Arbor Lights
(Hatherton Lake)
2013
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.3 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Post rock
Sounds Like: Coldbones, Cleft, sleepmakeswaves
Where the hell have we been the past 4 years, letting Arbor Lights slip through our radar is a major oversight. The foursome from Birmingham, UK has recently enlightened us with their 2013 debut album Hatheron Lake. Often we find instrumental Post-rock bands can sound very similar to one an...

Vermin Lord
(Anguish)
2016
Staff Rating: Turn this to 2.8 of 11
Genre: Black Metal
Sounds Like: Diamanda Galas, Take
Welcome to the dark atmospheric world of Vermin Lord. What is essentially a solo project led by Teo Acosta out of Seattle, Washington, is certainly a unique experience. Unique in that Vermin Lord sounds like a muppet in constant asphyxiation. Or should we say a critter of some sort in harrowing pain... Full Review and Video Clip
TarLung
(Void)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Sludge rock
Sounds Like: Church of Misery, Deadbird, Bongzilla
Sludge blues trio Tarlung from Vienna, Austria are back with more bludgeoning, rhythmic doom on their new EP Void. What we have come to love about Tarlung is their ability to incorporate a foundation of blues into their sludge-filled music. If you’re a fan of the doom/sludge genre than prepare...

Harmon Den
(Deepcold)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Post rock, Ambient post-rock
Sounds Like: Shipwrecks, Legendary Skies, Ephemeral
Are you looking for a very mellow post-rock album that will impress you sonically and test the lower depths of your speakers? Well we recommend you take deepcold along with you if you are in the market to purchase speakers. It will certainly weed out the weak speakers in a way many albums w... Full Review and Video Clip
Black Hill
(Lost Rivers)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Acoustic, Post rock
Sounds Like: Erudite Stoner, Michael Hedges
Guitarist/songwriter Csarnogurszky István from Hungary is one hell of a talent flying under the radar. Going by the alias Musicformessier, he has many side projects, one being Post-rock band Silent Island, which is where we discovered his talents. Another is a solo project known as Black Hill...

|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic, Sludge rock
Sounds Like: Hookworms, Dead Meadow
Wow, what a way to kick off the New Year. These fuckers can play some deep authentic psychedelic spacial rock. Credit to Jesse DeNobrega the album artist who lured us in to preview this one with his amazingly vibrant and unique cover. Hailing from Toronto Canada, the four piece band have released th...

Gorilla Pulp
(Peyote Queen)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Sheavy, The Sword
Gritty straight 'atcha stoner rock is what Gorilla Pulp is about. Maurice Flee does a nice job providing the grit on lead vocals, but ultimately detracts from the contrast that makes stoner rock so invigorating. On Peyote Queen, the band’s second release, Flee provides a ton of energy... Full Review and Video Clip
Elbrus
(ST)
2016
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Heavy rock, Blues
Sounds Like: Wolf People, All Them Witches, Cream
Before we dive into the music of Elbrus, take in the beauty of this album cover from the creative mind of Adam Burke. What a terrific painting to lure us into the band, we need to get this artist on our Homage to the ArtistFull Review and Video Clip
