Album of the Day: The Wounded Kings – Consolamentum

Posted on Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Consolamentum is the fourth full-length from increasingly progressive UK-based doomers The Wounded Kings and also their debut on Candlelight Records. It’s also their most consistent album-to-album lineup in the band since 2010′s The Shadow over Atlantis followed 2008′s Embrace of the Narrow House debut with […]

Album of the Day: Slough Feg – Digital Resistance

Posted on Friday, February 14th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Moral superiority suits San Francisco metallers Slough Feg. Their sound, rooted in NWOBHM traditions and met with righteousness culled from Celtic folk, is neither that simple nor that limited. They reside in that same hallowed realm of underappreciation as Voivod, whose Killing Technology is lyrically […]

Album of the Day: Blackfinger – Blackfinger

Posted on Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: It’s unavoidable when it comes to Blackfinger, so one might as well just come out and say it: Yes, Eric Wagner used to be in Trouble, and as a member of that band he had a hand in crafting some of the best American doom […]

Album of the Day: Papir – IIII

Posted on Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: IIII is the fourth Papir album in about as many years. The Copenhagen trio of guitarist Nicklas Sørensen, bassist Christian Becher Clausen and drummer Christoffer Brøchmann made a self-titled debut in 2010 and followed in 2011 with Stundum, their first release on El Paraiso Records, […]

Album of the Day: Conan – Blood Eagle

Posted on Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: It has been a substantial two years since UK megadoomers Conan made their full-length debut with Monnos through Burning World Records in 2012. That album followed a 2011 split with Slomatics  and Conan‘s 2010 hello to the world, the thunderous Horseback Battle Hammer EP, and […]

Album of the Day: Before the Eyewall – S/T

Posted on Sunday, January 12th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: The self-released, self-titled debut full-length from Columbus, Ohio’s Before the Eyewall is the kind of record that’s going to surprise a lot of people who hear it in a very positive way, and by that I mean it’s really fucking heavy. An instrumental guitar, synth, […]

Album of the Day: Mühr – Messiah

Posted on Friday, January 10th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Then a trio, Amsterdam-based tonal weightlifters Mühr made their debut in 2010 with the two-song, 24-minute Shepherd / Blood EP, which cobbled together pyramids of heavy stone from molten riffs, the thickest I’d heard come from the Netherlands since Toner Low. The follow-up full-length from […]

Album of the Day: Alcest – Shelter

Posted on Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Shelter, the fourth album by Parisian post-black metal outfit Alcest, is a project of discovery. The narrative (blessings and peace upon it) has it that the band — comprised in its studio incarnation of guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, vocalist and principal songwriter Stéphane “Neige” Paut and […]

Album of the Day: EYE – Second Sight

Posted on Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: Birthed in a not-at-all cosmic reality known as Columbus, Ohio, the four-piece space rock outfit EYE nonetheless execute their sound with classical majesty on their sophomore full-length, Second Sight. Their first outing, 2011′s Center of the Sun, was gorgeous enough to get the attention of […]
