Album of the Day: Fórn – The Departure Of Consciousness

Posted on Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

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 on Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

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 on Monday, August 25th, 2014

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 on Sunday, August 24th, 2014

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 on Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

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 […]

Album of the Day: White Hills – Glitter Glamour Atrocity

Posted on Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: Originally released in 2007, White Hills second album Glitter Glamour Atrocity was a limited release affair of about 500 copies and has long since become something of a collectors item for fans. It is with fortuitous timing and a capitalisation on the current cult […]

Album of the Day: Sólstafir – Ótta

Posted on Thursday, August 21st, 2014

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 on Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

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 on Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

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 […]
