Cancervo: I LP (clear)


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 Re-Stoned: Thunders Of The Deep LP (colored)


Here’s some beautiful instrumental psych-stoner from Russia, The Re-Stoned with their latest, fuzz-filled album going under the title, Thunders of The Deep. As I have said million times before I haven’t ever  been that thrilled about instrumental stoner etc. music but here’s a great example how good it can be at it’s best. So, now I’m ready to take back all those narrow-minded words I have said earlier. It’s time to enjoy every damn note I’m hearing here. Great album, honestly. Colored version of this album still available fro example from Greatest Hits Mailorder and if you don’t mind the color of the vinyl, regular black copies available for example via Kozmik Artifactz.

Bismut: Retrocausality 2xLP (purple)


Some instrumental space/stoner/psych from Netherlands on purple colored double album. Retrocausality is their second album and I decided to check out this group at last. Woah! After listening to the first track on this album I was forced to purchase the whole damn thing on vinyl format. Been listening to this album quite much lately and every time it has been a very pleasant experience. Have to check out their debut album also as soon as possible. Recommended group/album. Get your copy for example via Lay Bare Recordings, Kozmik Artifactz or from the band itself.

Brunt: Ataraxy LP (cream/green)


Sometimes it’s just good to sit down and let the sound waves take you somewhere far away .. Brunt succeeds in this with his latest album perfectly. Ataraxy operates somewhere between post-rocking stoner / desert / doomed Instrumental. Missed this album when it was announced by Magic Mustache Records but managed to grab this copy afterwards. Awesome beauty and available via BandCamp.

Vinnum Sabbathi: Of Dimensions And Theories LP +7″ (Earth & Moon)


Space, the final frontier.. Vinnum Sabbathi is offering us a journey to the stars with their latest release “Of Dimensions & Theories”. Quite impressing, instrumental stoner/space rock album from this Mexican group. Beautiful looking package and for your information, this version is now sold out but Stolen Body Records seems to have 2nd edition (Mars & Phobos) available. What are you still waiting for? Go ahead and take trip to the stars while you still can.

Clouds Taste Satanic: Second Sight LP (Ultra Clear with Deep Purple & Black Splatter)

Clouds Taste Satanic

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 their BandCamp site. European customers can go and use their money for a good cause via Shiny Beast. Nice one!


Crypt Witch: Bad Trip Exorcism LP (green)


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 where you still can get your hands on vinyl version, Shiny Beast.


Bongripper: The Great Barrier Reefer 2xLP (purple/blue with pink splatter)


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.

Voyag3r: War Mask LP (Transparent green)


Synthwave/retrowave/space/prog/instrumental,  whatever. Voyag3r is one of few bands I like to listen when it comes to this “genre”. This is their third album and third I own (that should tell you of my passion towards this group). Great package and that mask is superior (maybe I should wear it and take a run cross my neighbor back yard. now that the sun has set..). Anyways, great record this is and still available from Bellyache Records (on three different color variations). Check this out if you are interested even a pit, this won’t let you down for sure.


Clouds Taste Satanic: Evil Eye LP (Weedpurgis Edition)


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 here for sure. I think that this most limited version is sold out by now but there are still various versions available from Band’s BandCamp site. Recommended one.



Insect Ark: Marrow Hymns LP

insect ark

Actually I bought this album months ago but just recently I have been listening it with thought (while warming a sauna in these early morning hours). Instrumental, doomed drone could be near the truth when talking about this latest from Insect Ark. Beautiful release from these two ladies. One more addition to my “Best of Fall 2018 Soundtrack”. Check out this one, it’s totally worth it. Available via Profound Lore’s MerchTable .


Spurv: Myra LP (black/grey merge)


Been a while since I have been listening post-rock at all but this new one from Spurv made me remember how awesome music instrumental post-rock can be at it’s best. This norwegian group is a great example of that. Bought their debut, Skarntyde, few years ago and that record had a serious time under the needle. This new one continues where that debut ended. This is music for those late autumn mornings when afternoon frost is trying to escape from the rays of the rising sun. Beautiful record. Get your hands on this via BandCamp.

Clouds Taste Satanic: The Glitter Of Infinite Hell 2xLP (bone/bronze & gold oxblood splatter)

clouds taste satanic

I’ve known this band for some time now but it took quite long to purchase their music in physical format. Instrumental stoner/doom/sludge/call-it-whatever-you-want is quite new thing to me and I like it!. Like this so much that I must grab their previous records too. Great example how many great bands there is and how limited our time is to find all these treasures, some you might find and some you’ll obviously gonna miss. Really happy that I came across with this group. Ordered my copy via Kozmik Artifactz few weeks ago  and as far as I know this was their last colored one. Little hard to find item nowadays but Discogs can help you with that problem. If some one knows where to find a copy, any color variation, feel free to share. Recommended one.


