Psychedelic Spacelord (2018)
Crank this to 8.1 of 11
Genre: Space rock
Sounds Like: The Flaming Lips, The Allman Brothers
Psychedelic Spacelord features one track spanning nearly 47 minutes. The reality is it’s actually two songs blended, at about halfway through the song comes to a halt and quickly picks back up into steady jam mode. The Norwegian space enthusiasts have been quite prolific putting out their nint...

Thee Scarecrows AKA
Stuffin' 'n' Splinters (2018)
Crank this to 7.8 of 11
Genre: Psychobilly, Bluegrass
Sounds Like: Mad Sin, Reverend Peyton
Every heavy collection needs some knee slappin’ psychobilly. We find this genre to never fail during the middle of a good party or at the heart of a tailgating affair. Now if we told you a hillbilly band from the United Kingdom peaked our interest hopefully your ears would perk up just a littl...

Women of the Wand (2018)
Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Genre: Doom, Sludge
Sounds Like: Church of Misery, Beastmaker, Haunted
Straight out of Sydney, Australia welcome three-piece sludge outfit Potion. Their second release is a concoction of filthy doom, sludge and a pinch of black metal thrown in to create this almighty two-song EP Women of the Wand. The bludgeoning riffage is very strong coupled by the sinister,...

Bog Wizard
Campaign (2018)
Turn this to 5.9 of 11
Genre: Doom
Sounds Like: Conan, Khemmis, Om
A two piece doom band hailing from Michigan is something we will aways entertain. Bog Wizard’s debut was apparently in the works for over a decade built off of weekend jam sessions between Ben and Harlen. The EP is intriguing at first listen primarily due to its dark tones and prodding rhythms...

King Buffalo
Longing to be the Mountain (2018)
Crank this to 10.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stoner rock, Psychedelic
Sounds Like: All Them Witches, Kings of Frog Island
King Buffalo are an animal all to themselves. They breathe a different kind of heavy as they separate from the pack with their patient and pensive dark atmosphere. Their heavy holds significant weight in our eyes as we frequent majestic New England hikes and absorb all of what King Buffalo have to o...

The Sword Woman (2018)
Crank this to 8.3 of 11
Genre: Doom, Metal
Sounds Like: Devil Electric, Solitude Aeturnus, Windhand
The combination of doom and power metal is a force to be reckoned with. Smoulder, hailing from Toronto have conquered the challenge of fusing pure 80s doom and power metal with a hint of modern day heaviness into this three song EP. Vocalist Sarah Ann really took us by surprise and is the highlight ...

The self-titled debut album from Rivers of Gore celebrates experimental fuzz and jam-doom to its fullest. Former members of Vinnum Sabbathi, Bloodwitch, and Powertrip join forces from the Mexico City underground heavy music scene to bring you a pensive journey through very dark tunnels. While the pr...

Genre: Progressive metal, Sludge
Sounds Like: High on Fire, Mastodon, Gojira
When it comes to progressive metal and sludge, it can be overwhelming trying to weed through tens of thousands of bands that sound exactly the same. You want that one band that breaks barriers and explores upon their genre. Look no further than Witch Ripper’s latest behemoth, Homestead. It&rsq...
