Fear Of God: Toxic Voodoo LP (red)

fear of god

Fear of God, the band’s name didn’t say anything to me a few months back. Came across this album via the Hand Of Doom label and my interest in the band woke up right away. Through Youtube, I saw the video below and I was really surprised I hadn’t come across this band before,. Perhaps the reason was that I lived in a world filled with British pop at the time of the album’s original release. Heck, in those years I missed too many great bands and recordings. Now it’s finally time to fix the mistakes and get back to basics. Great metal release and thanks to the vinyl version rightly belongs to Hand of Doom. Love Grosby’s vocals and it’s a shame she passed away too early.. Black wax version still available from the source, Hand Of Doom. Recommended!



Mephistofeles: Mayhem Sessions 12″ (Re, blue)

mephistofeles

Although in general I skip all possible reprints, sometimes I’m forced to bend. This is the third edition (on transparent blue vinyl as you can see on the picture) of Mephistofeles twelve-inch “Mayhem Session” which I received from Hand Of Doom a few months ago. This Argentine band has burned a scar deep into my heart with their filthy mixture of doomed-garage-stoner. My personal torment began almost 4 years back when Black Farm Records released their debut album, Whore. Still missing the original version of “(((I’m Heroin)))”, so if anyone knows where to get that beauty for decent prize just drop me a line.. well, the first press of this one would be nice too (that red one..)



Bongtower: Oscillator 2xLP (white/black merged)

bongtower

Here’s some love from Russia in the form of Bongtower. Oscillator is Bongtower’s first vinyl release and have to say that this love is heavy, crushingly heavy. I’m not that familiar with the Russian stoner / doom scene but this band sounds amazing! Great Blend of space / stoner / doom & sludge. Deep bow in the direction of Hand of Doom for releasing this beast from below / above. Limited to 250 copies and still available via Hand of Doom. Get a copy before it’s too late.
