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

firebreather

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)

hemptress1

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!



Monolord: No Comfort 2xLP (Orange/ Black Pinwheels And White/Brown Splatter)

monolord4

Fourth album by this Swedish fuzz king, Monolord. Album after another this band manages to wrap me around its finger (or is that even a proper saying?). Damn, this album is fueled by fuzzy, doomed sadness… like that tittle of the album, there’s no comfort on this album. Brilliant release. This variant is limited to 100 copies and it’s long gone, but do not worry because there are plenty of not-that-limited variants available via Relapse US / Relapse EU. Certainly one of the best releases in 2019.



 

Crypt Witch: Bad Trip Exorcism LP (green)

crypt

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.



 

Druglord: Deepest Regrets 12″ (Die Hard edition)

druglord

Missed this one 4 years ago, don’t ask me why because I can’t remember. Bought this via Discogs, from the same seller as that Holy Serpent album I posted about earlier. Single-sided twelve-inch record limited to 100 copies and released by STB Records. Three tunes filled with doomed sludge, so nothing can go wrong with this. Nice one.



 

Waingro: III LP (blue)

waingro

Hey, what is happening here? Why I haven’t heard about this band before? Waingro has released two albums before this newest one and I’ve been out of the map with these recordings. Thanks to Sludgelord Records for releasing this third album and presenting this group to me.. Waingro hits hard with their stoner fueled, heavy rocking sound. You can purchase this via band’s BandCamp site and EU customers via Sludgelord Records. I have seen the light.



 

Old Horn Tooth: From The Ghost Grey Depths CS

old horn tooth

Truth is that when the vinyl is not an option, then you go for CS (really hope that someone out there would release this on vinyl). Old Horn Tooth with this doomed, noisy stoner/sludge-filled tape stole my attention immediately as I heard this tape via BandCamp. This green copy is from the first press (limited to 25 copies) and there’s also a second press released on purple cassette (also limited to 25 copies). The sad truth is that both versions are sold out, but that’s how it goes..

I’m looking forward to hearing more about this band as soon as possible!



 

Kongh: Counting Heartbeats 2xLP (green/black)

kongh

Finally, this debut album by Kongh has been on my “want list” for years and suddenly found a copy via Discogs for a very decent price. Even though this has been released 12 years ago it sounds quite fresh to me. Crushing doomed sludge or something.. I don’t care about labeling music for different genres. Brilliant record. This version is limited to 270 copies. Recommended one.



 

Kannabinõid: 3 LP

kanna

Track number 2 and 11 seconds. Within those 11 seconds, I made my mind and bought this album. Kannabinõid comes from Estonia and this sludge/stoner/doom/metal-filled album has stolen my heart & soul. This album titled “3” seems to be their second full-length and what an album it is. Limited to 200 copies and available via their BandCamp site. Just check out this monstrous beauty, I’m going after their debut one. Special thanks to the one who packed & shipped this, super secured and all corners of the record were protected individually. Pure awesomeness.



 

Eremit: Carrier Of Weight LP (boxset)

eremit

This box set by Eremit arrived nearly 6 months ago, shame on me… that I haven’t had time for this one until now. This one is heavy, and I really mean that. The band is from Germany and this is their debut album (and if you ask me, this is freaking amazing for debut album.. or album at all). I  bought this box set (limited to 50 copies) via Transcending Obscurity and seems that they have sold out all vinyl versions by now. Recommended if you like your music super heavy & doomed. Hey, I love this.



 

Mammoth Storm: Alruna LP (orange)

mammoth storm

Somehow I have managed to avoid this band for some time, don’t ask me why because I have no idea. Was surfing around BandCamp and suddenly decided to check this album out. Well.. It took only a few minutes to purchase “Alruna” from Argonauta Records after listening to that first track. This one is heavy, doomed and at the same time so gooooood. Now that this band has stolen my attention, I must get their debut I have managed to skip. Seems that Argonauta has sold out this orange version but at least Season of Mist has some colored copies available if you are interested. Using google you can find this also from HHV or Napalm Records but those might be regular black copies.. Recommended one, highly.



Lucifungus: Akuma Kin LP (secret stash edition)

lucifungus

And what about this monstrous abomination filled with filthy fuzz, moss, mushrooms, and some secret green stuff? Lucifungus from Australia with their debut album (correct me if I’m wrong) “Akuma Kin”. Doomed stoner rock/metal and Hell Yeah I freaking love this record! Some might say that this sounds like Canadian Dopethrone, but more you listen, more you know. F**king awesome release. This came through Black Farm Records some time ago and this color variation (limited to 100 copies) is long gone but hey, go and grab that yellow edition (limited to 150 copies) while you still can!
