Album of the day: Locrian / Horseback – New Dominions (12″)

Posted on Sunday, June 12th, 2011

Loving pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: I’m always personally excited to hear anything new from Locrian OR Horseback, so you can imagine how much I was looking forward to THIS.

Praise for  Gnod‘s Ingnodwetrust from Scott’s Music Reviews: The UK drone psych rockers are back with a new full length record. The Middlesex split LP was released earlier this year and I reviewed that already but this is something quite different. The A side is one long track called Tony’s […]

Posted on Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Praise for W.A.I.L.‘s Self-Titled from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: We may proclaim our love of French black metal practically every list, but if there was a single country who threatened the blackened supremacy, it would be Finland.

Album of the day: Atlantis- Mistress of Ghosts

Posted on Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Lovingly pinched from Rocked Up: The opening track of Atlantis’s second full-length studio album on Field Records, fizzes and clangs with an industrial hue beneath a wash of synthy fuzz that perhaps wouldn’t sound out-of-place on the Blade Runner soundtrack. It sets the tone for what is in the main, […]
