Latest Reviews - May 18, 2018
Cosmic Fall
(In Search of Outer Space)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.2 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Heavy psych rock, Stoner rock, Psychedelic
Sounds Like: Earthless, 3rd Ear Experience, Samsara Blues Experiment
Third full length album in three years, these guys could be the busiest instrumental psych rock band today. With the release of First Fall (2016), Kick Out The Jams (2017) and now In Search of Outer Space, we have a beautiful array of mind-expanding rich tunes to get lost ... Full Review and Video Clip
Sea of Flame
(Ballast)
2018
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.5 of 11
Genre: Hard rock
Sounds Like: Orange Goblin, Alabama Thunderpussy, Disturbed
Sea of Flame hailing from Denver, Colorado throw down some homegrown hard rockin tunes on their latest release Ballast. The foursome let loose five tracks of bluesy rock on this album, think of a lite version of Orange Goblin or Alabama Thunderpussy. Vocalist Miles Skoog resembles a bluesy ...

Green Altar
(Heavy Side of the River)
2018
Staff Rating: Turn this to 4.9 of 11
Genre: Doom, Black Metal
Sounds Like: Diamanda Galas, Grave Upheaval, Eyehategod
We were digging the album title and ominous bass doom metal undercurrent from the opening track, but those fucking vocals … eesh. While we do have the patience of saints when it comes to previewing new music, we felt beaten up after this one. All hail Green Altar from Sioux Falls South Dakota... Full Review and Video Clip
Pyraweed
(Green Jinn)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.8 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Doom, Sludge
Sounds Like: Sleep, YOB, Bongzilla
Since 2015 the trio from Baku, Azerbaijan have flown well under our radar. Perhaps they fell victim to the ‘weed’ titled band pool that had become so saturated in the last decade and we sluffed them off. Boy were we fucking remiss. Behold Pyraweed and their sensational 38 minutes 3 song ... Full Review and Video Clip
Atomic Mold
(Hybrid Slow Flood)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.3 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Stonerrock, Heavy psych rock
Sounds Like: Glowsun, Kyuss, Sons of Otis
With the plethora of heavy fuzz albums popping up all over the place and sounding eerily similar, we have been in search of something a bit different. The hypnotic fuzz from Italy’s Atomic Mold is exactly what we have been in search of. Hybrid Slow Flood, the bands’ third releas... Full Review and Video Clip
JIRM
(Surge Ex Monumentis)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 10.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Psychedelic, Rock, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Floater, Katatonia, Earthless
While they may have rebranded into the acronym JIRM (formerly Jeremy Irons and the Ratgang Malibus), the Swedish natives stay true to their core sound. A core sound that engulfs the listener into some sort of existential unique out of body endeavor. Perhaps a religious experience or calling from bey... Full Review and Video Clip
Vimana
(The Collapse EP)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.9 of 11
Genre: Grindcore, Death Metal, Mathcore
Sounds Like: Farmhouse Killings, Pig Destroyer, Carcass
Distinct, refreshing and fucking heavy. Vimana hailing from Denver and Seattle unleash their debut EP entitled The Collapse. This EP pushes the heavy meter to great lengths but maintains pristine clarity and contrast. Vimana features members of Cephalic Carnage, Vale of Pnath, Swashbuckle a... Full Review and Video Clip
Enchantelope
(Natural 20)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 8.6 of 11
Genre: Heavy rock, Stoner rock
Sounds Like: Red Fang, Doomriders, Dead Quiet
Our quest for heaviness has led us to Detroit, Michigan where we discovered the heavy rock prowess of Enchantelope. Their debut album Natural 20 has landed in our rotation and impressed the shit out of our editors. Mike Palm (bass and drums) and Steve Angers (guitar and vocals) are the mast... Full Review and Video Clip
Gnaw Their Tongues
(Genocidal Majesty)
2018
Staff Rating: Turn this to 5.3 of 11
Genre: Grindcore, Experimental, Black Metal
Sounds Like: Dead Cross, Pig Destroyer, Bloodyminded
A deep descent into darkness and anguish ensues on the follow-up to 2016’s Hymns For the Broken, Swollen, and Silent. Gnaw Their Tongues’ latest onslaught entitled Genocidal Majesty is saturated with tortured cries and lackluster flat-lined noise. Industrial distortion ... Full Review and Video Clip
Deathbell
(With The Beyond)
2018
Staff Rating: Crank this to 9.5 of 11
|    Editor's Pick
Genre: Doom
Sounds Like: Acid King, Windhand, Pallbearer
Sit back, grab your favorite adult beverage and soak in the cosmic doom of Deathbell. The foursome from Toulouse, France hit all the right notes on their debut release With The Beyond, it’s majestic heaviness at its finest. Lead singer Lauren Gaynor is a refreshing vocalist in the doom genre. ... Full Review and Video Clip
