Bonehawk: Iron Mountain LP (clear)

bone2

Bonehawk is again one of those bands whose music I have been supposed to get to know for ages and ages. It just happened that I didn’t even get the band’s previous album, Albino Rhino, before this latest one was released. Better late than never. As was the case with that Kitchen Witch record, too many records and so little time. The phenomenally beautiful hard rocking stoner album this surely is and will play on my audio equipment for a long time. Released by Cursed Tongue Records and available (pink-colored version) from the source, Kozmik Artifactz & band’s BandCamp site.



Psychlona: Venus Skytrip LP (blue)

psychlona

Got this latest from Psychlona from Cursed Tongue Records a few weeks ago. Now that I’ve been listening to it numerous times, I have come to the conclusion that I’m a complete idiot because I skipped their debut album two years ago.. Well, one record more added to my wantlist. Groovy, fuzzed space/stoner/psych and there’s no reason not to like this one. Awesome release from start to the very end. Deep bow in the direction of CTR, once again you have managed to release an outstanding package!

Since this record was released in collaboration with Ripple Music, Us customers can grab the red-colored variation (ltd. 100) directly from Ripple Music. EU customers can still grab the translucent orange version for example from Stickman Records, the blue version is sold out by now.



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!



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!



Sleepwulf: s/t LP (silver)

sleepwulfX

And then some 70’s influenced love, this time from Cursed Tongue Records. Once again outstanding package but what else can be expected from this label? The Band is Sleepwulf and this seems to be their debut release on vinyl format. Hard-hitting 70’s rock with a hint of doom aside, with this concept you just can’t go wrong. It seems that this sold out quite fast but don’t worry, there’s repress copies available via Cursed Tongue Records and Kozmik Artifactz. Go for it!



Marijannah: Istanah LP (transparent yellow)

Marijannah

Yep.. This band is also one of those I have managed to miss/skip earlier. The point is that there are so many amazing bands/albums floating around and I just don’t have time to check all those out, it’s just impossible. Cursed Tongue Records is one of those labels I follow closely and lately, I have purchased nearly everything the label has released. This latest from Marijannah came through CTR and obviously, I was interested (actually I purchased this album without hearing a note from it). And here it is, there’s always room for quality releases in my collection and this surely is one. At this moment seems that it’s quite hard to find a copy of this album but Stickman Records still have 1 red-colored copy.. and the band is selling cassette version on their BandCamp site if you fancy tapes (like I do).



Hazemaze: Hymns Of The Damned LP (mint green)

hazemze002

Here’s some 70’s influenced hard rockin’ stoner in your face! The band is from where else than Sweden, I wasn’t even surprised about that fact. This is Hazemaze’s second full-length and after listening to this several times in the row I’m forced to go after their debut one. This is released by mighty Cursed Tongue Records on mint green (sold out) and on orange vinyl. Orange version is still available from the source, CTR and via BandCamp. If you prefer cassette format better, head to the BandCamp site or Stoner Witch Records.

I got my copy with some corner damage on the cover (after treatment by beloved postal delivery), so I encourage myself to ask the label if they had some extra copies of the cover. And they did. Now I got me a pristine copy with a shiny cover. CTR was ready to send the cover without shipping charge but I was more than happy to handle those. An awesome record label, I appreciate!



 

Hemptress: Alchemy LP (CTR edition)

hemptress1

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 gone but you still can get a copy (on black wax) from the source, Cursed Tongue Records. Hell Yeah!



Hippie Death Cult: 111 LP (golden colored)

hippie

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 still purchase regular black wax via them (very limited stock). Golden variation sold out within minutes. Highly recommend, both band & label.



 

Devil’s Witches ‎– The Audio Erotic Collection 2xLP

devil's

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 how fast all those 500 copies vanished. Yeah, I love this record like all those 499 other lucky ones. Thanks to Cursed Tongue Records for bringing this alive (and for understanding my whining about those corner folds..). Greatness on vinyl format!



 

Palace In Thunderland: The King Of The Empty Aeon LP (gold)

palace_xx

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 available via Cursed Tongue Records, CTR edition (ltd. 100) & regular version (ltd. 300). Recommended release indeed!

 



 

Captain Caravan: Shun The Sun LP (transparent yellow)

caravan

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 the whole package is, yet again, pure gold. Limited to 100 copies on transparent yellow (sold out by now) and 300 on black wax (still available). Great record and recommended purchase. We all know where you should be heading right now..
