If you are a fan of stellar riffs and molasses-thick distorted guitar tone, Floor has everything you want in music. These Floridian sludge / pop pioneers get a lot of comparisons to lead singer / guitarist Steve Brooks other band, Torche — and rightfully so — with his instantly recognizable […]

Roadburn Approved

Album of the Day:
Yob – Clearing The Path To Ascend
Posted: September 23, 2014 at 3:51 pm
Yob - Clearing The Path To Ascend

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: It’s been a long, hard road for Yob, an uphill journey beset with obstacles – the first lineup of the band breaking up, subsequent legal issues around mainman Mike Scheidt’s interrim band Middian and Scheidt’s own struggles with his personal demons – but ever […]

Album of the Day:
Fórn – The Departure Of Consciousness
Posted: August 27, 2014 at 1:26 pm
Forn - The Departure Of Consciousness

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The Departure of Consciousness is the soundtrack to collapse – the slow, final collapse of a dying relationship, the slow cascade of brick and mortar from a collapsing building or the terrifying claustrophobia of the inward collapse of the human mind, all are evoked […]

Album of the Day:
Witch Mountain – Mobile of Angels
Posted: August 26, 2014 at 3:53 pm
witch-mountain-mobile-of-angels

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Certainly the announcement that vocalist Uta Plotkin will leave Witch Mountain following their Fall US tour with Nik Turner’s Hawkwind places Mobile of Angels, the band’s fourth album overall and third with Plotkin fronting, into a different context. If nothing else, it lets lyrics longing […]

Album of the Day:
Funerary – Starless Aeon
Posted: August 25, 2014 at 4:31 pm
Funerary - Starless Aeon

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Funerary are still relatively unknown, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t talented. In fact, the underground has always been a place full of exciting talents a lot of people aren’t aware of. Thanks to the Internet, its now easier to discover and explore them. […]

Album of the Day:
Space Witch – S/T
Posted: August 24, 2014 at 2:29 pm
Space Witch

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: With just two tracks making up this album, and the only vocals being the apocalyptic sample of mankind’s destruction that opens the proceedings, Space Witch have really set a challenge for their listeners in this eponymous debut album. I’m not known for backing down readily, […]

Album of the Day:
Lonely Kamel – Shit City
Posted: August 23, 2014 at 7:49 am
lonely kamel - shit-city

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: It’s still unusual to find that one of Europe’s strongest exports of desert rock, especially with a name like Lonely Kamel, hails from the frost-bitten lands of Norway, culturally famed for its black metal output. Yet on the brink of releasing their fourth studio […]
