It took only four years from Bison Machine to release their second album. In this case time itself is irrelevant because here we have a great hard (retro) rocking heavy album. Bought their debut album in 2015 (self-released version) and listened to it a lot during that year, but then years passed by and the record faded into oblivion.. But now it’s time to drag forgotten treasure back into the sunlight, next to the latest one. Seas of Titan still […]
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!
Some dirty stuff from Argentina. About a year and a half ago I bought The Black Furs debut album via Golden Dawn Recording and that filthy doomed sound is still alive and breathing! I got me this green variant and bought also cassette version, so that might tell how much I like this album. There’s something strange happening in Argentina for sure, first Mephistofeles and now The Black Furs. Both versions of this album (cassette & vinyl) were available via […]
My first touch with this band and not that bad touch at all. The Space Between Worlds needs serious spinning time because this is not some background music. There are so many layers on this record, desert/stoner/blues/something which is hard to categorize. All elements for the stunning listening experience. Available via Blues Funeral Recordings and from the band for example. Recommended.
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. […]
The third album I have managed to get from this freaking beautiful band (missed that previous one..). Merlin has traveled so far from their first album, there’s saxophone, flute, accordion, trumpet.. and still this is Merlin. The outstanding album floating somewhere between space/stoner/psychedelic/doom & stoner. The Company records have managed to release a marvelous package and I have to say it’s worth every penny I invested in it. Splattered one is sold out but you still can get yellow variation […]
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.
I know that this band has already released two albums but this eight-inch is the first I have bought / listened. Oh, and I’m loving it. DHU released this some time ago and after checking the band I had to have this (and obviously I’m going after those two full-lengths too). This awesome 8″ is limited to only 66 copies so I must say I’m lucky to have it. Have to admit that I was about to skip this […]
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!!
DHU Records hitting hard once again. This time releasing a heavy fuzzed, doomed stoner album by The Red Widows. Actually, this one arrived some time ago but I’ve been sooooo lazy posting my new purchases here. Anyways, with this album, The Red Widows manages to wrap its haunting fingers around my neck while pulling me deeper and deeper into its fuzzed oblivion.. Great release from the great label. There’s a good reason why I keep purchasing DHU releases one […]
Better later than ever. The Graviators, I have come across the name of this group a few times but never bothered to check any of their records before. Been following some Facebook groups about stoner & doom and saw Robert Black (a guy behind one of my favorite DIY labels, DHU Records) posting a picture of this album there. After staring that picture a while I thought maybe I should check out this band at last. Damn! It was love […]
Ain’t this a nice piece of doomed/fuzzed stoner? Black Smokers is the title of the debut album by Canadian heavy monster, Lochness. The record label behind this evil abomination is called From The Urn. Earlier this year From The Urn released awesome album by Marécages and the decision to buy this one was quite easy. This “die hard” version is already sold out but there are a few regular black colored versions available from the band’s BandCamp page. If you like […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
And this beauty I bought via Cursed Tongue Records. This is Hippie Death Cult and this band sounds amazing overall! Now that I’ve listened to this album for a few weeks, I really do understand why this record collects praising reviews from every direction. 111 is fueled with soundscapes from the 70s, doom & stoner and with some grunge influences. This awesome package is released by Cursed Tongue Records (one of my favorite DIY labels out there) and you can […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
One of those records that I’ve been listening very closely the past couple of weeks. Lightning Born’s debut that arrived with Zed & Shotgun Sawyer from Ripple Music some weeks ago. Bluesy/stoner/hard rock is the field they are playing on. This “Astral Storm” version is still available from the source, Ripple Music. Those EU citizens who want to save some shipping cost can also purchase this album via Ripple’s EU store. I prefer US store… some of you may know […]
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, […]
Doooooommmm.. got this one on vinyl & on cassette. Love this kinda ethereal doom or whatever you may call this. DHU Records released this on clear, lathe cut vinyl limited to only 66 copies (maybe that was little too limited run..). Aaarghh.. this must be one of the best releases I have heard by far during 2019. DHU Records has sold out this vinyl version (surprise) but Sludgelord still has this on cassette so you know where to go. Amazing […]
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 […]
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 […]
Little late with this one, have to admit. Ordered this debut full-length from Doomstress about 4 months ago from DHU Records but started spinning it just a few weeks ago (shame on me). Now that I have listened to this album numerous times, it keeps growing and that’s what I like. Great heavy Stoner album and great job from DHU that keeps releasing these beauties. Available from DHU Records, DHU edition is sold out but there’s still Bones & Rust […]
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 […]
Totally new band for me. Heard this band for the first time via Cursed Tongue Records and the track called “Vicarious” forced me to listen more. After that, it was quite an easy decision to purchase the album. Not that traditional Stoner/doom band, they are mixing different elements to their music and it makes this album so refreshing. Great release from Cursed Tongue Records (like the fact that this label does not get stuck on some specific genre). This treasure is still […]
Hah, yet another split release (seems that I have to take back those previous words about not liking split releases). This arrived months ago and finally I have time to give this one proper spinning time. Quality package from DHU Records, once again. There’s still various versions available from the source, DHU. Get one (or more) while you still can because these will be gone sooner or later.
