Lightsabres: Darkness On My Trail LP (white/black)

lightsabres

Lightsabres will never let you down. This is the sixth full-length from John Strömshed aka Lightsabres that I managed to include in my collection. From the very first full-length, Demons, I have bought all new albums without hearing a single note beforehand from those albums. Yeah, Lightsabres is that good. With mixing grunge, stoner, punk and psychedelic is a concept that can’t go wrong. Check out this one, and all his previous releases and you know what I’m trying to say. Released by DHU Records (one of my favorite record labels if you haven’t noticed..) and still available from the source & artist himself. Love & respect!



Sibyl: The Magic Isn’t Real 12″ (blue)

sibyl000

Woah! Just listen to those vocals on this twelve-inch record and you’ll understand why I have purchased this beauty. Strong psychedelic vibes on this doomed release by the band I haven’t heard of before, Sibyl . This release has been on heavy rotation lately and the only minus about this release is that it’s way too short. I want more! Thanks to DHU Records for introducing Sibyl and most of all, releasing “The Magic Isn’t Real” on vinyl. Still available from the source, DHU Records.



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!



Rough Spells: Ruins At Midday LP (pink/purple)

rough spells

Some love from DHU Records & Fuzzed And Buzzed. Here’s one hell of a record from Canadian heavy rocking stoner group, Rough Spells. I’ve known this band for a while now but haven’t actually checked their releases before this came out, what a shame. Really happy I bought this beauty. My loyalty to DHU Records forced me to purchase this DHU exclusive version,  even though there were Fuzzed & Buzzed and Band’s versions available. Sold out from DHU but Fuzzed And Buzzed have all tree variants still available. For EU citizens both record labels variants still available via Kozmik Artifactz (only one copy of each).



Shrooms Circle: Asylum LP (red/black merged)& 7 inch

DSC_6569 (4)

If I remember right, this was the first record I received via Postal delivery this year. Once again DHU Records managed to surprise me with an awesome release. I bought this one on cassette version a few years ago and if I remember right, there was some kind of crowdfunding project around this album (vinyl version) back then. That project never achieved its goal and the vinyl version was waiting to be released by some proper label in a distant future. So thanks to DHU Records for bringing this alive! Beautiful doomed stoner/psych album! This sold out from the source pretty fast so it could be a little hard to find a copy if you’re after one.. correct me if I’m wrong



 

Black Road: Witch of the Future LP (black & purple with cornetto effect)

black road

uuuhh.. Yet another great release from DHU, this time full-length from Black Road. This Chicago based band has managed to sneak into my heart & record collection quite easily. Few years back Dark Hedonistic Union released Black Road’s twelve-inch EP and I’ve been waiting since that release new material from the band (managed somehow to skip their 7″ inch, shame on me). Bluesy, heavy, fuzzed stoner with Suzi’s hypnotizing voice. Timeless beauty this surely is. Vinyl versions of this album are long gone, but some cassette versions are still available via band’s BandCamp site. Thank you DHU, for bringing these records to my life. And thank you Black Road, I will follow you where ever you’re going.



 

Horehound: Weight 8″ EP (clear lathe-cut)

 

Horehound

I know that this band has already released two albums but this eight-inch is the first I have bought / listened. Oh, and I’m loving it. DHU released this some time ago and after checking the band I had to have this (and obviously I’m going after those two full-lengths too). This awesome 8″ is limited to only 66 copies so I must say I’m lucky to have it. Have to admit that I was about to skip this release (shame on me) but came to my senses just before it was sold out. Nice one!



 

The Red Widows: Fuzzifixion 2xLP (striped beer/black/beer)

 


The Red Widows

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 after another, quality. This is DHU exclusive variation limited to 90 copies and surprise, surprise it’s sold out. You still can get your hands on other color variations from the label, straight from the band or from Kozmik Artifactz (for example). Go!



 

Sàbba: Pentacle 12″ (crystal clear/lathe cut) + CS

sabba

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 release.

Doomstress: Sleep Among the Dead LP (DHU edition)

doomstress_xx

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 edition available (ltd. 150). Check this out.



 

Witch Ripper / Brume: Split MMXIX LP (DHU edition)

brume.jpg

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.



Son Of The Morning: s/t LP (purple/black merged)

son

Shame on me, this arrived months ago and it took way too long to give a proper spinning time for this beauty. Talking about Son Of the Morning and their same titled debut long-play released by DHU Records. Mixing doom, occult rock and stoner this band can’t go wrong. I like this record, that’s why I bought it, simple as that. Still available via DHU Records (EU) or from the band’s BandCamp site (US). Since I have listened way much heavier & darkened music lately, I’m more than happy to give this a spin at the end of the day. You should do the same.
