Mammon’s Throne: Forward Unto Flame LP (splatter)


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)

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.

Rosy Finch: Scarlet LP (red/black)


Rosy Finch from Spain delivering some beautiful grunge/stoner/sludge influenced alternative rock or something (I’m just a simple man and it’s hard for me to categorize music styles anymore..). I bought this one alongside that Dö album from Lay Bare Recordings. Great release and this record have been under the needle more than once lately (digital version via headphones on my way to work).   from the band or Lay Bare Recordings. Highly Recommended!!

Demonic Death Judge: The Trail LP (orange transparent)


Yet another great release from a Finnish stoner/doom/sludge outfit. This one is from Demonic Death Judge, a band I have never heard of before (shame on me). Actually, I know the band by the name but somehow I have managed to skip every damn release and tune from this group for years now. A few months ago I saw the official video of “Filthy as Charged” and I was sold! Filthy, groovy… and those vocals. Awesome package. Still available from Suicide Records, just check this out if you haven’t already done it. And I’m gonna hunt down those previous releases for sure!

Witchfinder: Hazy Rites LP (transparent green)


This record has been spinning a lot while I have been isolating myself from the outside world. The band is Witchfinder from France and this is their second vinyl release called Hazy Rites. I don’t know anything about this band but holy hell do I like this album. Doomed stoner/sludge is the name of the came here and the title of the album tells all you need to know. I like this album a lot and I’m a little confused that it haven’t sold out already.. Anyways, check out this one and if you are like it, buy it. There are two different color-variations (regular black wax and transparent green) available here.

Yatra: Blood Of The Night LP (obi version)


Haa… about a year ago I got Yatra’s debut album “Death Ritual” and now I got their second one, Bloof of The Night, here with me. This latest one is released by STB Records and I chose Obi-version just because it looked nicer than other color-variations. For those who are not familiar with this band, Yatra is a little darker mix of sludge/stoner/doom with a hint of Death metal in their sound. Beautiful album and really nice to see STB Records putting out these jewels once again. Still available from the source, STB and if you’re located on old continent Kozmik Artifactz is the place to visit.

Marijannah: Istanah LP (transparent yellow)


Yep.. This band is also one of those I have managed to miss/skip earlier. The point is that there are so many amazing bands/albums floating around and I just don’t have time to check all those out, it’s just impossible. Cursed Tongue Records is one of those labels I follow closely and lately, I have purchased nearly everything the label has released. This latest from Marijannah came through CTR and obviously, I was interested (actually I purchased this album without hearing a note from it). And here it is, there’s always room for quality releases in my collection and this surely is one. At this moment seems that it’s quite hard to find a copy of this album but Stickman Records still have 1 red-colored copy.. and the band is selling cassette version on their BandCamp site if you fancy tapes (like I do).

Gurt: Bongs Of Praise LP (purple)


Doomed sludge/stoner outfit from UK greeting us with their latest full-length. A few years ago I bought their previous album “Skullossus” and like that one a lot. This new one has been on quite heavy rotation lately and yes, this sounds damn good. Hidden treasure this is for sure. Limited to 50 copies on purple, 50 copies on green and 150 copies on black wax. All versions are still available via their BandCamp site. Just check this out!


Horseburner: The Thief LP (blue splatter)


Horseburner? An obscure name for the band.. Well, here’s The Thief, their third album and the first I own. Spotted this band via Ripple Music webstore, listened to it for a few moments and the decision was made. Heavy psych/stoner/sludge/doom, you name it. Great record and I’m going to let the needle follow the grooves numerous times during upcoming weeks. Ripple Music has sold this color variation out a long time ago  but hey, there are still white-colored copies (ltd. 100) available from Ripple’s US & EU stores. Recommended recording indeed!


Evilspeak: s/t CS


Here’s a tape you should check out. Evilspeak with same-titled cassette. This CS is filled with grooving, doomed sludge/stoner and I love this one so much. Have to say that I’m really happy I bought this one and if you ask me, I would love to see this on vinyl too. Give this one a minute or two and you’ll see what I mean. Show your support and purchase the cassette from their BandCamp page. Nice one!!


Firebreather: Under a Blood Moon LP (red with black splatter)


Holy sh**.. !! I picked this one from the local post office a few days ago (after paying taxes etc..). This is Firebreather, crushing doomed stoner monster, from (surprisingly) Sweden. Pure ear candy from the first track to the last one. Released by Riding Easy Records and this variation is limited to 75 copies (should have been red with black splatter but my version is more or less just red). All color variations still available from the source and if you wanna save on shipping costs you can order this evil record from Riding Easy’s EU store. Highly recommended album!!!!!!!! Easily one of the best records I have heard during this year!


Hemptress: Alchemy LP (CTR edition)


I almost skipped this little treasure when it still was available (actually I just had some issues with my budget at that time). Fortunately, I came to my senses and decided to invest my pennies in what I love. These guys from Canada have stolen my heart with their southern influenced, stoner fueled rock ‘n’ roll. The band sounds awesome and like so many times before Cursed Tongue Records have managed to release an outstanding record. This variant is long gone but you still can get a copy (on black wax) from the source, Cursed Tongue Records. Hell Yeah!
