Amammoth: The Fire Above LP (yellow)

amammoth

Nice newcomer, actually I have no idea if they’ve been around for years, but this album is my first contact with this group. Heavy doomed sludge with crawling vocals, not bad performance at all. Amammoth, I welcome you with my hands wide open and hope to hear from you in the future. Special thanks to Electric Valley Records for bringing this beast into daylight. Still available from the source and while you’re visiting EVR I suggest you to check those other available records too ..



Cancervo: I LP (clear)

cancervo

Instrumental, psych doomed stoner.. A few years back I didn’t even think that combination would work. I admit, too many bands have shown my assumption to have been completely wrong over the years. Cancervo from Italy is one of those. You don’t need lyrics, vocals when the music itself is giving you guidelines, letting your Imagination take the reins into your own hands. Thanks to Cancervo for wiping out my last doubts on this matter. And thanks to Electric Valley for releasing this expanding experience in physical form. Sold out from the source, Electric Valley Records but still available for example from Shiny Beast (both versions, clear and green) or from HHV (green version).



The Crooked Whispers: Satanic Melodies LP (orange)

the crooked

Ain’t this a some bad-ass release? Surely I can feel how evil oozes from the grooves of this vinyl. This album could be some kind of soundtrack for some obnoxious human-sacrifising cult.. and I like it, a lot. Managed to grab this very limited version just because on the day of release I waited patiently in front of the screen, pressing the F5-button compulsively. Released jointly by Electric Valley Records & Techio Dischi. Available via BandCamp. Recommended!



Las Historias: Las Historias LP (clear)

historians

Some psychedelic, 70s influenced bluesy stoner/space rock from where else than South America and Argentina. There is coming so much new stuff from the same continent that makes me wonder what the hell is happening there? When this Las Historias album was announced by Electric Valley Records I skipped it because of that cover picture (rather frivolous reason, must admit) but I’m old-fashioned relic who once bought records based only on the cover art .. forgive my simplicity. Too late I realized that I had condemned the band for wrong reasons, all variants were sold out. Fortunately Kozmik Artifatcz suddenly announced that they had this record on their distro and I managed to grab this clear variant. Lucky me because all color variants are long gone by now. Recommended, highly.



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!



Mother Iron Horse: The Lesser Key LP (purple)

mother iron horse

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 itself (from their BandCamp site) but the vinyl had some terrible scratches on both sides (pictures can be seen below, no idea what has caused those because mailer had no marks of any kind). Bought another copy via Kozmik Artifactz when it came available via their store. Anyways, damn good album this surely is. Available via Electric Valley Records, band & Kozmik Artifactz.