Even though I’m not that big fan of split releases, I had to purchase this one from Black Tomb / Crud released by Totem Cat Records. Filthy split mixed with darkened doom/stoner/death metal, in other words, beauty. Still available from the source, Totem Cat Records, TCR edition & regular edition.
Came across with this band via Bandcamp, listened only one track and I was sold. This doomed stoner/sludge album is filled with darkness & despair and surprise, I love it! Once again awesome band from Sweden and it makes me wonder how in hell that country can provide outstanding bands one after another… If you like getting lost in the darkness I suggest you to check this beast out, like I did. Now I just have to get my hands […]
Yep, as you can see I managed to grab this one, split release by Mephistofeles & The Black Furs. Have to admit that 40€ was a little high prize to pay from this seven-inch but hey, it was released by Creep Purple (I love that label and all that work the guy behind it has done for promoting stoner-doom-psych etc. artists & music). Both bands playing dirty, filthy doomed rock’n’roll on this little record and I really suggest you to […]
Don’t know what’s wrong with the drinking water in Norway but yet again amazing stoner/hard rocking album from the country better know of its blackened metal scene. Had to choose between this album and some bills I was going to pay.. Well, it’s quite obvious how that went at the end. Band is mixing 70s sounds with hard rocking stoner and as we all know by now, that concept can’t go wrong. Cursed Tongue Records is behind this release and […]
“There’s no sunshine when she’s gone…” Well, this record hasn’t seen the sunshine and maybe it’s better that way. Raw & dirty, doomed stoner metal with creepy vocals. Band is Yatra and their debut album follows the name “Death Ritual”. I listened this album via BandCamp few times and find it interesting enough to spent some money on it. Darkened is the road they are following and I’m walking right behind. This album is released by Grimoire Records (US) and […]
More I listen to this more I find myself enjoying it. Taiga Woods, never heard of this norwegian band before but decided to order this with Absent’s album from Cursed Tongue Records (I really like the idea of releasing two albums at the same). Well, this psych/stoner/hard rocking record has earned its place in my record shelf. Don’t know but these groovy, fuzzy tunes are forcing me to move my legs across the floor. Limited to 100 copies on green […]
Now we are talking! Damn I love this fuzzed stoner/psych/doom album by swedish Silver Devil. In my opinion this album is so near perfection that I could cry, yes it’s that good. I remember that I took a sneak peek of their previous album when it was released and skipped that (can’t imagine what the hell was I thinking back then..). One more record to my wantlist though. Sadly this LP version is limited only to 100 copies which sounds […]
Shame on me, this arrived months ago and it took way too long to give a proper spinning time for this beauty. Talking about Son Of the Morning and their same titled debut long-play released by DHU Records. Mixing doom, occult rock and stoner this band can’t go wrong. I like this record, that’s why I bought it, simple as that. Still available via DHU Records (EU) or from the band’s BandCamp site (US). Since I have listened way much heavier […]
Wow! Here we have little heavier release. Brazilian Absent with their debut release “Towards The Void”. Psychedelic Funeral Doom as band itself describes their music on their BandCamp site. I agree even though the end of the third track goes straight to blackened metal. Brilliant! Thanks to Cursed Tongue Records for bringing this alive on vinyl format. Dark & hopeless this record surely is but that’s what makes it so beautiful. This limited version is gone from the source, Cursed […]
Yeah, got this album by Rifflord few weeks ago from STB Records. Bought this also on cassette version from Teschio Dischi (didn’t manage to get that most limited cassette version but I’m good with the one I got). Like this album a lot, more than just a lot. Bluesy stoner with some southern influences, match made in heaven. I’m a huge fan of STB Records and this was obvious purchase. Have to admit that I was little surprised that STB […]
Holy shit what a killer release from this Australian stoner/doom outfit! Big thanks to Black Farm Records bringing this alive on vinyl format. This record is heavy and filled with hopeless darkness. Little do I know about this band but they have released two cassettes before this album (actually there’s two tracks included on this album from their previous cassette release “Women of The Wand”). This vinyl version is sold out but I suggest you to purchase that “regular” version […]
