Wolftooth: Valhalla LP (white)

wolftooth000

Cursed Tongue Records released this latest from Wolftooth about three months ago. I remember promising myself after their previous album that I’m not going to miss their possible upcoming album in the future, I didn’t. The thing is that this record is pure Heavy Metal from first to last note. Old school metal that has nearly nothing to do with the word “stoner”, and that’s fine! These gentlemen know what they are doing and I’m enjoying the result. The awesome package overall, thanks to CTR for releasing quality records one after the other! Sold out from the source but Kozmik Artifactz still has some blue variants available, hurry!



Arteaga: Vol II Dios Sol LP (pink) + 7″

arteaga1000

Some psychedelic stoner/doom from South America, Chile. Alltough I have no idea what is being sung on this record, I don’t actually care. This is a groovy, catchy fuzzed stoner vibes filled record and that’s enough for me. It’s nice to see bands like Arteaga taking their places within this scene. I’m more than happy finding these new (for me new..) stoner outfits stepping out of the shadows. Available from Interstellar Smoke Records. Expand your mind listening to Vol II Dios Sol!



The Goners: Good Mourning LP (blue/white with black splatter)

gonersXX

And then some Swedish knowledge… This is the debut album by The Goners (well, we all know that these dudes have been in scene some time but that’s a different story). Garage, hard rock..? Who am I to say what’s the best genre to place this album, main point after all is those tunes engraved in the grooves of this nice looking vinyl release. Rock’n’Roll at it’s best. Available via RidingEasy (US), (EU) and for example from Kozmik Artifactz.



LáGoon: Maa Kali Trip 12″ (orange/black)

00_goon

Uuhh.. This band and their latest release “Maa Kali Trip” is some kind of twisted spawn of garage/surf/stoner band from hell playing disturbed hits from the underground.. or something like that. And it sounds brilliant! I know I will get rid of unwanted guests at the next barbecue party when I put this record on my turntable with max volume! Let’s take a trip with LáGoon! Available from the source, Interstellar Smoke Records. Recommended!



Frayle: 1692 LP (black/gold)

frayleX

Let’s not forget this beautiful & crushing album by Frayle. I first came across with this band last year and those haunting vocals brought me back to this band and their latest full-length. Have to admit that I like the darkness wrapped around this release. I suggest you to check this out if you haven’t already. First pressing seems to be sold out by now but for your information, there’s 2nd pressing available via Lay Bare Recordings (EU) & Aqualamb Records (US).



Birdstone: Seer LP

birstone000

Here’s some modern heavy blues to your ears. I came across with Birdstone sometime at the end of last year and fell in love with this album. Beautiful record from start to the very end. This album is filled with modern blues/psychedelic/ritual rock and maybe there’s some stoner tunes hidden between notes. Highly recommended album this surely is.  Available from the Band.



The Hypnagogics: Endless Nights LP (smokey)

hypnagogicsX

This album by Hypnagogics came out via Majestic Mountain Records earlier this year. Strong hard rocking, stoner album from this Swedish group. Oh, this is also their debut album which is a little hard to believe. Those guitars on this release.. awesome.  Endless Nights is sold out from the source and seems that you have to turn to Discogs / Ebay if you wanna grab a copy which I recommended from the bottom of my heart.



Häxan: Aradia LP (gold with white)

haxan000

Woah, yet one super cool sounding release from DHU Records. I bought this one via Kozmik Artifactz just because missed this one while it was available from the source (sorry!). The band seems to be from Canada and that’s quite everything I know about this group (have use google just to find out some more information). The thing that stole my attention on this album is the singer and her voice that intertwines every note together, creating a whole that approaches perfection. Sold out from the source and seems to me that it’s quite hard to find a copy within EU borders now, but don’t worry because Fuzzed And Buzzed (CA) still has some copies available!



Stonus: Aphasia LP (gold)

stonusXX

Holy shit this album is beautiful! This beauty waited a little too long for my attention but now that we have spent some quality time together, the connection is growing stronger day by day. Originally from Cyprus and nowadays based on London, this group is one to follow. For a debut album, this is a brilliant piece of art. Sol out from the source, Electric Valley Records, and other sources but seems that Sound-Effect Records still have some copies floating around, grab one while you still can!



Mammon’s Throne: Forward Unto Flame LP (splatter)

mammoth

Here’s some heavy riffs straight to your face. This Melbourne based doomed/stoner outfit is delivering us some crushing tunes with their debut album. Released by Black Farm Records a few months ago and it has been under the stylus numerous times during the past couple of weeks. Highly recommended if darker/heavier stoner/doom makes you stomp your feet. This awesome looking version and other color variant still available from the source, Black Farm Records. Check this out!



Uubbuurruu: s/t LP

uuuuuubbuuu

Uubbuurruu, quite interesting name for the band. This group is from Montreal, Canada and I love their 70’s sounding hard rocking stoner influenced performance. This band & album is one of those BandCamp treasures I come across occasionally. And I have to admit that cover art had something to do with the listening decision when I came across with this one for the very first time. Great album and you still can get a copy via their BandCamp site if you’re interested.



Pastor: Unveil LP (white)

00pastor

Yeah, one of my favorite albums by far this year. Pastor is mixing some awesome 70’s hard rock influences with stoner/psychedelic. Brilliant record and it has been under the needle nearly everyday since I got my copy. Quality release from Cursed Tongue Records once again. Sold out from the source, but you still can get your hands on regular version via Kozmik Artifactz. Grab a copy while you still can!
