Latest Reviews - February 20, 2018
Psychic Lemon
(Frequency Rhythm Distortion)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Krautrock, Psychedelic
Sounds Like: Hawkwind, The Heads, Earthless
Is it possible we could be witnessing the rebirth of Krautrock? There are many signs of this genre making a huge comeback, not that it ever went anywhere. We just felt stoner rock and doom have stolen the spotlight from the heavy underground. Just check out the new Mother Engine album Hangar, or Full Review and Video Clip
Doppälgängär
(Melencholia)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 10 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Post metal, Sludge
Sounds Like: ISIS, Elder, Drude
Doppalgangar is peaceful heavy that will challenge your subwoofers to embrace some of the deepest bass chords we have heard in a long time. The Swedish trio go out of their way to really hone in on those simple melancholy low points. And when we talk about bringing it down this brings it down to a w... Full Review and Video Clip
Wolftooth
(ST)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Metal
Sounds Like: The Sword, Baroness, Corrosion of Conformity
From the up and coming heavy rock label Cursed Tongue Records comes an album stuffed to the gills with metal and stoner themes. Wolftooth, hailing from Richmond, Indiana has unleashed their debut full length upon us and man this... Full Review and Video Clip
Tentacle Wizard
(Bringer of False Light)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.3 of 11
Genre: Doom
Sounds Like: Bloodmoon, YOB
The debut album from the Serbian foursome features two bass guitars marching towards one hell of an undercurrent. The fretwork on lead-guitar provides inspirational contrast throughout. The lead vocals balance brooding pain and light-hearted inflection. Musta’s voice reminds us of a behemoth t... Full Review and Video Clip
Astral Mass
(ST)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Heavy psych rock
Sounds Like: Clutch, Orange Goblin, Crowbar
We be suckahs for great space album art and tremendous galactic song titles. Astral Mass’ self-titled debut is a brooding mouthful of testosterone and abrasive vocals. The trio, hailing from Indianapolis, unleash their debut which will resonate for fans of Clutch and Crowbar. The album blends ... Full Review and Video Clip
The Curf
(Death and Love)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Heavy psych rock
Sounds Like: Sons of Otis, Roachpowder, Low Orbit
Dense, trippy and spacey sludge rock is what The Curf bring on their latest release Death and Love. The threesome from Greece has released a beast upon the sludge rock universe. This album is loaded with sedated smoked-filled riffs, grinding stoned grooves and atmospheric sludge to boot. Th... Full Review and Video Clip
The Fandey Witchcult
(Hexordiem)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 7.5 of 11
Genre: Doom
Sounds Like: Acid King, Windhand
Acid doom from Singapore! Very cultish indeed, to the point where the band has essentially developed their own cult-laden language. The band's debut features some very original doom endeavors and melodies that hold their own. The album flows well with subtle whisper filled and distorted vocals set a... Full Review and Video Clip
War Cloud
(ST)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.7 of 11
Genre: Stoner rock, Metal
Sounds Like: Floating Goat, Bad Wizard, Iron Maiden
The stoner metal scene has just received a kick in the gut with the debut release from War Cloud. The three-piece busting out of Oakland, California has reinvigorated our love for all things metal with their fervor and ambitious stoner metal shredding. War Cloud is brilliant at leveraging classic me... Full Review and Video Clip
Blood Fire Moon
(Ready to Roll)
2017
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.1 of 11
Genre: Rock
Sounds Like: Tumbleweed
What a great album cover to lure us in, it’s vibrant and what’s not to like about a skull and a crow? We thought this could be some new fuzz to add to our heavy rotation. However, the debut EP from The Netherlands-based BolldFireMoon is far from all fuzzy, it’s a mid-tempo rock alb... Full Review and Video Clip
Cymothoa
(Destination Exile)
2017
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.8 of 11
Genre: Progressive metal, Industrial
Sounds Like: Mastodon, Lagwagon, Burnt By The Sun
There is not enough instrumental metal in the world and we have identified a clear need for this genre. For those that love the shred but prefer not to put up with incessant death metal vocals or lofty/sappy over the top prog rock pipes with death metal vocals or sappy angelic prog metal pipes, ther...