My precious.. Fifth album from Lightsabres, this time released by DHU Records (favourite artist & one of the best labels there is). Made a deal with myself about six years ago when Lightsabres debut album was released that I’ll buy everything this artist will ever release (Demons was so brilliant, and still is). Love these garage/stoner/grunge/fuzzy/lo-fi albums John Strömshed keeps recording. Damn this latest sounds as great as all previous albums (got this on cassette version too). Even though I […]
I’ve been overwhelming unlucky with vinyl releases of this band, every damn time. So, I went for these CS versions and finally the sun decided to turn its face to me. Bought these via Golden Dawn Recordings and finally I understand why people are after releases of this band, these are freaking brilliant! Stoner/psych/doom.. don’t really care about categories, I rather just listen the tunes and let my ears make decisions. My hairy ears are in love. Cursed Tongue Records […]
Found this, nearly pristine, copy of Elder’s first record from local record store. Have to admit that this band has been hiding in the darkness on my doomed path. Now that I’m listening to this album I just keep wondering how have I managed to avoid this band for so long. Maybe some day soon I learn from my mistakes. Timeless psychedelic-doomed-stoner album and place in my record rack is guaranteed. And what’s best, I didn’t pay myself sick when […]
Pre-ordered his from Black Farm Records on April, finally it’s here (manufacturing this had numerous problems during the way). Bought this on cassette too because I just couldn’t wait vinyl version. Doomed stoner with obvious elements from grunge (or am I having some problems with my hearing?). This green colored vinyl is limited to 120 copies and there’s still white colored (limited to 180 copies) available from the label, Black Farm Records. Nice one, like a lot.
Took a little while to arrive but finally it’s here (got me some extra seven-inch for compensation). What can I say, damn good record with same elements of dirt & danger as all previous albums. Love this record and it goes straight to my top 10 records of this year. There’s no band like Dopethrone and obviously some groups try to follow their filthy footsteps.. but there’s one to rule them all. Pow to the King! This colored one (Totem […]
Damn.. I got this album in my wishlist at BandCamp for few months. Then came the day when I listened it through once, for the second and third time. I was sold and I had to get my album in my collection. This is pure rock’n’roll, heavy blues, stoner combining so many elements and the result is.. just amazing! This Italian band is just awesome and I have check out their previous album as soon as possible. Album is still available […]
Hahaaaa.. Yes, I got both of these ep’s on cassette versions but as a vinyl freak I had to get these on superior format too. combining two epe’s on single disc and released on three color variation, blue (limited to 100 copies), purple (limited to 100 copies) & black (limited to 300 copies). Blue & black copies still available from band’s BandCamp site. Great band and great records! Now I’m just waiting rest of those EP’s to get cassette & vinyl treatment. […]
Bought this one few months ago. This is my first touch with this group, Thanks to Creep Purple (awesome site promoting stoner/doom/sludge etc. releases). I like this record, it’s heavy, it’s loud. This version with backpatch & rolling paper was limited to 25 copies and long gone by now (for obvious reasons). If you like stoner/space/sludge/hardcore/metal then this could be one for you. Oh, white copy (limited to 100 copies) & regular black one still available via band’s BandCamp site. […]
Yeah. Time for some cassette update.. Sorry for those vinyl freaks (like I am) but lately I have found myself purchasing more & more albums in this format. Some of these I also got on vinyl but I love these handy little things as much I love every damn vinyl I have. Mostly stoner/doom stuff but there’s also some stranger tapes listed. SHROOMS CIRCLE: SHROOMS CIRCLE Lovely cover! Shrooms Circle with their sludge/doom/stoner release. Really don’t know much about this […]

Album I have been waiting for months to be released and yesterday it suddenly arrived at my doorsteps. Windhand is one of those bands I have been following for years now and my love towards this group is getting stronger album by album. Dorthia Cottrell’s solo album, released three years ago via Forcefield Records, was one of my favorite ones during 2015. Upcoming weekend I’ll spend some quality time with this newest one for sure. This so-called “Boxset” is limited […]
