Album of the Day: Gnaw Their Tongues – Abyss of Longing Throats

Posted on Friday, September 11th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Heathen Harvest: Gnaw Their Tongues have delivered another hauntingly mechanized full-length album which will leave a range of effects on all listeners, varying from trembling night terrors, violent fantasies, and an overall coating of uncomfortableness. Mories, the solo conspirator behind Gnaw Their Tongues, holds a huge passion […]

Album of the Day: My Dying Bride – Feel The Misery

Posted on Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Fans of My Dying Bride know what to expect – with nearly 25 years of consistently stellar material, it’s reasonable to think that their latest epic dirge, Feel The Misery would easily meet expectations if not outright exceed them; they’ve rewritten the history of […]

Album of the Day: Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving – Yield To Despair

Posted on Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Like a continuation from something unheard, Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving plunge into immediate doom with crushed bass and drums at a death march; any introduction for the uninitiated is left to imagery from the album art and title, Yield To Despair. And yield we must […]

Album of the Day: Behold! The Monolith – Architects of the Void

Posted on Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: There’s no getting away with it really. Heavy metal and all its sub-genres is hardly the most subtle of things and for every band who attempts something a bit more delicate, there will be ten bands who bludgeon it back down with oversized riffs […]

Album of the day: Khemmis – Absolution

Posted on Monday, September 7th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Invisible Oranges: There has been a deluge of upstart doom bands over the last decade, some of them great (Kongh, Pallbearer, Orchid) and many others not so much (seriously, there are way too many to name). The oversaturation point for low and slow approaches quickly, so new […]

Album of the day: Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats – The Night Creeper

Posted on Friday, September 4th, 2015

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Looking at the ascendancy of the UK’s Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats (often stylized with a lowercase ‘d’ on the last word) over the last half-decade is like staring into the abyss of our own worst impulses, and it seems unlikely the band would have […]

Album of the Day: Dead to a Dying World – Litany

Posted on Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Pitchfork: For a moment, you think that the onslaught is over, that after eight minutes of dramatic strings and overdriven guitars, punishing drums and punished vocals, the big Texas metal band Dead to a Dying World will at last offer a respite.  After all, they’ve already detailed […]

Album of the Day: Wildlights – S/T

Posted on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Hailing from Wilmington, North Carolina, here is a story of two buddies, one a drummer from Thunderlip!, one a frontman and guitarist for ASG, never quite being able to make time to write and perform together. Wildlights (formerly known as Crusades) marks the point in […]

Album of the Day: Nibiru – Padmalotus

Posted on Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Praise for Nibiru‘s Padmalotus from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Those who fancy a little didgeridoo in their doom, get ready for the latest from esoteric Italian doom-psych cult Nibiru, who have returned to visit our plane of existence again, bringing with them another intense new set of sonic rituals. The […]
