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!



Stonerror: Widow In Black LP

Stone Error

Oh boys & girls how long I waited for this to arrive. If I remember right I pre-ordered this Stonerror album nearly six months ago and it arrived finally few months ago. The band is from Poland and they know exactly what they’re doing, smooth stoner rock. I suggest you check out this band if you haven’t already done that. Kick-ass record this certainly is. Available via the band’s BandCamp site.



 

Saint Karloff / Devil’s Witches: Coven Of The Ultra-Riff LP (green/black marbled)

coven03

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 without “buffer” zones & without stiffeners). Anyways, record itself sounds amazing, both bands are marvellous and because of this split-release, I even ordered that Saint Karloff’s upcoming album too. Love is in the air.. or should I rather say Love is Doom.. Vinyl version is released by Majestic Mountain Records and cassette version by Stoner Witch Records (yeah, got me a CS version too).

Devil’s Witches ‎– The Audio Erotic Collection 2xLP

devil's

Anyone who has ever come across with this blog of mine sure knows how unfortunate I have always been with this band and all their releases. Well, I have managed to grab a few releases on cassette format but this time luck was by my side.. or I keep thinking so. That F5 button was under heavy pressure at the time this compilation was about to be released. And finally, I was lucky enough to get a copy. It’s amazing how fast all those 500 copies vanished. Yeah, I love this record like all those 499 other lucky ones. Thanks to Cursed Tongue Records for bringing this alive (and for understanding my whining about those corner folds..). Greatness on vinyl format!



 

No Man’s Valley: Outside The Dream LP (green marbled)

tonzonen_xx

Recently I went through some “monthly list” I came across while surfing around the net. Checked all the bands mentioned (well, I knew some of the bands already but then there were bands I had never heard before). No Man’s Valley was one of those. Holy hell, I love this record. Mysterious, melancholic, psychedelic, bluesy desert rock or something. After listening to the first track it was obvious that I have to purchase this one. Here it is now as you can see from the picture above. Brilliant album if I may say even though it has nothing to do with stoner/sludge/doom I nowadays mostly like to listen. Just check out this one, it might surprise you like it did in my case. Available from Tonzonen Records.

 



 

Conan: Existential Void Guardian 2xLP (gold)

conan

Still here even though it has been a while since the last update. This latest from Conan arrived few weeks ago and due my working hours and a lack of free time, this has been spinning under the needle only few days now. Double album and that second vinyl is some live bonus (and for your information I haven’t been a big fan of live recording ever, and this one does not make an exception). Conan is Conan, what more can I say? Love their debut wich was/and still is a fantastic piece of doomed sludge/stoner and here we go again. Heavy as hell this one surely is and deserves its place beside previous releases. Not bad at all. This gold-colored gatefold is limited to 200 copies, unfortunately sold out by now but you can still reach out your hairy hands for that green colored (ltd. 300) version still available via Napalm Records 



The Red Widows: Rising 12″ (DHU exclusive)

the red widows

This freaking damn good 12″ came with that latest Grajo album. Here we have a twelve-inch EP from The Red Widows. Unknown band to me but seems that DHU Records manages to surprise me release after release. Groovy 70s influenced stoner/doom rock with vocalist who has been kidnapped straight from the stars. This is good, more than good leaving me wonder when they are going to put out their full-length? This HU exclusive version is still available from the source, DHU Records Highly recommended one and if you don’t believe me, just check it out by yourselves. Hell yeah!! Pure DHU quality

Actually I ordered and got a copy some time ago but postal delivery managed to smash the cover (one corner of it). I uploaded a picture of that corner damage to my Facebook site, didn’t mention what record it was nor from what label it came. Didn’t took long from Robert to contact me and he wanted to send a replacement copy. I wanna point out here that I wasn’t after a new copy when I uploaded that image, I just wanted to show how postal delivery treat even most secured packages. So my humble thanks to Robert, I really appreciate this and know it!



 

Messa: Feast For Water LP (orange/black)

messa

Well, I skipped this bands debut (can’t say why..) but then I came across with this one, their second full-length and I was sold. Don’t know how to describe this record.. it’s like doomed metal with some darkened jazz in it or something. Anyways, it sounds freaking good. Love the atmosphere on this album and those vocals.. Must get my hands on that debut album too. I bought this copy of mine via Aural Music (according to Discogs there should have been A2 double-sided poster included.. who knows) and surprise, first edition is sold out (orange/black color-in-color (ltd.200) & orange (no information of  limitation) . But don’t worry, Aural has second pressing now for sale with three color variations. I suggest you to check this beauty out!



 

Night Runner: Thunderbird LP (Deluxe edition)

night01

I’m still here.. Just realized that it has been way too long since the last update. Let’s start with this one I got from Poisoned Mind Records few months ago. Second full-length from Night Runner. Thunderbird is the title of the album. I missed Night Runners debut (deluxe version) year ago just because I took few beers too much, passed out & missed that dlx version.. Would like to thank Poisoned Mind for the copy I got for free (pink/black splattered version) later with other order.

So I was quite awake with this second one and scored deluxe version (sold out quite fast). Don’t know what have I done because I also got another copy (clear w/  black & blue splattered version, see picture below) included. And for those who don’t know, Night Runner is mixing synthwave with other genres like jazz, metal, soundtrack etc. Awesome package, I love this but you don’t have to. Vinyl versions of this release are long gone. Recommended album if you get your hands on this.

Dawn: Dawn EP 12″ (DHU Exclusive version)

dawn

Been so busy on job & fixing the house that I haven’t managed to update this blog of mine.. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t received some quite awesome vinyls thou. This single-sided EP from Dawn arrived nearly a month ago and still I find it pretty damn good. Fuzzy stoner rock from Australia released by awesome DHU Records. This DHU exlusive version is still available from the source (just like those two other variants), DHU Records. You can also grab a copy from the band on their BandCamp site. Lovely one & recommended too.



 

Valonyrkki: Kohtuuton LP

kohtuuton

Well, very strange release from Svart Records. There’s only two tracks on this psychedelic album by Valonyrkki (translation could be something like “lightfist”). The one behind this psychedelic record is Ville Pirinen, well-known comic artist and hard-working musician. More info about this project can be found for example from Discogs (https://www.discogs.com/Valonyrkki-Kohtuuton/release/11444972). This is limited to 100 copies on black wax and still available from the source, Svart Records. Recommended if you want to clean your ears & mind with this cosmic journey through finnish musical scenes. With open arms & heart I welcome this to my collection, next to Motelli Skronkle.



 

Doomstress​/​Sparrowmilk: Split 12″ (DHU exclusive color variation)

doomstress

Few weeks have passed and I have been way too busy at work to even listen any of the new records that have arrived. Even though I should be sleeping at this moment I still want to say some words about this split album from Doomstress​/​Sparrowmilk. Both bands are new to me so this split is quite good way to get familiar with these artists. What it comes to Doomstress, sounds gooood… heavy as hell and I can even taste some 70’s here. Like the voice of the singer. Hmm, now I want some more. Then we come to Sparrowmilk. Never heard of this band before and freaking hell, this is instrumental doomed post-rock or something and hell yes I’m in love. Haven’t been listening instrumental music for some time and this one hit the goal right away. Awesome release from Dark Hedonistic Union Record, once again. This color variation (+ two other versions) of this split is limited to 90 pieces and still available from the source, DHU Records!
