Lenny Kaye Talks About His Apprearance (w/ Harsh Toke) at Roadburn Festival 2014

Posted: April 30, 2014 at 4:23 pm

“It’s perhaps fitting that Tilburg is the boyhood home of Vincent Van Gogh, since I can only imagine what his missing ear would make of the amps-on-stun overload that characterizes the Roadburn Festival. I am here courtesy of artistic director Walter Hoeijmakers, and Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, who is curating […]

Album of the Day:
Sólstafir – Ótta
Posted: August 21, 2014 at 8:00 am
SUA 331LPES Trigatefold.indd

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: With so many cookie-cutter bands around jumping into the nearest genre and ‘paying homage’ to all that has gone before, it’s sometimes difficult to get your head around exactly where a band like Sólstafir is coming from. Like all things new, it takes a bit […]

Album of the Day:
Joy – Under the Spell of Joy
Posted: August 20, 2014 at 12:50 pm
Joy - Under the Spell of Joy

Lovingly pinched from ThisIsNotAScene: Flutes! Kaftan! Action! Under the Spell of Joy begins with a smoky, swirling folky vibe of flutes and bewitching melodies before pounding in with thick, savage grooves, bug eyed, semi-shouted vocals on Miles Away – the sound bursting barely containable through the vintage gear. It takes […]

Album of the Day:
Pallbearer – Foundations Of Burden
Posted: August 19, 2014 at 1:03 pm
Pallbearer - Foundations Of Burden

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Pallbearer’s Sorrow and Extinction emerged as the sleeper (metal) album of 2012, eventually finding itself at the top of many end of year best lists and burned into the minds of listeners new to the scene; unfortunately, the signature strengths that define the core […]

Album of the Day:
The Heads – Everyone Knows That We Got Nowhere
Posted: August 18, 2014 at 3:25 pm
the heads - everybody knows we got nowhere

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: I shit you not, you goggle-eyed loons, but Bristol’s legendary (yet strangely unsung) psych-heroes The Heads are possibly the definitive uber-cult stoner-psych band of the late 20th/ early 21st century. I have a hunch that possibly the majority of people reading this review have […]

Album of the Day:
Panopticon – Roads To The North
Posted: July 31, 2014 at 4:15 pm
Panopticon - Roads To The North

Lovingly pinced from About.com: Heavy Metal: Austin Lunn has always maintained a visionary take on black metal with his Panopticon project. The last few albums have seen him perfect the combination of a folksy atmosphere with the jagged fury of raw black metal. That pairing is further experimented on during […]

Album of the Day:
Black Anvil – Hail Death
Posted: July 30, 2014 at 6:20 pm
Black Anvil - Hail Death

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: There’s been a bit of positive press lately (promotional stuff, mostly) about Black Anvil‘s cover of Kiss‘s ‘Under the Rose.’ The praise is well deserved: not only is the cover superb, it gives the classic song a slightly harder edge. It’s worth a listen. […]
