the local post office a few days ago (after paying taxes etc..). This is Firebreather, crushing doomed stoner monster, from (surprisingly) Sweden. Pure ear candy from the first track to the last one. Released by Riding Easy Records and this variation is limited to 75 copies (should have been red with black splatter but my version is more or less just red). All color variations still available from the source and if […]
Ha! Scored a Devil’s Witch release (on vinyl) the second time in a row! Maybe just because there are 700 copies floating around. Have to admit that I ordered two copies, from two different sources just to make sure that I get at least one pristine copy without corner dings etc. Well, I got one pristine copy even though I was worried when picking those packages from the post office, both records came packed in those “most” hazardous mailers (mailers […]
I almost skipped this little treasure when it still was available (actually I just had some issues with my budget at that time). Fortunately, I came to my senses and decided to invest my pennies in what I love. These guys from Canada have stolen my heart with their southern influenced, stoner fueled rock ‘n’ roll. The band sounds awesome and like so many times before Cursed Tongue Records have managed to release an outstanding record. This variant is long […]
Fourth album by this Swedish fuzz king, Monolord. Album after another this band manages to wrap me around its finger (or is that even a proper saying?). Damn, this album is fueled by fuzzy, doomed sadness… like that tittle of the album, there’s no comfort on this album. Brilliant release. This variant is limited to 100 copies and it’s long gone, but do not worry because there are plenty of not-that-limited variants available via Relapse US / Relapse EU. Certainly […]
And this beauty I bought via Cursed Tongue Records. This is Hippie Death Cult and this band sounds amazing overall! Now that I’ve listened to this album for a few weeks, I really do understand why this record collects praising reviews from every direction. 111 is fueled with soundscapes from the 70s, doom & stoner and with some grunge influences. This awesome package is released by Cursed Tongue Records (one of my favorite DIY labels out there) and you can […]
This instrumental stoner/sludge/doom abomination arrived earlier this week. I almost skipped this one because of term “instrumental”… Now that I got this here with me, I’m quite happy that I didn’t. Crushing & heavy this surely is and who needs vocals when the music itself is leading the story? Limited to 300 copies on transparent green vinyl. The band has sold out vinyl copies but there’s still cassette version available via their BandCamp site. I found at least one place […]
This is Dusty Duke playing bluesy, dirty/southern rock seasoned with a hint of country. Not bad mixture at all. My copy arrived last week and it has been under heavy rotation since. Troublemaker is Dusty Duke’s second release and that debut album is now on my “want list”. As far as I know, this is limited to 150 copies and still available via their BandCamp site and from Black Farm Records (debut & this second album available via both sources). […]
Missed this one 4 years ago, don’t ask me why because I can’t remember. Bought this via Discogs, from the same seller as that Holy Serpent album I posted about earlier. Single-sided twelve-inch record limited to 100 copies and released by STB Records. Three tunes filled with doomed sludge, so nothing can go wrong with this. Nice one.
Hey, what is happening here? Why I haven’t heard about this band before? Waingro has released two albums before this newest one and I’ve been out of the map with these recordings. Thanks to Sludgelord Records for releasing this third album and presenting this group to me.. Waingro hits hard with their stoner fueled, heavy rocking sound. You can purchase this via band’s BandCamp site and EU customers via Sludgelord Records. I have seen the light.
Truth is that when the vinyl is not an option, then you go for CS (really hope that someone out there would release this on vinyl). Old Horn Tooth with this doomed, noisy stoner/sludge-filled tape stole my attention immediately as I heard this tape via BandCamp. This green copy is from the first press (limited to 25 copies) and there’s also a second press released on purple cassette (also limited to 25 copies). The sad truth is that both versions […]
One of those records that I’ve been listening very closely the past couple of weeks. Lightning Born’s debut that arrived with Zed & Shotgun Sawyer from Ripple Music some weeks ago. Bluesy/stoner/hard rock is the field they are playing on. This “Astral Storm” version is still available from the source, Ripple Music. Those EU citizens who want to save some shipping cost can also purchase this album via Ripple’s EU store. I prefer US store… some of you may know […]
Finally, this debut album by Kongh has been on my “want list” for years and suddenly found a copy via Discogs for a very decent price. Even though this has been released 12 years ago it sounds quite fresh to me. Crushing doomed sludge or something.. I don’t care about labeling music for different genres. Brilliant record. This version is limited to 270 copies. Recommended one.
