Instrumental rock and metal can be a hit and miss affair. Many bands are simply too technical to get any form of mass appeal or some them really need to a vocalist to get things going for them. There’s a rare breed of bands out there who really manages to [...]

Once upon a time in a galaxy not too far away actually, someone took three chords and the truth and brought us that wonderful thing called heavy metal. Whether it’s in studio or live form we usually get our fixes from short sharp shocks.  The CD box set is usually [...]

This weekend, we’re bringing you more metal of the doom/sludge variety from the southeastern United States, in the guise of Sourvein and their latest album Black Fangs. Formed in North Carolina, these guys have been around for quite some time now– since 1993– and that really isn’t much of a [...]

Indianapolis doom crew, The Gates Of Slumber, have quietly been going about their business for a few years now – their last album ‘Hymns Of Blood And Thunder’ was the first of theirs I’d heard but was already their fourth full-length release in five years! Having gone back and checked [...]

From the wreckage of failed punk bands, the southeastern USofA brings us yet another powerhouse in the sludge/stoner/doom metal category– Black Tusk and their sophomore release Passage Through Purgatory. If it seems like I compare bands to Baroness and Kylesa a lot.. well, it’s because I really enjoy those bands [...]

Ooh, proper singing. I’d forgotten what that sounded like. Much as I’ve come to terms with cookie monster growling et al it makes a nice change to hear someone actually singing their heart out. And on The Last Caress of Light, Darkest Era’s excellent debut album, we get heart as [...]

Eryn Non Dae. – Hydra Lernaia

Eryn Non Dae. (or END. for short), who apparently have such a fondness for punctuation there’s a period in their name, is a rather interesting progressive metal band out of France. Their album Hydra Lernaia was originally released in 2009, but doesn’t seem to have had nearly as much exposure [...]

Ok, so maybe I lied a little with my last post, about the whole Southeastern United States-doom/stoner/sludge metal connection. Ok, so maybe not an outright lie, but an error of omission. Of course, that was before I’d ever even heard of Electric Wizard, stoner metal legends of the UK. Formed [...]

Transformation is the debut full length from Sonne Adam, who hail from Israel, and whose name means ‘Hater of Men’ in, appropriately enough, Hebrew. Sonne Adam bill themselves on their myspace as ‘death metal’, and the death metal they peddle falls firmly into the ‘old school’ camp. Recalling the sludgy [...]
