CURSUS – S/T (Like, Where’s the Bass Maaannn?)

CURSUS – S/T (Like, Where’s the Bass Maaannn?)

Yeah listen. Yo. Making music is hard. Trying to do something new in music, even harder. Trying to do something without something expected, waaayyy harrrrddder. Every genre has expectations looming over it, and I don't mean just metal in general or all the kabillions of subsubgenres we have now, I mean for anything. For doom metal, […]

Mourners Lament – We All Be Given (We All Be Boring, More Like)

Yeah, you know, so everything about this album is boring. Even this review is boring, why read it? I was first drawn to the art, but much like the music after several experiences with it I'm not sure I know what the hell I'm looking at and I'm too bored to try anymore. What at […]

Label EXPOSED – Caligari Records

Well, it's been awhile since we did one of these, in fact back before the new site became active, so it has to have been about three or four years now.  And what a fitting reunion!  We have here, that's right, a label exposure for Caligari Records, owned and run by the former owner/editor of […]

Grime – Circle of Molesters

Sludge is an interesting genre.  It's something like grindcore, but with way less blast beats to cover up crap riffs, and more of a groove.  As such, one can consider it grindcore gone meinstreem, or perhaps better to say a genre that can capture the attention of more than a distinct few weirdos who only […]

Shrine of the Serpent – S/T

How slow can slow be?  If one gets too slow can that slowly lead to slow degradation?  Or is all slow good if we're talking about doom?  The word doom itself implies a slowing, if you will, so slow must be the way of the word and the truth, correct?  Well, yes, theoretically, provided the […]

Foehammer – S/T

Everyone talks about apps these days.  There's an app for breastfeeding, there's an app that apps that, we think, and there's probably an app for how many bananas you ate in the past year, we just haven't double-checked.  Well, let's say this, there needs to be a Foehammer app.  What would it do?  Just play […]

Sigihl – Trauermärsche (And a Tango Upon the World’s Grave)

Sigihl – Trauermärsche (And a Tango Upon the World’s Grave)

Sat on this one for awhile.  But it was much unlike the usual type of sitting.  It wasn't like sitting on your easy chair, or a lawn chair, or an armchair, it was more like a chair of nails, such as would have been used during the Witch Craze.  This would be a useful analogy […]

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 […]

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 […]
