“Herzlich willkommen auf TDATS #107, a collection of music from Austria. I was surprised at how little typical TDATS-ready music was recorded in this country.

Lovingly pinched from About.com: Heavy Metal: It’s been four years since the mighty Electric Wizard brewed up a full-length album in Black Masses. As the Wiz’s devoted fan base awaited their return in the form of new album Time to Die, the band itself took on a different form. Jus […]

Lovingly pinchd from Echoes And Dust: Winterfylleth are a very interesting proposition, and first introduced themselves with an incredible album called Ghosts of Heritage, which truly was a thing of wonder, with lyrical content that was based and seemingly more than keen on the middle ages history – or more […]

Praise for Botanist VI‘s Flora from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Another mysterious missive from the verdant realm, which can only mean one thing, the return of Botanist , our local eco-terrorist drum and dulcimer black metal band, who in fact, have actually expanded into a proper band, and have been […]

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 […]

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.
