Oceanwake – Sunless

Oceanwake – Sunless

Slower varieties of doom, those that enter the realm of the funereal, are often overlooked except by this sick, vibrant niche of freakos who find themselves content with purposefully getting jaundice and sitting in the darkness after the electricity is shut off, their bills long unpaid after hours of self-induced misery.  All that remains is […]

Sewer Goddess – Painlust

Sewer Goddess – Painlust

If you were one of the five people who was paying attention on our Facebook page today, apparently saying the word ‘girl’ anywhere near the word ‘noise’ incites a mental riot inside those who think you’re making some trite comment about ‘girl noise’.  First off, we weren’t.  Second off, we know exactly what said user […]

Abstracter – Wound Empire

Boy, these guys are persistent as all hell.  That’s a lot of persistence, if you didn’t know, using the word hell with anything is like ‘a lot’ but it sounds more kvlt.  And this persistence clearly came from a need to purge the soul, because when we first met Abstracter almost a year ago, we […]

Rorcal / Process of Guilt –  Split

Rorcal / Process of Guilt – Split

It’s always difficult to decide what to do with splits.  Sometimes we have a battle between bands, our own imaginary battle, and the victor gets to claim the title that results in some words posted on our site here and that’s about it.  Or, we ahave a new feature called “SPLITting Headache”, but decided it […]

Crowhurst – S/T

Crowhurst – S/T

Sometimes you look at something and you know it can’t be anything but mind-bending.  You know after listening you’re not going to be the same person, you’re going to be something else and probably won’t remember anything that came prior.  Who am I?  How did I get here?  You move your eyes around the immediate […]

Caldera – Centralia EP

Out of any musical genres out there, doom metal bands always seem to get it right when it comes to the naming process.  It’s not like that absolute glut of stupidity during the nineties where everything was tagged as “alternative” even though there were like fifty different types of music.  But they all had this […]

Generichrist – Taste of Death

Generichrist – Taste of Death

We just love being confused, it’s good for our blood.  In fact, you know, write this down, if something’s hard to pin down with a genre and you feel like a hack when you pull out some band comparisons because you completely lack the writing skills to explain it otherwise, it’s going to be good. […]

The Kill – Kill Them…All

\ \ \ \ \

The Kill – Kill Them…All

Typically, especially over the past five years, any time we’ve received a promo from a band that labels itself “grindcore”, it’s practically already set to become kindling, a Goodwill donation that sits there for years, or something just to destroy and take one’s anger out on in a time of need.  Seriously, rule of thumb, […]

Necro Deathmort – EP2

Necro Deathmort – EP2

We’re bandnamecist around here, completely coolnamesupremacist.  Cool name power.  Please understand, we were raised this way, or rather, we raised ourselves in such a way that we expect the best, not the better-than-most, the best.  And that’s what our readers expect.  Necro Deathmort is a name we’ve actually heard before, but honestly we ignored it […]

Twist Ending – Demo 2014

Twist Ending – Demo 2014

Alright, enough of this popularity game.  We shouldn’t even need to discuss a band’s level of fame in the first place, nor defend our reasons for reviewing something of “the above”.  So we are below, so we shall stay, most of the time.  What better way than music that incorporates practically everything one could desire […]
