Kitchen Witch: Earth and Ether LP (red/orange blob + black splatter)

kitchen000

Here is one of this week’s winners. Because of my working hours, I lately haven’t had that much time to listen to my latest purchases. This latest from Kitchen Witch (as well as other recent additions to my collection) has been gathering dust while waiting to have some quality time under the needle. The mistake has been corrected and I’m in love with this Australian band. Groovy, bluesy stoner/desert rock combined with beautiful vocals. Highly recommended one and still available from the source, Kozmik Artifactz.



King Buffalo: Dead Star 12″ (red)

kingbuffaloX

I bought this twelve-inch from King Buffalo nearly 5 months ago but managed to placed it under the needle just a few weeks ago. Holy shit this band floats in its very own category. Mixing all possible genres; stoner, space, psychedelic, kraut, blues, etc. creating something so unique you just can’t ignore. Brilliant piece of wax forcing me to hunt all their previous releases except that split with Lé Betre I already have in my shelf. Awesome band! Grab a copy straight from the band!



Fulanno: Velas Negras LP (black candle)

00_fulanno

More stoner/doom from South America, this time we have Fulanno from Argentina with their awesome debut on vinyl format, Velas Negras. Yes, this record is stuffed with slow, acid filled doom/stoner and I really like this kind of soundscapes. No idea about lyrics on this album but I think they are not singing anything about birds & flowers. Sold out from the source, Interstellar Smoke Records so the only places where to hunt this slow, evil release are Ebay & Discogs.. and prizes on those platforms are what they are..



Midnight Gallows: Attack Warning Red LP (blue/orange mix)

mignight

Some freaking filthy stoner/doom from Canada by Midnight Gallows with their album titled Attack Warning Red. Surprise, I like this album a lot. I can’t remember how I found this band & album, was it some tip from another sludge/stoner/doom fan or did I just come across with it while surfing around BandCamp? Who knows. Although the album is filled with heavy riffs, dirty, doomed stoner / sludge there are also some moments of beauty hidden beyond all this crease & filth. Highly recommended vinyl release and you can get a copy (ltd.200) via Wasted Wax Records or straight from the band!



Vestjysk Ørken: Full Dark No Stars LP (black)

vestjysk000

In my teens, it was quite common to buy a record from the record store just on the basis of cover art. Have to admit that it wasn’t the best way to choose your purchase. Today, those basics have changed a bit but if the band releases an album titled “Full Dark, No Stars” ..I’m sold. Only this time the title sums up the whole record perfectly. Vestjysk Ørken manages to create a very gloomy worldview with their psychedelic Instrumental space rock. Brilliant album and still available via Interstellar Smoke Records!



Spacegoat: Superstition LP (purple)

spacegoat

Ha, here’s some groovy stoner/doom from Mexico. I don’t remember exactly how I came across this record now but listening to one song through BandCamp was enough to make a purchase decision. I completely fell in love with the vocals on this album. Been listening to quite heavy stuff lately so maybe I just needed some beauty these darkening days. very enjoyable record this is and if you are interested then head to Tasty Odds, they still got this one available. Recommended!



Forming The Void: Reverie LP (white/purple)

void

Have to admit that I nearly missed this one, Forming The Void and their latest bone crushing heavy masterpiece “Reverie”. For me this band is brand new, never before have I listened to any of their records. The error has been corrected and learned from. Two more records added to my wantlist (previous vinyl Releases). One of my favorite records during this year. Strictly speaking, I dig every record I own, all of them have earned a place on my shelf. Check this one out if you haven’t already. Ripple Music seems to have 1 copy of this variant available on their BandCamp site (if you fancy these limited, colored ones). Regular copies available via Ripple’s US / EU store.



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!



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).



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!



Old Horn Tooth: From The Ghost Grey Depths 2×12” (purple)

00_horn
I bought this one on cassette version earlier this year, and now I got a vinyl version too. If I remember right, there was some kind of crowdfunding around the vinyl version and I missed it totally. A few months ago the band put some copies  of this purple version for sale on their BandCamp site (actually there’s still 3 copies left of this version) and I instantly grabbed a copy.  Thing with this band is their slow, dirty doomed mix of sludge & fuzzed stoner. Listening these four (over ten minutes long) tracks surely makes me wanna do some evil things.. Highly recommended one.



Green & Wood: Devil’s Plan LP

green

I bought this album a few months ago via Discogs. I don’t usually purchase used records without seeing but this seller is a trusted one and I had been looking for this album for a while. Now I had a chance to get this in my collection and even at a reasonable price.   Devil’s Plan is floating somewhere between doom & stoner and sounds damn good. I’m happy I got this here with me now.