Dead Sea Apes: Recondite 2xLP

dead sea apes

Dead Sea Apes.. I fell in love with their psych/drone inspired post-rocking instrumental music since I heard their collaboration album with Black Tempest called “The Sun Behind The Sun” five years ago. Oh, I think that I have all their vinyl releases so I can be called a fan or something. This double album is some kind of compilation but that didn’t stop me purchasing it (even though I’m not that big fan of compilations). I recommend this group if you need a place to escape from this hectic realm, these soundscapes will take you away.. at least for moment. Limited to 300 copies and seems that this is quite hard to find item at this moment. Surely you can grab a copy via Discogs..


Brunt: Blackbeard 12″ (orange/blue)


This I got from HeviSike yesterday, been waiting for this and I even thought that also this one has gone missing (like what happened with my die-hard copy of Morass Of Molasses). Hopefully this arrived in perfect condition. I missed Brunt’s debut album and been hunting it since but this twelve-inch helps to ease that pain. Doomed instrumental psych/stoner/whatever and sounds damn good. Limited to 300 colored copies (like on the picture above) and still available from the source, HeviSike. Recommended one and hurry, get a copy while you still can because it’s quite certain that later only copies available are on Discogs/Ebay..


Richard Houghten: All Guitars 2 LP (lathe-cut)


Woah!! Latest recording by Richard Houghten, album titled “All Guitars 2”. If you haven’t ever heard of this artist, I suggest you to check out his works. I already have several of Houghten’s albums & 7-inches (few seven-inches still missing) and with every new release he manages to surprise me. Folktronica, instrumental, experimental, acoustic guitars.. and this time we can hear some cover versions from Aphex Twin, DJ Shadow, Bonobo etc. Damn, I love his records. Managed to grab a copy even though it was nearly impossible to decide what version to choose.. I chose lathe-cut version, limited to 50 copies. There were few other variations available too but this one felt most interesting.  As you can see on the picture above, I got something extra with the album, seven-inch “On / Lifting Away” with holographic etchings.. didn’t see this coming and I really appreciate this, I really do!

All versions of this latest one are sadly sold out by now..


El Altar Del Holocausto: – S H ∃ – LP (splattered)

el altar gel holocausto

Got this post-rocking instrumental album from Throne Records few weeks ago, and have to admit that my soul is resting while listening these tunes. There was this time period while I listened mostly instrumental post-rock like If These Trees Could Talk, Toundra, Explosions In The Sky, Mono etc. Great bands but too much is just too much. Nowadays I use to listen bands from this genre time to time and this album by El Altar Del Holocausto sounded way too good to miss. This splattered, numbered version is limited to 75 copies and as you can already guess, it’s sold out. But don’t worry (if you are on this kind of music), there’s still regular version available from the source, Throne Records (and the prize ain’t bad at all, 13€ + shipping).


Spectral Lore: Gnosis 2×12″ (bronze)


This is record I ordered while sitting on the bus on my way to my grandmothers funeral almost two months ago. I listened this via BandCamp several times during that trip and fell in love with this blackened, ambient/drone, nearly instrumental folk metal record. Never had heard of this band before I got this mail from Throne Records announcing release of this record. On this album there’s one track I could listen on repeat & endlessly and that track is called “Averroe’s Search”, haven’t heard as beautiful track in years. Thanks to Throne Records introducing this band and releasing this magical record. Released on bronze (numbered & limited to 75 copies), on white-speckled transparent purple (also numbered & limited to 75 copies) and on black vinyl (limited to 300 copies). There’s only black copies available anymore from the source, Throne Records.



Richard Houghten: Music by Richard Houghten LP & something secret..


Few weeks ago I got this beauty via post. I missed this one when it was available (all Richard’s releases sell out within hours). I really like this artist and I always try to grab whatever he is releasing but sometimes it’s really hard because of time difference. Few times I have woke up in the morning just to notice that something has been announced and sold out while I have been counting sheep. With this one I was more than lucky because Richard himself contacted me and wanted to send me something (he never mentioned what), I really didn’t expect this or anything else. Ones again pure diamond. Best way to describe Richard’s music is “folktronica” like he do on his BandCamp page. This is limited to 50 copies and well, you know it’s sold out. Maybe Richard should think little bigger pressing amounts? Check out his BandCamp site for time to time, you never know what treasures there might be!

Along this album came super secret test pressing/ single-sided prototype of upcoming A Cosmic Gift’s album “Hologram”.. more about this jewel closer to releasing day, but I can say that this will be a freaking brilliant record!!


Circle: Meronia 2xLP (orange)


Finally, repress of this awesome debut album by Circle. I had that original version back in the days.. and can’t remember what happened to it. This repress of Meronia is limited to 1000 copies, 700 copies on black wax and 300 copies on solid orange vinyl (colored version is available only via Ektro Records). I do not even have words to praise this one enough but one thing is for sure, this prog/kraut/beauty has always been one of the best records I have ever heard. Yeah, it’s that good. Recommended release (and at last available for everyone!).
