Album of the Day:
Inter Arma – The Paradise Gallows
Posted: July 1, 2016 at 1:21 pm
Inter Arma – The Paradise Gallows

Lovingly pinched from Heavy Blog Is Heavy: Part of what makes metal – slower metal, in particular – such a compelling force to investigate within today’s experimentation-driven musical landscape is that when a band tends to go for a longer record, a coupling of sounds must occur. That is to […]

Album of the day:
Iskra – Ruins
Posted: June 30, 2016 at 2:39 pm
Iskra - Ruins

Lovingly pinched from The Line Of Best Fit: Blackened crust punks Iskra are, let’s say, re-releasing Ruins, a fantastic 10-song LP they first self-released a year and a half ago, on Southern Lord. This version, however, collects three originals from a split EP they put out in 2011 and tacks […]

Album of the Day:
Mos Generator – Abyssinia
Posted: June 29, 2016 at 3:23 pm
Listenable Records

Lovingly pinched from MaximumVolumeMusic: In the build up to this record, Mos Generator main man Tony Reed has talked about wanting the record to represent some real growth and change. Literally he shook things up after the 2014 album Electric Mountain Majesty and in 2015 there was an entirely new […]

The Poisoned Glass - 10 Swords

Lovingly pinched from Louder Than War: Looming up out of the frozen wastes like a daemon General at the head a vast undead army comes The Poisoned Glass. With 10 Swords, doom metal veterans G. Stuart Dahlquist and Edgemont Martin, aka Edgy59 – both of whom cut their fangs in […]

Dylan Carlson & Coleman Grey – Falling With A Thousand Stars and Other Wonders From The House of Albion
Posted: June 27, 2016 at 10:09 am
DC

Lovingly pinched from Echoed And Dust: Dylan Carlson’s new album is Falling with a Thousand Stars and Other Wonders from the House of Albion. Well, new…  it’s newly released, but old in the tale of its own lengthy crowdfunding history, and old too in the folk resonances of the songs […]

Bossk – Audio Noir

Bossk - Audio Noir

Lovingly pinched from Echoes And Dust: I’ve known about Bossk for some years now, having collected their initial forays into recorded output back in 2007. If I recall correctly, I was just starting to explore (mostly) instrumental bands beyond Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky. The gateway to Bossk was […]