Earth Tongue and their loving psychedelic/garage mixed debut album. Have to say that this record is quite refreshing. I came across with this album via some stoner/doom/psychedelic chart, listened to it via BandCamp few minutes and decided to hunt down the psychical release. I managed to grab this “Inverted Eye” edition, limited to 250 copies. This beauty is released by Stolen Body Records and seems that there’s a second press available right now to pre-order. Go for it, I certainly […]
Managed to miss this one in 2015.. and I blame our beloved dog for that because I had to take it out for a piss and while I was standing there in the rain.. this die-hard edition was sold out. So I waited 4 years patiently until I found a copy with decent prize tag from Discogs. Psychedelic, stoner filled acid rock could be how to describe this album. This clear copy is limited to 100 copies and was available […]
Track number 2 and 11 seconds. Within those 11 seconds, I made my mind and bought this album. Kannabinõid comes from Estonia and this sludge/stoner/doom/metal-filled album has stolen my heart & soul. This album titled “3” seems to be their second full-length and what an album it is. Limited to 200 copies and available via their BandCamp site. Just check out this monstrous beauty, I’m going after their debut one. Special thanks to the one who packed & shipped this, […]
This box set by Eremit arrived nearly 6 months ago, shame on me… that I haven’t had time for this one until now. This one is heavy, and I really mean that. The band is from Germany and this is their debut album (and if you ask me, this is freaking amazing for debut album.. or album at all). I bought this box set (limited to 50 copies) via Transcending Obscurity and seems that they have sold out all vinyl […]
Got this latest full-lenght by Zed from Ripple Music some time ago. Once again a band I have never heard of before… Better later than ever. This kind of southern/stoner rock pleases me a lot and obviously, this has been in heavy rotation lately. This album (colored version, limited to 100 copies) is still available from the source, Ripple Music, and if you live on the old continent I suggest you to visit Ripple’s EU store (regular black wax available). […]
Doooooommmm.. got this one on vinyl & on cassette. Love this kinda ethereal doom or whatever you may call this. DHU Records released this on clear, lathe cut vinyl limited to only 66 copies (maybe that was little too limited run..). Aaarghh.. this must be one of the best releases I have heard by far during 2019. DHU Records has sold out this vinyl version (surprise) but Sludgelord still has this on cassette so you know where to go. Amazing […]
Cassettes, when these came available it was must-have thing to me. Got all these Conan releases on vinyl too, except one. Use to have that “Horseback Battle Hammer” on vinyl but.. sometimes when you’re short on cash you obviously end up doing things you will regret rest of your life. Anyways, if you’re missing some of these tunes you better act fast because the won’t last long: Horseback Battle Hammer, Blood Eagle and Revengeance (Existential Void Guardian is soldout from this source..). […]
Love at first sight.. but I have to admit that it took way too long to purchase this bluesy/stoner release from Shotgun Sawyer. Never been even near States but somehow this record manages to take me there.. weird, but must have something to do that bluesy sound. Really happy that I finally decided to grab this record. This is still available from the source, Ripple Music (US) and regular black version available from their EU shop (if you want to […]
Let’s start this marathon with some older release. This twelve-inch from Jex Thoth has been on my “wantlist” for ages and now it’s finally where it should have been years ago, in my record shelf. Got this cheap and in top condition (actually I was after another release and the seller had also listed this one for sale too). Awesome release indeed. Still missing their debut album, yeah I once had it but was stupid enough to sell it.. stupid […]
There should always be at least one Bongripper album in your collection, I got few. Purchased this from Kozmik Artifactz, little expensive but must buy just because the original version is little hard to find. One of a kind band with an enormous wall of sound. This color variation, limited to 200 copies, still available via Kozmik Artifactz. Oh, and Kozmik also have a repress of “Terminal” available if you haven’t noticed yet. Beauty.
