Drug Honkey – Cloak of Skies

Doom metal is a genre close to collapse, I'm more and more sure of it. It has as much redundancy currently as NY hardcore and baby boomer punk, so think about it, do you really want to keep listening to it? It's far too hesitant to change when change is needed, and far too comfortable […]

Nevoa – The Absence of Void

Before I begin, I want to go out and say that if you're going to ask me to review your album or whatever, I would very much appreciate it you - I don't know, gave me the album? I've had a few people message me over the last few weeks about reviews and I want […]

Квітів Знедолених Берегів – За небокрай мрій

We've encountered a wonderfully diverse form of two types of metal from Eastern Europe over the past few years, in particular coming from Russia and the Ukraine.  Folk metal of the pagan variety, and doom metal, the latter often delivered to us by Russian-born Solitude Productions.  We could go off on a number of bands, […]
