Album of the Day: The Shrine – Bless Off

Posted on Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: “I’ve got no eternity and I’ve got no past, I’ve got no destiny man, my future’s fading fast, I’m a Primitive Blast!” …rang the immortal call-to-arms from The Shrine’s self-diagnosing Primitive Blast record back in 2012 and never could a truer description befall such […]

Album of the Day: The Cosmic Dead – EasterFaust

Posted on Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The first time I ever saw The Cosmic Dead live, they were playing a double set at Mono, a vegan cafe / awesome record store nestled in a remote corner of Glasgow’s Merchant City. As I was walking to the venue, I heard a […]

Album of the Day: Nothing – Guilty Of Everything

Posted on Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Holy hell this is one refreshing album. It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a full album in the way I’m enjoying this. I’m still trying to pinpoint some genres to pigeon hole this into but there’s so many that it’s fucking difficult […]

Album of the Day: Slomatics – Estron

Posted on Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: This may be an unusual way to begin, but don’t put the album on just yet. Look at that cover. Look at that artwork. Look harder. Look again and then again. Breathe it all in. Soak in that humidity. Taste that otherworldly atmosphere. Feel […]

Album of the Day: Bast – Spectres

Posted on Friday, February 7th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: It’s been a long time coming for Kingston-based black metal / doom band Bast, but this year finally marks the arrival of their long overdue debut album Spectres. Originally formed as a two-piece back in 2008, Bast have been a sporadic but always welcome […]

Album of the Day: Kuolemanlaakso – Tulijoutsen

Posted on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: ‘Kuolemanlaakso’ is Finnish for ‘Death Valley’. That’s pretty metal to start us off. Kuolemanlaakso are also only onto their second record, which is more surprising considering the assuredness with which they ply their craft. ‘Tulijoutsen’, which translates to ‘The Fire Swan’, is a thunderous […]

Album of the Day: The Warlocks – Skull Worship

Posted on Monday, January 20th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: People always remark at the frequency of the word ‘legend’ in modern conversation. A legend is a mate that held down more pints than you at the Brew Dog. A legend is a mate that throws himself around like a rag doll at a […]

Album of the Day: Indian – From All Purity

Posted on Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: It’s cold; almost zero degrees with an icy Western breeze. It’s dark; nearly black, but the pale dawn sun is just beginning to penetrate the horizon and its grey-orange outburst gradually illuminates the low-hanging mist adorning the farmland around me. It’s a Monday and, […]

Album of the Day: Yuri Gagarin – S/T

Posted on Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Yuri Gagarin, according to all non-Biblical, non-religious sources, was the first human to enter space. He died in 1968. Now if you take 1968 as a year in music, you have iconic releases by Silver Apples & The Velvet Underground, two releases apiece by […]