Finally, pristine copy. I really like this record (well, that’s obvious because I bought it..twice). Doom/stoner hitting heavy & hard. I came across this record while checking out some stoner charts and it was love at first sight and now it has been on my playlist daily. Really don’t know the pressing amount of this purple version but who cares because there’s also regular black copies available. As said before, I bought this record twice. First version via the band […]
Somehow I have managed to avoid this band for some time, don’t ask me why because I have no idea. Was surfing around BandCamp and suddenly decided to check this album out. Well.. It took only a few minutes to purchase “Alruna” from Argonauta Records after listening to that first track. This one is heavy, doomed and at the same time so gooooood. Now that this band has stolen my attention, I must get their debut I have managed to […]
Synthwave/retrowave/space/prog/instrumental, whatever. Voyag3r is one of few bands I like to listen when it comes to this “genre”. This is their third album and third I own (that should tell you of my passion towards this group). Great package and that mask is superior (maybe I should wear it and take a run cross my neighbor back yard. now that the sun has set..). Anyways, great record this is and still available from Bellyache Records (on three different color variations). Check […]
And what about this monstrous abomination filled with filthy fuzz, moss, mushrooms, and some secret green stuff? Lucifungus from Australia with their debut album (correct me if I’m wrong) “Akuma Kin”. Doomed stoner rock/metal and Hell Yeah I freaking love this record! Some might say that this sounds like Canadian Dopethrone, but more you listen, more you know. F**king awesome release. This came through Black Farm Records some time ago and this color variation (limited to 100 copies) is long […]
Anyone who has ever come across with this blog of mine sure knows how unfortunate I have always been with this band and all their releases. Well, I have managed to grab a few releases on cassette format but this time luck was by my side.. or I keep thinking so. That F5 button was under heavy pressure at the time this compilation was about to be released. And finally, I was lucky enough to get a copy. It’s amazing […]
Little late with this one, have to admit. Ordered this debut full-length from Doomstress about 4 months ago from DHU Records but started spinning it just a few weeks ago (shame on me). Now that I have listened to this album numerous times, it keeps growing and that’s what I like. Great heavy Stoner album and great job from DHU that keeps releasing these beauties. Available from DHU Records, DHU edition is sold out but there’s still Bones & Rust […]
Hmm.. remember that saying, the grass is greener on the other side of the fence? Sometimes that’s just not true. I’ve known this band for years but never actually owned any of their records before this compilation of demos etc. Now I finally understand why Reverend Bizarre was, still is, such a respected band. This compilation is a great way to start an everlasting journey with the band I never bothered to check out earlier. Here we go now! Released […]
Numidia and their self-titled debut album. This Australian band combines elements of progressive & psychedelic rock with middle eastern blues or something and the result is outstanding. A really enjoyable record we got here. I know that these tunes are far from stoner & doom records I have been purchasing lately but oh boys & girls, time to time it’s refreshing to step outside the box. Limited to 300 copies on orange vinyl and still available via Nasoni Records & straight […]
Got this latest album (Evil Eye) by Clouds Taste Satanic last week. My second album from this doomed/stoner/instrumental outfit. Still a big fan of instrumental post-rock but haven’t been listening to that much of instrumental music lately. Some may say that this kinda music is boring but Clouds Taste Satanic (with their doomed view) takes the whole thing to the next level. Two tracks on this album and the atmosphere on both tracks is crushing. A beautiful record we have […]
Recently I went through some “monthly list” I came across while surfing around the net. Checked all the bands mentioned (well, I knew some of the bands already but then there were bands I had never heard before). No Man’s Valley was one of those. Holy hell, I love this record. Mysterious, melancholic, psychedelic, bluesy desert rock or something. After listening to the first track it was obvious that I have to purchase this one. Here it is now as […]
Totally new band for me. Heard this band for the first time via Cursed Tongue Records and the track called “Vicarious” forced me to listen more. After that, it was quite an easy decision to purchase the album. Not that traditional Stoner/doom band, they are mixing different elements to their music and it makes this album so refreshing. Great release from Cursed Tongue Records (like the fact that this label does not get stuck on some specific genre). This treasure is still […]
Hah, yet another split release (seems that I have to take back those previous words about not liking split releases). This arrived months ago and finally I have time to give this one proper spinning time. Quality package from DHU Records, once again. There’s still various versions available from the source, DHU. Get one (or more) while you still can because these will be gone sooner or later.
