Album of the day: Karma to Burn – V

Posted on Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Among the many routes to take, Karma to Burn has always been one of the most direct lines to the riff. The West Virginian trio’s instrumental approach is among the most bullshit-free in all of heavy rock, and that has remained the case following their […]

Monday Song: Karma To Burn – Cynics

Posted on Monday, May 30th, 2011

Every Monday morning we’ll post a kick-ass song to get your week going!

Album of the day: Loss – Despond

Posted on Monday, May 30th, 2011

Lovingly pinched from Stereokiller: I’m going to be brutally honest and tell all of you that my experience in the realm of “funeral doom” is quite limited, but I will do my best to write this review from the standpoint of someone who appreciates all forms of metal. Though I […]

Album of the day: Hexvessel – Dawnbearer

Posted on Sunday, May 29th, 2011

Here’s a gem released earlier this year that we neglected to share with our beloved Roadburn readers. Please excuse the oversight! Blame it on festival fever… Lovingly pinched from Avant-garde Metal: This album has been my subtle companion for a while now, caressing and soothing my soul at every spare […]

Album of the day: Premonition 13 – 13

Posted on Saturday, May 28th, 2011

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: If legendary doom guitarist/vocalist Scott “Wino” Weinrich has proven anything over the course of his career, it’s that he’s a fan of the trio. Between The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, The Hidden Hand and his Wino solo outfit, there’s obviously something about the chemistry of three […]

Album of the day: A Storm of Light – As The Valley Of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade

Posted on Friday, May 27th, 2011

Praise for A Storm of Light‘s As The Valley Of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Latest slab of epic, apocalyptic, psychedelic doom from A Storm Of Light, the project of Josh Graham, who also plays in Red Sparowes, Blood And Time, and of course […]

Album of the day: Sourvein – Black Fangs

Posted on Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: If long-running North Carolinian sludge outfit Sourvein are anything, they’re uncompromising. Those familiar with their work know what’s coming, but that doesn’t make the impact of their music any less devastating or abrasive. Led by frontman T-Roy Medlin, they began in 1993 and have seen […]

Album of the day: Blut Aus Nord – 777 Sect(s)

Posted on Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Lovingly pinched from Sonic Abuse: Having recently reissued the classic ‘the mystical beast of rebellion’ album, Blut Aus Nord are back, not only with a new album, but with the first part of a monstrous trilogy that sees their twisted, avant-garde take on black metal bend even further out of […]

Ghost – Roadburn 2011: Qualitly Fan Filmed Video Footage On Line!

Posted on Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Last month, Ghost delighted an unsuspecting crowd of new devotees with a phantasmal performance at the 2011 Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland. The incorporeal beings were captured by a lucky attendee who – by posting the footage online – spreads the sect’s sacrilegious scripture to new and nescient minds across […]
