Got this beauty from RidingEasy Records today. Even thought there are dozens and dozens bands sounding 70s era sabbath/heavy/doom/sludge/psychedelic/occult/rock, this sounds.. hmm different (read fresh). There’s something magical on this record and you can’t ignore the fact that these two guys live thousands of miles away from each other (one in Norway, other in India). Main point here is that they share the same vision when it comes to music and this record is awesome proof of that vision. And […]
It took a while to arrive but today it arrived. There were some delivery problems etc. along the way but most of all, it was my bad I ordered this from Australia (I should have done more research and order a copy little nearer, from Europe). Well, the main thing is that it’s here now and was worth to wait. Epic mixture of stoner/sludge/doom/drone/psychedelic rock. I have been playing this album the whole day since it arrived and every time […]
Smiling. This came few hours ago. I have been listening lots of experimental and electronic music lately so this LP is like refreshing wind (read storm). Akûma manages to blend metal, sludge,hard-core, doom etc. elements perfectly together and while listening this album for the first time via BandCamp it was easy decision to purchase physical copy. And now while I’m listening this, I’m smiling (and that means I’m very pleased with this one). This also means that I have to […]
This came today, debut vinyl from Bast. This release floats somewhere between black, doom and sludge metal and I really like the atmosphere on this album, hopelessness and that hidden, silent rage. I hope to hear from this band in the future. This is limited to 300 copies on black vinyl and is available from Black Bow Records or from Burning World Records. Recommended release. This is a replacement for the one I got few weeks ago (with damaged cover). Well, there’s […]
And little more metal with a hint of sludge and doom. This band is one of those treasures from BandCamp. I really like this overwhelming rawness that appears on this album. Slow and dark, like it should be. This album is limited to 500 copies (25 copies of those came with back patch and hand-numbered art sheet). This album is available from band’s BandCamp site and if you like what you hear, I suggest you to grab a copy, like […]
This one arrived today (and made my day also!). I spotted this from BandCamp few weeks ago and as usual, if I like what I hear I buy it. Very interesting record indeed, some big names involved and sounds evil. I do not know about limitation (this was pre-order item from band’s BandCamp site and they have sold this out) but I think that you can find this one from Southern Lord Records soon.