Even though I’m not that big fan of split releases, I had to purchase this one from Black Tomb / Crud released by Totem Cat Records. Filthy split mixed with darkened doom/stoner/death metal, in other words, beauty. Still available from the source, Totem Cat Records, TCR edition & regular edition.
Came across with this band via Bandcamp, listened only one track and I was sold. This doomed stoner/sludge album is filled with darkness & despair and surprise, I love it! Once again awesome band from Sweden and it makes me wonder how in hell that country can provide outstanding bands one after another… If you like getting lost in the darkness I suggest you to check this beast out, like I did. Now I just have to get my hands […]
This arrived a few weeks ago, Green Lung and their debut “Woodland Rites” on green/black marbled vinyl (well, in the picture it looks very black..). My story with this band started last year when I missed totally their cassette EP and I promised to myself that I will hunt down a copy somehow. Never got that cassette but now I got a full-length. A great record filled with occult/stoner/doom & hard rocking tunes. Funny thing with these releases by Kozmik […]
Yep, as you can see I managed to grab this one, split release by Mephistofeles & The Black Furs. Have to admit that 40€ was a little high prize to pay from this seven-inch but hey, it was released by Creep Purple (I love that label and all that work the guy behind it has done for promoting stoner-doom-psych etc. artists & music). Both bands playing dirty, filthy doomed rock’n’roll on this little record and I really suggest you to […]
And once again it has been way too long since I have updated this blog.. It does not mean that I have given up, it’s mainly because I don’t have that much time nowadays.. But let’s start with this cassette that arrived today. Ungraven.. waited for this to arrive so freaking long that I almost gave up but here it is. And if you didn’t already know, this industrial-blackened-heavy-sludge release has something to with Jon Davis (Conan).. Holy hell, I […]
This abomination arrived last week and I have kept it hidden in the basement since that day.. Blah blah, actually it has been right beside my turntable, waiting to get some serious spinning. That day was today. This ain’t nice record at all, it’s kinda abnormity of doomed death/sludge.. something sick and I just love it! This record is intended to be played at the highest possible volume and have to admit it’s quite purifying experience. Limited to 75 copies […]
Don’t know what’s wrong with the drinking water in Norway but yet again amazing stoner/hard rocking album from the country better know of its blackened metal scene. Had to choose between this album and some bills I was going to pay.. Well, it’s quite obvious how that went at the end. Band is mixing 70s sounds with hard rocking stoner and as we all know by now, that concept can’t go wrong. Cursed Tongue Records is behind this release and […]
“There’s no sunshine when she’s gone…” Well, this record hasn’t seen the sunshine and maybe it’s better that way. Raw & dirty, doomed stoner metal with creepy vocals. Band is Yatra and their debut album follows the name “Death Ritual”. I listened this album via BandCamp few times and find it interesting enough to spent some money on it. Darkened is the road they are following and I’m walking right behind. This album is released by Grimoire Records (US) and […]
More I listen to this more I find myself enjoying it. Taiga Woods, never heard of this norwegian band before but decided to order this with Absent’s album from Cursed Tongue Records (I really like the idea of releasing two albums at the same). Well, this psych/stoner/hard rocking record has earned its place in my record shelf. Don’t know but these groovy, fuzzy tunes are forcing me to move my legs across the floor. Limited to 100 copies on green […]
Now we are talking! Damn I love this fuzzed stoner/psych/doom album by swedish Silver Devil. In my opinion this album is so near perfection that I could cry, yes it’s that good. I remember that I took a sneak peek of their previous album when it was released and skipped that (can’t imagine what the hell was I thinking back then..). One more record to my wantlist though. Sadly this LP version is limited only to 100 copies which sounds […]
