The Vault: Mistress of the Dead – White Roses, White Coffin

Funeral doom is a pretty stable niche in the field of doom metal, but it tends to turn away most of those who are more attuned to the driving force of bands like Bog Oak, or really anything with a tempo that doesn't move at a pace so slow half a chord progression takes a […]

Cassette Assault – Hit It Hard With Sludge

In the past, when we've tossed tapes purposefully at your face; sometimes it's been a hit, sometimes a miss, depending on the tape.  This time we didn't want that, we wanted it all. no misses.  As the tapes come in, as well as anything else, we're picky now, preferring to review what we see in a positive […]

Interview With Bog Oak (Worship the Trees With Fire)

With all of the attention doom metal gets anymore, it's difficult to pick through the mess of wish-we-weres to find the no-one-can-defeat-uses.  But, aside from our awkwardly-worded opener, for which we apologize, deeply, the task is real, the difficulty true.  Let's face it, when anything rises in popularity everyone starts to jump on board until the […]

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, […]

Swallowed – Lunaterial

Today, you know what?  You know what guys and girls?  It's time for complete destruction of everything.  Let's tear it all down, let's rip out this thing called a soul that we don't believe in anyway and burn it into metaphysical ashes.  Let's take this thing called order and obliterate it and whatever remains we'll […]

Bludded Head – Reign in Bludd

Reign in Bludd, Bludded Head’s most recent ep-pun-ymous release, is a sweet relief, a breath of fresh air, gentle breeze kissing the soft and carefree cheek.  Sure, the band’s suitably riff-and-distortion heavy, and sure, vocalist Nevada Hill’s desperate and oft-thin warbles sound as though they were drummed up from one unnameable pit miles below the […]

Evadne – Dethroned of Light EP

In the world of doom metal, it's pretty simple to categorize any one band, in fact many of them sound so similar furthering delineating by way of another adjective is often fruitless, or better to say delusional.  However, if there's one clear derivation in the genre, it's funeral doom.  You've probably already heard of the […]

Вий – S/T

We were just totally in the mood for something terribly ugly today.  This one was actually discovered by accident, after checking out the Facebook page of SaturninE, who we reviewed only a few weeks ago.  Вий was an act playing with them in Italy for an underground doom gig that came up in the feed, […]

Hammerhands – Glaciers

Awhile ago during one of our Quick n' Dirty reviews, we gave a nasty review of a band called Hammer Fist and now this is a review of a band called Hammerhands, so the real question and the point of this review is what is tougher - a fist of hammer or hands of hammers?  Continue […]

Noothgrush/Coffins: Split LP

Any veteran of the doom metal scene is familiar with these two names, without a doubt.  That saves us a lot of time, see, because where we'd normally spend an introductory paragraph talking background and bio, we can now use that space to write pointless nothingness like this sentence, which you will still read because […]
