Latest Reviews - July 18, 2018
Longhare
(Radio Rebelde)
2018
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4.9 of 11
Genre: Heavy rock
Sounds Like: Asteroid, Kadavar, Overwhelming Colorfast
Longhare are a 3-piece heavy rock band hailing from Rijeka, Croatia. Their blend of music incorporates Kadavar-like blues fused with a blend of 70s and 90s influenced rock. There is a whopping 16 songs on this album that shift all over the place and some with no cohesive structure. Many of the track... Full Review and Video Clip
Julian Magalhaes
(Rise of the Eldrazi)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Progressive Metal
Sounds Like: Animals As Leaders, Scale The Summit
The power of album covers is a beautiful thing, that’s what drew us to Julian Magalhaes’ latest album Rise of the Eldrazi, plus we needed to know what an Eldrazi is. The Eldrazi is a creature from the game Magic The Gathering, in case you were wondering. We were a bit leery goin... Full Review and Video Clip
Weed Demon
(Astrological Passages)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Sludge, Doom
Sounds Like: Bongripper, Zoroaster, Steinsopp
Drug-laced sludge is what it’s all about in the Weed Demon camp. The foursome from Ohio delve deeper into the depths of fuzzed-out hallucioigenic doom on their second release Astrological Passages. Weed Demon do a fantastic job at captivating their audience, this album really takes ov... Full Review and Video Clip
Godhead Lizard
(ST)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Clutch, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity
Don’t let the oddball album cover and band name fool you. Godhead Lizard’s debut album is loaded with quality craftsmanship. Perhaps there is some distant relationship with one of our favorite bands, the Jesus Lizard, although no connectivity in sound. Hailing from Quebec Canada the four... Full Review and Video Clip
Zahir
(What Noise?)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.4 of 11
Genre: Noise rock
Sounds Like: Craw, The Jesus Lizard, Barkmarket
Zahir’s debut albumWhat Noise is a bludgeoning of aggressive noise-filled fuzz. Much akin to Jesus Lizard’s David Yow, Tambet Jurno does a wonderful job at the helm with an onslaught of steady vocal discord and dismay. The Estonian natives do a nice job of keeping things on track and not... Full Review and Video Clip
We Came From Space
(While You Were Away)
2018
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4.6 of 11
Genre: Progressive rock
Sounds Like: Porcupine Tree, Spock's Beard, Styx
The debut album from Pennsylvania's We Came From Space is a hodgepodge of choppy stabs at different progressive styles. Is this a concept album? Perhaps an attempt, but the flow is just painful to get through in one full rotation. A common theme we see from fly by night progressive rock band's is pu... Full Review and Video Clip
Witchskull
(Coven's Will)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 10.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Metal
Sounds Like: Dio, The Sword, Wounded Giant
There is something to be said for heartfelt, genuine, straight-shooting fucking heavy metal. Lead singer Marcus DePasquale is a diamond in the rough absolutely shining on WitchSkull’s sophomore release Coven’s Will. The Canberra, Australia natives deliver in a big way on their s...

Khan
(Vale)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.3 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: JIRM, 3rd Ear Experience
The prolific trio from Melbourne Australia have already put out their fourth release since their debut in February 2016. Their latest Vale is a full length heavy-psyche quest that navigates elaborately rich bass-lines through plenty of meandering yet complex psychedelic fuzz.

Turtle Skull
(ST)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.4 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock
Sounds Like: The Black Angels, The Warlocks, Rancho Relaxo
Australia has been a huge breeding ground for up and coming independent rock artists within the past couple years. Heavy psych rockers Turtle Skull are the latest to hit our radar. The five-piece from Sydney, Australia bring that hazy, repetitive fuzz sound on this debut release. The production is s... Full Review and Video Clip
Hashteroid
(ST)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.6 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Space metal
Sounds Like: Saviours, Fu Manchu, War Cloud
We are starting to see a comeback of the thrash metal scene as many stoner rock acts are diving headfirst in to this style. It’s stimulating and inspiring when these two genres collide. Hashteroid from Vancouver, British Columbia have unleashed a refreshing brand of stoner thrash upon us with ... Full Review and Video Clip
