Took a little longer than I expected to include this one to my collection. Strangers by Obsidian Sea had been on my “wantlist” since it was released and now I managed to grab this multicolored version via Ripple Music’s sale about a month ago. Name of the game here is stoner/doom with obvious 70’s influences. Vocal work on this album reminds me of something so familiar but I just can’t figure it out.. Recommended one this surely is. Still available […]
A few years back I purchased Lunar Funeral’s “Sex On Grave” on cassette via Hellas Records (if I remember right) and been digging it since the day the tape arrived. I also have to admit that this band is one of few Russian stoner/doom outfit I have ever heard of. Anyways, Forbidden Face Records has put out this beautiful album on vinyl recently and surprise surprise I just had to purchase this wax version too. My copy is one with […]
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 […]
As usual, I’m a little lazy when it comes to split releases but when I spotted this Cough / Windhand split via Discogs,, I just couldn’t help myself, Bought this as used and got it in pristine condition, great score if I may say. Brilliant release and if you listen very carefully you can even hear me rubbing my dirty hands with joy!
Still Remember missing this one when it was released on cassette format. I was even ready to purchase it via Discogs at a premium price if only it would have been available lucky I didn’t. Quite honestly I didn’t expect this to be released on vinyl but here it is now. I purchased this color variation just because it looked quite nice. Still available via Kozmik Artifactz. Great band!
Some dirty stuff from Argentina. About a year and a half ago I bought The Black Furs debut album via Golden Dawn Recording and that filthy doomed sound is still alive and breathing! I got me this green variant and bought also cassette version, so that might tell how much I like this album. There’s something strange happening in Argentina for sure, first Mephistofeles and now The Black Furs. Both versions of this album (cassette & vinyl) were available via […]
The third album I have managed to get from this freaking beautiful band (missed that previous one..). Merlin has traveled so far from their first album, there’s saxophone, flute, accordion, trumpet.. and still this is Merlin. The outstanding album floating somewhere between space/stoner/psychedelic/doom & stoner. The Company records have managed to release a marvelous package and I have to say it’s worth every penny I invested in it. Splattered one is sold out but you still can get yellow variation […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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..). […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
“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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Wow! Here we have little heavier release. Brazilian Absent with their debut release “Towards The Void”. Psychedelic Funeral Doom as band itself describes their music on their BandCamp site. I agree even though the end of the third track goes straight to blackened metal. Brilliant! Thanks to Cursed Tongue Records for bringing this alive on vinyl format. Dark & hopeless this record surely is but that’s what makes it so beautiful. This limited version is gone from the source, Cursed […]
Holy shit what a killer release from this Australian stoner/doom outfit! Big thanks to Black Farm Records bringing this alive on vinyl format. This record is heavy and filled with hopeless darkness. Little do I know about this band but they have released two cassettes before this album (actually there’s two tracks included on this album from their previous cassette release “Women of The Wand”). This vinyl version is sold out but I suggest you to purchase that “regular” version […]
This doomed one moves as slow as tectonic plates (embraced by eternal darkness) deep under the surface of the earth. Ommadon and their perfectly titled latest album, “End Times”. With only two-track on this album and they manage to crush your little life down under the ground. Never heard about this band before this album I came across while surfing around BandCamp. As said before this slow, crushing doomed (sludge) record keeps grinding your fragile bones slowly to dust. Limited […]
I’ve been overwhelming unlucky with vinyl releases of this band, every damn time. So, I went for these CS versions and finally the sun decided to turn its face to me. Bought these via Golden Dawn Recordings and finally I understand why people are after releases of this band, these are freaking brilliant! Stoner/psych/doom.. don’t really care about categories, I rather just listen the tunes and let my ears make decisions. My hairy ears are in love. Cursed Tongue Records […]
Been a while but still here. This latest from Domkraft was one of the last albums I got last year. Was after that most limited version but got tired of hunting it so I ordered this color variation (makes me wonder why in hell I always try to get that most limited version..). Third album I own from this awesome doom/space/sludge group, and still loving every tune they put out. Hypnotic release with awesome illustration. This color version is limited […]
Found this, nearly pristine, copy of Elder’s first record from local record store. Have to admit that this band has been hiding in the darkness on my doomed path. Now that I’m listening to this album I just keep wondering how have I managed to avoid this band for so long. Maybe some day soon I learn from my mistakes. Timeless psychedelic-doomed-stoner album and place in my record rack is guaranteed. And what’s best, I didn’t pay myself sick when […]
Took a little while to arrive but finally it’s here (got me some extra seven-inch for compensation). What can I say, damn good record with same elements of dirt & danger as all previous albums. Love this record and it goes straight to my top 10 records of this year. There’s no band like Dopethrone and obviously some groups try to follow their filthy footsteps.. but there’s one to rule them all. Pow to the King! This colored one (Totem […]
